Days 2 & 3: Jocie's Wedding Week!

Hiiiiiedddddy Ho!

Days 2 & 3 (& this post..) were not too exciting (I mean, all my other blog posts are just nothing short of riveting right? ;)

First, my Cousin Olivia (who was also one of Jocelyn's Bridesmaids) from Pennsylvania and I did some shopping/errand running.

We started off downtown and Livi got a shirt to wear at Forever 21 and then we headed off to the Wedding Venue for tasks and Crate & Barrel to get the Bride/Groom a gift. We also had to stock up on Dior Mascara for the big day so we were all over town.

{7 years apart and 3,000 miles apart- but we showed up together that day in very similar outfits. I love my Cousin.}

After that it was another night of chatting and hanging out at my Dad's house with the family.

Above: Olivia, her Mom/My Aunt Barbara & Me before Dinner.

But really the star of the night was little Miss Charlotte (above). Charlotte is my Cousin's Daughter so I guess that makes her my 2nd cousin. She is just sweet as can be.

Charlotte was born extremely premature and they were really worried about her for a long time as she was in the NICU. She seems to be thriving now and is one of the funniest babies. I simply couldn't get enough of her.

Above: Me and Charlotte. What a sweetheart!

After Charlotte was finally able to hide from me and hope that I didn't hold her again... I did some Bridal tasks with Jocie around the house.

And at the end of a long day and getting closer and closer to the wedding day... Jocie and 2 of her Bridesmaids had a little photo shoot and got quite tired of pictures throughout. Hence the weird poses.

Day 4 tomorrow!

(Her wedding is Day 5)

PPS- I'm obsessed with Teal these days. I can't wait to show you all how I'm decorating my new apartment with the colors! Yay!

I love that kind of blue on you... it brightens you up beautifully.

Ms Charlotte is adorable... so fun to have a little princess in the house... a welcome break from all the stress and hassles of the preparations.

Have a great day! xoxo

PS... And why do you have to stock up on Dior mascara? hahaha!

So I love the fact that you stock up on Dior Mascara. Whenever I really love a product I tend to buy tons of it for the sheer fact that I'm horrified that they'll stop making it or some similar horrible fate!

Charlotte is adorable - her face is so full of expression; I LOVE her! :)

It is so great to get insights into the days before the wedding. and your sisters purple top matches perfectly with you (really like these two colours together).
