Wedding shopping!

Today I tried on wedding dresses. Wow! That is crazy yet really exciting! I tried on some very simple yet elegant ones as well as big fru fru ones. I'm definitely a simple girl. I found one that I really like, but of course I'm gonna look around some more before I decide. We went into the Bridal shop on Celanese and got bombarded by this short chunky little Korean lady who said she used to design clothes for Brooke Shields. That lady was hilarious but after a while she gave me a headache. When I was trying on one dress I made the comment that I have no boobs, so her she comes "I've got some for you" and hands me some pads to stick in my bra. It was funny. Anyway, the dress I really like I found at the Bridal and Formal Gallery on Charlotte Ave. And the ladies there were extremely nice and helpful. So, I had a fun afternoon of wedding shopping with my mom.

You make me wanna la la

As always, I've had a lot going on lately. I've been pretty down but I'll manage. Matt is probably sick of me crying all the time. It seems that's all I do.

School is hardcore kicking my butt & I know the next two semesters are gonna kill me. I'm pondering the thought of staying at Winthrop an extra semester. It might make things a little easier for me. I don't know. All I know is I'm not so good at this college stuff. Can't I just runaway to Africa?

Last weekend I went to Columbia with my mom to keep Cameron & Devin. They are growing up to be some cuties! Every 30 seconds Devin would just call out my name...not wanting anything but just making me turn around and pay attention to him. I loved it...hearing his sweet little voice call out "Sarah". We went to EdVenture and had fun there (despite the fire drill). It was nice to spend time with those boys again...I still miss them.

Sunday Matt & I had nursery duty at church. Between bouncing, scooting, grinning, and pooping...we had a fun morning. I can't wait until I can have kids of my own (don't worry's not gonna be anytime soon).

I've had some hardcore smack in the face stuff happening in my life lately that has made me really think about my life. It disguists me that I am so freakin sinful and don't even care. I should care. Lately I have been living my life entirely around my feelings. I'm so selfish. I'm at one of those points where I want to change because I know I should want to change but then I really don't want to change. I'm comfortable with my life how it is and I know I shouldn't be. I guess we'll see what happens.

*Good news--the Roasting Co. is staying open due to the "overwhelming support of the community". Yay!
