20 DAYS TO GO: CANDY BAR

I'VE BEEN RUNNING AROUND LIKE A CHICKEN WITH MY HEAD CUT OFF - NO MATTER MATTER HOW MUCH YOU PLAN IN ADVANCE OR HOW MUCH TIME YOU THINK YOU HAVE, THERE ARE ALWAYS LITTLE THINGS TO BE DONE HERE AND THERE AS THE WEDDING DRAWS NEAR.

I DON'T HAVE THE ENERGY.

I'M USELESS DURING THE WEEK WHEN I'M WORKING, SATURDAYS I SQUEEZE IN ANOTHER JOB AND ON SUNDAYS ALL I WANT TO DO IS SLEEP. MY MOM HAD TO DRAG ME OUT THE HOUSE TODAY TO RUN WEDDING ERRANDS...

TODAY MY FOCUS WAS THE CANDY BAR...

I went to Old Time Pottery and got the containers for the candy...since it's Halloween time I planned on buying the candy...but I figured I should check online first and try to have everything color coordinated - let's see how that works out.

I can't believe I'm just DAYS away from the wedding...this time last year I didn't even know I would be able to have one. We were planning on either going to the court house or just throwing something together in the backyard - what a whirlwind!
HA HA, CHECK OUT MY POST FROM 1 YEAR AGO...(SIDEBAR: DIDN'T REALIZE THAT I'VE HAD THIS BLOG FOR SO LONG....WOW)

33 DAYS TO GO | My Bridal Shower (south florida)

This past weekend one of my bestfriends hosted a bridal shower in my honor at my moms house. Originally the party was supposed to be outside but it was so hot on Saturday night that we had to move everything in doors. Everything turned out perfect and there was lots of laughter and (happy) tears.

The theme was supposed to be SEX AND THE CITY! We were all supposed to dress like characters from the movie but I don't think everyone understood that from the invitation - it's ok though - I had fun dressing up...and so did a couple of the other ladies who got the memo. Here's my outfit accessorized with random bridal elements, lol:

How funny is my veil? I got it from my job at the bridal shop - I don't even know where we found this but when we did, we thought it was so funny and I knew it would come in handy some day. It obviously would not sell so they said it was ok for me to take it home...
The food:

I love those leopard napkins! We found them at Party City - very SEX & THE CITY!

 

One of the highlights of the night was the ice breaker game where everyone had to introduce themselves, tell everyone how they know me and give me marriage advice. Everyone gave really good advice and said really touching things to me as they expressed their feelings towards me - I felt very loved. The best speech was from my 9 year old sister who told me how much she loved me and that she'll always be with me, she definently made me cry:
I also cried when my fiance called from New York...and so did everyone else, lol. I miss him so much! 4 more weeks to go until I see him again...we played the Newlywed game which was cool because my Cousin Kim had pre-recorded the questions and answers with him - she played it on the laptop - it was so cool, i felt as though he was there with me although he's 3000 miles away, thanks so much Kim, that was awesome!

Everyone was also given beads to put around their neck - the forbidden words of the night were "bride", "wedding" and my name...if you said any of those things, the person who catches you takes your beads. Who ever has collected the most beads at the end is the winner.

Oh yea, here are the favors:
And of course, I got to open gifts - lots of lingerie and other perversions. FYI: Lil Sis had to leave the room for this part, just in case:


OMG, these shoes!

Then it was time for cake. I invited my Lil Sis to cut the cake with me since she wasn't allowed to stay for games and presents.
lmao...love this pic

Thank you to everyone that came. I love you.

& thank you to those who continue to stop by my little blog here and show your support. I appreciate you.

here's my outfit without all the extras.lol.

Blazer: I bought this at the Goodwill a couple months ago for $3.00 (I love to thift) | Jumpsuit: Forever 21 | Shoes: I got these on sale at Payless for $9.00 | The necklaces are from Target & Forever 21 | and the rose bracelet I got from my job at the bridal shop...I'm thinking of wearing it on my wedding day as my "Something Old"

39 DAYS TO GO | my bridal shower invitation.

This weekend I was so excited to open the mail and see my bridal shower invitation. My friend and bridesmaid Twanda has been obsessed with throwing me a bridal shower ever since I got engaged. With just a couple weeks left until the wedding she along with my other girls have planned a fun night filled with food and games - I'm so excited about it. Twanda worked very hard on the invite and worded it herself to personalize it. She then bought the stationary and had it printed, heres the result...
This is me...lol... I can't wait to play games and eat food with all my girls, lol
With the hubby to be gone, I'm excited to get together with everyone and have some "Girl Time". With another chunck of family and friends in New York, I had another bridal shower in Long Island to celebrate with them - read about it HERE if you missed it.
