Post Wedding Hair…and GREAT NEWS!

I’ve had long hair for most of my life (except for my adolescent bowl cut and post-Locks for Love donation). Most brides grow their hair out specifically for their wedding, and they’re usually ready to give their high-maintenance hair a good chop once the wedding festivities are over. I’m definitely getting a little tired of my current hair style, but instead of drastically changing my length, I’d rather change up the color. Check out my inspiration below, and tell me what you think! Now for some great news if you live in the Omaha area: I was recently introduced to Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic} through my sister and the amazing Cather Circle Organization. Omaha has been needing a stylish and modern bridal boutique for a LONG time. I spent a lot of time and money traveling to Minneapolis to get my wedding gown (five trips in 14 months), and some of you might recall Brett’s dress hunt in Kansas City (it was a 14 hour trip). I was lucky enough to sit down with Jocelyn, the uber creative store owner, to talk about her vision for Ready or Knot. I’ll post the interview next week (once I have some free time after the wedding…). Then you’ll get another taste of Ready or Knot when I give you a recap of my sister’s visit to the store to find her wedding gown. So spread the word! Ready or Knot should be your first stop when shopping for a bridal gown!

Cooking with your Honey: Pancakes

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s also my favorite meal of the day. I love sleeping in on Saturdays and making eggs and pancakes with Rich. Breakfast is the perfect meal to make with your significant other because the recipes are usually easy to execute, and it’s a great way to start the day together. Rich and I have a tradition of making sweet corn pancakes on game days (for our CORNhuskers…) Other notable breakfast items include muesli from the Swissotel in Chicago and the simple, but always delicious, poached egg on toast. Here are some recipes Rich and I plan on trying out. Aren’t those penguin waffles adorable!?! You can put syrup in their bellies!

Wedding Awards

Normally I feel a little sluggish on Mondays, but it’s wedding week! I had the most amazing bachelorette party this past weekend. I want to thank all of my friends and family members who were able to make it. I felt so loved! So to get this week started off right, here is some great wedding inspiration from last week. Enjoy!

Happy Weekend

We only have one weekend left until Rich and I get married. It’s hard to believe it’s almost here. We’ve been engaged for about 20 months, so I am completely ready for our special day! My sister and my mom are throwing me a bridal shower/bachelorette party this weekend, and it will be so nice to relax and catch up with friends. I’m incredibly lucky to have so many wonderful friends and family in my life. I have AMAZING news to share with you next week. Expect a post on Wednesday or Thursday. See you on Monday! Here
