1 Month to Go

Tomorrow, May 12th officially marks the 1 month mark till our wedding. I am so excited I could scream. Thanks to http://www.theknot.com/ I know that I am on track and what things I still need to take care of. This weekend I went with one of my bridesmaids Sybil to C and C Hair in Stone Mountain. They should call this place world of weave because that is what it is. I have never seen so many hair pieces, wigs, and bags of all types of fake hair in my life. It was a bit overwhelming because all we wanted was a little oomfh to our exsisting hair. I found a perfect match while Sybil was not as lucky. Why don’t they make ash brown hair??? She decided to dye her ash hair dark brown and then return to C and C to make a purchase.

Centerpiece building is going well. I am making a trip today to pick up all of the pieces I have collected so far to make the cutest centerpieces. The bottle with orchid above is one of the pieces that I have made. I am quite proud of it. I have also found some great ideas for using succulents in boutioneers that I am excited about.
Also on the plate this week is compiling our must-play song cds for our DJ. We have a few of them including the songs that we will walk down the ailse at the beginning and end of the ceremony. In addition we have to pick out our selections for wine, beer, and food. Making choices is not easy! Weeeeee!

Everyboy’s Got Their Something

For some it is The Bachelor, American Idol,The Deadliest Catch, Big Brother…etc. For me it is Ice Road Truckers, Dirty Jobs, Rock of Love, The Hills and this season of The Real World. I am a sucker for this, the 20th season, of the show that birthed all reality TV shows. Why do I care if Joey has to go to rehab or Nick’s boss at Movies.com dies of cancer? I don’t know but what I do know is that I was bawling when both of these things happened. I know I need to get a life but really it is just my guilty pleasure. If Amy Winehouse can have her crack I can have my angst-ridden, drunken 20-somethings.

So with that being said, I send showers of praise over one of the Real Worlders….Brianna Taylor. Now this girl came to the house fresh off of the strippers stage and battery charges against her ex but I still liked her immediately. Her failed attempt at American Idol did not squelch her dreams of being a singer and that was what brought her to the fabulous house in Hollywood that MTV built. She wanted it bad but not bad enough to get her butt off of the sofa until roomy Will said, “You have to make it happen for yourself here. Don’t waste this opportunity”. She began writing songs,cutting back on the smokes(a little bit), and singing in front of Manns Chinese Theatre for tips. And the girl can wail too.

As things do in MTV land one thing lead to another and she got to sing with Alex Band(The Calling) at a small nightclub. Next she met and chatted with one of her roomies producer friends who granted her request to help her with her demo. The result is a great song called Summertime. It is great summer, feelgood, chick music and I love it. Go over to iTunes and check it out and the other songs on her EP. And if you like them throw the girl some bucks. Haven’t you ever had a dream?
