This weekend flew by! Fall break seemed more like a day. In one weekend I saw my an aunt, my grandma, grandpa, papa, visited my sister's classroom, spent a day with Bethany, Erik, and the boys for her birthday, ordered my wedding dress, had dinner with JP's grandparents, had a "meet the parents" dinner with JP's Dad, stepmom and Vern & Rosie, got to see mi hermano, and took engagement photos! If that sentence seems hard to say in one breath, then you understand how crazy busy this Fall Break has been. I always seem to feel like a chicken with its head cut off when running around from one responsibility to the next, but when all is said and done, there's not better feeling than that of accomplishing everything on your "to do" list...and more!
My wedding dress is absolutely perfect! My mom was so right when she first saw it on me and said, "This is nothing like what she had originally wanted." It was one of those moments when it looks awkward on the hanger but fits like a glove! It doesn't come in until March and I can't wait to try it on again! I didn't want to take it off! It was so special to have my grandma, my mom, JP's grandma, mom and sister there. The best surprise was that Sharon and Kimberly showed up! I felt like an absolute princess...and for once, my mom and I agreed on something...that the dress was perfect! I can't wait to walk down the aisle and see JP's face on our wedding day! I keep toying with his mind asking, "what do you think it looks like?" I tell him it's super poofy and nothing like what i'd pick out. His facial expressions in reaction to my comments are priceless! He never can describe what he thinks it will look like, for two reasons...he knows how unpredictable my taste can be and because MEN have NO clue when it comes to fashion or clothing. If it's not a football play, they can't explain much of the abstract taking place in their mind!

now that you have your wedding dress, you can really start to pick colors, flowers, bridesmaid dress, and hairstyle for yourself....the real planning now begins!
