Wedding Band Stress and Breakfast at Tiffany's Themed Bridal Shower!

Hi all,

This weekend was exactly what I needed after a fairly stressful last week. I naively thought that my fiancĂ© and I were going to make it through wedding planning process without any major stress because we gave ourselves so much time and neither of us are "high-maintenance" decision makers. Turns out, I was wrong!

We are 61 days out from the BIG DAY and we found out last week that our event coordinator at our venue retired AND that our band was quitting all in the same day. Luckily, after a full 7 days of slightly freaking out, we found another band that we are really excited to have at our wedding that was available! PHEW!

The two lovely ladies on Nicole's Big Day!

I had my final bridal shower with all my friends and soon to be new family members on Saturday. A huge thank you to my friends Nicole and Kat for putting together an amazingly themed party. Breakfast at Tiffany's!

Everyone was told to wear pearls and get ready to have fancy snacks when they arrived. The room was decked out with beautiful decorations and tasty snacks!

We had a great time and they even had a wall of photos of my fiancé and I throughout the years of our relationship. I felt really special and really loved. Especially as I was dressed as Audrey Hepburn from the original movie. (Well at least as well as I could)

I definitely indulged in some yummy snacks while I was there and spent the day drinking Mimosa's. It was wonderful and exactly what I needed to de-stress after that little hiccup!

One of my friends even made me a book of green smoothie recipes to try! I love green smoothies and make one at least 2-3 mornings during the week. I am so excited to try some of these new recipes!

On Sunday, I went on an excellent run with a new running buddy in McApline park. The goal was 4-5 miles and we ended up at 4.1 with an average pace of 8:45. Running with someone else always helps the workout fly by and it increases my speed. The first mile we ran in under 8 minutes. I wondered why I was so tired!

Next on the agenda for the wedding is my bachelorette party in March!
