On Friday I told you all I was going to try fake lashes.  That didn't happen, instead Tara had an appointment for me to get my brows done.  I know, I know, I'm 30 years old and had never had this done.  I'm terrible.

But now I can say I've done it!

Mother says no fake lashes for the wedding.  Kevin says no fake lashes for the wedding.  I am meeting my makeup gal on Friday for my trial.  Should be interesting!

Friday night - frozen pizzas on paper plates at our house.  Kevin's parents, brother and niece came over.

Saturday morning - Mills had his final sign off from the Vet and is no longer a cone head.  I wanted to make Saturday about him since he had been miserable for 10 days.  He got a bath, brushed and walked.  He loved every second of it.  After Kevin going into the office for a couple of hours, he came home and made a fire and we just hung out.  We headed on down to the fish camp for dinner.  Kevin and I were going to go "out out" but last minute decided to be low key.  

Sunday - we went to brunch at Toast - ah-mazing.  It was our first time and we aren't sure why after that breakfast!  We ran errands to Jos A Bank for Kevin to get fitted for his tux and to Staples for his office stuff.  I made a couple dips for our dinner and to watch the Superbowl.  We were invited to 3 different parties but decided to just stay home.  I was able to get a bunch of wedding stuff done (I counted, I've written 30+ notes just to give gifts to others between now and wedding day!).   It's like Christmas for me - I LOVE giving gifts!

Hope everyone enjoyed watching the Ravens win!  I will admit, I was not awake after midway through the 3rd quarter.  Oh well!

Girl ... I was nodding off towards the end, too! One of the perks of living on the West coast, I guess! I went back to bed and told Ian to just come back later and tell me who won. Had the Panthers been playing, I would have stayed up.

No shocker here but I say GO FOR IT with the false lashes. It's your wedding day, and they help your eyes to pop. I would highly suggest doing the individual lashes though rather than the strips for a more natural look. Hey, just my two cents :) I'm always a fan of big glamorous lashes though!

I've never had my brows done either, so you aren't alone! I love Toast too!!

I've done fake lashes before and they look better than you think. They look natural and full - you won't come out looking like a Kardashian with tarantula eyes! I say give'em a try.

I never did fake lashes until the day of my wedding! They looked great, stayed for the whole day, and made my eyes pop without extra makeup. Do a trial to see what you think, but they can look very natural.
