Bridal Tidal Wave: Part 2

I'd liken the planning process to a hurricane that keeps
getting downgraded to a tropical storm.  There is so much to do
but just when you think you might be overwhelmed, things
start to calm down.  We're about 7 months out
and we've got a lot going on right now.

This is the time where you need to get all of your vendors
lined up, and we're pretty close to having that completed.
We have a meeting with the florist next week, I scheduled a hair/
make up trial for the beginning of April, and I have my first dress
fitting next Wednesday.

Through all of the appointments, meetings, deposits, and fittings I've been trying
to constantly remind myself that even though this is a very special day, it is still only
one day.  Everything will fall into place, so there is no need to go crazy over it.

If you're wondering if this post has a general point, it doesn't.
It's my weird way of getting my thoughts in order.  It's hard to
write concise blogs about something that you're in the middle of.
So, I'm sorry if it seems like a jumble.
In the words of Hedley Lamarr "My mind is aglow with whirling,
transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention"
this is where you just say "Ditto".

Further Exploration

The fiance and I are not fans of  St. Paddy's Day.
We avoided the masses by heading out to Flushing
and checking out some new food spots.  One of the most
magical things about Flushing is that every time you visit,
you discover something new.

We were following a new guide and this is what we had:

Fried Dumplings ($1.25)

 A plate of a potato/chili salad and spicy tofu  ($3.00)

 Our favorite, Mt Qi Pork Noodles ($6.00)

 Spicy Wontons ($4.50)

We also discovered the food court mecca that is the
lower level of the New World Mall. You could devote an entire day
to eating there and still not be able to try every place. It was amazing!
We were pretty full by the time we got there so I only picked up Mango Pancakes
($4.00) from a place called Beautiful Memory Desserts.  (With a name like that
how can you resist!?) And a Passion Fruit Tea ($2.50)  from a place called Snopo,
which specializes in Snowy- a fluffy looking ice cream with fun toppings.

Flushing is always a good time.

New Shooz

Yesterday I received not one, but TWO pairs of shoes in the mail.
This is big, because I rarely buy shoes.

This pair is for the wedding. Simple, gold,
and less than $70. jackpot.

These are what I'm really excited about.
Golden glittery cheetah explosion.
(many thanks to CarlyValentine for scouting these out)
