Happy Hump Day, everyone! If you live under a rock and haven’t seen this video yet, go do it now. You can thank me later. 

Okay now that we are all in a good mood because of our friend the camel, lets talk about my photo dump for the day! I figured this was a fun way for you, the amazing people who read my blog, to see the pictures i’ve taken for the week! (Plus or minus the 29582 selfies I take) 
If you want to follow along, check back every wednesday! Trust me, you’ll want to stay. πŸ˜‰

1. I’ve really tried to watch what i’ve been eating lately due to the fact that I WILL NOT fit into my wedding dress if I don’t start. I don’t mean that negatively, i’m just stating facts. And lets be honest, this Lean Cuisine was DELICIOUS. I was actually surprised! 

2. You know what I love about our relationship? Knowing we are having all of our “last first times” with each other! Sunday was one of those days for us and we were REALLY excited about what we did! That exciting news will be put into another post once everything plays out. (Don’t cha want to REALLY stick around now?!)

3. The other night we sat on my back patio, grilled, and watched the storm roll in! Oh and enjoyed an adult beverage. I know you can’t tell from the picture, but the sky was beyond dark. Fun fact? Rainy, stormy, cold weather is my FAVORITE kind of weather. 

4. Sometimes at work, we get broken pie shells. #pastrychefproblems

Do you have any diet plans you stick to or “healthy” meals you like?

Sometimes we’re really cute

I think my favorite part about “wedding planning” was taking our ‘Save the Date’ pictures! It truly reminded me how much I just LOVE M. We can be silly, and serious, and just be….in love! I kept looking at him and saying “I have no idea what i’m doing” and we would just laugh. I love that about him. I love that I don’t have to pretend to know what i’m doing, or pretend like i’m good at things. 
I was so excited to finally meet our photographer, who happens to be his cousin. Along with excited, I was a tad nervous. When he told me he “knew someone who took pictures” I was expecting someone who just owned a camera and took pictures for fun. Luckily, our photographer is AMAZING! She gave us direction and made us feel comfortable, which I loved and ultimately needed. This photo shoot reassured me that the photos of our wedding will be BEAUTIFUL! 
I am so in love with these pictures! 

(Remember this whole ‘I don’t know what i’m doing’ thing?!)

Sometimes we’re really cute. Wouldn’t you agree?! πŸ˜‰

Oh ya, I have a wedding to plan!

While i’ve been stalking pinterest religiously planning my wedding, i’ve had so many ideas coming and going through my head! 
The wedding planning process has gone a little something like this…

As soon as I got engaged I went out and bought every wedding magazine in site. Soon after, I bought a strawberry shake from Sonic and proceeded to lounge by my pool and day dream about thousand dollar weddings I cant afford. Hey, a girl can dream! 
Also, I did a very “bride” thing and ran to the nearest bridal show I could find. Who doesn’t love going to look at 509390 different cakes, caterers, floral arrangements, so forth and so on?!

While at this bridal show I came across one venue that I knew my fiancΓ© would LOVE. I myself was set on a different one (from pictures), but I knew he would love this one. I went and looked at the one I loved and although it was beautiful, I felt like the other place might be it. We went and toured the venue I knew M would like and I was right, he loved it. (1 POINT BRIDE) We called the next day to tell the events coordinator we loved it and wanted to book. Soon following, we signed our lives away. πŸ˜‰ 

I’ve spent countless hours on Pinterest trying to find things I love. I’ve even attempted a few DIY projects. Lets just say i’m NOT the crafty one out of the group, but hey, i’m trying! 

We also had our “Save the Date” photos done and I could not have been more happy with the way they turned out! I had so much fun shooting them and it just reassures me that I am truly marrying my best friend! 
Wedding planning has been an adventure for me so far. Its a lot different than just pinning things I like on pinterest. Can you believe this stuff actually costs MONEY?! Okay, kidding, but still. Its been a lot of fun so far! We still have a LOT of things to figure out, but for right now, I feel as if i’m staying on track! 
6 more months until this handsome man gets to be my husband!
