ellen has been helping me turn some old doors into my headboard. so far we have only gotten the first coat of paint on. once they are finished i will post all the steps but here is a sneak peak!
last monday (as in over a week ago, oops still bad at blogging) i met with wendy putt from fresh cut floral and catering - she pretty much has saved my life when it has come to this wedding. her stuff is absolutely amazing and she is
good AMAZING at what she does. we finalized everything from food to flowers to seating to ceremony to reception, i mean that lady can put together an event. i always thought i would be really picky about my wedding and have so many ideas and what not, but truthfully, i trust her and i know she will do a good job- and in trusting her, i have been able to just enjoy being engaged and all the celebrations without being stressed out about every little detail. seriously, thank you Lord for wendy putt!
tuesday, i FINALLY went and saw the help. it was so great. i laughed, cried, and i .loved. seeing all the great places in mississippi. props to fondren. you looked .great. and i cannot imagine jackson without your quirky awesomeness.
wednesday... will took me to see PETER PAN! so he is totally not into broadway shows and what not like i am, which is fine with me as long as he will take me every once in a while. and he did. and he loved it - i even caught him smiling a couple times. i saw it when i was like 11 at the orpheum in memphis and this time around it was even better. dear cathy rigby- i hope when i am in my mid fifties i still look as young as you...
and for those of you who do not know who she is (shame on you) she was an olympic gymnast in 1968 & 1972
thursday was pretty uneventful- friday we met up with our good friends will and lindsey at Pelican Cove at the reservoir. it was so great getting to catch up with them. good weather, good company, great time.
saturday we headed to see the bulldogs play! tailgating was .great. game... not so much.
and finally now we are sitting around the house, just made some homemade shrimp fried rice ( i am getting better at fried rice, but i can't wait 'til my mother will let me make use of the wok that mary tyler allison and erin gave me. she insists that wedding gifts cannot be used until after the wedding. i understand, but, boo.
so here is a little phone dump for ya
sweet oldest bestest friend amie
bachelorette party/tropical storm
bravo dinner and wine night- yummm
its tailgating season!
day trip for work to natchez- yes that is a restaurant where you literally
eat inside the lady's (mammy's) skirt
i made some .amazing. bbq shrimp out of Cookin' Up a Storm - only the
best cookbook ever. it is a collection of new orleans recipes that were sent
into the newspaper after hurricane katrina. everyone lost their family recipes
so the times-picayune published them in the paper! so amazing. each recipe has a story
this is a house on north state street. hopefully it is going to be
renovated soon! i got to go snoop around it today- another reason why
i love my job!
pshew... that was a long one. for those of you counting- wedding weekend starts a month from tomorrow. yessssssssssssssssssssssss.
ps. the house still stinks, but i was up on the roof earlier and we think that we .finally. have found the issue. now if only i could get will to fix it!
