Weekend Recap....(Thanksgiving Edition)

Thanksgiving was so nice and low key. The Turkey came out PERFECT and I totally have to give my FI a high five for making magic with that thing.

He started the turkey early that morning and it was ready by noonish….now on my end I didn’t roll out of bed until about 1:30 and I only had to do the sides, which took WAY longer than expected, plus I wanted to show off some of my culinary expertise and insisted on making everything by scratch. So we didn’t actually eat dinner until 7, but it was so GOOD, it was totally worth the wait.

We had Cajun turkey, buttermilk biscuits, mashed sweet potatoes and my take on green been casserole (Green beans, green onions, bacon, mushroom soup topped with turkey stuffing).

Then for dessert I went all out and made Banana Cream Pie all from scratch (and totally forgot to take a picture of it).

The rest of the weekend we just chilled out and enjoyed as much time together as possible. We picked out our wedding colors, Cobalt Blue and Grey

We purchased the look for the boy

(he is going to look so DAPER, and not so much like an Asian drug lord)

 I looked at dresses (which I am totally undecided on, but I do know I want something tea-length).

(Loving this dress, but can only imagine a boob falling out...just saying)

I had a horrible experience with a sales girls at David’s Bridal telling me that they only had 2 dresses in MY SIZE for me to try on…BITCH PLEASE…people can be so rude!! At this point I have looked at several online retailers and currently emailing with an Esty seller about a custom dress, so I will keep you informed. We also picked the venue for the ceremony; Dreamy is the only word I can use to explain it. It’s going to be picture perfect for our small intimate wedding.

I have to admit the whole idea of wedding planning was stressing me out, but all of sudden things are falling into place. 

We also went to the most AMAZING restaurant supply store; they had everything you could think of for super cheap. I had to really talking myself out the industrial margarita machine, but am really thinking about going back for the funnel cake supplies.

We also got some additonal work done on some old tattoos, when I get a chance I will post some updated pictures of the work.

You can kind of see mine in this picture...
