My two sisters, FSD18, and I went out of town to go wedding dress shopping and it was a blast!!!

Thanks Moss. There is such a lack of shopping in our state. I'm very thankful that David's Bridal is in the one bigger city we have!!

Yes, I very much expected BM to freak out and that made it so much easier when she did. DF was frazzelled because he had to deal with her, but he's recovered already. And BM was good last night for FSD10's bday. So will we see what happens.

I'm so glad everything went well with picking out the dress, Kristie! And how cool that FSD found a prom dress too!

I'm glad to hear BM behaved well at FSD10's birthday too! Let's hope that continues down the road :)

Thanks Wendy. THis may sound a bit off, but I keep my expectations low in reguards to BM. This works for me. I don't get as stressed out and I don't anticipate what will happen typically and things smooth out faster this way.

I love FSD18's prom dress too!! It's passes the Dad approval test easily :0)

Oh, I can understand the SM & BM issues. One of the boards I frequent is the Stepmoms / Bio Moms Debate board and I've learned a lot about both sides.

I'm glad to hear the dress is approved by dad! Maybe you'll share some pics of your new dresses soon?

I will the wedding dress after the wedding. This is a public board and I'm keeping the dress a secret from DF. :0) I'll see if I can get on my laptop tonight and show you FSD18's prom dress.

I've checked out the debate board before. I'm not sure it's for me. It can get pretty ruthless over there. Our situation is not a typical SM/BM situation at all, and it's hard to share the exact details so others can get a good grasp of what we deal with. But I will think about it.
