Day Two Hundred & Sixty. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Sixty. - Car Accident. - This is probably one of the most traumatic days I've had. A lady rear ended me as I was coming home from work and to make matters worse I was driving by myself. The most scary part was that after hearing the crash it took a few minutes to sink it that I was the one that had been hit. To make things even more devastating it happened so close to the wedding as if I didn't have enough going on. Now I have to deal with insurance companies and getting my car repaired.

Day Two Hundred & Fifty-Five. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Fifty-Five. Bridal Shower Gifts. - This is probably my favorite gift of all the ones that we've gotten so far. Not only is it my favorite color, one of them, but it's girly and I love girly things. These are Bath Salts and Bubbles. They are much too pretty for me to ever use, another reason I love them, but they go great in my guest bathroom along with my set of towels!

Day Two Hundred & Fifty-Four. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Fifty-Four. - Wedding Leaves. - Instead of having the traditional roses on the aisle runner we will be having these placed on the runner. Since we aren't having a flower girl someone in my wedding party will have to put them on before I make my grand entrance. I think they fit perfectly into my Fall them as well!

Day Two Hundred & Fifty-Two. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Fifty-Two. - Soccer Match. - We were invited by some friends, Gabe and Emily, to attend their second soccer game. They both play on the team together, I have no idea how they do it, and a lot of his family plays with them as well. I think they are a really great time and I was pretty dissapointed when they lost this time. Although they did win their last one and hopefully will begin to win more games!

Day Two Hundred & Fifty. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Fifty. - Housewife Sayings. - We went to visit a old friend of the family, to get my alterations done, and she had this in her kitchen and I just had to snap a photo. I guess you could say I'm having a great life since my house is always a complete disaster!

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Nine. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Nine. - BirdCage Veils. - My veil finally arrived today! I was so excited to see a little package sitting on our front porch when I got home from work. It's not your normal veil, though, it's a birdcage on. These just go over your face but I think they are so adorable! I added little pearls on them as an accent and though I could have probably made this myself for cheaper I really don't have the time or patience for that matter. I can't wait to see how it looks with my dress on the day of!

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Eight. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Eight. - Centerpiece Ideas. - The way I want my centerpieces have changed a least a dozen times but I found this really cute fall themed wreath to go around the bottom of the glass bowls and now my mission is to find a glass bowl to go with it. The only thing I haven't decided is what to put in the glass bowls. I'm thinking a floating candle or something along those lines. Hopefully I'll get my act together and make a decision pretty quickly since time is running out!

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Seven. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Seven. - Make-Up Trial. - Please don't mind my hair it's unruly these days. Anyway, I had my makeup trial today and I am so impressed! The girl was so nice and I loved that she had a toolbelt full of brushes and applicators. We decided to do a smokey purple/violet eye with a muted lip. I really wanted to play up my eyes since I think they are my best feature and she did a great job doing so! I also loved that the makeup stayed on all day, even the foundation, too. I'm so excited to have her do my makeup for the wedding! Gee, I wish I could afford MAC products there much better then anything I've ever used!

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Six. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Six. - Zune. - William's new obession is music players and so we stopped at three different stores to find the new IPOD but no one had it, which is what he really had his heart set on, but we come across of the Zune and he fell in love. I think they are pretty cute, too, especially since they have a pink one!

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Five. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Five. - Wedding Flowers. - I finally found a girl to put all my bouquets and bouts for me, a girl from work, so we went to Hobby Lobby and found all their flowers on sale! I ended up buying everything I needed for the girls, guys and mother in laws for only 50 dollars! What a steal!

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Four. - Mother of the Groom Attire. - I was so happy to hear that my soon-to-be Mother in Law had found a dress for the wedding! Her and my Mom both had been having trouble finding something to wear for the special occassion. She found this little gem and Dillards on sale and couldn't pass it up. I can't wait to see how she looks in it, I'm sure it will be gorgeous!

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Three. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Three. - Turnersville, Texas. - When I visited my Dad for his Birthday we took a walk around Downtown Turnersville. Now, this town is not big by any means but it holds a lot of happy memories for me. Like this old run down gas station. There was a time when it was up and running and the counters were full with all kinds of goodies. I remember going to this store to buy candies with my brother and cousins. I think it's a shame that half the things that were up and running when I was a kid are no more then old run down buildings a sleepy little town.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Two. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-Two. - Roller Derby. - Some friends of ours invited us to go to a Roller Derby Tournament after work and since we had never been we decided it would be pretty fun. Plus, it was BYOB so that's always a good time! After a while, and a few drinks, and knowing the actual rules of the game it got pretty exciting. And I'm glad we got to spend some time with our friends.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-One. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty-One. - Emily Bronte. - While waiting on William to get off work I decided to catch up on a book I've been trying to read quite some time now, Wuthering Heights. I'm happy to say that I've finally completed the first chapter, I read all the "About the Author" as well, and I hope keep finding time to read because I really miss it.

