A Dress, Some Awards &
a Month-iversary +

Last night the dress for my sister's wedding arrived.  So I went with her to pick it up.  I was so excited about the dress especially with the way it fit when I tried the store sample on a couple weeks ago....OK just checked and that was a couple months ago (November 17th-ish).  So I was thinking the store sample would be a little stretched out so it will probably be a tad tight. WRONG.  It's a lot to big.  BUT I love the color and I won't have to get it hemmed because my shoes are just tall enough =) Hooray! I will have to have it taken in...probably.  I'm going to hold off until June to get it altered....you know, just in case =)
Looks big right?
This is how much too big =(
Me Faking like it fits =)
My shoes -- I need to repaint my toes but can't find the motivation since I can't wear cute open toes in this cold -- don't judge =)
I feel pretty in this dress and J LOVES it so I'm happy =)

Recently, I was honored with TWO awards::
Erica over at Young and Fabulous awarded me with the above award!  awwww!! what a sweet girl!!  I have to tell you 7 things about myself.
{1} I sing -- all the time.  when I catch myself singing to myself I am reminded of that HIMYM (How I Met Your Mother) episode where they point out everyone's obnoxious habits and Marshall's is that he sings everything. =) I'm not THAT bad...yet haha
{2} I like to take showers early in the morning and then crawl back in bed and sleep for another hour. 
{3}I have never seen the movie Christmas Vacation
{4} The Husband and I are going to buy one of these (below) when we move. 
We like to snuggle up really close on our current couch and a 2 person recliner would be just divine!
{5} We didn't have a 'professional' photographer at our wedding.  They were family friends with photography experience who provided the 'service' for the day as our wedding present =)
{6} I wear heels every day -- I love wearing heels.  It does great things for my posture and my butt
{7} I LOVE sushi -- I could eat it every day...maybe I can talk The Husband into a date tonight!!

My second award came from Lady Fromage.  And I have to list 5 guilty pleasures and pass this award onto ONLY 3 =/
{1} Shoes -- anyone who knows me know this isn't a secret!
{2} Rice Krispie Treats -- OMGsh I could eat (and have) a whole pan on my own!!!
{3} Purses -- not like my shoe addiction because I can't rationalize another purse haha. BUT I do love purses. This is shocking to my mother because up until I was in my second year in college I just stuck it all in my pockets haha and NEVER carried a purse EVER.
{4} New Undies -- if I could, I would never wear a pair more than once. I just love when they are BRAND new, unfaded and unworn -- it's a little weird, right?
{5} Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich -- I try not to eat them often but sometimes I HAVE to give in!! I LOVE them!

My three picks:
Skip to My Lou

Alright -- one last MAJOR thing of the day -- It's the 13th.  This means it's our Month-iversary!! 10 MONTHS of being married to my husband!! I can't believe it's been almost a year already!!!
Happy Almost Friday everyone!!

I just found your blog. Love it, I just recently got into the whole sewing/crafting scene and you've got some really great stuff! Looking forward to more =)

Side note: I thought (more my boyfriend thought) that I was the only crazy one that talked about and called them "Month-iversary". Happy one to you and your hubby!!!! Another side note: Our 40th monthiversary is today as well =)

You so need to see Christmas vacation! You are missing out! And my grandma always said it was ok to spend money on a good purse! She'd actually pay full price for those! The dress is pretty!
