May the Roots of Your Family Tree Grow Deep and Strong

      I've really been wanting hydrangeas for the wedding because not only are the gorgeous but they also dry and look exactly the same as they do on the trees. So for the past three weeks I have been knocking on these peoples door in Shinnston to see if I could cut theirs. Knowing they would probably think I was crazy. Well fortunately for me they were out of town for over two weeks at their daughters wedding, so I caught them just at the right time. When I noticed they were home I ran over hoping and praying they would say yes. Low and behold she didn't even hesitate, she told me I could take them all... I was so happy I went back the first pretty day with my tough box in hand not knowing what I was about to get myself into. To say the least I had to send my friend Bri to the gas station to buy garbage bags because I never thought there would be quite so many, and when I say so many I mean I didn't know there was going to be a TON!!! After 2 1/2 hours a huge tough box and 10-11 garbage bags later I finally have my flowers...

And this is only half the other half is at my parents house...

I found it...

     After 6 long hours and 2 appointments in the same day at the same place I finally found my dress. I'm sooo excited. And the best part I got to spend the whole day with my mom and my sister. I didn't realize that doing this with them would be so much different and so much more important to me then going with my friends. I'm sure it would have been nice with them to but just not mean as much. But back to the dress, it is gorgeous and just what I wanted very simple and light weight since the wedding is outside I don't want to be real hot all day. I also found my shoes...To say the least they are bad ass haha. All I kept saying all day "well if anything at least the shoes will make anything look good." But the dress with the shoes is just perfect.
