master chef!

Hi loves!!!

You should all know that I am still swooning over my dress. Not a day goes by that I don't look at a picture of her....sigh....I want to wear her every second of every day!!!

This week was fun, nice and short with Monday off. My birthday was a few weeks ago, and I had asked for the Skinny Italian cook book, by my all time favorite New Jersey housewife, Teresa Giudice. My entire family laughed at me, but my mother still went out and got it...THANKS MOM!!!! For the first time this week, I made my own pasta sauce, and it isn't half bad. The tomatoes were on sale at the market, and I have a huge container of it in my fridge, and one in the freezer. All things considered, this is turning out to be significantly less expensive than buying sauce, and my fiance loves it which makes it that much more rewarding, yay! I highly recommend that you all make your own pasta sauce at some point, regardless of which recipe you follow. 

I don't have any fantastic wedding news for you today, but I have found some cute ideas online:
A beautiful Gray Chicago Wedding, how beautiful are her bridesmaids?
A parasol to capture your message in your photos, can be purchased on Etsy. We are definitely doing this for our 'thank you' photo!

Officially a Maggie Sottero bride

Hi loves!!!!!
I have found her..the most amazing wedding gown...Maggie Sottero's Mona Lisa Royale. I love her :) I went shopping with my mother and grandmother in NH today (tax free yay!) at Marry and Tux Bridal. Our consultant Katy was the best. This was not a dress I had originally picked, Katy pulled it and we ended up loving it. Lesson learned, trust your consultant, she knows what she is talking about. We had an amazing experience at Marry and Tux, and I am so excited to have such a major to-do crossed off. 

I need to thank my amazing mother for making sure I could order the dress of my dreams. I am beyond in love with this dress, there is nothing I would change about it.

Feast your eyes on the most beautiful, cinderella, princess ball gown that you have ever seen:

In other, way less exciting news, I found the perfect fall handbag at forever21 for $28.00, and before you judge remember that I am a bride on a budget. Forever21 has some fashonista looks at good prices, it's hit or miss and you have to commit some time to digging through the clothes!!!
Perfect for some Jeggings, black leather boots and a tunic or love love it.
They have some cute jewelry stands that would be perfect for bridal shower favors, or for bridesmaid's gifts, and at $8.80 they are totally reasonable:
For all you students out there, or just out of college brides, the Steve Madden store gives a 10% discount to anyone with a valid student ID. I am 2 years out of college and they let me use mine, probably because I am the only loser who saved it and they felt bad hahaha....anyways, totally worth a shot next time you are at the mall and a great place to look for your wedding day look shoes!!!

I am off to scour the web for some shoe possibilities to go with my amazing, perfect dress.

Hi loves!!!

First I want to apologize for the weird spaces on some of my posts, I don't know why they show up, and when I try to get rid of them it gets worse....grrrrrrrrr, they annoy me.

Second, sorry for abandoning you for almost a month. I wasn't feeling super inspired but I am baaackkk! yay!

So...what has been happening in my life in the past month. Well, I made my first apple pie, and thats about it. Pretty exciting huh?

Wedding news:
I have made my first appointment to go gown shopping over Columbus Day Weekend. I am going with my mom and fiance. I know that some people may feel that this is breaking a tradition, or bad luck....but the truth is that he is my best friend and his opinion is the one that matters the most to me. When it comes down to actually choosing which one I want to purchase he will not know and I will most likely make that decision with my mother, maid of honor/bestie, and mother in law. 
I am already in love with several Maggie Sottero dresses, and I have a feeling that I will end up wearing one of her gorgeous gowns...I can't wait!!!!

Last time I told you all that I fell in love with moroccan lamps, well one of the ahhhmazing ladies on Project Wedding found 30 lamps for me on ebay for $130.00....EEEEPPPP, I love them!!!

Next week is my birthday yayyyyyy. Fiance took me shopping for a birthday present early and he got me the Tiffany Notes I Love You ring....aawww I love him!!!!

I am so excited to celebrate with my family this week, can't wait!! I will be back soon!!!
