It is that time again!! Prom dress shopping!! Always fun and an excellent time spent with family! This time it is for my youngest granddaughter, Georgia Rose (Jo).
She wasn't sure what she wanted so off we went to David's Bridal. Their selection wasn't a little lean this year. Sigh! So we traveled to the Mall which is just down the road from David's. First order of business, LUNCH! Yummmmmmm...shrimp teriyaki! Then J. C. Penney...oh dear. Most dresses where for size 2, 3 and 4! You have got to be kidding!! So...off we went again. This time we found a place called Expressions! So many gowns.....prom heaven. She found many that were her size and many that she liked! Good!
The owners of the store were friendly and helpful and did a lot of the hand work, such as beading and such! Anywho, she tried on several and finally found her dress!! So beautiful! And not beaded at all! Surprise! Here are some pictures...

Thursday, saw the Oral Surgeon. Biopsy news! And the report is in...I have Lichen Planus which is loosely related to a form of Lupus. Great! It is an auto immune disease...and treatment recommended by Dr. Traub is to try steriods! Great again! So a low dose steriod will begin and slowly increase until pain stops. Sigh! Doesn't sound promising does it. So the search goes on in a way!
Saturday, Dr. John and I received a treat from Cheri....well actually we had received this wonderful gift for Christmas. An one hour massage each!!! Ahhhhhh! So off we went to meet with Gina of WindSpirit Massage...and what a wonderful time. Gina is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Magic hands for sure. So magic that we were worthless for the rest of the day! Ha! We came home and slept until 7PM. Then we went to bed at 9PM and slept until 8AM!!! OMGeeeee! Did we need that or what??? Ha!! Thank you Cheri and thank you Gina!!
On the 24th of this month, we are going to Las Cruces...John to attend a conference and give a talk at UNM...me to look around at houses and such! I am excited!! Alice is staying at my house to keep an eye on it! Thanks Alice!
Then I no longer get back from Cruces and the 28th I hop on a plane...Southwest...and fly out to Columbus, Ohio! My mom in having surgery on the 29th and I am going to lend a helping hand. She lives in Lancaster, Ohio which is south of Columbus. My sweet sister-in-law, Patti and brother Mark will be picking me up from the airport!! And taking me to Lancaster...thank you guys!!
Mom is having her entire shoulder replaced! OUCH! She insisted that she could handle this on her own! Ha! That's my mom...85 years young and fiercely independent! She looks like she is 55!!

Gorgeous isn't she?
Well that is it for me.....make sure and stop by Stacy's at Stacy Uncorked and see what Randomness is occurring there! Always entertaining!
I would like to close with prayers and good, positive thoughts for all those that were touched by the unconscionable violence in Boston!!!!! I am unable to find the words that adequately state my shock and horror about this!! Lord, please send healing and comfort to all those in need!
Have a blessed and safe day!
