Weekend Recap

We had or I had a crazy busy weekend. Friday Jeff and I went and had an amazing steak dinner at Ruth Chris. Believe it or not Jeff and I both could not even finish our steaks we were so full from eating all the other delicious stuff. I made Jeff let me take a picture of him before we left because he looked so cute.

We were so exhausted from the ridiculous amount of food we ate, we came home and just went to bed. Saturday Jeff entered a surf fishing tournament out at the beach and had to be there way early. So my sister and I met up with my friend Liz and headed our there later. wasn't exactly the most beautiful day but some how I still got burned. We had a great time though we went to a Jamrock's and then up to the Lemon Bar.

Sunday we just went to church and then I had a wedding to help Christina.
Let me just tell you how absurd this wedding was. It was Vietnamese wedding, so the bride told us oh people are normally late in our culture. We were like oh okay maybe 10 for 15 minutes. At the ceremony there were maybe only 50 people out of like 190. They all start showing up an 1 hour into the reception then even more showed up 2 hours into the reception. Then over 50 people showed up who DID NOT RSVP. We were already maxed out there were no seats for them. The bride and groom wanted a "kids room" so they did a seating chart accordingly. Well the parents with kids would not move their children and said they had to be with them. It was sooo crazy and the people were soo rude. I mean we were bringing out tables and chairs that did not match so people could just sit. I would have been so upset if I was the bride.
Then its tradition for the Bride and groom to take a picture with every single guest (talk about taking a long time)
then after their five course meal which obviously there wasn't enough because so many extras showed up. its tradition for the bride and groom to go to every single table and every single person gives a toast. (OH MY GOSH) on the microphone people were just screaming into it. It took forever. They finally cut the cake and turned some dancing music one with 45 minutes left in their night. It was a night from hell for a planner thats for sure. Christina and I were running around with our heads cut off and it doesn't help with they were so rude and obviously it wasn't our fault why dont you rsvp is what I wanted to scream at these people.

So anyways I was super exhausted and just wanted to go to bed last night. Hope everyone has a great week!

Earth Day

Happy Earth Day everyone! I'm sure everyone is watching the draft just like my crazed husband who had to go up to a local bar to watch it with all his guy friends. I said see yah later I'm going home to watch Real Housewives.

I am so ready for the weekend to be here. tomorrow Jeff and I have have dinner reservations at Ruth Chris a yummy steakhouse due to my loving brother! So we are both excited for that. We've only been a couple times for our high school proms, anniversaries, valentines days and tomorrow we get to go just for a date night.
Then we will probably be spending our Saturday on the beach. its suppose to be beautiful weather and jeff loves to fish.
So I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Wordless Wednesday

I love this one the most! So PRetty! I am all for metal roofs!

This one is super cute also.

I found some pictures of what jeff and I would call our dream kitchen. I showed jeff and he even approved which he normally just nods his head to me and continues on when it comes to stuff like that.
We went on a walk last night and were talking about all the things we would do if we won the lotto and this kitchen would be on the top of our list. Well we said our dream home would be first thing!
Oh if we only really could win the lotto!

Wedding Shower

We had a great day yesterday and had perfect weather. The lady I threw the shower with has a beatiful backyard so we decided to have the shower outside next to her beautiful little fish pond. I took some pictures of the day to share. Majority of the detailed things were from Etsy.com

The amazing flowers were done by the florist who did my wedding, Bill Wilson. The flowers were probably one of my favorite part they were everywhere!

Me and the Bride to Be!

The cake turned out fabulous and it was delicious!

This was the dead bush I found in my backyard. I had Jeff keep it for me. I trimmed it up a little bit spray painted it and cemented it in a pot. Then I just added some tissue flowers and pictures of the bride and groom.

This was my favorite detail of the day. The Bishop banner. The girl I purchased it from did a fantastic job!

The Bride and her bridesmaids!
