Hi there! Happy Wednesday to you! This week is flying by. I think it’s because I worked a half-day on Friday and then I had off on Monday. So this is a shortened week for me. I am definitely not complaining! What is up with this weather though? It’s been freezing the past couple of days. I actually walked out of the house to some frost on my windshield. I’m glad I wore a sweater today too because it’s really cold in my office. The other day I was going through my closet which I still need to completely go through because it’s a mess. I ended up finding some sweaters that I completely forgot about! I was glad that I was able to wear one of them today. It’s crazy how one day it’s in the 80′s and then it drops to the 50′s. I don’t get it at all. It’s supposed to be chilly the rest of the week and then go down to the 40′s over the weekend. Brr!! I want spring back! Bring it back!
So yesterday when I left work, I kept thinking about eating a rotisserie chicken for dinner. The only problem was that we forgot to pick up one up from the supermarket on Sunday. So I stopped in the store on my way home and picked one up. I find that it’s very gentle on my stomach and I like the fact that the chicken is so tender and juicy. I actually prefer the rotisserie chicken from Boston Market but I don’t think you can just buy the chicken. I think you have to buy a meal so that was out of the question. I decided to try roasting some vegetables last night to see how my stomach would react. I also made Alexia Sweet Potato Puffs and Pillsbury Biscuits. At first I didn’t like the sweet potato puffs but now they are growing on me. I think I really like them. They taste good dipped in ketchup. What is your favorite way to have a potato? I like baked potatoes, fries (specifically steak fries from Red Robin), sweet potato fries, potato puffs and home fries. Can you tell I like potatoes?!
Enough about dinner! Let’s get to the main point of my post today! It’s Wedding Talk Wednesday! Today I am going to discuss some dresses that I have picked up to wear on our honeymoon or just anytime this summer. I am also going to show rose petals that I picked up.
I’ll start with the rose petals. For our ceremony, we are having an aisle runner which I am having custom-made with our monogram on it. We wanted rose petals to cover the entire aisle on either side of the aisle runner. I didn’t want real rose petals to bleed onto the aisle runner so that we wouldn’t be able to keep it after our wedding. I would like to frame the aisle runner so that our monogram shows and hang it up in our home. So fresh rose petals were out of the picture. I knew that we wanted purple and pink petals. I searched online and they were rather expensive. I actually started browsing Ebay. I found 1,000 rose petals of purple and pink for much cheaper than anywhere else! It was a huge bargain and saving. I made sure to check the ratings and reviews for the person who I was buying the petals from. They were sent to me from China and actually arrived pretty quickly.
I am the proud owner of 2,000 rose petals for our ceremony. The colors are exactly what I wanted. I am very happy about that!
They are going to look amazing next to all of the floral arrangements and the rest of the ceremony decor. I cannot wait!
I’ve been searching for various clothes to wear while we are on our honeymoon. It’s been hard because I don’t know what I want to wear. I know I need to get dressed up at night. So some nights I was thinking of wearing dresses. Other nights I was thinking of wearing a cute tank, with shorts and heels. The hardest part of finding clothes right now, is bathing suits! I am so picky! I tried on several at Target and hated them. I am trying not to order online from Victoria’s Secret because I really need to try them on. I’m also trying to not spend a fortune on them because I need at least 3 or 4 bathing suits. If you have any ideas of where I can find cute ones for not that much money, please let me know.
I’m first going to show you the dress that I bought from Kohl’s the other night. I think it’s cute and I love the belt that came with it.
The next dress is the one that I bought from JC Penney last week. This dress was only $15!
The last dress is one that I have posted a picture of. I am planning on wearing this dress to our rehearsal dinner. I got it from David’s Bridal.
Looking at the pictures of these dresses make realize I guess I love the one shoulder look? Haha. I didn’t realize that all of them were one shoulder dresses. I think I might need to bring a variety of some other dresses too. I’m just on the search for anything and everything I can find. I need to tear my closet apart because I know I have some clothes that I just can’t find. I know I have a cute pair of black shorts that would look super cute with a tank and my Badgley Mischka shoes. I just need to find them! If you have any outfit ideas or places where I can find cute clothes for cheap, please let me know. I’m all ears.
Well that concludes this edition of Wedding Talk Wednesday! I hope you enjoyed.
Have a great day!
