8 months to go......

So this weekend, I decided (lol) that we needed to celebrate. On Saturday, it was 8 months until our wedding date. Not often will the date (27th) fall on a Saturday! Kevin wasn't amused but he obliged me. I even put on my cute new Target dress!

We spent the day driving to IKEA & then Trader Joe's in Illinois. We found a really neat sink/storage area that will go in the basement kitchen/bar area. Then loaded up on some faves at TJ's.

Then gussied up & headed to New Buffalo, Michigan to have dinner at the Four Winds Casino. We tried to eat at the buffet when they first opened but there was a 2 hour wait to even get in line to wait! So this time was more successful. They have a weekend seafood bar that just blew me away. You name it & you could find it. That along with additional stations that included mexican, chinese (with fresh sushi), BBQ, fresh meats, fried stuff (like chicken fried steak), and the best dessert bar EVER! Tons of fresh mini-tarts (the lemon was like buttah!), fresh made ice creams & gelatos, etc, etc, etc. So friggin yum!

The casino was so packed though so we didnt end up playing anything there & left to head to the Blue Chip Casino which is our usual stomping grounds. We had played a bit, had a beer (Shock Top..yummy!) & headed home late. It was a fun night!

Oh I should add that before heading out at all, we went to Ogden Gardens to take a few pictures. We wanted to add a picture of us to our "Save the Dates" but all we have of our "nice dressy pics" are all at nighttime & just don't work. So off to the park we went! We got a few nice ones & decided on this one (it's the one I posted on Facebook.)

I totally love the layout the printer did for our Save the Date cards. I cannot wait to hear from our family when they receive them!!!!!

Overall, a nice weekend. I went to church yesterday, had brunch with family, ran errands & sacked out a bit on the couch. I did make us a nice steak fajita dinner though :)

Hope your week is off to a great start!
