Wedding day haul and interesting home sick emotions

Random aisle in Sam Moon
Sam Moon, where have you been all my life?? I experienced Sam Moon for the first time this weekend for a wedding day haul, and boy was it an overwhelming experience.  I have never seen so many accessories in one place!  There is stuff EVERYWHERE!  Of course, where there is nice and inexpensive stuff there are LOTS of people!  Walking around this store trying to search for accessories for my bridesmaids was quite the task.  I am happy to report that the trip was a success!  I found the broach, earrings, and bracelet that I will gift my bridesmaids to wear on our big day.  I also found the earrings and bracelet I will wear :) #thingsjustgotreal #weddingaccessoriescheckedoffthelist

So I have to be honest about something.  This wedding day haul brought on some interesting emotions.  For those of you who don't know, the fiance and I recently relocated from St. Louis to Dallas last year.  Moving to Dallas has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am usually nothing but happy about living here.  But going on wedding day hauls without my mom and wedding party is HARD :(  Sifting through the aisles of Sam Moon yesterday, I felt so alone.  I had no one to ask for an opinion, no one to laugh and smile with me, and no one to enjoy the moment with.  It was a sad feeling and moments like those are the only moments I ever get home sick.  I always imagined planning my wedding and going on wedding day shopping trips with my best buds in tow.

I am happy to report that I survived so no need to ship the Kleenex.  When I came back home to the great man I am about to marry.....to our great life together.....everything was put back into perspective.  But I would be lying if I said that planning a wedding long distance away from your family wasn't hard.  It truly can flat out suck sometimes.  But it's life, it's not going to be perfect :)

Until next time......
