I found the dress!

I made my first big purchase for the wedding this weekend! After visiting 2 salons and trying on about 15 dresses, I found THE ONE! I had planned to go to at least 4 salons however, when I came across the dress last weekend I realized my dress shopping was over. I did not buy the dress right away, I waited a week and went back with my Mom, Eileen, Katie, Kylie and Lindsey for a 2nd trial and that was enough to reassure me that this was THE DRESS. Of course I will not be posting any photos of THE DRESS, because that should be a surprise. However I have posted a few photos of the dresses that did not make the cut. Trying on wedding dresses was a wonderful and exciting experience. I would do it all the time if I could! :) THE DRESS will be ready in the spring, just in time for bridal photos!

Joe & Des' Wedding

Our weekend in California
Ed and I just returned from a 4-day weekend in Northern California. We went for my friend Des' wedding (I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and she will be a bridesmaid in our wedding as well!). We had a great time, the weather was beautiful, a little cold, but a nice break from the 90 degree weather we left in Houston! The wedding was in Los Gatos, CA at Testarossa Winery. It was beautiful! We also visited Monterey and Carmel while we were there. The beaches are gorgeous and Pebble Beach/ 17-mile-drive was great! Here are a few photos from this weekend...

First Blog Ever!

As I embark in the process of planning a wedding...and building a marriage, I have decided to use the now popular method of blogging to chronicle these events and whatever else the future holds. Welcome to the Skrljac blog! :)
