Weekending – Most Gorgeous One To Date

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
I apologize to all my Northerns this weekend down here was one in the books for being absolutely perfect.  Bright gorgeous blue skies, shining warm sun and absolutely zero humidity.  If I could put my request in for February 20th I will take one of these weekend days please and thank you.  Linking up with Biana and Meghan.
Friday after talking with my financial planner for an hour I was so ready to meet Mark at our favorite neighborhood dinner spot.  Settling into my new surroundings.

Saturday morning was started off with a fabulous butt kicking at barre

Then Saturday night Mark made dinner.  I told him it needs to be healthy since it’s less than a month countdown and I can’t seem to quit eating cupcakes.  I was impressed.

I got sucked into all day playing with this little bad boy and with makeup.  Just like that the entire day was gone.

Sunday there was a small bridal event at my venue so my mother, Aunt and I (even dragged Mark) to go iron out all the little details.  I get butterflies just looking at these pictures.

Powel crosley, wedding

Gorgeous table setups

I can’t wait to walk down these stairs in 24 days!!!

All the little details are being crossed off mainly because my mother and Aunt are amazing.  Check back tomorrow for some of my favorite Valentine’s looks and presents ;-)  Also if  you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my sneak peak about Sephora makeup vs Drugstore brands.  It was an eye opening experience can’t wait to share that with you on Thursday!  I’ll also have a Wedding Wednesday update for you.  Tons of exciting things this week!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend xoxoxoxo

  46. January 27, 2015 / 6:16 PM

    That venue is so awesome! I can’t wait to see all the details from your wedding! Do you like your Eye-fi? I’ve been wanting one for a while but nervous it won’t work that great.
