50 Shades

I am sure most of you have either read the series, or at least heard of it.
if you haven't, I highly recommend it!!
Its a very easy read, great story line with some sex and bondage all wrapped up into 3 books.
How they are going to make a book out of it, I have no idea!!
 I am quite sad I finished the series so fast! Here is a clip from the Ellen show, hilarious!

Happy Friday!!

Wedding Wednesday

I'm back!! 
After working a 16 hour day yesterday, I slept in this morning and now finally here on blogger catching up.

I am so excited to share that we booked our honeymoon to Maui!! 
We went into AAA to get information, and for some reason I thought maybe it would be cheaper, but it wasn't so we came home and did it online. Yes it was still expensive, but this is a one time thing!! Only getting married once!! 

I wanted to share these great door knob signs I found on Etsy, they came in the mail today and I just love them. You can find them here!

I might have some custom ones made for our combined bachelor/bachelorette trip! Speaking of that, I ordered some cute invites from Shutterfly!
We are so excited for that trip with all our best friends!! Staying at our favorite resort, sipping margaritas poolside. Heaven.

And lastly, new invitations came in the mail! Half the cost as the other ones. Thanks to many of you for suggesting Cards and Pockets, we ended up ordering these and they make the look so much better. Only thing was, invites were a tad too wide and long so one by one, I had to cut them to fit.

That's it for today!

For the love of Wednesday

I am back at work for my 2 day work week. So ready for the weekend!

I worked Thursday-Sunday this past week which at 12.5 hours a day, I was exhausted!
We had a nice sushi dinner on Sunday, love the salad and edamame there. Lots of garlic.
My date :)

The last two days I have just relaxed and enjoyed my time off. I did some shopping yesterday and laid by the pool. Love days off during the week when no one else is at the pool. Heaven I tell you.

Invitation DRAMA!!

So I went and ordered my invitations last week... I was so happy because I really liked them.
I was sitting at lunch on Wednesday telling the fiance and his mom about them, and then I mentioned the price... and he could barely lift his mouth off the table.
I paid $600 for 50 invitations... yes... that is 12 dollars for one...

I stayed up Wednesday night crying my eyes out. I didn't know what to do. I really liked what I had ordered. But couldn't comprehend the $600 part....

I decided to send my MOH  in the next to try and cancel the order. I was relieved when she texted me saying she got my money back, but sad because I really liked the ones I had picked.

So here we are again, on the hunt for new ones... I have found 2 that I like... both in the $250 range.
Here is what the cancelled order looked like...

Happy Friday to all of you!
I am stuck working all weekend :(

Monday Madness

Hope you all had a great Easter!!

I am excited to say that I finally did some wedding stuff!!

I ordered our wedding invitations from a boutique nearby, took the fiance's grandma to find her dress at Nordstrom's, ordered the invitations for our combined Bachelor/Bachelorette weekend, and picked out some flower girl baskets.

While at Nordstroms, I tried on Tory Burch flats and decided I needed wanted them.

Yesterday I worked a little overtime, then had a late lunch with his grandparents, then visited his mom. We enjoyed a nice tart pie and coffee on their deck.

And lastly, my cute niece and nephew. Missing them big time!

Date Night

With my crazy work hours, I sometimes feel like I never see my other half.
Since working all weekend, then working some overtime on Monday, I knew I needed a night out with my guy.
We had a $10 dollar off coupon for Outback so we went there for dinner, I had the best Strawberry Peach Sangria. I want more of those!!

We then went to the movies to see "21 Jump Street"

It was pretty funny, but I could have waited to see it at home. But.... Channing Tatum... he is hot!!

And lastly, my cute tiny Frappy.
