My Boys

These are my boys, and they have been my life lately.  I wouldn't have it any other way.

Saying Yes to the Dress

I have decided on my wedding gown.

I didn't cry.  I didn't get some big overwhelming feeling.  I actually tried on quite a few that were gorgeous.

But this was the one where I looked in the mirror and said, "I feel like a bride."

I pretty much spent all day Saturday looking.  We had three appointments, and I tried on at least 10-12 dresses at each store.  I had a favorite at each store, but there was the one where I just knew.

I went back today to try it on one last time so I could be sure.

I haven't ordered it yet... I want to make some calls and determine who can order it for me for the best price.

I refuse to show it online in the off chance Adam decides to read my blog and just can't keep himself from looking, but if you really want to see it then let me know you're email and I'll send you a link.

I have also made a decisions on bridesmaids dresses!!!  This one isn't a secret, so here's the link:

We will order them in the Kelly Green!

It feels really good to have some of these big decisions out of the way.  There's still a lot to be done, but so far all is going well and coming together (knock on wood)!

Becoming a Stepmom

When Adam and I get married this summer, I not only become a wife... I will also become a stepmom!

I've already been around his son a lot, and it's even more exciting to be around him now knowing that he will be a part of my life from now on.

He just turned 5 this past week, and we went to his birthday party with his family and friends from school this weekend.

It's interesting... I've always known that I want to be both a wife and a mom, but I never expected that it would in some ways happen all at once.  It's been a fun ride to get to know this kid and fall in love with him as I fell in love with his daddy!

I am just so thankful that he seems to love me back!

I never imagined before Adam and I got together that I would be a stepmom, but now that it's happening?  I'm pretty darn excited!
