    Hi. How is everyone?
    my day has been good, though my house is still a mess. I met friends for yoga at 10:30 and we were surprised with Bikram instead of what it was supposed to me. Bikram isn’t my top choice anyway but the instructor was irritating as well so kind of a bust. Glad I went though. Then I went for a massage in the afternoon. I went to a body toning class on Monday that kicked my ass so after that and the yoga, I figured a massage would be good. Plus it was the free part of a BOGO.
    I made chicken tortellini soup for dinner using spinich and ricotta tortellinis and leftover chicken. Now DH and I are watching Die Hard, which is described by the TV as Wife, Christmas, Party.
  • Re: Average cost for alterations

    Another update lol 
    I spoke to the bridal shop alterations and she quoted me for taking it in, doing the hem, bustle, fixing the cups about 525 so I figure to line the front and add buttons it won't be too much more. I think you ladies were right about 1000 maybe 1100. 
    My anxiety has lessened about this thankfully.
    Going off of how my body looked when I was 40lbs skinnier, I know I will probably be a standard dress size 6-8 which would make me a bridal 10-12 , that's only 2 to 3 sizes smaller than what I ordered so I think the structure will be ok. --Kinda stinks they required me to order what the largest part of me measured at, its an odd rule--

    Thank you so much everyone! 
    Once I get the final pricing for alterations I am going to add it for other brides to review. 
    that is because it is much easier to take something in than to let it out/ add more fabric.

    DH and I are binge watching MindHunter on Netflix. I think you would like it. Fiction but Ed Kemp is portrayed pretty accurately.
