Let's start at the beginning (a very good place to start) <--Sound of Music reference. Noticed it? Five points for you, Glen Coco.
I was going to share a picture of what I wore to work on Tuesday, but then I realized that I looked like a librarian. So... that killed that idea. Black Skirt, Ella Moss. White Blouse, No Idea. Sandals, Jack Rogers. Brown Cardigan, J. Crew. Imagine me as a non-Librarian. K thanks. :)
Basically, here was my Tuesday morning: Start to freak out about all the things on the to-do list for my wedding that are not done. Have a freak out and am late to work as a result. I finally go on a walk, pull up my Bible app and read Song of Solomon, and start to feel a lot better. A lot of positive thinking and Bible searching going on over here.
|Feeling crappy? Insecure? Not lovely? Stressed?|
No matter the trouble, this gets me every time.
|You're a cheap date, baby, but I'll take it.|
After work, I headed up to the burbs. I had to haul a few things via train, including a pair of heels, because I had not yet gotten properly fitted for the length of my dress. Apparently, I also accidentally brought my empty plastic wine cup. Silly.
|I did not intentionally cover up the description on the shoe box, but now I'm kind of glad I did. :)|
When I arrived, my brother picked me up at the station and stopped at Starbucks for some brew, then headed to my parents' house for a few hours of wedding crafts (paint this, rub that, pack this, cut that) and more than a sufficient amount of snacking.
|I like to order an unsweet iced coffee and then add my own almond milk or whole milk.|
Our appointment for my "Final" Dress fitting was at 8:30, so my mom and sister and I drove over after dinner (chicken and greek salad, way to go mom).
|Don't get too excited... that's my robe, not my dress!|
My sister helped me explain to the seamstress what the problem was, and she immediately understood us and found a solution. I am so grateful that she was the one helping us that day, because we have had less competent people in the past. Thanks, God.
Now there are a few more alterations needed... meaning my "Final" Dress Fitting was not final at all and I will have to go back this week. Perfection takes time, my friends.
What do you think?
- What kind of dress do you think I picked?
- If you're married, what did YOU choose? Or what WOULD you choose if you were getting married now?
