Happy Monday, friends!! I hope everyone had a nice weekend- I spent mine in Charlotte with my main squeeze and as always, I didn’t want to leave. I have a lot going on in the next few weeks and won’t be back in Charlotte until August 10th… but at least I’ll be on my week-long break!! I’m linking with Biana & Meghan so let’s jump right into the recap!
First and foremost, we booked our honeymoon!!! I know, we’re super early but we knew where we wanted to go and there was a good deal with miles so we went for it. Ryan & I will be traveling to Saint Lucia next May and I cannot wait!! It’s a pretty popular honeymoon destination and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about the island. We are still researching resorts but have some ideas of where we want to stay. Any recommendations about things to do (or to avoid) are welcome, I’d love to hear from y’all!
Friday was a good day. I met my MOH Logan at my bridal salon to pick up my… wedding dress!! It felt so good to try it on and I fell in love with it all over again. Now the hard part is going to be keeping it tucked away in storage for 9 months. I also had this fear that it wouldn’t zip but luckily it did… it’s just a little snug in the stomach area (eeek!). But I guess I have plenty of time to work on my abs. Now I just need to start shopping for my veil, shoes, and jewelry!
This weekend was the start of Charlotte Restaurant Week, so Ryan and I went to one of our favorite places, Fleming’s. You can never go wrong with a nice juicy steak paired with some red wine. Oh, and their white chocolate bread pudding was ahhh-mazing.
On Saturday, Ryan and I were supposed to go cake tasting but we had to reschedule. While Ryan was out golfing, he got stung by a bee/yellow jacket. Within 10 minutes he was itching all over his body and started developing hives. I told him to get Benadryl ASAP and when he got home, I took one look at him and said we were going straight to urgent care. He was itching all over his body and had horrible welts everywhere! He got his steroid shot and then spent most of the day sleeping (poor thing!) and I watched a marathon of Lifetime movies about men meeting crazy women online.
Sunday was a lazy day, we didn’t get out of bed until 10! We spent the afternoon lounging at the pool and I got in some light reading (love Carolina Bride!). We spontaneously decided to go see Jurassic World in the afternoon and oh.my.gosh– it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. If you haven’t already seen it- go now!! It was amazing!
Last but not least, of course I headed to Nordstrom this weekend to take advantage of the sale. I was lucky and snagged the very last one of this sweater!! I also came to terms with the fact that big sales like this can be overwhelming. I was also on a bit of a time crunch so I ordered the rest of my goodies online- I cannot wait to get these pumps… they are so stinking cute AND comfortable! Don’t forget, the sale is open to the public now and you can’t beat some of these deals. Last week I shared some of my picks under $100 and here are some more items on my wish list… round 2! Ps. You can click on any item below to shop!
I hope y’all have a great Monday! This morning I’ll be traveling to Durham for work since I don’t have to be in until 12. So thankful for an extra night in Charlotte!!
