Really all they have to do to alter my dress is take up the shoulders. One benefit of being 5' 10" is that they never have to hem your formals. If I was the slightest bit taller they would have to order me a long. I'm super glad I can just wear satin slippers so my feet will be comfy. I also got some white flip flops for the reception.
After we got fitted, we did a little shopping, then some of the girls had to head for home. Steph & Carol were able to come back to the house for our yummy lasagna dinner. We had a great time around the table visiting & laughing. The Lord does bless us immensely when He gives us friends. I have some of the very best in the world!
In other wedding news, we worked on our massive pile of invitations last night & with minimal effort this evening, we should have them finished up & in the mail tomorrow...b/c
tomorrow marks the six week point!
I can hardly believe it. There are still tons of details to hammer out, but I've gotten some things accomplished. I have submitted my vacation request at my full-time job & I'm going to take care of the part-time gig tonight. The first shower is tomorrow. I'm excited but deep down I feel kind of funny. I didn't help plan a bit of it, I haven't prepared any of the food, & I feel guilty about people buying us stuff. Is that weird? It just feels strange not helping out & being the center of attention. And I have a raging case of poison ivy on my legs and not a single skirt that will cover it. The wardrobe dilemma is getting dire. The doctor is supposed to call me in a prescription tonight. Will the poison be gone by morning? That would be SUPERB!
We also picked up our engagement pics this week. We got a free 11x13. There is something super scary about seeing your own face that size. Anybody agree? I think Mike looks handsome & I look stupid. He thinks I look beautiful & he looks stupid. We are indeed a match made in heaven, are we not? ;-)
Am I am so super tempted to check our registries online. Isn't that awful of me? Someone else confess right quick that they did the same thing!
That's about all I've got for today...I'm so glad it's Friday. Even with the holiday I have worked far more than normal this week (36 hours at one job & 24 at the other). I'm tired, a little moody, itchy, & so ready for two whole days off!
What are your plans for this weekend?
