Bike (Little) Dry Run and DRESSES!
Finally, what you’ve all been waiting for (Kelly): I went wedding dress shopping.
My mom, aunt, cousin, and I headed to Priscilla of Boston this morning. We might have found the one, but I won’t post it on here. So here are the ones that AREN’T contenders:
I liked this one at first, but after thinking about it more, I liked the other one better. So buh-bye!
This one I liked more than I thought I would the longer I had it on. I liked the top and the bottom, but not the middle so much.
This one looked better in person than in pictures, but still not that great. It hit in a weird spot.
The whole experience was kind of weird. Like I was excited (couldn’t sleep well last night), but when I tried them on, it didn’t feel weird. It wasn’t like “Oh my gosh, I have on a wedding dress!” It felt like pretty dresses that were white. I did put a veil on at some point, which made me look way more bridal.
My consultant was also GREAT! I didn’t feel pressured to buy today. I was also surprised at how the samples fit despite NOT being my size. They were 8’s, and I definitely wear a 14 (HOORAY FOR BOOBS AND BIG RIB CAGES). But just by clipping them back, it worked.
Also, in the pedestal area were a few other groups, so I got strangers’ opinions. They loved with my (not shown) choice. HA!
Afterward, we celebrated with lunch at Legal Seafoods.
Since it was an absolutely GORGEOUS day in Boston (80 degrees and sunny), Matt and I decided to break out the bikes and go for a ride.
It took us (two engineers) an hour to figure out how to get the new bike rack on my car. We made our way to the Minuteman trail, and tried to take off. WAIT! Our bike tires were flat. Probably something we should have checked before we left. I was sad:
I told Matt that it was a DRY RUN (little dry run was the street that my elementary school was on) for when we ACTUALLY go bike riding!
And on another totally random note: Our landlady has agreed to let us have a SMALL (Matt’s pushing for medium or big) dog! WOO HOO Now we can get a dog AND we don’t have to move!
