Today I attended a funeral. It wasn't a family member or friend of mine, but the grandmother of one of my best friends. As we were driving to the cemetery I was appalled by some of the behavior I noted. The way I was brought up, if you saw a funeral procession pass, you stopped as if were an emergency vehicle. I was always told it was a matter of respect, not to mention manners and just human decency. You never rode beside the processional...not to mention driving beside the processional and running the red lights to boot and you didn't drive between the processional. I noticed that some people did the right thing by stopping. Am I the only one that was brought up this way? What does this say about us if we can't slow down enough to respect the life that was just called home?

Sorry for the rambling. I know this isn't happy blogger content. It's just been on my mind since I left the funeral.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Did you eat yourselves silly...I know I did. I have to say I'm quite surprised I didn't eat a single piece of pumpkin pie. Oh well...there's always Christmas.

I was cruising J Crew today (sigh) and found these cuties. I believe these might be my new obsession. A girl can wish because these babies are a pretty penny.
Chow for now!

Photographer Recommendation

I need help from all in the blog world. I'm looking for a photographer in the proximity of Greensboro, NC to shoot my wedding. If you know anyone or you are a photographer, please leave me a comment with your information. I'm looking for someone that has editorial/photo journalistic style photography. I gladly appreciate the recommendation.

Reception Location

I thought I would share with you the fabulous location of our reception, Proximity Hotel, Greensboro. I hope to start posting a few more details on the wedding...all except the wedding dress. Ha'll have to stay tuned. I think this hotel is just fabulous. It's only a year old and it is the only LEED certified hotel in the area. The staff at this hotel is on point as well. I'm just so happy with the decision to have our reception here. Hope you enjoy the pictures. If you would like to see more of the hotel, the website address is

Just Announced

I haven't spoken on the election or my political views, but the presidential outcome was just announced. We have a new president and I couldn't be happier with who it is. This was an historical campaign and no matter who you voted for or the outcome, I am very proud of all of those who voted and contributed the democratic process. I felt proud to have made my contribution and to make sure my voice was heard.

Here's to the future and to change.

Hello Ladies. Did you miss me? Although I haven't been posting I have been keeping up with your blogs. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been traveling like a mad woman. Four trips to Dallas in six weeks will make anyone a little pooped. I've been taking some of the work load that was left over from a co-worker leaving our company. I've been a busy little bee here lately.

On to some exciting news...the wedding plans are coming along quite nicely. I bought my dress last weekend. I have to say I absolutely adore the dress. I only went to two places, but I tried on at least 40 dresses in a variety of styles. I finally settled on the sweetest dress from David's Bridal. It's super cute and super preppy. I wanted a dress I could be comfortable in during the ceremony and the reception. It's a very simple style and has no train. I didn't want to have to worry about it during the reception....I plan on dancing a lot. Best of all, if I don't want to store it, it's simple enough to cut it off for a cocktail dress. Am I the only one who thinks like this? I just don't see putting my dress in a box and never wearing it again. I don't want to sell it, but don't want to store it either. What do you girls think? What did you do? I may change my mind, but I think I'll probably go with this option. I would love to show you guys a picture, but I'm not sure who is reading and I don't want to ruin my big entrance. Ha Ha. You'll have to stay tuned until I have the pictures from our big day.

We also picked out the save-the-dates finally. So cute. They are white with partial black polka dots and a hint of green in the form of boundary lines. All-in-all, I have to say I feel good with the progression of the planning. Stay tuned for wedding linen and floral details.

I hope you all had a great weekend. Hope you have a fab start to your week. I'll be back soon.

Fall Closet Makeover on the Cheap

It is getting closer to the wedding day so my cash has got to stretch a lot further. I've been very good with shopping recently, but I think I may need to take a little break from my angelic ways. The FI seems to think I have enough clothes...and I probably do...but let's face it, all girls need a seasonal closet update. Let's also face it, there are some seriously good deals out there right now. Look at the cute stuff I found at Old Navy.

