A few minutes ago I checked on the threads to see if there were any updates only to find that some of these girls are MEAN! Thankfully no one has been mean to me in any of my threads, but I read through another one where a few girls ganged up on the girl who started the thread (because she didn't give enough info in the beginning an then didn't answer them back for a couple of hours) and pretty much made the girl say she was sorry and that she'd delete the question.
Seriously. Mean shit. She only waited a couple of hours to answer the people-my guess is she was probably at work and couldn't write back. Catty...I don't think I'll post anything more.
This weekend Brian and I went to IKEA and to a couple of craft stores to get some trial components to our centerpieces. I drew a sketch a little while back and we decided on the basics but we wanted to make sure that it all really fit together and looked nice. It was fun shopping with Brian for things we'll use at our wedding. It's even more fun because Brian is planning on making a couple of the components and I love that this will make it more personal. I can't wait to see what the whole thing looks like (he has to build two things before we can see for sure)...so far, I really love it.
Though, you know...I'm having a hard time finding glass sea floats that are not ugly and not super expensive. I'd really love to find them in the colors shown below and about 3 inches in diameter...for less than $3 each. Right now, I can only find them for over $6...and most of the time, more expensive than that.
I'm kind of obsessed with them. I've always loved them, actually (I especially love when they have old rope netting around them!) but now that we're using them in our wedding, I REALLY love them. Sadly, considering that we'll need probably about 20-30 of them, I am not certain it'll really happen. But, I have contacted a few people online to see if they'll sell me some at wholesale prices and also contacted a store in P-Town that we visited last year on our anniversary trip...we saw some there and it could be a perfect excuse to take a ride! It's fun searching for these deals. I kinda live for this stuff!!*
In other news, I dyed my hair very dark brown...which is quite close to my natural hair color...I think. It's been a ridiculous amount of time since I've seen that color (6th grade, I believe!) so I'm curious to see how the roots come in. I like the new color but I'm not used to it yet. It's really, really dark. Brian likes it a lot and though he says it's most important that I like it, I say that he's pretty high up there too.
No...I don't have any pictures. Maybe I'll take some in a few days when I'm feeling more confident about the color. And also, when I have makeup on. :)
*Just as I was about to publish this post, one of the people emailed me back. He offered to sell the floats I inquired about for $20 each with freight charges of $90!!! Um...no thanks. :(
