Wedding dress shopping today was a success for Rachel, myself, and even Mom! The dress I ended up with wasn’t there in my size so there’s no picture to provide, but hopefully with all of the weight I intend to lose it will look even better than what we could tell when the big day finally comes. And Mom’s got a “sexy” mothers dress. She didn’t want to have an “old lady” dress. (LOL) The one she ended up with was very flattering and didn’t make her look old at all
And these are the two dresses it came down to for Rachel. Which one she actually chose, I will not reveal. But both were great on her and the one she finally went with will look beautiful for her wedding.
So the wedding dresses above is just part of the secrets sister stuff mentioned in the title above. The second bit of news is crazy unexpected…
I’m going to be an Aunt!
That’s right. My baby sister is having a baby. She’s not really a baby of course, she’ll be 26 this year, but she still feels like a baby to me. I can’t believe she’s going to be a Mommy!
The kicker… the baby is due 3 months before her wedding. She’s got a rough year in store for her between being pregnant and planning a wedding. Oh, and finding a house because they currently rent with roommates in the city which is not exactly ideal for raising a baby.
I’m surprisingly excited for her though. I’m not much of a kid’s kind of person. I always thought I’d have my own one day, but as I’ve aged the idea seems less and less for me. Maybe being an Aunt will prove me wrong though?
I’m so happy for my sister right now. Between all the awesomeness of my new crit group this week and the good things going on for my sister, happiness is literally radiating off of me. My cheeks hurt from the constant smile I’ve been wearing all week!
Rachel & Me (Today)