Seriously, I get get all of the above for less than $300.00? What? So cute. I intend on visiting Old Navy after work....or at work if I can't wait.
Happy Friday!

If you are trying to be a sustainable as possible with your wedding, you may want to check this nifty idea out. I thought this was very inventive.

This would be a great use of a cereal box (who doesn't like cereal). The FI is a packaging sustainability engineer so I forwarded this on to him. Hey, if I'm creating all the ideas, he could at least help with the execution. These boxes would be great for welcome gifts. A welcome note could be affixed to the top of the box (if there is a stamp as there is here). The box could be stuffed with shredded paper and depending on the size of the box filled with local fare (wine, BBQ sauce, boiled peanuts, local beer, cheese straws). Just thought I would pass this idea along if any of you out there are looking for a different sustainable welcome vessel other than a reusable shopping bag.

This is from Craftzine via A $10,000 Wedding.

Testing Please

Testing. Testing. Is anyone out there. This post is really to see if I have loaded Google analytics correctly. You see, I am less than tech savvy. So sad...I know.

Blog Article

What better place than my blog than to post this link to an article in the New York Times on women and blogs. Just thought it was interesting.


I'm back from another wedding weekend. I'm also sleep deprived and more than a little sarcastic today. Some might refer to it as snarky. I was introduced to this term about two years ago when I was being a brat, and a very honest friend of mine asked "why I was so snarky". I've since adopted the word and use it when appropriate.

I didn't get home from Michigan last night until 12:30 a.m. and then had a 8:00 a.m. meeting this morning. Seriously, who does this? If "you" are out there (and you know who you are) for the love of all that is sacred and holy, please DO NOT under any circumstance, schedule a meeting for 8:00 a.m. on a Monday morning.

I'm feeling a little better now that I've had a Latte (should have gotten that extra shot!). Did I mention I spilled a little on my shirt this morning.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

I'm Coming Out

With my face that is. I haven't ever put pictures of myself on my blog before. The first picture below is of me and my luvie. Isn't he a cutie? This is of my 32nd birthday (gasp!). I sometimes can't believe I'm that old. Oh well, I've had a great life thus far, so I guess it only gets better from here.

This picture is from our Jamaican vacation. We were obviously out to dinner. One of the best we had while on our vacation.

This was the view from our balcony. We never made it to the private island other than to have dinner. It seemed like a hassle to go to the island during the day.

These guys were allowed to roam around the grounds and in the buildings. There was a male with a full tail of feathers. I wanted a picture but never got one.

This was one of the magnificent views that we had on our horse back ride tour. It was fun, but this was the first time I had been on a horse. I have to say I'm not sure that this is my sport. I didn't really enjoy it.

Love Love Love These Invitations

I love these invitations. Miss Cupcake over at the Weddingbee designed these herself. I love how she used the bold colors. I think I've told you guys before that our colors are black, white and green. I've been on the fence a little about what green I want, but seeing these has sealed the deal. I really like how un-traditionally vibrant these are. I think our invitations will be elegant, but playful and will probably have some kind of black and white polka dot on them. I designed our save-the-dates. They aren't as ornate as these, but I think they're cute and express my personality.

Distinctively Southern

Boy, two posts in one hour. I'm on a roll.

I've started thinking a lot about our wedding recently. I really want a elegant wedding, but want people to feel comfortable and enjoy themselves. My fiance is from Michigan and I would like for all of his friends and family to enjoy all that Greensboro, and the south for that matter, have to offer. I think I've said before that we would like to have our rehearsal dinner at our local baseball stadium. Our back up plan if there isn't a home game that night is to have the rehearsal dinner at a local brewery downtown. There is a third story private room that would be perfect for something laid back. This of course would be complete with beer tasting flights (is this fun or what).

Our ceremony will be held at a local park. I love this park and the fact that we will have to do the bare minimum to make this a stunning ceremony site is definitely a bonus.

