An interesting holiday...

Well I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.  This being my first holiday on Weight Watchers-I was a little nervous about all of the food, but it went well and I didn't feel deprived at all.  It's funny how much you can do when you just set your mind to something.

It was a bit of a sad day, though.  Vince was gone on a 4 day camping trip with his dad, so I was missing him a lot!  My mom (who is a doula- which is a woman who assists in delivering babies) got called to a birth on the morning of Thanksgiving, and she was gone until 1am!  She missed the whole day, but we brought her some food to the hospital...it wasn't the best day, but we still had fun with some neighborhood friends. 
This morning, my mom and I took out her wedding dress to see what we could salvage from it for mine (which she is going to make). 
   I think we can definitely use some of the lace, which I love!
Up close of the detail...
This is her prom dress from highschool.  I have worn it so many times for Halloween and different plays when I was in in high school.  We are going to model the style of my wedding dress off of this dress.  It's so simple, and I cannot wait to get started!
So, it was a good holiday.  I hope you each had a wonderful time with your families. 

Tomorrow I am going to be sharing a wedding that I think you will love.  It's one of the most simple, unique weddings I've ever heard of and I cannot WAIT to tell you all about it!

That is so sweet that you are using some of the lace from your mom's wedding dress! That will make your dress even more special and personal!

That's so neat that you are using your mother's dress on your own...and I love the shape of the prom dress you mentioned. That cut looks gorgeous on everyone I think! Can't wait to see it all!
