I’m back!

And I'm married!No matter how many times you hear people say "make sure to take it all in!!" You just can't.

Hair Trial

Well, [one] of the moments that all brides look forward to - hair trial - is done!  I went last night to FSIL's salon where her friend/coworker, Maria, was there to do my hair trial.  She's gonna venture up the night before to do my hair & my mom's hair the day of the wedding.  Of course FSIL and I had to live up to our name of "Bubbly Brides" and we had a bottle of champagne and mango juice to mix.
