Thank you for all of your support the past few months blog world! Please say a prayer for my fiance and I for blue skies, good health and lifetime of happiness together! Talk to you when we get back from our honeymoon!

I also would LOVE some advice on furniture for an apartment as well. I sold most of my furniture to the girl who bought my house and my fiance's furniture is from his college days so I would prefer it not make the trip. Since we are just in a one bedroom apartment we really want our things to be nice and new. Any tips on where to get a fabulous couch? Should we get it in NYC or order it and have it delivered? I am so not the decorator and I've been told I need to make some decisions now about all this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here are pictures of my wedding hair. I have naturally really curly hair and I wear it half up everyday so it seemed the natural way to wear it! As it is going to be nice and warm next weekend we decided to straighten my hair and then curl it back to help prevent the humidity afro effect. I will be adding some fresh flowers to the top of the veil. My veil is very simple and is cathedral length. I love it! Just 10 more days!!!

There were tears and there were some heated discussions about the apartment crisis, but we survived that too and we put an application on another apartment last night. I said a lot of prayers and I truly think they were answered. On Sunday morning, our original first choice apartment called my fiance and told them a one bedroom had just come available and we were the first name on the waiting list. We loved this apartment too and I really hope it works out. It has been an emotional couple of days, but I think things are looking up now. I'll keep you posted on our progress with this apartment. It is still on the Upper East, a little higher than we would like...but still near a park and the best part about this one is that it has a washer and dryer (pretty big deal in NYC.)

Ok, enough of that. I know a lot of you have held "open question" days and I think it is time for me to answer the questions you have been dying to ask. The only rules are that I won't tell you my name (privacy and security), I won't tell you my new address (privacy and security), and I can't show you any pictures of me or my fiance (his request for privacy and security). Anything else is fair game and I can't wait to hear what you want to know! So...start asking...

Tomorrow morning we are flying to Memphis for a party that my fiance's family is throwing for us. On Sunday, my fiance and I are taking an early morning flight to NYC to find our apartment! We have 5 appointments on Monday, 4 on Tuesday and then an appointment with a broker friend on Wednesday. I'm really excited and nervous about going up there. I guess I will be out of pocket for a few days so have a wonderful weekend and keep your fingers crossed that I find the most amazing apartment in all of Manhattan! I'll be sure to take lots of pictures and tell you all about our experience when I return.
Ok, enough talking...I've got to get working! Have a great one!

I was born in the heart of the preppy South. I wore a plaid jumper to grade school with saddle oxfords, a navy blue sweater with a crest and a grosgrain ribbon tied in my curls. I graduated to a very short plaid skirt in high school, complete with dirty bucs tied in the special knots. In college, I wore soffe shorts monogrammed with my sorority letters and the latest fraternity formal shirt complete with reefs to class. When the sun went down, I donned black pants and some variation of a preppy shirt at night and I never forgot my Kate Spade purse. I wore Laundry dresses to formals and Lilly dresses and my great aunt's pearls to rush parties. I sleep on monogrammed sheets and dry off each morning with my monogrammed towels. I love ribbon, shoes with bows, Jimmy Buffett, Costa sunglasses and madras. I own four embossed beach dresses from J. Crew and I just got the latest seersucker bathing suit in the mail from them yesterday. I have a dog name Daisy AND she wears a Vera Bradley collar. I have the entire Vera Bradley luggage collection monogrammed in pink. I'm currently planning a pink and green wedding (my favorite colors) complete with hydrangeas and roses and my new monogram. I will be a preppy girl until the day I die (I just hope they bury me in a preppy outfit and my pearls.)
Item Number 1
Description: Polka dot bikini in navy and white.
Fit: Top fit great, the bottoms...not so great. Even with Weight Watchers I still am not a candidate for the wide band. It just doesn't work for me.
Status: Sending back
Status: Already in the bag for the honeymoon
Item Number 3
Description: Navy and white striped shirt
Fit: Ready for the boat
Status: Hanging next to my Lacoste shirts looking good!
Description: Pale Pink Embossed Beach Dress
Fit: Should have gotten a 4 (I was wearing an 8 this time last year and I thought the 6 would be just fine.)
Status: In the box waiting for a shipping label, but I will get another one. I already have the hot pink, kelly green and white and they were my uniform last summer. I need a new, smaller collection!
Description: Black and White Shirt Dress
Fit: I could keep Paris company in jail.
Status: Keeping my record clean and sending back the jail stripes.
