first choice

Out of 130 proofs this is their fav.  I agree, it's a keeper. :)

Today was suppose to be a terrible, no fun, unproductive day.  I had blocked out the entire day, after running of course, for dress shopping...for me.  I like to shop, but I also knew it would be a challenge to find something for the wedding.  I've spent many hours, since Sunday, online looking and looking and getting more and more discouraged.  I've looked at JcPenney, Sears, Macy's, Dillards, Nordstrom, Jones New York, and even ramdom sites that I found on Google. I gave in and went to David's Bridal.  I don't want matronly, or traditional.  I want to cordinate with the colors, and still look good.  I was feeling like that was too much to ask. 

Then I was on the last page of David's Bridal.  It was literally the last dress and I thought, "That's really cute."  I asked the two girls what they thought.  Then I asked Brian.  So far it was all good.  Yesterday morning I called the local store and the only stores that have that dress in my size are Houston, El Paso, and Mcallen.  Dang it!!  I decided to call Houston and make sure they really had it.  They did!  Online the price was already 50% off.  When I talked with the sales rep I found out it's another 50% off.  (I love sales!)  The price was so reasonable that I comtemplating ordering it without trying it on.  Non refundable mind you!  Long story short...really this is the short version.  I ordered the dress and it should be here in a week.  Hooray!!!

So, the Temple is reserved. The invitations are ordered, the wedding dress is ordered, the bridesmaids dresses are being made (We had a "fitting" for the girls yesterday.  The dresses are going to be great!  We can't wait.) with matching ties. The silk flowers have been purchased, hopefully we can start making those next week. Still working on where to have the family dinner after the wedding.  Then there's the open house.  That's my next focus. 

When I went to order the invitations it wouldn't take a horizontal picture.  So Kinz and Geoff quickly chose another and our amazing photographer, Three Hills Photography, doctored this up and sent it to me ASAP. 

It's turning out to be a great day!!

Hurray! You found a dress! You'd be beautiful in a paper bag, though I know you want something much nicer than that. Still, it's true! I love the pictures. SOOO glad your day turned out great.
