Let me start off saying that my mom has a platinum thrift-ing gene...

She can walk into any store any where and find the most stunning items....

So she went into the goodwill to look for a table cloth and found my dress...

She calls me on my cell to tell me she found a dress she thinks i will like...

I 'm like ok, take a picture and I will think about it......

As she is doing so three people come up to here and ask her for the dress. She says that she is waiting till she speaks with me before she decides against it.

Well needless to say it is perfect for me.... the embroidered flowers, princess bell bottom to hide my hips and it is in my size!!!

In the mean time the women are following my mom around the store as she shops so they can have first grabs at it. :lol:

So I look at the dress... find it on line and look at it in full detail and say yes! I call her up and tell her... while on the phone she tells the ladies that i am taking it and they can stop chasing her around the store! :cool:

So here is the dress.....

i just need to go to David's Bridal and get the slip....

The dress was only $250....

I can't believe how much it sells for brand new....

I also booked my photographer and appointments for my cake and caterers.... :lol:

I figure if i get it dine now I don't have to stress later about it
