Traveling and Weekend Recap

Monday, November 23, 2009

On Saturday the fiancé and I headed back to Orlando for Thanksgiving. Usually I am a very organized with packing (spreadsheets involved), but with me being super sick last week and then the fiancé getting sick packing for this trip was a little insane! We did all our packing on Saturday morning. About 2 hours before we needed to leave the house I realized my shower was the next day and I didn’t have any shoes I wanted to wear with my dress. I meant to buy some while the fiancé and I were shopping at Short Pump on Friday, but then I got a call from the Lilly store that the tailor had brought my dress back. So of course we had to make it back in time to pick it up!

I decided very last minute (and still not completely packed) to make a quick trip to our mall. I didn’t have luck finding anything to go with my dress, but I did find two super cute pairs of shoes on sale! (Which turned out to be fine since I am apparently an idiot and had a pair of navy and green shoes that I forgot about that matched perfectly!) I’ve somewhat recently discovered MaxStudio and I adore their shoes. The leather they use is just so pretty!

I also found a fabulous pair of booties (or maybe shooties?) at Nine West.

Even with my last minute shopping adventures we made it to the airport in plenty of time and are now in sunny Florida. I already miss the Poe Cat, but he is happy at home in Virginia with his cat sitter!

(I don't know why his eyes look so crazy in pictures! They are really a pretty shade of green.)

My mom’s best friend hosted my bridal shower at her house yesterday and I had such a great time! Since all my family and friends live in Florida I haven’t seen anyone in so long. We started the afternoon off with mimosas (could there be a better beginning?) and it was so great getting to catch up. Everyone was so sweet and I received tons of wonderful gifts. One of my faves was the Tiffany champagne flutes. Although everyone really brought such thoughtful gifts. The theme seemed to be items for the kitchen and I could not be more excited! I love to cook and I can’t wait to try everything out! (And I'm sure the fiance is pretty excited for me to get cooking as well.) I will be very busy writing thank you notes for the next few days!
