Jen’s Wedding Day: Sunday, July 15, 2012
Today’s Date: Saturday, July 7, 2012
Days To Go: 8
How is it only eight days until Jen’s wedding? Sure, these past few weeks have been crazy, but it still snuck up on me. I had my dress and shoes in hand about three weeks before the wedding date. And the dress hung in the plastic bag for a good three days before I mustered up the courage to try it on.
I tried it on, and it fit! Well, mostly. Needed to take in the top. Story of my life. Not mad, just a predictable fact.
I also tried on my bridesmaid dress from sister Sarah’s wedding. Still fits! Woot! So what if I never followed through with this UBWP thing? (In my defense, I have run/walked the one and only Bix at 6 that has been held so far this year – 7 miles!!!) The dress still fits!
And one must not forget the shoes!
I finally took my dress to be altered at the beginning of this week. Delorus Bockwoldt near Durant is amazing. She’s an older lady who took care of all of the dresses for my sister’s wedding. I called up Delores, trecked on three miles of gravel with Smurfette, and the dress was pinned and ready to go. One day later, I received the phone call that it was ready for pick up.
One week from today at this time, I will be at rehearsal in Loose Park in downtown Kansas City. Unreal that my bestie from college is getting married. So happy for her!
