High Five for Friday + Giveaway Winner!

Per yoush, I'm linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk blog for this H54F post.

I'm so excited for this Friday specifically because its full of wedding things! And better yet, I get to spend it doing wedding things with my mom because she is coming into town! Yay!

1. First wedding dress fitting

My real mock wedding dress
*Fingers crossed* I hope it fits and doesn't need more alterations because, let's be real, I want to randomly wear it as much as possible.

2. First cake tasting!

Bless you, Pinterest.

Miles is going with me on this wedding venture to try out some cake flavors. It's our first taste test for cake and I am super excited. I know exactly what kind of cake I want - white design a top of white buttercream icing with a monochromatic monogram.

3. "Matron of Honor"

My former roommate and maid of honor Emilie lovingly asked me to be her matron of honor for her upcoming May wedding! (Doesn't the word "matron" just make me sound like I'm 41 and making jean jumpers for my 18 children? Yes? Glad we agree.) This is kinda old news, but I'm still just as excited as the day she asked me. I love that girl and our sweet relationship. Plus, I love the fact that she picked supacute J.Crew dresses that were on sale. Score.

4.  Pre-marriage retreat! 

Next weekend we're going on a pre-marriage retreat in Georgia! Miles' boss is graciously sending us on this and we couldn't be more excited! There's supposedly a masseuse, freshly popped popcorn, and a pottery class, not to mention amazing food. I can't wait! 

5. Shopping
So, real talk, this isn't really much of a high five, its kinda a big giant thumb down. For some reason, when it comes to accessories like a veil, shoes, etc., I can envision exactly what I want, but for some reason, designers can't. Then I shop and don't find anything I like because it doesn't match up with the precise and perfect vision in my mind. Its a curse. Here's to hoping I find some things like these pretties:

Blue Nile freshwater pearl bracelet

Super fun sparkly earrings from Etsy!

I love a good sparkly heel.

Aaaand last but not least, the winner from the Wind Blown giveaway!
Entry #9, which is Heather S.! Congrats, Heather! Just shoot me an email to claim your prize!

Happy Friday, y'all!

  6. Hi! Dropping by from H54F!

    Wedding planning is so much fun and so much stress all at the same time. I hope you're surviving it well! Your line "Doesn't the word "matron" just make me sound like I'm 41 and making jean jumpers for my 18 children? Yes? Glad we agree." made me laugh so hard!

    Happy Friday!

  8. Kohl's has sparkly heels that look almost identical except for the peep toe is missing. Also, I bought similar earrings for my mom for Christmas from there. I would like that bracelet for myself!
