Gooing to The Chapel And We’re…

July 27, 2011 · 33 comments

Goooonna get ma-a-a-ried [and by we I mean Lisa-Marie].

Yesterday, someone [Lisa-Marie’s sister] told me I’m a human jukebox.

It’s not the first time I’ve heard it. It won’t be the last. I’m always singing.

“do you got what it takes to rock da mic?

So… it makes sense that half of my post titles are songs, right? Right.

ANYWAY, back to the post title. Life is nutso. My head may spin off. I’m off to pick up Lisa-Marie’s gown from the bridal salon at lunchtime, then I’ll bang out a 6-miler post-work, and then I’ll be in the midst of more wedding prep before dinner tonight.

Did I mention it was also the bride’s birthday last night? πŸ™‚

Yesterday, we completed all the favors. Godiva chocolates, filler paper, and seashells in a black box wrapped in a black bow. They’re awesome, they’re tasty, and they’re beachy.

Somebody wasn’t so psyched about the whole box-assembling idea.

Mom: don’t comment on the fact that you can probably tell which bows are mine.

Since I’m a crazy bridal party maniac right now, I’m giving you a look at some more Bachelorette Party pictures. You’re welcome.

I’m not enlarging this picture so you can see me in all my apron/bikini glory. Baking cupcakes post-beach day and pre-party is not the best idea for put-together efficiency.

the spread

Do you recognize my not-as-pretty version of Jenn’s cookie dough wontons?

They’re supah easy. Go look here for her recipe.

And do you spy some very rushed (but really tasty) cupcakes?

I was going for the cone-bra Madonna era.

I had big plans for these cupcakes, but time constraints didn’t allow those plans to quite materialize.

By the way, I never stray from the Diet Mountain Dew cake route. Mix a box of cake with a can of Diet Mountain Dew (or for chocolate, Diet Dr. Pepper… or any diet soda that matches in color), and the cake is so moist and much lower in fat.

Do it. All you do is pour the diet soda in the cake mix instead of oil, eggs, and/or water, and bake as directed. So easy, so delicious.

And these cupcakes had an oreo in the middle. πŸ˜‰

The bLyss Designs inventory stayed put and added a little somethin’ somethin’ to our deco, too..

And I, of course, made my favorite skinny margs.

(Way better than Bethenny’s stuff. Yeah, I said it.)

And if you think I was too busy to remember to eat, you’re mistaken.

And if you think Lisa-Marie had her heart stolen by a bunch of hotties at our first stop, you are also mistaken.

And if you think I let go of that weenie straw once all night, you’re just plain wrong.

True or False: I’m way too mature to add colorful words into karaoke lyrics noting this in my hand.

There’s a time and place for it, and that’s quite obviously not here. πŸ˜‰

The countdown shrinks to TWO DAYS today… I think Seth and LM are ready.

I have about a billion things to say right now. 1. I need to try that diet pop cake idea – seriously genius! I want to try it right now (if only I weren’t in a research lab boo!). 2. I also want to make skinny margaritas (same applies in this situation). Damn, I can’t do anything right now! haha

21 Meri July 28, 2011 at 6:58 pm

I made a yellow cake mix with orange zevia soda once… it was an incredibly good combo! My question- if you use DMD, is the cake caffeinated? That would give it an edge for me πŸ™‚
This was a really fun post to read through, I’m now gearing up for the next party like this I throw or attend!

Love your apron!! Way too cute! And it really looks like you are just having SO much fun right now! Love it all! πŸ™‚

My birthday was 2 weeks before I got married so it kind of got overlooked in all the wedding/bachelorette stuff so I love that you guys still threw a party for her. πŸ™‚ Hooray for them being so close to the big day! Some of our besties are getting married in 9 days and I’m SO excited for them! πŸ˜€
