A few weeks ago one of my bridesmaids, Miss Amber Foxx, threw me the best bridal shower ever! It was at her lovely home, the perfect setting. She had decorated it all in my wedding colors: light pink, teal, white and gold. Everything was beautiful! Even though Southern California was in the middle of a horrible rain storm, most people made it to the shower, so it was nice to see my friends and family come together for the first time. While you can't experience it fully though photos, I knew you would all love to see it!

A few weekends ago Zack and I celebrated our 7th and last dating anniversary at Disneyland- a tradition since our first 6th month anniversary!
Before we head into the park I like to visit my favorite sweet shop downtown- Just to look!

I have been thinking a lot about bridal lingerie lately. I had tried my wedding dress on with every piece of lingerie I own and nothing worked. Mostly because my dress is strapless and mostly everything I own has straps on it. I also normally favor black, so my one strapless long line bra is black and shows though my white wedding dress. This specific bra is vintage and happens to be the most uncomfortable undergarment I own. Every time I wear it I have red marks under my arms that last for weeks! This is not exactly how I want to feel on my wedding day, so I knew I needed something else to wear under my dress.

A few months ago I was contacted by TLC to be considered for their new show, My Collection Obsession (later changed to My Strange Obsession). I was referred by fellow blogger Ashley of Lisa Freemont Street, who also referred the fabulous Doris Mayday to the show scouts. I figured they would pick Doris for sure, so why bother right? I spoke with Doris about it because she is so friendly and open about it, and she said the scouts were talking to her but still considering other options because they were unsure what they wanted for the show. They said they wanted someone totally living in the 50s, like no internet, phone, etc. Obviously, no one really lives like that! But, I decided it wouldn't hurt to give it a shot, right? So they interviewed me over the phone and then asked that I make a 5 minute video to submit it to them. It was a busy week for us, but we did it quickly after work one night. We did it all in one take, even though a messed a few things up (I called the bathtub the stove-doh).
A few weeks ago we went to Hollywood for the Fish Fry Speakeasy. It's a free monthly record hop put on by our friend Chris aka DJ Lucky La Rocka. It is a great place to meet up with your friends, grab a drink or two, and dance!
While I was there, Chris played one of my fav songs from Don Cavalli's The Pharoah record. I was so excited that I had to see this record in person. I have always wanted it but it is so hard to find and very expensive. If anyone has one lying around, feel free to send it to me!

I knew I always wanted a 1950’s prom themed wedding reception, that is why I bought the perfect white prom dress when I found it at Viva Las Vegas in 2010, before I was even engaged! The seller that I got the dress from, Boss Vintage in Denver, suggested it was not actually a prom dress because an all white dress was too mature for prom. Rather instead that it was probably a graduation dress (because we mature so much in those few months between prom and graduation, right?). No biggie, it looks like a prom dress to me, so I am sticking to it!
