Just kidding! I mean I like polka dots and all, but I'm not crazy. These lovely little numbers were actual dresses from Lett's Bridal....and it is safe to say that the best part of the day was when we were greated by none other than Mr. Lett himself. As soon as we walked in his little shop, he said "I have a question for you ladies....do you feel half as good as you look?" --we were smitten with him from the start....and I think e was ready to marry him....he was such a cute old guy! I did find my dress (from a much more serious bridal shop), and it is white (well technically ivory) and it is lovely. Dress shopping turned out to be quite an ordeal. Two of the places we went to were just not up to par. You would not believe the obnoxious dresses out there! Plus, we learned that I have an abnormally large rib cage and small boobs (well we already knew that second part). (I want to meet one of these small-rib-cage-busty women out there....I don't think they exist.) Anyway, e's solution was to offer to break a few of my ribs....such a great maid of honor huh? But luckily I had both my mom and e with me to not only help me zip up these monstrosities but also to help make the big decision. According to e, angels sung and the heavens opened up when I put on the dress, so we knew that it was the one! And no, I will not send out pictures of the actual dress...you all will just have to wait until October 5th to see me in all my glory!
It was great to have some company this weekend and finally have my bff visit me out here in Michigan. Even the weather cooperated and it was around 30 degrees for several days! (That may sound very cold to you California people, but to us Michiganders, it was a welcomed warming trend!) (I just referred to myself as a Michigander.....someone please help me!). Anyway, we had a great time attempting to try on insane dresses, texting our friend Heather completely obnoxious dresses that we claimed were what I wanted the bridesmaids to wear, eating caramel apples, and making the save the date cards (with Jon's mom and sister too!). Overall it was a great weekend. Plus my mom took me shopping and bought me a few things....which is ALWAYS appreciated!

This is a pic from when I kidnapped her for her birthday....isn't she cute? I might just have to blindfold her again when I pick her up from the airport....and tell her not to speak...and then drop her off in a remote location and make her find her way to my apartment....just kidding, I would never do that....oh the good ol' days!

The Poop Monster must think this is just a fun game....some days he'll try to make me think he has converted back to the box...but then, just when I am about to jump for joy at my awesome kitty whispering techniques, he leaves me yet another unwanted present on the bathroom floor. Suggestions on what I should do are welcomed.
So as I am leaving my apartment this morning to make the long trek into work, my snow-hatin' Jeep informs me that it is 1 degree outside. Yup, you read that right...1 DEGREE! I almost threw up in my mouth a little bit at the sight of that lonely number. As if yesterday's 3 degree weather wasn't bad enough! And then, once I make it in to work (alive, thank God! and still wearing my boots and my coat to warm up) my bff "e" (new nickname as of today) emails me this little gem "it was 77 here yesterday." By "here" she means back home in glorious California. I quickly responded that I hate her.

I've decided that it is time for me to start writing a blog. Not that my life in cold Michigan(and when I say "cold" I mean extreme don't go outside with wet hair or you will have icicles on your head kind of cold) is particularly interesting...BUT I am planning a wedding and have family out in California that I don't get to see very often...SO I am writing this blog so that they can know what is going on in my oh-so-cold-and-fabulous life. Plus, I have been inspired by the Pioneer Woman (please check out her blog, it will change your life http://www.thepioneerwoman.com/). So if she can do it, so can I! And if no one reads my blog, oh well...it provides me with some entertainment!
