Princess Bride

Good morning blue skies and sunshine!  What a beautiful day to begin the search for the perfect bridal gown for my princess!  Off to Montgomery Jenna and I go with my Mama (better known to everyone as Meme), and Sarah, her maid-of-honor and life long best friend.

Our first stop was All About Weddings.

George's mom, Aggie, joined us for the fun!

Jenna tried on lots of pretty dresses!      And the staff was great!          
We did decide on the perfect shade of white that was best on Jenna.  Who would have ever guessed there were so many shades of WHITE?

The next stop was a quaint little boutique, Bridals by Penolia, on Mulberry Street.

Jenna tried on 2 gowns and really liked the second gown.  Hmmmmmm......will this be the one?

A precious expression on Meme's face as she watches her baby Jenna try on wedding dresses!

Off to eat lunch at Shashy's and then a little deversion to East Chase to visit a couple of stores (while we were in the area)!

Our final store was David's Bridal!  Boy was it crowded and we didn't know you had to have an appointment!                            

But after a little wait, off Jenna and Sarah go to the dressing room with the first pick!  It wasn't long before Sarah reappeared trying to hold back laughter as she asked me to help.  Apparently, neither she or Jenna could figure out exactly how to get in the dress with so much netting and fluff!

Well.....netting, fluff and lots of glittzy beads looks great.......if you want to look like a cupcake!

 During this time, Meme finds a little friend named Hannah.  Meme loves the little ones and I think both of them have had about all the wedding shopping they could stand for one day!

I don't think little Hannah was the only one that was tired of shopping!  Do you????

  Jenna finds 2 more gorgeous gowns that look stunning on her so now....... which will it be?

We are going to review the pictures I made and sleep on it a few days because.........this is my baby girl, a piece of my heart, my princess and...... this dress has to be perfect and exactly what she had dreamed about!  After all, she is my princess bride!!!!!

Welcome to my blog!

People who know me may be a little surprised at my attempt to begin a blog!  But I have come to realize that my life is quickly changing and if I don't do something to help me remember these events in my life, I may never be able to recapture the emotions and memories that are unfolding.  I not only wanted this for myself but I also wanted those I love and care about, whether they are near or far away, to experience the times of my life!  That is why I named this "Love Notes".  This blog is dedicated to my soul mate, Jerry, and my precious children, Jared, Justin, Jenna, Dawn, Marsha, and George!  I will do my best not to embarrass you all but maybe one day you will be able to look back and have fond memories of these special times!  So, all that said and done, here are my "Love Notes" to my family and friends I love!
