Last Random Post Before I'm a Married Lady

Welp, girls...this is the last random post on a Blonde Ambition before I become a married lady on Saturday...woah, Nelly! I have a feeling the randomness is only gonna get better though ; )

Actually, I have a feeling that with this new chapter in my life will come many good blog posts. Experiences become richer as we get older, new memories are made and new people are introduced. I really do think this is just the beginning for this little blog : )

1. Enough of that sappiness, let's talk about how AMAZING it has been to be off work this week. Lordy be, it's been great, y'all! I really don't know how people work the week before their weddings. I knew if I did, I wouldn't be able to focus on anything other than wedding stuff. A week of vacation time well spent, if you ask me.

2. Got a new dress yesterday at Francesca's at our local Promenade for the honeymoon...see below! It's a little bit boobalicious, but I feel like that's ok because:

a) I'm 26 and might as well show off the girls while gravity is still in my favor

b) It's my honeymoon and my honey will appreciate the, ahem, view ; )

3. Most of my family got in for the wedding last night and that makes me SO happy to get to see them for a few days before Saturday.

4. Speaking of weddings, I was looking at celeb wedding pics online and Kim Kardashian's popped up. I really don't love her headpiece that she wore...didn't really go with the dress...kind of Princess Jasmine meets Zsa Zsa Gabor..too much with the veil...thoughts??

5. I've had a Pumpkin Spice Latte every single day since the day they came out. Yes, I get the fat free milk, but ALWAYS add back the whipped cream. I feel in some messed up way, the skim milk balances out the 1,000,000,000 calories in the whipped cream, making this a completely acceptable, nutritious and low-calorie treat.  Please don't debunk my theory.

6. Somehow, through all the PSL's, I've still managed to maintain my wedding goal weight.

7. I'm currently obsessed with Vera Wang's new fragrance, Lovestruck. Lightly floral with a musky undertone, it's just beautiful.

8. I'm also obsessed with Make-Up Forever's new Smoky Lash mascara, below. It's sold at Sephora...go getcha some, chicas!

9. The high here today is 66 degrees! That is darn near fall weather! OH MY, could autumn finally have arrived???

10. Please lord, yes.

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. I LOVE your new dress :)


  2. Oh my gosh I have literally had a PSL almost every day too! They are my addiction. :) Yummm!


  3. Love the dress!

    I have that mascara and I just love it!

    Enjoy the next couple days!!!! :)

  4. Hahah I always get the PSL non fat but WITH whipped cream too! Happy Wedding Weekend!! :)

  5. wishing you the best on your big weekend!

  6. Leslie the dress is beautiful on you! I'm praying for you and Steven this week and I'm so excited for you! Marriage is an amazing blessing. I'm also praying for beautiful weather and a good hair day for you! Soak up every minute! xoxo

  7. CONGRATULATIONS!! Yep, your husband, if anything like mine, will LOVE the dress. You look gorgeous!!! Best wishes for a wonderful wedding and a long, happy and blessed marriage.

  8. Congrats again honey...enjoy every minute of it! Hope you can come by and check out my new link up today honey! Have a fabulous day! Kori xoxo

  12. SO HAPPY for you! Enjoy every moment of the next few days! And PSL's are my serious addiction as well!

  13. I can't believe your wedding is this weekend! Enjoy it and please post pictures soon!

  14. How nice to have a week off before the wedding. It'll keep you sane. Have a blast with your friends, fam, and soon to be hubby! I'm sure everything will go great!

  15. Thinking about you this week pretty lady! You are going to make a beautiful bride and I can't wait to see all of the pictures!!

    PSL's have become a daily must for me too! We'll be in Fay for the Auburn game in October so we should try to meet up!

  16. so happy for you!!!! cannot wait to see your dress and wedding photos. you will be a gorgeous bride.
    love how inspirational all your posts have always been. you are one special girl and you soon to be hubs is very lucky. thank you for everything you right about...it always speaks to us girls :)

  17. ohh my goodness, i cant wait to see the wedding pictures!! just try to soak it all in and enjoy every minute- it goes by so quickly!

  18. AHhh I'm getting so excited for you!

    I LOVE PSLs and wish I could get them every day!

    You look fantastic and I love that dress.

    And I hate KK's headpiece.

  19. have so much fun lady!!

    remember to take time to enjoy the day. and it will be amazing!

    see you when you get back mrs.!


  20. Love, love,love your new dress! Can't believe your wedding is finally here. So exciting!

    I'm in 100% agreement with your PSL skim milk balances out the whip cream theory. I do this with my PSL as well or whenever I splurge for a mocha (something has to balance out that chocolate!)

    Have an amazing wedding day! Hope you're scheduling a post of those bridals you teased us with to show up on the big day?

    xoxo, elizabeth

  28. Congrats on your upcoming wedding! Your dress is ADORABLE and I died laughing about being 26 and showing them off while gravity is still in your favor... I can attest to the fact that a decade and 3 children later... gravity is no longer a friend! lol :) So show em while you can!!! Have a great time!

  29. I just found your blog from Kelly's blog and I just spent the last several hours reading and catching up to today!! Can't wait to hear all about the wedding! It makes me (still a single girl) have hope!! Congratulations!!

  30. Love Francesca's--I've gotten a few dresses there that I always get compliments on. ;)

    The Starbucks across from my office is closed for renovations, so I've only had one PSL yet. I will absolutely be making up for this next week when my store re-opens.

    Can't wait to hear about the wedding. Hope you have a wonderful weekend with friends and family celebrating being a Mrs.

  38. Holy smokes! You are looking teeny tiny!! Seriously amazing. I vote that when you get back from your honeymoon you share your awesome diet/exercise secrets. I would seriously love the advice!

    You know a thought of you and your wedding week popped into my mind on my drive home. From the bottm of my heart I wish you the very best and most memorable wedding day. You will be a gorgeous bride and we can't wait to share in your moment via pictures when you return! :)

  44. I completely agree on Kim's look. No thanks. I love the fall weather too! EEK! It's your wedding week! Enjoy! :)

  45. Love the dress! I felt the same way about Kim Kardashian's headpiece. It definitely took away from the rest of the look. Congrats on the wedding, and enjoy!


  46. I've had a pumpkin spice latte everyday as well! It's my favorite time of year.

    Have an awesome weekend! I can only imagine how excited you are right now :)


  47. Happy Wedding Weekend my lovely girl! Enjoy every single moment, you truly deserve all the happiness in the world! Hugs and kisses coming your way, MRS!!!! :) xoxoxoox

  48. HOLY CRAP YOU'RE A MARRIED WOMAN!!! I'm a bit misty eyed here because I'm so excited for you and know my day is quickly coming too. I can not wait to see and hear all about it.

    That dress is amazing - perfect honeymoon gear!

    I agree 100% about Kim's look, I was NOT a fan. Of course her make-up looked amazing but that head piece was not my cup of tea!

    ENJOY YOURSELF SWEETHEART!!! I will be working up until wednesday before my wedding, I am insane, yes! oxoxo


  49. awww, congratulations!!! that is such happy news! :)

    p.s. i didn't like kim's headpiece either -- it's too much! :/
