shoes and makeup

Ok people, I need your help. Where did you get your makeup done/who did it/what did you use for your wedding (or any other fancy event in your life) and where did you get your shoes/what brand/what's your opinion on wedding shoes? I definitely want something that I'm going to be comfortable in, but I also want them to look glamourous! ;0) I also don't know what to do about my makeup. I have someone doing my hair already, but I don't have anyone for makeup. So help me out here people! I need ideas! Please???!!

THANKS!! :0)

I got my dress!

Yesterday was a day that I've been dreaming of for over 25 years. :0) I FINALLY (I said finally like I've been searching for months or something..haha) found my wedding dress..the ONE! It's beautiful, gorgeous, perfect, and everything I was looking for and didn't know I wanted! ;0) I was blessed to find it in Shreveport this weekend with my future MIL and SIL. We had a great time!

It was quite an adventure in the beginning when "Grandma" was trying to help us, but thank goodness we were successful when Mrs. Jodie came to the rescue! I tried on several dresses, even after I tried on "my" dress. I knew I liked it the most out of all that I tried on, but still kept trying on dresses just to make sure! I knew it was the one when I kept going back to this one! It all worked out perfectly. I was able to take it right off the rack, another blessing, now that I don't have to worry about ordering it and tons of alterations! I'm just going to have to have the hem altered a bit, but that shouldn't be very hard! I was very pleased overall with our trip! I'm so glad that I found it this weekend. :0)

Of course I can't put a picture of my dress online, (even though Bryan promises he won't look..haha) but if you want to see it, let me know and I'll e-mail it!

YAY for finding the perfect wedding dress!

weekend recap :0)

Well this is going to be short and sweet because Bryan is fixing to call, but my weekend was pretty good! All the family/moms arrived Fri. night/Saturday morning and the girls headed out to try on dresses. I ended up going to Terry Costa and David's Bridal. It was a lot of fun trying on wedding dresses, but good Lord, I didn't know it was so much work! Who would have thought trying on dresses was such a work out, but it was! Even though it was lots of fun, I didn't end up finding THE ONE. I found lots of things that I liked in each dress, but not all of them in one dress, that was in my price range. I was a little disappointed, but it was ok. At least I tried on different things, so now I know what I do/don't like. I'll keep searching until I find THE ONE! :0)

We were all able to go by our reception site, Edison's, for the first time. It was AMAZING and we absolutely loved it. I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. It suits Bryan and I so much and I'm so happy! I can't wait!

Other productive things that we got done were editing the guest list and estimating who was/wasn't coming along with all the maybe's. Good times..haha. We also had a very successful day at Market on Monday. I'm happy to announce that we were able to get my wedding band! It's a long story, but we ended up getting it at a completely different store than where Bryan bought my engagement ring. It turned out perfect because it matches my ring perfectly, was in my exact size, and was the perfect price! The ring turned out to be half off, and it was wayyyy cheaper than Bryan had even planned on spending! It was a complete miracle and we were all so happy! Whoo hoo! Bryan even let me wear it for like an hour before he took it home. I was sad to see it leave, but excited that we got it!

This weekend my dress hunt will still continue, as I now head to Shreveport. Hopefully I'll find THE ONE this weekend, but who knows! I know she's out there somewhere! Haha..

Well, I better sign off for the night. Sweet dreams!

I have no motivation!

I have so much stuff to get done, however all I want to do is stay on the internet. Bryan says I have an addiction, and I'm sure he's right! ;0)

My house is a complete mess. My Christmas tree is still up. Along with the decorations. I guess it was so exciting this year that Bryan was here this year to help put everything Christmas up, that I just don't want to take it down without him..but I must. The clothes that I washed 2 weeks ago are still in the laundry basket, in the middle of my the way-but I haven't moved them. I just keep adding things to it. The clean dishes are still in the dishwasher and the dirty ones are in the sink. Why can't I just put them up?

Oh and I also haven't even started to finish all my report cards. Yeah, they go home tomorrow.

The good reason that I have to get all of this stuff done is that on Friday Bryan is coming! Not only is he coming, but so is my future mother and sister in law, AND my mom! We have big plans for this weekend! Saturday we're going to take the moms and Rachel to see our church and reception site, and then all the girls are going dress shopping! This is my first time so I'm really excited! I can't wait for all of them to get here!

So I guess I better get off my lazy butt and kick the cleaning into overdrive :0)

within such bleakness comes great beauty

These pictures were taken this past Monday at school. This was the view outside my window! :0) It was beautiful.

It's finally finished..or most of it! ;0)

Yes, I am talking about our wedding website! I've actually had it and been working on it for a while, but I've just wanted it to be perfect before I announced it to the world. However, I realized it would likely be June and still might not be perfect, so I've done what I can for now, and am just letting it go! So, without further delay, I am proud to announce our wedding website! Check it out and leave us some comments! I can't wait! ;0)

It's that time!!!!

Well, just call me lazy because I haven't posted recently, but I promise I'll post later! However, I have more important matters to announce! TODAY IS THE DAY...that we're going to REGISTER! Whoo hoo! I'm very excited about this, however also a little bit nervous. I guess before I just thought of registering for your wedding was just lots of fun, and you get really cool stuff, and it was no big deal. However, it's not really as a I thought. I'm sure it's going to be so much fun, but it's also required a lot of homework from us. We have done our homework, but Bryan's basically given me most of the choices when it comes to decorating and choosing things. To which then comes the stress...which color mixer to get, what colors do I want to do my kitchen in, what's my bathroom theme going to be..blah, blah, blah.

I'm honestly very glad that I've been given most of the choices in decorating our home and I know that Bryan is going to help me with decisions, but I'm just worried about choosing something wrong. I'm worried about changing my mind or not liking something I picked out and then having to live with it the rest of my life. I know I'm probably being stupid, but oh well! :0)

So, to the point of my post, I would really appreciate any comments or advice that any of you readers have when it comes to registering. I'd really appreciate it! I'll try and post later on how everything went!
