Hi loves. I’m still alive. I promise.

My weekend just started and I feel like it’s almost over. Oh the joys of working every Saturday.

But that won’t be changing anytime soon, so I guess I should just stop complaining about it.

I’ve been keeping busy with the whole wedding stuff and actually getting a lot done!

We got some of our engagement photo’s back and I am just in love with them! Our photographer is seriously amazing and the main thing I loved about our session was we didn’t do the cheesy posed pictures. She actually told us we weren’t allowed to do any (I did request a few specific poses) but she wanted us to basically just hang out, be ourselves and she would capture the true emotion.

And she did!

We did some inside the bar and our photographer actually found this really awesome hallway to do some shots in. I think they all turned out great and I can’t wait to get more back.

Other things checked off the wedding to-do list, I finally chose my bridesmaids dresses and I bought my wedding shoes! It seems like all my purchases have kind of been not planned, just felt right, but I think that’s the way it should happen.

As for the bridesmaids dresses, my sister went to try on dresses I liked and randomly tried on another one she liked and I ended up loving it best! I went to a local store to look at color swatches and they offered to let me try on the dress. What girl doesn’t like trying on dresses?

I will have it in more of a light cappuccino color that I think will go really well with our theme.

As for my shoes I went just going to get a feel for what heel height I wanted. I found two pairs that I liked…

One pair I really thought was a classic shoe and the other had a little glam to it. I of course wanted a little more glam and it turned out they were on sale so I figured why not.  Well turns out they were on extra sale and I got an extra 50% off the already reduced price. So let me just tell you, I paid $15 for my shoes.

Now if I could just get Matt to choose and decide what he is going to wear… that would be nice.

Boys gotta love them. At least he does cute things randomly for me though.

Like when he went to our local coffee spot to get us some coffees, I stayed home to start breakfast.

My iced Americano had a very special message.

His and hers coffee. That coffee tasted extra good.

And if that didn’t make breakfast all the better, Matt was actually a sweetheart and had dinner ready for me after an extra long day at work.

Baked chicken with quinoa, steamed broccoli and I toasted up a bread stick from Great Low Carb Bread Company in the oven when I got home .  They sent me a few new products and this was one of them.  I will admit that they aren’t as buttery as I would like and were a little dry, but I loved the texture of them. I did discover that they are a great dipping vessel. And you guys know how I love to dip!

I made a little marinara dip and solved that problem.

In sending me their new products I begged them to send a few more of their squares. I love these things!

The brownie is by far one of my favorites to use as my dessert.

And let’s be real, anything topped with reddi-whip is extra amazing.  Matt and I randomly picked up a bottle at Target the other day and I seriously forgot how simply good it was. And yes we do reddi-whip shots each time we use it. You just have to, I think it’s a rule.

Well loves it’s Sunday, so I’m off to do what I do best.
Drink beer and watch football.
