Another Weekend on the Road

Well i am off in the morning to beautiful weather in north carolina. I am ready for some fall weather. I think the high all weekend is 74 which is perfect kind of weather to me. I will be back on Sunday. Until then hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.
I'll leave you with a picture of my pup, Tiki.


Jeff and I are moving temporarily into my one of my parents houses they kept for the kids incase we ever needed it as I have said in previous posts. Well it needs a fresh coat of paint in the master and master bath no matter what, so I talked my dad into this beautiful shade of grey. I am real excited Mom and I are off to buy the paint this afternoon. jeff and I may only be in this house for a month or two but it still will be a beautiful color that I am just in love with.

Then we are off to do a little birthday shopping for Jeff's mom. She is turning 50 on Friday so Im going to get her some dumb over the hill gifts to go along with his Aunt's bag of old people stuff as a joke, then im gunna get her my favorite bottle of chardonnay ( we are huge chardonnay drinkers together) and a cute top she can wear on senior night, she does not have any daughters so I am her new shopper.

I will give you a little sneak peak of the signs that are going on the back of mine and Jeff's chairs at the wedding. They are going to look great. We are going to tie them onto our chairs with satin ribbon.

I also have the first draft of the menus, advice and wishes sign too but you will have to wait for the finish product. Liz with Ellas paper is so on the ball she is awesome. Well have a great wednesdsay. I am off to run errands and then home to pack to head off to North Carolina tomorrow morning. I am excited because my friend Lauren is coming and one of the other girlfriends, Allison, who lives in Orlando is riding up with me, so I wont be all alone for the drive.

Boston Trip

Well we had an awesome time in Boston, the weather was beautiful during the day but got a little chilly at night. As soon as we got there we dropped our bags off and got on the Subway and headed to the northern part of the city, Little Italy. It was amazing. We are italians so we just smelled all the amazing restaurants and finally settled on a famous pizzeria it was fabulous. Then we went to a place called Mikes pastry. If you ever decide to go to Boston this place is a must stop. THey had anything you could think of. My eye was immediately caught by the chocolate cannoli and let me tell you it was a small piece of heaven. It was the highlight of my trip. Which I of course took a picture and sent it to my brother and Jeff. I wish I could have bought some to take back to give to Jeff he would have died.

We really just walked around the entire town and we did make our stop at Cheers. Although sad to say we did not even have a beer. It was so crowded and hot in this place I got light headed. So i took two pictures and we left.

Friday night we went and saw Blue Man group. It was a very interesting show to say the least. I think you have to be really artistic to really understand how people think of things like this, but some parts were pretty funny and amazing. We enjoyed ourselves but we were not allowed to take pictures throughout the show.

Saturday we went to Harvard in the morning which was absolutely beautiful. I loved the campus and then we headed to the game. It was awesome weather. We took the subway all the way out of the city up to the college which took sometime with all the stops. I definitely am not a city girl I have decided, subways are not for me.

My dad, sister, and I outside the stadium. We were waiting for Jeff's parents.

I had to put this picture because it just hilarious. My sister and dad wanted to get lobster so we went to dinner after being exhausted from a long day of football. This is my sister truly in her element.

Back Home

I am home from Boston and had and amazing time. I have pictures to share but I have not even thought about uploading them yet. I am so exhausted from traveling. But I do have an awesome wedding to show you.
Well this has to be one of my favorite weddings I've found. I actually like the color combination alot. The photography is amazing its by Megan W Photography. I really love the pictures of the bride and bridesmaid walking across the street and the one just of their faces. They really got some great shots! I tried to choose only a couple but I liked soo many so its going to be a long post.

I dont think Jeff will cry like this, but what a great picture!

Obsessed with Wing back chairs

Well all I have to say is I saw these wingback chairs on an Ethan Allen commercial and said I have to have those. They are amazing. I love the nailhead trim detail work if I could only find a side view you would really understand. But man these are fantastic. I am adding two of these chairs to my wish list after all the million other pieces of furniture we need.

oh so check this picture out that I found. I thought it was totally cute. One day when I throw my sister a baby shower, which she is not even pregnant I am thinking about doing a little dessert table like this. I love the flower boxes hanging over it.

