So many new things!

Writing today's blog is a little bittersweet for me. I'm SO excited because my wedding shower invitations were delivered this weekend and they're so cute! Exactly what I would have wanted for a Bridal Shower Tea. My custom made orange blossom hair comb also arrived this week and it's just as gorgeous as I had hoped. I must give props to Maria at St. Jude's Creations for making this hair comb. If you're looking for anything involving hand-made flowers, Maria is your girl. You can check her out at She also sells her creations on

In the midst of my excitement, I'm feeling a little bummed because Landry isn't here to share all of these little things with me. Not that I really think he'd be jumping for joy over a hair comb or an invitation, but it would be nice to show him these things in person. Instead, I'm sharing them via video chat on Skype while he's in China. He's there playing basketball and it's an amazing opportunity for him, but he was supposed to be home on June 3rd. Then they were playing so well, their Chinese hosts decided to extend the trip until June 15th. Just today I found out that they wanted him to stay until July 20th. He told them it wasn't a possibility, but we talked about it and decided he should take as much of the opportunity as he can, so now he won't be home until the end of June. It's been a rough three weeks without him so far and I'm really not looking forward to another three, but I realize that this is where he needs to be. And there's nothing immediate about our wedding that he needs to be here for. We'll send out the invites the first week in July and reschedule meetings with our cake baker and DJ. I just can't wait to get a confirmation of his travel dates so that we know for sure exactly when he'll be home.

In the meantime I'm looking forward to the next exciting milestone, my first dress fitting! Probably not for another week or two, but we'll see what develops that's exciting to talk about in the meantime.


  1. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. The day that Landry returns and can just hug you will be a moment you'll never forget. And just think, soon, you will both be able to hold one another for as long as you'd like. Your wedding is just a day, but marriage lasts forever. Stay positive Suzen! Everything looks beautiful, just like your love. And it will all come together without a hitch.

    Miss ya much,

  2. I am so excited for you Suzen! We got our shower invitation yesterday and it was one of the highlights of my weekend! Landry will be home soon and he'll be just as excited for you! Kristi is thrilled! I got a hat for the shower too!! Soo pysched! Your fabulous diva, enjoy every minute of it!

    Love ya!
