Wedding Rings!!!

Today we got my wedding rings back from being sized.
I am very lucky because I am wearing my great grandmother on my mothers side of the family's rings.

The rings are from 1930 and are very pretty!
When we had dropped off the rings to get sized a week ago I asked the guy how do we know its our diamond?  He said because it is super old hahahhah!
Apparently back 80 years ago the diamond cutters were unable to cut the diamond in a perfect triangle which means in the middle of the bottom of the diamond it has a small flat area.

I just love the rings and am very happy my mom was willing to share them with me =)

LOVE IT!

What I Wore...Wedding Shopping

After the gym and lunch we went shopping for Grant's suit for the wedding.

We found the perfect look but sorry I can't show you any pictures of the full look because it is a surprise.
All I am going to say is he looked amazing!

The really good thing is we found everything in one spot woo hoo.

All Things Wedding

Guess what we are talking about over at my house?
WEDDING!

For the last 2 weeks we have talked about nothing but the wedding and for some reason I feel like there are still a million things to do regarding the bridal Shower and the wedding day.

At least this weekend I got a lot done thanks to Lacey!
Grant and I went down on Friday and stayed the night and Saturday the boys went surfing and Lacey and I went shopping.

I got all the candy for the cake/candy table
I got the material to make the center pieces
We figured out what we are doing for the Bridal shower and bought all the supplies
50's Decor for the wedding

Material shopping for center pieces.

Pretty flowers my mom bought

Today I stamped the candy bags with some cute stamps from the craft store.

The whole time I worked on the wedding Grant just relaxed painting hahhah what a life.
The more I plan this whole wedding thing the more I wish we just went to Vegas!
Just kidding.. or am I?

34 day till the wedding!

Early Surf

Sunday morning Grant and I woke up at 5am to drive down to Lacey's house so the guys could surf.
I fell back asleep on their couch till 9am haahhaha
I woke up to see Dean's cute little face peeking over the table at me =)
When the guys got back from surfing they went straight on the computer to look at waves! Go figure.

I love the way Lacey has decorated her house, I can't wait till I have my own place to decorate! 


Today I feel I have accomplished a lot.
I organized everything in our room.
We designed and sent out the bridal shower invites.
We made the drawers we bought from Ikea.
We filed for Grant's immigration change of status.
and much more I just can't remember right now.

When cleaning out my closet today I found a few dresses from the 50's that were my great grandma's!
They need to be taken in but I think they would be perfect on my cousins for my wedding, if they want to wear them that is.

I think they are so cute, if it wasn't my wedding I would defiantly wear one hahahhaha. 

Tomorrow there is another list to tackle but at least I can say I got a lot done today =)

Wedding Dress Shopping!

The day after we got back from Bonneville we went wedding dress shopping!
My mom and me and Grant all drove down to Lacey's house and then the girl cousins all took off for the wedding shop in LA.
Grant and Brandon went surfing and us girls took off.


We found the perfect dress, but sorry you have to wait till the wedding to see the dress cause its a super secret!!!

After the dress shopping we all went to Mexican food.
I didn't eat much cause I can't gain one pound or that dress will not fit.

Peggy Sue's Diner

On our drive home from Bonneville we stopped at Peggy Sue's Diner for a late lunch early dinner
also known as linner.

The whole restaurant is 50's themed!

The food is excellent! I had a cheese burger, curly fries, and a chocolate shake.



My mom and I were able to get some really good ideas for my 50's themed wedding too.





The main colors were teal and pink which are the main colors I picked for the wedding so... I am on the right path.
Tomorrow I am trying on wedding dresses so get ready!
(of course I can't show the exact dress but I can show the ones I don't get...maybe)

Bonneville Haze

We are still in Bonneville racing and it has become a little hazy on which day we did what.

Our race team has been running every day but we are having one problem after another and the car keeps getting slower!





Here is a picture of my art table I have set up to sell some of my prints =)


We are having a good time.
The Internet is so slow here I am not sure if I will have another chance to post, but I will try!
If not I will be back on Friday =)
