Oolala, don't you just looove the polar bear skin rug?? lol The post is a dialog of what the guy on the cake is telling you and there are more pics. The dialog for this pic reads:
"Check it. I've got a spiky polar-bear-skin rug for us to lounge on, and some suh-weet champagne glasses the size of water coolers. I even put on my navy blue tighty-whities, 'cuz I know how much you dig those."
P.S. Last numbered post!

OMG, so exciting :) This was my first review ever in the business world because I was only at my last job for 4 months (long story.) I've been with my company for a year and 2 weeks now and just had my annual review today.
These are just tough times for everyone and I've seen that all around me from other blogger's losing their jobs, to my fiance losing business from clients due to hiring freezes (he's a recruiter), my dad losing his bread & butter accounts, my best friend not getting a title or financial raise even though she truly deserves it, etc. So that's why I am so grateful and thankful to have this job and even be in the position to receive a raise. Especially with having to pay for the majority of this wedding, it's going to help us out financially so much.
Just had to shout this from the rooftops because I'm super excited and so glad to have had a great first review ever!

Due to learning a little more about Google's way of doing things and how this blog can be found more easily related to each post's specific topics, I'm going to cease numbering my posts (even though it's fun to count!) I'll stop on #40 to make it nice and round...yes, I'm weird like that.
Also, I'm playing around with the style of this blog until I get some graphics created. So don't mind the ups and downs of my temporary decisions lol.
On to the real post:
Why am I thinking about this so much??? ...second guessing my bridesmaid dresses?! It's nervewracking and besides, it's not like I can do anything about it now anyway! I think I just wish I had had more time so the girls could've gone into the store in their city and I could've gotten more opinions about the style, the color, the fit. (Even still, Priscilla of Boston isn't in ALL their cities.)But do you ever see other bloggers post with your color scheme or something similar and then think to yourself, "omg that's gorgeous, should've I decided on something more like that??" I am just having crazy confusion right now on a lot of things...Is my wedding going to look how I really want it to? Is it really representing Mr. P and me as a couple? Is it representing our style and likes? I really really want to say YES! to all of those questions, but a little part of me is worrying that maybe I didn't spend as much time as I should've thinking about the style, color scheme etc that I truly wanted...because truthfully, I did kind of decide a few things just on the fly and then somehow it evolved without me taking some real time to think about it (besides the peacock part.) I mean, this could drive a person crazy! And I'm normally one to just say "oh, whatever" but it's so much harder to do that with your own wedding day!
Well, here is what I think the best course of action is to not have this lingering feeling of doubt and worry follow me throughout the next 4 months of planning (because that would be horrible)...
1) Forget about the bridesmaids' dresses! They're bought and paid for and there's no turning back, so why worry about it?
2) Take some time this weekend to really think about who Mr.P and I are style-wise as a couple
3) Think of ways to portray what I come up with from #2 in the wedding (on the cheap of course!)
4) Make a plan to execute #3
Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Looove the birdcage and feather together

What am I supposed to say, though? I really don't have "colors" that all the wedding is done up in. Anyone else have something similar going on? What do you say to keep it short when explaining?

Jujubee Designs at Etsy have these gorgeous invitation sets (I'd change the purple, though). Isn't this the right way to use an actual feather? I think, yes.
lol - the infamous last words before the final decision of the bridesmaid dresses are made. This book on Give Simple is only $7.99 and looks like it could really provide a lot of laughs. A cute gag gift for the bridesmaids? hehehe

I went to the Georgia Bridal Show this past Sunday with a girlfriend of mine. We entered for a ton of freebies. She got a call...a FREE cake! She's not getting married. So, it's MY free cake! Woooo!
A Cinderella Fairytale Wedding Cake...precious
I LOVE this one for a Bridal Shower
Could this grooms cake be any more perfect? Mr. P played football at Tennessee!
Can you tell my style from all these images? lol

Isn't she lovely? I think I've decided to plaster her on our simple thank you cards we got at Wal-Mart. (We're so on a budget lol.)
Check out sugarskull7's blog here, where she posts about all her really cool hand-carved stamps from her own sketches.
