I heard it through the grapevine

UGH these pictures are all horrible, mostly because of my face. I look like I am afraid or confused or both. This is the dress I bought & wore for our weddings shower last Saturday, and for drinks at the local hole-in-the-wall bar, Sneakers, in Ferndale. I kind-of look like a grape, but I don’t mind as I really like this dress. Why my face could not cooperate on this day, I will never know.

I still cannot fathom that in 6.5 weeks I will be getting married, time is just flying! SOMEONE TELL IT TO STOP! We don’t have too much left to really do, pick up a few things for Kyle, figure out the caterer & the florist, and then a few decorating projects that I have started on. Our 11 year anniversary is this week (Sideburns & Bangs have been together how long??), and we also have to factor in a birthday party, and a group trip to the Michigan renaissance festival. Not to mention the bachelor & bachelorette parties, woot woot! Believe me, I am really looking forward to that, hehehe.

    Your face is fine in the photos! Well the second photo you do look confused but the others it's all good.

  20. 1st. The first thing I notice is that you looked confused in some of these shots so it made me giggle a little when I read that you thought the same. Although I think its mildly endearing.

    2nd. Holy poop! That's so exciting, time does fly by wowzers!

    3rd. I love CCR. And I LOVE that song! I've heard many renditions of it, but theirs is by far my favorite.

    4th. I think this color is darling on you, and I want to kick your butt and steal those shoes.
