Happy Friday!

Friday AND a three day weekend? What could be better? Now, I don't really have many big plans for my weekend, which is fine with me. Next weekend we'll be in Iowa for a wedding, so it will be good to rest up and do things around the apartment that I always seem to put off.

Speaking of weddings, is it wrong that while I do not actually have a sparkley something pretty on my left hand, but I have spent the last hour and a half looking at potential wedding reception sites? I think it is good to be prepared with ideas, right? I mean, weddings are big and they come with a lot of decisions to be made. I think that the more ideas I have now, the less stressed I will be later. Am I way off base with my thinking?

I've never been one of those girls who had her entire wedding planned since the age of six, but there are a few things that I know I want (NH in October) and then for the most part, everything else I am flexible on. I know who most of my bridesmaids will be, though I am still thinking of the exact number. How many bridesmaids is too many? Not that I am going for 14 or anything, but six? Eight? Who knows! I do want to find a dress that isn't insanely expensive and maybe that they can wear again too. I know I have a few dresses in my closet that I will never wear again!

Yes, so it's Friday afternoon and I am slacking off a bit. It's okay to do sometimes. Besides, my boss is out of town (all next week too!), so I can have a few minutes of off-time, right?

Ohh, and remember to go over to Heidi's blog and read my first ever guest post sometime today!

I had the sparkly thing on my hand for 4 years - and I am glad its gone now.... I still have my wedding dress need to get rid of that lol.....
If I ever get married, I would be satisfied with Vegas. :-)

Have a great weekend

I think I remember reading somewhere that you are "supposed" to have one bridesmaid for every 50 guests. I don't follow the rules, however, and have 7 bridesmaids for 200-250 guests. Ha!

I hope it's not inappropriate to do stuff like this-- I totally have an account at The Knot, just so I can peruse! I imagine that I will be a Big Ball of Stress leading up to my someday-wedding, so I rationalize by saying to myself that I am just planning ahead like a good little Type A. :)
