life as of lately

wednesday i went to lunch with my mama & her bowling ladies
afterwards we went & saw salmon fishing in the yemen
& had a night in watching our favorite show, revenge.
thursday was a busy day. i had my trial run for hair & makeup
for the wedding day. i loved it!
my mama & i then went to meet with the caterer
& we went over the menu options, place settings, table clothes etc.
came home & took a nap before going out to dinner
with some girl friends of mine.
it was so fun to see them & chat!
once i was home it was invitation time.
my mom & i stayed up till 3 a.m. stuffing envelopes
while watching the wonder years.
friday i woke up & got a massage
it was the best thing.
then i came home to lick & stamp all of our envelopes
mailed them off. my wedding dress came in the mail!
i was so excited to try it on & for my mom to see the alterations.
i put it on & we were trying on jewelry with it
& when it came time to take it off... it as stuck.
sad to say the zipper came slightly broken & we had to completely
break it to get it off... stressful yet sort of funny. i'm just glad i'm no longer stuck in my dress.
& that we figured it out before the day of the wedding. that would have been terrible.
afterwards, we went to meet with the florist!
saturday my mom, sister in-law & i went to a wedding shower
& i waited for austin's arrival! 
after he got here we went to see the avengers with my family.
sunday we went to church 
& had a bbq with the family & our friends matt, courtney & danielle 
then went & played games with some more friends.
all in all it's been a really fun & busy last few days

  1. I just ordered a polka dotted skirt last week and cant wait to get it. I love how you paired yours with the lacy top & pop of color in your shoes:)

  2. i've been drooling over that skirt for a while now ;) i just can't get myself to spend the money for anything at madewell... how did you like the movies you saw? avengers was great but how was salmon fishing in the yemen?

  3. ADORBS! Shoes and Skirt are to die for. I'm looking to schedule Avengers on the calendar this weekend...

  4. I really love your skirt! The colors and polka dots remind me of that preppy dress Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman!

  5. No surprise...I love, love, love the skirt! Seems to be a trend among the comments. :)
    Excellent choice.

  6. I love that polka dot skirt, great look!
