The 'After' Pic...

I said last Wednesday that I would post this pic 'tomorrow' (i.e. the next in Thursday). But I'm a liar. It's Monday and here it is!

Very underwhelming. I know. It's Monday...

The Candy Bar...Almost Complete

Instead of cake, we will have a candy bar at the wedding! Meaning, the following vases filled with various types of green candy. Why aren't we doing cake? We just aren't big 'cake people,' and this is much cheaper.

However, when I say that the bar is almost complete, it's because one of my vases (my favorite) broke either as it was being packed up or in transit.
I'm thinking that I will just put some clear packing tape over both sides to keep it from breaking more and still use it. I probably won't use it in the candy know, with food and broken glass posing a danger and all. But I think I can use it in my house...

Or can I fix it somehow? Are there glassworkers that can just fill in that hole? :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Since I don't blog on the weekends, or really at all (on a regular basis), I wanted to go ahead and give a shout out to some mammas for Mother's Day!

First is my mom, Wan-dog. Happy Mother's Day! We love you very much!

Yep, that's a leopard printed Snuggie.
And I musn't forget my future Mother-in-Law, Debbie...Happy Mother's Day! Love you!

RIP Lady Llerena...

Do You Dance?

Isn't that always such an awkward/random question when people ask that? Here is the scene that I envision...

Location: Bar/Club environment with dance music playing

"Do you dance?"

"Umm...yeah...sometimes. I mean, like when it's appropriate. I don't typically dance to my car in the morning...or dance my way into my office everyday...or break it down while I'm brushing my teeth in the morning. But I do dance when I've had a few drinks and I have some girlfriends with me that have also had some drinks and we are all in the mood...then I do dance. Oh, and the music has to be some vintage stuff (and by vintage, I mean old-school Britney Spears or some Kilo (who remembers him?!?)) or new stuff like Rihanna or Kesha...still lovin' that 'Tick Tock' song. So, yeah, I do you?"

Random thought...anyone feeling me?

2 ½ Weeks Ago…

I wrote my last post. A lot has been going on since then…

In wedding-related news (and I apologize if I've already shared this...I was too lazy to look back through my other posts)
  • We’ve decided on our wedding band! Huge burden off our shoulders, but I’m not sharing any details. It’s a surprise.
  • I've purchased a wedding dress! And all of my bridesmaids have ordered their dresses as well - take a look and try to envision it in black:
  • Groomsmen have all been asked (and they accepted :)). Here is how Shane posed the question to his guys...can you see the difference in the bottle label on the left and right? So cute, right?!?
  • Had to start over with another florist...but the new one is great! She even managed a way for us to have ORCHIDS!
  • Booked our officiant!
  • We are in the process of picking food...who knew that could be such a painstaking process?

In other news...
I’ve done lots more painting and redecorating around the casa. Stay tuned for pics…

My bestest friend, Jenny, was in town recently - we had a blast!

Me and Jenny (BFF since 4th grade...can you believe it?!)

Austin, Kel, Jenny and Me

Four out of six bridesmaids - Danielle, Kelly, me, Jenny and Mandy...

A few drinks/shots/songs later...

The Boys - Austin, John, Shane and Mike

Shane and I got airbrush tans. Yep. I’m serious. And let me tell you that is a very humbling experience (but not as much as a Brazilian wax…so I’ve heard). But it thankfully turned out really good! Not orange or anything!

Why did we get airbrush tans? Because we had engagement photos taken that weekend…

Aren’t they A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.? We should be getting the remainder of them sometime this week and I am so excited. I’ve also posted these on the wedding website – visit it at and check out the ‘News and Updates’ page.

I believe I've mentioned that I've been running for a while now. I've had problems with my knee, and randomly my wrist, so I went to the chiropractor last weekend. Turns out that my butt muscles are tight and messing with my sciatic nerve. What do I have to do? Massage...concentrating on my butt. Yet again, another humbling experience.

Until next time...
