My dress is in!
I was hoping when we planned our trip back to the homesteads that it would somehow magically coincide with my dress's arrival and it TOTALLY WORKED! All my crazy wishes are now justified and going to come true, I just know it (so I look forward to Jesse Thorne attending my wedding).
One funny thing though--when I called to make the appointment for my fitting, the call ended with the woman saying "Don't forget to bring your shoooooes!" in the exact same words, tone, and inflection my mother uses every time we have talked about my fitting.
