Q&A and Weekend Wonderfuls

Friday, July 8, 2011

From the honeymoon recap as well as the pictures of new bedding and such, I had a few questions I wanted to answer/clarify:

1. What exactly is the lingerie game? You’re going to love this. While on my bachelorette party, we did the traditional lingerie shower—when I opened each gift, we nicknamed everything…for instance “Whip It Real Good” had a nightie and flavored whipped cream in it. Another one was “Red Hot” and it was a red romper…get the idea? So then you pack bags with tissue and the tags into your suitcase and each night your hubby gets to pick which one you wear! My MOH did it all for me and it was totally fun!
2. Where did we get our koozies printed from? I’ll recap all the vendors and such later, but we used Discount Favors online—they were super fast, inexpensive, and they changed the artwork just the way I wanted it to resemble a Jack Daniel’s bottle…these were a big hit at the reception!
3. Where did you get all of your outfits/bathing suits/dresses? First of all, I shop a lot in Nashville at local boutiques and such...Blush, Muse, and Shop Around the Corner are just a few of my favorites. With other online retailers, I find a lot of my tops and dresses at Francesca's Collections as well as Forever 21, Loft, ModCloth, and Lulus. As for the bikinis, most of mine come from Victoria's Secret--I know the way their sizing runs, which makes it pretty simple when ordering.
4. What color are your bedroom walls painted? When we moved in to our house, they were a horrid baby blue--with the thought of our master boudoir being a serene and calming room, we decided to go with a light gray...this exact shade is from Behr called Porpoise and it's available from Home Depot.  

It's Friday...not going to lie, thank you to the heavens for this only being a 4 day work week.
This time around, we're headed to Jeff's sister and brother-in-law's new farm in East Tennessee to celebrate her birthday and to show us their new house. There will be plenty of time spent relaxing, taking in the clean air, fishing {ehhh...not so much me}, and time with the family.
Then, we'll be heading back bright and early Sunday to tackle errands and things at the house--next week is going to be a busy one...happy hour/dinner with friends on Monday AND Wednesday night, and then birthday celebrations all weekend--I think I can handle that ;)
Leaving you with some fun quote inspiration--happy weekend friends!

  5. I thought the koozies were darling. :) We did koozies too because our rehearsal dinner was BYOB so we brought in all of the alcohol and gave out koozies. I've loved seeing all of your pictures!
