How I got the dress. It's a fantastic story! I looked and looked and it was coming on 6 months away from the wedding and I didn't have a dress and I knew I'd need some alterations and I wanted to make sure to have it before the day of! We couldn't find a dress I even kinda liked. My mom's friend said that she was engaged and had to cancel the wedding, for something unkown, and won't wear the dress and she only wore it once. And that was to try it on at the store. She let me see it and we loved it! I love it more and more when I think about it or look at it. It's exciting! I really feel that the Lord has helped me out with the wedding so much. I know that this dress is a wonderful answer to prayers, so I can't complain!
But.. I do complain. I'm scared! She, the alteration lady, is ripping out the back! Now my mother reassured me that she's wonderful at this and won't mess up.. me.. UGH! I'm scared. lol. So I wasn't the more polite person to anyone. Also.. my mom said that I didn't seem happy to get married at all. I'm not happy with anything... So I thought about that. I really thought that even though there are tons of drama with the BMs and things I was still positive.
My goal... be more positive and pray. Alot. Things will go great and if not.. my supermommy and I can fix it.

The day is set for December 12th and we'll start out in the late afternoon at a house doing the slumber party. Theresa assured me that this will be one of the best times ever. My girls can buy novelty items, penis cake pan (to make a cake, which I want lol) and other excited things, for the party itself and me at cost to her! Which is way cheaper than buying anything here in town. So I'm sure we're in for a GREAT time. =) Next, we'll all go to a local comedy club for some more great fun! We'll party there for an hour or so and then my family, BMs, and a few good friends will head back to 2 hotel rooms and finish the night!
I'm more excited about the wedding festivities than ever!
On a bad note... I've had to drop one of my BMs. I'm down to 5 and I'm keeping them that way. No more bringing in drama. These 5 are the best and now I don't have to worry about what's going on and if something bad will happen. I know these lovely ladies will support me.

Hopefully Callie, my MOH, can have her make my bridal shower cake!
Also we're having a cash bar. I thought that would be 'tacky', but talking to the people at the company they said a lot of people are doing cash bars now days. So, I felt better. It's not really that expensive overall.
I can't think of anything else at the reception I can inform ya'll on yet. =)
At night you can see the Keeper of the Plains all lit up and pretty! Hopefully it will sprinkle with snow a little.
We're having the Photobooth Company come in and do that for some favors!I got this from the website. We can personalize the border! It's sentimental for Grant and I since everytime we see a photobooth I insist that we take pictures. It's fun! You can fit up to 8 people in there and they get the copy and we get ALL the photos taken that night on a disk.
Another favor we're doing is Mexican Wedding Cookies.
1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and water. Add the flour and almonds, mix until blended. Cover and chill for 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Shape dough into balls or crescents. Place on an unprepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from pan to cool on wire racks. When cookies are cool, roll in confectioners' sugar. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
I'll add more on this later, just so I can get a nap in before class.
