Just Another Manic Monday


January 31, 2011

So much to accomplish this week with what seems like so little time…

But before I muddle on about the stress of moving into February, can we please spend a moment bragging about the spring-like weather that invaded Nashville this weekend? I stayed inside as little as possible just because the sun was out, my sunroof was open, and I think everyone had to get out of their houses winter cabins and take note that spring is indeed, just around the corner! 
Well, my glorious weekend started off at the bridal salon with my Mom to try on THE dress. I know others of you out there will understand when I say this–but after watching numerous episodes of “Say Yes to the Dress” where the brides don’t like their dress when they go in for alterations, I was a tad bit nervous… however, once they brought me into my room to twirl away and model, I remembered just why I selected my gown. I think I am still on a mental high from knowing that in only a few short months {and after a few small alterations are made}, I will finally be walking down the aisle to my Prince Charming.
That night, Mom and I enjoyed dinner at Bricktops–another one of my favorite Nashville places, and then I met Jeff for after-dinner cocktails at our neighborhood rendezvous spot, Park Cafe so we could work on our wedding necessities. Our bartender thought it very amusing that we needed drinks to “wedding plan” =)
Saturday morning, I got up early to do a bit of shopping and then we headed to the gym… that afternoon was spent working in the yard, and relaxing around the house with the windows open—ahhhh fresh air never felt so good. Saturday night, we went to the Grunke’s for pre-dinner drinks and then met our friends at Rooster’s to celebrate Aaron’s birthday. Fast forward to the owner delivering him 40 oz beers to enjoy and then we were off to Midtown for drinks and fun.
Sunday morning came earlier than expected, though we didn’t make it to church because my alarm clock just didn’t go off… BlackBerry, you and I are in a fight right now. We met my parents for brunch at Tin Angel and then went to a local theater to see a play called “Shakespeare’s Case” which was REALLY good…afterwards, we headed home to grill out and called it a night early–only after a night of stupidly humorous reality TV… yes, I made Jeff watch the finale of Bridalplasty {horrible I know}, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and then Holly’s World… I’ve officially gone to the dark side-ha!
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend, too! This week, we have our 1st girl’s book club meeting, a trip to the salon, lots of packing, and then Jeff and I are visiting family in California for the weekend–yay! I’m also working on a fun post for Superbowl party ideas so stay tuned.
