I found it!...I found "The One" !!!

So, I went wedding dress shopping this weekend and I found my dress! I had an appointment at Low's Bridal in Brinkley because I had heard so many wonderful things about it and I was just dying to go! So, my mom and I planned a little trip for this past weekend. Unfortunately, my sister wasn't able to make it, but I was lucky enough to have my friend Brandi come with me.

I'll spare you all of the details, and I will just sum up our trip to Low's as "disappointing" (to say the least!). I tried on TONS of dresses, but I just never got excited about any of them. Back in June, my mom , my sister, and I went dress shopping back home just for fun and I found a dress that I loved. Buuuut, it was a little over what I was wanting to spend, and I found it so quickly that it made me, I told my mom I wanted to keep looking. Well, every dress I tried on after that just didn't compare. So, after the disappointing shopping trip on Friday, the hunt for this dress was on--I knew that if I could just try it on again, all would be right with the world!

Long story short, I found it....and even was ON SALE! This dress is beautiful! It makes me smile just thinking about it! All I have to say is that Maggie Sottero is a genius....there is no doubt about it! I felt sorry for Brandi because she had never seen this dress and every dress I tried on at Low's that was decent, I kept saying, "It's just not the Maggie..." haha!

So, one big task down, TONS more to go!

Hello All!

My name is Erin, and I am new to the blogosphere so please bear with me as I learn the ins and outs of blogging.

Here's a little info about me:

I live in Fayetteville, AR and I love it! I'm orginally from Texas, but I came here for college and decided to stay after graduation. I am engaged to my best friend, Carey. He currently lives in Little Rock, but he is moving back to Fayetteville in a few months (yay!). We met in college and were really good friends, but didn't start dating until after I graduated. He had to move to Little Rock for his job last October, but he's recently gotten a new job that is bringing him back to Fayetteville! I have an older sister, Whitney, who recently got married. She lives back in Texas and I miss her a lot. She's an amazing big sister--she's always there for me and she always shoots me straight and tells me what I need to hear. Her husband Nate is awesome--he's so good to her and our family just loves him!

I wanted to start a blog because Carey and I are getting married next April and I wanted a way to document all the fun things that are about to start happenings in our lives. I hope you all enjoy a little peak into life, as I know it!
