We've had a couple of mini-scares- one involving the groomsmen's ties- big thank you Kate, from elefantitas elegres, for introducing us to the awesomeness that is The Tie Bar.- while packing them for the trip to Phoenix for the wedding, I counted them and realized that Mr. Wonderful hadn't purchased enough of them. We rush ordered the final tie, crisis averted... Until I had a sinking suspicion that I should also double-check the groomsmen and ushers' morning suit orders with Men's Warehouse.
Turns out, one of our groomsmen had yet to show up for his measurements, and the deadline was a scant 3 hours away. No fault of his own, really- he's been on active duty in Iraq for over a year, and had just recently returned to the states. Luckily, Mr. W got in touch with him and had him phone in his measurements to be processed for the wedding. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a major internal freak out over the idea of being one morning suit short for the big day, but I'd like to think I handled it with style and grace (and a bit of vodka).
With 12 days left until the wedding, we have a score of Lulu - 2, major disasters - 0!
I also wanted to send some serious thank you love over to Mojito Maven- My darling MM and Mr. Mojito sent us the most *perfect* wedding present - a fabulous mojito kit! I about died when I opened it, it's the most creative gift! Big thank you hugs and kisses to you, MM... Can't wait for you and the Mr. to make it out to NYC for mojitos!
This weekend was a whirlwind- I had to wash all of my honeymoon clothes (big post about that coming up soon!), and try to get all other "weekend" things out of the way, as I leave for Phoenix on Saturday morning. I plan on having my honeymoon suitcase packed in its entirety no later than Wednesday of this week, so I won't have to stress. (Packing always sends me into a mini-meltdown, just trying to prevent a total pre-wedding freak out.)
While I was going through all of my honeymoon clothes, I realized that I had totally forgotten to get one of the key pieces to my honeymoon theme (you read that right- my honeymoon wardrobe has a theme and I *love* it!). I've been dying to get a classic L.L. Bean boat tote in navy, with my new monogram on the side. I ordered one for rush delivery, and am praying it makes it to NYC before I leave!The Mr. and I took advantage of my new work-related 15% off discount at J. Crew by buying him a brand new honeymoon wardrobe. Thank goodness for my new discount, because this man did some serious damage! I swear, we're going to look like a J. Crew catalog on our honeymoon. No complaints here, though!
I also treated myself to a long-desired present - the Clarisonic Skincare Brush!
I've decided to start buying myself one fun treat each paycheck, and this seemed like a fitting pre-wedding splurge! I'll let you all know how the results turn out.
I also received a little splurge from Mr. Wonderful after his shopping spree - he took me to Williams-Sonoma for a little treat! I have been completely obsessed with the pink and green kitchen towels and dishcloths for as long as I can remember... The Mr. bought me a set of each in the pattern below!
Having something like this almost makes me want to do the dishes! (Almost.)
I hope you all had a happy and eventful weekend!
