And so the countdown begins...

I could offer some excuses for where I've been this week (yes, I did forget to do the Sunday Best!), but it was the norm: out of town for a wedding, then two night meetings, no dinners to cook, et cetera et cetera.

But in the meantime, we marked an important milestone: One month away from the wedding, as of Thursday! Wedding planning (and stress) have kicked into high gear and we've reached the point where you just spend money with abandon, keep track of your headcount and field questions from every direction. I'm getting very excited, but there's plenty of hoops to jump through before I can let loose and really just enjoy it. So here's the week in wedding planning:

I had a very successful hair trial! Loves it!

I purchased a garter from this fine lady, even though I'm a little nervous wearing a garter with a short dress.

And I ordered two types of ribbon from Save On Crafts. One of these ribbons will end up on my bridesmaids' bouquets, but I want to see them in person before I make a decision.

Speaking of which, mini rant: have you been to your local Michael's or fabric store lately? They have awful ribbon selections. Seriously! The only place I could find lovely ribbon was the internets or M+J Trimming in New York. Whither the great craft supplies these days?

I love the stuff at M & J. The button room makes me happy.

i was so overwhelmed when I went! the lace displays and applique wall? To die for!

speaking of, if you need me to pick up anything there before the wedding, let me know.

Oh, I know ALL about the ribbon issues at craft stores and Joann's. Horrible selections. But these look nice!
