Belated Update and New Purchase

Seeing how it's Wednesday already (where did the week go??) I guess I should give a belated updated on my Labor Day Weekend.

Let's begin with Friday night which should have been relaxing and fun however it turned into me having to work from home until 8pm so that my client and I could finish up on an already overdue project. K was amazing though, he went out and bought me some Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and Chinese food so that at least I was able to eat and drink while all my papers were sprawled over the coffee table and I was typing furiously on my laptop. After I finished up my work stuff we opened one of the fortune cookies and it read "The job is well done". Now if that's not a sign I don't know what is.

Saturday we rented a boat at a nearby marina and went fishing for two hours...correction...he fished, I took a nap in the boat. Then we came home and watched my ECU Pirates kick some ass followed by his VA Tech Hokies not kicking so much ass :(

Sunday I had lunch with my old roommate Lauren. She came over to see our place for the first time then we went and ate at a nearby restaurant on the water. She caught me up on all the latest boy drama. I swear why are so many of the single men in their 20's and 30's in the DC area socially retarded douchebags??

Monday afternoon we went to his parents house to celebrate the end of summer with them as well as his sister and her three kids who were gearing up for the first day of school. Have I mentioned that I love my future in-laws? Because I do.

Now on to the fun stuff. I made another wedding related purchase yesterday thanks to Ebay. I should explain first, that on my wedding dress there is a section under the bust with some beading that is made to look like a brooch. I don't particularly like the beading because I think it looks cheap, however I love the IDEA of having a real brooch in it's place. So I've been on the hunt for something approach to replace the beading with and I think I found it:


Do you love it? Or do you love it? I'm so hoping it looks pretty in person and that it goes well with the dress. But if it doesn't oh well, after all I spent all of $10 on it. Yep $10! While I would love to be rocking the real diamonds this little ladies bank account will not allow for such fancy thoughts. I need to try to save as much money as I can in other areas so that our guests can like eat and stuff :)

I also ordered a potential engagement shoot dress online yesterday but I want to wait until I receive it and try it on before I post a picture of it just in case it ends up looking hideous on me.
