I found my wedding dress today! My mom and I drove to Spokane last night to go shopping with my sisters. It was an interesting/ tiring day. We first went to a store where my older sister had bought her dress a few years ago. The store's sign was still up and it looked like it was open, but when we got there and walked in it was a daycare center for the homeless! (Needless to say it wasnt in the best area). So we got the correct address and headed off. My sister was giving me directions, but with all the "one way" streets it made for an eventful search for the shop! We drove around downtown in circles for a while and we finally found a bridal store (but it wasnt what we were looking for!) I pulled up to a meter and we were sitting in the car looking for money when this man walked up and started asking if we had weed to sell or if we wanted to buy some... my sister was on the phone and her door was open but she was oblivious of what was going on. My mom is in the back seat yelling at her to close the door so this high homeless man would leave us alone! He finally left us alone and started walking down the street and was trying every car there to see if it was unlocked! (he apparently forgot that we were watching him, like we wouldnt call the cops if he broke into a car!) Anyways, that store ended up being under construction! (So far the search wasnt going well) To make a long day short, we went to Celestial Selections and i found a dress there! Its a 2 piece dress, the top is ruched on the bodice and the skirt is an "A" line skirt. Its really pretty! I wont get it for 12 weeks but im excited!!

Thats a lot harder then it sounds :) I want to post some pictures up here but Im not sure how to do that yet. I may have to ask if I can get a cd of them!

Finally! Chase and I have been dating for almost 3 1/2 years. The majority of that was spent long distance... which I don't recommend! In Oct. Chase moved back to Pasco to work with his band. Little did I know that there was another reason for the move! On Oct. 5 he was able to move into his apartment and he wanted me to have breakfast with him that next morning and spend the day together. Being the wonderful girlfriend that I am, I went bright and early! After we ate I went home to get ready to go to our favorite place. Olive Garden, Yum! Chase picked me up and when I got in the car he had an urge to go to the park. We went to Columbia Park and sat on a bench. He told me that he did something while he was in LA... Every time he says that I get a lump in my throat, he knows I hate it! He asked if I would be mad if it changes our relationship. As I'm getting ready to kill him he pulled out a little box and told me to open it! It was my ring and asked the question that I've been wanting to hear for so long, I think you can guess what that was :) He picked a good weekend to pop the question because most of my family was home! And they didn't know he was planning this! So it was a nice surpise for them. Now its time to start planning....!
