Weekend Recap

Congrats to the winner of the Mr. and Mrs. Wooden Wedding Sign: Bernadine!

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday morning!  I am co-hosting with Bella from Dateless in Dallas for our Weekend Recap! 

Oh my gosh, so my friend last week sends me this e-mail.  I remember seeing something similar last year around my girlfriends wedding, but people are still doing it:
 Let's just say I promise you will NOT be seeing us do this. Ha!
But enjoy a little laugh this morning!

Last week I took in my dress for its final preparation!  What they do is press your dress to make it look absolutely perfect!  I will pick it up in a few weeks!

Friday evening I worked on some wedding planning. Can you believe our wedding is now only 12 days away!  Insane!  I already started packing for the wedding, getting things put together in boxes, organizing and whatnot.
  It was a very productive Friday for me!  I needed it!

Saturday was my girlfriends baby shower.  I spent the morning cleaning up and organizing my wedding planner so it didn't look like chaos, and then got ready for the day.  Her shower started around 2 pm and I arrived shortly after.  It was such a cute theme--Welcome to the Jungle.  So adorable.  This wasn't any ordinary shower.  It was co-ed so there was a keg of course and plenty of booze.  The best part- she had a taco guy.  Most amazing thing ever!  Always my favorite.  I am pretty sure I consumed about twenty tacos.  So bomb.  We ended up leaving around 10:30.. yea.. have you ever been to a baby shower and stayed over 8 hours? That's what happens when booze is involved.  We went home and crashed.

This was the best photo he took... yea.. whats with guys hating photos?

Sunday I ran some errands with my mom.  We found a guestbook pen and grabbed breakfast.  We also found out the people moved out of our home we just bought-- which means we can move in-- of course after we clean and check it out!  so excited!

Weekend Recap

Showered With Design

Hey all! Hope you had the most wonderful weekend! I co-hosting yet another weekend recap with the fabulous Bella from Dateless in Dallas.  I had a pretty eventful weekend for once.

Friday my fiance, myself, and one of his friends started our night downtown.  We ordered nachos and had a few beers until my girlfriend met up with us. We had too much fun! I had to leave my car in the parking structure until we sobered up- so we came at 5am to grab my car and head home!


Saturday I slept in till eleven.  It felt so good to sleep in for once!  I got my swim suit on to lay out.  I ended up falling asleep and getting slightly burned! That's what I get! (My sweet parents dog pictured) I ended up showering after a few hours to get ready for the night.  I went out with my girlfriends from high school.  We had too much fun getting the usual BJ's restaurant, and shop at a cute clothing store, and of course beers were in the mix!  We were pretty mellow and ended the night early. Which I needed since I was hungover.

Sunday I went with my mom to whole foods.  *Cue Whole Foods Song*  

We literally spent 2 hours in there, trying to figure out what we should get for dinner.  Ladies, do not- I repeat- do NOT go hungry!  Toughest decision we have had to make in a long time.  We finally decided on marinated kabobs, au gratin potatoes, and asparagus.  So delicious.  We also stopped by Trader Joes. Another fav!  My mom and I grabbed some lunch too and head home.  Later on we BBQ'd the Kabobs and have a few Coronas and watched a few movies that were on TV.  Another mellow day, but such a fabulous weekend.

How did you spend your weekend?

19 more days till the big day!! COUNTDOWN!
