Fabulous Weekend on the Horizon


March 25, 2011

that’s right ladies–so many exciting events this weekend has this girl itching for 5pm to roll around quickly! i’ve got places to go and people to see..

tonight, we are celebrating one of my bestie’s birthdays–ms. broadway is turning 27 on sunday so we’re having a fun dinner party at bosco’s–yay for another youngster entering this fun land of 27…broadway is an incredible friend {and one of my dear bridesmaids} and i can’t wait to spoil her with baked goodies among other things tonight!

on saturday, we have this fun little event to go to…otherwise known as my very first bridal shower! yall, i can’t even begin to tell you how elated i am to kick-off the festivities–mom and i have been shreeking with excitement in preparation for what’s approaching and i can’t wait to have some of my close friends and family together! although i have to admit, i am so nervous about opening presents in front of people so this is going to take some getting used to…
i’ve got my outfit all ready to go–the springtime weather has gone haywire here in nashville, yet i’m not going to let it bother me…a ruffled silk navy dress with nude patent platform sandals and a fun matte champagne and gold bauble necklace has me decked out in bride-to-be attire! here are a few items for my outfit below!! {the dress isn’t exact, but similar}

tomorrow evening, we’re headed to meg and aaron’s new place for their very first cookout! aaron finally got himself a grill and we’re breaking it out while some very important people are in town… it’s going to be a blast to relax the rest of the night and have quality time with great friends! plus, any excuse to cook hamburgers and hotdogs is alright in my book!

then to round out the weekend, i’ll be venturing a bit east to celebrate with jenna {my honorary bridesmaid} for her baby shower… my sweet lady is due right around the week of the wedding so we’re hoping mr. ian comes a few days early so she can celebrate, too! jenna and her husband matt are going to be incredible parents–they have such strong faith and an amazing support system and i can’t wait to see all the fun baby gifts!

i hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! i promise to take loads of pictures for your viewing pleasure, too–of course have to get fun items for the wedding festivity scrapbook! OXOX

    Have such a super weekend!! I can't wait to hear all about the festivities! 🙂

  8. Have a BLAST! This weekend is our very first engagement shower – and it's a couples shower, so that takes some of the edge off of opening presents. 🙂 I'll make HIM do half the opening!

    Hope your first shower went well!! It is a little awkward opening gifts by yourself but I guess you get used to it after the first 2 gifts so it's not so bad. I just had my last shower yesterday…so bittersweet!! Hope ya got lots of good stuff!! 🙂 It's always like Christmas the morning after our showers! xoxo

  15. what a fun-filled weekend!! i love the red top in the bottom picture– did you get it recently? if so, where?

  16. Fun times! Hope you had a great weekend girl!
