Yay! Another 'check' on the wedding to do list. Up next -- finishing up building our Wedding Websending out Save the Dates, and FINALLY asking my bridesmaids (only asked one so far, but the rest pretty much know anyways...). I'd like to have these done by next weekend... um... we'll see how that goes.
My fiance and I are going home to Birmingham for Easter weekend, and in addition to fun times with the fam, Easter Baskets, and the baptism of my niece...we will also be knocking out an appointment with the a possible invitation vendor and a meeting with our florist and her 'lighting guy'.
Bring on the wedding stress and let the games begin. :)
In other news...
Sunday a bunch of us went to Blessing of the Fleet in Mt. Pleasant - an event held in Memorial Waterfront Park, right below the Ravenel Bridge. It's a festival held every year to kick off Shrimp Fishing Season and all of the Shrimp Boats parade by and a 'blessing of the fleet' is done over the load speaker. Locals come out and bring blankets and tailgate chairs and sit out in the sun and enjoy life music (East Coast Party Band played this year) and can sample seafood from local restaurants.
The best part about this festival is that it's FREE! Well... really the best part about this festival is you can BYOB and food. So my fiance and I went Sunday, drank some cold beers, hung out with friends, got some sun and listened to great beach music...without spending a dime! Ok..well, I spent $2 because I bought a Blessing of the Fleet koozie.
I totally nauticaled (new word) it up on Sunday and wore my new Forever21 hat and my sailboat Sperrys. One of my friends called me Nautical Nancy... it may have been overkill, but I wanted to dress the part since we were blessing the fleet... besides, I can't pass on dressing up for a theme party. :)

My sailboat Sperrys!
We were all barefoot pretty much the entire time though - the cold grass felt great on our feet. So we coined the day Blessing of the "Feet" instead.
Afterward, all of the boys went to eat Mexican, and all of the girls went to dinner at Poe's Tavern on Sullivan's Island. I have been there many times, but I've never actually eaten there...I had my first Poe's burger (Pimento Cheese!) and it was delish!
Monday night was Hip Hop class.... loved this week's dance. You can't see me in this video... I'm off to the side, which is why I'm ok with posting it. :)
Tuesday was Bottles & Brushes - here's my latest painting...
Hope everyone is having a good week... I'm off to take Willow to puppy training classes at the local Petco. I think we're learning 'Roll Over' today.
