Picspam To Do List and Mini-Picspam

I have about 50,000 pictures I've been meaning to size, upload, and post. Someday I might get to them all. Today is decidedly not that day. Here's the full To Do list:

(1) Pictures from Disney World trip last September (oops)
(2) Pictures of new house, including deer in the back yard
(3) Pictures from New York City trip

It doesn't look like much, but each of those vacations have thousands of photos that I have to sort through and pick the ones I want to post before I can even get to the resizing and uploading. *Sigh* I love digital cameras but like everything else high tech in my life sometimes I wonder if the hassles equal the benefits.

While you are waiting for me to eventually get around to the big picspams, here's a mini pic spam. I leave in just under two weeks for two weeks in Germany (I foresee another thousands of photos item for the picspam to do list). The reason for the trip is that a family friend is getting married there the weekend in the middle of the trip. I went dress shopping and found two dresses that I love. I'm going to take them both and decide which to wear there, once I get a better feel for how dressy everyone else will be.

This is the first dress I bought. It is slightly more fun and flippant. The bottom is rather shiny and it is just made of awesome.
The second dress is more formal and I think it is absolutely gorgeous. I didn't buy it at first because the straps were way too long. I have a friend who sews and I dragged her to the store with me to look it over and tell me if it was easily alterable. She not only said it was but that she'd do it for me the next day. She took somewhere between four and four-and-a-half inches out of each strap but now it fits perfectly.


What's Taters, Precious?

Both dresses are awesome, but I love the blue one! You are a bombshell in it!

Thanks. I really like it and will most likely wear it for the wedding unless it turns out to be way too formal. My sense is that this will be a fancier wedding so I think it will be fine, but I'm not 100% sure.

They're both very pretty but the blue one comes in a 911. Yowza! Have you thought about an updo or3/4 and a pair of earrings to go with? You'll look great!

I've been trying to figure out the jewelry situation. I've got a perfect necklace and earring set to wear with the black outfit. I've got a great necklace for the blue one but no earrings that would work or I've got an OK necklace and earrings that would work with that. I'm thinking about taking the great necklace to do some shopping and seeing if I can find earrings.

I keep thinking that the dress and boots thing looks a little Bohemian or Gypsy, but then I can't decide if that's PC.

Ooooh, very nice!
