Fill in the Blank Friday

Go here:   The Little Things we Do  to play along!

1. Over this labor day weekend I will be  with some of my favorite people in the ATX - drinking, watching football and then bachelorette partying for a friend that is getting married in October.

2. With political debates going on right now, my thoughts are  I tend to not discuss politics here - for a reason.

3. Today I am headed to the ATX- I am staring at the clock!!!

4. The best thing I have cooked recently was - Bob Blumer's Maple Salmon

5. The last thing I bought was a really tacky sequined tank top for this weekends "Rock Star" themed party.

6. The best movie I saw this summer was Bernie. HILARIOUS. I'm from can tell.

7. The best book I read this summer was The Sex Lives of Cannibals - my future MIL recommended it and I loved it!

Stupid people

Do you ever just get totally annoyed at stupid people? I'm not talking about "not smart" people - but people who continually make stupid choices and just can't figure their shit out.

Sorry...I have dealt with my share of stupid in the past few days and I needed to VENT.

Fill in the blank Friday

Go over here to join in the fun with Lauren -

1. My favorite thing to do on Friday is come home from work, make a cocktail, play with Roxy pup and wait for B to get home so we can go out for dinner!

2. This Friday I am going to see B! He has been in Wyoming for over a week so I am ready to see him!

3. The best thing about a weekend is RELAXING!

4. Now that summer is almost over, I am feeling ready for fall and ready for FOOTBALL SEASON!!

5. The best thing I did this summer was go the beach, see friends and just relax.

6. The thing I am looking forward to about fall is football games, the clothes, and enjoying being outdoors as it won't be 100+ outside! Granted our fall doesn't really start until late October.

7. If I had to be stuck in one season the rest of my life, I would choose Summer. Even though it is hot outside, I love being on a boat, going to the beach and just being outside.

Wedding Wednesday

A lot of things are going on and life has become hectic -

Planning a wedding takes a lot of time - I didn't really know this until now.  My mother and I have looked at dresses, but I have yet to find the "one" - Obviously I won't be posting my dress on here until after the wedding.

Here are ones that I have tired on, but for some reason or another are NOT the ones:

I found out that I love lace, I need definition on my waist and I don't like strapless - so that means I will end up with the exact opposite ;)

I think this is sometimes something we should remember. There are many people that were taken from my life when they were too young - I need to remember how much of a privilege it is to be alive and be here living my beautiful life.

Wedding Wednesday

I have never done a wedding wednesday I figured since I am in the midst of planning mine - I can!

There are approximately 280 days until our Wedding day.

So far I have the following contracts signed:

Venue - ceremony and reception. The venue does their own catering, we do a tasting sometime around January. 

Photography- Emily is amazing and I cannot wait to work with her (also she is Cuban! so am I!)

Wedding Coordinator - booked! I love her! She has been so incredibly helpful.

Cake - I have my cake lady picked out, she has awesome cake - now I need a design I like.

Hair and makeup - I have sent in the signed contract and I am awaiting to hear back.

DJ - I am in the midst of contract review, but probably by the end of the week they will be booked.

So far so good!

On to flowers, dress, and decor...

Our bags aren't packed JUST yet....

For our honeymoon.....we are going to


Back in college when I backpacked through Europe, I met a ton of Aussies and Kiwis that had already been through Thailand and they made me wish I could go. That dream is coming true in 2013.

B and I are BEYOND excited!
