I hear ya, that is also part of the reason I stopped coming here a couple of years back. My life got busy and I felt like I had to cut something out so I decided to stop coming here. I enjoy coming somewhere like this because of all the scrap stuff but also because of the feeling of community. But it seemed like every time I posted something it got one or two replies even if it was asking for prayers or something meaningful whereas others could post a thread like they swept the floor today or something trivial and it would get a ton of comments. I have felt a lot more welcome since I have been back though and I am glad because I really do enjoy coming here.

Back on topic! Congrats on your weight loss! And on your dd's upcoming wedding! Weddings are always a fun time and if it motivated you to look and feel better about yourself then that is a wonderful bonus!

Guess I logged in here too late to see the pics. But I did see them on FB.

Inspite of what you or anyone else thinks, I do read the posts, but don't always respond. Even so, I do share everyone's happiness and grief.

Just wanted you all to know this....

Wow. That's what a call a mood swing. All dancing bananas in the first post and then an attack on 90 people, leaving everyone who has ever read and run feeling bad.

I dropped in earlier and then my DH called me to help him with something. I just came back now to leave a comment. I was going to congratulate you on the weight loss and say you looked good. I was going to leave my congratulations for Casey. But my pleasure at your happiness has been extinguished as effectively as if you'd slapped me across the face.

I'm sorry you're feeling insecure today, and I hope you feel more positive soon Christy. Really I do.

Well, I get anxious/nervous when I see 100 looks and no replies..so im thinking its people who arent really members here..."guests" they call them. Makes you wonder who they are...or at least it makes me wonder. I'm not comfortable leaving personal stuff up on here (and others do the same thing!!) Ive always deleted pics within a day or two of posting them...even my dogs pics LOL

Rosey - I dont think you looked 90 times or even three times..I am talking about the "others" who we dont know...no need to take it personal.

I feel that way about facebook, too. Because it's attached to my real name. Sure, if people dig they can put stuff together but I don't put pictures up on facebook and don't use my family's names there either. Pi$$ed me off to see my relatives had.

I was one of those 90 (for once - you must admit that I usually do post!) so that made it personal!

But moving on, I don't think there were 90 genuine readers. I think most of them were bots, not real people. We all need to remember that this is a public message board and any stranger can just drop in at any time; friend, stalker, ex-regular, someone with a chip on their shoulder, and people who are too shy to join in the chat. But I bet most of the views are from bots.

And back to the original subject, have you got your outfit organised yet? Are you wearing a hat?

thanks rosey - i probably am emotional more than usual this week!!! im happy and sad at the same time...plus super stressed out...ive done 99.8% of the planning by myself..with little input from my daughter..shes so laid back..she just says whaever LOL

.i did get my outfit...im not 100% happy with it...but its gonna have to do!! the original one i tried on was navy blue..cant wear that cause its the bridal party color...so i got a color that works with blondes (even fake blondes) its called "cherry" but its coral or salmon to me. i feel HUGE in it...and no i will not be wearing a hat....had you mentioned it sooner i might have considered it LOL

I think they only wear hats at British weddings now. Hmm... or maybe they still do in the south.

Is her colors just navy (and white?) or anything else?

navy blue bridesmaids dresses.
her dress is ivory
tablecloths are ivory
accents are silver and blue vases, stems of crystal flowers that light up with blue lights

so basically ivory, silver and navy blue...evening wedding - will be dark out pretty quick.

I'm sorry you got weirded out about the lookies, most people do family stuff on the weekends and only get to fly by here on their phones like me. I didn't want to post from it, it's a pain. Hope you get everything done and congrats on your weight loss!

LOL Me too!

Navy, white and silver sounds so pretty. Blue is really IN for weddings at the moment isn't it? Stephanie's was blue, and so was the wedding I sang at over Christmas.

And there were lots of hats at that one, and lots of giggles over them from the choir. One was an enormous, almost vertical creation attached to the side of this woman's head, all feathers and gauze. The people sitting the other side of her wouldn't have been able to see a thing round her!

Sorry I missed the pictures. 20 in March you say?! My DD turns 20 in March also. I personally can't imagine; but one of her friends from school (since elementary) got married in November. As long as they're both happy.
Hang in there Mama! Don't sweat the small stuff. What gets done gets done; what doesn't, wasn't supposed to happen. Wishing them all the best!

Love the color choices. I'm a little surprised she has a 'whatever' attitude, but maybe it's her age? I was the same way to an extent, but I actually planned most of my wedding in a HS class. Our assignment was to plan our wedding. We were 19 when we got married.

I'm not a hat girl, but if you think you can pull it off go for it!

I always do that too - regardless of the subject. I just like to keep my page "clean" and get rid of all the orange notifications along the lefthand side. Helps me keep track of what I've read & what I haven't

Shoot - I missed the pictures - I wish I had seen them.

Congrats on the upcoming wedding!! The colors sound great and I'm sure your dress is beautiful too. Someimes I think it's harder for the mother of the bride to find a dress - more than the bride!

I was honestly thinking about you the other day and some of the posters that moved onto a separate board - do you all still stay in touch? There were a few people that I went to a crop with in CT like YankeeScrapper and DonnaLiz and Gina (I think - she got a ticket because her windows were tinted too dark!). I hope they are all doing well.

Best wishes for a beautiful day next weekend. Post a picture or two!
