First of all, I want to thank everyone for their well wishes on my 2 year anniversary. It really made me very happy to have all the well wishes. These are the lovely roses my hubby came home with.
I was able to finish my dress in time and for once I was very happy with the way it turned out. I do need to take in the straps a little but nothing major. I wanted to make a matching bolero ( and may still try) but I just didn't want to rush myself. This is a really great silky brocade. It's got a cream background with hints of pink gold and green. I noticed I look a lot better in off white/ cream colors than in white. White makes me look sallow.
I did learn that it's best to have Jess takes photos of me before he gets too hungrey and distracted by the internet. He completely cut off my bangs. I wish he had taken a full body shot but I'll just have to start using the tripod and timer.
We went to dinner at live Garden and had a great meal and dessert. We very rarely have dessert when we go out but decided to go wild and olrder a raspberry cheesecake which was very good.
Now that I've gotten my dress done, I've been working on making my mom her birthday present. I made her a small capelet, a matching hat and scarf set. I may take her to the Thunder from Down Under. Jesse agrees that she needs a little excitement in her life now that she's divorced. I actually talked to Jess about how I felt that by me going to this review I felt he would want to go to a strip show. He said no. He realizes it just a show and it's not like I'm going to be getting a lap dance or anything. That made me feel a lot better. I often have a hard time communicating my feelings and it takes A LOT of me to be up front and honest when it comes to my feelings. I'm so glad he is patient and understanding.
So. We've been planning what we're going to do on our trip to Vegas. I keep asking my mom what she wants to do but all she says is "As long s we're all together and having fun whatever you want to do it fine with me." My mom. All she ever wants is to spend time with us. She has always just ewanted to have us spend time together. I did find out she wants to go to some thrift stores, a huge swap meet (it's has over 1,150 vendors) and go shopping in general. I will try to take photos lots of photos and have fun. A great thing about Jess is that he gets along splendidly with my siblings so if he has to babysit a couple of teeneagers he can handle it.
I dont know what the weather is going to be like in Vegas the weekend we're there so I really don't want to start packing yet. I'm sure I'll over-pack (like always) and Jess will just take his backpack. I rather over-pack that forget something. I've been learning to make checklists before we go on any type of trip. It's helped is a lot.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. And here's a cute but blurry photo of Ridley. He won't stay still for this one but it's cute nonetheless.
