I'm so happy to report that after months of torture, the bridesmaid dresses are now in my hands. I knew they'd arrive this week but I had no idea when. When I got to work on Friday my boss surprised me with the box - I really wanted to cry. Of course I dropped everything I was doing and ripped the box open like it was Christmas morning:This was the first time I'd seen the dresses in this color - all I had seen was a little tiny swatch when I ordered them - I love the way that it turned out! The color is called RASPBERRY!
COUSIN KIM!!! Doesn't she just look like a bad influence? Lol - actually it was all of ours faults. Cousin Kim for suggesting going to my favorite pizza spot (which is actually just a couple stores down from Jenny Craig, lol) Cousin Jan for tempting me and myself for giving in to peer pressure. LOL. It's cool though - those 2 sticks were so worth it! Especially the one with the bacon!
PS: I got to work as a makeup artist during this years Miami Fashion-Swim Week, read about it HERE...how cute is she? As stated previously, all of my girls have different dresses. Everyone has their quirks and parts of their body that they're not excited about. I picked out dresses for each person that I thought would compliment their body as well as camouflage the areas that they're not so fond of. Example: Cousin Jan hates to show her arms...problem solved!
We spent so much time locked in the dressing room fawning over the dresses that I kind of got in trouble (whoops - forgot I was working). I'm beyond pleased with everything and I know all the girls will be too.
As far as weight loss goes I've dropped 9 lbs so far and 6 inches. ::sigh:: I have to admit that I cheated a little bit this week and I'd like to blame it on this young lady and her box of pizza sticks...
I have to admit that I'm probably more excited about the arrival of the girls dresses than I am of my own. It was such an ordeal getting them but so worth it - I'd do it again!
Cousin Jan was so excited as well that she came over to my job right away to try hers on.
