The Dress


So, today, I made an unexpected purchase. I haven't even been thinking about getting my wedding dress yet because frankly, I wanted to figure out everything else first. Like the church, the reception, the accomodations, the colors...oh yea, and I wanted to hit the gym at least twice.

Anyway, I got a sale email from Ella Weiss, the boutique in downtown Springfield...so I went to check it out.

I hadn't planned on staying long because I was going to work at 2pm. It was 1pm when I arrived. Long story short, I went in, tried on a few dresses and came out with a winner (55 minutes later.)

My friend Larissa will appreciate this--Stephanie, the owner, said that Larissa was so low-maintenance when she came in. Apparently, she picked out her dress and that was that. Today, Stephanie said I gave Larissa a run for her money!

My friend Laurie told me not to go shopping alone, to have my friends and my mom go and take pictures...to look around...but I guess I just wasn't feeling it today. One thing to scratch off my list.

Good times...and by the way, the above is not my dress. Jim won't see it until Sept. 2008...but for anyone else, the girls at EW said I could come by and visit it anytime...

I wish you much success. You and Jim make a good looking couple.

Yea you! That take a friend with you thing is really silly. Imagine standing there in awe of how great you look in a dress and someone having the ovaries to say you look like crap. I don't know anyone with that kind of gall!

You've inspired me. Perhaps my big find is on its way! All this planning stuff is getting crazy.

Miss you too! I've been looking for an excuse to come see you. Need any help getting wedding stuff done? I'll make address or budget spreadsheets, make calls, be the bitch so you don't look like a bridezilla! I want you to have the best day!
