Super Model for a Day!

OK, so I had the best day yesterday!! I had my bridal portrait session at 5pm, so the whole day was spent in preparation! I actually was so excited that I was not able to sleep well and was up for the day at 3:30 - so I watched some Bridezillas and had a bowl of Cheerios, then went to work getting all my wedding gear together. Makeup, hair stuff, undergarments, jewelry, camera, etc. Then I got Smug-Hub up and took him to work, then I ran out to SpeeDee (the place where my brother works) and got my car inspected. When I returned home I took my time in the shower, shaving my legs, doing a facial mask, stuff like that - I just wanted to feel pampered. About 20 minutes before I needed to leave the house I started feeling like I was in desperate need of nap, so I set the timer and shut my eyes, about 45 seconds later Smug-Sister called, so I talked to her for a few minutes and then it was time to head out.

I met up with Mom and Will at SpeeDee so Mom could leave her car to be worked on and we all headed up with Rocky Mount to the hair place. Candy cut Will's hair first and then went to work on me! I had a picture of a sort of messy updo/bun thing that I thought looked really cool and Candy put a bit of her own creativity into the design, and I TOTALLY LOVED IT!!! The outcome was very classy and unique and did I mention how much I loved it???

We then headed back into Roanoke and I realized that all I had eaten all day was Cheerios! So we ran to Panera for a quick salad and Sassy met up with us there and we all drove to the hotel (where I was to get ready) together!

Sassy and Smug-Sister helped me get into all my wedding finery and then Sassy went to work on my makeup. This would be the time to mention that I currently have 2 zits (I hardly ever break out) AND a gold sore on my lip!! Sassy had her work cut out for her, but she rose to the challenge and I turned out looking fabulous. Smug-Sister helped me with the necklace and earrings and I was all set and ready to go.

The photographers arrived about that time and we started taking pictures! We took a few at the hotel then we all piled into cars and drove downtown and spent the next few hours walking around and taking pictures at cool locations. The photographers, d'Artisti, were so much fun to work with! They are a married couple and they are so cute with each other! They bicker and banter back and forth just like Smug-Hub and I do - I could so be buddies with them!!

When we finished up, I was really anxious to get back into "summer" clothes and took a nice long shower when I got home! I was tired, hungry, and completely happy! This was so much fun!! Everyone should have a couple of photographers take them to cool places and spend hours taking a ton of pictures!! So much fun!!

I am such a lucky woman! I have a wonderful family, great friends, a fabulous boy who wants to marry me, a job that I enjoy, an education, a nice car and a nice place to live!! I am so grateful to have all this!!
