Nordstrom makes my dreams come true

On Monday, after I wrote saying that there was no news on the dress, I decided to make some news. I pretty much had my mind set on dress #5. And then I panicked, thinking that if I didn't order dress #5 then, there was no chance I'd get it in time for when we leave next week. And I continued panicking thinking that there's no way that I was going to find a different dress around town. So, I decided to order it with the idea that I could return it if I found something else.

There was one teensy weensy problem though: the two Nordstroms I have access to don't carry that dress. And Nordstrom online would have to order the dress from their vendor and THEN ship it to me, which would mean I wouldn't get the dress in time. My situation looked bleak. I nearly started crying (not really, but it adds drama).

So, here's how Nordstrom made my dreams come true. They found one of their stores that had it and passed my information along to them. Nordstrom at the Houston Galleria shipped my dress to me. How special is that?

In the meantime, from Monday to yesterday when I received the dress, I was trying to convince myself that I was going to hate it, return it and move on with my life. We searched for alternates on Monday evening and found nothing.

Then yesterday was the day that changed my life. Dress #5 arrived, I tried it on and fell in love. Serious, deep, lasting, true love. So there's nothing I can do but hold on to this dress and make up excuses and reasons to wear it.

So there you have it. Thanks to your encouragement and support I decided to get the dress that the majority of you voted for. I'm a sucker for peer pressure.
