Damn it feels good....

To be off work and have another 4 whole days before I have to trudge back again!

Since Tuesday morning Boo and I have gotten SO MUCH ACCOMPLISHED!!!

First of all we had our wedding cake tasting: That was AMAZING!!! I mean nothing could have prepared me for the deliciousness that is endless combinations of wedding cakes/fillings at 10 in the am. It truly was the breakfast of champions! The verdict?

(Our Chosen Cake Design)

This is the design we have chosen for our cake. The stems and leaves are fondant but the rose buds will be fresh flowers. Ben and I saw this cake and both LOVED it! And the flavors?
For the bottom layer we chose chocolate cake with strawberry jam and bevarian cream filling. The middle layer will be white cake with chocolate mousse and the top will be marble cake with fudge (the baker said fudge will keep better for a year in the fridge....besides who am I to argue with fudge?).

After our cake tasting we visited my salon for a blow-out/style for me and a haircut/beard trim for Ben and it was off to our engagement photo shoot. The session was about an hour long and it threatened to rain the entire time but it held off and the sun was peaking out just enough to get all the shots we needed. I thought ahead though and brought a big red umbrella just in case. We didn't actually need it but the photographer liked the idea of the umbrella and we used it in a few shots anyway, I'm excited to see how they turned out! I got to see just one and it looked soooo cute so I am anxiously awaiting the disk to fall into my hands!

After the craziness of the day Boo and I came home and pajamified then I got to work rearranging furniture in our upstairs. I wrote a post about a week ago about how I wanted to change our house around and why but I wanted pictures before I actually posted it. I took some pictures yesterday/today so stay tuned for that post to come soon! So we rearranged, ate pizza, watched TV and went to bed around midnight thirty.

This morning was the meeting with the florist ( soooo excited about our nervous that when we get the proposal we are going to be WAY over budget) and then it was back home for more reorganizing.

Now I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Miss Rachel Ann one of my bestest besties and her fiance to arrive from Louisiana (by way of a stop in Columbus first)!

So with that said: I hope everyone is having a great work week - can't say I'm missing work this week myself- but hang in there everyone Saturday will be here soon!

Much Love!

Miss Amber Lane
