wedding wednesday - 45 days & a birthday

guess what everyone?
today is my birthday!!! 
(duhhh I only posted about it here)
whooo hoooo!!!
 It has been a pretty great day already!
I got a boat load of well wishes on FB that got me a little teary-eyed ,
some cool toys and a ton of sweets and some pretty beautiful flowers as well!
Thanks friends for all the love!

Now on to the good stuff!
The wedding update!!!
ha! you thought I would skip that in light of having a birthday??!!!
child, please.

So - we are trucking right along on in our planning/implementation.
We got 45 days y'all.
45. days.
I can't even deal.
I'm so excited I want to jump out of my skin
 but I'm so stressed out I want to hide under a rock!
how is that even possible??
But I will prevail and it will all come together beautifully right?
I'm excited as I have delusions  plans to make a trip to the "Garment District" on Sunday in Downtown Los Angeles and get my full craft scout on!!
I have spent the last few days researching the best places to go and who carries what so that when I'm there I am not wasting time just "wandering" the streets.
I have a map and lists of what I need and where these items are in relation to each other.
Yes. I am a ltitle nuerotic. 
sue me.
I like to be prepared!
So I'm SUPER excited about that.
I have been itching to do a craft project ever since my 'pomander experiment' and I have spent the last week or so figuring out all the elements and supplies needed and pricing them out to be on budget! 
and I think I may have done it!!!
But we will know for sure after my excursion on Sunday!
What else have I tackled you ask?
No? well I'll tell you anyway 
I found and booked a florist thanks to this lovely lady who referred me to Andre's House of Floral Design
Y'all this man has agreed to create what I want within my miniscule budget!!!
We have a 'date' to meet next Thursday so I'll keep you posted on that!
Oh and I finally chose shoes!!!!
The winners are:

Basically - they match the Groom's tie the best, got the best reviews and were on sale!!
I'm $69 and some change under budget on that item!!!
whoo hoo!!! 
LOVE it when that happens and you know so does my CFO!!

I think that's all I've got on the wedding front this week.........

stay tuned for next week and 38 days!!!


  1. Beautiful shoes! So exciting that it's so close. I'm so excited to see how it all comes together :)
