I had such a fun day.
You can read about the fun I had picking out my wedding dress here. I couldn't be more in love with this dress. I will consider myself lucky that I found my dress after trying on only four (well, it was actually the first of four I tried on today). After looking at dresses I took Melissa and Julie (my maid of honor and bridesmaid) out to lunch. It was a super fun girl's lunch. We had cocktails. Ate BBQ. Had dessert. We also talked weddings, of course. Melissa has so much great advice for me, having already done this herself. The girls want to take me to Vancouver for a bachelorette party! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have such great friends. My only complaint is not seeing them anywhere near as much as I'd like. We are all so busy with our lives, it can often be hard to find time to catch up. Today was perfect, though.
After I got home from all of that fun Matt and the girls and I went over to the cafe/bar where our reception is going to be held at. I took lots of pictures, which I posted here. It was so fun to think about the reception and talk about the food and figure out how we might do a little decorating.
After that we took the girls over to Izilla Toys and played for a bit. We got Iris a Yo Baby board. They have these at her school and she LOVES them. After we got home we discovered Eloise likes it, too! I would have never thought to get one for Iris if I hadn't seen her at school playing with it.
After some pizza for dinner and getting the girls to bed a bit late, we're all beat. Iris is doing a little bit better tonight after having a rough night last night and waking up with a good fever. We hope she's well enough tomorrow to hang out with our friends so Matt and I can finally get our Valentine's Day dinner in. We'll see!
Here are a couple cute pictures of Eloise from today:
