We got an email yesterday stating that the location we had chosen was all of a sudden booked for that date. They had told us they weren't booking for 2011 yet, but magically they now are. Kevin and I were infuriated. Now we're back to square one....UGH
Why is it so hard?! I JUST WANT TO BE MARRIED!

This blazer fits perfectly and looks adorable with the sleeves cuffed and paired with some dark jeans. Great for the "work to night out" wardrobe.
This dress also comes in black and red.....I might have to go back to grab those :)
This dress also comes in a brown print that would look adorable with brown boots! (Maybe I'll go back to grab that dress as well)
I also picked up a long sleeve white tee, a short sleeve v-neck tee with flower ruffle design, grey pinstripe dress pants and two cardigans (white and teal). All and all I made out like a bandit!
Wedding Plan Updates:
We've finally picked a date! May 14, 2011!! We're meeting with the priest tonight and we're going to see three venues tomorrow. Wish us luck! Hopefully I will have more details for you on Monday.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I was hoping for a really fun and relaxing weekend of nothingness...but life always seems to keep me on my toes. Friday night Kevin's band had a show at a wine bar in Portland which was fun, but we didn't get home until the wee hours of Saturday morning. We were supposed to go to the seafood festival in Hampton during the day on Saturday, but it decided to rain all day. Since all of the vendors from the festival are basically within walking distance to us, we decided not to spend the day in the rain. Looks like I'm going to have to go out and grab me a lobster roll this week to make up for it! Instead Kevin's parents needed us to help them build a new front porch on their house. They live in Maine, and luckily it wasn't raining there. It was still a disgusting day to be outside though and we were not too pumped to spend the day doing construction. Blahhhh
Yesterday we went to church and finally spoke to the pastor about joining the church and getting married there. We could tell that he already loves us! We just need to call the rectory to make an appointment to meet with him this week to get the ball rolling. (I mentioned to him that we are looking at May 2011 for the wedding and he said that they haven't even gotten a scheduling book for 2011 yet! Looks like we won't have any trouble scheduling a date!) And apparantly he went to the same college that we did- one more point for us!
After church we ran to the store to get home in time for the beginning of the first football Sunday of the season. Question: How do you non-loving football ladies do it?! I mean, growing up my dad always watched football on Sundays, but since we had more than one tv in the house it wasn't a problem. We only have one tv in our apartment though, and it was made very clear yesterday that it would be used soley for football on Sundays from now on. Funnnnnnnn. NOT. Oh well- I made it very clear that although football is on Monday nights as well, the new Gossip Girl season starts tonight...meaning that from 8-9 the tv is mine! We'll see how long that lasts though :)
We rounded out the day by going to my sister's for an early dinner. It was her husbands birthday and a nice relaxing end to the weekend. So we didn't have as much downtime as we had wanted, but there's always next weekend!
Good luck with the start to your week ladies!
P.S. An updated wedding details post to follow tomorrow!

I am a pearl girl all the way :) I'm so excited to wear these beautiful pieces not only on my wedding day, but for years to come. I can't wait for them to arrive!!!
The store on etsy that I purchased them from can be found here: japonicas. Jet was amazing to work with. I would highly recommend using him for custom pieces in the future.
Happy hump day everyone!
