good things and the maybe gown

14 Jul

i am really having a great couple of days. the highlights:

my sister was in town this weekend, and aside from some karaoke hilarity, we also did some wedding things, which makes it all feel a little more real. my family hadn’t seen any of my wedding choices in person before, as we’re all scattered across the northeast, and it was definitely a grounding experience. i took her to the farm, and she had a look at the grounds and the barn and loved both. she’s brainstorming some ideas for us, and i’m excited to hear her thoughts on everything (she used to be a photo producer for martha stewart weddings, so she knows her stuff).

we also did a dress try-on, which was fun–she got teary and said that she loved it, and that she didn’t have that reaction to any of the other gowns i tried on during our nicole miller appointment. inneresting.

here’s what it looks like on a model. it looks about the same on me, except that the peaks of the bodice go up higher (i think they tugged & pinned this to make it appear to fit the model).

i would probably uncross the straps in the back, if i end up keeping this.

Picture 2

so that’s that. i don’t know about a train on a farm, but one thing at a time.

the other good news? there’s a solid chance that i’m moving into manhattan in a few weeks. the rent is peanuts. it’s all related unofficial word that d-money’s gotten a new job that comes with some wonderful perks (this being the biggest). i. am. thrilled.

the other great part? we can finally get a dog. david’s already named it lord maximillian pancake III. quite a title for a bulldog, no? (he’s obsessed with bulldogs, and i’ve been won-over.)
