Well after meeting the consultant to go over the wedding cake I asked about a groom's cake and what I told her I really wanted was a soccer ball cake! Because Fiance is a HUGE soccer player, actually played for Scotland at one time, so I knew that's what I wanted for the cake. The consultant proceeded to tell me that it would be around $200 to do a soccer cake because of the roundness of the cake! And Sarah proceeded to choke on the wedding cake she had put in her mouth, just kidding but I was thinking that's outrageous!
So I decided to brainstorm and come up with some other way of making a groom's cake that didn't break the bank! And my sister-in-law popped into my head, she makes all the kids birthday cakes and she super talented, so I thought it would be funny and a good idea to ask her if she would take my niece Lily's barbie cake mold and create the top half of a soccer ball.......and instead of a barbie coming out of the top have either a Ken barbie or a super hero i.e. spiderman, superman, whatever. So that is the game plan and it will be a surprise for Fiance! I think he's going to get a kick out of it!
Which leads me to my next topic.......product review!!!! With all of the wedding planning and job interviewing and everything else, I've been under some serious stress and I thought it would be a good time to try out this.........Kiehl's Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant

Now here are some long overdo pictures!!!
Here are the letters that I got to hang on the Church doors, I'll be hanging them with the tartan ribbon I got!
These are the frames that I got to include as part of my Bridesmaids gifts, I'll be putting poems in them for my girls!
I got a couple of these frames from Michael's to use around the reception!!
Gras with all those beads around my neck!!!!!! hehe!
I had such a great time, my maid and matron outdid themselves!!! The theme of the party was pink and green so we had green punch with strawberrys and pink and green ribbon tied to them. And they had sent everyone pink and green recipe cards for them to write their favorite recipe on and gave them to me in a cute clear recipe box!! I thought it was such a cute idea!
And then the bachelorette was a ton of fun too! Like I said I had myself a really good time and no there were no strippers or strip clubs to be had, sweet southern bell's don't partake in such things ; )
On Sunday, even though I was hurting from the previous nights festivities, my sweet mom and I got all of the invitations stuffed and stamped and out in the mail on Monday morning!!! With the exception of the international invites and a small handful of other invites that I'm still waiting for Fiance to get me the stinkin addresses on.....the rest of them are gone!!!!! What a load off my mind!!! I promise you I will post pictures just as soon as I get them!!!

As soon as I read Miss Houndstooth and Nail's post about this I went and got the book and IT. IS. AMAZING!!!!! I don't think I've ever read a book as fast as I read this one, I literally finished it in two days (the book is almost 500 pages) and am now onto the second book! You have to read Miss Houndstooth and Nail's post about it becuase she does a great job of decribing it!
All I can say is the author, Stephanie Meyer, has an unbelievable gift of pulling you into the story in a way that makes it hard to stop reading because you want to know what's going to happen next! I don't want to spoil anything but the way she put's into words the attraction between the two main characters is unlike anything I've read before.......it's just WOW!!! And if reading it wasn't good enough they've made a movie out of it that's coming to theatres December 12th.....I cannot wait!!!!
If you're looking for a good book to read this is it!!!!

She recently bought a gorgeous red Kate Spade purse so I thought this would be great for her to carry with it, it's supposed to be used for photos but I thought she could even put a pad in there and use it as a little agenda book too!
For my cousin I got her this cute Cheese tray/cutting board from South Moon Under