Our reception is being held a the newest "boutique" hotel in the city. It is such a cool location. Our wedding colors are white and black with green as our accent color. For our cocktails, I plan to offer NC wines, locally brewed beer and Tom Collins with lime slices as our signature cocktails. For the menu, I would love to have the following:

Fried green tomatoes
Pimento cheese tartlets
Country ham tea biscuits

Main Menu (Stations)
NC BBQ pork tenderloin (east and west coast offerings of course)
Shrimp & Grits
Roast Beef
Vegetables (I would love to have fancy collard greens or fried okra as an option)

Desert Option
Banana pudding cups

What do you guys think? Remember, all of this would be prepared with the utmost attention and it wouldn't be tres redneck. I think the fiance is OK with a southern twist, I just want to make sure I'm offering enough options for people. I would love to hear from you ladies. I trust your opinions.

Posh in Green

I wish my office looked like this. I truly heart green. I love the bright energy it provides. It's classic with a twist. Just how I like to see myself. I think I wouldn't mind so much coming to work if I had this to look forward to everyday.

CFL Bulbs

I know buying CFL bulbs is the new eco-conscious thing to do because they use less energy. One thing to consider is that when throwing these bulbs away is that they need to be disposed of properly. I'm sure not many people know that these bubs contain trace amounts of mercury...yes they stuff we have been trying to remove from water sources for years...think tuna. When disposing of these bulbs they shouldn't be thrown away in the regular trash. The mercury levels can leach into landfills if you throw them in the trash. You can find a recycling program in your area by visiting

I'll get off my soap box now. I just wanted all to be aware of this, as it seems to be a dirty little secret.

I was tagged over a week ago by Muffy Martini to list 5 songs I am embarrassed to admit I like.

*Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
*Share 5 songs you are embarrassed to admit to others that you like and tell why.
*Tag 7 random people at the end of post.

1. Ice Ice Baby, by Vanilla Ice (as if y'all didn't know the artist). I know every word of this kidding. I can't get enough of it. Every time it comes on I have to listen the the entire thing. I swear it's like a train wreck that you can't look away from.

2. Islands in the Stream, by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. I think I'm going to have to play this at my wedding. It's an inside thing between me and the FI. Every time we get into a fight and we're in the car, all I have to do is play this song and he smiles. I've got his number!

3. Feels So Right, by Alabama. Again, I love this song so much I think I'm going to have to play it our wedding. When the FI moved away last year and we had only been dating for five weeks, I made him a going away CD. guessed it, this song was on the CD. Can you imagine the cheese head he must have thought I was. Oh, and this song also reminds me of childhood. My dad was a big fan.

4. Footloose, by Kenny Loggins. I used to have this tape when I was a kid and spilled coke on it one day. Unfortunately, Footloose does not sound good as a rap song. So a few months back I downloaded the entire CD. God did this bring back memories of childhood. Can you imagine living in a city where you couldn't dance (he he!).

5. Girls Just Want to Have Fun, by Cyndi Lauper (sp ?). This was the ultimate girl movie (well, other than Dirty Dancing, you know what I'm say'n) when I was growing up. I must have watched this 50 times at slumber parties.

I think everyone else has done this. If not, feel free to play along!

U-haul (it your damn self)

A week without me. I missed you, did you miss me? Sorry for the lack of posts, but I was in the middle of moving the FI from Chicago to Nashville last week. I know you're jealous of all my fun (ha ha). He didn't hire a moving company, so we packed up a U-haul and towed it behind the truck. I really believe they should revise their logo to U-haul (it your damn self).

Anyway, on to fun stuff. I'm in love with these cute pillows. I don't think that I'm going to have a ring bearer, but I think these pillows might be cute as a gift for a little girls room or a dainty guest bedroom. There is something so sweet about these pillows. I saw them over at Style Me Pretty. I think I might have a craft project in my future if I can ever find the time.

