"If religion is so great, why has it started to many wars? Why does it build huge churches, but fail to feed the poor?"

Facebook...I'm really struggling with it right now! It seems to be a constant source of aggravation. Not necessarily related to me, but the things I see and read make me want to gouge my eyes out! I wish it were easier to just disconnect and be without it!

current celebrity crush
Seriously...I have an unhealthy obsession with Taylor

current #1 blessing
Seriously, my 2 best friends! I really don't know what I'd do without these 2. I know for certain this wedding would not be happening if it weren't for them. I am so incredibly blessed to have them both in my life!

 Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls...definitely not on the Wedding Diet (that I should be on)

current outfit
As usual...scrubs...Yuck! My staples lately have been jeans, TOMS, and a Patagonia pullover!

And the email I got from the lady making our labels for favors! They are super cute! I can't wait to start putting it all together!

Wedding Updates

It's been quite a while since I've blogged about the wedding, so I thought I would share a few details today! We have a date in concrete, and as of yesterday a completely new location, which I don't exactly love, but it will all work out just fine. Initially we were supposed to have the wedding at Nate's parents lake house on the balcony, over looking the lake...gorgeous..right...yea...not so much anymore. The lake house is a little over 2 hours away from home, and between scheduling conflicts with our preacher, and the struggle of trying to plan in a location that's 2 hours away we just decided to keep it a little closer to home, so I'm hoping it still turns out how I've planned. The location we've booked has an outdoor "gazebo" type we will plan to have the ceremony there, and the reception in the banquet room.
  • I've purchased a dress that I love, I can't wait for it to come in and me to actually be able to try it on in the correct size/color. It's a bridesmaid dress that I ordered in champagne, but it will work perfectly because I wanted something simple. 
  • We've decided what were going to do in place of a unity candle/sand...because we didn't really want either of those in our ceremony. 
  • I've purchased several pieces of decor that I think will be great with our "Country Chic" theme! Just think antique wooden crates, mason jars, galvanized buckets and lots and lots of gorgeous hydrangeas!
  • I've picked a cake style I love, and decided on a menu.
  • I've picked invitations, and decided on programs.
  • I've decided on one favor for sure, and am debating a second
I'm hoping from here on out there are no more bumps in the road...I still have a million things to do, but with the help of my 2 favorite girls, this should be no problem at all! Ultimately I just can't wait for it to actually be here, and I get to marry my best friend...
I love these hydrangeas in mason jars! This is the direction we're going with our theme! Country chic, right!? ;)
