Re: Dup dress help

You're making me wistful to go back in time and try on wedding gowns!!! Le sigh! So pretty... What about having a custom-made dress done? A quick google search brought up this company... This dress looks like the colorway you described, and there are several that are similar shape, would just need f...

Re: What to do about bitter sister

I don't have any advice, but I wanted to say that I'm sorry you're going through this. It really sounds like a difficult situation, and as someone who has had their own family drama in the past, I know it's not as easy as just writing that person off and living separate lives. I hope you are able to...

Re: Not sure why but my e-ring now makes me nauseated

I agree with everyone else's suggestion to put it away for a while. It sounds like you have given yourself a bit of aversion-therapy because you got the migraine around the same time you were looking at your ring. Give yourself some time and allow that feeling to pass--kind of like when you make you...

Oh, that was so sweet of you to say, LLJsmom , thank you. I too feel badly for tuffy's MIL.

Re: This Is What ONE Serving Of Pasta Looks Like

For anyone looking for a healthy alternative, like ChemGirl said, zucchini noodles are a good low-carb option. I really like Shirataki noodles too. They are better for stir-fry in my opinion, but if you put enough sauce on them they're decent as a pasta substitute--and only 45 calories and 6g carbs ...

Re: Woman accidentally leaves $35k worth of jewelry in cab

Around here, potential tenants need to show a prior year's tax return. It's brutal. Yeah, not much better here on the West Coast… the bottom photo is sadly close to what you get for $3k/mo in a good neighborhood. And good neighborhoods definitely have houses like that.

Re: Woman accidentally leaves $35k worth of jewelry in cab

She's only been couch surfing for a few weeks, probably since the beginning of the month. Seems like she's without an apartment due to the break-up of her marriage -- and she has been a self-employed artist who has not made it big, so unlikely to have ready reserves of cash. Plus, without a good re...

Re: Sister-in-law's Destination Wedding: How Much Is Too Muc

I just wanted to clarify ... I think it's very nice of the FILs to offer $20K for the wedding, considering that it is traditional for the bride's parents to pay. The problem is that they added the condition of doing it on the European cruise, and it's possible that they don't even see this as a fla...

Well, if nothing else SIL will be well-warned that some of her family will not turn up for the cruise, so she cannot have hurt feelings.

Re: Sister-in-law's Destination Wedding: How Much Is Too Muc
