W Is For Wedding Dress

I must be the only person on earth who did not have a wagon as a kid.
Every one I knew had one, ironically red Little Flyer wagons were all the rage, but I didn't have one.
I made sure to buy a wagon for my kids. Fisher Price made awesome wagons with benches, so that's what I went with for them.
But I am not going to babble for a whole post about this, no, I have something nearer and dearer to my heart to share with you all.
"The hubby" and I are not actually married. We're only common-law for now. After 13 years, we're married in the government's eyes, our families eyes, and probably God too.
When my dad passed, my mom wanted to get my wedding dress, since my dad would no longer be there. It was the single most wonderful thing anyone has done for me.
I have what I call and Audrey-Hepburn-sense-of-style. The dress is very reminiscent of that era and reminds me very much of Audrey Hepburn. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it.
Thankfully, July of 2015, I finally get to wear it!!!! (Permitted things stay on plan. We have family in Texas we want here as well as family in other parts of our province, so coinciding every one's schedules may be an issue.)
I've had the dress a few years now, and still feel the same way every time I pull it out to look at it. I just know it's the dress.
Recently, I found the piece I will wear in my hair. It matches my dress perfectly.
People who know me, know what a princess I am. I was going to get a tiara to wear on the big day. Then I saw this headband and had that same "just know it" feeling.
Now it won't matter where we do the ceremony, which is still up in the air. He wants to do it on the harbor boat, I want outdoors... maybe even my mother-in-laws yard.... so we'll see what happens. Just be sure it will happen. Eventually.

For those who are married, how long did it take you to tie the knot? For those engaged, what type of wedding will you have??

  4. I love the line that the hubby and I are not married! Congrats! Beautiful dress.... it took me quite a while and enough drama to write a book about before I tied the knot :)

    When I did marry, we had a planned elopement on the beach in Aruba

  6. I am a fan of Audrey too, always have been and always will. I played so many of her movies throughout my daughter's childhood that she too is a fan as well. My current, and (second husband) and I lived together, unmarried for six years, dated almost two before that, and once we married, a year and 7 months later we had our first child! My first husband, we met on October 29th and married in December, of that same year. We had a baby boy three years later (he was born on the day the 29th of October) and that marriage lasted only four years. Making sure it's right, is so very important!

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
