Wedding Update:: Part III

Hi there! It's been a while, but I wanted to pop back in to share some wedding updates. So here we go:

We met with the florist and I have picked out all the flowers for the wedding! We decided to only get real flowers for the wedding party and then my mom is going to make our center pieces and decor on her own. Hopefully we can save a little money this way. Here's my inspiration picture!

Our bridesmaid dresses came in and I am in LOVE with them! I was slightly nervous about the color since I only saw

Sister Trip to San Francisco

Last week my sister and I packed up and headed to San Francisco for our second sister trip. About a year and a half ago, we went to Washington D.C. together and explored the city and visited with our cousin. We had such a great time together that we vowed to go on sister trips as often as we could. Dani has always wanted to visit Alcatraz, so we decided San Francisco was the perfect destination for us to continue the tradition. We were only

May Lineup

  • VIP Day 
    • My nephew got to pick one person to bring to his VIP day at school, and he picked me! Of course, I couldn't say no to that so I took the day off work to spend with him. We'll get to have breakfast at his school and do some fun crafts together. I'm really looking forward to it!
  • Engaged Encounter
    • This is one of the final tasks Michael and I have to complete before getting married in the Catholic Church. We will be spending a weekend with other couples who are also preparing to get married in the Catholic faith in hopes of strengthening our relationship and core values. While I'm not necessarily looking forward to an entire weekend of presentations, I know it will be a good experience for us in the end. 
  • Eric Church
    • A couple girlfriends and I will be heading to see Eric Church in St. Louis and I am so excited! Not only do I love a good country concert, but I am also really looking forward to seeing Eric live for the first time. I've heard he's one hell of a performer!
  • Mother's Day
    • I hope to head to my hometown to spend Mother's Day with my momma and sister. I can't get enough family time these days!

April Lineup

A little late here, but April is shaping up to be a pretty awesome month! Here's what I've been up to and a peek at my upcoming weeks:
  • #MuddMadness 
    • As I mentioned last week, one of my best gal pals got married on April Fool's Day and it was so perfect! We had the best time. You can see some pictures and read more about it here
  • Easter
    • Michael and I plan to head to my parent's house this Saturday to spend the day with them and my sister, brother-in-law, and nephews. The weather is looking beautiful, so I hope we get to do lots of Easter egg hunting with my nephews. Sunday, we plan to spend the day with Michael's family. Doesn't get much better than a weekend full of family!
  • San Francisco
    • My sister and I will be heading to San Francisco later this month for our 2nd Sister's Trip! Back in late 2015, we took our first sister's trip to Washington D.C. and had so much fun that we decided to make it a tradition! Visiting Alcatraz has always been on my sister's bucket list, so we decided San Francisco would be the perfect place to visit next. I can't wait for some quality sister time!

I booked our honeymoon this past weekend!! In exactly SIX months, I get to marry my very best friend! I seriously cannot wait for October to get here. Shortly after, we will be heading to Negril, Jamaica for our honeymoon!

We decided to make it more of a "friendsmoon" and invite two of our best couple friends to come along with us. It took me a little while to come around on this idea, but now that I have, I can hardly contain my excitement! Michael and I have done the solo beach trip before, but haven't had the opportunity to go on an all-inclusive group trip with our best friends. There isn't anyone better to help us celebrate and I'm sure it will be an epic trip!

Is it October yet?!

Weekend Recap:: Save Our Date

We mailed the Save our Dates this weekend! Since Michael was in Las Vegas last weekend, Mom came up to stay with me on Saturday and we had a productive and fun couple of days! We spent Saturday afternoon stuffing and addressing envelopes and were able to get all but maybe 5-10 of the Save our Dates in the mail. We are a bit

Cake Inspiration

Instead of having one big cake for our wedding, we have decided on several small cakes with different styles and sizes of cake stands. I recently purchased some stands from the Magnolia Homes line that I absolutely LOVE and think will make a good addition to our collection. Here are a few inspiration pictures of the look we are going for (only cakes though, no cupcakes, cookies, etc.):
