Friday, February 7 – It was a CRAZY Thursday evening trying to get Kelly and Dave out of Ohio. Due to the weather, their flight was delayed for hours. But finally our daughter, Kelly, and fiancé, Dave, landed in Houston shortly around 1:00 a.m.

On Friday, the girls went wedding dress shopping, and Paul took Dave to see some Houston sights! Marsha had scheduled several wedding shops to visit. Before Kelly arrived, we drove around and checked them out to save time. Marsha then setup appointments. The girls were are off on a mission to find the perfect dress! Good Luck girls!

Well, they did it! Found the perfect wedding dress for Kelly. Kelly found her dress at the first shop. They kept their second appointment just to be sure. After trying on a few dresses at the second shop, Kelly knew the one at Marry Go Round was the one for her. Marsha took tons of photos but at this time can’t publish any of them. Of course, we all know it would be bad luck for Dave to see her in it before the big day.

The girls had tons of fun looking for the “perfect” dress.

Only had to go to two places before she said Yes to the dress!Kelly dress shopping.

Dave and Paul had a good time driving, riding the light rail and walking around Houston. We all met back at Carrie's apartment and went out for a late lunch.

Then it was off to the Wild West Saloon for some dancing, people watching, meeting up with friends and enjoying some adult beverages. We had a great time. We called it quits just before mid-night. The kids continued to party on.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!


  1. Maybe there will another wedding in the future with Carrie? I say "yes" to the dress even though I can't see it yet.

  2. Looks like Paul's Arthur Murray lessons are paying off. I see lot of smiles, looks like happy times.

  3. I can't believe she found her dress that easily. I would think her problem would be that she looks fabulous in all of them. Fun times.

  4. What a great time!! So cool that you all went out it:)

    I am sure the dress is beautiful. The sisters sure were having fun:)

  5. Can't wait to see the dress ... I'm sure she will look beautiful wearing it.

  6. Getting the right dress early sure takes the pressure off the wedding plans alright! Congrats!

  7. I always shop with the "you'll know it when you see it" theory. It works most of the time.

    BTW - Say Yes to the Dress is my guilty pleasure but I haven't seen it for quite a while.

  8. Exciting times! I think the dress is going to be gorgeous! Wedding plans are so fun. An early delivery of the dress makes it possible to be sure it is well made and the right dress!

  9. That was a pretty good deal finding the dress at the first shop.

  10. Glad to see everyone having such a good time together. Such fun for Marsha to help with the wedding plans. Enjoy.

  11. Oh what fun!!!! Can't wait to see that dress...I am sure it is just beautiful!!! :-)
    You guys are just having tons of fun!!

  12. Looks like a fun and successful day. Keep on dancing :-)

  13. Jo watches all the 'Say Yes to the Dress' variants and can't wait for the results of the Houston edition.

  14. Sounds like a very rewarding day and a great way to end it, dancing until midnight. :)


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
