This and That

In less than 12 hours my little gal and I will be off on a road trip for a long weekend of wedding festivities.
She is a flower girl, and starting tomorrow afternoon the two of us will be whisked from event to event, winding down to Sunday evening when the wedding actually takes place.

I spent today ironing and taking care of all the last minute details that must be tended to before one embarks on a mini getaway.
The last thing on the agenda is to pack my own suitcase.
That has proven to be the hardest of all.

I am having one of those awful weeks where nothing fits right, feels comfortable, and everytime I look in the mirror I shudder.

We all have those don't we?

While I know this weekend will be nothing short of amazing, I just wish I felt better.
Because feeling your best makes all the difference.

Here are some snippets of the final outfits to make the cut.
Take a look at that little black one shouldered dress. 
The fact that I have to squeeze into by Sunday night is a little daunting...but I'll look on the bright side...I have almost 3 days before it goes on!

Have a fabulous weekend ~ 
Mine will be filled with laughter, love, excitement, and I'm sure some tears.
And hopefully not from putting that dress on!
