A wedding dress and wine filled weekend

I know I was a lil' MIA last week, but I've been a little ball of nerves as of late and this lil' blog here doesn't help. So, I took a little break. But I'm ready to catch up!

And what was this girl nervous about?? Besides the fact that my wedding is in 2 months??!?!

My wedding dress is here!
*Clap your hands say yea*

It came in 3 weeks earlier than scheduled.
So A) I was suprised & B) I've only been in the gym for a week. eeeek!

On Saturday I went and picked it up with my mom and was super butterfly-ie because of course, I didn't know how it would fit. I was pretty darn nervous, not gonna lie. I talked to Lauren about it and we decided:

'its just an uneasy feeling'

But in a good way. Basically, It's just a tad nerve-wracking to think you have to monitor everything you put in your mouth because you may be too big or too small for one of the most important outfits you'll ever wear. Talk about pressure. Geesh.

I went with my mom because if that thing didn't fit... I did not want to be with a whole crowd of peeps. No entourage for this girl. Although, sometimes I wish I was an entourage type. But I'm not. I digress.

Here I am walking into Weddings by Debbie:


And taking a pictures with "The Dress"

Well it fit well, and my seamstress was a really cool french lady. She totally gets more cred for being a frenchy. Now, I'm getting to the point where I just want to show everyone and keeping it from people is getting harder, and harder. I'll be rocking a Pronovias 2012... can't wait to share with you guys :]


SO, how did I calm my nerves for this occasion? I curled up in the house and drank wine like a lazy bum. by myself, while ingesting little otherwise..lol



and painted my nails! My favorite thing to do when I'm nervous.

I started out Green on Friday..kinda experimenting with St. Patty's Day nails


I won't reccomend this color ... It's from Forever 21 and was chipping in a day. So I switched it up:

{Essie: Watermelon}

And I looked at pictures of nails on instagram for literally hours... I think by far instagram has the most pictures of nail art and I can sit in one spot and stare for hours. I got some really good ideas and plan to try some challenging stuff. Lets see how it goes bc I am no artist!

Then I ran sacked Sally's Beauty supply for all kinds of goodies to close out the weekend.

Hope everyone is doing well, especially with spring forward. I always groan at this time of year.
Love,

Woohoo on the dress!!! Mine came in 6 weeks early... omg. I hadn't even decided if I was going to wear shoes yet lol (wedding is in Mexico). So, I meet my dress in 2 weeks because I had to stall so much to wait for my shoes. I probably should consider getting my butt into the gym, too. Argh!

LMAOooooo ash. I kind of have a strange method to the order I paint my nails. I paint my right first, then my left, but paint BOTH thumbs last to clean up the mess
