19 Days + Pics from the Weekend

Love this man....LOVE this man.
  Hey ladies! Hope all of y'all had a great weekend! We did, but MAN was it a fast and furious one. I really don't think that we stopped going the whole time...craziness, I tell you.

Saturday morning, my mom and I hit Hobby Lobby early to buy up some last minute items needed for the reception decor. It's still crazy to me that we're thisclose to September 17th already!

That afternoon, we hit up the lake for a short-lived cruise around the lake. I say short-lived because it was hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk. I mean REALLY, Momma Nature!?? Can't you please send us southerners some relief already? And while you're at it, give our east coast neighbors a break from Irene?

Speaking of Ms Irene...I saw reports on TV from her destruction this weekend and LAWD ALMIGHTY! Girlfriend needs to pop a Midol and slow her 59 mph self down already! Hope all of y'all on the east coast are hangin' in there!

Yesterday, Stephen and I drove over to Fort Smith for a birthday lunch in honor of his sister, Sarah. A few pics ensued before we left the house.

Dress is from Forever 21 (not online), shoes are from Aldo, earrings are from...who knows, and hair is courtesy of the Good Lord. Or Sally Beauty Supply...tomato, tom-ah-to.

Forgive my lack of mascara...it's a sin to take pics without the stuff but I plum forgot to put it on.

And I know you have seen this diva before, but this is Ava, Stephen's little niece. We laughed because she kind of looks like she's throwing up some kind of gang sign. Just call her Avizzle. She also happens to be our flower girl for our wedding in NINETEEN DAYS.

My word.

On that note, I'm off to take a nerve pill and do some soothing yoga moves.

Ok, not really. But that option sounds far more appealing than answering emails and crafting clever financial marketing campaigns here at work, (which is what girlfriend is really gonna do...)

Be blessed, lovelies-

  9. Hi Leslie, I just started following your blog. I found it through BonBon Rose Girls, I saw you were a Rosebud and I'm trying to become one too. Anyway it said to visit our fellow network members to get to know them. I'm not a Rosebud as of yet, but I'm already on it anyway. This is a very cute blog, you seem to be a lot of fun and bubbly. I can just picture your southern accent and how adorable it is. You have a lot of whit. Plus I visit a lot of blogs where girls are wearing designer stuff which I love, but it can be a bit depressing when you are struggling in this economy. I love that you shop at Forever 21, I feel like I can relate more with that. Anyway, I love your blog and congrats on being engaged. Can't wait to read more, I will definitely be adding this to my must reads.
