The Branson Belle

Tomorrow is our church's "Hanging of the Greens" service and we are doing most of our Christmas music. We had a three hour dress rehearsal this afternoon. Pictured above is what we are wearing. I feel like I'm about to go on stage at a 1986 Branson show. All I'm missing is the big bangs. Or like I should be starring on "Dynasty". The shoulder pads make me look like I could play offensive line for the Cowboys.
Some friends and I are going on the Junior League tour of homes right after church and I'm trying to decide how many funny looks I would get if I toured the homes in this get up.

I'm thinking I'll change clothes.

But how stining funny would it be if you didn't? Oh my word... you would get a lot of attention, for sure!

Have fun on the tour- sounds fun!

stinking funny, I meant- oops!

I think it looks like you should have a cello or violin in your arms! Sweet! Mom

This is too funny! You'd fit right in at the Shoji Tabochi (sp???) show in Branson! :)

I seriously think all music ministers must take a class during seminary on how to pick out embarrassing choir clothing...followed by how to teach you choir to sway & lift your hands while singing!!! In middle school my choir director made my sister & I try on all of the choir outfits (a.k.a. jumpers with colored t-shirts) in front of everyone so we could pick out which one we all liked best...probably one of my lowest points in life!! (ha!)

Oh my... he, he, he... You are a good sport! : )

Boy & Girl said...

oh bless your heart. I was unaware that they still made shoulder pad.

Sandra said...

I kind of wish you would wear that to the Junior League tour of homes. It would create so much blog material.

Sarah said...

But you're still so purdy! :)

Do you feel like you know me like I know you? I think we share the same type of humor. (Our poor husbands!)

Sarah said...

That comment should read "do you feel like you know me, like I feel like I know you?" Even that sounds confusing...I have GOT to learn to proofread better!

Fran said...

Well...yes, I must agree, 1987 is the outfit and I agree with the comment on choir directors needing to learn to pick the best Christmas attire. And, you really should have worn that to the tour of homes. Oh my! We could be having some serious fun with blogging material over that. But, I don't blame you one bit!!

Hugs~

Okay...the dress is cracking me up! I think that came straight out of my mom's closet!!! I am calling you up the next time I need some shoulder pads!
