Wedding Wednesday

6 months away!!!!! Can't control my excitement in this house. I usually have a spaz moment about once a day were I freak out and scream in Kenny's ear "WE'RE GETTING MARRIED" . We get more and more checked off our list each day which makes it feel more real.

Here are some up dates:

Flower Girl Dress... Done!
Kenny's niece Katie Rose will be walking down the aisle in this cute little dress. This is just a example of one. Hers will be white with a pink monogram, and she'll wear a big bow in her hair:) Laughing Giraffe is a etsy shop and has really adorable dresses for little girls.

Bridesmaid Shoes... Done!
I picked out these Michael Kors wedges in silver. I had never thought of wedges before, but saw them in a picture on a wedding blog and thought it was really cute. 

Dress for Wedding Reception
I want to keep my dress on for the majority of the night but I have ordered a dress because I know I am going to be super hot... and my dress is heavy so I bought a dress similar to this, mine is being custom made so I wont get to know want it really looks like until it gets here, but I am positive it will perfect. LaRouque is a great company and was so nice to work with, can't wait to get mine!

Bridal Luncheon
I have almost everything together for this, just have to work out minor details with the caterer, and get invitations, and finalize decorations.

Hair and Makeup, Booked! 
Our wedding planner referred both of these and I pulled the trigger and booked both. Randi Buchanan is doing makeup for the entire wedding party, and  for my Mom and I! Her services include airbrushing, false eye lashes, and all day assistance. So right before I walk down the aisle she will be right there touching me up... So excited for that! A local salon Green Paridot will be doing hair, I am so excited to start doing test runs in July, if only I can decide how I want my hair for the wedding... I am really leaning toward half up half down, but with the heat of August it might end all up. 

MOG & MOB dresses, Check! 

Still to tackle:
cake tasting
order ties for groomsmen
a million other little things....

I am having Kenny's step dad "build" me and few things and then Kenny's mom who is a professional painter is going to paint some signs and such for the wedding reception.

Things to make:
"Here comes the bride" sign
Chalkboard Menu Sign
Wooden Sign for the front of our venue
Moss Letters

what's new

Sorry for my lack of blogging, I have been having some sort of writers block. Nothing too exciting has been going on with us so I haven't found much to write about. Just a few random things...

Last weekend Kenny and I drove over to Jacksonville to get my new baby. I refer to him as "Mr. Louis" . Kenny has already threaten to throw Mr. Louis out the window because I am so obsessed with him. I think that he is just jealous he doesn't have a Louis. This is him.. Aint he pretty?:)

Another recent purchase is my new Kate Spade Wedges. I got these for such a amazing deal couldn't I pass them up? I have had the same wedges for years so it was time for a new pair. I wear out my wedges in the summer so I am hoping these are durable! 

I made this chicken chili out of the Southern Living January issue and it was so yummy. I was not sure about the mango avocado salsa that you put on the top of the chili, but it made the chili! I am going to make the salsa again for fish and chicken.

Tomorrow Kenny and I are off to Sarasota for my MOH's engagement party! I am so excited for her and and her fiance Jimmy:)

Kelly got engaged a couple days before Christmas, this was the cute santa ornament I got her with the dat of her engagement.

I'm off to pack! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend:)
