Snapshots :: A Weekend of Wedding

Whew! Weddings are fun. But they're exhausting. My parents came up for the weekend to attend a shower put on by some friends we have on Twitter and we spent our free time eating amazing food and trying to put some more pieces together for this wedding (which is SIX WEEKS AWAY).

Adorable wedding themed cookies from Sweet Love Bakes that were as delicious as they were presh.

Wedding color flowers and amazing tarts at the shower - those chocolate ones had salted caramel under all of that chocolate. GENIUS.

Amazing Sunday lunch at Big Orange. Who wouldn't want a burger with an egg on top of it?

After a trip to Party City, I've decided the new theme of my wedding is MINI SOMBREROS.

Gratuitous picture of my pug. She was really enjoying last night's Closing Ceremonies. Except the Spice Girls. I don't think she liked them much.

What did YOU guys do this weekend??

What I Wore :: Wedding Shower

It officially feels like we've kicked off our wedding countdown. We had our first wedding shower this weekend thrown where I grew up in Longview, Texas. It was such a blast. I spent weeks trying to find the perfect wedding shower dress. I wanted something girly and fun, so I was pleased as punch when I found this striped dress from The Limited - in my colors, no less!

I think I've decided that a fuller, a-line style skirt is more me than any other. I loved the shape of this dress online.

My groom, ready to open some gifts! He was so excited to see a nice big crockpot in the mix. He's been wanting a roast, but I told him we have to wait until we've actually tied the knot to use anything. I know, I'm so mean.

My sister and Chesley practice their posing for the big day. Ches prefers me taller than her and quit the wedding when I told her I'd be wearing flats. I promised to stand on my tiptoes.

Look at these adorable cupcakes! They had my future last initial on them. And they were delicious. And I LOVE cupcakes!
