say yes to the dress.

11 12 2010

Say Yes to the Dress is a popular bridal show on TLC (don’t ask me how I know that) about the intensity of selecting a wedding dress!

Luckily there was no intensity involved in our dress shopping for Kourtney’s dress today.

We went to about four different places and tried on about a dozen or so dresses. I filmed each one an sent the video clip to Mom so she could see (gotta love the iPhone).

Kourtney is a small girl, so a few of these dresses almost completely enveloped her and made her look like a snowman!

I’m not sure anything was officially decided on, but I think we narrowed the number down to a few. Once we’ve got a winner, I’ll post a pic!

It was great to spend some more time with Jake (the fiance) as well.
It’s hard to believe that everyone has grown up so much.

Sometimes I think it would be great if we could just all live together or near each other again.

? Do you want to live near family, or away from family?


grocery shopping.

Leah is living in our future apartment right now. She is all moved in and pretty much just organizing stuff now. It’s nice that all of the moving will be done before we even get married. (my stuff will get moved in when she leaves for AZ)

Tonight it was time to fill the fridge and cupboards.

This was our first trip to the grocery store!

Think long and hard about your first grocery store trip with your spouse to buy REAL groceries.

Each of you may have had slightly different grocery experiences in the past.

Leah and I come from different schools of thought.

Kyle: Can, I get Sunchips? It’s like 2-3 meals.
Leah: Sunchips are not a meal.
Kyle: I don’t understand, I’ve had them for dinner before and even lunch, or even at 11:20 pm when I’m trying to go to bed.

Yeah, this conversation ended with me being allowed to get a bag of the mini bags of Sunchips so that Leah could limit my intake.

It was very interesting. I am used to corn dogs, cran-grape juice and sour patch kids. Leah is used to Lean cuisine and Simply Lemonade.

I felt like a lawyer at times trying to win a case. Imagine pleading for justice on behalf of your client; Whole Milk. It’s a difficult case to win. Each item was a new case with new arguments. We each had some victories and defeats.

Overall I feel like we both were able to see a few of our clients be found free to enter the fridge!

I should just be grateful I have a grocery store with all of the options. It used to be that you just went out into the forest, hoped for the best and came back with whatever you could get!

“And it came to pass that I did slay wild beasts, insomuch that I did obtain food for our families.” (1 Nephi 16:31)

? What groceries do you like that your spouse won’t let you get?
