This week I…

+ had a facial, three separate wax/threading appointments, a mani/pedi, and a blowout. Looking pretty is exhausting! :)

+ took my mom to lunch at Kokkari. I love that place.

+ drank water and took vitamins like a crazy person when I thought I might be getting sick on Monday night. Crisis averted.

+ put on an out of office reply. Best feeling ever.

+ have a huge dinner planned for tonight at one of our favorite restaurants. I cannot wait to see so many people we love in one place!

+ am getting married tomorrow. Nine years and 364ish days after our first date, I’m making things official with my best friend and soul mate. (You really didn’t think I’d have that many beauty appointments in a week just because, right?)

Speaking of crazy person, I also have content lined up for you next week, while Joe and I take a little jaunt down to Mexico. I can tell you this much: you’ll definitely want to check back on Monday. Serious giveaway happening, and it’s just in time for the holidays! Don’t miss it.

In the meantime, love you, mean it. See you on the other side, sweet readers!

PS – I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention today’s guest post on Jessica’s blog. I love her ‘Love You’ series, which features women talking about the things they love about themselves. Total feel good moment!

  4. Victoria! I am so excited for you!!! This is going to be such an incredible weekend for you guys! Congratulations a 1,000 times over. The best advice I could give you is to make a huge effort to never leave Joe’s side. With all of those people you love, it will be hard to stay together, but you will love having your memories of the night together! Enjoy every single second and I can’t wait to hear about every detail! xoxoxoxo

    Happy wedding weekend! Couldn’t be happier for you! Especially coming from a fellow long-haul couple (hubs and I started dating when I was 16) – that moment when they announce you man and wife – it’s totally awesome! Enjoy every second of it!

  36. I hope you have an amazing wedding! My husband (and elementary school BFF!) just bought a house together. Great idea drinking water to avoid the sickness. I always have my clients hydrate and add slices of lemon or orange for extra vitamin C!

    I haven’t lived in SF for 7 years (yikes – I miss it so) but Kokkari is still my favorite. I spent my 23rd birthday there and now can’t wait to visit while I am in town for New Years. Cheers to you and your wedding!
