I have been incredibly consumed in wedding plans ...and I'll be the first to say, it's definitely not the fairytale that I thought planning a wedding would be! I know it will get easier... if I can just get a church & reception venue booked! I need the date to be set in stone for me to feel a sense of relief. Speaking of anxiety, did you know that it's incredibly hard to be married in the Catholic church after 2pm? It interferes with the regular Saturday evening masses. This is not sitting well with this gal who has dreamt of an evening wedding ceremony her entire life.
On another note...
My mother found my grandmother's wedding dress in her cedar chest. It was so neat to see & touch! My Memie had such a pretty figure! I don't think I could fit into this dress, although I didn't try (the fabric is incredibly fragile right now).
I also found a couple photos from my parents wedding. They have a whole album, of course, but these were stuck in a pile of photos that my father happened to pull out...
The folks next to my parents are my paternal grandparents. My granny's life was taken of breast cancer right before I was born, so I always love seeing pictures of her!
While looking at churches one day this past weekend, we saw this fantastic one-man-band. Reception entertainment, perhaps? He drew in quite the crowd!
After all of this wedding talk, this meal with Brandon was much needed.
Taco Boy has the best salads, in case you're wondering. Literally makes my mouth water looking at this picture. I just cannot even explain how amazing their dressings are! This one is served with seared ahi tuna ...yum!
I had to take a picture of this outfit because the whole thing was purchased before I ever went to college! The jeans, shirt/shrug AND shoes are definitely the oldest pieces of clothing I have in my closet.
Moving right along...
The python trays I ordered from Two's Company are amaze. I bought all three sizes and am obsessed.
(Thanks Memie & Poppop for my Christmas present!)
As soon as I was reminded about these beauties on Natalie's blog, I couldn't stop thinking about them.
Not only have I neglected my blog recently (and also my nails & the gym, but that's another story), but I am also insanely behind on my Christmas shopping!
What has gotten into me!?
Happy Wednesday, loves.
Time for me to watch a Hallmark movie & eat gingerbread.
