Hi, remember me? And my wedding? Well, I finally kick my recaps off! So here we go!
Spending the night before the wedding with my two favorite ladies in a hotel was, for sure, one of the best wedding related decisions we made. It felt great to spend some time just laughing and hanging out with the girls... I almost forget that I was getting married the next day! It really helped me stay calm and relaxed.
The girls and I went to bed around midnight. I fell asleep immediately and slept until the alarm rang in the morning. After having a delicious breakfast, we were ready for the transformation from "It’s Morning Already?" to "Hellooooo, Bride!"
I stumbled upon these Hammerpressnotecard books at Francesca's on Sunday. They're so cute! The patterns are great and even the envelopes are nice. This would be a great collection to have on hand for sending impromptu greetings.
My sister-in-law has a bun in the oven. Her shower is in a few weeks and the invitations are out, but Minted has so many wonderful options for cool, easy-on-the-baby-overdose baby shower invitations. Any of these would have been a great Plan B.
These last two are my favorites:
Wait until you see the invitations that I made for my SIL's shower. I'm almost disappointed in myself. They're that "cute."
I've had a $50 gift certificate from Anthropologie burning a hole in my pocket since my birthday. I finally had brunch plans yesterday that put me right next to an Anthropologie. I excitedly picked out my "free" gift only to arrive at the counter and realize that I had left my gift card at home! Fate was telling me to lay off the bling and save my free pennies for fun summer clothes.
I was buying this necklace:
But there was so much temptation! I'm glad that my local store didn't have any of these, as I would have been in a quandary for sure.
Andy had seen them the day before, so it happened over night. And, even worse, I was pulling an all-nighter that night while I fought with our busted printer, (Another Thing that Blows: HP) so I was up while evil thieves lurked three floors below taking my stuff. And, of course, my bike was practically brand new! It had only been ridden maybe two dozen times.
Thievery angers me to no end. But the people that purchase the hot loot chap my hide even more. You are evil, evil people that encourage bad behavior. And I hope that you fall off of my bike or maybe get clothes-lined by some douche bag getting out of his car while talking on his cell phone. As for the thief:
I say we kill him! Yeah! I say we hang him, then we kill him! Yeah! I say we stomp him! Yeah! Then we tattoo him! Yeah! Then we hang him! YEAH! And THEN we kill him!
P.S. I hope that my new bike has a basket (and even more hopefully, this one! I kind of want it to buy it "just in case" so it will be ready for my new bike.).
...aren't enough motivation to lose weight, go for a demonstration of a Sleep Number Bed. Seriously, how big does my stuff look under the scrutiny of their PressureMap Technology? I'm never eating again.
BTW, I must find away to afford this bed. Stat! Just laying on it during the demo made me feel more relaxed than all of the sleep that I've had in the last 10 years combined. I just completed a survey for Conde Nast publications in which the first place prize was a $3,000 AmEx gift certificate. Luck be a Lady! My fingers and toes are crossed. I'd cross my legs, but, as you can see, my hips are a mess!
