Today a hot gentleman propositioned me for a lunch date. I couldn’t turn him down.
Tim and I ended up at The Mixx, a place that is kind of like the Coldstone of salads—you pick a base and mix-ins. (They also have sandwiches and pastas.)
I was way excited about this. I got a spinach base, balsamic vinaigrette (full fat, thankyouverymuch), and mixed in roasted turkey, roasted yams, balsamic mushrooms, dried cranberries, goat cheese and pecans.
It was awesome.
I am ashamed to admit that the salad defeated me. This thing was HUGE. I barely made a dent in it! It was super good, but next time I’ll get half the dressing. It was super filling.
Around 4 o’clock before my dress fitting, I snacked on a Clif Mojo Mountain Mix bar. Love these!
Then the time came—the first time I tried on my dress since September, when it was awful and I hated it.
I made two big changes this time—I wore a crinoline underneath so the skirt was fuller and I pulled my hair back so my Yeti fro didn’t distract from the dress. I also brought my veil to try!
AND I LOVED IT AGAIN!
My other option was a one-point, which I don’t think looked as good.
The seamstress had to go answer a few questions, so I played MySpace teen for awhile.
I wanted to get a picture of the earrings with the dress—I like them!
You know what? My body ain’t perfect. But I am still beautiful. I love that this dress shows my curves, and I don’t care that I’m not 10 pounds lighter. I feel great.
Anyway, Tim left for Vegas and said “there’s three packages in the wedding room.” Yes, our spare room is now the wedding room. Behold.
(Is this shameful? I probably shouldn’t put this on the internets.)
Anyway, two wedding gifts! Fancy hampers! We plan to use one for clothes, and one for punishing Buckley.
And our new shower curtain and trash can!
And my shower dress came. Guess what? Another FAIL. I LOVE the dress, but there is an under-boob seam that does not jive with my boobies. It sits waaay too low and I wouldn’t be comfortable. Back to the drawing board. Anyone want to find me a shower dress?
Also, 11 yes RSVPs in the mail!
Anyway, it’s 8 o’clock and I just got home, so I need to shower and, you know, do stuff.
What do you think? Do we have a winner?
