I'm so glad you chose your wedding party! I'm a firm believer in the more the merrier (within reason) when it comes to this as long as you've carefully chosen the people. They will make your wedding day that much more special!

Yay for Expedition Everest Challenge! I've been doing a Couch to 5k program that worked like a charm so I am so ready to go! Our team name is something like "H.O.T. Princesses." (we don't think we're hot, H.O.T. stands for Houswives of Tallahassee, lol) Maybe I'll see you there.

That's so exciting that you're about to start your student teaching! I did mine at Cypress Bay High School in Weston and it was absolutely the best educational experience of my college career. Nothing like basically being a full time teacher with no pay! Lol. But seriously, I hope you love it!

So I am sorry for not posting as much lately. I went back and re-read some stuff. I tend to miss things. Anywho...Your second hair trial was WAY better. You look great, they did a nice job. That race with the tutus...hahaha wow...you girls are too funny. And Snow White was looking a little different than usual. Hmmmm

Each and every one of those flower pics is gorgeous, it's hard to choose one really. I can't decide between them. Those colors are soooo pretty.

Well, sorry again for being kinda MIA but glad to see everything going well. Be back sooon! xoxo.

Bridal Shower Plans and Random Bits of Wedding Updates!

Hey ladies!
It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve updated my PJ! But, I’m back with a mini-update!

We have bridal shower plans, people!

My beautiful MOH, Liz, and my mom are planning my bridal shower! I know your mom isn’t supposed to help but my mom was really excited and I like for her to be involved so we threw tradition to the wind!

They are throwing me an Alice in Wonderland themed shower!! I’m so excited! The date will be August 4th so I won’t have to worry about it during the school year.

My only requirement was that it be brunch. I freakin’ LOVE breakfast food and jump at any excuse to have it! So, a menu was settled on:

Orange and Cranberry

Breakfast Breads, Croissants, Pastries and Bagels
Sweet Butter, Cream Cheese and Preserves

Seasonal Fruits
Sliced Melons and Berries

From Silver Chafing Dishes
French Toast with Warm Pecan Maple Syrup
Farm Fresh Scrambled Eggs
Smoked Bacon
Breakfast Sausage Links
Red Bliss Breakfast Potatoes
Westchester Selection of Coffee and Tea

The shower is at the country club and the food is pretty tasty. I’m already pumped about that French toast! MMM!!

My MOH, Liz, is a busy girl (finishing up her BS this May then off to get her PhD in the Fall) so she doesn’t have much time to do much planning as we get closer to the date. She and my mom have been super productive and already ordered my invites and a few other paper goods. They’ve already started collecting centerpiece items too! I’m telling you, they’re quite impressive!

Here are the paper goods. Aren’t they ADORABLE?! I’m obsessed!!:

Since we are now officially doing the Alice theme, I bought myself an Alice inspired dress today. It was only $48 from Nordstrom!:

I’m so so excited for the shower! I know these next few months are going to fly by. I can’t believe it’s almost May!

More random bits of wedding news:
-My girls have made some hair decisions! So far, 2 out of 4 girls are getting their hair done by Beaute Speciale. My mom is also getting her hair done. Can’t wait to see how extra gorgeous everyone looks!

-After finals I’m going to start my DIY projects! Hooray!

-We’re pretty sure we’re going to add red to our color scheme. We just love how fresh and modern aqua and red look together! I promise it’s prettier than you think—go Google! When we make a final decision I’ll be sure to update!

And finally, Pookie and I are running the Expedition Everest Challenge May 5th! We’re working on matching t-shirts and finalizing our plans. I will post when we get a bit closer to the day!

Thanks for reading along girls!

I can definitely relate to the severe allergies (allergic to dust, every kind of flower, grass, & trees--spring is NOT my friend!) & also the IBS =\ IBS definitely sucks.... Both DF & I have forms of it (along with his whole family actually!) We can relate...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Your shower invites! They are so friggin' adorable! I didn't have a bridal shower (since our wedding is more like an extended elopement) I kinda wanna steal these invites for a potential baby shower in the future

Love that dress too! Royal blue is one of my fav colors :D Can't wait to read about your DIY projects G'luck with finals!

oooft sorry to hear about the health issues! had my wisdom teeth out a few years ago and it was a doozy. My parents even came to take care of me. (pre DF) Big hugs to Max! I'm sure you'll be a great nurse.

I LOOOOVE your bridal shower ideas! That dress is going to match perfectly and those invites are to die for! So stinkin cute!

Glad you're almost done with finals, you can pull through I know it!

And I say totally add the red. The colors are totally fresh and modern and will go great together. You've got great plans and it's getting all firmed up!

Sorry about the allergies. That stinks. Hope you feel better soon.

Good luck with finishing up school. You must be relieved to be getting to the end.

Best of luck to Max on the wisdom teeth. I hope they give him good drugs.

Love the shower theme and the invite is amazing!!! Can't wait to see more. I drove by Westchester so many times when I lived at Quail Ridge, but never been inside. I have heard great things though.

Good luck finishing up all your school work!

Yay for being almost done with school, you must be so excited for the break. I can't wait to see the DIYs you make.

Sorry to hear about the medical issues. I hope your allergies chill out and you DF's wisdom teeth removal isn't too rough.

I LOVE the invites and the Alice in Wonderland theme. I can't wait to see how it turns out. So cute! That dress is adorable.

I had to google red and aqua because I just couldn't picture it but it looks really nice together. The red is a nice pop. I think it will look pretty.

Good luck with the exams!

Ugh Allergies...NO FUN! However, your shower invites are TOO CUTE and so is your dress!

•Coincidentally, my sister-in-law is getting her wisdom teeth out today too. I hope Max has a speedy recovery. Luckily, it is a pretty easy surgery.

•I hope you can control / recover from some of your health issues too! It's no fun feeling icky.

•Good luck with the rest of your semester--You'll kick butt.

•Love the shower invites and dress. Those breakfast foods sound SO yummy. I'm sure you'll have a blast!

•I am rather fond of red and aqua together, good choice!

I hope your finals go well, missy! You're almost done: hang in there! I'm also glad your allergy isn't worse or food-related.

Your bridal shower invite is GORGEOUS though! I am in lurvvvee with it.

The dress is also darling. Your shower is going to be so much fun!!
