I have a story to share with you.

I'm not gonna lie about it, I'm pretty excited to be getting married to my dream guy.  Planning and preparations have begun.  Today, I'm feeling pretty victorious.  I'm not sure why, but I was dreading the wedding dress shopping experience.  I've been trying to keep my mind open to new and different ways to save money on that part especially.    It's a long and boring story, but cruising around online, I found a dress that I loved.  Cruising a little more online and I found it for a third of the price.  Throwing caution to the wind, I purchased a wedding dress online from a retailer in Illinois that I had never seen in person and certainly never tried on.  Oh my.

It showed up today.  And it's perfect.  Perfect as in: I really wouldn't even need to get it altered if I was getting married next week.  It's beautiful, it fits and it's even long enough.  I don't have to go wedding dress shopping!!!

And here is the box that held this ray of sunshine today:


  1. I wish you would post the picture of you in the ball cap -- it is priceless!

  2. I just read this,... and smiled.
    Smiled and shook my head...
    Because,.. only you would order your wedding dress online. lol
    That is so very awesome and so very you.
    have I mentioned lately,.. that I'm excited for you?!? Cause I AM!! =)

  3. Don't be silly mom - I can't post that picture. Then Brian would be able to see me in the dress before the wedding :)

    Jo - you crack me up. You should have seen how flipping proud of myself I was. I'm just glad that people still love me in spite of my quirks.
