final hurrah

The girls and I are finally heading to my bachelorette weekend in Scottsdale. I'm ridiculously excited because by the time I get back, Hunny Bunny and I will only have a month until our big day!

Can you believe how quickly the year has gone by?

It seems like only yesterday when he proposed in the parking lot. But that's neither here nor there...

My bestest besties got it all planned. We're staying at the W Hotel. How fitting since I'll be getting married at the W too! A few years back, when another one of our friends got married we were at a different desert locale! But these days, we're old and would rather avoid the party scene.


That would be just a couple months after my snowboarding accident. Yes, I'm in Vegas. And yes, I'm in a wheelchair.

Here's to good times.

But that was a lifetime ago! No more wheelchairs. And no more dancing on stage - well, maybe - but definitely no dancing on stage with a leg brace.

Instead, we'll be getting pampered at the Bliss Spa where my MOH managed to score a 20% discount for all of us!

I cannot wait to get my herbie which combines every step of their fabulous basic facial and fruit acid wash, with a simultaneous full-body rub-on and wrap-up in lavender, bergamot, lemon, thyme, peppermint, and eucalyptus bliss-blend in slimming essential oils. Complete complexion perfection. A head-to-toe 'whoa'.

Here's to even gooder times.

something ain't right

How is it that Hunny Bunny's wedding shoes cost more than my wedding shoes ?? There must be some sort of unspoken rule that's been broken.

It ain't right, if you ask me. There must be some recourse. I should be able to make up the difference and buy another pair of shoes, right? Make up the difference.

Anyway, HB is kinda mixing casual and formal with his wedding outfit so we thought that these Prada sneaks were the perfect combination. At first he was looking at dressier ones but in the end, decided that he would get more wear out of these ones after the wedding.

Neither of us wanted to buy shoes that could only work for one occassion.

Now, gotta shop for my makeup shoes..

it's getting closer

Hunny Bunny really didn't want to do it but he took one for the team and indulged my need for engagement photos. Besides, it was included in our deal! We couldn't let it go to waste right?

I had a really hard time deciding what to wear. Most people told me that I should wear basic, solid colors - no bold prints or crazy colors.

I tried on several outfits and modeled them for HB and also one of my bridesmaids. Both liked the dress that I had originally chosen, which was this floral number by Sweetees. I didn't want to buy a new dress for the photo shoot and I just really like this dress!

I didn't think it was too busy or too colorful, just enough. What do you think? I hope I made the right decision!

The photo shoot itself was so goofy! HB and I are not the kind of couple you see snuggling on a bench at the park. In fact, if you didn't know we were together, you probably wouldn't ever know! So to have us fake-kissing and whispering sweet nothings in each others ear?

Ew! Puke! BLECH!

I hope we get at least a few really good ones so I can have them printed and displayed during the wedding... We'll find out in a few weeks! Wish us luck!
