I said yes to the dress.

Seriously I did. 
I can honestly say I had no intentions of buying a wedding dress yesterday. 
I had every intention of having a corset custom made and making a skirt to go along with it but... as the fates would have it, that isn't going to happen. On essentially a whim my mom and I drove almost an hour out of town to go to a bridal salon, we got there and they were all booked except for one appointment, which we took. I tried on layers and layers of puff and fluff because my "go to" silhouette is the ball gown since I'm a curvy girl, and I can honestly tell you I really liked all the dresses I tried on, but there was at least one thing wrong with each. One wasn't the right shaped top, one was too puffy, was was too short blah blah blah. On another whim we decided to change up the silhouette of the dress and get rid of all the tulle.

The bridal consultant brought me two dresses to try. The first was strapless and all lace. It was super form fitting and straight. It was really pretty, but it just wasn't right. The last dress I tried on was perfect. PERFECT. It fit close to my body and showed my curves, it had the right neckline, the back of it was amazing, and it had a pretty train. (You don't get to know more than that until the wedding day. Sorry guys...blame Aric for reading my blog.) I didn't want to take this thing off. We had budgeted about $1000 for a dress, alterations and all so I'm not going to lie I was a little nervous at the price but guess what? $545. Yeah. Accidental bargain hunting for the win!!! 

Ugh guys I love this dress so much. I can't wait to wear it on the big day!!!

Guess what else happened yesterday? Aric chopped off all his hair!! I'm sad its all gone, but he looks so super cute with his hair that short. I'll post a picture soon. He's a total hottie. What else happened yesterday you ask? Well, I got my ears triple pierced (thank you Aric!!) as a birthday present, and I went non-vegetarian. I'm kinda sad to do it, but I want to loose weight and its easiest to do that if you can eat meat proteins. Plus I'm going to Japan in a little under two weeks so.... yeah. I'm not going to lie though, my first non-veg meal gave me a major tummy ache. Boo. :'(

Bye bye for now. I need to go make myself some of the stuff in the picture above haha. Today is going to be a loooong day. Mommy and I are going to two bridal shows. In one day. Oh gosh!
