Here's a shot of my cousin Alex on the ski lift!
Since Bear was going to be gone all day, Aunt Judy and I decided to go wedding shopping, my favorite thing to do! We went to a family owned place called Celebrations.
The consultant was really nice and probably the most helpful wedding industry employee that I've encountered. I think her name was Ashley. Anyway, the biggest reason I hadn't purchased a dress yet is because I was torn. I'm all out of faith. This is how I feel. I'm cold and I'm ashamed... wait. This isn't original writing anymore! Imagine me singing this song in a coffee shop, because that's what I'm actually doing.
Seriously, though, I couldn't decide between a few dresses. The biggest problem is that I couldn't find a store that carried all three dresses, which made it difficult to compare. This store also had only one dress. As usual, I put it on and said, I love this, but now I can't remember the other two. The consultant whose name may be Ashley went into the back, searched for a long time, and finally brought out the other two dresses, seemingly from a magic closet. Actually, they were dresses that brides had ordered but not picked up yet. I couldn't try them on, but I could look at them all next to each other. It was like someone turned a light on. I immediately knew which dress I wanted.
Girl whose name may be Ashley, I love you.
I ordered the dress, which made my entire family happy
because they wouldn't have to shop with me anymore. I didn't have to pay sales tax if they were shipping the dress, so I actually saved about $5 by having it shipped to Ohio. Who knew? Brilliant.
Later that day, we went to a French bakery, gambled, and went to see Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which is one of my favorite books. I thought the movie was pretty good, but I don't see how someone who didn't read the book could appreciate it. In fact, I think that about most movies adapted from books.
After Barry got home later, we packed up to leave in the morning!
