Weekend Recap

This past weekend, I went down to Greenville to spend some quality time with David :) I got there Friday night and we could not find anything for dinner to save our life! We eventually went to Trader Joe's, got some wine, chips, salsa, hummus, and a frozen chicken meal. We turned on some Zac Brown pandora and hooked it up to the surround sound and had a fabulous time singing and fixing dinner together. It was the best night :)

Satuday, David and I went to the gym and I ran 3 miles without stopping!! (Proud of myself!) We also went to Lowe's and Target to start picking out stuff for our registry :) I always really enjoy getting to spend time with my boy and this weekend was no exception.

Saturday night, we went downtown with my MOH and her boyfriend. It was so nice to catch up with my bestest! We went to a place called Takosushi which was delicious! We caught up on a lot of what has been going on and reminisced about the past as well :)
We went to High Cotton for drinks but wanted to have a little more fun so we went to a club down the street and partied well into the morning. It was a much needed night out with great friends! I think I can get through the rest of the semester now, haha ;)

I hope everyone else had a great weekend!

Wedding Wednesday...Finally!

Finally, an update! I'm so sorry I haven't been around lately. It seems like it's all I can do to just get through a week of nursing school these days! They seem to just keep piling on the work...there's a light at the end of the tunnel (May 7th to be exact...) but it's a very, very small light right now :) And my schedule is only going to get worse starting in March! Oh well, if I make it through this semester, I can make it through anything :)

First of all, Ashley's sweet baby is adorable. He may be the cutest baby on the planet right now. I can't wait to meet him:)

Second, there have been a few new things wedding-wise!

  • The bridesmaid's have ordered their dresses! We ended up going with the purple ones from Nordstrom's. I love them. And as far as I know (and have been told) the bridesmaid's love them too! I'm happy to hear that because I don't want them to be wearing something they don't like!
  • I'm still on the look out for some shoes for the bridesmaids. I'm still thinking cream but I just have not had time to look!
  • I found my shoes! They are satin white right now...but soon they'll be purple ;) And I'll show you a picture of them once they are complete!
  • I've met with a florist! I really liked her and she had some great ideas. Apparently everything is blooming in September and we are going to have some bright colors intertwined :) My grandmother and I are meeting with another florist on Friday just to compare, so hopefully we'll know what we're dealing with soon.
  • The most exciting thing that's happened recently is that David and I had our engagement pictures done on Sunday!! We had so. much. fun. We had them taken at Clemson. Some on the football field (for all of you Tigers out there, we got to touch the rock and run down the hill! It was pretty cool!), the soccer field (David's home turf), and in the botanical garden. The guys were hoping to to get them back to us within two weeks!! As soon as I get some pictures, I'll put some up.....I'm hoping they are good :)
  • Lastly...I'm on the schedule next Wednesday to get my dress altered! I already have my dress, I'm going to have a completely full schedule until the middle of I wanted to go ahead and get on top of it. I have to admit, I'm enjoying the fact that I'm going to get to wear my dress again so soon ;)
PS- if any of you watch Glee...the Justin Bieber episode is cracking me up... (yeahhh....I'm a week behind on my shows...)...although I really liked watching Puck sing "Fat Bottom Girls" in whatever episode that was. He is just so cute!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! I'm heading to spend time with David on Friday, maybe I'll have something worthy of a blog post sooner than a month :)

Two quick things! And I promise I'm updating the wedding planning tomorrow :) Last week was crazzyyyy and I can't believe I survived it, ha!

1. I joined twitter! If you have twitter, please come follow me! I'd love to follow you, too! :)


2. One of my oldest friends, Ashley (we've known each other since we were 2!) had her sweet baby BOY tonight! Happy Birthday, little David! If you think about it, send up a prayer for them!

See you all tomorrow!

Wedding Wednesday

I haven't forgotten about the wedding updates, but I'm so exhausted tonight that I'm going to have to update later. It will most likely be Friday before I get to it! I worked last night and I work again tomorrow night...after spending the whole day at class. So, I'm pretty busy and I'm headed to bed now. Hope you guys have an enjoyable rest of the week :)

Worst Blogger Award!

I nominate myself for the worst blogger award! ;) I'ts so hard to find time to blog when I'm in nursing school. I feel so guilty when I take the time to do anything other than nursing related...isn't that so bad? But I'm doing my tutoring hours today (well, I did some and no one else is signed up after...yay!) so instead of doing work I thought I'd update :)

This weekend David came up! I haven't seen him in 3 weeks so it was nice to get to hang out. I had to work Friday night so David spend the evening with Marley and Macy. (I couldn't bear to think about Marley staying all by himself at night! My mom went out of town so if David hadn't come up, poor Marley would have been all alone!)

