I’ll be honest I’m a hormonal mess right now. Pms on top of wedding nerves means that there is an 80% chance Dino Boy comes home to me crying and has to figure out if these are happy or sad tears. The other day I was a wreck because of quite possible the cutest moment. I logged into that fun wedding spreadsheet I blogged about last week and saw one of the best aha moments I’ve ever had looking at an excel spreadsheet. On the relationship box my favorite boy put in our spot “soon to be family” You would think that I just finished the end of The Notebook at that moment. After finally getting my breath back and fixing my permanent raccoon eyes ( I swear even waterproof mascara isn’t helping me right now!) I was once again reminded the reason of all of this craziness. I’m becoming a family. I’m going to join another mini unit, one to call my own. There is a reason this moment s so emotionally charged. You are becoming one, one mini little family. One man that will be in my life forever. If that doesn’t make you cry happy tears I don’t know what will.
Because I’m attending the BlogHer conference this weekends posts are a little mixed up. Today’s Sipping Saturday has turned into Thirsty Thursday. Try this delicious cocktail and let me know what you think!
Barcadi Razz was a drink that I problem had a million times when I turned 21 and was done with after a couple awful mornings but I found this recipe on Barcadi’s website and I have to say it’s making me get right back into this delicious drink!
Mix 1 1/2 ounce Barcadi Razz with 3 ounces soda water and a lime wedge
I’m a mess when it comes to organizing for the wedding so when invitations went out I knew I needed to create a system for the reply cards. Dino Boy created this amazing spreadsheet to keep everything organized! It has been a life saver! Did you have a system that worked for you?

I’ve spent most of the day on the living room couch recovering from body battling me. It’s easy to lay in bed and watch 5 episodes of Sex and the City. (oh wait, that is how I spent the first couple hours of waking up!) Now I want to be productive and get things done! Writing a list always gets me out of that funk so here it is, my goals for the week!
1. Actually do laundry and hang up all of my clothes. My closet is starting to look just like a giant pile!
2. Get the wedding response card spreadsheet done! The reply cards are coming in!
3. Get my blog in order. It’s been kind of a wreck lately with all the wedding craziness but I’m determined to get into a groove again.
4. Pack for BlogHer!!!! You guys I’m so excited for this conference! Are any of you ladies going?
What are your goals for the week?
Today I’m sharing the wonderful cocktail we drank at my bridal shower!
