Today day I learned the fine art of squeezing every minute out of an hour. I had a doctors appointment in the wee hours of the morning (8:30) which I didn't get out of till ten o clock, then I went 40 minutes across town to look at some wedding dresses only to rush back home just in time to get to work by 2:00 where I closed. My mom has been getting antsy lately because of how slowly things have been moving wedding wise. I told her not to worry because we have plenty of time. It doesn't help that we have been understaffed at Payless this last week causing me to work double my usual amount of hours. We need to have the venue nailed down by next week which would take a miracle considering the fact that I am still working pretty regular hours and I am using one of my off days to drive down to Mobile to look at an apartment. There is good news however in just one short hour I will get to see my best friend who I haven't seen since the beginning of May! I miss her and am thrilled that she will be here soon and I catch her up on all the wedding stuff and get her opinion on some dresses.
Following my stream of consciousness, today I may have found my wedding dress. I'm 90% sure its the one for me. I'm taking my dad to see it Friday and I'm hoping the other 10% comes from him. I don't know if you know this, but wedding gowns weigh approximately a million pounds. I fell in love with this one when I put it on and I did not feel as if an elephant was sitting on my chest or as if I was walking in mud. It is chiffon meaning light, flowy, and free. I feel like a butterfly when I'm wearing it. I feel like someone should be playing a harp when I put it on (which I did three times today at the dress shop). I could probably fly in that dress if I tried hard enough. Okay, okay, so I'm exaggerating that does not lessen the awesomeness of this dress. There is one more place that I need to visit on the recommendation of a friend, but it is going to be a hard one to beat. It's kinda the Karate Kid of dresses. I'll let you know how that progresses.
