The hydrangeas I designed the entire color scheme and feel around!
The hydrangeas I paid extra for to get the "perfect" color!

This morning instead of exfoliating my face in the shower I tried to use it on my hair. Getting those fine gritty pieces of scrub out of my scalp was a bit of a challenge.

Their cuteness is almost TOO much to bear. I would make the frosting a light blue and then have my awesome roommate pipe our initials on the top. However, right now I'm a little overwhelmed and the last thing I need to be doing is piping frosting on 100 cookie wedding cakes.
But it makes me really sad that I'm not making them...

After some great eats we played a game where I had to match the ear doctor's answers to a bunch of questions. If I got it wrong I had to put a marshmallow in my mouth.Needless to say, I wasn't very good at it. After games we opened gifts. I am so blessed to have such awesome friends in my life! I've been to all of their wedding showers and it was surreal to think that I was now the person in the limelight. So weird!
One of the questions from the marshmallow game was "What is the ear doctor's favorite physical feature of Katie's?" The answer: little mouth.

Except when it comes to buying Christmas gifts.
As the festive season starts I am very rigorous about setting limits for myself. I am very very good up until the week before the big day. At that point all restraint is pretty much thrown out the window and I buy things for people just because it looks like something they'd love. Usually I've exercised enough restraint leading up to the critical I'm-spending-like-a-mad-woman phase that I don't get into any trouble. Plus, Christmas comes so fast that the frenzy is pretty time restricted.
This wedding planning is becoming like the Christmas frenzy.
For the last 3 months I have been meticulous about our budget. Cutting things I may have wanted to reduce cost. I was bound and determined to only spend the allotted amount.
However, I'm in the home stretch and starting to feel signs that the self-imposed budget-keeping bonds are being loosed. Did we really need little picture clips for our centerpieces...probably not. Did I spend $30 on them yesterday...you bet I did. And now that we have the clips we'll need to get some really nice photos printed up to incorporate into our centerpieces...that will probably cost something. And did we really need to cleverly label our tables using the swirl pattern from the invitations to tie the paper all together? Labels that will cost additional from our printer....probably not. Am I going to do it?...yes.
The scary thing is that we've got 3 weeks left. That's a lot of time to do damage....
