Dress Success!!

My last post was titled "Dress Mess" because I was having the hardest time sewing a dress.  I really think I'm more cut out for skirts or pillowcases (my two greatest - ahem - only successes thus far).  With some help from my awesome mom, though, I was able to finish the dress in time for the bridal shower!  My first big party in my new house went really well.  My mother-in-law even called me "the hostess with the mostest,"  to which I of course said "thank you" but on the inside said, "WHOO HOOOOOOO!!!!! I AM A SUCCESS AT LIFE!!!!"  My desserts were a hit, my house was clean, and I got lots of compliments on my dress.  I felt very proud. For some reason, hostessing makes me very happy.  Hostessing while wearing homemade clothes and trying successful new recipies?  Well, that's just paradise.  Here's some pics of the dress:

So there you have it - my new dress.  Aren't you proud of me??  That's okay, you don't have to be proud of me.  I'm pretty sure that I'm proud enough for the both of us.  ;-)
