Sunday Fun-day

I bought a wedding dress today.  This will be my third,  sigh.   I’ve returned one and I’m in the process of returning the other two.  It’s been stressful for me to find something that I’m supposed to love, love, love so much.

I settled on a really simple sweetheart neck line chiffon gown from BCBG that will float in the breeze on the beach.  Once I lose 10 lbs I will really, really like it.   But truthfully, I think I’m just not one of those “Say yes to the dress” chicks.   Which is weird because I love clothes and have since I was 4 years old.

Anyway . . . after my stressful shopping trip I tried to make them  again (French Macrons).  I could stare at fluffy, pink  meringue all day.  I have a weird obsession with these little French cookies.

Here is me checking the the kitchen timer (a gazillion times) because I was afraid of over whipping the egg whites again, which would result in this.

You will have to come back tomorrow to see if they made it out of the oven alive this time.

Honey napped ALL DAY.  She was tired from doggie daycare and happy.  Check her out on the pillow and everything. She didn’t even look up when I took her photo.

. . . 5 more days until the weekend.

    Lol I see nail polish on your kitchen counter. Not where you would expect it, haha.

    The meringue looks… very edible. I watermouth at the sight of it.

    Can’t wait to see how the cookies turn out!

    Honey looks about the same size as my 11-month old lab, Ryder.

    I wonder if I’ll be a ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ type of girl. I don’t think so! You’re not alone.

    I found my dress right away, but know lots of people who had trouble! I hope you love the one you have settled on! 🙂

    Ugh, do not remind me of dress shopping. I hated it so freaking much. I do wish I would had spent more time on it because I feel like I settled on something I thought was good enough and looking back I could have done much better. Just make sure you are happy with it because you don’t want to look back and not be pleased with what you chose.

    Dying to see how these turned out! I’m still too chicken to try… and your puppy is just freakin’ adorable!
