Bridesmaid Dresses: Check!

We went shopping for bridesmaid dresses today, and it was so unbelievably easy!  I had picked out the dress already, and was hoping that all the girls would like it and that we'd be in and out quickly.  Boy were we in and out quickly!  I think it took about 7 minutes once we got inside and were actually by the dressing rooms.  All 4 girls liked it, and that was it!

I was actually kind of shocked, and I think I said about 40 times how fast it was.  But, it was certainly a good thing.  Now I have that checked off the list.  The girls are picking out their own shoes as long as it's a silver/gray color, preferably a strappy sandal, so that's easy too.  Hair is the same - I wouldn't want to tell them a certain way to do their hair.  It just doesn't work because everyone's hair is different.  Now I just need to come up with some jewelry for them...

I gave them all a little gift as a thank you for being a bridesmaid: wine!  Who doesn't love wine?  And it goes with the "wine theme" of our wedding.

My gifts for my bridesmaids.
Each girl got a wine bottle tote bag with a different region where wine is made, and I bought bottles of wine from each place.  I actually got the wine to match even more perfectly than I expected!  I was super excited about these gifts - I love love love giving fun gifts to people!!

Tomorrow is Halloween, which really doesn't mean all that much to me.  I can't give my students candy if I wanted to because I'm being pulled out of class for 4 out of 5 periods to do benchmark data review.  It will be fascinating I'm sure.  The good thing about this is that it breaks up the week and it's one less day of dealing with 5th period.  

Then it's November.  Busy busy times coming up!  I need Thanksgiving week so I can get caught up on some sleep.  Three weeks to go...hope I make it!


  1. Don't forget about Veteran's Day next Friday! :)

  2. Oh I didn't forget! But that's just a little preview of the wonderfulness that is to come!!
