    Dear friends,

    You can find photos of the dress I will be wearing at my engagement party here (the password is mdafriends). I think I like the one-shoulder wrap best, but there are a lot of options! Thanks to Naiadknight, who got this for me I am eternally grateful! I will be wearing a bathing suit under it at the party, but will want to get some of those nipple covers for future wearing, as it's a bit too revealing of the nipple shape to go without something.

    The first two photos are how I wore it out today. With my shoulders covered, I see it more as a "guest at a wedding" dress for some reason. It's quite comfy. I think I'm going to trim the hem off the ends of the "straps" because it's not going to fray and it looks odd to me (plus it adds bulk if I tuck the straps in after wrapping).

    Pardon my camera-conscious expression. It was just me and the tripod Click the photo below for a larger version! Oh and it's quite a bit more vibrant in person, not sure the photos really capture it.

    Beautiful!

    I love the one shoulder wrap... it shows off your other shoulder/ink wonderfully!

    I'm glad it looks as good on you as I had hoped. I prefer either the one shoulder or the strapless, and I'm honestly torn on which way. I guess it depends on your swimsuit as to which you roll with. The color is absolutely gorgeous on you.

    Great picture. 10/10 would expect to see sculpted in marble adorning a Greek temple.

    I tried the strapless without a bra and...well I was very nervous. Large breasticles would help a lot, but I do not have those. I think it would slip off very easily with a bathing suit top underneath (they are usually pretty smooth/kind of slippy).

    I prefer to have the waist of the dress at my waist instead of below boobs, as shown here, for length (on the knees) and comfort, but some of the wrap styles work better with the waistband higher. The wrapping occurs around my waist either way. Perhaps I will do some comparison photos. I was just thinking about what styles would hide the strapless bra for today, so I had the waistband higher.

    I have the Sunday afternoon/evening grumps. I'm not dreading work, but there's a definite sense of gloom about my weekend being almost over. It's hard to just enjoy the time I have with this feeling of unease. My PMS is not nearly as awful since I added the Vitex back in 2 days ago, but I'm still a little gloomy/stressed.

    I think I'm going to go out and get a gluten-free pizza mix.

    She chose it. All I needed was the size.

    Very pretty! I had no idea you could wear it so many different ways! The big day is closing in! How exciting!

    I don't listen to the radio that often, but when I get tired of the mix cd in the car, I'll pop it on. I made a rule for myself that if a song I don't recognize is playing on one of our preset stations, I have to listen to it. I've found some good new music that way. Unfortunately, I also hear awful snippets of talk radio while I'm waiting for the sound to process in my ears. I need 5-10 seconds to understand what I'm hearing on the radio when I'm in the car, mostly from separating road noise (the car is not really loud, it's just an auditory fault of mine). By the time the sounds process, I am bummed about having wasted that time. This morning, I heard some bullshit about "sluts" on "Boston's rock station". It's sickening to me that this kind of shaming is acceptable to some people. They were talking about how it's slutty for a woman to hook up with a guy and then hook up with someone else the next day, not sleeping with someone on the first date. So, "slut" is defined by the person who isn't getting any. That sense of "ownership" is disgusting.

    AAANNYYWAAAAY. Rant over. Sorry.

    I slept poorly last night. Hulky and I spent most of yesterday playing video games and I think it was too much engaging time on the computer. During the week, I don't really feel very engaged when I'm at my desk, no matter what I'm doing. I think it helps that I have a lot of sunlight in my line of view at work (my back is to the north-facing windows in the apartment when I'm at my desk). It's not the same kind of stimulation as gliding around Gotham (playing Arkham City, the end of the main quest line made me sad) all "night" (it's seriously never day in that game). I woke up several times in the night, feeling perfectly awake, and annoyed to be so. Did not help to have the cat sitting on my gassy belly. I drove Hulky in to work today and will do so again tomorrow because of the threat of thunderstorms. I have therapy tomorrow at 5PM.

    Did I mention I made banana bread this weekend? It's not as dense as shown in Slim Palate's photos. Mine breaks apart easily, but it's very moist and has a great texture. It's really proper banana bread to my palate. I'm out of all my gluten-free flours now, sadly. Hulky ruined a batch of pancakes on Saturday with an experiment (making a giant pancake, but it was too thick), so the mix I bought two weeks ago is almost gone too.

    Last night was pizza night. Hulky made from scratch (dough was bought at local pizza place), I got a Bob's Red Mill crust mix. It's a bit upsetting to my digestion, D instead of C, but it's honestly worth the trouble. It comes out too thick for my liking, so I throw out the "crust" when I get to it, but I like being able to indulge in a pizza without the heartburn. Any tips for working with fresh mozzarella? Last time I used it, a lot of water came out during baking so it was a bit rubbery. The shredded stuff is always this dehydrated reconstituted crap with lots of additives. Wondering if there's a "healthier" option.

    I asked Hulky what "junk" means to him and he got snippy and said that he didn't think it needed defining. So I'm completely dropping that discussion (about not eating junk for the month leading up to the wedding) with him. Not worth the argument. He can do whatever he wants. Not eating out will save us some needed money, at least!

    My birthday is in 8 days! I think we're doing something this weekend. I got some more palm shortening for Hulky to use if he makes me a gluten-free cake. I think I requested chocolate, but now I can't remember.
