Thought it might help to post the bridesmaid dress, to get perspective on the shoes. Duh.

It's official. My procrastination has bit me in the butt, or is it bud? It's knip it in the bud. Bite me in the butt. Whatever, the whole point is that my Christmas list is growing, without any checks being made, New Year's is right around the corner (which shouldn't be a holiday with stress, but I want to plan something!) and my wedding is Feb. 23!
I must get myself organized. All the big decisions are made for the wedding - venues booked, pastor booked, vendors hired. Time for all the small details. Which can make the wedding. I have to focus my ADD brain and get to making lists before I stress myself out anymore. This post is in attempt to do just that. Let's start:
- Decide what the cake should look like and call the cake lady
- Let the florist know what flowers should be on the cake
- Pick the MENU - which I'm very excited about. If the CC would give me the new options!!!
- Write up the invitation and programs for my friend SD to design
- Decide if the guys are wearing tuxes or black suits - decisions, decisions!
- Order BMs shoes - this is a huge decision since I'm obsessed with shoes - see pics above
- How to wear my hair - and get a dang veil!!! My cousin who recently wed is on this one.
- Where should we have the rehearsal dinner?
That's just the tip of the iceberg, however, helps me get organized. So thanks for reading. XOX!

This is my sweet little baby, Habibi. We call him Bibi for short. He's a 20-month old Yorkie Poo pup, full of energy and full of love for his momma. I have to admit, he melts my heart.
Back to the point. Last Thursday, I left work a little early, picked up Bibi and headed for the vet. He loves to go on "bye-byes," so he eagerly jumped up and down when I told him. Little did the poor little guy know. He had a distemper shot. Didn't flinch. He might be little, but he is brave.
We left the vet, headed for my grandma's house. Bibi's favorite place in the world. Of course, he tore out of the car, and beelined for her back door, like he usually does. He's always ecstatic to see Grandma. I can't breathe her name, unless he gets to see her because his ears perk up and he begins jumping up and down like a ping pong ball.
I chatted it up with Grandma as Bibi tore through the house, occasionally stopping for a bit of attention. Grandma noticed his eye was swollen. I thought it might be from the hydrogen peroxide the vet used to clean his eye goobers. One eye was swollen. Then the other. Next thing I know, we're on our way to the animal hospital and his nose and lip were huge.
Two shots, one in each bum cheek later, the vet sent him home. The whole experience made me very thankful that he's normally a healthy little guy. By the time we got home, it was like nothing ever happened. Oh to be so resilient. Dogs have it good.

I've read other's blogs and really enjoyed them. So now I've finally got myself into this new cyber world, and created my own.
What will my blog be about? Most likely about the things I love. What might that be, you ask. Life. Cooking. Drinking good wine. Traveling. Shopping. Finding the perfect black dress. Or the perfect pair of shoes. Probably several perfect pairs.
