I have a list that I am faithfully following to be sure that I get everything done. I got ahead yesterday, but I remembered a couple more things to do today.
confirm vendors and reservations (CHECK!)
finish thank you notes for showers
get groceries for bridesmaids' brunch
finish laundry and start packing for honeymoon
find something blue
clean shoes (they got a little dirty at my bridal portraits)
get eyebrows waxed and nails filled
pay all bills that will be due while we're gone
wrap gifts for parents and bridesmaids
The last minute details are getting overwhelming, but I know it will be a beautiful day whether I get everything done or not.
Everyone keeps telling me to breathe... Maybe I seem more stressed that I want to admit. I really should've taken off from work this whole week.

Misty at Southern Belle Mama gave me this award yesterday! I'm so excited... She included with it 10 random "Honest Scrap" things about herself, so I'll carry on the tradition :)
1. I'm getting married in 11 days and I've been counting it down for about 100 days!
2. The more I try to eat healthy the more I want to eat onion rings and cheeseburgers.
3. My fiance has a karate/kickboxing/boxing/mixed martial arts school so I took a kickboxing class when I was trying to get him to notice me. (It worked!)
4. All our friends say we're gonna have twin girls, even though twins don't run in our families.
5. I love to drink Long Island Iced Tea.
6. All the women in my family live to be at least 90.
7. My professional goal is to open a preschool.
8. My favorite car is a Range Rover Sport. (in red, please!)
9. The college I went to had fewer students than my high school.
10. I'm lactose intolerant but I LOVE to eat dairy products.
And now I'll tag these lovely ladies for their Honest Scrap Award!

I cleaned the house yesterday, which included giving the bathrooms a good scrub. I never knew until I shared a house with an 11 year old boy that it was necessary to scrub the ENTIRE toilet and the floor surrounding it so often. I love him. I hate scrubbing up urine. This is not a mop and bucket kind of job; this is a hands and knees, cleaning solution directly on the sponge kind of job. I know he doesn't do it on purpose, but there are definitely sprinkles that have gotten away from him and have gone unnoticed. The boys of the house can complain all they want about my hairs that shed and find their way into their sock drawer, video games, or bath towels, but I can honestly say I have never gotten peepee on the floor.

#1. Bare Minerals makeup - I've converted so many of my friends and family members to this makeup, I should probably get a kickback! It is absolutely the best thing I have ever put on my face. I have super sensitive (and really cranky) skin, and this does not irritate it or break me out. It comes in shades for all skin tones, too.
#2. OPI Nail Lacquer - This is something I NEVER go without. I will always have my toes painted... Every day of the year. OK... sometimes I let them get a little chipped in the winter, but I try! haha Occasionally I paint my finger nails, but always my toenails, and nothing lasts longer or has better colors than OPI. Half the fun of OPI is the names! This is the Spring/Summer 2010 Collection called Hong Kong. The colors have names like Red My Fortune Cookie (bottom right) and Lucky Lucky Lavender (top left).

These may be every little girl's first purse. I know there was a time in my life when they were my favorite purse. And animal cookies don't get any better than these! Don't they bring back memories?
Lilly Pulitizer is now in a partnership with Barnum's Animal crackers for charities to support tiger conservation throughout the world. At the same time, she is making every child a little more fashionable, and cookie packages much more springtime!
In honor of these stylish little packages, what is your favorite spring purse?

I had the willpower to
stay on one particular diet
and it would be..."
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
In the last 2 months I have planned almost an entire wedding! I am getting married in 25 days (not that there's a countdown or anything...) and I finally have time for the blog world again.
There are pictures to come of all the fun wedding stuff :)
This has a been a beautiful few days in the DC Area... It is supposed to be 92 degrees today! It is totally time to break out the skirts and shorts. I've been tanning, I have red toenails, and I'm ready for this warm weather! The last time I blogged it was snowing!
I am in love with OPI The Thrill of Brazil right now... It's the perfect summer red!
What are you loving now that the weather has warmed up?
