Dress Success???

Shocking! I actually found two dresses I liked on this morning’s bridal gown shopping trip. Since I seem to be the pickiest person in the world when it comes to wedding dresses, this was quite a victory.

With the help of my two friends, Laurel and Merri, I eliminated several gowns before stepping into two gorgeous dresses. They’re completely different, but both are very beautiful.

Obviously I cannot post pictures of the dresses that are contenders for “the one,” since I don’t want my groom-to-be to see them. Instead I hope you enjoy these pictures of dresses I will not be wearing on the big day. 🙂

I loved the back on this one:

Dress Attempt Number One

I am a lace lover and really liked the top of this dress. I couldn’t get past the bling-blingin’ broach though…

Bling, Bling

My friend Laurel really liked this one, but I had a hard time with the beading. I’m just not a beading kinda girl!

Dress Numero Tres


Why am I so weird about beading? I think dresses with beading look so pretty on the rack and in magazines, but when I put them on I feel like I look bedazzled.

Of these three dresses, which one would you pick?

I got a little excited to talk about wedding dresses, so let’s back up a bit to breakfast. 

Before the dress shopping business, I filled up on chocolate oats with cocoa powder and chocolate peanut butter cup  protein powder. YUM.

When I came home I had a quesadilla that went unphotographed. Oops!

I really wasn’t feeling the gym today, but Ryan was amped up and swindled me into a work out. I thanked him after it was over, of course. I did total-body weights and light cardio for 25 minutes. It wasn’t an amazing workout,but it was better than nothin’!

Our plans to attend a chili cook off are on hold at the moment due to icky weather. It’s really raining hard and is supposed to continue raining until 6 p.m. tonight. Boo!

At least the Miss America watch party is in doors. Don’t forget to root for Miss Florida! Yay Rachael! 😀
