This Grateful Season – Dress Shopping Progress

November 10, 2011

It’s late and I almost forgot to blog, so I’ll make this short and sweet. Due to some info from a friend I’ve made on Twitter (who I’ve met in real life before) I’ve made some progress on wedding dress shopping. THANK GOD. Specifically, a list of boutiques that may actual sell dresses within my budget (under $1000).

This is all in preparation for my parents’ Thanksgiving trip to LA in which we will be going dress shopping. I’m calling it “The Epic Holiday Weekend Dress Hunt” or something to that effect. As if my life can’t get more stressful around this whole “wedding” thing.

ANYWAYS – So grateful for finding not one, not two, but eleven potential stores within 25miles of my apt that I can hopefully book 2-4 appts at, on top of the store I already tried back in September and liked a lot. The pressure is not to find a dress as much as it’s to make their trip productive. More on things as they unfold, but for now, I at least have information to work with, which puts me way ahead of where I was yesterday.

PS – Extra grateful for the fiancé who encouraged me to blog from bed and not break my streak 🙂

PPS – This blog is going up 10hrs late b/c WordPress accidentally flagged my blog and shut it down last night. *lame* I’m still counting it as on time though 🙂

**For the month of November, I’m posting something each day that I’m grateful for. It may be as long as an intricate post, as short as a quote, as simple as a link or as wordless as a photograph. A friend has come on board. Join us? #gratefulseason

    Yay dress shopping! Yay being productive! Yay being on time! 😉

    Good luck with the dress shopping/parent Thanksgiving time and should you need an escape, I’ll probably be stuck on my couch/in my bed for the majority of the week.
