Prom 2000: My mom made me this dress. I wish I had a picture of the back; horizontal strings of pearls held the dress together with my back peeking in between each string. It was amazing!
Here's me and the seamstress, my mom!
My custom wedding gown, made from my mom's wedding gown. Pictured with the bestie.
Me and the seamstress, Janet Brunton.
I guess I'm made for white dresses too. :-)

but what i really want to show you are all toilet paper/trash bag gowns that were created during these showers!
starting with my bridal shower:
For all the showers I attended, my team won the toilet paper/trash bag dresses. Lucky or stylish? Maybe both!
The Grecian Bride
The 80s Bride
The Scary Bride
The Groom. That's my aunt in there...such a good sport. It was a great laugh!
Then there was my friend (and talented wedding coordinator), Linda Ly's (of Grand Soirees) baby shower.
The theme was the Great Gatsby. How awesome looking are mom and dad?
We made maternity dresses out of trash bags!
Then there was my friend's bridal shower after that:
More toilet paper wedding dresses. How awesome is that flower?? I made it!!!
The bride is the one in white.
And then the most recent bridal shower:
I put the sweetheart top together!
she says good-bye to the wedding world.
i hope she picks up blogging again upon a different journey.
thank you, tto, for taking us along for the ride! hope to read you again in the future! the best to you and your hubs!
I haven't done our Thank You cards, and I haven't picked out our pictures for our wedding album, therefore, we haven't gotten our pictures yet.
Just ordered holiday cards though, so I'm gonna send out our Thank Yous with those suckas.
Happy Holidays, everyone! And Happy Shopping!
And so sorry for lack of posting. I've been having trouble posting pix via blogger, so I've been doing it manually. Boo!

Can you take a guess at who we are?
Friday night: Kanye jacking Taylor Swift's thunder at 2009 MTV VMAs.
Saturday night: And here we are as Princess Toadstool and Luigi from Super Mario Bros.
We had so much fun dressing up. We're already trying to figure out what we're going to be next year. =) Hope you all had a safe weekend. Can you believe it's November?!

2. sneak around to try on your wedding gown to see if it still fits. check. check.

4. ask friends to share their pictures from your wedding. need more checks!
5. when choosing pictures for your wedding album, look at every single picture your photographer(s) took in detail. in progress.
6. continue chatting on the wedding board forums (i go to TheKnot.com forums!) to help out new brides. check.
7. take day-after pictures. check!

how can you not expect life to be so grand as your wedding day? it's hard. and i'm dealing. HBO's True Blood is helping. As well as getting into new hobbies such as tweeting, sewing and knitting, and old hobbies like reading and blogging. Oh, and joining a rec soft ball team with hubby, Team Wii Not Fit, has been super fun too!
sorry for lack of posting...it's hard to blog. i really admire those who are avid bloggers!

love her first outfit! i'm going to jack hub's black dress shirt and wear a belt around it. short black skirt. my OTK boots. yes! ready for a night out!
i'm also just obsessed with her crazy good dance moves. i have been watching this video over and over trying to get something down.
and that gold body suit just blows my mind away!
so i'm going to backtrack...to our honeymoon, well, minimoon more like it. we opted to stay local and save some money. we did just make the biggest expense we have ever made together, and we thought it was the right way to start our official life together.
so after the wedding, we headed down to Torrey Pines (famous for its golf courses; the U.S. Open was there last year) in La Jolla. we stayed at the Hilton Torrey Pines using our Hilton points! score! we ate at some highly recommended restaurants. hiked down to the beach through the Torrey Pines State Park. and just relaxed and enjoyed each other's company.
us at George's at the Cove; actually we were at the Bistro part of the restaurant, which sat on a cliff overlooking the ocean.
a short walk from our hotel was the Torrey Pines State Park.
dee climbing up the cliff...
just kidding...no cliff.
on our way to the bottom
self shot. skills! we're almost at the bottom.
made it! now we have to go back up...
us at Sushi Ota. we had our first "Omakase." we've tried other restaurants, ordering Omakase, and Sushi Ota has been, by far, superior! i don't remember what any of the dishes were called, but here's what they looked like:
that half-of-a-shrimp was still squirming and moving around while on my plate!!
after we finished this dish, the waitors asked how we wanted our shrimp head cooked. we asked for deep-fried (i wanted baked, but we heard deep-fried was the way to go).
thanks for continuing to read! also... TTO has started posting pictures of her amazing wedding!!! check it out!