Hope everyone had a great start to their week. I'm off to the gym. Oh, red & white preppy, my email address is

Happy Birthday to ME!

As one of my dear friends likes to say on her birthday, it's my birthday, not yours! It literally is all about me today. OK, so I like to think that about everyday, but let's face it, your birthday is truly your special day. My birthday is my favorite day of the year. I love holidays, especially Christmas and the 4th of July, but my birthday is the tops for me.

The FI is coming in tonight, although his flight is delayed...making his arrival 3 hours later. Oh well, I suppose we'll just have a late dinner. Then on from dinner and out to have drinks with my friends. I think tonight I may have to make an exception to my, I don't like to stay out after midnight stance. Although, technically after midnight, it is no longer my birthday. What the heck, we'll make this my birthday weekend. Why only celebrate for a day, when you can have three. It's definitely great that my birthday is on a Friday. I'm not going to lie.

We are also going to Lake Norman on Saturday for the remainder of the weekend. My sister is coming up from Florida so that we can celebrate my parents 40th anniversary. That's a biggie in any one's book. I guess this weekend is truly about celebrations as it's also my sister's (the one from Florida) anniversary.

I'll provide an update on the happenings this weekend on Monday. By then I might have time to download the Jamaica pictures I promised to share last week. I might even have some from this weekend to share.

Until then. Have a great weekend all!

Still Here

No, I did not fall off the face of the Earth. I did fall into the ocean in Jamaica and then straight to NYC for a media tour. Jamaica was fabulous and I promise to post pictures soon. NYC was great. The media tour went very well. Oh, did I mention that the press release I put out this week got picked up by Go me!

I'll be back soon with pictures and maybe an update on my crazy life.

Preppy Princess

I have never posted photos of myself, friends or family on my blog, but I thought it was time to start. Let me be the first to introduce the preppy pet. Her name is Kili and she might be the prissiest cat alive. My friends all say she has my personality. I'm not sure how I should take that though, because she truly is spoiled. She is rather cute and in these pictures it's hard to tell where she ends and the blanket begins.

One Week and Counting

Until we leave for Jamaica. I'm so excited it makes it hard to work. Plus the fact it is a gorgeous day and I wish I were already lying pool side. Well at least I have a few extra days at the gym to get the body bikini ready. Wish me luck!

Bad Habit

I am such a bad blogger. I've been a little crazy at work and my travel has had me all over the place. First it was to Chicago, then Michigan for a wedding, then back to Chicago and then home. Did I mention that all of this travel was in the course of one weekend? After getting home on Sunday night at 1:30 am, I left for Des Moines, IA on Monday and then finally came home on Tuesday night.

I work in PR and advertising, so I made a little trip to Des Moines to make a media pitch. I think it went well. I must admit that I love all things PR, but I'm not big on giving presentations to large groups. I used to be great at it, but now for some reason it really freaks me out. I need to get this under control as an adult career usually requires presentations in front of groups.

Back to the title of the post. My bad habit is picking out the best portions of cereal, party mix, trail mix, etc. I actually avoid buying certain cereals so I won't do this. I bought Raisin Bran yesterday and have already started picking out the sugar raisins. This is such a bad habit.

Whim on Sale!

I know you girls love Whim by Cynthia Rowley at Target because I've been reading your entries for the last month. Here's a tip...all the Whim items at my local Target in Greensboro are 50% off. Run, don't walk to your nearest Target before the pieces you haven't gotten yet are all gone. I just checked the and the items online haven't been marked down yet.

Sweets for a Good Cause

I'm not sure how many of you out there are reading my blog that aren't reading The Preppy Wedding, but I wanted to share this anyway. On June 14 & 15 Wendy's will donate 50 cents from the sale of every Frosty product, including new Frosty Shakes, at participating restaurants, to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. This is a good way to make a contribution and get something sweet in return. You know we all love sugar, so skip the Ben & Jerry's this weekend and pony-up for a good cause. Help bring a child to a home they can call their own.

