Rehearsal Dinner Dress Unsuccess

What a whirlwind!

Today was spent shopping and crafting… and then we did some more crafting. ;)

For our first adventure of the day, Ryan and I headed to Nordstrom Rack to return two pairs of back up wedding shoes that my mom bought for me just in case I couldn’t find the Badgley Mischka pink heels I had my eye on.

After that, we headed to the Prime Outlets to scope out the Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet, Banana Republic and BCBG in hopes of finding me a dress for our rehearsal dinner.

Sadly, I had no luck.

I’m thinking I may just wear the dress I wore for my sister’s mother/daughter/sister brunch or the one I recently wore on a hot date with Ryan.

Shopping made both of us hungry and we made it a point to stop into le gourmet chef for some free samples.

We then headed home, making a pit stop at the grocery store to pick up tortilla chips and the goods we needed to make Ryan’s super simple avocado salsa dip.

I’m not gonna lie, that ended up being our dinner. We ate a TON of chips and dip and the avocados in the dip made me really full.

Still, we had room for dessert about an hour later.

I made a small loaf of pumpkin bread that we enjoyed with ice cream Snickers bars.

Enjoying dessert on the couch was a welcome break from all the wedding crafting that was going on in our apartment.

While Ryan placed a ton of stickers on bags that will be used in our wedding favors, I conquered our escort boards that will tell our guests where to sit.

Envelopes with the guests’ names on them will be filled with the name of the table where they will be sitting, and fastened to the boards with cute push-pins.

Now I’m off to change into my pajamas. We’re staying in for the night and I couldn’t be happier about that! :D
