Wedding Tasting

Wedding Tasting

This weekend was so much fun that it flew by and I needed the first part of the week to recover, haha! Now that I am, I wanted to share our wedding tasting from this weekend. We had our tasting at our caterer, Cloud Nine, on Saturday afternoon. Going into it, we weren’t really sure what to expect, although we had to provide them with our tasting options from their (incredibly extensive) menu in advance. We had to choose one of everything that we’ll get for the wedding day: our stationary table option, 4 hors d’oeuvres, one soup or salad, two protein entrees,  one veg entree, one starch side, one veggie side, and dessert. There’s a little bit of pressure because if you don’t like something, you won’t get to try what you swap it out for (or you have to pay to do a second tasting  because only one is included for free).

Luckily, we LOVED everything we tried! And they served us wine along with our food, which made it even better!

Bridal Shoes

Now that I’ve found my wedding dress (it still makes me so excited to say that!), I’ve started to look for other accessories I’ll need for the day, as well as my shoes! From what I’ve seen so far, the majority of bridal shoes are not particularly flattering. For some reason, most of them look like they were designed for women my grandmother’s age, and I want a pair that is pretty enough to show off! While I would love to rock a pair of Valentino’s (I can dream), those are way out of my price range. But I’ve found some options that don’t break the bank, and that are cute enough to possibly re-wear if an occasion ever came up (ya know, like if I ever get invited to a red carpet event haha). Betsey Johnson makes a really cute bridal line, Blue, and I’ve featured a bunch of those shoes here, in addition to some others I came across:

Happy Monday, Leap Day, and New/Old Beginnings

Happy Monday, Leap Day, and New/Old Beginnings

Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! And Happy Leap Day!

It’s an exciting week for me because tomorrow is my last day at my job. I am actually returning to my old job, which I left almost exactly 1 year ago. I don’t regret leaving, and I think that time away has given me a welcome, and necessary, perspective. I think that this will be a good decision for me for a lot of reasons. Anyway, I’m really freakin excited to go back!

In gearing up for the week, the fiance and I may have gone a *little* overboard with celebrating this weekend (is that possible?) We went to brunch on BOTH Saturday and Sunday! haha. We had two amazing meals:
