Lots to Update on

Warning: Long Blog Post Ahead. Turn back now if you're not interested in spending next 2,405,687 minutes reading this.

So where was I. Oh yes I have been super super busy lately and have had a lot to blog about but no time to do it!!

First off I had a lovely Valentine's Day. K made a delicious dinner of scallops, wasabi mashed potatoes, and asparagus. I did not end of making creme brulee because we got chocolate covered strawberries but then the strawberries were not good at all so we were both a little depressed we nixed the creme brulee idea, but it was still a nice night anyway!

In Family News: We went up to PA on Sunday for K's grandfather's 80th birthday party. It was nice to visit with all the family we don't see that often, which is most of them since we live in MD. K has 2 pregnant cousins and one of them had her baby today! She has a healthy baby boy, named Thomas. I am so excited to meet him! The next one is due in May and it's a girl. Then my future sister in law is trying, so lots of babies joining the family! I love babies and I especially love baby clothes!

In Wedding News:
I picked out my bridesmaid dresses!! Being the J.Crew fanatic that I am I of course went with them. I am doing the J.Crew Cotton Cady Dresses in Classic Navy. I am laid back and I want everyone to be comfortable so I am letting the girls pick the styles they want. I am also letting them use last year styles so they can find a dress on ebay or in an outlet. Plus I have girls of all different shapes and sizes and I have bridesmaids trying to get pregnant so I want them to have flexibility. Oh yeah and I'm letting the girls pick any shoes they want in any color, I think that will spice things up a bit!

Here are some pics below of this seasons Cotton Cady styles:

What do you think?
As I mentioned before my wedding has a very preppy/nautical theme.

Oh and in more wedding news, I almost have all of my save the dates out. That is such a huge relief... I have had them for 2 weeks and they have been hanging out my head so it feels great to get them in the mail. I also created a wedding website from www.mywedding.com. It is super easy to use and free, which I love!

Oh and I got tagged for a few bloggy awards. But I can only remember the bag tag from my girl jess at no, thank you. So below is my current handbag. I bought this baby for a whopping $36 at Nordstrom BP. I love how huge it is. I will admit she had a big ugly brass chain with faux leather hearts intially but I cut those off and now she's perfect. She will do until I can afford my Gucci Horsebit Hobo in brown leather (hey, a girl can dream)

(please ignore mess in background)

I tag anyone who wants to show off their current handbag!!!!

Oh and to top off a LONG week. I went to the liquor store after work to pick up some wine and when I went to hand the cashier my ID he told me he didn't need to see it because I definitely looked old enough to drink. Hey mister that is not what someone who just-turned-27-and-is-not-taking-it-well wants to hear after a long week. CARD ME PLEASE, I AM BEGGING YOU.

Well I'm off to enjoy my vino.

p.s. if you tagged me for any blog awards that I missed let me know so I can give you some recognition!
