Instagram Update…

I’m still here, I promise! This past month and the one ahead are all about prepping for the big day… every weekend from here on out is packed with to-do’s and celebrations! Exciting, but tiring and I’m afraid my poor blog has taken the brunt of the neglect =/ I wanted to keep you all in the loop with an instagram recap… thank you so much for checking back in and hang in there, I hope to be drawing again soon!!

The past three weeks in review…

From left to right, top to bottom:
1. Central park during our engagement shoot
2. Tea pot cake at my bridal shower
3. “Just Married” and “I Dodish towels from Mom
4. Gorgeous flowers from the shower
5. Vintage photos of my Grandmother, the top two are from her wedding day
6. Bachelorette girls weekend with my BFF of 23 years included Ladurée (of course!)
7. A trip to Bergdorf’s was also a must
8. The ING marathon front runners just steps from our apartment
9. Tea cups… just received my first two and have started my own collection!

These sweet treats from the bridal shower were amazing… the hostess and dear family friend, Sue outdid herself! Marie Antoinette would have been jealous!! =)

Have a great week, I hope to be back here soon!

Cake Tasting…

This past weekend was completely consumed by wedding planning… the DF and I met my mom for a full wedding weekend complete with florist meetings, cake tastings, and a second walk through of our venue!

There are so many little details that still need to be finalized, but we’re slowly working through all the big decisions. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, we’re doing a bunch of specialty cakes. After trying about eight different flavors and eating way too much of each, I felt sick to my stomach! But all of them were amazingly delicious =) The wedding is coming together before my eyes and December will be here before we know it!

Here’s to a sweet Tuesday… and lots and lots of wedding cake =)

P.S. – and a happy, happy birthday to the best DAD there is! I love you, Dad =)

Birthday Leftovers…

I’ve been trying to avoid excessive amounts of sugar for the past six months… but yesterday was my birthday and all bets were off! The DF and I both took a PTO day and started celebrating at the Doughnut Plant. Oh… my… goodness are these donuts delicious. And they have all kinds of flavors and shapes! Our favorites were the toasted almond and wild blueberry… but the pistachio was definitely a runner up!

With all the birthday goodness going on, we now have so many sweets in the house… mini cupcakes… cookies… homemade peppermint patties from Bouchon. I’m definitely on a major sugar high and in danger of falling off the wagon. So I decided to draw these fabulous donuts in hopes of getting all these sweets out of my system! Here’s hoping it starts working soon =)
