Fun Facts Friday + Playlist

Happy FREAKIE Friday, folks!

Weeeeeeeeeee maaaaaaaaaade it :)

I'm here to share a few fun facts with you this Friday...

1) I am getting SO excited for our wedding.

Last night, I took Justin's sisters, Dani & Tayler, to look at some bridesmaid dresses since they can't make it out when I am meeting my other bridesmaids next weekend. 

We found some GREAT options that I cannot wait to show the rest of the girls! :)

Most of the ones we loved were Bill Levkoff dresses - has anyone else ever used those or worn them in a wedding? They are gorgeous and his fabric comes in the PRETTIEST colors.

I will definitely do a whole post on the bridesmaids dress once it has been selected.

I also got to put on my dress for the girls.

The good news is: I still LOVE it.

I was a little nervous I would have somewhat of a change of heart or start second guessing my decision, but it was the same feeling all over again - I didn't want to take it off.

I told the lady at the store "I feel like a glass of champagne!," and she said "me too!"


I didn't mean I wanted one, although then it instantly sounded fabulous, I meant I actually FELT like a glass of champagne - long, fancy, classy...and...bubbly??

Ok, well maybe not bubbly, but I did feel giddy :)

2) I seriously believe in food hangovers. 

Justin & I took his sisters out for Chinese after dress shopping. 

We went to Venus, an upscale Chinese restaurant in Park Ridge (thank you, Ashley, for telling me about it!). 

It was amazing, but I seriously feel like I have a food (maybe sodium?) hangover today.

Pot stickers, crab rangoon, and curry chicken stir fry...oh em gee, so good.

Lots of water and clean eats for me this Friday (maybe).

3) My Dove promise message yesterday definitely won out over my fortune cookie fortune.

"Do something spontaneous."

I absolutely LOVE being spontaneous, but I feel like my lifestyle has not allowed for it so much lately.

I'm going to make it a goal to do something spontaneous this weekend - anyone in with me??

4) My new playlist is pretty darn good.

I'm sorry it took me so long to get it to you!

I'm gonna call this one the "spring shuffle," because even though there is snow on the ground in Chicago today, I think we are all thinking about getting moving and ready for SPRING :)

2) Bullet, Jessie James
