Wow, this has been quite the week/last weekend. On Friday/Saturday FI and I went up to visit my parents and on Sat my sister (MOH) picked out her bridesmaid dress! The designer is Bill Levkoff. I decided that since my other 2 bridesmaids couldn't make it and since I didn't care too much if all 3 wore the same dress or not (esp since my BFF is hoping to be pregnant again by my wedding!), my sister would get to pick out her dress first and the other two could wear that dress if they wanted or pick out a different one. I think FSIL will just get the same as my sister, but I'd be surprised if BFF got the same one. That designer has a couple of maternity-style dresses and the price is quite reasonable. My sister looks so cute in the one she picked out!
The lighting in that place is kind of awful. It won't be black either - it'll be yellow! This designer had the best yellow of all the samples the consultant showed me. The dress is chiffon-ish with a satin-y belt and flowers on the side. We liked that one the best and came back to it after she had tried on all the others. I asked her if she wanted to pick out any others and try them on and she said no. I asked if she wanted to pick this dress and she said yes! It hasn't been ordered yet - she said she wanted to wait until Dec when we all will go and FSIL and BFF will get to pick theirs.
As for the downs, FI and I had a really hard discussion on Sunday. We almost postponed the wedding and almost took a break! But, we're still together and the wedding is still on for July 5. I'm glad we had that talk and we're much better now. I think we got into a little bit of a rut. The tough convo needed to happen though, although it still makes us both sad to think about it. I haven't been around as much and won't be as often because part of this was we agreed to limit electronics while we're together so we can focus on each other. We're also intensifying our house hunt (got on in our sight but our realtor is off deer hunting right now!) and if we don't find anything within the next few weeks, I'm going to start looking for an apartment (currently, I'm living with FI's grandma - which is free, but I can't stand it! and FI lives with his parents) since that was part of why I was in a rut and unhappy.
Well, that's my week. Definitely some ups and downs. I got a good reminder though, of what I'm thankful for - timely with Thanksgiving around the corner. And, I've got to do some baking - which will help pick up my week! Can't wait for some days off and good ol' family time!
