YEP, that is right 274 day until our wedding. 

Yesterday marked the 9 month mark. We are out of double digits here people!!! 

OMG, why does it feel like the time is getting smaller but the bank accounts aren't getting any larger???

I must admit the stress has really hit me. So many little details to get in order.

Yikes I'm started to get freaked out!

A little wedding inspirations:

Cant wait to wear a shirt like this!

Happy weekend!

Fill In The Blank FRIDAY!!!!

Oh I'm so excited to say that! Its been a hectic week! I had a NYS audit at work and although its the most stressful day of the year everything went great. We passed!!!! We have been dog sitting my future SIL's dog and she has been waking us up every night at 3am and 5am.  I miss my sleep!

Great news...My wedding dress has arrived at the store and I made an appointment to go try it on in 2 weeks. I can't wait to put it on again!!!! :)

Today I'm linking up with Lauren and Fill in the Blank Fridays over at The Little Things We Do.

1. My favorite color is GREEN but I love anything blue also.

2. My travel destination of choice would be Hawaii! If only I didn't have to fly so much. I know I would stress more about the flight and not the destination.

 3. My favorite food is sushi! I love it. I can't get enough of the stuff. I think I may actually have it for dinner tonight.

4. My happy place is the corner of my couch cuddled up with my honey and a glass of red wine. Or on my back desk looking at the woods and backyard visitor like last night, a bear and a skunk.

5. My favorite saying is Ummm ""Karma is only a b*tch if you are" and I really love this and try to live by this one...."Believe in yourself and ALL the you are. Know that there is something inside of YOU that is GREATER then ANY obstacle"- Christian D. Larson

6. My dirty little secret is that I once hooked up with an ex who had cheated on me. I only did it b/c he was still dating the girl he cheated on me with and I wanted her to feel as bad as I felt when it happened. I also made sure she foundout. I was a b*tch and it was mean. I wasn't in a good place in my life and I was onto a lot of anger.

7. Something friends might say about me is that I really enjoy having fun and trying new things.
Have a wonderful day lovelies!!!

10 Day You Challenge-BOOKS

Happy Tuesday. I'm attempting to get back into the swing of things after a 4 day weekend. I can only imagine how many post it notes are sitting on my desk today, ugh! I'm also been trying to get used to this new Mac operating system. I'm a creature of habit and I don't like change! Hopefully it won't take to long. 

I should probably read more then I do. I am a book brat. However, when I love a book its usually finished in a few short days. Then I mope around for a few days because its over!

Mr. Maybe by Jane Green
Mr Maybe
I loved this book! She writes in the perspective of a young, 20 something who isn't perfect and trying to find love. Another one I'm going to sneak in is Straight Talking!

Dispaches From The Edge by Anderson Cooper

Dispatches From the Edge
This book AMAZED me in so many ways. I have a monster crush on AC but this was so well written. I even went to the book opening  and had him sign a copy!

3. The Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger

Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre
This was one of the first books I remember really loving in high school.

The Help,  Kathryn Stockett

The Help
This is the one next on my reading list!

What have you been reading lately?

Exciting purchases

I'm super excited!!!!

I have found my bridal shower dress and I am in LOVE! This picture doesn't do much justice but silhouette and ribbon empire really is beautiful and looks great on my body type. Plus I'm a sucker for lace.  My favorite part is I picked it up for $50!

Evan Picone

I also stubbled upon the Jessica Simpson Dress collection in Nordstoms and holy crapper I LOVE them. They are super feminine and figure flattering. I may have to go back for a rehearsal dinner dress. This is by far my favorite. Imagine how cute it would be with a pair of nude pumps!

Another exciting purchase were wedding shoes. I want to make sure I added some color to my wedding and shoes were a place I knew I could do it. I have been trying to find shoes with a small heel. I love my fiancĂ© but he is only 1 inch taller then me and I always feel like a fat amazon woman when I wear heels. (Do they maker heighters for men's shoes???)  There is color and the heel is modest enough for me to walk and feel comfy. I think I may have found the perfect ones. I really like them however not sure is I am loving them but its ok they were only $14!

Sadly, momma didn't find a dress today but I am confident we will get it some time soon!

Happy Monday!
