WE GOT THE WEDDING DRESS!!!!!!!

Hello everybody. We got the dress!!!!!!!:):):):) If you will remember, last October my daughter Jackie and I went looking at wedding dresses. We had already bought one at a ridiculously low price at David's Bridal, but then she had really fell in love with this Oleg Cassini dress that was out of our price range. I asked all of my blogger friends to pray for a miracle and we hoped it would go on sale but it didn't. Sooooo, I thought I'd check ebay on Saturday morning while all were a sleep and what do I find???? THEEEE Dress!. But, there is more. Includes Champagne Gown with Chapel Train, Slip, Shoes, Blusher, Tiera, Necklace, Bracelet, Earrings (never worn), purse (never used), and garters (never used still in package). We got this incredible deal for what you ask??? The low price of $550.00. My daughter and I were on the phone with each other watching the count down while my dear husband was pressing the refresh button to where I thought it was going to break. lol You should have heard us or rather me, yelling WE WON, WE WON! I LOVE a deal and I LOVE that no one else outbid me.

Wow! Super amazing! She is not only going to look beautiful, but also she is going to have a story to tell for the rest of her life (and will probably have to explain to grandkids what "Ebay" and "refresh" are!!)

I remember when we were looking for a nintendo console for the children online but everyone we tried for went over our price limit or got outbidded at the last minute. The day we won, The children and I were waiting impatiently while Steve refreshed and refreshed and then put a bid in at the last minute. We were so excited to have won that everyone started yelling. I can just imagine what it must have been like for you too Melody. This is such an exciting thing to win.

by the way I emailed this onto my friend whose daughter is getting married in October, as she is looking for five bridesmaids dresses and only wants to spend $100 on each of them. She is looking for them in brown, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

WOWEE!

I'm so sorry I didn't check your blog earlier....I was one of those praying for you to get this dress at a low price! Since last year when you first posted it! The dress looks even more divine, this second time seeing it. It is an absolutely heavenly confection and your daughter is going to be the most beautiful bride. I am so happy for you and your daughter! Prayer really works!!

Loooove this dress and shoes! Your daughter is beautiful! She's going to be a terrific bride.
I have seen many dresses (I worked in the Wedding Industry for a while), very few with this charm.
Warmest wishes,
