Classic Beauty

I didn't wake up early to watch the Royal wedding because I knew it would be all over the news. I did wake up a little earlier than usual to get a glimpse of the most important element; her dress. Once I saw it I immediately though of Grace Kelly. It's no surprise that she chose such a classic design from an amazing designer, but it's amazing how similar these dresses appear. Good choice, Kate.

Heather Morris. This white girl can dance and has a killer body I can only dream about.

I have been busy these past couple weeks and honestly feel like my year has started and will end this way. We have my family Easter celebration this weekend and my fiancee's family in town to celebrate his cousin's new home and recent engagement.

I have kept up with my Zumba, am still eating healthy and have lost over 10 pounds and several inches since January. Next month is my 10 year reunion and have to admit that I want to look my best, so I plan on adding an addtional workout to my weekly routine.

This same weekend we are taking our engagement pictures (finally) in downtown Houston, which is the site where my fiancee proposed. I want to take bridal portraits, but am wondering if I'll have the time. My dress was supposed to be ready this month, but have been notified that it will be more like May after it goes through customs. I still need to pick out bridesmaid dresses. I only have 2 bridesmaids, but our schedules have not been meshing well together to do so.

My mother and I made a impromtu trip and purchased her MOB dress and she is extremely happy with her choice. My dad is still in stiker-shock, but hey your only daughter's getting married!

We have been having issues with trying to secure the reception site and have it down as our main priority for this month. Hopefully we can have this major items checked off before the summer starts, so I can focus on the little stuff.

Everything else is coming along fine and I have to remind myself to take it all in and remain calm about the whole planning process. I want this to be a happy memory for us and to look back with no regrets.

Inviting Ways

Having issues deciding which path to take in determining our invitation design. I have been searching and am struggling to envision what I might want my invite to look like. I know exactly what I don't want and it's to not look like any other invitation I have seen. I think the end result will be a combination of all the visual elements I love.

My fiance is no help, because he is giving me the "whatever you like" response to everything. My mom has expressed that she wants it to be a reflection of our personalities and nothing less. I am sure I am over-stressing this process, but very much care about elements such as these. I am sure my mind will be right when I see what lovely ideas are to come my way. So excited!

I love everything about her. Her music, her style, her presence.

Pretty Pieces

I am on the hunt for an amazing head piece to compliment my dress. Feathers are a must and of course a hint of bling. These are lovely and are exactly the style I have been looking for.

Shower with Love

The future mom-in-law is planning my first shower for my family and we are going with a Spring motif. I am looking for inspiration everywhere and really wish I had the time to stay home and do some DIY bridal shower things, but I can only dream. I am in love with this tea party theme and the beautiful pastels. Also, anything with cupcakes is sure to win my heart.
