Two days before I saw "I Do"...

Ooooohhhhh...So close!  As of yesterday around 5:00pm, I am officially off the clock for my wedding and honeymoon!  I had my faux tanning appointment last night and I'm happy with the results - I have a small area on my right hand that needs a little fading but it's much better than pasty pale.  We ordered take out sushi and did some cleaning last night.  Our goal is to have all of our laundry done by tonight.

This morning I had a pedicure and I chose OPI Pinking of You for my nails.  I own this color and wear it sheer on my fingers to work but I had no idea how opaque it can get after three heavy applications.
I also purchased a new set of lashes for my wedding day.  The ardell wispies I wore for my bridal portraits were very dramatic and obvious, I wanted something a bit more natural for my wedding.  I've never worn this brand but I love the look...

I will keep a set of trusty Ardells with me in case I have trouble with these.  I helped my mom load all the wedding bins into her vehicle this morning and we have a mom / daughter manicure appointment this afternoon.  R is actually getting his nails done for the wedding late this evening, it was my idea, I thought his hands would look nicer for photos if he left the nail trimming and cuticle care to the professionals.

I wanted to talk about a new purchase for my "bridal beauty" YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #9 Caress Pink.  It's a gorgeous shade and very flattering for fair skin.
It's bittersweet that I didn't choose to wear my trusty Bobbi Brown lipcolor in Sandwashed Pink for the wedding since I used it for my bridal portraits.  This color brings so much life into my face I couldn't turn it down.  

I'm going to end the post with a picture of Baby ready for a long vacation at Grammy's while we are away.  We packed her thundershirt and her medication in case there are any storms or other "scary sounds" that cause her anxiety.  

R dropped her off this morning and said she looked like she was being abandoned :-(  I think this is the longest we have been away from her.

I've written a few blog entries that will post while we are away but I will not be posting "in real time" until the first week of April.  Tonight I will pack my bag for the best weekend of my life!
