Dress update #1
Friday, April 13, 2018
Yesterday the wedding dresses came from Pensylvania. The waists are too small for now, but I will not only shrink more over the next eight weeks but I will get them altered. You can only shink so much in 2 months' time and I'm not good with pressure.
Ate off diet last night. Had 1/2 a bag of tortilla chips. Not nearly as much as the former-lady-who-had-50-pounds-
to-lose would've had! Nibbled on them so they'd last longer. Yes, I regularly eat off diet. No, I didn't feel very guilty. In fact, about halfway through, I reconsidered what I was doing and nearly (but didn't) put the rest back.
Today is a new day. Now that I have my dresses here I feel much more in control of our big day. (can't control when the post office will deliver something you've been waiting for, for two months - Customs! Charges!! GRRR!). Still getting away inexpensively - my wedding dresses are cocktail dresses - I'm 5' tall, still tomboyish and didn't want to look like 'is she wearing the dress or is the dress wearing her'.
We're going to the nearest city next weekend to get chick feed - at the same time I will go to the dollar store and pick up a bunch of fake flowers, glue gun and some floral foam et cetera for the centrepieces. Wow. Two months. Where has the time gone? (we've been engaged 18 months to give everyone, including us, a chance to save up to travel across North America).
