So on Tuesday was the 4th of July, but that wasn’t the best part of my weekend. First of all, Mike’s brother Greg got married and Mike and I were in the wedding. I don’t have any pictures (yet) but I do have some pictures of what my hair looked like:
Here is a profile view… TONS of curls.
You can see my makeup here, too. I also had some poofy kind of hair going in the front. Jessica Alba’s 2006 VMA Red Carpet look was my inspiration.
So that was Saturday. It was really fun, but also really hot and exhausting. I’m just glad it’s over The next day Mike and I spent time with his family, since they’re all from out of town. On Sunday night my neice, Amber had a baby! His name is Gregory Charles, he’s 5 lbs 1 oz and 16 inches long. He’s a tiny little thing, but the doctors think he’ll be OK. Then on Monday Mike had to work, but I went to ANIME EXPO with Vanessa, Maz and his girlfriend, Amber. Ahhh! Unfortunately, I’m not as into manga and anime and I used to be when I first started going, but I still really look forward to AX every year. This was my 6th year going (since 2001! I haven’t missed a year) and while we were there we got to meet some people from a (now defunt) forum that Vanessa and I used to frequent back in 2001-2002. We’ve all kept in touch and to finally meet them after all this time was amazing. Shout out to Jake, Ryan, Ricky (who likes to be called Cid ), and Ian! Then that night Mike, Vanessa and I went and saw The Devil Wears Prada. It was good!
Then on Tuesday I cleaned my room and burned off some creative energy:
I recovered my bulletin board that I did in 6th grade. The tacs aren’t sticking in too well, but the anime/Disney pins at the bottom are doing just fine. I should have put less stars on the ribbons up top. There’s no room to stick anything in underneath the ribbon now x.x;; After Mike got off of work we went to his parents house and watched Last Holiday and fireworks. The movie was better. xD
Anyway, time for work, ttyl
One thing about upgrading WordPress I hate is that comments never seem to work after I’ve upgraded. that’s because for each theme you need to upload a new comments page. Well I knew all of this, I’m just a lazy sloth and never got around to it. So comments work now, you’re welcome! Now comment and tell me how much you missed me. Also I fixed smilies. It was a simple upload of my old vars.php.
So far this summer has been super busy. I have Greg’s wedding next weekend and all the prep that goes with that. I’ll be really happy when it’s over! Tomorrow is the bride’s Bachelorette party, but since I’m poor I won’t be going with them. They’re going to Disneyland, and with tickets at over $50, plus food, plus souveniers, I wouldn’t be surprised if it were over $100. I just can’t afford that right now unfortunately
Well, my neice’s baby shower is today, so I need to get off of my dead butt and clean up a little bit. Yes, my neice is having a baby. That will make me a great aunt at 21. Help!
Well, yesterday was an eventful bridesmaid day! I went to David’s Bridal and picked up the final version my dress, with all the alterations done and everything. By the way, it’s this dress (Style # 8660 in Apple). I’m SO glad that’s out of the way. The alterations I had to do on it cost the same as the dress itself, weep. My damned big ass.
After that, Teresa and I headed over to a little bridal shop pretty much a couple blocks away so I could try on some bridesmaid dresses (again). Teresa is letting her bridesmaids pick pretty much any dress they want, as long as it’s in the right color and material. The first time I went I thought I liked this dress (style #369 in Pomegranate), but when I went back again I realized that I didn’t really care for that dress at all because the detail at the waist was in a weird place and made my waist look… well, weird haha. When I went back I tried on this dress (style # A6242 in claret) and decided to go with that one. You can’t really tell in the picture but it’s just below the knee and has an option for straps, which I may go with, I haven’t decided yet. I’m really excited that I finally ordered the dress!! Hopefully Teresa’s other bridesmaids will get on the bandwagon now, hehe. The maid of honor is most likely getting this dress (style #442 in Pomegranate), one of the other maids is probably getting my first choice, and the last maid is probably getting a shorter length one like mine.
I really like how she’s letting us choose our own dresses. Since all of her bridesmaids live all over the country (one in San Francisco, one in Portland, one in Boston, and me in Orange County) it would have been too hard to order them all from the same store so we could all get our dresses from the same dye lot, so we might as well have different dresses, too. Plus this way we’ll all have the dress we like the best and feel the most comfortable in. I’ll probably do the same thing if I ever get married.
Only two weeks until Greg’s wedding and 5 months and 2 weeks until Teresa’s wedding! I can’t wait!
