Everything's Coming Up Roses!

Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope you've been having a great and productive start to Spring. Can you believe it- Mr. Wonderful and I are getting married in less than a month! Thanks to an amazing fiance, a supportive bridal party, a creative parents, and the world's most organized and calming planner, I can honestly say that I am feeling NO stress about this wedding! Sure, I may not have solidified a hairdresser or started the seating arrangements yet (which I'm sure may bring out a minor bridal freak out), but still! I'm just so thankful to be *having* a wedding, to the man of my dreams no less, that even if the sky opens up and pours on my garden reception I'll be the happiest girl on earth.

I have to say, I can't remember a time where I have been more busy and have had more amazing things come my way. Believe me, it has been a welcome change to the tumultuous 5 months I've just been through. I couldn't feel more blessed and appreciative of everything going on in my life! Just warning you now- if you're not in the mood for some serious cheerfulness, I say star this post in Google Reader and come back to it at another time. The stars have aligned and God has been GOOD to us, so I couldn't have anything negative to say if you paid me!

Here's a little recap of what I've been up to over the past 2 weeks:

My bachelorette party? A complete dream come true! I spent 5 full days in Scottsdale, Arizona, working on wedding plans and spending time with some of my nearest and dearest girlfriends. We relaxed, we ate great food, and spent some serious quality time together. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect way to ring in my final days before becoming a Mrs. I'm planning a big recap post soon, as soon as I can wrangle the pictures from my girls (start sending them, ladies!)

I switched gears on Tuesday, travelling from Phoenix to my company's Headquarters in Atlanta for my first business trip. I spent the remainder of the week practically living in the office- attending meetings and getting to know our business counterparts. Even after all the meetings, acronym translations, and database briefings, I still don't think I could love this new job more if I tried. Great business trip.

I was able to catch an early flight home on Friday, which gave me a nice jump start to the weekend. At this point, I had been away from home for *8 days*! Needless to say, I was ready to see Mr. Wonderful. He took me to a local Mexican food restaurant his coworker recommended. Who were we seated next to? None other than Cameron Mathison from All My Children and his family. Too fun.

We capped off the weekend by discovering our new favorite weekend to do-
mixing brunch with real estate hunting! We spent our days trolling the Craigslist no-fee rental listings on my Blackberry while sipping mimosas at some of the local sidewalk cafes. We alternated cocktails and open houses all day, it was the greatest! We met some great people, and saw some AMAZING apartments, including a garden apartment with a 450 square foot private back yard. In Manhattan. Could you *imagine*?!?! We're not looking to move until our lease is up this summer, but it was a great way to see our favorite neighborhood and catch up on life.

If you can even imagine, I have more fun things to share - Mr. Wonderful's big birthday, our engagement photos, and a *humongous* wedding recap... Stay tuned!
