Kellys Korner

For the past several months I have been reading Kelly's Korner blog. Every week she has done a "home tour" which I could never participate in, since I don't have a home just yet! This week was "Show Your Wedding Gown", but for those single ladies, you can show your dream gown. Therefor, I am participating this week!!!! As most of you know, I am wishing, hoping and praying that an engagement is coming soon. And at this point, I have fairly good reason to believe it is coming soon. (Picking out the ring and knowing it is purchased is usually enough, right??) So, without further ado, here are my dream gowns!

Lela Rose

Alvina Valenta

But if money were no option, this would hands down be my gown!

Maybe I am just highly out of touch with reality, however I find if amazing that people sell their previously worn wedding gowns, for thousands of dollars. Now, don't get me wrong, I can see the value and beauty in a Monique Lhuillier, Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Lela Rose, or Kenneth Pool gown, I simply cannot see spending $3500 on a dress that is tailored to someone else's body. What is even more crazy is the person selling their pre worn Monique Lhuillier gown for $6300, when they paid $7000. Really? All you could do was discount it $700?! Is this a joke?

Maybe I am just the crazy one for thinking one day I might find an actual deal on the Monique Lhuillier or Vera Wang of my dreams. A girl can dream, right? In the meantime I wil continue going crazy when I see the prices of these gowns...that have already been worn.

Monique Lhuillier (I have been lusting after this dress for 3 years)

Family Time

Back in June my cousin Bryan got married. The wedding was beautiful! It was up in the hills in Burbank,and the ceremony was in this cool little courtyard. Meaghan (the bride) looked beautiful, and she was so happy the whole day! We also got to see my cousin Kim who just had her second daughter about 4 weeks earlier. Mallory is so cute and tiny, and she slept the entire night. Our whole table passed her from person to person holding her, and not one single time did she fuss. Here are some pictures from the night! It was a great time, congrats again Bryan and Meaghan.

The whole family

Mallory and me again..I could have held her all night, I even considered sneaking out the side door with her!

Help is on the way

I start seeing a therapist on Tuesday, and I am so excited. I doubt many people say that, but I am! I have never had a problem talking about the fact that I have seen several therapist's in my life, and I think they are amazing. So, the fact that my job is paying for me to go is even better. I am really hoping I connect with my new therapist and she can help me deal with my many issues. I am looking foward to getting a new perspective on what I have been dealing with and really help me. I am so tired of being depressed, and dealing with anxiety and paranoia. I haven't really talked to many people about what is going on in my life, if you are intersted, feel free to ask. I just don't like bombarding people with my craziness!

Anyhoo, I am praying that my depression will let up soon. It has been really bad lately, and I am over-analyzing everything in my life, which just leads to more depression. About a week ago Travis and I went to Sea World for the day. It was the first time in a really long time that I went a whole day without getting depressed or upset. I just had a great, amazing day that day. I enjoyed life and all the small things. I want every day to be like that day. I know Travis wishes I was like that every day too.

I could use some change... a new outlook on life would be a great start. I don't really know where I am going with this post, other than to say, if you wonder why I have been extra crazy lately, dont fret, help is on the way!
