My New Friends

I'm a little late in posting, but....Y'all, I got to spend some quality time with these lovely ladies, and it was just wonderful. I already knew some of these bloggers in real life (like, way before they were bloggers) and the others I am very happy to call new friends in real life.
Bottom Row: Me, Kendra, The Nester
Top Row: Jennifer, Kimba, Jill (SHE SO NEEDS A BLOG!), and Emily

This weekend was a busy one...
Friday, we took a quick road trip to Boone to pick up my wedding dress and have dinner at the Mountain House.
Saturday, we took a road trip to Raleigh for me to have my bridal portraits made and to have dinner with Justin's family. After "dieting" (aka starving myself) to fit into my wedding dress, it was like heaven to eat as much as I wanted for dinner at Mellow Mushroom.
Sunday, I taught dance all day, and finished just in time for Awaken. I love my church. Really. Afterwards we went to Krispy Kreme. Have you ever noticed how horrible your clothes smell after eating at Krispy Kreme? It was a little nauseating on the drive home...

Now that wedding invitations are finished, and the dark clouds of stress and envelopes have lifted, hopefully I will have more fun crafty things to post. (Did I tell you that my mom and I found urns on clearance a while ago at Old Time Pottery? only 99 cents! brilliant!)

I'm so glad things went well for you this weekend! It's nice when wedding stuff is fun and not stressful. And as mentioned before, I am eternally jealous of your fun brunch with the ladies. I can't wait to see you on Nov. 8th!

I am addicted to old time pottery!!!

Each one of these "we got to meet in real life" posts is making me more and more jealous!

What fun girls to spend time with! And congrats on the invitations...that's huge! It took me FOREVER to get those done back in the day.

oh my gosh you are so busy, but it sounds like you are getting so much done and checking things off your list one by one!!
p.s. I am so jealous that you had Krispy Kreme. I think the last time I had that was down at your beach house and we all wore the funny hats!!

Lauren, I just found your blog through Jen's. I just got married 17 days ago! I can't believe it's even been that long actually! It is so much fun! I am so excited for you that you are sooo close! Enjoy this time so, so very much!

One piece of advice if I may give it . . . when family and friends start arriving in town, whatever's not done that can be left undone, just leave it and enjoy hanging out with all of these wonderful people who are coming to see YOU!!!

God bless you in this hectic, decision-filled, wondrous time! Kelly
