Confessional Friday

Hi ladies! Leslie isn't doing a link up this week but I still wanted to catch up with you a little bit. A lot has been going on around here so let's begin!

// Last week was suuuuper stressful. I visited my venue on Monday and had to make a decision on Tuesday on whether to book it or not. I was seriously freaking out. I want our venue to be special but I also don't want to have logistical issues like with parking cars and people having trouble finding the place. Even my nail lady could tell I wasn't right. I seriously felt like I was losing my mind. Then I went to St. Louis on Friday to try on dresses and that was MORE stress. But I think I solved my stress issue by hanging out with some of my girlfriends at the lake last weekend. Sometimes it's best to take a break and have a little fun.
We had the whole lake to ourselves.

// My future SIL made corned beef and cabbage and a bunch of other delicious Irish food on Sunday for St. Patrick's day. It was seriously SO GOOD.

// I BOUGHT A WEDDING DRESS!!! It's beautiful and I can't wait for it to arrive. It should be here any day now! Here's one that didn't make the cut. Just for your viewing pleasure.
Buying my dress was not your average wedding-dress-buying-story. But I don't feel like telling that story today. It still stresses me out just thinking about it!

// I got my Save-The-Dates! They are so pretty! I can't send them out until my new return address label stamp arrives. Did I mention I like stationary? I like, love stationary.

// Taz got a new toy! We bought him a cat tower for the office. Yes, he's slightly spoiled. And if you are ever cat-tower-shopping, definitely buy them off Amazon. WAY better pricing than at local pet stores.

// I hate to bore you with more wedding talk but I decided I'm going to get mis-matched china for my dessert plates for the reception. I think this look is super cute and adds a personalized touch to the standard white serving plates. Plus it will be a conversation piece. I can't wait to get my hands on a bunch of pretty gold/pink/silver/floral plates! Look out, vintage stores!

// I decorated for Easter and I'm a little obsessed with this tree and basket. Neely and I bought these trees after Christmas last year and we both have had so much fun decorating them for each holiday. But there is just something about pretty pastel eggs and fluffy chicks that really tripped my happy trigger!

// And lastly, I will leave you with this girl that has two babies trapped in her knees.

Happy Weekend!
