Spanx for Men....

Did you know this existed? I was searching for a tie for Blake for the wedding when I ran across this creation.

Only 12 more days until our wedding, and we're both ready for this busy engagement season to be behind us and to be married (and on the beach in Dominican Republic). It's been a stressful season but such constant confirmation to me that I am incredibly blessed to be marrying Blake. The closest thing we've had to an argument was a one hour disagreement about whether or not I'd walk down the aisle, which given all of the decisions and whatnot we've had to handle is fantastic.

So two more cool things.....

(1) Our photographer contacted me. Yes, I didn't have to call or look for a photographer. Amy Beth emailed me to see if she could be of help! She's been reading my blog for over a year and photographs as a side job. She's definitely talented, and from reading her blog, I can tell she's a beautiful person. I'll meet her this week for the first time in person :) Gotta love the blogosphere.

(2) Speaking of the blogosphere, I helped host a baby shower last Saturday when one of the guests approached me and said I looked familiar....because she reads my blog! Ha. She doesn't blog but recognized me from photos. Small world.

I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!

p.s. I'm grateful for the rest I've gotten this weekend and for unexpected time with my friend Chasie.

I am SO excited for you :D Every time I read your blog it reminds me of when I married my hubby last December and I just beam :D

Me and my husband were the same: we had no arguments AT ALL :)

A. I have no idea what spanx are. And I'm a little scared to google it :)

B. I've had a couple of my friends' girlfriends mention my blog upon meeting them. I just wonder how that ever comes up in conversation. "Oh, and my friend Bone, he has a blog, and sometimes he blogs about me."

Um, what are spanx for men supposed to do exactly? If they are anything like the ones I have I believe they'd be extremely uncomfortable for men...

And I'm very thankful for our time together too. I feel special to get A1 alone time. Love you.

Chasie: It's an undershirt...that supposedly flattens his stomach and works all sort of magic....
