New Sweetness

A new bakery just opened up around the corner from my office (bad idea) called Petite Sweets.  I have been fighting the urge to go inside, but my curiosity got the best of me and I ended up taking some co-workers to try it out today. A strawberry macaroni and a mini chocolate cupcake are sitting on my desk taunting me. I am trying to hold out until the end of the day to indulge or maybe just take home and share with my mom. My wedding dress better watch out.

In Love

I am in love with this short tiered tulle dress from (eh-um) David's Bridal. This place gives me a stomach ache and I try to stay away, but now I may change my attitude after finding this dress. This would be a great reception dress for Houston and Las Vegas except that it's out of my budget right now. Going to see if I can try and put aside some money and maybe purchase this gem later, especially since I may be getting 2 wears out of it. Might be worth it. Cross fingers.

Whole Lotta Stuff

Whew! As you can tell from the lack of posts, I am busy. Busy planning this wedding. Busy planning other events and everything else.

This past weekend I had my bachelorette party in Austin, TX and have to say it was amazing. I was surprised at how mellow I was the entire trip. I think it's because I have been going full speed for a while and haven't had time to rest. My girlfriends are awesome and put so much effort into this trip and truly made it memorable.

On the wedding front, we have received over 80 RSVPs thus officially making this a full fledged event. It has me re-thinking our cocktail reception, because this isn't exactly going to be as intimate as we first thought, but I am happy to see so many people coming to our big day.Thankfully, we have 3 months to go and everything major is done. Just awaiting the 2-month mark to start finalizing and taking care of the small tasks (like buying a bridcage veil I cannot find).

I am also planning my cousin's bachelorette party next month, who is getting married on September 23rd and having a party to celebrate the big day at my parent's house. I have also been asked by her mother (my aunt) to decorate which has me buzzing around looking for ideas (country chic, anyone?).

This week we have our retreat at St. Anne's as a last step in the marriage prep process and hopefully we can meet with the priest who will be marrying us soon. I am a mess in my head right now. Hopefully my afternoon workout will ease all of this and provide some clarity.
