Happy Birthday Aileen!

Last night I was out celebrating Aileen’s Birthday dinner!


Some of Aileen’s family and friends headed out for a fabulous dinner together at Auspicious in Ardmore. It’s a cure little BYO Chinese Restaurant right off the Main Line.


It was a celebration so lots of sparkling wine was poured! It might be my new favorite adult beverage – I love the bubbles and the light sweetness! Yum!


We started off with a few appetizers for the table – Thai lettuce wraps (one chicken and one veggie) and some edamame (which I loooove!)


For dinner everyone got a different dish to share with the table. I was leaning towards my usual favorite but then I decided to do something different – I got the Create Your Own Stir Fry which I added lots of veggies and a coconut curry sauce because I love a little kick of spice to my meals!



Everyone got something different – we had 6 different entrees to choose from.


I had a little bit of everything and then went back for more.


Aileen’s brother, Sam ordered the whole Peking duck, which I had never seen before. It looked pretty cool, but I wasn’t feeling adventurous enough to try it out for myself.


And obviously no Chinese dinner is complete without a fortune cookie.

And some orange slices! Yum!


It was a fabulous evening filled with lots of laughs.



After dinner we headed back to the house for some birthday cake!

Make a wish Aileen!


It was a carrot cake birthday cake! Yummers!


Not the best way to implement Operation: Hot Bride, but I did what I had to do for Aileen’s Birthday! 🙂


When you go out to dinner for a birthday celebration feast – what is your cuisine of choice? I enjoy Thai food and sushi! Two of my favorites!

Sharing Our Save The Date’s

3 months until our wedding date!

Since today is a momentous occasion in my little world, I wanted to share with you how fiancé and I sent out our STD’s (also known as Save the Date’s…I find it crazy hilarious to call them STD’s…haha!)

I knew I wanted to do something fun for our STD’s – I didn’t want to send a card or something that would get lost in the shuffle of everyone’s crazy lives. I always knew I wanted to do a magnet because magnets are awesome!

Besides, who doesn’t love something pretty on their refrigerator?


I had so much fun creating these magnets. I love the photo strip effect and how we were able to use 3 consecutive pictures from our engagement shoot.


It was also a cool way to give our guests a little sneak peak of the wedding color scheme.


I think it was a really fun way to let our guests know ahead of time the date of our wedding! Hopefully it got them excited for the fun day ahead!


Along with the announcement of the wedding date, the STD also included a link to our wedding website. Check it out if you like! 🙂


Here are some close up’s of the pictures we used from our engagement session. Have I told you lately that I heart April Ziegler??

This twirl picture might be my favorite picture of all time. It was taken perfectly in one shot! Loooove!

What do you think of our Save the Date’s? Did you or will you send out something fun for your STD’s?

Side Note: Our STD gives a little sneak peak of something we have planned for the wedding – any guesses?
