Weekend Update

 
I'm a Monday scrooge today! BOO MONDAY! I had one of the best weekends I've had in a long time, so it's really hard to face the work week again.
 
I can't help but just gush about it because I BOUGHT MY WEDDING DRESS Y'ALL!!! OMGeeeee I'm so overly excited about it!!! Of course I can't show you pictures so you will just have to wait until April like everyone else. But if I do say so myself it's absolutely gorgeous, stunning, perfect for me. I bought it from a local boutique called White Lace & Promises, which was just a perfect, girly, fun, awesome experience. It was very much like a bridal salon that I pictured. Much better than my David's Bridal generic experience. {Not to knock David's because I'm still getting my bridesmaid dresses there, but my dress experience there didn't live up to what I imagined.} This dress was almost double what I had hoped to spend - thank you Mama!- but it's worth it. They are basically taking two dresses that I loved and combining them into my perfect dress. I am already counting down the days until it comes back in mid-February and I can go see it!
 
We also go to go to the first football game for us this season on Saturday night. I was a little nervous up until half time about the way the Vols played, but they ended up pulling it off smoothly. I just don't have high expectations for this coming weekend vs. Georgia.

 I finished reading Divergent on Friday night! I think I loved this one more than the Delirium series. Anybody else read both series? I am going out today to get the sequel Insurgent. Bad news is the 3rd book in the series doesn't come out until Fall 2013 so like the Delirium series we have to wait until next year to find out what happens. I heard they are making a movie too! I just can't seem to get enough of these Utopian Hunger Games style of books right now.
 
How was your weekend?? Link up with Sami Shenangians and share your weekend stories and pics!

Yipppeeeee to finding your wedding dress!! I agree with DB. It was an awful experience for me as well that ended in a true Bridezilla melt down. So glad I walked away from there and got a real bridal experience that also ended up doubling my budget! LOL

Here's to being happy on a Monday! :/

Yea! For finding your wedding dress! I can't wait to see the pictures in April!

I just went with my BFF to start her dress shopping and her David's Bridal experience left a lot to be desired!

So glad you found your dress!! I can't wait to see pictures! Are you going to the game still?!

Rachel said...

EEEEK! Can't wait to see your wedding dress...I'm sure it's absolutely stunning and you'll be the most beautiful bride ever!

Stephanie @ bourbon and glitter said...

I don't know if I knew before that you're wedding was April, but that's awesome and I have to say you're the best bride ever for not getting married during football season! I don't think I can handle one more fall wedding.
Now then, on to the dress. I must see it before April. I simply cannot wait that long. Make it happen? K thanx. What did you decide on the veil idea?

Kathy said...

i can't seem to get through insurgent but i LOVE divergent. maybe i'll try it again.

i'm assuming you read the hunger games already? if not, you must pick up that trilogy because it's so amazing.
