Hello, my name is Caitlin, and I’m a BBQ addict.

It feels so wrong, but it tastes so right!  For lunch,I made a yummy BBQ Chicken wrap, which contained:

 

  • 1.5 oz. leftover BBQ chicken
  • 1 tablespoon of Anne’s BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 baked sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup sweet corn
  • a little bit of spinach

I used to think you had to cook a sweet potato in the oven and putting it in the microwave it would make it taste funny–but microwaving it 6 minutes results in the perfect baked sweet potato!  Just be sure to stab it a few times with a fork and wrap in a paper towel first.

This combination of flavors was INSANELY delicious!  Oh, I also had some grapes…

And at some point, this Zbar found it’s way into my mouth. Spooky Smores was very yummy…. tastes like a nice dessert!

I spent ALL more addressing wedding invitations.  Every time I finished an invite and added it to this big old stack, I felt pretty accomplished!

Whew! It was quite a chore, but it’s all done now, and I can’t wait to start receiving RSVP cards in the mail (or… waiting 6 weeks and then stalking each of my guests and asking them where the heck the RSVP card is). šŸ™‚

Check out those international stamps! I hope ALL of Future Husband’s family can come from England!

 

Even MORE Wedding Details:  Cake Topper!

 

I finally bite the bullet and purchased a cake topper this morning.  The cake topper was a HUGE point of contention in my mind, as I wanted something cute and not too trendy or plain.  I’ve been looking for a cake topper for WEEKS!

 

This morning, I asked Future Husband if he wanted our monogram or "little people," and he replied "LITTLE PEOPLE, of course!"  So–little people it is!

The inscription reads, "Love bears all things, believes all thing, hopes all things, endures all things…. Love never ends."

 

This cake topper isn’t everyone’s style, but I really like it.  I purchased it online and can’t wait to see it in person. I plan to paint the bride’s hair brown. :)  Future Husband is a bit of a redhead, so it works out perfectly!

 

An online shopping tip:  If you have the option to insert a promotion code for a discount, do a Google search for "Coupon Code" + the name of the website.   You can usually find the secret code and get at least 10% off!

 

Time for a run!

    Aw I love that wedding topper, it’s so sweet! I’m usu. not a fan of “little people” toppers…couldn’t find any I liked for my wedding, so we just used cymbidium orchids to decorate/ top the whole thing. But I really like yours! šŸ™‚

    Hey! I love the cake topper that you have and I was wondering if you know of any distributer that is selling the cake topper that you have pictured. It is discontinued on many sites. Thanks!!

    Hi! I’ve spotted this cake topper online as an image (with NO OTHER information on how to find it!) I typed in the bible verse and “cake topper” into google and found your blog! Can you PLEASE either tell me where you found it or help me search for a link? I’d love you forever!!! <3

    I found this cake topper on eBay!! I searched HIGH and LOW šŸ˜€ I even emailed the designer but found it under an obscure listing on eBay just labeled “Foundations Figurine 2006″ so don’t give up!! I was obsessed! haha

    Did you wind up using it as your cake topper? I read that it’s 9” tall! How did you pull it off?
