Oh no! I can’t fit into my dress!!

OMG, OMG, OMG… I am SO MAD at myself right now! It’s been 6 weeks since major surgery and I am still not allowed to do anything. Seriously, nothing. At least until my physician gives me the green light. And with 6 weeks of minimal movement & the food that accompanies, I’ve gained at a…

Say Farewell to Traditional Wedding Cake Toppers and Hello to Some Fun!
