Get your mind out of the wedded bliss gutter! No, I'm not announcing my engagement online....but I do have a bit of a wedding announcement.
I was talking with my mom the other day on the phone and our convo went a little something like this:
Mom: "Did you hear what they're going to start selling at Costco?"
(NOTE: My mom and I are both huge nerds when it comes to Costco. Going to the warehouse is an exciting event for us, and I have fond memories of going there as a kid and eating my Costco hotdog piled high with onions from the little cranking machine it popped out of. MMmmmm. If only they were gluten-free!)
Me: "No, what?"
Mom: "Wedding dresses!"
Me: "Who would EVER buy their wedding dress from Costco? I mean, yeah, it's pretty much the best store ever, but the last place I'd buy my wedding dress from would be Costco. What, are you supposed to buy a pack of five dresses, one for each of your future weddings? That doesn't seem like it would be a good omen for your marriage."
Mom: "They showed pictures of them on the news the other day and they were actually kind of pretty."

Mom: "Well, you won't have to worry about buying your dress at Costco, because I'm still making your wedding dress, right?"
Me: "Yes, Mom. When I get engaged and am planning my wedding—not that it's in the near future—you will be making my wedding dress."
Mom: "You know, the women in our family hit menopause early. Your eggs might already be drying up."
Me: "Sure. Thanks, Mom. Good to know."
(NOTE: Okay, so the menopause/eggs comment was a whole other conversation, but you can see how some of our talks go. Love you, Mom!)
Anyway, how do you feel about the news that Costco might start selling wedding dresses? Would you ever buy your own wedding dress at a store like this?
