Ok, enough about my awesome super saving skills and my fabulous dress.
I took my fabulous dress with me to the Scot's graduation. I somehow managed to get into the car only 15 minutes late and as I sat down, the strap on my dress broke. (Don't worry, they're the removable kind of straps.) I had to make a last minute decision of ripping off the other strap or reattaching the broken one. I managed to tie my dress back up. Once we get ourselves into the graduation venue, the Scot texts me that he's lost his tassel. I sweet talked an usher into getting him a new one. And when I say "sweet talked" I mean they had an entire box of extra tassels. So, after a morning of wardrobe malfunctions, I was ready to do this graduation thing. I had some snacks, a juice box and my Kindle. I was totally ready for a 3 hour graduation jamboree. Ok, I know some of you are thinking I was super rude by not paying attention to the celebration of life achievement, but you can not tell me that you would pay attention to what was essentially two and half hours of someone reading a list of names. Oh, AND it was at the Izod Center in the Meadowlands, so it's not like I could see anything. I paid attention when the Scot's name was called....and then I went back to sipping on my juice box and reading my stories.
