Dresses - Round 2

Well I downloaded Hello onto my uncle's PC here at the motel. Wow its really easy to download pics now yay - well on a pc anyway, hopefully Hello will come out with a version for macs!

The pic below is of the dress I put on hold last weekend. I'm not getting it as of yet, I still want to look around a lot more. I put a few more pics of it on my msn group so you can go there to view more if your a member :) If not, you can apply to join here but I have to know you before I will approve you ;)

Also got a new swim suit for like $20 yesterday! The "suggest retail price" was like $72!!! Got it at Sam's Club, which is a warehouse shopping center, similar to Costco's or BJ's if you're familiar with those.

Thats about it, not doing much, was working today. Need the $$$ so thats good.

Speaking of money, Pete did something very sweet. He asked his parents if we could get tickets for Romeo and Juliet for his birthday! :) We didn't know if we were going to be able to go otherwise because of the low finances being job-less and poor as we are hehe. So yay! I think he's going to call them up about when there are seats available this week :)

Guess what I did yesterday?! Hehehe.  Posted by Hello

A Month Cannot Pass Fast Enough!

Well the only good aspect of today is that a month from now, in about an hour, I will be boarding my lovely Virgin Atlantic Flight to London!!!! And a month from tomorrow I will see Pete at the airport (if immigration doesn't hold me hostage again.)

Weird thing for today: This morning I was driving to school, those who don't know I drive an hour each way for my summer classes. Well there I was, about 1/4 way through my nearly daily journey when I pass two police officers who were in front of a restraunt talking. They both looked at me as I passed them in my little '92 Toyota Tercel. So I checked my speed, wasn't speeding. I though "hmph that's strange!" So I keep driving, I saw them get into their car as soon as I passed so I knew I was going to get stopped. So the sirens come on, I pull over into the next parking lot. There are TWO cop cars kinda blocking me in. Ooookay. This really friendly police officer says good morning as he approaches, I say hi. He then looks in my car, and says...."Sorry, but when you passed I thought I saw a BABY IN YOUR LAP WHILE YOU WERE DRIVING. Sorry about that, have a good day. Drive safe." WTF ????!!!!!!! Very Bizarre!

Other than that today has been crap, enough said.

Dresses Galore!!

Wedding dresses that is! God, just two years ago I was with my dear and wonderful friends in high school going shopping for prom dresses, and in another two years I will be getting married!!!

It was a very exhausting day considering we only went to two bridal shops and I tried on a total of about 6 dresses I think. Getting into the dress and getting all the underwear on is hard work!

First I picked out a few dresses that were similar to one I saw and I liked in a magazine. (Maggie Sottero "Felicity.") But they just didn't fit me properly, I didn't feel like a bride in them. The last dress I tried on by chance in the first shop; my mom just picked it off the sales rack to let me try on something different. It was very traditional, reminded me of 4 Weddings and a Funeral and all the traditional wedding dresses you see, with the beaded bodice,chapel train I believe, and sleeves that were pretty short (kind of like cap sleeves but a bit longer - if that makes sense.) It fit me really well and was the most flattering from the first store. We put it on hold until next weekend (the longest they would hold it as it was on sale :( )

We found another shop and I tried on two dresses in there. The first was nice but didn't fit properly and the straps on it were a bit dodgy (I don't think it originally had straps and they just had just sewn them on, they were very thin spaghetti straps. The second was very WOW. Silver and white. The bodice was all silver beading with sleeves that were close between thick beaded straps and cap sleeves. The skirt was very poofy - I think it was tulle (sp?) with silver embroidery all through it and the hem of it was silver beading in a similar pattern to the neckline. The neckline was kind of a sweetheart neckline (which was similar to the good fitting one in the other store.) I liked it, felt very glamourous, but it might have been a bit too much for me.

I'm really exhausted. Couldn't take any pictures, I brought my digital camera but the batteries in it were dead, even though I thought they were charged!! ARGH.

Going back to try on the dress from the first shop next weekend so will take pics of it then, even though I probably won't get it. I don't want to get something too soon and then change my mind completely!!

Life is a Highway...

For the past two weeks and two days I have been driving an hour each way to college. I like driving, there's no thinking involved. My little gray/silver colored 1992 Toyota Tercel just moves along, avoiding road kill and colliding with yellow school buses. Got out of class early today, feel sleepy, want coffee but too lazy to get it lol. Such is my life. Random quizzes:

What Color is Your Brain?

brought to you by Quizilla

Got this from Jennie's. I really don't think it represents me completely but I took it twice so I guess I will accept it lol.

Birthday Stuff

I realized I forgot to tell you what I received for my birthday!

Well Pete got me this very nice top from FCUK - tease cami. He got it in "raven" as on our comps it looked black, but it turned out to be a dark grey color. It's still very lovely, he has very good taste for dressing me! That being said he also got me this t-shirt from FCUK - Penalty Spot LOL. I have yet to pluck of the courage to wear it around here, as I think it's more of a English humor thing and people might think I'm a slut if I wear it here LOL. He also got me Love Actually on DVD ;) I LOVE that movie to death!!! And a lovely Me-to-You bear Fiancee card ;) (Thanks again baby!)

My parents already got me my new (used - but in great condition) lovely Powerbook G4. My dad also sneakily put $100 in my bank account and told me not to tell my mom!!! ;) I love my daddy lol.

My sister and her hubby got me some new Nike trainers/sneakers (I don't remeber the actual name so I can't link to them) and a yellow top from the GAP (which I can't find on their site.)

My uncle and his gf, who was very rude at the birthday/mother's day party, are going to get me a new battery for my computer, eventually.

I got a very nice card from my cousin Jessica, and from my friend Becca who I haven't seen in person in AGES. Also I got lovely ecards from my cuz and Gem (thanks!)

Plus money from my great Aunt and my Grandma. Which reminds me, I have to deposit her check today!

My friend Sara got me a very cool wooden wind chime and a cute glass smiley face candle holder thing, that holds a tea light and the light from the candle reflects onto the glass making the smile glow :) Thanks!

All in all a very nice birthday, and I'm happy to finally be 20!

New Template

Since blogger messed up my old one I thought I'd try a new one :) I really like it, it's simple. Not sure how much crap I will be adding to it to make more complex.

I have to work on my Graphic Design projects so I shouldn't try to add to the template now. I'll add my comments back though so everyone can say how much they like the new template ;)


Something happened to my template :( It suddenly decided to delete like half of the contents of the right menu :(

I don't suppose there is anything I can do to fix it - maybe it'll reappear ?????

Long time

Wow I haven't blogged properly in a long time !

Some exciting stuff that has been happening in my life: my great Aunt, who is also my godmother has offered to pay for my wedding dress!!!!! Which is a pretty big deal! I have yet to try any on though so hopefully will be able to do that soon.

Also I got my grades from last semester in school back yesterday in the mail! I got.... 4 A's and a B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I thought I totally slacked off!!!

Also tomorrow is my BIRTHDAY for anyone who doesn't know. I'm staying over my sister's tonight to babysit my niece and nephew, and then she's having a party for me at her house tomorrow. I have yet to get my birthday package from Pete :( Argh. I almost never get anything from him on time for anything so its not like I'm not use to it, but it sucks!

Other than that not much is going on, summer classes are going okay. I only have 2 but I have a 5 hour break in between them so that makes the day drag on since its an hour away from my house.

Finished "Jemima J." It was pretty good. I am now reading "Farm Fatale" by Wendy Holden which I have yet to put up on the right side.

Have a good weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all Moms!!
