Off again


Well, today is my last day of work at Petco. I have to say, I am actually really sad. I met some really cool people there and enjoyed doing the job- a hobby that i have anyway. I will definitely miss it and (just about) everyone there.

So, Tuesday I am off to England to begin my part in the wedding plans... thus far Luke has done just about everything... he has booked a venue, some entertainment, tuxes, etc. I basically have to show up and get a photographer (something I insisted on picking) choose the menu, and various little things like table settings and cakes... as you can tell Im fairly nonchalant about these things... as far as Im concerned I thought I was going to be going into the town hall and signing a piece of paper, and lo and behold my entire family wants to fly over and come too... so its turned into something a bit bigger. But thats ok, i just wish i was there for the planning of it! The date is November 17th... less than 6 weeks.

Oh yeah, and i dont think i mentioned this but its pretty cool; Luke's mom is a professional wedding dress maker and I can have any dres I want in the entire world! So anyway, I went to this boutique in Westport, CT to try on dresses to get an idea, and there was a Trunk show by this designer Anne Barge.. i thought the dresses were a little too foofy (is that a word?) for me but i tried one of them on anyway, and fell in love with it. It fit like a glove. It was fun to move in (felt like walking through a snow drift) and it looked effing hot. This is what it looks like in case anyone's curious. So, because its a trunk show, that means that those dresses were straight from the runway, and get travelled around to different stores for people to see... so its probably that the dress I tried on is the EXACT dress from that picture. I think thats pretty cool because i felt like a model. :) And so what if its a $4000 dress?!?!? I have my own seamstress to create it for me! Muahaha.

So, it might be a while before i get to blog, with packing and travelling over the next week, but I will give the update when I get over The Pond. In the mean time, take care and farewell, CT... again. Posted by Picasa

The dress is gorgeous :) Glad to see you have good taste..

Good luck with your journey. I can't believe I'll be holding a baby by the time you'll be married!!

Lots of changes coming in the next 2 months, huh?
