So... my mother is getting married on Saturday. She and her fiance have been together, and engaged, for over 10 years.
She didn't want to plan any kind of wedding. She wanted to go to Vegas and get married in a chapel there. However, his children protested, so she has put together a party for this Saturday. She chose the date based on when my sister (who lives in Kansas) could come up, with her baby. She did not want to get married without all her children there.. and it would not have been the same if one of us was missing.
Since we are having the family event on Saturday I have no plans for Thanksgiving at all. I have finals due and I am so behind. I plan to hopefully come to campus and find a quiet place to dig in for this last big push.
I really love the outfit I bought for the wedding, and I am looking forward to some great photos of my entire family. The girls are all just wearing black or dark dresses. I went all out -- a LB cocktail dress. Ever woman needs a LBD and mine is verah verah FAHN-say.
I won't put a picture of it up here but here are the shoes I bought to match...
I would not wear the shoes pictured in my user icon for the wedding, even if I could... I would trip and fall on my face for sure! They were great for the photo shoot, but a walk down an aisle and an evening of dancing and running around to say hi to all my family calls for a little more stability. But these shoes are very similar, black with a peep toe. I really wanted some platforms but the poofy ribbon flower on these heels match the black ribbon roses at the neckline of my dress.
I don't know why I seem to be focused on shoes so much in this blog. Strange. First the running shoes and now these shoes. In looking at my photo archive, I seem to take a lot pictures of myself walking in various shoes.
It's not about the shoes, it's about my feet on the journey and where they will take me.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
