Dress Fitting & Weekend Plans

I mentioned yesterday that I had an appointment for my first dress fitting, and it couldn't have gone better!  The dress is just as beautiful as I imagined it {I'd seen too many Say Yes episodes where the bride's first exclamation was "Hmm - that's not how I remembered it looking!" or "That's not my dress!"}.  I was joined by my mother, my Aunt Karen, and Marsha, my future MIL.

Of course I can't show you any pictures from yesterday, so you'll just have to wait until May!  But I will tell you one little clue:  It's a Watters dress.  Can you guess which one?  After the fitting we walked to a nearby restaurant and all sat down for a glass of wine and some good conversation.  It was a wonderful bonding time between my mother, aunt, and future mother-in-law.  They have so many similarities - for example, both Mom and Marsha's families had 4 children: 3 girls and a boy, and in the same birth order of girl/girl/boy/girl.  Marsha told some really endearing stories about Ian, and about what an "absolute joy" he was as a baby.  I found myself getting a little teary-eyed thinking about my handsome fiance being a sweet cooing and smiling joy of a baby.

The fun will continue this weekend as I head down to the lakehouse for a girls' weekend with Mom, Aunt Karen, and my youngest sister Laura.  We'll spend the weekend chatting, reading books, doing a lot of cooking, and drinking wine.  Our dog Drake will come down with me and he'll have a wonderful time frolicking around with Cooper (Aunt Karen's cocker spaniel) and Tipsy (our family's Jack Russell-ish dog).  Pictures to come!  Enjoy your weekend!

PS - You know your Friday is going to be a good one when you walk in to your office at 8:30 in the morning to find this on your desk waiting for you:

Please excuse the poor quality of my Blackberry camera, but that is a stack of 4 magazines (a co-worker and I do a mag swap), a Nutella cupcake, and my wedding invitations!


  1. How fun! Wedding dress shopping and fittings are something you will always remember.

    It does look like your Friday is off to a good start. I wish my friday started off with a cupcake and mags at my desk :)

  2. That swag on your desk is amazing - can't beat that!
