I don’t know how many people know this about me, but I have a thing for party dresses. I have a lot of dresses in my closet and if you give me an excuse to wear one then I will. My absolute favorite reason to buy a dress is for my birthday.
It all started back in 2008 before JP moved to Texas. When he was here visiting for my birthday that year we stayed for a couple of nights in downtown San Antonio on the Riverwalk. On the morning of my birthday he asked me what I wanted to do that day and I told him I wanted to go buy a party dress. So go buy a dress is what we did. Luckily there is lots of shopping on the Riverwalk so the choices were endless. I modeled a bunch of dresses for him before we decided on the perfect pink party dress. I was so excited to wear it that I tore the tags off in the dressing room and wore it out of the store. The only problem was that it had a security tag on it… so I had to get on the counter in order for the girl at the register to get the tag off. Looking back that might just be my favorite birthday memory ever because we still laugh about it to this day.
Don’t we look so happy?
I went through my archives trying to find every year of party dresses and to my disbelief I have nothing in the archives for 2009. To be more exact I have nothing in my archives from 8/4/09 to 9/19/09. Something is definitely wrong here because I can remember things we did during that time… I just can’t find photo proof. I think this is a case for my computer geek extraordinaire.
So moving on to 2010 this is the party dress I wore. This was the awesome birthday that we spent on the Riverwalk again. I believe this picture was taken at the Hard Rock Cafe.
I remember the next morning we went and had an amazing couples massage. If you go back in my archives for August 2010 you can see I have posted this picture before. I think it is pure awesomeness!
That brings us to 2011.
I think last year was the first year that I bought Lily a party dress for my birthday party.
So that brings us to 2012. Today was the day that I went shopping for my birthday party dress. Lily and her friend were playing quietly upstairs when I asked them to go shopping with me. I am glad I took them with me so that they could snap pictures of the dresses I tried on. I tried on like 8 dresses and I ended up buying one.
Can you guess which one I picked?
After we were done shopping I rewarded them with a little bit of candy for a job well done.
