My favorite weekend recap.

October 30, 2014

Attention: This is a mushy Kristen-wedding post, if you're not interested, feel free to skip, there will be plenty of paleo posts coming! This past weekend was one for the memory books. I spent 5 blissful days in Arizona and am sitting at my desk dreaming of the past week. The first day I flew in my mom and I spent the entire day wedding planning. From picking linens to picking cake, we had the best day, taking pictures, laughing and drinking champagne. I just love getting to do this super girly type stuff with her and can't wait for the actual day.  The rest of the week was a blur of friends, family, my nephew/love/bestfriend Tomas, wine and so many pictures. 
how insanely handsome is Adam, sheesh, I'm lucky. 
I'm so excited to marry this dreamboat. 

Adam flew in Friday night and Saturday we took engagement pictures. I've been kind of nervous for engagements because they're used for so much wedding stuff! But, Stephanie Fay (click for link!) knocked them out of the park! Go look at her blog now, you wont regret it. Stephanie and I have known each other for years. We were lucky enough to go to school together for 12+ years, play basketball together and go to more Suns games than I can count. She's such an amazing human, let alone photographer. I'm so happy with the way our pictures turned out, thanks to her!

Sunday afternoon, my two gorgeous MOH's and my mom's best friend hosted for me the most beautiful shower I could have ever dreamed of. It was complete with custom napkins, lots of mimosas and amazing, handmade quiches, frittatas and cakes. I had the best day catching up with old friends, taking 100000 pictures and opening lots of fun and thoughtful gifts. I had friends from every stage of my life at this shower and those who couldn't make it sent gifts, their love and sweet notes. This shower made me so excited for the wedding day.  I can't imagine the feelings I will have when I walk into our reception surrounded by all of our friends and family. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful woman in my life. I'm so thankful to Coti and Whit for the shower and to everyone who came out to help Adam and I celebrate.

Thanks for letting me rave about all things wedding. I promise I'll keep these types of posts to a minimum. It was just too good of a weekend not to share. Only 191 days until I'm a wife, and then I promise, the wedding posts will be less! 

Happy Thursday blogworld, make it a good one!
