Yes she did.
My oldest has been engaged for a month or so now and we have already checked out 3 potential venues, picked a caterer, a photographer, and a venue.
We've dined at the caterer's restaurant, discussed money over and over again, had a couple of arguments (including a big hang up fight), picked colors and changed colors and picked colors again three times
and we still have 11 months to go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This year is sure to be a whirlwind.
Anyone want to share some Zoloft?
However, she did say YES to the DRESS!
I was living my own reality TV show, minus the bitchy mother thing.
I was good.
My daughter showed the salesperson the 3 dresses she wanted to try on, (I added three more when Catherine turned her head) I said I was "good, not great" I just wanted this moment to last.
Catherine tried on all the dresses.
We oohed and ahhhed but there was one dress-- just like in the show-- and when she put it on we knew it was right.
I asked for the cathedral veil and the waterworks came in little sobs.
How can this be my crazy little girl? Looking like a bride, a real bride, (well her hair was a little messy and she did make a few funny faces), And her little sister, dressed in the bridesmaid's dressand standing beside her (all of eleven years old).
You can imagine that photo. Eleven is such a hard age, if you know what I mean: not a big girl yet and not a little girl anymore, stuck in the middle, in the shadow of the the most beautiful bride EVER :)
Your day will come my little princess!
The dress fit like a glove, smiles and tears all around, and surprise, surprise it was only the second most expensive dress in the place.
What a bargain, I must say.
I charged it right up and I held my breath for a minute hoping it would go through.
I need a job.
Real, real bad :)
