Cover Story: Peggy Sue and My Book Cover, II.

Nervous that she'd know think I'm unwell, I spewed my cover concept to the main photographer, "I'll be wearing my elegant wedding dress, but with one obvious chocolate smudge. My book is called Woman on the Verge of Paradise. So, it's like everything's perfect, almost."

"I got it," Michelle said, and I went to change into my dress.

I'd picked up a four-pack of Dollar Store pudding the evening before (and ate two of them. Not bad at all, for a quarter each!), and a chocolate-chip mocha whatever latte tall or espresso grande short frapacinorother medium with whipped cream and a long wait but my name spelled correctly for only $6, a few doors down. Plus a pack of diamond candy rings for fun, and because I never had one before. 

The fun began, with Michelle's encouragement. Gulp. I smudged my dress the first time. [The hardest part was not eating the chocolate.]

It got easier, as I added to the smudge, then added more smudges...Then went outside and I grabbed my drink for more photos...

But the fun didn't really begin until we crossed a busy street - me in my chocolate wedding dress, accompanied now by two photographers and the influence of Bryan and Brandon's (and blogland's) beloved Peggy Sue...please return for part III.

  4. A beautiful bride who was ditched caused she snitched all the chocolate from the waiting reception and showed up with the evidence on the dress...

    this might make a good story!

  8. Big, big smiles.
    Some of the best things (many of the best things) are chocolate. I am pretty certain that you are wearing the rock on the wrong finger though...

    1. Some people say left hand, and some say right hand fourth finger. I never remember, so they told me to wear it on the left hand. Or maybe they told me right, but the photos came out flipped. I don't know. I figure it's fine either way. They could supposedly be my pre-or post-wedding shots. =) Thank you, EC.

    1. I know, GB. Talk about busting out! I'm about to bust out of the dress, but only in the photos when I'm sitting down. =)

  11. It's a shame to get all that chocolate on your new clothes. Dab some behind your ears just for effect. Covering yourself in chocolate does give you that dessert look I am so fond of.

  12. Chocolate aside, you look 20 years old.
    Well done!

  19. Very few people can make pudding stains look elegant.You rocked the hell out of them. The dress, too, I suppose.

    "This year's fashion - horizontal lines are out. Dollar store pudding is in!"

    1. Best part, BnB: the pudding tasted good!
      Peggy Sue is getting agitated. She wants the spotlight, and I can't wait to share it with her on Sunday/Monday. =)
      Thank you again and again...

  21. Well it's safe to say the dress is ruined. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  22. Very creative way to do it. And by your own hands too!

  23. Onlookers must have thought you were ditched at the alter, so now you are trying to get sucked into a chocolate induced coma. What a riot!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You look fantastic! That's a fun idea for the photo shoot. Oy to the dress!! :)

  25. Not only the dress and chocolate but that ring! Is that Tiffany's?? I say dump the dress and dive into the chocolate

    1. No, but Tiffany Tucker is the cashier who sold it to me at the Dollar Store, Birgit. Or she could've been. And just watch, I kinda took your advice before I read it.

  28. I like the way you both fill out and defile that dress all at the same time. What is wrong with me.
