    Melody , So will you just get to lay around on Thanksgiving ? Margaret , I saw that first dress last night while looking and that is a perfect wedding dress ,

    Laurie , Check out Adrianna Papell dresses .You can check out her website first . Her lace dresses are gorgeous.
  3. I bought one for my daughter and she loves it . If I lived up North I would get one . Florida cooking is all about grilling .

    Laurie , I now see that some of the dresses are lace or blingy so I retract my statement except for the halter dress . Pretty dress but too casual for a wedding . You are the Mother of the bride so you should be a step more formal than the guests . That sparkly dress is nice but the cut in shoulders makes it more casual . Think formal night on a cruise in a short dress . I have been to tons of weddings and usually the Mother of the Bride wears a long dress but since this wedding is country club casual a short dress is fine . Try Dillard's ! The bridemaid's dresses are adorable .Good choice !

    Laurie, The dresses you are picking look more like a dinner dress than a wedding dress .I would look at something more in the lace variety and ramp it up a little .Do you know what the groom's mother is wearing ? You are supposed to be dressed similarly . For the wedding we attended in March it was a casual wedding similar to your daughter's and all the Mother's wore pants outfits .Two of us were in Blue lace and her Mother was in silk . It looked great since we were dressed similar but with slight differences .

    We do have cold snaps usually in January and occasionally one around Christmas . Visitors expect it to always be warm in Florida so they are not expecting it and usually did not pack for it . When we have a cold spell I wear jeans , long sleeve t shirt and a light sweater occasionally a light jacket . We never need wool or heavy jackets and when I see people in boots I just laugh. It will not be cooler than what Anita experienced in Atlanta .

    When looking in Orlando try to find something that does not relay on RT.4 . That is considered the worst highway in the US.

    Margaret , You win the packing light contest for sure . My first husband taught me to cook . He owned a German restaurant so He was a great cook . I am an okay cook .My Mom was a great baker so she taught me baking but I rarely do it anymore because I really do not like cake .That sounds unamerican but it is true .

    How light can you pack?

    It is not the paying airline fees that make me pack light. It is dragging the luggage around post cruise when you add on a land stay especially if trains or small airlines are involved.

    How light can you pack?

    I could easily do the trip with a slightly larger bag .

    If you were expecting anything more you have done no research on Cuba. These are the only cars they have had for years and with their ingenuity they kept them running .I was amazed at how good they looked .

    Melody , I am so glad Les is okay . That would really scare me . Laura, Your daughter's dress sounds perfect . My daughter and I went shopping for her dress and when they put the veil on her I cried , It was such an emotional moment .Gary does not want to downsize and is resisting it but I am moving ahead . We really need to get this done before we get too old to do it .
