I wish I was here today...

Fellow blogger the hotness ask where would I rather be today...I rather be here, at the one up the the street from my apartment.

Enjoying the free wi-fi... Lost in my designs and music working at my leisure and my own pace eating a apple pastry. No deadlines and a boss over my shoulder *sighing*.

I'm shoe obsessing...
Along with my shoe obsession for the perfect pair I'm obsessing over my daughter to be shoes. With the rapid growth of her feet I have to buy closer to our wedding day. Hope these butterfly jewel ones are still available when I purchase??!!! LooooVE...

Here are more adorable shoes! What's your favorite?

My search is over

My Maid of honor look

My Bridesmaids look

I was have many problems finding the perfect brides maid dress. Well I did have one that I loved but could not find the dresses to match the one. It was a grueling process because I was shopping solely online for the best deals. The issue was was dress were going fast and it was hard to get all the girls sizes and see if the color would match the original dress from Jcrew. It was just to difficult with the distance of some of my maids and dresses disappearing the next day to get a uniform look. So finally I grab my 2 sister in laws to be/bridesmaids and we went to Jcrew and found the one! Its the very look and style I was going for and it looked so good on both of their shapes plus plenty dresses were in stock. So all we have left are their shoes and accessories.

Can't get in contact with MOH #1 for dress measurements.

My lil sis chooses at the last minute to tell me she's pregnant The perfect dress may not fit her at the time of the wedding luckily its a baby doll style giving room in the tummy and hip area.

Not having a caterer yet.

Wedding planning ask me to call her on Sunday night so we could cover much ground I haven't had a call back yet, well it's only been a day but the clock is ticking.

Music searching is so hard!

long over due...

(above) My love, Father of the year and our joy!

I called him. Him who? You say...My biological father who. I was talking to little sis to catch her up on wedding duties since she's one of my bridesmaids. She'll be wearing this number. She gave me the news that she pregnant and got a little nervous cause I really wanted her in my wedding. We share the same dad but grow up not know each other as well as I would have liked. Coming up I was always hurt that our dad was more in her life than mines. Years past and I finally worked up the nerve to tell her how I felt about things and it brought us closer. Since then my sis's mom past and she was very special to me as well, she was like a second mother to me. But I knew from then on she was going need me in her life more than ever. Although I grow closer to my sis I was feeling more hurt and resentment from my dad's abandonment. Hearing that they talk on regular made me feel forgotten.
With the wedding getting closer I was more and more needing to know what was going through his head. So I final called him this Sunday during the grammy's and we talked for about an hour. It felt good to have questions answered that I didn't think I would get answered. So we only can talke it step by step from here but its a start. I just hope we can continue from this point with a relationship and not go 13 years without talking again.
