Losing it, one red belt at a time

It's been a while since I wrote a blog, I would apologize and say I'll do better but we all know its a lie so I'll skip that, kay?

Anyway, Hailey's wedding is in 48 days. We found the reception center in January, we got the dress, the bridal party, the invitations, yada yada yada. Anyway, I want you to know that I have been in control, on top of this, had it all figured out. Until one little red belt caused made me lose it.

I should have known when we went bridesmaid dress shopping and the dresses were not only found at the first store, they were the only dresses the girls tried on, and they were on sale. Add to this the fact that the bridesmaids are three teenage girls and you see how truly momentous this is.  Hailey's future mother in law and I were sure we were in for a night of hell but we were in, out and on our way home in an hour. I should have known then that a piano was going to fall on my head.

The dresses are perfect, well, almost, they are black and white with a yellow belt. Black and white is great, but the yellow has got to go. The accent color of the wedding is red. I told the girls I would find them red belts to go with the dresses.

I have spent about eight hours this weekend looking for thin red belts. I went to every store within driving distance and looked online. I can find them online, for more than the dresses cost. Not gonna happen.

So, I've decided that red belts are like unicorns, everyone has heard of them but no one has actually seen one. I bought some red ribbon, think I can make it work?

All I can say is thank God for wine.
