My wedding dress is in.
I’m not sure what this means exactly, or where it was before it was “in.” But it’s in Chicago now. I know this because a very excited man called me yesterday from the boutique where I got it and delivered the news.
He said, “Taylor, I just wanted to let you know that …. YOUR WEDDING DRESS IS IN!”
And as he waited for me to squeal, or faint, or do whatever it is that he’s apparently used to hearing as a response to this specific phone call, I suddenly felt like Miranda Hobbes when the doctor tells her she’s having a boy and she has to fake her sonogram reaction. “A boy? Oh boy.”
All that I said was, “great. okay.“
Don’t get me wrong, I love my dress. I’m excited to wear it six months down the road. But, that’s six months down the road. I’ve got other shit to tackle right now.
I knew I let the man down with my dull reaction and I felt bad. So right before I got off the phone with him I added, “thanks for this call, I’m so excited about this. Really exciting stuff.” And we both knew I was kinda faking the enthusiasm and it got a little awkward.
So that’s where I’m at right now. The dress is in. And I guess that means alterations have to happen or something? So I should probably start working out again and stop eating so much pizza. Ugh.
I’m having major fat kid probs right now. Last night my bottom lip started gushing blood because my spoon full of ice cream froze to it and I ripped it off anxious to get that damn bite in my mouth. I cut my lip open because I couldn’t wait two seconds to eat my ice cream. That’s when you know you have a problem…
The only thing keeping me going is dreaming about our honeymoon. I think about it all the time. We have nothing planned, but both have our own ideas of how it should go. Chris wants to go on an adventure and explore and learn about new things in museums because he’s into that kind of stuff. But I just want to relax. Where did you go? What do you suggest?
Also, Honeymoon Vibes shirt found here. Buy it for everyone you know getting married. Harlow and I thank you. 2016 is exciting and wonderful and slightly expensive.
