We are going to be quite a good looking pair of sisters

So the entire bridal party, which consists of my sister and my two nieces, all have their dresses! We found my sister's dress yesterday and it's perfect. We all just need shoes and the little ones need their sashes and head bands. The dress looks great on my sister and the place where we are ordering it from will make sashes for the flower girls. I'm thinking that when it comes to shoes that I might have to dye them, and if mine are the teal then it will be perfect for the flower girls to also have teal shoes.

The dress it the only thing that has been crossed off the list so far. But all it will take is one trip home and I'll have a ton taken care of. I just have to hope that I get that chance come time soon.

No other wedding news. I do suppose that I need to start registering pretty soon. I just need to decide on what we need. I wish that we had the time to do it when he got back, but I don't think that we will...

Other news: I get to pick out a new dishwasher today since the one at the house is broken and has been for over a month. Washing dishes by hand is not as much fun as I remember it being when I was a kid at my Maw-maw Katie's house.

I had a better title but thought better of putting my last name in the blog.

Well I've hit a wall...

I found a pair of shoes that I really loved, but apparently the entire world sold out Monday evening between 4 and 9pm. Apparently my future husband had little faith in my internet searching ability (clearly he has lost his mind in the dessert), because he searched the internet and was shocked that everywhere had really sold out. But he did have a good point. I don't need the shoes today, I can wait and look for a while. I don't need my dress altered right this second.

I've had a very long and exhausting week and it's only Wednesday. I've been at a pediatrician's office for the past two days which wears me out. Having small children scream in your face all day while you squeeze blood from their fingers, makes for an exhausting day (especially when you have to work right after).

I'm ready for all of this to be over. December when I'll be done with this part of school and this school in particular; January when Tye will be home (YAY!); and April when we will be married!

One step closer!

I found my dress!!! I went with my mom, aunt, sister, and niece and found the perfect dress. It was the first dress that I tried on, and while I tried on other dresses, none of them compared. However, I still have a lot to accomplish. I still need shoes, which comes with it's own dilemma... What color? My dress is diamond white, so finding a shoe that color could be tricky. Then I think maybe I should go with a teal colored shoe that I will wear again, since I will never wear a white shoe. So I can't decide, but I need to so that I can get my dress altered. The dress is about 4-6 inched to long, well if I'm bare foot.

Things I still need to accomplish: Still need to pick out flowers. I do know what I want, but I need to go see a florist. I also need to see a baker to book the day and tell them what I want. But again I do know what I want. I do still need to decide on music for the ceremony and reception, get my invitations, finalize the guest list, and find and purchase my shoes so that I can get my dress altered.

Other news: Tye and I finally got to chat on the web cam this week, which was great especially since we hadn't seen each other in about a month and a half. The deployment has been going well (on my end at least) as long as nothing else breaks we'll be great. I have been so busy with work, class, clinicals, and wedding planning that it is flying by. Before I know it, April 1st will be here and I'll be Mrs. Dodson! Sometimes I still cannot believe that I'm getting married.
