The Wedding Dress and happy moments...

We had some very happy moments this week.  My daughter's wedding dress came in to the bridal salon and she had to rush to try it on for a fitting. It was perfect. 
(I'm not allowed to show it in case "he" were to be snooping around and see it on his mother in law to be blog...)

We also went shopping for the perfect "Cinderella shoes" for the wedding.
These however were just a 'few' hundred dollars....so we headed to DSW in Palm Springs to find
 a more....budget friendly pair of shoes!
She tried on countless pairs...
 even grandma had to sit down and take a small nap during the shoe extravaganza.
And then....
mom had to finally step in and suggest we pick a pair before SOMETIME IN DECEMBER (wedding is next month)...

pressure is always good...haha (I also said we could return them if we needed to...the store was starting to close...)
One must find the magic slippers before the magic wedding day!

think they look like Cinderella shoes!

I'm not allowed to show any more than this or else...I'm subject to great punishment.
 This daddy was happy to make her dreams come true before the big day.  So after the fitting we went to Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Palm Springs to celebrate...that the dress fit!  We split one piece of cheesecake....waaaah....but oh it was sooooo good.

 The next day we went to Carlsbad bakery for the cake tasting...she picked out her cake...each layer is a different flavor. I didn't know they did that...vanilla, chocolate, marble and velvet all in one cake, just four different tiers.
 And what is a wedding without a bridal shower?We sent out invitations....decided on a menu, and theme...  We made a candy table, desert table, food table and drink station. But I was so busy I can't believe I didn't get pictures of everything. But it was a wonderful day, and she was so happy. That is what it is all about.

A tiny bit of the wedding dress fluff...lots of ostrich feathers, rosettes, light airy fabric.
A true fairy tale. And she is marrying her high school sweetheart.

Yay...only a few more days...and then I can sleep.  She is Cinderella, I feel like the other Disney movie...sleeping *****...except I can't wait to sleep...for a long time!
