Saturday was a big day for me. I can't believe I didn't run to the computer right away and write down my excitement.
I got my wedding dress.
It's beautiful. I'm happy that I loved it as much as I did when I first tried it on. I was having all these nightmares that I wasn't going to like it. Four months ago is when I bought my dress. I kept thinking that maybe I would feel differently. What if it didn't turn out the way I imagined it to be? What if the "white" that I got was too white? What if the neckline wasn't right? All these things swirled around in my head. But when she unzipped the dress bag, I got my first glimpse of it. It. was. gorgeous. When I put the dress on I felt like a princess. I purposely continued to ask the lady a bunch of questions so I could keep my dress on longer.
I was able to take it home that day. It's hard knowing that it's in my guest bedroom closet - I just want to put it on and wear it around the house; wash dishes in it; clean; lay; ANYTHING! I just want to wear it! I have a feeling I'll be bringing it to my parents house soon...I'm not sure how long I'll last.
It's February; where has the time gone? We're nearly 7 months away from our wedding. Things are coming along so smoothly too. I haven't been stressed at all. And since the wedding is expensive, I've been finding other ways to save us money. Needless to say, Michaels and the Dollar Tree are my new best friends. They're saving me boatloads of money. I found my favor boxes to hold the candy at the Dollar Tree. They come 10 to a package. I spent all of $26 on all of them for our guests! I was very proud of myself. And don't even get me started on the fabulous coupons that come in the mail every week for Michaels. I've got all my friends and family giving them to me, so I go every day and buy something for 40%...score!
We're heading up to Tahoe this weekend with a bunch of friends. We're staying in a six bedroom condo for the Super Bowl, so it should be a lot of fun! We went to Costco last night and loaded up on $500 worth of food and alcohol. Good times. Have a safe weekend...GO GREEN BAY!
