Five Things // March 9th

1. Visited and finished asking my bridesmaids if they would be in the wedding

Go to meet up with one of my oldest friends and have a lovely dinner with her and her husband. I also was able to finally pop the question if she would like (LOVE) to be in my wedding party. She said yes! I made some special bridesmaid boxes for all my girls and will be showing them in whole soon! Excited that all my girlfriends said yes!

2. Dia & Co Plus Size Subscription Box

I found and quickly signed up for a Dia & Co subscription box as soon as I landed my eyes on it! I’ve been very jealous of similar boxes but could never find one for plus size woman. My first box came quickly and absolutely love being able to try clothes on from the comfortable of my home and things my assistant picked for me! I didn’t take pictures this time but I did keep a adorable pair of skinny dark jeans that fit like a glove. I can’t wait to see my next box! If you are wanting to know more about the program, it’s $20 a month and you get to spend that $20 on anything you keep in your box and get a discount if you buy the box in total. They have budget friendly clothing too! If you want to join here is a special link that gives us both gifts. :]

3. First Time Shopping for my Wedding Dress

I finally got to go dress shopping and it was the best experience. That entire day I couldn’t sit still, I was just so excited. I tried about 5 dresses on and the last one is TOTALLY THE ONE! I didn’t think it would be that easy to find THE dress, but I did! I totally got that feeling and just couldn’t take it off. There will be some alternations needing to be made on the sleeves, but other than that, it’s perfect. I’m going to go back soon and place my order to get the ball rolling!

4. Putting together some succulent arrangements for the house

I purchased some succulent cuttings from Amazon (for the first time) and spend some time putting together some arrangements for the house. I can’t wait to get outside and get my garden together now that the sun is starting to come out a little more!

5. Relaxing is the best medicine

Been trying really hard to find the time to relax and let go of everything that happens in my busy day. Cuba is for sure someone I’m thankfully for (I’m not forgetting about J though!) for letting me let go and focus on something else. I snapped this picture while she was laying on me (she loves to cuddle) while watching TV.
