*anyone here tonight?*

DH and I just got back from the Ooka in Doylestown. Going to say the food there is a little better, but the atmosphere in Willow Grove Ooka was better. That's my only review as I don't eat sushi :-).

Anyone do anything fun or exciting this weekend? I got tulips, they are pretty.

    We went for Sushi on Friday :)  We stayed local though, theres a place a few seconds from our house thats a combo chinese/japanese restaurant that has surprisingly good sushi.  Just got back from the movies, saw She's out of your league, it was funny but probably not worth seeing in the movies... It's one of those friday night on-demand sort of movies.

    I'm here too, spent all weekend packing the house. I made an awesome pierogie pizza casserole for dinner tonight and DH and I just watched Zombieland, which was surprisingly good.

    I don't like sushi.

    It was FI's turn to go grocery shopping today and he brought me back a patch of clovers.  St. Patricks day was always a big deal in my house b/c it's my parents anniversary. Hopefully the luck of the Irish will be with me Wednesday b/c I'm going dress shopping agian.  I have under 8 months and I'm starting to get nervous that I haven't found the dress yet.   Glad you had fun!

    yep...i tried on the dress that I have in my bio.  I liked it a lot but since trying it on I don't think I want all that ruching and I think I'd prefer a sweetheart neckline. I'm saving that as a backup dress if I don't find anything within another month because I did like the way I looked in it and for the first time I did feel like a bride when I tried it on.  I've been to countless places and just haven't been wowed yet.

    I'm here too.  I've been home sick most of all weekend, but we were able to pick out our invitations and tuxes - so that's two checks!  Now I just need to get productive with the paper I need to write for class.

    Hey ladies.  Went out on Friday night with DH to Anthony's in Malvern to celebrate our first weekend together as homeowners.  Split a bottle of wine and had a fantastic and joyful date night - such fun.  We were in such a good mood, which made it one of our better dates in a long time. 

    Saturday was spent doing a little grad school work and then heading out for a St. Paddy's day drink (or two or three or four) with kagkiki, her husband, and their friends at Kildare's :)

    Spent today thinking about our impending move and doing a little spring cleaning around the house.  Started throwing away all the stuff that we know we DON'T want to take with us to the new house, which equaled six huge trash bags from our living room, hall closet, bathrooms, and office/spare bedroom.  This week we now need to get two of our old computers to Best Buy for recycling and clean out the closet so we can take a donation to Goodwill.

    Heather, that's so great you got the house!  Moving stinks but once you're in, you'll be so happy.  Congrats on being a homeowner!

    I originally wanted all lace and then decided against it.  I like that dress in my bio but I think it needs a little something more to it.  My problem is that I'm petite and they always want to put me in these little dresses that look nice but I don't feel like a bride in them.  I wish I were taller so that I could wear a ballgown but it's not gonna happen.

    Keep trying, Stacy!  The right dress will find you just like it found me.  (and the rest of us!) I found it helpful to just stay open-minded about what I said I wanted so I wasn't pigeon-holed into a particular style. The first time I went shopping I thought I would wind up wanting something simple, but as soon as I tried on lace dresses I fell in love with how they looked.  Where are you planning on shopping this time?

    We're going to Betty's in Clifton Heights.  I've already been to multiple DBs and Bridal garden in Jersey as well as Lizelle's in Havertown.  I'm just getting nervous b/c of the time.  I'm lucky to have my own seamstress so that I don't have to deal with the stores but I'm still worried about time.  I just hope I'll get that Wow feeling that I hear about.

    I'M SO SICK! :(:(:(:(

    I need to get better because I have my make-up trial today and my menu finalization on Wednesday!

    Stacylynn- have you tried Maggie Sottero's Hunter dress?  It has the same bodice, but without the pick-ups.  You can also add the straps.

    or the Adele is lovely too, but a little more simple

    I agree with PP though- try on things you NEVER thought you would wear.  I swore off strapless and beading.  I wanted nothing to do with it.
    Then Michelle at Country Bride and Gent pulled a dress out and said 'Just try it.  Trust me" and I fell. in . love.

    Good luck on shopping.. let us know how it turns out (with pictures!!)
