Could it be true?

We put an offer on a house yesterday and today they countered us back at a great price. The realtor is coming in a few hours to sign some more paperwork. I can't believe this may work out!!
Here is the front of the house... Totally cute, no work needed.

Remember my cute wedges?? You could get them for a STEAL right now...$23!!
I want the black ones SO bad but they are sold out :( and I cant find them anywhere!!

I am sure most of you have read the Emily Giffin books, hop to itunes to get this for free!
And I can't wait to start the latest one
Well I am so excited for my shower on Saturday!! And of course to see my sisters and kiddos!

Wedding Wednesday: Music and more!

I am so excited to share the song that I will be walking down the isle to!
I have 3 flower girls that will start to the song so that at least a minute and a half of the song gets to play. It is so pretty!

For the grand entrance, I think we will play Wild One... we will start it at about the 1:30 mark

And the first dance is a secret until after the big day, but its by Boyce Ave. LOVE them!!

Father daughter is still undecided... I think I am going to let my dad pick. For all you married girls, what was your dance to??

Yesterday we met with our day of coordinator, got to see the location again. I am SO excited and ready for it to be here already!! 39 days and my bridal shower is this Saturday!!

Got my gel manicure yesterday, LOVE it. Best job they have EVER done.

And lastly, have you tried the new very berry hibiscus drink at Starbucks?? It has a good amount of caffeine and if you have it made with lemonade its even better!!

Happy Wednesday!!

Wedding Wednesday: 46 days!

Holy Moly!
Today I had my first real dress fitting with the alterations done, soooooo stressful!
First the lady forgot about my appointment, then I could barely get it zipped, then complained that shortening it an inch would be too much work!
It got zipped and all is well! I love it so much more now that it fits!

Here is my little man in his tux
Flower girl baskets times 3

No children allowed :) except a select 3 :)

New honeymoon suit, only $24 at JC Penny's. It's really more a coral color

New shades from Nordstrom, 2 for $20! Score!

That's it for today!!

I want....

1. Our offer to get accepted on this house!! We see so much potential and its the neighborhood we want to be in! The first offer we put it the bank went with a different offer that ended up backing out! So annoying!! So we put in another offer yesterday, so waiting to hear again....
Its crazy how hard is it to buy a house in our city, so many buyers/investors out there with the same budget and we keep getting screwed!

2.  I would love to snuggle this fur boy forever!! I just love him so much.

3. I want people to stop bitching about MY wedding!!  And when I say people, its more some family members upset about the whole family not being invited. I only invited family that I know I will have a relationship with down the road!! And its freakin expensive!!

4. Can't wait to open this bad boy and see how it is! Any of you tried it?? What's the best recipe??

Happy Monday!!

Late but worth the wait

Just realized that time has flown by and I never posted pictures from the 4th of July in Palm Springs!

It was a very quick 2 night trip, but fun as always.

Enjoying a quiet morning to ourselves
Where is everyone??
Best decorated casita by far
Loved this dress :)
How we spend our day
I slept so peaceful here.

Happy Friday everyone!

Wedding Wednesday: stuff!

53 days until I'm a MRS!

I have been getting packages almost every other day and it really can make my whole day!
My earrings from Etsy/Singapore came yesterday but I guess I just missed the mailman so I drove around until I saw him so I could collect my package! haha. They are really gorgeous.

Another BIG delivery was our "gift" to the guests. I was really excited to order these black & white gumball dispensers. They are just something different than your usual favor.
Just need to make a cute tag for them
Stuff everywhere!

And lastly, starting stuff for the bachelorette trip :)

Friday Finds

The item I am happiest about is... this tie in black!!
Over a month ago we had found this tie at the Hugo Boss Outlet and the fiance decided it was the one he wanted to wear and also wanted to get for the dads for the wedding. Problem was, they only had 3 and we needed 4... We bought the 3 and have been on the hunt! While at my sisters last weekend in Nor Cal, we stopped by their outlets but no tie...
On our way home from Palm Springs yesterday, we stopped at their outlets and hallelujah!! They had the tie!!

They also had a Converse outlet so we stopped in looking for pink shoes for the flower girls. They had both sizes we needed!

Another find that I love is this hat from Target. For $12 it kept my face out of the sun while being stylish.

Happy Friday ya'll!

House update

Sadly on the first two houses we put offers in, one went with another offer and the second wanted way more money than we thought was worth it.
I was pretty bummed on the one because we had total visions for it.

We went and saw another house today, we really liked it and just signed an offer for it. We went in right at asking price so fingers crossed!!

On a different note, please visit my girl Liz at LoveBakingLoveRunningLoveLife, she is new to blogging so please say hi :)

We are off to Palm Springs tonight for the 4th of July! So excited!

I had a much different post planned for today, but my heart is heavy since someone close to me is battling a addiction to alcohol. It is the hardest thing to watch, especially when they don't realize they have a problem. Or they do, and then the next day they are at it again.

I feel like I barely slept a wink last night, I am exhausted and feel sick to my stomach.
This is someone that needs extra prayers and I am reaching out to you guys for that.

Have any of you gone thru something similar? I feel like were in a episode of intervention. Breaks my heart.
