Finding THE Dress

I'm heading home today to take care of some wedding planning and more importantly... go dress shopping!! The big shopping day is Friday, and  

I have done some research to gather some tips for this day. Here's what I have so far:

  • Don't bring too many people with you. You don't want too many opinions. 
  • Trust your instincts. No one should have to convince you that the dress looks great on you. If you don't feel amazing in it, don't get it.
  • Be open-minded. Don't eliminate a certain style of dress before trying it on. 
  • Do not wear a thong, and do shave your legs.  A stylist at the salon will be helping you get it and out of the dresses. This requires no further explanation. 
So now I turn to you, my lovely friends. I know many of you have been through this process before, so what tips, do's, and don'ts do you have for me? I'm anxious to hear, and even more anxious to share the final dress pick with you! It will be at least 10 months from now, but I promise to share it when I can :)

This little tike is just gorgeous. And let's be honest, that makes my job pretty easy.  These are from a couple of months ago, but I have a lot of pictures to catch you all up on! Bear with me here :)

Three Resolutions for 2013


My New Year's resolution for 2012 was to run a half marathon. I FAILED SO MISERABLY. I mean, I didn't even come close. Remember {this} post where I gave up on running? Yeah, that's where things went downhill.  So this year, I have three resolutions, which I am (at this moment) thinking are more attainable.  Only time will tell whether or not they actually are...

1. Blog at least 2x a week.  A while back, I vowed to blog 3 times a week. I think it's safe to say I fell short on that commitment.  So, hopefully 2 times will be a more realistic goal for me.

2. Work out 10x a month.  If there's ever a year to make the cliche fitness resolution, it's the year you're getting married.  Luckily for me, a new Pure Barre studio opened up just blocks from my apartment.  And even more luckily, I purchased every discounted deal that I could. So, I'm set with unlimited classes through May! (Side note: I'm 5/10 for January already. Pats on the back are welcome.)

3. Send birthday cards to friends and family ON TIME. I never have a problem with sending birthday cards to my family. I do, on the other hand, have a huge problem with sending them on time.  It's really just a matter of planning and getting them in the mail a few days before their birthdays instead of the day of...  I have been a huge slacker in sending birthday cards to my friends.  So, I've already marked everyone's birthday in my planner, and written myself reminders to buy cards the week prior to their birthdays. Hopefully this will help!

So, there you have it.  My three attainable (and measurable!) resolutions.  What are your resolutions for 2013?
