Had a lovely time at the Ladies Night Out meetup last night. Woke up with a splitting headache though … lousy bugger has stubbornly stuck with me all damned day. I put in a call to my Dr’s office, but the earliest I’ll hear back from her is Monday (if I’m lucky).
Jim and I were out most of the day. This morning I went by Merle Norman and got my first trial makeup run. Jim really liked what they did and I’m happy with it overall, but I don’t care for the color of lipstick they chose (was BRIGHT red) … I think I’ll definitely go darker on the next run to see how it turns out.
What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good burgundy or crimson! ;)
We hit up several stores around town looking at various wedding supplies. We’re looking for a good photo album, but most of what we’re seeing either aren’t big enough or aren’t practical. We hit up the Hobby Lobby in Gardendale and perused the spacious crafts, paints, and so on … but not a whole lot of wedding stuff. (bummer)
We tried the local Wal-mart, and while they didn’t have a whole lot of photo albums, they did have a lot of other things. We looked at their silk trees and flowers section … I’m thinking of making my bouquet of those instead of real flowers. It would definitely keep longer! Still haven’t found a decent flower girl basket for Jessie yet. I take that back — there were several “decent” ones, but nothing I liked.
We booked around the Galleria a bit and I found my wedding jewelry:
I hate that I didn’t get those other earrings, but after seeing these I couldn’t pass them up! They were a bit more, but were nicer quality crystals and are much fancier.
What do y’all think? :)
