Sorry for my late post today...I had a training day at work and completely forgot to blog last night. Just slipped my mind. Until about 8am this morning when I started having blog withdrawals.
This was another three day weekend for me...but was uneventful and boring. Penny got fixed Thursday and Ross had a huge tournament this weekend, so I spent most of the weekend with the doggies being very bored.
We seriouslyyyyyy need some friends here. This place is absurdly boring without anyone to hang out with except each other. Ross is fun and all, but I really need to meet people. No one tells you when you graduate from college and move away that making friends is
basically impossible really freaking hard. Moving to a new town needs to come with some sort of orientation or rush week. Woooooof.
I want to buy one of these nifty calorie counting watch things...any suggestions? I have seen so many of you guys using the Polar Watch but have also heard really good things about the Nike Fuel Band. Help!!! I don't know which one to buy but need one ASAP since I only have 10 months to get wedding skinny.

1. These three cuties
2. My family :)
3. Shopping..especially for shoes
4. The ocean
5. My favorite, random TV shows
6. Cold, clean, crisp sheets
7. Visiting home
8. Sky-high mountains
9. Ice-cold beer...or any adult beverage really ;)
10. Fuzzy slippers
11. Concerts...any concerts, any time!
I was bored today and feeling completely uncreative...so I just started thinking of things that make me smile! Penny had to go to the vet to get fixed today so I am hoping that everything goes okay and she isn't feeling too crappy when I pick her up this evening!
And today is my Friday! So happy
Friday Thursday :)

YOU GUYS! I have made some insane progress this past week. Maybe it is because work has
finally slowed down, but I just pounded out some of the "to-do's".
If you follow along with me regularly then you know we had our engagement pics this past weekend! And the second I got them emailed to me I ordered our Save the Dates!!! I won't show you the official ones until they have been sent to our guests, but here are some of the pictures that I loved! I also really appreciated the maxi dress feedback...I ended up getting this Lilly Pulitzer dress, added a belt and fell in luuuuvvvvv.
** A few of these are unedited, but I just liked how they turned out anyway!
I can't wait to show you guys how the Save the Dates turn out!!
Another huge decision that we also made was...finally deciding on a ceremony location!!! I talked about how I was having a hard time deciding a little while ago and for some reason just "saw the light" the other day. I saw a chapel and just fell in love. And it turns out you can bring your own Catholic priest there and have a legal Catholic ceremony. Talk about hitting the jackpot. My cousin is a priest so he can marry us and the location is absolutely gorgeous for pictures! I am just thrilled about it.
This week has made me feel so much better about my planning!!
I have some other exciting stuff happening in my life too - 26th birthday next weekend AND going to Nashville for a sorority reunion that Friday night. I am sad that I will only be making the drive for just a quick night, but at least I get to see all of my amazing ladies!! I just wish I had someone making the trip with me...unfortunately Ross has to stay home and care for our two little fur babies. :(
Linking up for Wedding & Random Wednesday!

Last week one of my favorite link ups, First Things First, changed it up a bit and will now be known as 'From Firsts to Lasts'! I love participating in this link up because it gets my mind thinking a bit outside the box for my posts and tells you guys more about me.
This week we are talking about two firsts:
First Major in College
Since I went to a Business school, everyone automatically graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Business. Many students declare a 'concentration', however it is not required, therefore I did not do so. I took the same classes as most of my classmates - Entrepreneurship, Finance, Accounting, etc. I will say though, it was some of the best years of my life! I am so happy that I went there!
Me and my cheerleading coach!
First Date Success Story
This is a weird one for me...because I actually haven't been on an official "first date" that was successful. I had a boyfriend all through high school and we just 'started dating'...never had an official first date. Then the same thing happened in college. I had some very unsuccessful first dates when I graduated college and never went on official dates with Ross since we have the strangest story ever. I think that me flying to Utah to see an almost stranger for 3 days counts as my most successful "first date"!! :)
From my first trip to Park City...
Favorite place in the world!
Head over and link up with us today!!
Today also marks the end of an era for me. I officially am going to the DMV at lunch to get my South Carolina driver's license. I have held onto MA as long as I can possibly stretch it...but since the big 2-6 is coming up next week I have to rip the bandaid off and get a new license once and for all. It is a sad day.

I took Friday off to shop and ended up finding the best dress for my pictures!! It was way more money that I wanted to spend...but oh well, my birthday is coming up anyway! Then one of our groomsmen came to visit for the night, we took pictures Saturday and then went hiking Sunday! I will let the pictures tell you the whole story.
This sweet face woke me up Friday morning :)
Our living room is finally coming together!
Ross and AJ out on Friday night.
Preview of our pictures! I will post the rest on Wednesday :)
My sweet babies!
On their way to hike
Gorgeous view of the lake that we found
Ross has a huge tournament this week so I am living single parent life for the next 6 days. Penny has to get fixed on Thursday too...so another Friday off for me :)
Linking up with Sami today!

Back in March we were supposed to have our engagement pictures taken, but we had to reschedule. I was relieved at the time because I didn't have an outfit and would then have two whole months to plan out what to wear. Flash forward to today...less than 48 hours from our pictures and I have nothing. I need a new maxi and I need it now.
This evening and tomorrow will be spent in every store in the Greenville area trying to find that perfect engagement maxi. I am drooling over some of the ones below! I really think it will be hard to find the perfect dress!!
Where do you ladies usually shop for maxi dresses?
