Mi Vida Loca!

It has been waaaaaaaaay too long my blogging friends! I have had time here and there to read your blogs, but I haven't had any time for my own postings. With wedding planning breathing down my neck (4 months out) and starting a new job on Monday, my schedule has been nuts.

I do have some exciting news to share:

A) I will be starting a fab new job on Monday. This job comes with a fab new paycheck and will actually allow me to use my MBA - what a novel concept! The only downside is I'm going from a capri pants and polo setting to a heels and hose setting, so that will be tough the first couple of weeks.

B) My engagement announcement finally came out in our hometown newspapers, and I got a call on Tuesday to come and pick up some wedding gifts! These two were from a local jewlery store that carries tons of great stuff. I got 4 monogrammed iced tea glasses and a matcing lucite monogrammed drink tray and pitcher - just perfect for Sunday brunch on the patio!

C) (Which relates to B) I am so organized lately that I wrote the thank you notes for the gifts on the same day I received them. I used my gorgeous embossed monogram notes from Lemon Tree Paperie. I also went strawberry picking with my nephew, bought a whole flat, dame home and made 75 mini-jars of "Lovin' Spoonful Strawberry Jam" (yes that's what I put on the labels) to use in my gift bags for OOT wedding guests. Monogram Momma would be so proud!

D) (Which relates to A) Do any of you preppy girls have suggestions for office supplies (blotter, trays, pencil cup, etc.) I want to start this new job in style and I want my desk to be as fab as the job!

E) Polo Guy and I have been looking for the perfect look for the guys in the wedding. I'm not into the whole tux thing - sometimes it looks way too "prom-ish" (is that even a word!?). We've decided on charcoal grey suits, black wingtips, and some sort of VV tie, just to make it fun. The guy at the store is going to order me samples of everything they have in pink and I can then decide on a design (sometimes it pays to be from a small town!). I just hope everything turns out as well as it did for Jen at Preppy Wedding. Her details and photos are AWESOME. I'm so glad she's continuing with her blog and helping out other brides-to-be.

I think that's it for now, but I'll try to do better with my blogging!

Congrats on the new job. For office-supply stuff, I love "See Jane Work" and "Ballard Designs" and I'm sure you've seen the new Vera Bradley stuff - love it!

Congratulations on the new job! I recently started a new job too so I can relate. You'll be great.

Also, I second Ballard Design for cute office supplies.

I bought some cool office supplies at www.seejanework.com. I highly recommend them. Everything was delivered wrapped in tissue.
