the big 2-9

So, I am currently one year away from no longer being twenty-something. I was reading THIS BLOG and thought maybe I'd like to have a thirty things before I'm 30 list, but I am not sure exactly what I would do. If I come up with something, I'll post it. Happy Spring Break 
PS February was AWFUL for the no spending budget. With winter sport pictures, spring sport sign ups, spring sports gear, and gas at $3.50 a gallon,  I spent a whopping $444! Yikes!

At first I was totally bummed that I would be shopping for my wedding dress with just my daughters. Don't get me wrong that would still be fun, and my daughter and I have very similar tastes, but wedding dress shopping almost REQUIRES at least one good friend or mother. 
Well, my prayers have been answered. My good friend Gini, whom I've known since junior high just moved to Austin! Bonus=my good friend Ashley is moving to Austin in the fall! Zoinks! Double bonus=THEY ARE BOTH BRIDESMAIDS! Triple bonus=The dress shop I want to go to (because they carry the designer I like) IS IN AUSTIN!!!!! How well did that fall together? :) 
For the dress: I am going with a vintage designer because I want a dress that covers my breasts. I have this huge set in stone feeling to not have my boobs showing in front of my father. I have always been that way, so I don't want to be doing the father/daughter dance with mile high cleavage (not that they are that big but you get the idea).
