My Everest

Dearest reader, I have some good news and some bad news. Which would you like to hear first...

The good news, did you say? Well alright then, you're the boss.

On March 21st, I'm marrying this guy:

Yikes! Maybe he isn't making the best impression. Let's try that again...

OK, still a little weird. I guess he's just a little shy of strangers. Let's give him one more try...

Aww, that's better. Say hi to Cameron--you may remember him from such posts as Thanks for your concern, Time Out, and that old favorite Singing Solves Everything, Part Two. Oh, and say hi to Caroline, too (she's just hangin'). So maybe we're a little slouchy, but we're in love and hope you will all see fit to share in our joy despite our poor posture. Now for the bad news...

I have to purchase a wedding dress. THIS IS MY EVEREST. There is so much I could tell you about the many horrors I've been subjected to during my brief foray into the bridal industry---it's cold, it's sheeny (not shiny--shiny is good, sheeny is very very bad), it's self-entitled, and most of all it's overpriced---but as I have come to find there are many, many, MANY blogs dedicated to these subjects alone, I will spare you and instead share the one bright light in the mists. Behold:

I could get married in Alexis Carrington's wedding dress. OMH!

Oh happy!! I'm so glad you're marrying your Cameron! I'm just not sure I want him holding my babies.

Not to brag, but my wedding dress - and I'm not joking - was $30 from the Salvation Army. Incluing veil.

Amy said...

Congratulations Courtney!!! I'm so very happy for you!

This is outstanding news! (The good news part, that is.) I am exceedingly glad for you! And very sorry you have to endure the dress shopping thing. But, you have impeccable Courtney style, so I am sure you will track down something that makes you smile.

If you have a party around the bay area, you won't forget your friend in cow town, will you?

Cindy said...

I was so happy to read your blog and hear of your wonderful news. Sending TONS of love!

Brecken said...

court....you really kill me. You're beautiful and so will look so in a gown! I"m very excited for Cameron, he's getting quite a great girl. See you in March!

Ryan said...

congrats!

Rachel said...

Oh please, please, PLEASE, get the Alexis dress.

And congratulations. I'm bursting with joy for you.

He looks like a keeper to me! Congrats! Good luck with the dress.

Amy said...

Man, I called you back after I got your message and your phone rang and rang and then said that you didn't have voicemail set up so I couldn't leave a message, but I hoped you would see my missed call. Cynda had the same issue. BUT I'M SOOOO FREAKIN' HAPPY FOR YOU. Try calling me again. I swear I'll be by my phone this time. :-)

Niles said...

Will you still be all of our bird, or only Cameron's? What will become of this blog?

There I go, thinking selfishly. Congratulations Courtney!

Also: you live in LA. Isn't there a reality TV show from "The Bride Channel" that will pay to film your hunt for the perfect, non-glam, eclectic Courtney dress?

Mackenzie said...

You can even get Alexis Carrington's wedding dress with the original dirt and grass stains. OMH!

alisa said...

Tiffany said...

yay!! congrats again. following in the wedding dress footsteps of alexis carrington is absolutely the way to go. the fug girls would be so proud.

Renee said...

You absolutely must get that dress...or one that looks eerily similar to it. Ok, not eerily, it is a wedding afterall. But perhaps, strikingly similar. I love it and think it's perfect!! Congrats again!! I'm thrilled to pieces!!

P.S. I'm snowed in...call me if you're not at work or can talk :)

Kami said...

Congratulations!!!! This is the best news ever, I'm so happy for you! Cameron seemed like such a great guy when I met him at Rachel's wedding! The dress is awesome, but not as awesome as the hat with the veil, I think you should do it!

alisa said...

oh my, i just noticed the OMH---he he he he he. and yes, get the dress.

Sarah said...

dude, i kinda dig the alexis carrington dress. not the hat/veil, of course -- that looks ridiculous. almost like she lopped off the top of one of my hydrangeas and affixed it to her hat.

but the dress... that's a go.

Ted said...

Congratulations! I guess it's appropriate that I'd here this through your blog. Oh, the wedding dress - I remember that pain, and I didn't even have to find it, get fitted for it or buy it.

Amanda said...

Congrats! So happy for you. Good luck in the search for the perfect dress.

MaMaMaMandy said...

I can't remember (that is my baby brain talking) if I ever congratulated you- but none-the-less- I am so happy for you! He is a handsome devil! :)
