I took off work last Friday because a) I have a lot of PTO to use, b) I needed to have a hair trial and c) I
The day started out with my usual 5:15 a.m. MWF workouts - mornings are not my thing so I amaze myself 3 times a week by dragging my hiney out of bed and to the gym before the rest of the house is even awake (and yes I'm shamelessly bragging!!). After a quick shower, it was time for a trip to the salon to see my lovely Sarena and see just what kind of hair I would have on the wedding day!
After pointing at a million pieces of pictures and saying "I like this about this one, that about that one, and please don't do this like this one!" Sarena put together exactly what I had pictured! Of course, you're not getting pictures of it here... I mean what's the fun in that?

After getting my nails done, I met Caylee for lunch and running errands all over the city. Basket Market, like Hobby Lobby's little sister, is my new favorite place.
|I need your vote! Light pink nails like this or French tips for the wedding?|
After a Friday night making hostess gifts and discussing wedding details, I finally felt much better about all I still have left to do - it's a lot, ya'll!
Saturday started off the parties portion of the weekend with a Bridal Brunch at 10:30! We were Betting on Love at the Kentucky Derby theme shower complete with (virgin) Mint Juleps and big floppy hats! We're getting Married on Derby Day so it was a perfect way to celebrate. I didn't take a single picture so I've had to swipe some from the girls who were there. I know mom and I took one, but I can't find it - she wore the hat/veil she wore at her wedding and looked awesome - I'll be sure to post as soon as I find it! :)
|Aren't my friends the cutest?|

|Look close - that food? Delicious. Thanks to my Aunt Kandi for her hard work!|
Saturday afternoon, Magan, Weezer and Lori so kindly kicked me out of my own house, so Matt, Caylee, Meg and I went shopping! We picked out a washer/dryer then hit the Outlet Mall.
Saturday evening was the bachlorette party, and thank goodness they kept it on the tame side :) We enjoyed dinner at Spaghetti Warehouse followed by games and movies at my house (we kicked Matt out for the evening!).

Sunday afternoon my church hosted a shower for Matt & me. Family and friends came and I was absolutely blown away by the love (& Keurigs!! haha) we were showered with. I cannot adequately say how blessed we are and how thankful I am for my family, friends and FBC Tuttle family. I know I have more pictures on Momma's camera, but I have no idea where that might be!

I know I have so much more I want to share - hostess gifts, glue gun woes, and maximizing your $$ at Hob Lob - I'm a pro by now - but my brain is just all jumbled. I'll be back soon with more excitement and maybe a few DIY's that I've loved :)
But for real - pink or French tip nails? #BrideProblems :)
