These last few days have been a roller coaster. Saturday we found the venue for the wedding. Sunday we went to a bridal show. After the show, we went to JoAnn's and found the patterns for the bridesmaids and flower girls. I will be combining 3 patterns for the bridesmaid dresses. After that we had an appointment at David's Bridal. My daughter fell in love with the last dress she tried on. Since this was the first time she had tried on dresses and her maid of honor(her sister) wasn't with us, we made another appointment for Monday night which we ended up canceling on Monday and rescheduling for Tues afternoon.
Monday morning I called the church to reserve the date. I was told that it was now no longer available. This put my daughter into a hysterical fit. She didn't want to change the date etc. etc. Well, I had her fiancee come for supper. After quite a bit of discussion and tears it was decided to move the date a week later. I called the church today and we now have the date reserved.
Also, today my daughters and a friend (who will be a bridesmaid) went wedding dress shopping. They went to 2 bridal shops and she tried on about 15+ dresses. She kept comparing them to the dress that she really liked at David's Bridal. Well, to make a long story short, she went back to David's Bridal and bought the dress. It was on sale for 50%off + she had a $50 coupon. So, she ended up getting it for $50 below the budget I set for the dress!
Needless to say, yesterday I didn't get any exercise in. I was so tired (I didn't sleep well the night before) and stressed. I did have a small victory though-- I wanted to stress eat, but I stayed out of the kitchen and went downstairs and quilted (I even finished getting the quilt quilted!)
I will have a lot of sewing to do the next 7 months so hopefully that will keep me occupied and out of the kitchen some more
I have 2 kilts, the veil and straps to put on the wedding dress (I wasn't going to pay $39 for little straps!), 8 bridesmaids dresses, 2 flower girl dresses, 1 ring bearer's outfit, and my dress to make. Plus who knows what else will come up.

I know I didn't reach some goals last couple of days. But that is okay. I am learning that I don't have to be a perfectionist and go strong 100% of the time. I am still going forward and I did lose weight this week.
