Successes!

I am ecstatic to report success in two areas that have been bugging the crap out of me lately: a dress to wear to our son's wedding in June and a venue for the rehearsal dinner for said wedding. With help from blogging buddies these two items are now off my plate!

Janie, from Soundingforth, found the PERFECT dress last week out in Midland. To top off the color, cut, style, etc., it was on sale for $36. Can you beat that? I think not. It was not exactly the color my new daughter-in-law had suggested, but, when she saw the dress last night, she agreed that it was THE ONE!!!!

Snooty Primadona has also helped me in the venue department. Although none of her suggestions were used, she at least got me moving and looking at places in Oklahoma City. TBO and I made a trip up to OKC on Monday with the express goal of finding a venue. Actually, TBO did almost all the work once we were in OKC and got online and everything.,,thanks, honey. He set up the appointment for the place we ultimately contracted with and downtown we went. Everything was what I had envisioned and we had our son, the groom to be, with us and he approved also. We are set. Signed, sealed, not quite delivered, but I am confident we chose wisely. Before we left the restaurant, we decided to have lunch and try some of the entrees on the list for the dinner. Had a great server who was just the right amount of attentive. The food was excellent. And to top it off, when we got the check, the manager had comped our meals. I was blown away again. Now just the minor details of the invitations, response cards, decorations....

That is the kind of service that I just adore! PLEASE tell me where you decided on. We might need to go there next time we're in OKC.

I'm so glad everything is coming together for you. I am in total shock that you got *the perfect* dress for $36.00. Please tell me where you got it here in the Tall City (or where Janie found it). I think I need to go there, lol. No, I know I need to go there. I'd ask Janie, but haven't talked to her in weeks. She is one busy lady & my life seems like a flat tire next to hers!
