A Weekend to Remember

Sorry I've been a bit MIA for the past few days, but my weekend was JAM-PACKED with wedding festivities. Friday, I had dinner at a Mediterranean restaurant in my hometown that I hadn't been to since high school (I think, I may have gone once since then) with some of my closest friends. We definitely had enough time to talk since it took almost an hour to get our food to us.. they were busy, it was crazy.

Saturday, Curtis and I did some marriage counseling for three and a half, don't worry it's only because we haven't been able to go at all during our engagement and we're trying to cram it all in. Then, it was off to get ready for my Bridal Tea, which was amazing. Seriously, so fancy, but so much fun! In the theme of the weekend, of course.. we had to have a Bridal Shower on Sunday! I guess you could say my weekend was busy, ha! But it was so much fun! It's so awesome to know that you have such an amazing support group and church family that you can turn to in times of need because they love you so so much. But, I'm going to save actual stories about all of this for later this week, along with pictures.

No worries, no beagles were harmed in this process.

Going home Friday, I'll be honest, I was pretty nervous as to how the weekend was going to go. I'm not the type of girl that enjoys being the center of attention, and this weekend was all about me. But, I have to say it exceeded my expectations, I am glad it's Monday though.. I've stayed in bed most of the day, and have decided that might be what I do for the rest of the day. Although, I've got to figure out what I'm going to do about food at some point.

I'll let y'all in on a little secret, the only reason my cardigan is buttoned-up is because while I was getting tea at lunch, the spout it came out of sprayed all over the bottom of my white shirt..lame. I wore this to dinner with my besties, even got a compliment on my $7 cardigan. I've found it kind of hard to wear, and it's definitely one of those pieces I probably could've done without, but I bought it because it was seven bucks. Casual Friday did get me ready for a weekend full of dresses and curled hair though!

Hope y'all had a fantastic weekend.

  4. I actually LOVE your cardigan! I think it would be cute with colored skinnies, or with a colored tee or even a graphic tee underneath. You could try pattern mixing and wear a black and white polka dot tee underneath! So many possibilities! :)

  5. I LOVE that cardigan and necklace!! What a great deal you got on that cardigan! I'm glad it was a good weekend. I hosted my friend's bridal shower this weekend and I was so nervous. I hate talking in front of lots of people even though I love talking to little kids EVERY DAY. Haha! Weird, but I'm pretty shy, so I completely understand your not wanting to be the center of attention. :)
