I have heard about soon to be moms “nesting” in the anticipation of their new baby… But what do you call a bride, who nests for her soon to be husband?  Entering the work force in Corporate America, has proven to be a culture shock for me. But despite being exhausted at the end of the week, I somehow spend my weekends preparing for the week ahead. Yes, I, Julie DelGiorno (almost Norine) have started the habit of cooking, and cleaning. 

Starting April 2nd 2012, my groom will move in to my tiny (yet cozy) 720 sqft apartment. And every time I open a closet or a drawer, all I can think is “but where will he  fit?”  Somehow I feel as though, if everything is at least  organized, Matt  and I will have a smooth transition when he moves in. Probably not? Ok yeah, maybe not. 

Well my sweet and thoughtful mommy has bought me the most adorable cookbook.  Every page is adorned with swirly fonts and floral prints, with recipes for cutie tea sandwhiches, and heart shaped chicken pot pie, and pumpkin pie pancakes.

She must have known a precious book would encourage me to be a housewife. Now all I need is to register for a (pink) kitcheaid mixer ….

Thrifty Bride

 The Dallas Flea rocked my world this weekend. I found a few props for the wedding, but more importantly I found booth after booth of adorable goods home-made from talented and creative and even more adorable people. 

Now I need to figure out what my talent is, and set up (etsy) shop!

Ok, I know just a few posts ago I said I wanted a scrap book-esque guest book.
THAT was before I saw this! Bleu De Toi has the most adorable custom thumb print guest books … And now, my life decisions got that much more difficult!

All of the major  items are accounted for and booked such as
flowers, photographer, videographer, venue (duh) band, and the save-the-dates just went out! So now I am looking into all the little details that will make this wedding reflect my personality.. I say my, because in reality, matt has nothing to do with this planning process… It’s better for our relationship that way!
Anyway, the latest Martha Stewart Weddings has the CUTEST idea for a guest book. Guest books can be so cheesey (this I have come to realize from going to  weddings) and I love the scrap book feel this has. Ok, and truthfully, I am excited for an excuse to use this ridiculously adorable tape - when else would you use it??
