On thursday I had received an e-mail from UPS telling me to expect my dress on Friday! This was much sooner than I had originally planned to have it come in so the news made me extremely happy. Now, UPS and I have gone round and round in the past about "expected delivery dates" so I wasn't going to hold my breath for too long. Then around 4 on Friday afternoon I got another e-mail saying that the Bryan UPS man had it out for delivery! yay! Well I had planned on going to Frost for the weekend after I got off work at 5, and so when the package still wasn't delivered by around 5:30 I was starting to get impatient (I know it's hard for you to believe that LBMM gets impatient) But anyways, after calling Bryan UPS I found out that it is not possible to track a UPS man. So I would have to wait. I was very sad when it became 7:30 and my dress had still not arrived, so I decided that I could not wait any longer because I had a 2.5 hour drive ahead of me. Then as I was getting ready to leave, I received a bit of false hope---a UPS truck was making a delivery on our street AND THEN HE LEFT!!!! I figured that was my last hope for seeing my dress so I told my roommate Kinsey to call me if they dropped it off and just let me know if it came in. I wasn't even 5 miles outside of Bryan before he called and said it had been delivered! So of course I had to drive back and get it! I was just too close!
The first thing I did when I got back to Frost was of course put the dress on! And then what happens?? IT FALLS OFF! It was the right size and everything, I had even tried on that size before I ordered it. But when I get stressed, (Finals time anyone??) I lose weight. 8 pounds of weight to be exact. Of course that doesn't happen when it's time to put that swimsuit on every year, but when I have to fit into a dress? You bet! So, I will not only be getting my dress shortened (that was a given) I will also be having to take it in!
And now, here is a sneak peek of my dress!
I don't want to show the whole thing because I want it to be a semi-surprise for Taylor at Ring Dance--which is now only 17 days away! And May is now here so that makes it seem even closer. Hopefully finals and work will make the time go by faster. :)
