one more

I don't post pictures well. Out of the three photos below the first two are swtiched around. This first dress is the smutty dress and the second one is the one I would have bought!


I am writing two posts in a row because shopping is aparently on my mind. Since I am now getting my wedding dress made, I thought that I would post some of the wedding dresses I looked at when shopping at David's Bridal. None of these dresses really fit my personality, so I am very thankful for the opportunity to have my dress made. Ok...enough babbling here are my dress options.

1. This dress is the dress I probably would have gotten had I not gone to Crystal.
2. This next dress is my smutty dress but I just had to try it on.
3. I liked this dress but my mom thought it looked it bit trashy.
4. The dress up top mom made me try on. All I have to say is "SERIOUSLY?!"

Yoga Pants

Let us talk about materialism and how I sometimes am deep in the middle of it. There are many times when I am out and about and I pick something up that I would like to have, I walk around the store with it and then I put it down (usually not in the right place. I know I know it's terrible, but I give the workers at the store their jobs). I am usually pretty good at asking myself, "do I really need this?" However, there are times when I get something in my mind that I really want and I usually end up getting it. It usually is an unnecessary purchase but I become obsessed. For instance, last April, I had this crazy need for electric blue heels. I really really wanted a pair of blue heels, why you may ask? I have no idea. Either way I ended up getting a pair and have worn them three times I think.
So my new crazy thing that I really want to have is a pair of wide leg yoga pants. I don't know why, I just want them. Not only do I want a pair of yoga pants but I want a cute warm top to go with them. Now I have one pair of yoga pants so I don't really need another pair, but does in my crazy mind it doesn't matter. I went and bought a a nifty little outfit. Oh the desire to shop. I will probably have to start praying for conviction over my desire to have. I usually have to do that about once a year.

Many exciting events happened today. Ok not really many but...
Today I met with the woman who is making my wedding dress. Her name is Crystal Allen. First of all she is beautiful and has amazing hair. Second she is extremely talented and I can't wait to see what she is going to do with the dress! Today we picked out the fabric and color swatches.
I just finished watching the end of an episode of MADE on MTV. The girl that wanted to be "made," wanted to be a cheerleader. She really was not that good but made significant imporvements at the end of the show. And she made the cheerleading squad. I was so proud of her and I totally sat here and cried. She made her high school dream!!
Lastly I had a great time with Jesus this morning and I can't wait to share what I am learning. More to come...

My family celebrated Thanksgiving early this year. Usually our family holidays are somewhat tense and chaotic. This year we our Thanksgiving was a blessing. We had so much fun. My little brother flew in from New York and my sister, brother in law and my nephews were here as well. I love being with my family and wish that I had more time to spend with them.

I have many friends who keep people updated on their lives via blogging, myspace, facebook... and I thought that perhaps it would be time to join the bandwagon to see if I have anything interesting to contribute. I am not sure what this blog is going to look like, maybe it will be postings about my spritual journey and learnings. Maybe it will be an update of all the wedding plans. Maybe it will include details of my oh so interesting life. Or maybe, it will be filled with all of my insightful wonderments.
