This weekend I finally had my stagette! You might think “Wait a minute, she’s already married!” It’s true, I’ve been married for two months now. Long story short, the first stagette which was scheduled for August 4 was cancelled due to a round of kidney stones so we had to postpone it (sad face). Fast forward to this past Saturday, and I realized how lucky I am (again) to have picked the particular ladies that I did to be in my bridal party.
J came to pick me up around 2pm, and then we were off to meet A & H at West Edmonton Mall. We proceeded into Anthropologie (swoon), where I was informed that a Personal Stylist had filled a large change room full of hand picked outfits for me to try on! We were ushered to the room and then J proceeded to pull champagne and flutes out of a bag, and H made some cupcakes magically appear! I was given a gift card to spend on whatever my heart desired. Since Anthro is usually (way) out of my budget, this was a most exciting and memorable gift, as the only purchases I’ve made in this store up until this point have been either from the sale racks or home goods section. I came home with two dresses and two necklaces, and I’m sure they’ll become cherished pieces as I love them to bits already!
The fun continued at Eveline Charles where I was able to cross off half of an item from my 30 before 30 list. That’s right, I enjoyed my first official manicure! J was excited because the appointment had been made long before the 30 before 30 list came to be, so it was perfect. I chose Coral Reef to match my new dress, and off we went for a night of fun!
Thank you to my lovely ladies for being what I’ve deemed “heart friends” – you’ll be forever near and dear to my heart and I love you!
