My first IKEA experience..and then some

And boy was it an experience! We went this past Saturday. It was a mad house. I have never seen so many people in one store at one time! The store is huge!! I think I got lost a few times haha. So we spent about 2.5 hours at the store and we didn't even get through the whole top level! I had to work at 4 so we had to cut our trip short. I did end up getting a table, chair, lamp, shelf, picture frame, and bucket all for $100! It will go in my 'craft' room.Thanks to Andy for setting it all up for me=)

Also in other exciting news I have decided on a bridesmaid dress! Finally right! It is the one I originally liked. It just looked great on all the girls. I can't wait till they come in! Here is the dress on one of my bridesmaids Mollie:(it is strapless so ignore the straps) Barri Jay style #522

We also bought the groomsmen's suits as well. It was actually cheaper to buy them than to rent them. Plus a khaki suit will always come in handy. This is the picture from the website. Now we are working on finding some cool ties in brown.They are from JoS. A. Bank $125 each!! org. $300

Since I was on break from work this week I am happy I got some wedding stuff done! Next on the list, making the invites!

Who is that girl??

What much is there to say? With planning the wedding I have come across some wonderful blogs that have helped me though the planning. I also have come across some blogs about decoration the house and ways to save money. That got me thinking, I'm a good shopper, I save lots of money why not share it with other people that can possibly get ideas from me.

A little about myself. I am a sign language interpreter at a school. I also have a part time job at a department store (mostly for the discount and to not be bored!). I am getting married on September 6, 2008 to the most perfect man, Andy. We have a crazy, cute kitten named Carson-after Carson Palmer (think we like the Bengals?! WHO DEY!). I am looking forward to posting all about my savings and my life.
