So I had lots of plans to spend the last week in holiday mode, but my family had other ideas. My BSC crazy mother looked at a venue last week (as in the same day FI proposed because Mom wanted me married like yesterday because she is so desperate for more grandbabies), and would not give up on me booking it. Plus, mom and sister booked dress appointments for me on Saturday because my sister lives in DC and wouldn't be able to come back anytime soon.
So FI and I went into venue overdrive and FOUND one. It's in our budget and in the city. I did not think that was possible. Crazy. Mom will have to get over us not picking her place. Oh well.
And I have a dress hanging in my closet:)
I went to appease my mother and sister and was just going to try on dresses to get an idea. Instead 5 dresses in MY dress was put on me and all else went out the window. They sold me the sample with a 15% discount. Even better.
Please ignore the face I'm making.
And the back:
So FI and I are getting married 8 months from today:)