Day Two Hundred & Forty. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Forty. - Alterations Never Done. - This is probably one of the worst days I've had in a long time and the worst expierence I've ever had with David's Bridal. I took my dress in to get alterations done and after standing, in heels, for an hour and a half the lady was finally finished. She had a pretty bad attitude but I blew it off as her having a bad day, she mentioned she had a headache, but the way I was treated after this was unacceptable. I also was poked about a million times, I'm exaggerating, with the pins and had a nice little scratch on my leg. Anyway, I wasn't going to be able to pay the day that I did the alterations and I made the seamstress aware of that and she said I could come back Sunday and pay and to let the girls at the front counter know. I tell the girls at the counter what she said and they started to ring me up anyway. I camly tell her that I would be coming back Sunday and the seamstress said it was okay. Then asked if I could get some sort of paper stating that they had my dress and was told I could not until I paid. I started to walk out of the store and then turned around and told them to give me my dress back. I was not about to leave my dress somewhere where I have no proof that it's there. What if it gets lost? And I simply could not see myself paying two hundred dollars for a inch or two off the bottom. So I took my dress, in tears, and left the store. I sat out in my car for a few minutes to calm down and then drove home and wrote their headquarters a e-mail. They said they could still do the alterations but could not change the price. Needless to say I will never be shopping there again, or recommending it to anyone.

Honeymooning in Mexico.

Our Honeymoon will be spent on a gorgeous cruise ship for five nights, leaving on the 13th and coming back the 18th, and we will be visting Cozumel and Progreso. As far as the photos show it's going to be an amazing time with beautiful scenery. Our room has a ocean view. I really can't wait to see the inside of the ship. I've never been on a cruise, William has, so I have no idea what to expect. This is going to be our first vacation with each other. Just the two of us. Only 29 more days to go and then we're off!

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Nine. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Nine. - Pampered Chef Party. - I was invited to this party by one of the girls in the neighborhood and I was really excited to go and R.S.V.P until I realized that it was on the day on my make-up trial and the day my Mom was coming up to get last things for the Bridal Shower. And I totally forgot to call and let her know that I wouldn't be able to make it so I hope she doesn't think I'm rude or something and invites me to the next one!

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Seven. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Seven. - Picnic in the Park. - We decided to ride our bikes down the park, about ten miles away, and I thought since I had rode eight miles without a problem that I'd be able to make it all the way to this park. Well, there was a giant hill that just killed me, not to mention the fact that cars where honking at me because I'm still pretty slow, and we ended up having our Picnic at a park closer. I was pretty dissapointed in myself but I had gone further then before so I am improving. Hopefully next time I can make it all the way. The picnic was a lot of fun though, and something we had never done before, I just wish we had brought a blanket to sit out on.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Six. - Hand Wash Only. - Now this I have always done, hand wash my own clothes when needed, I just wish I had a clothing line in our back yard to put them on the dry. Instead I leave them hanging up in our laundry room.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Five. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Five. - Lunch Break. - Preparing lunch for William and myself for the day. I can't believe that I actually get up early and do these kind of things. I used to be the girl that slept until noon, or later, now I wake up at seven in the morning. Oh, how times have changed. I love it though.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Four. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Four. - Five Months Old. - I came back home and my adorable little girl was so excited to see me. Since she's still just a puppy she's incredibly hyper and playful but I caught her in sitting down for a moment and was able to snap the photo. Even though I think her eyes looks like she's up to no good she's adorable, anyway! I can't believe how big she's gotten and that she's only going to get bigger, haha.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Three. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Three. - Rest in Peace, Memaw. - It has been four years since I've visited her grave, I haven't been back since the day of her funeral, and every time I visit my parents I tell myself that I should visit her grave but I never do. This time, I did, my parents and I walked up to the grave yard and stood there for a couple of seconds. I had planned to sit there and just cry and talk with her but I wanted to do it alone. A few tears rolled down my eyes and I had to walk away. The fact of the matter is that visiting her grave made her passing away even more real. I think it gave me the closure that I needed and to be able to not feel guilty any longer. It didn't make it easier, though, and nothing ever will. There won't be a day that she doesn't cross my mind but at least now I can stop beating myself up about it.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Two. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-Two. - On The Road Again. Last minute I decided to drive down to my parents house since it's my Dad's birthday. I had planned on not going because of gas, and lack of money. My Aunt also has Cancer and they aren't giving her much more time, a Breakfast is planned on her honor for the following weekend but I will be unable to attend, so I decided to go to visit her as well. I've never driven down to my parents by myself so it was quite an adventure especially since I ended up getting off course. And since there is hardly any signal where my parents live, or anywhere near it, it was quite frusterating trying to get directions with words being cut off and calls being dropped. I finally found my way to their house. I have to admit it was a nice, relaxing, little mini-vacation and I'm really glad I took the time to make the trip.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-One.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty-One. - WorkSpace. - This is my little corner of the office. We have a rather small office, compared to other's, and my Office Manager and Store Manager have their own little corners too. Since it's so small there's not a lot of storage space for things so it always looks quite messy.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirty. - Carpooling to Work. - Since William is now working a day shift, 9am to 6pm, and it's on my way to work we decided to start Carpooling. There's no point in riding the same way in different cars each day especially since my car is more fuel efficient. After a while if we decided this something we want to do permanently we will be selling WIlliam's car and just have one for the both of us. We always use my car, anyway, so there is no point in paying on a car that is sitting in the drive way. We will see how things go, though!
