At least I have started my pre-wedding running routine, so maybe it will counter balance these sugary treats. Spencer and I have been running every day for the last 10 days. I'm proud of us! We do the 3 mile loop of our neighborhood, which is good because it's nice and shaded and has a few little hills (which make me feel like I'm working my butt muscles!!). Starting tomorrow (July 1st) I'm back on the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred...that gives me exactly 2 months of running and shredding to get in Aruba shape!

Of course, the lovely Kitchen-Aid Mixer. We didn't register for the red one though, just the plain stainless steel. I think J would die if we got this and I actually made him cookies that weren't slice and bake.
Oneida Chandler 65 piece Flatware set from Macy's. We are currently using my parents old silverware set from their wedding IN 1976! Definitely time for an upgrade. And I'm trying REALLY hard not to be a registry stalker, but I have looked a few times and someone has already bought this for us!!! So excited!
Glass Candlesticks from Crate and Barrel - this is actually a set of 3 in different sizes. I think they would look perfect as the centerpiece on our dining room table. Calphalon Stainless Steel 12 quart stock pot. Perfect for making soup in the winter! This matches the rest of our Calphalon pots and pans that we recieved last Christmas.
What are/were your favorite things that you registered for?

Anyways, a while back (like, seriously, March), I ordered this dress from J.Crew with the intentions on wearing it to my bridal shower. Hey, I like to be prepared ok?
It came, it fits perfectly and I love it. I don't own anything that color and I think it's so girly and cute! So it's been tucked away in my closet, awaiting my shower. I've asked my MOH if she thinks it's an appropriate shower dress and she said definitely, it's the perfect thing to wear.
My question is...what sort of jewelry should I wear? The dress is very classic and tailored, so I'm not sure if I should go classic and just do like a strand of pearls and pearl studs, or try to make it a little bit more trendy with fun colored or chunky jewelry? I don't want to look uptight or stuffy...my shower is actually on a Friday night so I have a feeling it's going to be a little different than a typical Sunday afternoon shower. I'm planning on wearing a pair of nude colored peep toed pumps, just to keep it neutral.
So any suggestions on types of jewelry that may go with the dress or stores I can check out to find something would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Beautiful set of cake cutting knives from Pottery Barn with an "E" engraved on both handles. I adore them! So classic and we can use them forever. Of course, I stuck them in our "wedding closet" since I can't use them until the wedding!
A New set of Tervis Tumblers...with crabs! Love them...perfect for summer drinks!
We're having J's parents over this Sunday for Father's Day. Does anyone have any really good dessert recipes? Of course, J's mom is like Betty Crocker and I am NOT, so I always struggle to find good desserts to serve. Any easy and delicious recipes would be greatly appreciated!
Another busy week with 3 weddings again at work this weekend (can you tell its wedding season??)...Happy Wednesday! The only thing getting me through today is happy hour tonight with my girls! YAY!
