Leaving Tomorrow! :D

Hello everyone!  Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments and congratulations!  Robby and I are settling into married life very nicely, although it still feels like a dream I'm going to wake up from sometimes. ;)  Being married to him is quite lovely, though.   

It'll be a quick post tonight.  Robby and I have been very busy getting ready for our trip to the coast.  We leave sometime tomorrow with Beast'sbelle and her family.  It was supposed to be first thing in the morning, but Beast'sbelle hasn't been feeling well for a good part of the afternoon, so she's been resting instead of packing.  I think she'll be all right before tomorrow....she seems to be improving.  It got really hot today (84 degrees inside), so that could be part of her problem! :{

Earlier this week, Robby and I talked with Beast'sbelle about the fact that we didn't really have beach clothes.  Robby especially...the poor guy only has one outfit!  I have several, as all of you know, but nothing that's going to be very comfortable for strolling on the beach.  It will most likely be too cold to swim, so we shouldn't need swimming suits, but more casual clothes would be nice.

Beast'sbelle agreed, and the following day, we took a trip to some local stores to try to find some vacation clothes.  Unfortunately, we struck out wherever we went.  Beast'sbelle figured we could just go to the Barbie section and pick something out, but she was sadly mistaken.  For those of you who don't know, the Ken dolls have been redesigned within the last year and are now much skinnier...meaning that Robby is too big to fit into any of the current clothes being offered. :(  

My problem wasn't fitting into things, but finding anything that was even halfway modest!!  Seriously, has anyone thought that there might be some fashion dolls out there who want to wear something that goes past their thighs?!  And I won't even go into all of the plunging necklines, see-through material, or just plain tacky stuff with the word BARBIE plastered all over it.  Really?  Does anyone go around with their name covering the material of their clothing?  That's just silly!

Anyway, long story short, we returned home empty handed.  But Beast'sbelle didn't give up.  She remembered that she had some extra Ken clothes from an obliging "Shave 'n Style" Ken from the 90s (with a body type closer to Robby's), so Robby now has an extra outfit for the beach.

Then, she set to work and made me a dress using THIS TUTORIAL from My Froggy Stuff.

Robby seemed pleased with the results. :)

I think it will be great for the coast.  The material is very stretchy and comfortable, but the dress itself is much more modest than anything we would have found at the store.  

I also found the perfect accessory to go with it:  my choker (made from one of Beast'sbelle's old toe rings).  Now I feel all ready to go! ;)  

I don't think I'll be able to do any blogging while I'm over there, but I'll take some pics to share with you when I get back! :)  I'm so excited!!  This will be the farthest I've ever traveled before (aside from my journey in the UPS box when Beast'sbelle ordered me, but I don't think that's quite the same thing). ;)

I'll talk to all of you when I get back sometime next week! :D
