    So I decided to drag Aaron out dress shopping. Since it's grad season already, there are TONS of dresses out and they're all on sale! So I went to the mall with two missions in mind; One, find a dress for my engagement pictures with Leigh in August - Check! Two, find a trash the dress for the wedding, CHECK! I found a really great dress for $60!!! It fits super well, the top is a bit big - but it's still stays up! lol. I'll have it altered when I get my wedding dress altered. Anyways.. here's my $60 trash the dress dress!

    Since most prom/grad girls have bought their dresses, prices were great. That's why I wanted to go now... this time next year would be too late ()! I would completely suggest trying this. Woot... one more thing checked off the list! Yay!

        Excellent deal Courtney! It looks great!

        I also need to start shopping for clothes for Feb in Cancun, since warm weather clothes will not be available in Ohio in the winter.

          Courtney, you are the headless woman, lol.
          Great shopping success, girlie-girl. Make sure you do get the bodice altered if it is too loose or you may be topless at some point in the trashing. Then it would be trashing an b-pictures all at the same time.
          Lord I am insane...please excuse my goofiness, I am soooo tired tonite.
          Where is the photo of the other dress, hmmmmm?

          For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

              That's a really good point -- we need to shop now for next February too, for all the summer clothes... will have to start doing that.

                  Oooh the other dress! lol. I'll post pictures of that too... I just have to work up the energy to try it on again! lol This one was a little more expensive, it was $120... but that was a lot better than the first dress I tried on that I loved; $300!! lol. Plus this one is much more beach-y looking.
