i'm out

Today has felt like the beginning of the weekend for me.
I think because it's been such a wonderful day.

I spent the afternoon with my pup by my side while I finished some not so fun wedding tasks i.e. wrote the program, thank you notes, passport application.

The later half of the afternoon was spent in the kitchen.
I don't think it comes as a shock to anyone that this always makes me happy.

Tomorrow the fiance and I are having a date night of sorts.
I baked a banana cream pie for the occasion.

I was inspired by the lovely Seven Spoons blog.
If you don't already check it out often, you should.

Then I threw together some frozen banana treats.
This was unbelievably easy and they are pretty tasty.
I topped a few with cut up sugar free reese cups.

Then I made our dinner...Chicken Salad Piccata.

Mr. P said he really liked it and that always makes me happy. :)

Tomorrow I'm spending the day with sister.
We have a few errands to run, a little sunshine to catch and then we are going to try on my dress for the first time. I"M SO EXCITED FOR THIS! It's been so long since I last tried on the beauty I've almost forgotten what she looks like on.
Sister will also be trying on her bridesmaid dress for the first time as well bridal gowns for upcoming wedding (date still tbd!).
I'm so anxious I probably won't be able to sleep tonight.

After a fun-filled day Mr. P and I plan to get in a quick workout, eat chicken tacos and then have a little dance lesson.
P ordered us a beginners dance dvd quite awhile back and I'm thrilled to finally put it to use.

We wanna practice some moves before we take an actual class.
The plan is for us to kill it on the dance floor during our "first dance".

Saturday is another jam-packed day...
Missy (bridesmaid) and Matthew's couples' shower followed by Teddy's graduation party.

Sunday is our fantasy football draft.

It's VERY safe to say I'll be smiling from ear to ear from now until Monday.

So please excuse me for sneaking out early.
See you in a few days.
