Two Tickets to Paradise

I think I might be getting married. Within the past few days, I've bought:

1. A wedding dress.
It's poofy, even. I never thought I'd buy a poofy wedding dress, but here I am, poofing it up.

I did end up buying it from that charity that supports breast cancer research, and they had plenty of extra certificates lying around.

I didn't take any more, though. No need to be greedy.

2. A veil.
I also never really thought I'd wear a veil. It's the kind that comes with a comb that you just stick on the back of your head, so there won't be any games of peek-a-boo at the altar, but still. So bride-y!

I tried the whole get-up on again when I got home, and I am embarrassed to admit that I was kind of completely into it. I've never understood the wedding outfit before--"White is so unflattering!" I would say to myself. "And veils are weird! Why don't people just get lovely formal gowns in black, or green, or something? And why must they be so POOFY?"

What can I say, I'm a jerkwad. I have been totally won over by the poof.

Even so, the most exciting recent purchase was:

Two one-way tickets to Dubrovnik, Croatia. Check it out:

Can you stand the pretty? It is almost intolerable, how pretty that is. I bought the one-way tickets only because I found a super cheap deal, and we decided that we'd leave the return ticket open for now and see where else we might want to go. But I'm going to pretend that it was because we're never coming back.

So jealous about your trip! I liked my wedding dress - it's about six sizes too big for me now but I still take it out and try it on every now and then, because I'm a dork.

I can't wait to see the poofy!
