thankful for the weekend

snakes on a plane is definitely a must-see. it is the best movie of the summer by far. we had a great time thursday night, mainly because of the people who crowded into the theater with us. as soon as the title came on the screen they started cheering, and throughout the beginning of the movie they would hiss and chant “snakes! snakes!” there were more cheers when a shot of the snake cage with its timer counting down to release was shown, and when it came on screen with five minutes to go we all counted along. “five…four…three…two…one…SNAKES!” it was the first movie where i’ve been shocked at the gory scenes yet laughing at the same time. i must admit, though, it is making me a little more nervous about flying to boston. hehe. joe says if they tell us first class is closed we’ll wait for the next plane. 🙂

my dress is safely at the alterations shop. thanks to my wonderful friend and bridesmaid, shannon, i found a backup woman to take it to, which is good because yesterday was the only day i had to get up to chattanooga. all she has to do is take it in at the sides up top, and she was able to find a way to do that without having to deal with the beadwork. and the best part? it fit better than it did when i bought it. i didn’t have to struggle to zip it up, and my stomach fat didn’t show as it had when i tried it on all summer. and the best part is that she is only charging me $20, which is $140 less than what it would have cost at david’s bridal. yay!

i headed to old navy to pick up flip flops, but since i was feeling so good about myself, i decided to try on some clothes, too. the skirts i ended up buying were a size smaller than i’d been wearing, and the shirt i purchased was a medium rather than a large! woo hoo.

my hairstylist and i settled on a style for the wedding. i didn’t know if i liked it at first, but the more i looked at it, saw it with my veil, and pictured it with my dress, the more i liked it. only 15 days to go!!

    Sounds like the movie was a lot of fun. Just goes to show you what hyping up a movie beforehand can do. The PR company responsible is genius.

    OMG I can’t believe your big day is coming up so quickly. How exciting! Ah, I remember when you were just dating! 🙂 {Good times}
