It Still Fits!

So, as I was going through one of our crawlspaces this morning I came across the box that held my wedding gown. It isn't a fancy box, not one that I paid a few hundred dollars to buy and then a few hundred more to preserve the actual dress. Nope. It's a good 'ol Rubbermaid storage tote. When I opened it up I pulled out the garment bag that held the dress. I wonder why I even bother with the garment bag...it has a ton of rips in it! Anyway, Ella was all excited to see it so I pulled it out for her (read: almost got attacked by it when it came free from the box...think 90's wedding.....POUF!). Then, because I had pulled it out I decided to try it on. Lo and behold... it fit (I guess I gave away the hint of suspense and to whether or not it actually would by my title..)!! Amazing......

So, I'm about to go through my closet and switch over clothes and pack away the stuff I won't need until next winter where it will undoubtedly be unpacked in a much smaller closet. But we'll have more land, right? RIGHT?

Anyone know where I can get some boxes?

Random Fact of the Day: I actually weigh less now than when I got married, but everything has also shifted around a bit....

Oh, and Kath....I feel like breaking into the chorus of "Stick to the Status Quo" with all this confessing we're doing....!!

You should post a picture wearing the dress. I'd love to see it! :-)

I think that is a great idea!

I got a ton of boxes by posting on freecycle!

Kathi said...

Wow! Not many people can say that Jenn! Good for you. I DEFINITELY cannot fit into my wedding dress.

Wait...you're moving? Where?

Cheryl said...

Yes, yes, yes! I agree with Sue! Post a picture of you wearing it!
