five on friday: wedding edition

Tomorrow is my dear friend, Rebecca's, wedding, so that's the theme I'm going with!

{1} Bachelorette party: Rebecca's bachelorette party was last night. It was a lingerie shower potluck and it was so fun! I hesitated going at first because I was worried about whether my body would be able to handle it but I'm so glad I went! I brought spinach artichoke dip and it was SO GOOD.

30.5 weeks!
{2} Rehearsal: the rehearsal is at 4:30 today and I usually don't get home from work until 4. The church is 20 minutes from my house so I had to come into work all dressed up!

{3} Rehearsal dinner: Jon's parents are watching the kids so we can make a date out of it! It is at a local Italian restaurant that I have only ever heard good things about but we've never tried so to say I'm excited is probably an understatement.

{4} Bridesmaids dress: Rebecca told us what color and a general style she liked for bridesmaids dresses and let us pick our own. She wants us in shorter dresses but when I tried them all on with the David's Bridal baby bump I was very concerned about the length in the front (DB doesn't make actual maternity dresses). After talking to Rebecca we decided it would be wise for me to get a floor length dress and then hem it. I am SO GLAD we went this route! A family friend tailored it for us and it is gorgeous. From the front you can't even tell I'm pregnant!!
...but when I turn to the side it's like BAM. Homegirl is hella knocked up.

{5} The hair: A local hairdresser is giving me a really awesome discount on my hair because I told her I just couldn't afford the regular rate, so I'm really excited about that. I sent her this picture for inspiration and I hope my hair cooperates.


In other news, my next post is my thousandth on this blog. I can't believe it. I want to do something fun to celebrate (perhaps a giveaway) but I've been pretty lousy on the follow through so time will tell whether that happens...
