I'm Baaaack!

Do you remember me?! haha. I know, I know...if you didn't know any better you'd probably think I was abducted by aliens =) It's been *THAT* long. I'll admit it, I'm a terrible blogger (lately)!

I've been back since Tuesday and have been playing catch up ever since! Our trip was fabulous! BF and I had such a wonderful time! Relaxing, eating great food (I love trying out new restaurants), shopping, and playing at the beach!! Did I mention I'm having with drawls? So much so, that when we came home--I booked a flight out to LA! Yup, Bf and I are headed to Laguna Beach in 2 weeks! I can't wait! It's always nice to have something fun to look forward to =) We love staying in Laguna--its pretty close to being halfway between LA and San Diego, so we'll get to spend time in both cities! I've been frequenting and the weather has been perfect down there!! I hope it stays that way!

In other news....

One of my friends from college "E" is getting married this summer!! July 11th is the date she has picked for her special day!! (this seems to be such a popular date--2 other friends' weddings are on this very same day). So Anyways..."E" has asked me to be one of her bridesmaids!! How exciting is that?! I'm so honored and it will be so much fun! Summer is the best time of year!

My dearest bloggers... I do have one request regarding this whole bridesmaid thing...I'd love to seek the opionion of your inner fashionista! Below is a picture of the dress "E" has chosen for her bridesmaids.

This is the exact dress--but the color will be watermelon.
Its hard to see in the picture but there is a slight metalic beading detail across the chest.

Here is a good example of the color.

Though we will all be wearing the same dress, we have our own choice on shoes. The wedding will be outdoors so I'm really looking to go with flat. I'd consider a wedge but I'm on the tall side compared to the rest of the bridesmaids--I'd prefer to not stand out as the eight foot giant =) So if you have ANY suggestions on a flat shoe/sandal that you think would look great with this dress throw it my way! I'd appreciate it tons!! I'm thinking something silver? Maybe you have a better idea? Anything helps! And moderately priced as well. Can't wait to see your ideas!

Also, don't forget to check out my sidebar! There are some fabulous giveaways going on!

Oh. And if you have any favorite spots to go to in LA-Laguna-San Diego or anywhere in between, I'd be interested in that too =) We've been there once a year for the past 3 years so we have our own favorites--but would definitely welcome any suggestions! As far as tasty treats go, I can't wait to hit up Pinkberry, Sprinkles, and In and Out (not the classiest joint...but so good). Mmmm I can taste it already =)
