Fashion Show

Last night, my fellow raquetball compatriots bailed on me, so no raquetball. Instead, I ran a 3 miler. And this morning, I again ran a 3 miler, but this time with Norah in the Bob. It was about a million degrees out for both runs, so I was a river of sweat, but otherwise, both runs were fine.

Today, then, Norah's "school" hosted a Mother's Day Fashion Show. Each class had a different theme; Norah's class was swimwear, so here she is pre-show (chewing on a sand shovel). This is totally the face of a future runway model, right? (See that kid next to her with the pacifier in? Norah likes to terrorize this little guy by stealing his pacifier. I guess she already has the super model bullying down.)
The show was cute, but we didn't get any good pics or video during the show; however, here she is with me post-show waving "hi!"
So, that was super cute. And, speaking of fashion shows...today, I picked up my bridesmaid dress for my brother's wedding later this summer: Here I am, yo.
A little closer: Lovely tan lines, eh?
Two feel good things about this dress: One, it's 1 size smaller than the bridesmaid dress I wore 2 years ago for a friend's wedding, and it's 2 sizes smaller than my wedding dress (4 and 1/2 years ago)! And two, when I picked it up today, the seamstress asked me if it was my prom dress! So, apparently, I am now slimmer and I look about 16 years younger! Score.

The dress looks great! I love the colour and style. And SCORE the on prom compliment!

Adam said...

So, I had to laugh - when I first saw your dress pictures I could have SWORE you had your hands in pockets (because of the bow). I thought to myself "what the crap kind of dress is that!?" Nice work on the prom compliment....I think?

Mmmmm, yummy shovel!

Cute school program. Norah is adorable. Love the dress!

ajh said...

Great things about the dress sizes and the age question!!

Jamie said...

You have such a cute daughter! And you look WAY young with that dress on. The color may have something to do with it. Pink is pretty girly. :)

Norah is so cute!! Awesome picture of the two of you. Cute dress, I really like the color.

Erin said...

Mother's Day was fun and Norah worked the crowd.

I love the dress. You look great and it's a very good style for you. Now, about those tan lines...

Aka Alice said...

LOL at Prom dress...that's priceless!

Agate Lake Girl said...

Norah looks adorable in her swimsuit. If only there was a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition for Babies, she could start earning her keep.

You look fab as well! I like the dress and the color (not something one can say about most bridesmaid dresses!)

N.D. said...

the pics of norah are adorable!!! love the swim suits. You can definitely pass for a prom highschooler. So cute - love the dress.

MCM Mama said...

Norah is adorable! And you're looking pretty good yourself! I don't even get carded anymore, much less asked if I'm going to prom LOL.

Stuart said...

Starting to terrorize! To funny!

Great dress and cute pic with the kiddo!

Andy said...

Boo Bail out from Racquetball friends. Norah is adorable in the fashion show. Go you for the bridesmaid dress! Have a great weekend!

Krissy said...

Oh, what a great bridesmaid dress! I really like it! I am in a wedding in September which I also love the dress, only thing is I didn't get to order a small size like you! That is awesome!

And your little super model Norah over there is too cute waiving to the camera!

lifestudent said...

You know, I can see the "prom" in that dress. And you do look quite young (not only in general, but in that dress). I'm thinking you need to crash yourself a local prom and whoop it up for a night. Now that would be something to blog about.

And just imagine...you can walk your way right into popularity. Just whisper those magic words ... "I can buy beer"

Viper said...

When I first saw the dress, I thought maybe you were going to one of those adult proms. Congrats on reverse aging.

Jess said...

I really like the bright bold color of that dress! Like Adam I totally thought the dress had pockets!

Katie A. said...

Lovin' the Nora fashion show!!
That dress is smokin'! And the color is fun! Running also made me quite a few sizes smaller than my wedding dress! (I wore a size 16 on my wedding day - today, size 2/4!)

Heather said...

You look great! And Norah is definitely a future cover girl.

Crystal said...

Cute dress! Kind of reminds me of my bridesmaid dress for this fall. I hope my dress statistics turn out as well as yours did!

d.a.r. said...
