Whirlwind Weekend + Some Randoms

Good morning, girls! First off, um, did we even have a weekend? Seriously, mine went by so fast that this morning when my alarm went off I wondered if I was mistaken and it was still the weekend. 'Le sigh...

Saturday was my second bridal shower and this one was hosted by Stephen's family. His sister Sarah WAY outdid herself on the food and decorations! She is 27 weeks pregnant and was such a trooper for putting the whole thing together : ) The house was immaculately clean and so adorably decorated - and she looked cute, to boot! I hope I'm as "with it" and put together as she is when I have kiddos!

Me and sweet Sarah!

We didn't take many photos just because there were lots of gifts and we wanted to get started opening them up right away. Plus, I wanted to spend more time mingling with all the amazing ladies who came to the shower. I'll see what I can get from my mom and try to post a few this week on here. I'm sure you'll all be thrilled to view more pics of me opening towels and salad plates, haha!

So yesterday we went to see the finale of Harry Potter and LOVED it. I'd elaborate on favorite parts, but since I don't want to spoil it for those of you who haven't seen it. I will say though that the movie was a perfect ending to the series and the cast did an incredible job.

I'm holding out hope that J.K. Rowling will write more books...maybe about Harry Potter, Jr. and his adventures at Hogwart's?? Eh?

Finally, I got a few emails this weekend about the shoes from Friday's post. I hope y'all don't think I'm terrible for not emailing everyone back individually, but I'm in hard core wedding mode right now and there just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done. I'm afraid to say, ye' olden blog may be taking a bit of a back seat during the next 8 weeks...hopefully ya'll will stick with me!

Anywho, I got the shoes last summer at Aldo, so unfortunately, I think the website has retired them : ( I would encourage you all to get on there and check out their current sandals and wedges though, because I always manage to find cute shoes there!

Ok, I'm off to do actual work stuff. Enjoy your day and try to stay cool in this heat!

Be blessed, lovelies-
