The Excitement Keeps Building!

The past 24 hours have been so exciting for me! It started off with my lunch shoe shopping excursion yesterday. I headed over to Cole Haan and tried on the Ceci Air Rose Sling. It was pretty comfortable but not as comfy as I was expecting considering it's NIKE AIR technology. And to top it off, it only came in white so I'd have to dye it to match my dress. I eventually decided to pass on them.

Then...now here's the exciting news...I headed on over to Jimmy Choo and low and behold I found them! The Champagne Glitter Mary Janes! I fell in love when I saw them on the shelf but once I tried them on!...I was more excited than when I found my dress! What do you guys think?




I still have the Martinez Valeros on the way but I think I'm really sold on the Jimmys. Besides being gorgeous and versatile, i'll definitely wear them after the wedding, they're super unbelievably comfortable!

To top off all the excitement yesterday, we ended up booking our legal ceremony in Connecticut. It's all set for June 27th, only 16 days from now! I can't believe that I'm going to be a married woman so soon! We don't want to take anything away from the big day on Septemeber 6th so we decided to keep it simple and low key. Just the two of us and a Justice of the Peace most likely under some gazebo somewhere in CT. I just can't believe that after 23 years of being together that we're finally going to be legally married! It's so hard to believe that it's all really happening. I feel like the luckiest girl alive :)

Next up...cake tasting!
