Something Saturdays (4/25/15)

Last weekend was so nice-Michael and I spent some much needed time together. We had a meeting with his uncle about our place cards, table #'s, and programs. Then we went shopping and bought Michael a BUNCH of new shorts and shirts (he rarely gets new clothes so this was exciting) and we went out to dinner. Sunday we mostly relaxed and got things done at home but then we had dinner with one of my bridesmaids, Carrie, and her boyfriend, Jon. Michael hadn't met them yet so we were due! And we had SUCH a good time, Michael totally loved them!

This week was mostly just spent getting things done. There was a last minute update to my dress (added a little bit of lace in between other parts of lace on the bodice to help add a bit of extra structure) and went out with Michael's work friends again. And I worked (and am working today).

I'm mostly just SUPER excited about tomorrow because it's MY family's bridal shower! All of my bridesmaids (except for Emily who's in NYC) will be there and both sides of my family. I can't wait!

Oh yeah and as a Disney and 90's music fan this video made my life:

Movies/TV Talk (assume there'll be spoilers)
Once Upon a Time-Well, they certainly did NOT make any grey area for Cruella! Turns out she's a psychopath so...yeah. It was actually a really good episode, I feel so bad that poor Emma killed her though :(

Jane the Virgin-Stupid stupid Raphael. This had better get fixed soon!

The Originals-Aghh I figured either Aiden or Josh would end up dead :( So sad! And then poor Klaus (yepp, I said it-poor Klaus) taking the fall for it. And getting daggered.

Finding Carter-I did not like this episode. At all.

The Vampire Diaries-Caroline realizing she destroyed her mother's last message to her was so heartbreaking. And I'm still peeved about the entire Elena/cure situation.

Supernatural-Sam handled Rowena masterfully. Awesome. And it was good to see Benny again, even if he wasn't real.

Criminal Minds-My brain just got totally confused by that episode.

Glitz and Garters Review

Something old...something new...something borrowed...something blue.

For me those things are being represented by my wedding dress (which used to be my mom's), either my veil, shoes, earrings, or tiara (all are new so...*shrug*), an old rosary that the women in my family all hold for their wedding day beautiful blue garters from Glitz and Garters!
Glitz and Garters is an Etsy shop that sells, you guessed it, garters!  Ranging in price from $19.95-$39.95 (and that includes 2 garters--one of which would get tossed during the garter toss! However, if you are not doing the garter toss or are not interested in keeping a garter, you can also get just 1 garter at a reduced price) these are by far the most reasonably priced, and prettiest, garters I could find! So I was thrilled when they offered to partner with me for this review and send me a set!

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

When you just want a classic chocolate chip cookie but you also don't want to a FULL ON unhealthy one because it's the day of one of your final wedding dress fittings and you reeeeally don't want your alterations woman to poke your fat again.

That's the time for these cookies.
FYI-I got validation that I have lost weight at my fitting so...good news!

And these cookies-while not as overtly healthy as some others I've been posting (like the chickpea deep dish ones!) are still pretty decent. They have no butter-the fat comes from coconut oil and greek yogurt, and those are pretty darn healthy sources. And there's whole wheat flour! So, not healthy. But not horribly unhealthy either. And they are taaaasty.
I will warn you: these are best warm. generally true of cookies but when my brother tried a cooled cookie he said it tasted kind of funny. Whereas I always eat them warmed up and they just taste like a good old fashioned delicious CCC to me. So, really, why aren't you eating your cookies warm anyway? What are you-a Michael? (Seriously...that boy. He's a silly silly head.)
