Christmas 2010

Soooo many things happened over these last few days. I want to remember it, so why not document it right here on the blog, right?

I sent out an email to the dress shop a day or two before Christmas eve, asking when my dress would be in. I got an email on the day after Christmas which surprised me and it said that my dress hasn't hit the 6 month order mark yet but it should be here in February (here come the caps lock) "PLEASE DON'T WORRY YOUR DRESS WILL BE HERE IN TIME." In time for what? The actual day of when I may not even fit into the dress? Yeah...that doesn't make me nervous at all.

Richard and I got absolutely spoiled this Christmas. In fact, I would say the most used phrase of the evening at his grandparent's house was "you don't get married every year". We got the rest of our pots as an early wedding gift from his grandparents, as well as some other kitchen goodies.

yes, our kitchen is Disney theme

super cute

I also got this Betsey Johnson watch...yay!
from mom and dad

By Mom and Dad, I don't mean the people who made me. I mean, Richard's parents. Whoa. There is Richard's 16 year old cousin handing out gifts saying "To Jen, From Mom and Dad". Wait, my parents sent me a gift here? Oh.... I've only had one person in his family tell me, don't call me Mrs. whatever and that was his aunt. This would really be a lot easier for me if you just told me to call you Mom and Dad. Though, I think my mom did the same thing to Richard...

We also spent part of Christmas eve with my grandparents and family. We ate dinner at about 9pm and only watched the best of tv: Criminal Minds and some other shows where people got murdered left and right. Needless to say that when I was left in the apartment alone while Richard went to look for a parking spot, all the lights were turned on and I ended up calling him to make sure that nothing happened to either of us.

Christmas day was celebrated by watching Disney's Christmas parade, as it has in my life since whenever it started back in the 80's. Then I got a call from my brother telling me to get to my parents house because my mom was not letting him open anything until I got there. (For those of you wondering, yes my mom is awesome and still gives us Santa gifts.) So of course, I watched some more parade and then got out the door. It was a nice day. We went around the table telling stories about those who are no longer with us and ate a lot of food. My aunt gave me an old Disney mug that we once bought for my grandma. It's a nice thing to have.

Richard and I kept our tradition of exchanging gifts at 11:45 pm on Christmas day. It's a way to still keep Christmas going and have our own time together on that day. It was pretty lovely. Some of the things we bought weren't here yet so we showed each other things on our phones. His collection of Cowboy BeBop is complete and my collection of Felicity is just starting. :) I also got some pretty flats that were featured on a tuesday shoesday post and an awesome necklace from etsy. Yeah, I'm a lucky girl.

Today I'm planning to buy some after Christmas stuff on sale and make the most of our shower money and gift cards. Exciting stuff, right? :) I hope Santa was good to you too!!

Thursday Purseday

So I'm thinking damn...I still don't have a gift for anyone. For the wedding, that is. :) I'm on the hunt for a little clutch for groomsgirl and jr bridesmaid.

love the color and design

love this. a lot.

tutus work too :)

I'm starting to think that I should be getting jr bridesmaid something more grown up...what do you think? What are your favorites?

Tuesday Shoesday

While hitting up Old Navy in search for some shirts for my jr bridesmaid and flower girl's Christmas presents, I found these lovelies.

ooh, pretty gems

I get sidetracked when I can't find anything I like. Now, considering I'm wearing heels that are 4 inches for about 6 hours, I think these would be nice to change into. I do, however, have to wear the heels for our first dance though. Richard is a foot taller than me!

Thursday Purseday

Of course, a new Betsey Johnson purse is on my Christmas list again this year and here's the one I'd like. Santa, are you ready?

please? it's on sale!

Happy Thursday Purseday to all and to all a good night.

We interrupt your normally scheduled TuesdayShoesday with real life wedding inspiration.

Yesterday, I did some marathon Christmas shopping. Meaning I was sitting at a computer pretty much all day looking for gifts for the people that made the cut this year. (We are paying for a wedding after all...) Anywho, I ended up looking for some Taylor Swift stuff for my junior bridesmaid because it's now my goal to keep her away from all things Miley. That's right Katelyn, write mean songs about boys...don't touch that bong!

While hunting around, I found that she is selling headbands from! Um..
.hello...I'm so looking for a headband for the wedding!

so sweet and simple

reception look

Can't I have both?? The thing that makes me nervous is I really just want to wear my hair down. Can I still do that with a headband?

Oh, the things brides think of...

Thursday Purseday: Navy

In the spirit of having a bag that can last you all winter long and not just the holidays, I give :)

this is just fun

a coach purse all grown up ladies can agree on

you know I can't say no to sequins

You know how Sophia Petrillo carried around that wicker bag everywhere she went? That's going to be me, except my little bag is going to be covered in sequins. Let's hope that I'm just as funny as her and that all of my stories begin with "picture it, Chicago..." :)

Wedding Party...Dressed!

So it's official, everyone in the wedding party is dressed! The groomsgirl has a dress, as does the junior bridesmaid, the boys have suits, I have a dress...the only one who doesn't have something to wear is the groom. Don't worry, we're on it. Big fan of Kenneth Cole. :)

So the 2 girls aren't completely uniform but I think they'll fit well together. Wanna see? Let's give you a refresher on what the groomsgirl is wearing...

and it fits her perfectly :) no alterations needed!

super cute and age appropriate

So the thing about the jr bridesmaid dress? Yeah, it's not going to be in until a few weeks before the wedding and we're hoping it's going to fit her well since she's growing. (In more ways than one! The 9 year old wants a cell phone for Christmas!)

And let's remind you what the boys are wearing...

sharp and snazzy

Oh man...our wedding party is going to look so good.

Tuesday Shoesday

I should be looking for a holiday outfit and shoes since I'm going to be spending the holiday for the first time ever with someone else's family. I'm thinking red is the way to go...

i'm thinking candy cane

sparkly shoes+holiday=perfection

thought these were fun, don't you?

There's just something life changing about red shoes. Maybe that's why Dorothy could pull it all off. :)