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Sorry I've been MIA since last week. I had a busy weekend with the FI and then had a busy first half of the week at work.

The weekend update goes like this. FI was supposed to fly in Friday night for our engagement party on Saturday night. He got delayed repeatedly due to storms in the Chicago area and finally arrived at 11am Saturday morning. We missed our Friday night together, but at least he made it for our engagement party. How embarrassing would it have been to be sans FI at OUR party. The party was great! My friends really out did themselves. The dress was cute, but I felt like I looked like a table cloth. Also, if the angle was right, I looked as big as a table. I would post pictures, but I don't think they turned out exceptionally well (see the statement about looking like a table). I don't have a problem sharing pictures of us, I just can't find that many cute ones (where we both look good). Hopefully we'll get some good ones when we go to Jamaica. The good thing that came from the shots of me looking like a beached whale is that I need to start working out more often. After many years of being super skinny and watching what I eat very carefully, I've discovered I really like food....good food. I'm not willing to starve myself, so I guess I have no other choice by to work harder.

Anyway, back to the weekend. The Friday night we lost due to storms was made up for on Sunday night, again due to storms. We finally got to play the 80's edition Trivial Pursuit he got me for my birthday last year. Yes, I love trivia, but have never been able to beat the FI. Let's face it, if there were a trivia game dedicated to clothing, shoes, handbags, accessories and brand knowledge, I would beat the pants off of him. Oh well.

Hope you're having a good week.

I Relapsed

Yes, my addiction rears its ugly head again. My friends are throwing the FI and I an engagement party this weekend and the dress is "Dressy Casual". I do have enough dresses (due to the afore mentioned addiction), but I found this dress at Target and it is so cute. I tried it on hoping it wouldn't fit, but if fit like a dream. I thought this dress would be great with nude color heels. I guess right now I'm just making a confession and rationalizing another dress. Oh well, at least it will look cute in pictures.

Cosmos and Sex

Sorry for the overt title, but this is truly what Sex and the City is all about. I have been waiting so long for this movie to come out. I know I'm not alone when I say I cried at the end of the last episode. So next week on Wednesday my girlfriends and I are going to see this movie and then go for drinks afterward. I believe there may be a round of cosmos or two.

I think I may have to channel my inner Charlotte with a cute outfit. Let's face it, I don't think this is going to happen again and I might as well bring it for the end of an era.

My Obsession

I have a slight obsession with cupcakes. I don't eat them nearly as much as I would like, but the obsession has deep roots. I think it only fitting that I share my obsession with guest at our wedding. We plan on having cupcakes instead of a traditional cake with a cake topper for us to cut. I haven't decided on the type or style of cupcakes yet, but until I do, I'll be supplying you with plenty of tasty temptations.

I can't remember where I found this image, but I thought these looked so simple and fresh for a spring wedding.

I found these pretty pieces on Cupcakes Take The Cake. These are so elegant and refined. I love the fondant hearts and ribbon treatment. I think they may be a bit too sophisticated for the laid back preppy wedding we are striving for.

I found these on the Martha Stewart Weddings site. These are a bit too bright for me, but I love how the fondant hearts have the couple's initials on them. I think there is a way to tie all these together to achieve the perfect preppy cupcake tower. Wish me luck!

Mason Jar Find

This is the cutest idea. It looks to me like these are cupcakes in a mason jar. The bakery is Bangerang Bake Shop. I would have never thought of that. There are so many uses for mason jars, but here in the south the top two are homemade canned products and a vessel for sweet tea. I like the idea of using the mason jar. I might use them for wedding favors (for candy). I wanted something a little more unique than a box or a bag and also wanted to provide something to my guest that could be reused.

Who knew mason jars could be so cute? Wouldn't these be cute with jelly beans in our wedding colors (green and white) tied with a black and white polka dot bow (black is the third wedding color). I'm not fond of licorice, so that is not something you would find in any of my candy choices. I would label this with a card that had our initials and the note that "love is sweet".

