The One.


We found it!

My dad and mom’s faces were priceless. I had already tried on several dresses before putting on The One, but as soon as I walked out into the bridal room with all the mirrors, we just knew. That was it. No words were really even said. I just looked back at my father through the full-length mirror in front of me and knew when I saw his face. We all got choked up, and my dad never cries. My assistant gave me the full look, with the veil and jewelry and we all just about lost it. Hugs. Tears. Kisses. I wish I could relive that moment a million more times again.

The dress takes me breath away. It’s got that WOW factor that I can’t even put into words. It’s elegant and sexy and feminine and perfect. I felt like the prettiest girl in the world when I was in it. Sigh :) I can’t wait to see the look on Weez’s face when he sees me walking down the isle…

All that gushy stuff being said, I’m so sorry, but I’m not going to send anyone a picture of the dress. It’s the one special thing that I truly want to keep secret and hold close to my heart, because I want Weez to see me in it first. It’s dorky and cheesy but it means a lot to me.

But oh man, I had to blog about it because I never want to forget that moment of our lives. It means the world to me that my dad and mom were there with me.

Okay! Back to running blog talk! I’ve got nothin’. Sorry runner buddies, I literally didn’t run at all over the weekend. We were crazy busy. If there was a record for hours of wedding planning crammed into one weekend, we would totally win it. We stayed up till 2 both nights working on things, but it was all so worth it. It’s really coming together!

I’ve got 18 miles on tap for Saturday so I’ll want to get a few solid base miles in this week before then. We’re in Boston crunch time! The peak of the training! I can’t believe Boston is only 4.5 weeks away!