Ok back to packing I go. I am so excited for Boston but come to find out its suppose to be pretty chilly up there this weekend and I feel I do not have the correct clothing for this weather, we do not get into the 40s often in Florida. So I believe my mom and I are going to be hitting up the mall tomorrow for jackets and hopefully a cute gold scarf for the game.

Real Wedding Tuesday!

Well I saw this wedding on Style Me Pretty. You know my obsession with grey so I was immediately drawn to it. I do love pink although this is pretty bright for me. But its really is a great wedding. I love the up lighting and I will say it again Chivari Chairs make a wedding. The silver ones are beautiful in this setting. I think if I ever open up my wedding planning business which one day will hopefully happen I will honestly talk everyone of my clients into chivari chairs if nothing else get the chairs!

It so funny because my wedding planner is obsessed just as much as I am with them so I am not the only abnormal person in the world with this obsession.
I also booked an appointment today to get my custom veil made. Slightly worrisome because she is so booked and said oh we will have plenty of time if you come end of October. I was like that is pushing it lady but she said she will have ample time to make it. So we will see.

But onto the wedding.

Home Sweet Home

Well I am home in Florida, after a long wonderful weekend in Winston, minus the drive. I think I complain every time I make the drive but I would not change it for the world. I am pretty awful at remembering to take pictures and I do not have any from this past weekend but I have a couple from the week before last that I thought I would share.

This is Jeff's Aunt. She is so hilarious and awesome. She always tries to make it to Jeff's game and every time she comes she makes a sign. She has come up with some funny ones and she gets discouraged because she never gets on TV. Well it just happens to be this time she did get on TV and one of our friends saw her and I. She always threatens Jeff and I she is going to bring all her signs and put them up at the rehearsal dinner. I told her to go ahead and do it. I think it would be hilarious.

This is Jeff's cousin Natalie. She is so awesome! She is actually going to do a reading in our ceremony at the wedding. I told her at the game she was going to and she started crying. Jeff and I love her so much!

Not a great picture it was soo sunny, but this is Me, Aunt Nan, and Jeff's mom. We go in extra early because Jeff's dad likes to watch warm ups if your wondering why there is no one in the stands.

Then here is just a few of Jeff. =)

If it werent for the girlfriends I would be bored out of my mind up there, especially on Friday nights because the team has to do meeting, dinner, movies and then stay at a hotel so we do not see them from about 4 until after the game the next day!

This is Allison, Me, and Bri. After a long day of football. Bri the one on the left is actually an amazing singer and will be singing a song during our ceremony.

this is us girls at a bar after the game that made me feel completely old!

First thing when I got home was rush to my invitations they came in yet again and the third time was the charm. They are PERFECT! I really love them I think they are so elegant and simple I am excited for everyone to see them. I am real anxious to get the envelopes back to see the calligraphy. Its all coming together!

Well as I said in my last post I started stressing about all i have to get done. So on my long seven hour drive I made a list and man is it long. I did accomplish one thing tonight was I hired a lady to do all my table numbers, menus, bar menus, reserved signs, and a couple other things. so thats done with. I feel i have boxes and candles up to my ears my wedding room is growing and this is only 1/3 of it. A whole wall upstairs has been taken over completely. I am sure my parents will be thrilled when I am out of the house and all this wedding crap. Who knows what I am going to do with all of it afterwards.

I sat all night trying to find a first dance song tonight and I narrowed it down to two songs. I sent them to Jeff to see what he thinks. They are real old traditional song but thats what I like so Im interested to see what he thinks. I also picked out a cake cutting song, bouquet toss, and Im still looking for a father/daughter song. So hopefully I will get some checks this week. Jeff's mom is also going to order the rehearsal invites this week too so one more thing done with.

Until tomorrow. Good night.
