We are less than a month from my wedding, and the insanity has begun.
Friday, I didn’t go to work (I was on duty on Sunday, and I’ve been told I was hitting it a little hard at the office 🙂 ), so I took off to Charlotte with Michael (a bridesman who has been incredible at keeping me on track), to pick up my wedding dress. Michael is amazing. We have been friends for like 10 years, and he allows me to be me, which is a quality that is sometimes difficult to find in friends.
Now keep in mind, I haven’t really seen my dress since December, and it was INCREDIBLE. I really really wish I could share a pic, but I will let you be surprised. But suffice it to say that I’m feeling REAL body confident – the dress fit like a glove, and really flatters me. I’m excited to see what it looks like with hair and makeup, and I’m excited to see what Austin thinks, day of. So from here, I’m having a few alterations done, having the dress cleaned, and that will be DONE!
After driving all over creation to get the dress, we hit the Harris Teeter to order flowers, which is saving us SO much money, and I finished out Friday by hitting a Zumba party at the Cary Y.
It was really cool because I was able to see other instructor’s choreo and decide what I’d like to steal, and what I can take from their style. The BEST part though, was the fact that Vinh, a talented young instructor, revealed a coconut bikini and grass skirt, and proceeded to teach ALL of his songs in that. I was crying laughing, and he wore it to the little mocktail party we set up after, where there was a card waiting for me to wish me the best at my new job.
Between all of that, my brother was in town for his orientation at NC State, and we spent a lot of time doing all of that fun orientation stuff, getting him sheets, getting him to where he needed to go and…oh.
I found a house we really really like.
I’ll keep you posted. How was your weekend?