Saturday, David and I went to dinner with our friends Vannessa and Dave, and Leslie and Hugh. We went to Cantina Fifteen Eleven. It was a yummy mexican place and we enjoyed the food, but our waitress was terrible! Oh well--good food and good friends makes for a great night in my book!

Also, some of my blog readers were wondering what kind of dog Marley is! I always enjoy bragging about my sweet pup so now is the perfect opportunity! Marley is a yorkipoo. (I know y'all are smart but just in case, he's half yorkshire terrier, half miniature poodle!) He's obviously got more yorkie in him than poodle, but he's got enough poodle that he doesn't shed--awesome! He's so smart...and oh my gosh, such a cutie! He loves to cut his eyes at you when he's playing so he looks like he's mad but his little nub just wags and wags!

He also loves to cuddle. He sleeps under the covers and really likes his space, but some part of him always has to be touching me. If he can't feel me during the night, he stretches his little legs out to touch my leg just to make sure I'm still there-- 100% love :)

He also thinks he's a big dog. Macy (my mom's 80 lb. golden retriever) just cowers when Marley starts getting on to her about something :) It's pretty cute! And he loves to "protect" me from all the boogers that come in our yard! (aka the birds...and squirrels...)

And of course his trademark--> his ears! He looks like a gremlin! The cutest gremlin I've ever seen ;)

Anyway, I'm pretty lucky to have such a sweet little guy who is always so happy to see me. He's not human, but he's definitely my baby! :)

Wedding Wednesday

Not as late as last week's post, but almost! I have been fairly busy all day. I babysit for a family with twin boys on Wednesdays and didn't get done until 3:30pm there. Then I had a doctor's appointment at 4pm and didn't leave there until 5...only then to head over to support my friend Leslie as the president of our nursing club at school! The club hosted a dinner so I went to hang out for a bit.

I got home, fully intent on updating and when the police came. They were packing our street. My sweet, elderly neighbor was missing. He went on a walk at 1pm and hadn't been heard from since. The fire department showed up, the helicopter was searching with it's headlight and police from 3 counties over were showing up to search. So, all of that trumped my Wedding Wednesday!

Praise the Lord, they did eventually find him walking towards home a few miles away :) I can rest easy tonight!

That being said, there really isn't that much to update on today!
  • Our engagement pictures are scheduled! Assuming the weather cooperates (please pray that it does!!), we will be taking those babies on February 20th! This is something I have really, really been looking forward to so I hope everything goes according to plan!
  • I'm so excited because our pictures will be taken at Clemson! That's where David and I met and I just think it's so fitting :)
  • Bridesmaid's should be ordering their dresses! I sent out the e-mail over the weekend so hopefully they are getting on top of that...
  • The search is still on for shoes. For me and the bridesmaids.
  • Oh! I've decided to try my hand at making my own garter--haha! I'll let you know how that turns out ;)
This is my final bridesmaid to introduce! I'm kind of sad I don't have anymore! Maybe I'll do David's groomsen next??

Meet Susan:

If you can't tell from the picture, Susan is David's sister--aka my soon to be sister-in-law!
She is such a sweet girl and very outgoing. She graduated from UGA and is finishing up her first year as a 3rd grade teacher! (And she is doing a fantastic job, I might add!) We don't see each other often, but when we do, we have a blast! So far, I think my favorite memory has been rooming together at the beach last summer!
We stayed up late into the night talking about everything and we got really close :) I feel very lucky to be getting such a great sister and friend. And I know she'll make a great aunt to my future kiddos! She already is to Marley and Jovie! I'm glad she'll be up there with me as I marry into her wonderful family!

Surprise! A Tuesday post! My life seems so boring during nursing school and I just hate to update everyday "Today I went to school. Then I came home and read until it was time to go to bed." And literally that's what my life consists of these days :)

Unfortunately, my school has decided to make some changes this LAST semester and I'm in the middle of trying to get everything figured out! Needless to say, it's brought on a lot of anxiety and tears. Frustrating!

I have 95 days until graduation so I'm just holding on to the hope that I make it! This is a short post, but I'll leave you with some of the things that are keeping me sane right now ;)

A whole lot of this yummy stuff!

So ready for some of this warm weather...and beautiful color!

Still enjoying being engaged...I only get to be engaged for another 7 1/2 months! :)

Love, love, love spending time with this hot athlete!

And of course this sweet, sweet boy!

Enjoy your week!
