Words, Weddings, + Weekend Update

Monday, August 13, 2012

Let me warn you this is a wordy post with little photo action...  
HOWEVER, I just had to let it be known that I'm 99.9% sure that

I have found my wedding dress.

Did I order it yet?  Nope...
But am I absolutely in love with it?  YES!
And did I have the best day shopping with the loveliest ladies in my life?  No doubt about it :)
Here's some proof:

My mom, future MIL, and 2 sisters met up with me to spend the day bridal boutique-ing on Saturday.  We went to salon #1 and I found 3 dresses that I liked, but didn't "love" any one of them alone...  I liked this about this one and that about that one (sorry for vagueness, but Nick may or may not read this blog and I don't want to take any chances!), and was sure I'd convince myself that I loved one of them later if need be.  Needless to say, I didn't have my moment.

But thennnnnn we went to salon #2 and the first dress I tried on was exactly what I had imagined my dress would be.  It had this and that from the first few all in one gown and I was beaming from ear to ear :)  I took it off to try on others and just couldn't wait to get back into "mine."  I think that's what they call "finding the one," and I can only hope that all things in life were so easy haha!

Whilst finding the dress:
We also found my bridesmaid dresses.
And my mom found a MOB dress potential (haha, MOB).
And found little flower girl dresses I liked.

I didn't order anything yet (and more importantly my dress) because of my own antics.  I decided to wait to lose just a teeny bit more weight to order a size I'm more comfortable starting at / altering so we can get this show on the road!  Then I can get onto the fun parts - accessorizing with jewelry + shoe shopping :)

All + all it was a great weekend with my two favorite families.  I love the ever-living-daylights out of each of them and am such a grateful girl.

More fun + excitement to come later, I promise...
And will there be less wordy/non-photo posts you ask?  Deal.  
But for now, this is calling my name:

Let it be known for the record that I am not a lush and in fact wrote this last night at 9ish...  Promise.  It's more likely that at the present moment coffee is calling my name.  

psssst: do we not just LOVE my girl Sami's new blog design 
+ the girls' weekend update button?  Adorable.
