I'm Still Alive!



Hello dear readers! I'm sorry these last two weeks have been fairly quiet. I been meaning to post many things but I find as Spring draws closer my schedule gets busier!
I'm very excited to share a book review with all of you very soon. The book I'll be sharing is one that I found for only 99 cents at a thrift shop this past week and I've received so much enjoyment out of reading it. So stay tuned for that!

I've also been wanting so share what I'm looking forward to at the end of April. My dear childhood friend Miss Amanda has asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding! I'm so excited to celebrate her special day with her! I have spend some of my time over the last month working on getting my dress, shoes and other things for the wedding ready.

This is the style and color dress I'm going to be wearing (photo at left). It's a Cornflower blue color and will have a sash and peek-a-boo slip in this lovely Watermelon pink color (in photo at right). Because I'm shorter the dress comes well below my knees and then with the slip it's even longer. I really like the clean lines and the colors together are lovely.

These are the shoes I'm looking at. My friend told me white and these are similar to the other girl's style shoes. I like that they are low thick heels because I can be terribly clumsy.

I've never been in a wedding before and I'm very excited. It's also been a while since I've seen my friend because we live in different states.
My family and I are really looking forward to this as a mini vacation April 28th -May 1st. Can't wait!


So what have all of you been up to lately?

Do you have flowers or snow where you live? My state just got hit with some crazy snow storms - just when I was hoping for some green!

Very Truly Your's,

The snow finally stopped by me, but it's still been cold... I could really use some spring about now. :-)

It's autumn here in Australia and it is freezing! Last night we even started our wood fire!

YAY!!
I was in my sister's wedding last year, and the week of the wedding was a blast.

Please post a picture of you in your dress! Where did you get it by the way? I got my bridsmaid dress from totallymodest.com, but I was hoping to find a modest dress from a store withing driving distance for college formals.

Anonymous,
I had to choose a dress from David's Bridal because they had the colors the bride wants. Also it was easier because most of her wedding party are from different parts of the US. I wish I could have bought at totallymodest.com because it would have been more comfortable for me as David's Bridal doesn't really have very many modest dresses. The dress I chose is the probably the most modest I found, it's very high in the front and is open a bit in the back but only to just below my shoulder blades. I wish it had sleeves because I'm not used to having my shoulders showing but it's okay and I have a shawl to wear at the reception. I probably will post photos.
