A little more than a year ago, my (now) husband popped the question. It was the perfect day. We lived in “ignorant bliss” for about a week or two celebrating… and then reality set in. Wedding planning is not an easy process and if people try to make it sound like butterflies and roses, they are lying to you. But every tear (you will inevitably shed) is worth it. Your wedding day/weekend is the best time of your life.Read More
I kid you not, I wish you could see the dates of when you saved a pin, because maybe like 5 or 6 years ago I saved this one pin of a dress that I liked and the very first dress I tried on looked identical to that pin and that was the exact dress I bought haha! No turmoil or sleepless nights about what to buy, it was actually the easiest part of my entire wedding planning process!Read More
When it was time to start thinking about what the guys would wear for the big day, Luke had a few things: 1. He knew what he wanted to wear and 2. He did not want the guys to spend a lot of money.Read More
Well it's been a few weeks since the big day, but I still find myself reliving the moment as often as possible! Falling asleep looking at pictures every night probably doesn't help, but I'm okay with it. My favorite moment of the day is a tie... I loved our first look and I loved walking down the aisle to Luke. But, I also had so much fun spending the morning with my girls. I honestly felt so relaxed getting to hang out for the day which made getting ready a fun process.Read More
In preparation for my bridal shower, my mom and I were on the hunt for a buffet that we could potentially refinish. Neither of us had ever taken on a project like this before, so we didn't know exactly what we were getting ourselves into... but, as they say, ignorance is bliss.Read More
Oh man, week 3 was a doozie on this basement remodel!
Luke and I spent our entire weekend painting the basement. This also includes the staircase leading down to the basement, which was sheetrocked when we moved in, but needed paint as well.Read More
I can get into a little bit more depth here as it's easier to type everything and I forgot half of what I wanted to say when I was doing the voice over in this video! But, yes, I did record a video of how to achieve this look!Read More
When Luke and I moved into our house, almost a year ago to the day, one of the things we loved was there was a huge basement with tall ceilings. At the time of move in, the basement was already framed out and had insulation, but there was no sheet rock to make the space usable.Read More
You might think it’s impossible, in fact, you might even be rolling your eyes at me right now… but it IS achievable! I know every bride does set out to achieve something amazing, but it’s tough. You’re trying to find something that looks good on everyone, doesn’t cost a fortune and will compliment your dress/wedding décor.Read More
Oh my gosh I can’t believe the honeymoon is already over. I have SO much to share here about so many topics, but I’ll start with our honeymoon for now as I anxiously await photos from our wedding.
I haven’t blogged in so long I feel like I have SO much to say about even our honeymoon, but it probably makes sense to dedicate this solely to a Mexico travel guide and share the other stuff for something different. So, here we go!Read More
