Aside from a few little tornado warnings, yesterday was pretty awesome.
For starters, it marked 100 days until our wedding. I can't believe we are really that close. I also can't imagine how I'm ever going get everything on my to-do list crossed off before then. Please send many productive wedding planning thoughts my way.
Yesterday also marked a very exciting point in our house-buying adventure! We are getting so so close. I am still afraid to jinx the whole thing, so I will wait until it is a 100% done deal to share all the details, but I am insanely excited. Both to finally have a house of our own, and especially to be finished with the hunt so I can stop stressing out about it every. single. day. Today I am breathing easier and keeping my fingers crossed for smooth sailing until we close in May. YAY!
On a whim, I decided to check in on the status of both my wedding dress [ordered in Houston] and my bridesmaids' dresses [ordered in Tulsa]. Both were scheduled to come in late April, so I wasn't expecting them to have arrived yet. I guess it was my lucky day, because I got good news from both stores and all the dresses are in! I scheduled my first fitting for my dress when I will be in Houston in May. I am dying to put it on. The store sample was pretty amazing, but this one will be mine. Cannot wait.
I was so nervous about the bridesmaid dresses when we ordered them. The store didn't seem all that organized, but they were the only place in town that carried the dresses I wanted. So I ordered them and hoped for the best. As soon as I heard they were in, I went to go pick them up, so they would be safe with me and nothing would happen to them at the crazy store. Yes, I might be a little paranoid.
When I was a block away from the store, my bridesmaid Francine called me out of the blue. To tell me she was at the dress store. Picking up her dress. What?! So funny that we both randomly ended up at the store at the exact same time without any prior discussion of picking up dresses. So I got to see her try on her dress, which looks beautiful on her, and I picked up the other 3. Then we grabbed sushi at 4pm and discussed bachelorette plans and the other 3 weddings she is in this year in addition to mine. She might as well be a professional bridesmaid.
Then I drove home in Tulsa rush hour traffic listening to weather warnings on the radio and tornado sirens blaring. The rain started about halfway home, nixing my plan to drop off Megan's bridesmaid dress at her house along the way. When I was 2 miles from home, my car was being pelted with hail and I could not see the road in front of me.
And when I got home, the sun was shining.
