And We Have A Dress!!!

As some of you already know I traveled to Utah last week to attend a friends wedding AND to shop for a wedding dress. I am perplexed at the fact that you cannot find a modest dress in Oklahoma City without special ordering it. Come on people there has to be more of us that want to be modest. But alas you cannot find one so off to Utah I went.
I traveled with my mom driving all night. Yes we were both about dead by the time we got there but I'm glad we did the all night driving. My loving John was not happy and in fact didn't sleep at all that night because he was worried about us. Some of you know I was very concerned about finding a dress to fit this NOT so small woman. The dress I found was the second one I tried on and I knew it was the one. So yes you can give me a hard time for stressing out about it. Through this process I have found that you just can't worry about what size you are its all about how you look and feel in the dress.
I still have so much to do but as the days click by I'm getting more and more excited to start my life with an amazing man. Who by the way is jealous he hasn't seen the dress.

I have been able to make some major headway on deciding some things the last little bit, while at the same time attending girls camp, trying to decide when to move out of my apt, what I'm keeping and not keeping, working 40+ hours a week and oh finding time to sleep in there somewhere. So far we have the caterer, photographer, wedding announcement design kinda decided, colors chosen, reception and open house dates and times decided and a few other small details. I have to admit that using friends and family for some things has been a huge help. Thanks all you know who you are. Next up a trip to Utah to find the dress. Its the one item Im stressing about. I have been told by John to quit stressing so I'm working on that. There are times I wish I had a fairy godmother who could wave her magic wand and magically have some of this stuff decided, sorted packed ect. I don't recommend moving and getting married at the same time. NOT a good Idea!!!
