Don't Steal My Moment!

This weekend I went to the Women of Faith conference in Little Rock with 5 ladies from our church. We had a really good time. Nicole C Mullin was UNREAL. I tell you that girl has some lungs and some arms! Wow, I wish I had those arms. Anyway she was fabulous, fabulous! Go see her, buy her CD, listen to her on the radio. She is the bomb!

Anyway, I am on here to tell you this story.
Before we all met for dinner on Friday night, two of the ladies and I went to a little boutique to look for jewelery. One of the ladies was buying earrings to go with her daughters prom dress. She had a picture of the dress that she had downloaded from her computer with her. It is a strapless, short black sequined dress with a pink sash. Beautiful! So we all walked around the store looking for earrings, and found nothing. So we walk up to the counter and my friend says, " I'm looking for earrings to go with my daughter's prom dress, this is the dress," and then shows the saleslady the picture of the dress. The saleslady then looks at me and says with a big smile on her face and excitement in her voice "for YOU!".
Oh my goodness!!! This could be the highlight of my adult life. My friend looked at me with a look of disgust, and my other friend was doing everything in her power to stay upright and quiet. She was holding back her laughter as best she could. I looked at her and with clenched teeth said "DON'T STEAL MY MOMENT!"
It was so funny! When we got out of the store we busted out. Can I just remind you people that I went to my senior prom 20 years ago. And I would never have looked good in that dress, but my friends daughter looked beautiful.

The other day I wished you a good day and a pair of red shoes. Today I wish you a great compliment!
