Cakes and Alterations

I'm in Little Rock today doing some wedding planning. Every time I leave somewhere after discussing wedding plans I feel the need to go home and take a nap. Mom says it's because my brain gets so stressed trying to pick and choose every last detail of every single thing. I guess so.
Today I met with my cake lady. The cake has been the hardest thing for me. I've looked at Ricks, Mickey's in LR,, and countless magazine pictures and haven't liked anything I've seen. I don't know what I'm looking for and I don't have anything in mind but nothing blows me away. I felt sorry for my cake lady because I don't feel like I gave her any direction whatsoever. I just showed her some pictures I liked, told her the idea I was going for, and with a confused look on her face she told me she would draw some stuff out and email them to me. Works for me! While trying to decide what my cake looked like was difficult, the cake testing was super easy! Yum O! I know what flavor of cake I want. I'm excited.
After my meeting with the cake lady, I drove to the seamstress to have my dress altered. And when I say altered all it needed was hemming. Okay so just a hem, shouldn't cost that much right? WRONG. It was $195! Let me say it again. ONE HUNDRED NINETY FIVE DOLLARS!! To fix a hem?? I guess I'm confused as I was thinking $40. I was tempted to tell her never mind, that my 8th grade home ec teacher, Mrs Nixon, taught me how to sew and I could do it myself but whatev.
Saturday was fun wedding planning though. I drove to El Dorado to register. El Do doesn't have a Dillards but we have a few stores that carry the same china as Dillards so everyone goes there to register and buy gifts.
While I was in El Dorado I visited my Mimi. Bless her heart she just doesn't know what to do with herself since my grandpa died in March. I feel sorry for her. She'll cry just talking about him. It breaks my heart. They were married for 61 years! Mimi tickles me though. She's in her early 80's and can't remember anything. She asked me 5 times if I had a boyfriend, what he does, when my wedding was, and how many bridesmaids I'm having. I know I'll be just like that when I'm her age because I'm full blooded Luttrell. Not looking forward to it...
