Work Shower and the Weekend Before the Wedding

My coworkers planned the sweetest little lunch shower on Friday.  There was chicken, prosciutto wrapped cheese, fruit, dip and chips, and cake...

 We were gifted several bed bath and beyond gift cards which we used to purchase our Calphalon cookware set.  

This past weekend was busy busy!  We purchased the beer for our reception - Natty Greene, yes please!  We had lunch on Saturday at Coquette in North Raleigh our sandwich and salad was delicious.  

In the afternoon we finished some wedding our escort door.
 On Sunday I purchased my wedding lipstick - YSL #9 Caress Pink.  We also drove down to my mom's house and packed up all the items for the ceremony, reception, bridal luncheon, and rehearsal dinner in plastic bins and totes.  It's all ready to go!  We even sterilized all the mason jars and had time for movie night (a netflix pick, Something Borrowed).  My MOH and her husband printed our programs on Sunday too - another item checked off!

R made my all time favorite dinner...Noodle Bowl!  He was a bartender in college at a restaurant that served it...soba noodles, veggies, and shrimp in a delicious ginger / crushed red pepper broth.
This week is all about the beauty...nails, tanning, hair, etc.  On Thursday, mom and I will load her vehicle with the bins that we packed and R will load the alcohol and larger items in his truck.  All the planning and prep is done and only a few more days to wait!


  1. It's all coming together! I am so excited!

  2. Happy Wedding Week!! Congratulations! Can't wait to hear all about it!
