it's been almost 3 months since my last posting! a lot has happened in 3 months...
1. i had a lovely wedding shower thrown by my wonderful sister-in-law.
2. i planned all last-minute wedding details (transcontinental style.)
3. i got married!
i'm itching to see the rest of the professional pictures... from what i've seen so far, i'm impressed!
now that the wedding is over, i can share all my top secret wedding details:
- my kick ass day-of-wedding paper resource: baumbirdy. sarah was so easy to work with and the i loved the quality of the paper (coupled with the reasonable prices.) i first learned of baumbirdy from martha. the nella pocket program (seen below) was featured on martha's website. once i scoped out the etsy shop, i decided to simplify things by having sarah do my programs, menus, place cards, and seating chart.
even though wedding planning did consume a large portion of my time, it didn't occupy every second.... here are a couple discoveries:
1. pure barre.
after attending my first class i committed to a 1-month unlimited membership. if there's a studio near you, go. now. you will experience an addictive burn that will keep you coming back. if you're anything like me, you will feel stronger within a couple weeks... and your lululemon wardrobe will increase exponentially.
simple and inexpensive, this has become a favorite kitchen tool. i was hitting the green monsters hard prior to the wedding, and this little gadget makes it so easy (you can make it in a large cup, so cleanup is nothin.)
3. j. crew minnie pants.
they've updated these pants a bit since i purchased them (mine have a zipper with a hook-and-eye in the back) but the classic shape is still there. i was wearing these constantly on my trip (until an unfortunate accident involving abby and a carton of organic milk.) they are the perfect pants for travel and everyday.
