T-Minus 3 Months!

Wow what a weekend! We had some amazing weather here and had a ton of fun dining al fresco and celebrating Nat's bday and my cousin's bridal luncheon. And on top of all the fun we even managed to accomplish a few wedding tasks.

Saturday was my hair trial and I was thrilled with the results! Sarah, my amazing stylist over at Parlor, created the exact look I was envisioning. I actually started to well up! I was so happy!!! I didn't even do that when I tried on my dress a few weeks ago...is that a bad sign about the dress??? I'm thinking that maybe I should try to recreate the look before I go for my fitting in July so I can see hair & dress together to get a more accurate picture of what it will look like on the big day. I'm sure I'll love my dress with the right hair. Finger's crossed....

It's still TBD how my hair will be clipped back because I didn't have the chiffon flowers yet. I ordered them from Oh My Deer this weekend. I can't wait to get them!

After the hair trial we went on over to VeKa, a bridal shop in Nolita, and bought Jen her hairpiece. I don't have a picture of it to post right now but I will soon. Her hair trial is this coming Saturday so I'll post some pix next Monday.

Overall it feels like we're making some more progress. We decided today to start Operation "This is SERIOUS 52" aka wedding boot camp. Jen coined the term and came up with the idea. Basically we have 13 weeks left until the big day so we need to get 52 workouts in before then, 4 times a week. We really super determined now. My sister gave me her Perfect Pushup yesterday (she used if before her wedding and the girl had GUNS!) and Nat sent on over the Women's Health Belly Off Club Workout today. Loving everyone for all the support and great ideas!

So here's what we have on tap for this week...
  • Sign off on the final proof for the invitations which we're expecting sometime today or tomorrow
  • Jen's hair trial Saturday
  • Make an appointment for a cake tasting...yummm! A little cake won't kill us, right? :)
  • And I have to get on over to M&J and some other stores the finally solve the shoe problem.
  • Oh and we still don't have a computer...it's at Apple for repair. I fear that the hard drive is corrupted which is an absolute disaster. I have a ton of wedding stuff on there that wasn't backed up and worst of all I think there are pictures of Antoinette that we don't have anywhere else. I'm praying that someone can recover that at least!

Hope you all had a great weekend and have a happy Monday!
