Can't Get Enough

Lately I cannot get enough of online browsing for clothing. This should come as no surprise as I have mentioned before my love for shopping. Anytime an event or trip is planned, my first thought is "what will I wear".

Obviously I will need tons of new clothing for wedding related events in the near future. Bridal showers, bachelorette parties, bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner, brunch, honeymoon. That alone is enough to make me go broke.
But before all that wonderfulness takes place, I have a trip to Montana that I need to plan for. The peeps out in Montana are not too much into fashion and we are doing several outdoors activities (horseback riding, Yellowstone) that I need proper attire for. I don't even know what to wear to go horseback riding! I at least know I need to wear pants. But I don't want to wear jeans. I also don't want to wear jeans to Yellowstone. So agenda item #1 on the list is to find some alternative to jeans. I have plenty of shirts I can wear. A basic v-neck is always ready to go in my closet. Kyle and I both need new tennis shoes (does anyone else call them that?) for the trip. I may try to hit up Marshall's this weekend and see if I strike gold there. Old Navy had some really cute causal pants online but I didn't buy them in time and now they are out of stock.

And we need to pick out a first birthday present for Henry. I can't wait to see that little guy.
Aaaaannnnnd we are taking some engagement photos out there and we will need outfits for that.

Last weekend I went to Edmond to watch the last soccer games and then to babysit while B&E went to a birthday party. I love getting to spend one-on-one time with the girls. Now that Lauren is 8 years old, we engage in almost adult conversation and I am still adjusting to that. I miss her being my little doll baby. Lauren and I spent some time on the internet looking for flower girl dresses. She is defintely related to me because a) she wanted to do this almost immediately after her parents left and b) she has very specific ideas of what she wants to wear.

Jordyn changed into a dress and wanted to take pictures. Something I am always game for. Allison was entertaining herself on the Wii and then we ordered pizza and watched Mr. Popper's Penguins.

Our Memorial Day has become jam-packed. We had no plans 2 weeks ago, and now we haven't something planned every day of the weekend. Tonight we are eating dinner in and watching a movie in preparation of the busy weekend.

Beach, Food, Hotel, Nightlife

These are all of the things I am researching for our honeymoon. Here are the top destinations so far:

  • Belize
  • Hawaii
  • Turks and Caicos
  • Costa Rica
Kyle and I talked about the things we wanted in our honeymoon.

Kyle wants: waves and good food
Heather wants: nice beach, good food, access to activities

Here is my theory. I can spend $500 bucks for a nice little beach getaway to Cancun anytime. I want to go big on my honeymoon. I want to see stuff and experience things. Greece was my #1 choice but their seasons are about like ours and the beaches would be closed in October. So we started to focus more on tropical place.

This Belize resort is calling my name

I have priced trips to each location and Hawaii seems to be the most expensive. And there are several islands so we have to read up on each and choose which one is best for us. 

There are hundreds of places to stay in Hawaii. Narrowing it down to an island is the main concern. 
I like the idea of Costa Rica but there rainy season in exactly when we would be there. 
So the honeymoon search continues....

Now onto food. Make this chicken and you will not be disappointed. 

So good and so easy to make.

Happy Birthday, Jordyn

Today our smallest Heathcock munchkin turns 3 years old! She has been such a joy to all of us and can entertain a room with her laugh and her silly antics. Happy birthday, sweet girl! We will party tomorrow in your honor.
