So I have a thing...

Where my OCD kicks in and I have to clear out all of my unread blog posts in Bloglovin' before I can continue on and write my own post.

It can also be very daunting when I sign in and see 799 unread posts. Eek!

Needless to say, when I saw that this morning, I got to work.

I didn't read anywhere close to all of them, but if you ever notice comments on posts dating back a week or two, you'll know why.

I was so glad to get everything cleared out so that I could finally write my own post, so here we go...

The last couple weeks have been on the crazy side, that's what happens when you have about five months to plan a wedding. I'm really happy with how everything is coming along though and I've gotten quite a few things crossed off my list.

To catch y'all up on what's been going on around here....

My birthday was a couple weeks ago, on the 17th, and it was a great weekend. I hung out with Lindsey on Saturday at the Navy wives vendor fair on base then Shaun treated me to a manicure and pedicure :) On my way to the salon, I picked up a couple bridal magazines to browse while I got pampered.

That night, we met Lindsey, TJ, and Liam out for sushi at Sushi 101. It was delish, then we headed out to their house to hang out for a bit.

On Sunday, my actual birthday, Shaun and I went to brunch at Red Drum then headed downtown to walk around. We didn't really buy anything, but it was warm out and nice to spend time outside. 

From downtown, we headed out to John's Island for dinner at Wild Olive with friends. It wasn't the craziest birthday by any means, but it was a great weekend.

No re-cap is complete without a couple pictures of these two...



Last week, we went for a tasting at Cru Catering and it was a-maz-ing.

Here is a little sneak peak!
They surprised us at the end with dessert, Bourbon-infused Cherry Bread pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream. All I have to say....omg.


This past weekend on Friday, I went with Shaun and another one of his co-workers and their students to hibachi. We then got Rita's for dessert, YUM!

On Saturday, Shaun went to play paintball with his students in the morning and early afternoon. While he was out doing man things, I did what I do best...shopping! We had planned a photo shoot with Marie on Sunday and I had to make sure we were looking our best.

Saturday night, we grabbed some apps at Sesame then headed across the way to the IMAX theater to see Catching Fire. It was really good, I was happy about that :)

Lastly, on Sunday, I headed out to Tease Dry Bar to get my hair and makeup done and shortly after Shaun and I met up with Marie for pictures. What was supposed to be an 'engagement shoot' quickly turned into a mini holiday shoot due to the freezing cold weather and wind. Guess we'll have to try again another time!

Soooo, that's about it. Thank you if you actually read through this whole post and made it this far :p

I have lots more wedding stuff to post about and promise to get to that soon!

Hope you all have a great week!

So much going on! I've gotten way behind on blogs too. I have to admit that I've just marked all as read several time.. :/ I'm slowly catching up now!

Sometimes I get overwhelmed and just wipe anything over a week old. Then I feel super guilty. I tried getting rid of blogs I don't particularly enjoy, but I realized that I couldn't part with more than a few. Happy Belated Birthday! Sounds like a great time.

Stephanie said...

Now I don't feel so bad about all my unread ones. I often am at least a week behind on reading blogs. Whoops.

Janna Renee said...

I wish I had that problem! Lately, I've had a hard time keeping up with blog reading! I think I'm getting back into it, though. Happy Belated Birthday!