Friday, May 16, 2008

Dear J

J Crew that is. Why must you temp me with such cute clothes during a time that is supposed to be all about saving? If it's not too much trouble could you put this on sale?

And this too?

If I say pretty please, will you do it? I really need these to add to my collection.

Thanks Martha

I'm not sure who out there is reading this blog, but if you are, you know that I am engaged and planning a wedding. A little more background on me: I am 31, the youngest of four girls and am pretty far along in my career for someone my age. Needless to say, I, along with my FI will be paying for this wedding. Although I consider myself to have somewhat refined taste (and some might say expensive) I am trying to be budget conscious in regards to this wedding. Thanks to suggestions from Martha Stewart, it's easing the stress of trying to figure out how on Earth I'm going to achieve the wedding I want without going into some serious debt. I've been reading wedding blogs, buying books, magazines, on-line name it, I've done it. When I was on Martha Stewart Weddings (.com) today, I found cute centerpiece ideas. Any of these would be great alternatives to expensive floral arrangements. I also picked up the newest Martha Stewart Wedding Inspirations book and found some additional ideas.

I found this idea for luminary center pieces to be devine. In the book I reference above, there are other luminaries that are just as cute. Mixed in with small flower arrangements I think this would make an elegant centerpiece.

I thought this was too cute. I was planning on using potted plants at certain areas at my reception. I was going to give one plant to each of our parents and keep one for us. I think it is only fitting that each have a card addressed to our parents to "let the love grow".

I love this idea too. I think this would be cute to place on the gift table and on the favor table.


I talked to the FI this morning. I am excited to say that he might be moving closer to me. Not to say that a six hour drive is closer, but let's face it, it's much better than a plane ride. This made my day. I must not get my hopes up though, because there is still a chance that it won't happen. No rain on my parade yet though!

New Seersucker

These are my new shorts. Cute aren't they? They had such a good selection of them at Target I may go back and get the green/white version. These are going to look so cute for my Jamaican vacation this summer. I think a white button down shirt, brown strappy sandals, brown belt and pearls will dress these up nicely.

Garden Party

How cute would this be for a garden party or an intimate wedding?

If Only

I had a beach house. This is how I would decorate it...and I'd be heading there today after work. One can dream.

And this would be right outside my back door.

Pottery Barn, why do you tease me so?

Addicted to Dresses

Yes, I'll admit it openly. I have an addiction to dresses. It started as a harmless flirtation. Now I think at last count I had around 55 dresses. Yes, I think I need an intervention. But, don't you think this dress is too cute for a wedding? I bought this for one of the four weddings I have this spring. I intend to wear it with cute pink high-heel sandals. Both were from Ann Taylor. You should seriously take a look at their site if you have any upcoming weddings this spring or summer. You won't regret it.

Hopped Up

On sugar and caffeine that is. I have been typing so fast I think my finger nails are in jeopardy of breaking. I love this early morning feeling I get when I drink sweet tea before work and grab a cup of coffee when I get here. So productive until about 11am when I'm ready for a nap.

New to the Game

I'm new to the whole blog game, so I guess we'll see how this goes. I started looking at other people's blogs when I started planning my wedding and it snow balled somehow to an addiction. I swear, it's worse than crack. I do find it interesting to read about other people's's kind of like Cliff's notes to reality TV.

Speaking of planning a wedding, have you ever tried to plan a wedding when you're in NC and your FI is in Chicago, IL? Trust me when I say there is a lot of email correspondence.

So yes, I planning my wedding. I have to admit I thought I would hate planning, but I love it. Picking the flowers, creating the the save-the dates, the parties. Need I say more?

Well, I guess this was a successful first entry. It's kind of like writing in your high school journal. I wasn't very good at keeping that up, so hopefully I'll stick with this.
