Here she is, actress extrordinaire, Brenda!
Brenda lives in LA with her fiance, Tim.
We met in college when I was sitting outside my room talking on the phone. My roomate was moving out, and Brendan was in a triple looking to move out. She asked if she could move in with me and I said yes! The rest is history.
Brenda is f-a-m-o-u-s, and has much bridesmaid experience. Here she is in the latest Gnarls Barkley Video (the waitress).
Love you Bda!
I love wearing dresses to work. So easy.
At Old Navy:
These two are on sale! Love the shirtdress.
And to finish us off:
Aug. 27 marks one year on my blog!
6,637 Blog Views!
And to think, I started with 21 Views in August of 2007. Today I have had 66.
This year I have: Painted my living room and kitchen, Replaced all the knobs in the house, put together 5 Ikea furniture items (grrr), bought a Roomba, gotten engaged, made an ice cream cake, started Grad school, taught summer school, attempted to work out regularly, and began planning my wedding.
Next I will: Learn how to make green curry, make an ice cream cake from scratch, place in the apple pie contest, graduate with a Masters Degree, get a new job, talk Brendan into getting a kitten, find a wedding dress, paint my bedroom, finally replace the vanities in the bathrooms, buy a pull-out couch for visitors, register for the wed, do various DIY projects, Get Married!
I hope you’ll be with me along the way. I couldn’t do it without you!
Oh, and only 401 days till my wedding!
At the beginning of the summer I planted basil and parsley, the basil has since passed but the parsley is still kicking. I have had a sad little pepper plant all summer who didn’t look as if she would make it.
Lo and behold:
Sorry about the quality, my camera is a piece.
My friend Amy came up this weekend (actually down, from Michigan) and we went to White Chicago. It was amazing. Unfortunately, we forgot my camera, but I found two dresses I really liked.
The staff was great, I would truly recommend going there. You have to take off your shoes, which is a little weird, but it is to protect the gowns, which are all “once-wed” or samples. You actually buy the dress you try on, there is no ordering.
We have settled on A-Line, sweetheart neckline, strapless. Everyone agrees that this is the most flattering on me. The problem is A-line can mean anything from Pouffy Frou Frou to a modified mermaid. Whatever the designer chooses.
The knot considers all of these A-Line.
I’m sure, the knot.
I’m not a pouffy girl, so I have a hard time finding dresses I like that don’t cling to my nether regions. Everyone says “You’ll know when you have it on”, but I have a hard time deciding.
So no decisions yet.
