Mondays rock...

...said no one ever.

However, this one is going to be fun. I'm starting my morning out at the office before 7:30 A.M... I know, I'm just overloaded with work and hate staying crazy late. BUT -- Caleb and I are starting Insanity back up after a week long break due to his knee injury. My man is ALL better... that is in fact, AFTER I have a healthy dinner with the ladies from work to celebrate a recent hire, a birthday, AND a "going away" dinner for my MIL-to-be.

What? I never told you I worked with my fiance's mom? Oops. Well, I do. Its actually because of her I have my job that was supposed to just be "temp" that turned into a full-time career. Yay!

So why the going away dinner, you ask? Well, Caleb's father recently accepted a position in Arkansas with a new company, and has already moved down there to start his new journey. We are so excited for him, but will miss him greatly. While he is down there, his wife (Caleb's momma) is staying up here prepping the house to sell, and her last day of work is quickly approaching. Hence, the going away dinner.

I hope all of your weekends were as fun as mine! Friday night I met up with most of the women in Caleb's family, and a couple from mine for a fun time at our favorite local Mexican restaurant for some fun! After, we met up at one of their houses and told way too many embarrassing stories and shared a million and a half laughs.

Saturday. was. a. freaking. blast! I took two of my bridesmaids out (Erin & Marie) and they BOTH said "YES" to their bridesmaid dresses! YAY!!! They will both look stunning in their dresses, and they can TOTALLY wear them again.

Not sure if I've told you all or not... but our wedding is going to be very laid back and fun (if I do say so myself!), meaning that the wardrobe will also be just that. I wanted my girls to be comfortable in their dresses, no satin allowed, hehe. So, we went with the non-traditional route. One of my girls found her dress at Forever 21 (I know right?!), another was at a local store in Dayton, and these two found their adorable flow-y chiffon dresses at David's Bridal. I absolutely cannot wait to see it all pulled together on my big day.

The men will be in grey and light pink vests, my girls in various shades of nude, blush pink, and champagne. I really can't wait to see the end result!

Moving on to Sunday... after church, it was full of absolutely nothing. JUST HOW I LIKE IT! 

Hoping that you ladies have a great week. Wish Caleb and I luck working out (we're gonna need it!) and pray hard that his silly floating knee caps don't pop out again anytime soon!
