With a week just passing since my brothers wedding, we're full swing into preparations for my little sisters big day. We went wedding dress shopping yesterday and may have found the perfect gown - we'll see what she decides. If she doesn't want it, I'm trying to convince one of my other younger sisters to buy it for her wedding - and she would, except she doesn't have a guy and she is not going to buy a dress in anticipation.

The plan is for a casual fall wedding and we may have found the perfect barn to have the event. They had wanted to do an outdoor wedding, but since it is in November, we are going to just do it in a casual facility. Casual is not my style, but I'm really looking forward to this wedding. I think with a barn and the groomsmen wearing Carhartts, it is going to embrace the more rustic, casual feel the couple wants, but with her wearing a beautiful dress and some more elegant touches, it is going to be a perfect blend that reflects their personalities. And I think it is going to be a lot of fun!

Green is their main color, and then they want to incorporate a fall color scheme, not leaning to heavily to either side. Not to much green and definitely not too many fall colors. We've already got some really good ideas and I can't wait to get started. Hopefully I'll be able to post picture as we go along.

Announcing Another Victim....

...of Cupid's Arrow

She was so subtil about it, leaning against the back of my chair in which I sat ironing the ties for my sister-in-law to be's wedding dress, and when I glanced back at her, she smiles and holds up her hand, flashing the ring along with her million dollar smile.

One of my little sisters is engaged. The one that was courting. I'm beginning to think that waiting isn't what the guy's around here do. Or perhaps my brother sent a new trend. He's the type to set new trends.

This will be the first time we'll be on the actual planning side of the wedding and it should be exciting around here for the next few months. Three to be exact. Well, didn't I say just this year that she was the one that needed to get married first? She is an absolute dear, but I think it is going to take all of her sisters working full time to get her married. This is the sister that always waits till the last minute to finish important dresses.

I can see it now, "You are not walking down the isle until I finish your hem. Just hold still a minute, he's used to waiting by now."

He's always puntucal, and she's the one just getting into the shower when we're supposed to be leaving. I'm sorry, but I think this is very funny.
