"Go Go Go"

Jess came in this weekend to get the bridesmaid's dresses for her wedding.  All the girls met to try on the dresses, and it was a fun time for Jess.   She found this bouquet of flowers at Michaels to give to her flower girl, and she made a cute tag and attached it with a ribbon.  I made a big dish of lasagna, which was Yummy, and had cinnamon rolls with orange icing for dessert.  There's not a lot of good shops in Jess' area, so she wanted to do some shopping while she was here.   Now, I have a soft spot for cloth dolls, and when I found this unicorn at Target, I had to get it.  Her hair is funky with a big braid in back.  Nel used to love unicorns when she was little, and I used to read a book about unicorns to her all the time.  We had a fun weekend, and Jess got a lot done with her bridal plans.
Our minds said, "go go go,"
but our feet said,
"let's stop and rest."

The unicorn is precious. What is the red dress?????

So glad you got lots of things done, in wedding prep. :-)

From where the calendar says Spring,
but the snow is blowing/falling down!

Wonderful post Sheri! Thanks for sharing some of your behind the scenes wedding prep with us! Gorgeous dress, wow that color! What lovely memories you are making!

Weddings are always exciting , even more so when the bridesmaid is the sister of the bride.
Can't wait to see all the dresses. Is the red, maybe 'the mother of the bride' dress ?

Sounds like you had a delightful weekend picking out bridesmaids dresses. Did you get yours or is the pretty red dress yours? Sounds like you all had a great time.

How cute to ask the little girl to be the flower girl.

Have a wonderful week.

Hope your yellow rose is doing better.

The countdown is ON! Sheri, where has the time gone? Already she is getting married??

I know the feeling about GO GO GO. I love coming home, aching feet, hungry stomach, tired eyes. We do this all the time and it makes coming home all the more pleasing.

I LOVE THAT UNICORN! I saw him at Target this weekend!

Enjoy another day of planning and fun dear friend. Anita

Teresa said...

Yay! Lovely and fun-filled times ahead!!!
So well deserved. Enjoy!
I love all the colors in this post so I'm sure the event will turn out not only lovely and loving but full of whimsy and elegance.
I love the Unicorn! Cute and lovely and just the "thing" for you to find in these times of happiness, hope and love and princely metiers.
Have Fun!

I love this little Unicorn and my oldest daughter loved them too.
All three of my girls are married now and now your two both will be.
It's a bittersweet time for you, I remember those feelings well.
So happy for them and the joy of the preparations.
I just bet that the lasagna was delicious!
Pretty everything, Sheri, my dear.
This dress, is it yours??? Love the color:)

Oh-oh, not sure where comment went, but I'll try again.
Teary-eyed reading your posts today, reminded of all the magic I lived last year with my daughter. Goes by so fast.
Love the red dress, and the bouquet.
And yes, now I'm hungry for lasagna. :)

Hi Sheri,
I'm stopping back by because I had a feeling my previous comment didn't go through. Just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying the stories of you and the girls and wedding planning. This is such a happy time. Even if there are moments of stress, here and there, these are memories for a lifetime. That nosegay is so sweet. I'm sure the lasagne was delicious--yummy!
Happy weekend my darling friend!
