Grandma Dresses

First off, I wanted to say sorry to all those blogs that I subscribe to and regularly comment on. I haven't been around the computer much at all, but I promise in about a week I'll be back. Until then I know you guys understand why I'm not around much.

The trip to Venice yesterday was great. I was expecting it to be hot and crowded, but it really was neither. I'll try to post pics and more of a trip report tomorrow or the next day, but until then know there was the Great Train Adventure of 2009. No, I didn't miss the train, but it's a halfway interesting story so look for it soon.

Today we're all kind of resting and I made scones today. Orange and cranberry to be exact and they are delish. I've posted about them before, but I'm not taking the time to look for that post. If you want the recipe go on over to Andrea's blog and click the tab under recipes, you'll find it if you do a little searching. Sean is making steaks and potatoes tonight, so we're all looking forward to that.

My mom and I have been looking at some pictures of me when I was little today and they are a hoot. I'm not one to toot my own horn, but I was a very precocious and amusing child. One of these days I'll scan a few pictures so you can get a good laugh.

So, I've been wearing some of the dresses I recently ordered from Forever 21 and Sean made the comment the other day, "Why are you wearing all these grandma dresses?" I scoffed and told him they were fashionable. Well, today I was wearing this little number:



And I had two people compliment me on it. Both over the age of 40. Hmmm...maybe he was right?

I think it's cute too! I haven't really paid attention to what people are wearing, but I keep hearing about how in those dresses are.

I live in jeans and t shirts most of the time, so I guess I need to step it up a bit! lol

I think it's VERY cute! I was kind of jealous of all your cute dresses so I made a Forever 21 trip the other day, and I didn't see one cute dress in the whole joint. I think it's an online scam ;)

Sorry, all us oldies are remembering when we were young and similar dresses where in style. *sigh* All things old are new again. But never fear, my 18 year old daughter LOVES the style and has a ton of the maxi dresses.
