Happy Monday my loves! Back to the real world and the grind of things. Mark was gone this weekend for work (I know boooo first one together as husband and wife
) but shhhh no lie it was okay because I got so much done. When I say so much done I mean I slept with no alarm, binge watched Gilmore girls and did lots of blog research and writing. Oh and with plenty of thank you cards thrown in there. I also have the honeymoon just about completely planned out and ready to hit confirm. I can’t wait to tell you all where we are going and to share all the fabulous details! Linking up with Biana
So this weekend as mentioned above was spent in some major PJ wear. I joked when I went out for one of my bridesmaids birthday dinner on Saturday that it forced me to put some real clothes on. I have been soaking up every pretty bloom of these flowers Mark got for me after the wedding. I told him it was like being back in the courting times. This 7th Avenue Apothecary candle
is a local company here in Tampa and it literally gives every Nest/Jo Malone/Diptyque a total run for their money at half the price. It burns so evenly and the scent fills the entire house. I have the Primerose and Teakwood
currently burning and it is seriously heavenly. Plus supporting local business! So many businesses around town are burning these candles and they smell amazing.
Saturday was spent with 25 tab browsers open finalizing all the honeymoon plans while texting Mark all the details. It felt great to get out of the house for a little catching up with my bridesmaids!
We went to a new spot that used to be a really popular place called the Rack which closed down and has been revamped by our favorite Thai/sushi place The Grand Siam
(that I’m always talking about in my recaps from the weekend
). The new spot is called the Hyde Out
and it definitely is a restaurant that is more of a bar/to be seen kind of place. The food was alright if you had a few drinks in you…..which I didn’t. So I enjoyed the fries and I will continue to enjoy our neighborhood spot.
I wore this lace top that I told you about here
. Seriously I am obsessed. I insist you guys get it. It was less than $15. It is incredible soft, has the perfect amount of stretch and looks super high end. I want it in every color. My original one is sold out (of course it is
) but here is similar in black
and exact in white & blush
Check out the scalloped edges on it. Oh and for everyone who was asking what I did for my wedding band. I went with a matching platinum band because everything I tried putting up against my solitaire wasn’t looking right. I love this clean look. Also leads plenty of opportunity for right handed rings and after my wedding gift you’ll also see why I went that route ;-) Wedding mani going strong!
Sunday was spent teaching Barre and doing some major scouting for you at Target. I am excited to tell you I basically tried on every bathing suit top they have to offer because it pretty much felt like Summer here on Sunday. Who wants to come and visit me?
Check back tomorrow for my full review! Wednesday my plan is to share with you the start of our wedding week and recap the rehearsal dinner night. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I have teamed up with some fabulous gals for a baller giveaway. We are giving away a Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac! I have two different colors (this one is rose gold hardware and black
) and literally wear mine every chance I can get.
