Where does wedding inspiration come from?
The show is about a fictitious 1960s Madison Avenue ad adgency. The ad-men are always in sharp suits and the secretaries are in their cahmere sweaters and pencil skirts. It's all retro-styled and more than a few designers have been inspired by the show.
So I've been confused about a purse for my wedding and have been looking and looking. I seen a couple at David's Bridal- but was unsure if I was going to dye my purse the same color as my shoes- which will be green. Then I seen one of them on Mad Men- check it out- it's even a cool green!
I ended up purchasing the skirt with a gift card and I'm thinking I will wear it to my shower!
Speaking of my shower- yesterday I seen my invites which I will post tomorrow. Wait till you see them!

PomPoms for over the head table!
And they don't look like lettuce (see previous post for lettuce)
My future sister-in-law Becky came over and helped me with these- and Thank God! She was awesome! So precise
My mother found and ordered the huge tissue paper and was great at fluffing our poms.
My sister-in-law Nicole worked on the intials! The intials are looking great:
Is there a Doctor in the house????
Look at my great craft- impressive - huh?
Well I just wanted a bow on my cake knife to match our wedding cake...it wasn't as easy as it looks....lol
These cake knifes were super inexpensive but look good!
I also put my stickers on the lip balm I purchased to have in the ladies room at the wedding - just incase there's a girl in need of some gloss.
I love these!
Here's a few pics of some purchases:
We found these votive holders at a dollar store- we purchased enough to line our huge headtable. Found some brown and green ribbon in the sales bin- so can't have enough brown around!
Last but not least- the card I bought for Rob on our wedding day- still working on a gift.
Weight info- Lost 2lbs and feeling pretty good about myself- I guess. Have to stay positive.

No I'm not the hot blonde- I'm the brunette sticking her gut out! I don't know what my problem is, but all I want to do is eat. This picture was taken a weekend ago when we were visiting Rob's parents. The blonde is Rob's sister. The good thing is that on this weekend visit I actually went jogging with Becky! Well- I went and I stopped a lot! But Becky kept me going she would let me stop for a bit and then ask to jog again. Becky was so nice about it. We then did my 8 minute abs dvd- it was great to work-out with someone.
Right now I work out alone when Rob and Lucas are sleeping usually. It's boring and lonely but I do feel the need to workout- well I'm scared about my dress!
I have dvds I alternate - but 8 minute abs is an every night must!
I must say I'm so thankful for Rob and Lucas! They help me out a lot with giving me time to workout and or joining me for a walk/jog. I love these guys!
Here they are waiting for the school bus on Lucas' 1st day of 6th grade.

Saturday 2 good friends along with my mother got together with me and we made my pew bows. These were very simple elegant enough for my ceremony.
They are simple looking- I like them.
My sister in-law Nicole started on our initials that originally seen on An Excited Bride Blog. They are going to be great! She did a great job so far.
Our next craft is the tissue paper pom poms. As seen on Martha Stewart. I scouted around and did find some on-line that people did according to Martha's directions and they looked really good. If you ever have time check out: http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/
Here are her pom poms:
Don't laugh- here is our 1st attempt:
Looks more like lettuce!Am I scared, worried- oh yes
That's why I purchased is:http://www.marthastewartcrafts.com/detail.php?p=63725&v=msc_holi_halloween
So that way I see it and maybe learn all the tricks to making the pom poms. These candy corn pom poms can decorate our Halloween Rehearsal.
This is the last picture of this dress.....it's off to be taken apart and given new life.
I purchased 2 of these hearts for the backs of our bride and groom chairs. Yes- they need a little TLC.
