It's a Steal and It Was on TV!

Okay, I will admit that I am a huge fan of Arrested Development. I own all of the DVDs, refer to each episode by its title, and force friends to watch whenever I get the chance. So, I have been following the official prop and wardrobe auctions since the beginning on ebay.

So, why am I posting about this? Well, this week there is a wedding dress for sale, one worn on screen by Charlize Theron as she played the part of Rita in the third season. And while Charlize might have worn it over her clothes, it's still a cute dress by the designer brand Melody Of CA and a steal at $103 (as of this posting). Plus, it comes with a fuzzy pink crown. How could anyone resist?

There isn't any size information available, so be prepared to invest in a good seamstress.

We're back...and oh, the mess!

We came back a few days ago to a wrecked house and (thanks to an infestation of pantry moths a few days before the wedding) no food. Our luggage and unopened gifts turned our living room into a pond of stuff, more fit for wading than walking through.

Still, it was a relief to be back and sleeping in our own bed. It was an even bigger relief to have a pile of unopened gifts waiting for us at 5:30 in the morning when jet-lag left us unable to do anything but toss and turn. One of the best so far has been a family genealogy where Mr. Lollipop's relatives thoughtfully added me to the family tree. Aww!

Our professional pictures should be ready soon as will my recaps of our honeymoon destinations, Bali and Hong Kong. Whee!

Shh! Don't tell anyone we're married!

Wow. I married Mr. Lollipop 24 hours ago, and now I am sitting in the Phoenix airport for the first of many connections before we arrive at our honeymoon destination. I feel so happy, so satisfied and so full of love. I'll be posting pictures soon and writing about our trip, but first I'll need to fulfill my backlog of pre-wedding entries. So, let's just pretend that I'm getting married in two weeks, or until I catch up. Thanks!
