Wedding: trying on dresses

Wedding dress round 1: the favorite

So this is the dress that's currently the favorite. I tried it on this weekend over at David's Bridal and I really loved it, but I'm still not 100% sold. In addition there were two others that I liked because they were similar and just as elegant but simple. Photos are up on flickr if you're interested. I really do love the rouching along the front though. Gives it something extra without it being too much.

I just can't consider myself sold yet though because I want to try on something closer to the style of dress that I posted earlier when I was thinking about ideas. They didn't have a huge selection at David's in the giant size the woman made me try on so I had a hard time finding something that was a strapless dress. Hoepefully I'll try another place or two and find something else I like. Or I'll just go with this.

I do know that I don't want more dress than there is bride and I do know that I'm pretty sure I don't want a train. I really loved the two dresses I put on without one and I think that might be the best direction to go in.

Tuesday Mosaic - Revolution

1. VIVE LA RÉVOLUTION, 2. Projekt Revolution 8/1/08, 3. revolution is coming, 4. Portrait of a revolution..., 5. revolution, 6. dreams are revolutions., 7. shirt_revolution, 8. revolution [EXPLORE!], 9. revolution

I'm not sure why I picked "revolution" as this Tuesday's theme, but when I got on flickr with the intent of searching for something inspirational, the word just popped into my head. I think it works though.

The official definition for "revolution" is:
1. an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed.

2. Sociology. a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure, esp. one made suddenly and often accompanied by violence.

3. a sudden, complete or marked change in something: the present revolution in church architecture.

4. a procedure or course, as if in a circuit, back to a starting point.

5. a single turn of this kind.

6. Mechanics.
a. a turning round or rotating, as on an axis.
b. a moving in a circular or curving course, as about a central point.
c. a single cycle in such a course.

7. Astronomy.
a. (not in technical use) rotation (def. 2).
b. the orbiting of one heavenly body around another.
c. a single course of such movement.

8. a round or cycle of events in time or a recurring period of time.

I love words that mean more than one thing. A revolution is both a turn around something, say a revolution around the sun (a year) and a drastic change in society, say the American Revolution. We are currently living in trying times, but in the same breath life is exciting because so many things are changing: our government, the way we live, technology, education and more.

So what's your revolution going to be for?
