Sorry for the flurry of posts, but with two weeks left there is a lot going on! Things that have been in the works for a year are suddenly coming together!!!

First up, today I had a hair trial. Well, sort of a trial. My gal here did it and we took lots of photos. I''ll bring the pictures with me to Mexico and hopefully we can replicate it there. I asked to keep things very beachy and informal, loose so that if the wind blew it around it wouldn''t matter too much. We tried a few up-dos but none really seemed to work well with my hair. Sooooo, this is what we did.

From the back.

I''m a bit slow at this because I keep having to hide my computer when Ken comes over!

This is the top of the back. It is sort of a loose bun.

I''m trying to keep Ken away! Actually, I just picked up the computer and went into the bedroom to keep him from snooping.

Ok. So I love your highlights. And you''re always complaining about your hair and how much of a mess it is. I think it''s gorgeous. So shut up already.

Sorry, Ken decided that he would try and peek no matter where I hid. Not because he wants to see but because he wants to annoy the crap out of me. BAD boy!

And Freke - I love my highlights too. My gal is pricey but she does good work.
Although sometimes it seems like you are stalking me across the site. Maybe you are just trying to figure out where I get my hair done???

This is one of the few photos of me that I like!

I like pictures. So sue me.

Besides. I need wedding **** to get me over this stupid conversation with the dumb owner of the jewelry store I went to today.

Your eyebrows look much better btw.

And you look so sweet and innocent in that last pic. You really look more like this:

I hid my devil horns under the veil!

Ok, onto the dress shop. The alterations lady was soooo intimidated by my camera. She didn''t "get" that she had to look through the viewfinder and not at the screen on the back. Next time I know someone else will be using my camera I''ll bring my point and shoot, not the DSLR. So forgive my chopped off head! And by now I had removed all the fancy hairpins and shaken my hair out - this was two or three hours after the hair appointment.

Awwwwwwww, thanks. I''m sort of self conscious of my chubby arms, but I am in good shape (hello 20+ mile hikes in a single day) and I feel better in my body than ever.

Last photo. Right above where my hands are you can see there is a small line of beads. They go around the whole dress, and they match the beads I added to my veil. Speaking of the veil, I probably spent 15 or 20 hours working on it and I''m glad I "test drove" it today. I found a few places where the beads need some reinforcement so I can do that before we leave.

No matter what Ken says, the beading on the veil looks awesome. Want me to kick him (again) for you?

You guys are all so sweet! I''m blushing! I felt a bit narcissistic posting all these photos but decided to get over it and just post them.
