Congratulations Lucy and Brad.

It was my sister's engagement party yesterday and on Friday I was still wondering what to wear. I didn't have much in my wardrobe so I hit the shops in the faint hope of finding something. And I did find something - two new pairs of running shorts. Oops!! How typical!

I came home and posted this on Facebook -

"I really did intend to shop for a dress for Lucy and Brad's engagement party - so how come I ended up coming home with two pairs of running shorts?!"

And I got this in reply from Lucy -

"ha ha... cause they are easier to buy! Just wear them... I didn't mention dress code :)"

But I think that made her worried that I might just actually turn up in running shorts so that afternoon I got a text from her. She and my other sister were in Target and had picked out some dresses for me and I was to stop work immediately and come try them on.

So I did. And I bought an appropriate dress. And they didn't have to be embarrassed by their sister who values function over style.

  1. What a nice couple.
    Now I see you did find something beside your running shorts to wear and it is cute too. I wonder if running skirts would be appropriate for such occasions. :)

  2. You look very nice! Running clothes are so much more fun to buy!

  3. Running clothes are SO much easier to buy!! You looked great though!

  4. Congrats to the couple, totally love that pic of them....and enjoyed all the others. :)

  5. You look great!
    I have to say that I have bought more running clothes than regular clothes the last 2 years, so I understand!
    Congratulations Brad and Lucy!

  6. I so understand about the running shorts :) ...Your sisters did a good job, you look great in that dress!

  7. I love these pictures, you all look so beautiful. The running shorts comment made me laugh, shorts are so much better than dresses!!

  8. What a beautiful photo of you :) I really enjoyed while I was seeing other photos! Nice post!
    I hope that you'll have a good week!

  9. I think you actually had them worried. This is such a nice post with warmth and friendliness everywhere. Have a great week!

  10. So funny--you should have gone for it! You look lovely and what a gorgeous family you have!

  11. Congrats to Lucy and Brad. I love the picture of you and your sisters! You all look great!
    BTW, thank you very much for the kind and encouraging comments on my blog! I really do appreciate it!!

  12. You look very nice and, of course, elegant. I also sometimes find forgotten running items. In fact last week I found shirt, shorts and k-way that I bought in Sweden in february 2009....lost in the wardrobe.

  13. You have a lovely family and the dress is a keeper - very cute!

  14. Yay us!!
    Thanks for sharing these photos!
    What a beautiful family you have.

    Loved the running shoes shopping event...classic Char move. ;) awesome.

    Congrats to the happy couple!!
