This weekend has been absolutely amazing so far. My mom came to town to visit and as I write this she is passed out next to me in bed. I could not be happier.
What a day it has been! It started with wedding dress shopping at 10:30 this morning- all I can say is WOW. The bridal shop we went to is actually an old house that has been turned into a bridal/formal wear boutique. The bridal gowns filled up two giant rooms and we went through and grabbed everything that looked good. My “dressing room” was a giant bedroom with no furniture in it except a mirror and chairs for the bridal party. It was such an amazing and intimate experience.
The first gown I put on was gorgeous and we (mom, sister, maid of honor, and I) all immediately burst into tears. We only cried one other time, and that was when I found the one. I can’t believe I found my wedding dress the first time I ever looked! Today brought me so much happiness; I can’t even begin to imagine how much joy my actual wedding will bring. All day I have been walking around with a perma-grin on my face and have been more flighty than usual. I feel like I am twitterpated.
Immediately after three and a half hours of wedding dress shopping, my selfless mother was ready to help me revamp my bedroom. I don’t think you can even call it a bedroom. It was a room that happened to have a bed in it and I happened to sleep there. It was a dumping ground for junk. It was not decorated or put together at all. I am extremely sensitive as to how a room “feels” so not having it feel cozy since we moved in has been really hard for me. To even try and think about redoing it was super stressful though.
Then came mom. She has always been extremely talented with interior decorating so I knew she would be the woman for the job. Little did I know how quickly and efficiently she could get things done. From start to finish, it took 3 hours. Here it is!
