So... tonight I went shopping with some of my bridesmaids for their dresses. I never realized, that this is QUITE an experience. Thank goodness I have the best ladies EVER... really, I'm super lucky... and we finally found what we were looking for. NOW... let's just hope they're here in time for the wedding or we'll have to do some last minute scrambling and have a "rainbow brite" wedding! They are going to look GREAT and all you have to know is that they don't look a BIT like this...
After we chose all their dresses, we came to the part that we'd all been waiting for and I tried on MY dress. They hadn't seen it yet. My mom saw it and after seeing me try on like... 35... started crying. I love the "gasp" that happens when I wear it. I can't help it... I just LOVE it. Didn't want to take it off. (sigh) Finally had to put it to bed on it's little hanger there and head out for the eve. (see you soon!)
We didn't get far. Afterwards we were chatting in the parking lot until we were all so chilly that we HAD to bid farewell. The owner of the shop came out.. and the seamstress too... we were still there chatting as they all drove away. Sheesh, sometimes I feel like I need to join the "on and on and on" society! I actually realized again while we were chatting how in love with Shaun I am. I am just CRAZY about him. He doesn't ever go on the computer, so he won't see this and get all embarrassed, but I really feel so utterly blessed. He is simply perfect for me. I was talking about certain things with my ladies and (I know, I'm such a sap) but I couldn't help but start crying. SUCH a sap. I just want to put on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt and run down the aisle tomorrow! If the next 3 months seem too far away sometimes, what I want to know is, ...how the heck have I lived so long without him? January, PLEASE come soon!
- Marijanna and Shaun
- We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.
