Well, previously I mentioned my daughter was getting married. Yesterday we went looking for a wedding dress. We had done this earlier, and she found something she thought she liked. This time though, Grandma came too. The first dress she tried on was really beautiful and I didn't think she would like it because it was covered in lace. The second dress was the one she liked the best last time. She really didn't like it at all this time. After trying on about 10 dresses, she ended up with the one she tried on first. It really looks beautiful on her and I couldn't stop crying. Since this was a trunk show for a specific designer, he happened to be there. He took a picture with her wearing the dress, and even drew a picture of the dress for her and signed it. He was so nice. I can't divulge too much because she doesn't want anyone looking up his name and trying to guess which gown she chose.

She is on cloud 9 and her happiness is contagious. Things are coming along slowly but surely. I am sure it will be October 2010 before I know it. I am just worried that I won't be able to contain myself that day. I am so happy for her, especially that she is so happy.

Summer's Here?

I can't believe the last time I posted was February 4th and it was snowing, like every other day. Well, since then we had so much rain during the spring it was unbelievable.

Well, I guess the reason I didn't post was that nothing was really going on. My dad is still going strong. He says every day that he is worse than yesterday but really, for his age he is amazing. He is in alot of pain because of the arthritis, but other than that, he really is good. My mom is what worries me because she does everything for him and since they live with my brother, his wife and their kids, she does alot for them too. She tries to make up to them because she feels she is in the way. I look at it like they are both making out. They are not alone and the kids get alot of grandmom and grandpop time.

I have been knitting up a storm though. I made a few baby dresses that came out so cute, a Philly Phanatic doll for my niece who is turning 27 years old but loves the Phillies. I have made quite a few socks which I test knitted for Laura at the Unique Sheep and best of all, I got to meet Laura at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. I went with two friends from work and it was a blast. It was everything everyone said it would be and more. I can't wait to go again next year.

Well, hopefully I will be posting more now that my daughter got engaged and I will have stuff to write about. She is so excited and has made plans to get married on 10-10-10. Cute date right?

Till next time, Anna Marie
