The little things

Tonight we went to a couple of places to look at suits for the guys.  We found a lot of neat stuff and decided on a nice set up at Stallone’s Formal Wear.  Not only are the suit and the price right, but I think it’s pretty cool that it’s the same place my Dad went to get his suits for Mom and Dad’s wedding.  Now we just need all the guys to get fitted by May 1st.  🙂

I also got a chance to see if Mom’s veil will work with my dress.  IT DOES!  Grandma’s pearls and ear rings also match well enough and I’m excited to wear them. 

I know they are all little things in the grand scheme of the world, but I like tying history to the present like that.  I love the idea that Andrew will be wearing a suit from the same store Dad used in 79 for his wedding.  It makes me smile to think that I’ll be using Mom’s veil and Grandma’s jewelry.  I’m using Grandpa’s tie clip to decorate my bouquet.

In other news I’m going to end up having to take my dress in (BOO!) because I’ve been very successful in loosing size if not weight (YAY!).  It’s a mixed blessing that involves both feeling better and constantly having to buy new cloths.  I’ve never been a huge fan of shopping and I’m extra cheap when it comes to purchasing cloths so BOO, but it’s still something you don’t get a lot of sympathy for.  No one feels for you when you say “aww Man!  I’ve got to go cloths shopping again because I just keep slimming down!”  I understand why I got the stink eye from Ana (who is still due in a month and a half) when I said it, but I still mean it.

That’s all I’ve got for tonight.
