Measurements, Creativity, & Comfortableness

I went to the appointment last night to get my measurements done. I was very thankful that I could keep all of my clothes on. Last time I was measured, it was for my wedding since my dress was handmade. I had to strip down to my underwear and bra. Back then, it wasn't a big deal. You can imagine my panic when I had to go to this fitting being heavier getting measured by someone I have never met. What a huge relief that I got to stay dressed!

Got to say that I love Jenny's Aunt. She is the one who is making the dresses. She loves watching HGTV and What Not to Wear....LOVE THOSE SHOWS! And, she sometimes is a wedding planner for people at her church. I have always thought about being a wedding planner. While we were at her house, I was able to see pictures of things she has created. She makes flower arrangements, dresses, decorations and this really beautiful box that looks like a cake. She makes this box as a card holder. Very nice!! (Did I mention that her sewing room is one of my favorite color greens! BEAUTIFUL!) We laughed, talked about family, kids, etc. I really felt comfortable with her. Luckily I am able to read people very well. Not once did I feel uncomfortable. I love her ideas that she shared about the wedding. And, she had me even more excited to see the dresses and be in this wedding....not that I wasn't already! One really nice thing is now I have another new customer for my store. YEAH!

What I am thankful for today:
meeting new people
open mindedness
staying dressed
creative people
new customers
repeat customers
being a bridesmaid for the 7th time!!
