after much thinking, and debating, and a the near death of a davids bridal consultant at my “big hipped” hand. i have decided on a wedding dress.
this decision was made after trying to find a dress that i could wear other than this ball gown i found…although beautiful…lets face it. i do not wear ball gowns. i called my sister in law (who is from Jesus, btdubs) when i so awesomely locked myself out of my house post db disaster. there…on the cobblestone ground in front of my locked door i began to cry and told her about how ever since i was younger i would say “when i get married, i want long wild hair with daisies in it, and i want to be barefoot”…then BAM it hit me…i can NOT do that in a ball gown. but the j.crew dress that i originally fell in love with is perfect for it. i love that dress. its the dress that ive been thinking about every time i put on another dreadful taffeta creation to which i reply…”meh”.
its over budget. oh well. i am going to pay for the remainder of it because…i want it. i can see me walking to brett in it…i can see me and him…hands clasped…running through our crowd of friends…sparklers lighting up the path to our future together (whoa…dramatic). so…inanutshell.
i feel GREAT!
i cant wait to buy it tomorrow. and i cant wait till its delivered to my front door! EEP!
one more thing checked off this endless list of todos!
and the evening had all the awkward tension that is our relationship. it started out beyond rocky…and actually ended up ok.
on a good note…i think i found THE dress. and it is the COMPLETE opposite of everything i wanted…ha ha.
i was going in with the idea that i only wanted flowy chiffon ethereal dresses. i ended up falling madly in love with a 50’s style mullet dress (shin length in front, long in the back) it fit like a glove and when i put it on i giggled and made lots of “eeeeeEEEE” noises.
to top it off…i stated “if this thing had pockets id be-OH MY GOD!!”
the dress has pockets people.
its perfect. it fits well with the back yard thing goin on…and i think it will look super cute next to brett in his suspenders and bow tie.
we didnt make a purchase tonight but i will probably be thinking about it until my mom gets back from hawaii and we can go back for a second look! excitement!
last night i borrowed this pilates tape from my friend. i did the whole FORTY FIVE minute work out. then called her just to say “holy crap!” it was pretty difficult, but i actually really enjoyed it. i wouldn’t call what i am today sore. my entire body just feels tight. ha ha.
it felt good to stretch. and have good posture for 45 minutes of my life. : ). i shall do it again this evening. I’m pretty sure my abs are gonna punch 9.10.11 right in the face!
nothin like a honey moon in hawaii to motivate some sort of fitness in me.
my desire to not wedding plan at all this week has been put on hold with plans to go wedding dress shopping on thursday (eek!). im going with my sister in law and my mom. hopefully it will be an enjoyable evening. my mom has been pretty intense about it just being “me and her” but i weaseled a buffer in there! karens a pretty great tension easer…i trust her abilities.
in other news. im tired. in seriously every part of my life. work. church. friendships. and yes wedding crizzap. im just exhausted. and very much looking forward to this weekend.
brett and i decided to have a day where we do NOTHING. i am very excited about this. we have no plans and we will most likely spend the day watching mindless television, reading the word, and snugglin it up. this is SO needed right now.
we might squeeze some registering in there…but only if we’re up to it (and it sounds more fun than stressful).
so if the rest of the week would just wrap it up id really appreciate it.
