Didn't get the memo...

I am headed off to a Bridal shower for one of Ben's step sisters. I am excited to be getting out of the house and away from my sometimes adorable and sometimes messy and screaming children to enjoy time with ladies eating delicious food. I did my hair, make-up and changed into some clean clothes and looking all cute headed out.

I got lost...of course and was glad I left with enough time to get lost but still I arrived just a few minutes late. I finally find the place. It is beautiful. The indoor decor is rich wood and divinely comfortable in every proper way.

I find the bridal shower and horror! Everyone is wearing beautiful summer dresses. I am wearing jeans! They were my nice jeans but none the less they were indeed jeans. And of course as I arrived a little late to show case my mishap. Oops did I not get the memo?

I felt like a 16 year old girl turning up in fancy dress to a party that is not fancy dress. In my moment of awkwardness I thought "I am so glad I showered and did my hair."

Without acknowledging that I was not dressed appropriately I beamed a huge smile and acted like I was wearing a beautiful summer dress and enjoyed all the delicious food.

I'm guessing all those wearing dresses were looking at you and thinking "She looks so cute! Why didn't I wear jeans! Wish I got her memo!". That's what I'd be thinkin' anyway!

You didn't mention that you usually turn up in a pretty dress or more formal wear for such occasions and everyone else is in Jeans or more casual attire and this time you thought I won't be the odd one out, but you were ;-)
