It is COLD here in OR...and raining...but we couldn't stay inside and read a book.....After Krista and BreAnne got off for work the girls and I went to Ross'. We didn't find much - but a sweater and dress for Stacia. We then picked up Mom and went to lunch.
Mom and Dad were working on a project and we all had fun giving our .02 worth of advice. Bottom line....measure twice - cut once.
Krista stopped by when she got off work. We got sucked into watching a couple of episodes of Cake Boss - pretty funny.
Mom, Lori (my cousin), Arielle, Stacia, Krista, Terrah and Bre all met at David's Bridal. After our experience Sunday, I was praying we'd find just what Bre wanted, in her price range - HERE.
Bride, Maid of Honor, Bride's maid share a laugh
Grandma, Bride's Maids wait for Bride to make an appearance
It was bound to happen with a wait and all those mirrors....Krista does the chicken....Terra showed the sprinkler and shopping....Stacia demonstrated ballet.
A dress - not THE dress
She's getting married....
It's the right color - why not? Bride won't let me. ::snort::
Ah - so special to share this night with the girls, Mom and Lori
She found a dress. It's gorgeous! It was 50% off.....below her budget....and when she added the extra essentials it was right at the budget. All the really good photos of Bre in her dream dress are sequestered in a special file on the computer so I don't accidentally post one.
It was GOOD that Krista talked me into coming up now. As it is there are several dresses Bre looked at that wouldn't arrive before the wedding. Bre needs a size 2 and those usually need to be ordered. She tried on a size 2 but it wasn't the dream dress. They started by saying the dress would be here 10 Feb....and we ended with 20 Jan which gives much more wiggle room for any needed alterations.
We now have a location, a dress and nearly a photographer. We'll do some more shopping tomorrow. Yes, I AM praising God for the timing of Bre's engagement. I'm thrilled to be in America and able to be a part of the fun.
Living all of life before the face of God...
