Successful Saturday!

Evenin’ friends! Hope you had a good Saturday!! Mine was pretty successful.

My day started off early, at 5:45am, since my mom and I had to go to Arkansas to deal with my dress situation. I knew exactly what I wanted for breakfast. Can you guess?? Oatmeal, of course!!


Banana Oatmeal base topped with some of the mashed banana, raspberries, Simply Fruit Raspberry preserves, and a spoonful of PB. Loved the raspberry addition!! Especially the Simply Fruit Raspberry! Delish!!

After breakfast we made the hour and 45 minute drive to Low’s Bridal to deal with  my wedding dress that was too tight. Well, I tried it on and they basically said that they thought it fit and looked fine. Ha! Well, if I can’t sit and can barely breathe, it’s a bit too tight and something needs to be done!! So, the alterations lady said that the dress would be able to be let out some if I wanted, and I definitely want that!! I still think the dress was sized or made wrong because they had me try on the size larger that they had in the store and it was huge!! Like literally falling off!! But there’s nothing I can do about it now.

I was mad that we came all the way down there and they thought it looked fine. Ugh. They aren’t the ones who have to wear it and feel uncomfortable! I hate tight clothes and I definitely wanted my wedding dress to be comfortable! But when we got home, I tried it on again and we really looked at all the seams and there is a good amount of fabric to be let out so I think it will be fine and will all work out! Whew! Just wish we didn’t have to drive so far to be told that! But, needless to say, I am much happier with the dress situation than I was!


After we got back in town, my mom and I decided to go wedding shoe shopping! I found some really cute ones I like! My mom is going to purchase them tomorrow and I can’t find any pics online, so I will post pics tomorrow :)


After shoe shopping, it was lunch time!! And Panera just happened to be right in the same shopping center!!


As always, I got the “You Pick 2” deal and had Veggie Soup and a Side Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette. Oh, and I definitely ate it all! Including the whole grain baguette!! Yum!




After lunch, we did a little more shopping and then went home(back to my parents). My mom and I were tired from getting up so early, so it was time to relax!!

Meanwhile, my awesome dad was at my house dealing with the plumbers!! Today was also the day that the plumbers were scheduled to come bust up my floors and fix my pipes! He volunteered to take care of that so my mom and I could deal with the dress situation! I love my dad :)  He was at my house all day! And I am so happy to say that the plumbing is fixed!! Wohoo!! Now, just gotta finish getting the floor guys in order so I don’t have to live with broken hardwood floors for too long! Haha :)


My snack this afternoon:


Apple Cinnamon Rice Cakes and Cheddar Cheese Popcorn.


I had one thing in mind for dinner tonight: PIZZA!!


I got an individual Boboli pizza crust and topped it with

  • Pizza Sauce
  • Chopped onion, bell pepper, and broccoli
  • Shredded cheddar and mozzarella
  • BBQ sauce

This creation turned out great! But then again, I think any pizza would be great!!


I also had some stir fried veggies my mom made. I had this serving plus one more small pizza slice and more veggies. Yum!!




I also had a small glass of Sauv Blanc


Oyster Bay is definitely one of my faves!!

And I had to have some more Cookie Dough Ice Cream for dessert!! I love ice cream!!


Now I am stuffed! I really need to lay off the sweets! It’s just so hard!

Are you a sweets lover?? How do you lay off the sweets?


Sadie was being very un-photogenic but Georgia wanted some blog loving!!


Georgia says hi!!


Did you have a SUCCESSFUL SATURDAY today??


  1. I can't believe they thought it looked ok on you. I obviously haven't seen you in the dress but if its tight and you are uncomfortable I would think that would be obvious! I hope they alterations go smoothly! And Yeah for pluming being fixed! You really did have a very successful Saturday! :D

  2. You have now given me a way to use my leftover bbq sauce AND convinced me that I want oatmeal for breakfast! Thank you :D

  3. Sounds like a very productive day. So glad you don't have to worry about the dress anymore. They probably just said it looked fine to make themselves feel better for screwing it up in the first place.

    Can't wait to see the shoes!

  4. You've almost talked me into trying oatmeal. Almost.
