Vow renewal plans

I've been working on the details of our vow renewal coming up in a couple months, and I'm getting really excited about it all. It turns out, there's a possibility we could actually do it in the Penn & Teller Theater, which would be AMAZING. I'm waiting to hear back about that. Emily (Penn's wife) offered it as a choice, and when I jumped at it, she wrote back that she hadn't actually got Penn's permission yet, lol. Oops.

I have to crack down on finding a dress. I found two at Modcloth I really like, but I'm convinced on either of them. This one is simple and elegant, but my size isn't available, which would mean getting it tailored. I'm not 100% sure that's possible with the way the dress is done. This one is pretty and colorful, but Alex doesn't like it, and I'm still not convinced I want to go sleeveless. I hate my arms so much, so I would much prefer something to cover them, but most of the dresses I've looked at so far that have sleeves look too matronly. Or they're black. And we had a black and white wedding the first time around so I'd really like some color this time. There were some at Macy's and Nordstrom's I liked--this peach lace, or green lace, or purple lace, or simple and red, or simple and green--but again, I'm not ohmigod about any of them yet.

I begged my mom to come, and I think she might actually do it. My niece turns 21 in August, and she said it would be a good birthday present for her if she came along. I love that idea. Courtney was the flower girl at our wedding. I'd love it if she could come along for this.

So many decisions. But it'll be worth it in the end.
