With the countdown to the wedding in full effect we are tying up all the loose ends. Trying not to panic haha.

I started the morning by sewing beads onto my beautiful Mori Lee wedding gown. It was a floor sample so it needed some love. No pics because the dress is a surprise to Ryan. I tried it on again and felt beautiful. Something that was lacking with the others I bought. In other dress news, I sold the second J Crew dress to a super nice pregnant bride to be for what I bought it for. So glad I was able to sell the first 2 dresses and didn’t lose any money. Whoop!
Ryan and I took off to Nordstrom Rack and he found a Penguin belt that matched his Cole Haan shoes perfectly. He also bought his wedding bow tie (Penguin). It looks great with his navy Kenneth Cole suit. Thank you Nordstrom Rack for having great deals on man sizes. *Ryan says to leave the brands out of it but I’m documenting as much detail as possible as a reference. So there Ryan!

Next stop was Crate and Barrel where we did some exchanging. After was Cinderella Bakery to see if the size of the cake would fit on the cake stand inside the bird cage. The 7″ will fit perfectly! Hooray!!! The cakes there were amazing!
We headed to growers direct and trader joes to get the ingredients for pesto and chimichurri. We tested out the food processor that the Stanley family gave us. We logged the recipes in the Stanley cook book Carina gave us at my bridal shower.

I also figured out the “ring pillow” alternative. We have a bird theme so I thought it would be cute to have Jake walk up with a vintage bird cage with our rings inside it.

We got dressed in our Sunday best for Mother’s day at the Selke’s. Teri brought a bunch of family pictures to go through. We found a bunch of cute ones to use for the slideshow and vintage ones to print.
