By "it's", I mean "she".
And by "she", I mean "me".
I have been so ridiculously MIA.
I'm sorry... really, I am.
The thing is, I have had serious bloggers block.
Between work and wedding planning, this last month has been a little nuts. By the time I finish what needs to be accomplished in a day, the only thing I have time to think about is sleep.(I think about it a lot, by the way!) Blogging just had to take a back seat for a bit, but hopefully with this post I will get on some sort of a roll and show my face around here on the regular.
Yesterday, my Mom, Sister, Step Sister, Grandma and I went wedding dress shopping. We walked in at 5:30 and by 7:30 I was walking out of the door with my dress in hand! It was the first dress I put on and though I kept trying on dresses(maybe 5 or 6 more?), nothing seemed to live up to that first dress. I actually did like just about all of them, but none were "just right" like the first dress. By the end of the appointment I found myself standing in front of the mirror back in that first dress with a veil atop my head and sparkly earrings dangling in my ears. That was it... I was DONE gown shopping! And IT. FELT. GOOD. Now on to Bridesmaid dress shopping, which will likely be more difficult than my dress shopping experience. I am only having 2 Bridesmaids- My sister and BFF, (Yes, you can totally use the term "BFF" as an adult if you have actually been best friends FOR. EV. ER.) and MR is having his best friend from childhood and best friend from college.(No Maid of Honor or Best Man- we figured it didn't REALLY make a difference with only having 2.) As for the "flower children"? Well, with a plethora of nieces and nephews to choose from, we decided not to choose and just have all 8 of them parade down the aisle before me! The more, the merrier, I say!
Here are a few of the cute pictures we received of the gifts we sent or dropped off to some of the bridal party!
|I sent my sister and bff a framed photo of the two of us, a necklace with their initial and a card. My best friend sent me this lively response via text!|
|The "older" flower girls received bridesmaid bubble bath and loofahs with notes attached. The sun was shining in my niece E's eyes, but she was super excited about being a flower girl and wanted to know where her pretty dress was ;)|
My niece Baby E received a diamond ring rattle that I found at Walmart! How perfect!
One thing is for sure... I will have one CUTE wedding party!
