You guys! I just had such a crazy, busy and productive weekend. I lived in these booties nonstop and never bothered to fix my hair, but I got so much accomplished! We officially booked & paid deposits for our cake baker and officiant, we got much closer to finalizing a honeymoon trip, I finally organized all my wedding contracts & brochures into a cute little wedding binder, and most of my girls officially picked out their bridesmaids dresses! Somehow I also managed to squeeze in extra girlfriend hangout time and going to a Rockets game with my parents. I wish I could always be this productive!
In other news – this top was one of my Valentine’s presents from George because he thought it looked like something I’d wear. He totally nailed it! This is officially my new favorite shirt.

George and I were lucky enough to go on an impromptu date night last weekend for Valentine’s Day. We had the little guy all weekend, but something came up at his school on Friday night and we were suddenly free with no plans! George took me out for a nice dinner after work and we were able to celebrate our last Valentine’s Day together before we’re officially a married couple!
This outfit is what I wore out on our date. The dress is a somewhat recent purchase from JustFab. I had some credits on there leftover from a long time ago and finally made a purchase. I was skeptical about what the quality would be like for their clothes, but I was pleasantly surprised by this dress! The only drawback is that it fits too loose on me (FYI – I ordered a large). It fit well enough when I received it, but now that I am ten pounds lighter it really is too big on me. It’s definitely not a bad problem to have, I will just either have to get it tailored or give it away in my next closet purge.

I just returned from a crazy busy weekend of visiting our wedding venue and meeting with vendors. My mom had never seen our venue before, so George and I took her on a short one-night trip to visit the site and help us with all our appointments. We ended up attending 6 wedding-related appointments in less than 24 hours, which was exhausting! Luckily the trip was a lot of fun for all three of us and we got a lot accomplished.
I enjoyed all of our appointments, but my favorite was meeting with our florist for the first time. I brought my “Wedding Flowers” Pinterest page, and they totally captured what I was going for just by looking at my pins. I made decisions as far as what centerpieces I wanted, how much of everything I needed and an overall vision/mood I’m going for and now they’ll be handling the rest. Yay!
I’m getting really excited that everything is finally starting to fall into place for our wedding. A lot of the big decisions have been made, so now I can start focusing on the details and other events that aren’t the actual wedding (like showers and honeymoon destinations). It’s starting to hit me that our wedding is almost here and then I won’t have to worry about all this stuff anymore! I’m trying to make the most of it and enjoy this process while I can. It took me a lot of stress and grief to get to this place where I can finally enjoy myself, but I’m so glad that day is finally here!
