This is getting exciting! I've got my clothes ready. That was easy. I just picked up Steve's suit from the cleaners. He's ready. Grandpa Bob took a little more doing. He had NO formal clothes. So, off to the thrift store we went and found the perfect suit for him. Shoes too. With a cleaning and some buffing, the get-up looks mighty spiffy! Our sons are all getting fitted for tuxes on Friday after the rehearsal. And then comes the rehearsal dinner. After that, we bed down in hotel rooms to get our beauty sleep for the big event the next day. I'll try to get lots of pictures to post here. All our sons have wives/fiancees, and I'm looking forward to seeing all those beautiful girls all dressed up and glowing. Various cousins will be attending the wedding, and I can hardly wait to see them! They're some of my favorite people in the world! And my brother's wife, Ruth, will be enthusiastically attending. What a treat! This whole gang is coming a long way to support Ely and Christina, so it's all very special!
Here is the dress I will wear to the wedding. The necklace was my mother's.

I will also wear my "lucky wedding dress" (a different dress) to the rehearsal dinner. This is the dress I wore to the last three weddings I've attended, and they've all been very successful marriages so far. So, I thought I'd better wear it at some point in order to help things along. Silly, but why not? Marriages need all the help they can get, right?

Darlene, you look so beautiful! I love the color of your dress and your mother's necklace is a delicately lovely touch. And honestly, I'm just gonna say it: I am seriously envious of your figure! OK, I am definitely going to start walking of doing something to shape up. You look GORGEOUS! Congratulations to your entire family.

Thank you for mentioning on my blog about this post...otherwise I would have never known my comment did not go through! You really do look beautiful and you are wearing one of my favorite colors. I often wear that color or one that is in that same family. I hope you post a picture of your 'lucky dress' too eventually. I will most definitely be with you tomorrow in spirit!
