She Said Yes!


Susan said "Yes!"

Actually, I suppose "Say Yes to the Dress" has that phrase trademarked. So to fit in with the boutique's hashtag, I should say that Susan will be a #truebride.

Jill and I joined Susan and her mom to shop for a wedding gown on Sunday. It's been a dozen years since we went through that process with Jill. It was so much fun to see all the beautiful gowns and our beautiful daughter-in-law-to-be try them on.

Best of all, she found her dress. Jill and I gave Susan a hanger to use for photos on their wedding day. (I wish I'd taken a photo of Susan with the hanger, but I missed the photo op!) As I joked, Jill and I may be among the only people in the world who can actually spell Fritzemeier correctly. Susan is giving up a four-letter last name for our 11-letter one. I can relate: I went from five to 11 letters 40 years ago.

Photos of the dress will have to wait until May 28, 2022. 

I'm hoping my mother-of-the-groom dress shopping is just as painless. I'm kind of guessing it won't be. 

After our successful shopping trip - complete with glasses of champagne furnished by True Society - we had lunch at Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant in The Plaza, courtesy of Susan's mom, Becky. 

It was a bridal-themed weekend. Before we went to Kansas City for the Sunday shopping trip, I hosted a wedding shower at church. I'll have more cookie recipes to share. (I've already shared a couple on the blog, including Cherry Limeade Cookies and Red Velvet Kisses.

I also told Susan and Brent I'd take orders for wedding welcome basket baking.


  1. What a special day for you all. I've not heard of, or seen a wedding coathanger before. Beautiful.

    1. We had a wonderful time. We are so excited to welcome Susan officially to our family.
