Week #22

This past week was heavily influenced by wedding preparations with a few other activities thrown in!

Day 148: Today was the day I had been waiting for - The Briday Expo! There were many different vendors that came to our civic center such as photographers, djs, wedding planners, caterers, and bakers. The most helpful to me though was the wedding fashion show! They had a few shops from around our region show off their wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, as well as some flower girl dresses, dresses for mom, and some tuxes. They also offered, if you went ahead and made an appointment to go to this one shop, you could get $200 off your dress and 1/2 off your veil. This is how I came about finding my dress on the Tuesday of this week. This pic is of the fashion show, even though it is not that good, it is the best I got.

Day 149: Printed off more resumes to send out today. Yay.

Day 150: So I found a wedding dress today! I haven't gone back to get it yet, but I have until the end of this month to use the special deal I mentioned above. Most likely getting it cause I love it, but it is still a wee bit out of my price range, but making some budget changes to make up for it! I did not realize how expensive a veil really was until I started trying on dresses! This pic is of the bottom of my dress that is lace. This pic (uncut) is of the only dress mom got to take one of before we found out no cameras allowed! Guess we were lucky with that one!

Day 151: I've been addicted to oranges this week. I've eaten one every day which is pretty weird for me. The oranges are just so good this time of year which is the complete opposite for most fruits.

Day 152: Added to my collection of Mason Jars I'm using for my wedding.

Day 153: My cousin's wife is having another baby and today I went to her baby shower! If you couldn't already guess, it's a girl! She is naming it Aysley, pronounced like paisley without the "p".

Day 154: We finally had the tasting at Sleepy Hollow today. We were quite impressed with the food, even Phil since he had had their food before. The only drawback now is that they said we couldn't have the ceremony in the location they had originally told us would be okay. So now there is something totally new to consider and we are on the lookout for another location. If any of you know someone who has a farm inbetween Huntington and Teays Valley, WV that would allow us to have a wedding ceremony and/or reception there let me know! This pic is of a birdcage we are using for cards and just represents more wedding decor since I didn't get a pic at the tasting.

I feel as though there will be more and more wedding prep pics coming your way! We are past the 9 month mark and things are moving fast!
