Wicked Wedding Weekend Extravaganza

OH EM GEE. Last weekend was so rad. Mr. B and I really do have the very best friends on the planet. 

My future brother and sister-in-law flew out from California to help celebrate our upcoming wedding [yep, the one that's in EXACTLY four months.] The men folk shipped out to the "wilds" of North Carolina for a weekend of rafting and Gentleman Jack. I use the term "wilds" loosely, seeing as their cabin had wireless internet, flat panel tvs and a hot tub.

Alternatively, the ladies hit the town of ATL and showered me with love and delicious eats:)

Here is my awesome future sister-in-law, who will be birthing our nephew right around the time of the wedding. Sadly, this means she won't be able to attend the festivities, so we were thrilled to have her around this weekend!! What a great sport at five months pregnant!

Headed to the Sun Dial's revolving roof top bar on Friday night. And yes, my sister naturally looks that way.

Saturday was off to a great start after a SURPRISE massage at the awesome Key Lime Pie spa down the street. Literally, my sister dropped me off at the door and pushed me in, I had no idea what was going on. Devine. Little did I realize they kicked me out of my own home to set up the most incredible, beautiful lingerie shower.

My bridesmaids were the Hostesses with the Mostesses. Literally, that's where they got the inspiration! The brilliant circles and the lemon+baby's breath bowl will likely be stolen/reused at the wedding. I mean, how freakin awesome??

The best surprise was from Mr. B. Though not present, he contributed nine pictures and nine reasons for loving me. Typical, he was touching, hilarious and adorable.

Laurie was apparently trying to out do the shower we hosted for her wedding last year. She made me a "bride to be" sash from scratch! On the right, the amazing chef of the weekend & real sis hangs with beautiful sis-in-law.

Whoa! Fellow bride Caitee from NC wasn't supposed to be there! I was complete shocked!

LOVE these ladies.

The panties are unwrapped! Let's just say Mr. B was very excited about this shower concept. Does this mean I have to get rid of my beloved granny panties?

And much, much later on, Sissy and I throughly enjoyed El Bar, a local institution.

All-in-all, the best freakin weekend ever. As evidenced by Mr. B's bruised outside and in [mainly in the liver region]. 


  1. It was SUCH a good time!
    ps. I think the lemons with baby's breath combo my be my greatest decor triumph yet! Haha.

  2. I love this soooooo much! I miss you terribly!

  3. Cute bachelorette night outfit! Looks like you had a ton of fun

  4. Sam, we your presence was certainly missed!!

  5. I love the lemon stuff! In a jar! In a bowl! All fantastic! I'm featuring the idea and linking your post on my Friday dance. Yay!
