Happy Friday :)

Hey y'all..I didn't think Friday would ever come this week! I'm currently at my office wrapping up some things, then I'm heading to Conway to spend the weekend with family, and see this beautiful couple get married tomorrow!
Look familiar? Amber from {Living in the Moment} is marrying Brad tomorrow and I can't wait to see her walk down the aisle! I know this wedding is going to be out of control gorgeous!    
 No trip to Conway is complete without a little shopping and lot of family! I'm excited to spend the weekend away from home and away from planning for my wedding! 
I hope you guys have a great weekend!

Wedding Nightmares

Hey y'all! As you all can probably gather from the title of this post I'm having a little wedding planning trouble. We're just over a month out from the date, and everything seems to be moving along well in the planning, we just have a few things to finish up and we will be done. 
Enter the problem....I have been having NIGHTMARES...not Jason & Freddy nightmares, but WEDDING Nightmares. Myself, with the help of my very best friends are planning this all by ourselves. Most everything about our special day will be DIY, so why am I freaked out, I'm controlling it all, right? I am not a very "simple" person, I love things BIG and over the top, and quite frankly it's tough to achieve big and over the top on a very minimal budget. I just fear things will end up looking tacky and cheap, and I'm one those people that DOES care what people say about 
The theme, if we have to pick a theme would be "Country Chic"...never heard of it? I may or may not have made it up...just go with it. Lots of fresh spring flowers like hydrangeas and peonies, burlap runners, mason jars, galvanized buckets, feeling my vision? I KNOW deep down it will turn out beautiful, and be unique, and exactly what I wanted, myself or my friends wouldn't have it any other way. I just need to stop stressing...every time someone asks if I'm ready for the wedding, my response "I'm ready for it to be over with"...granted it might be the truth, I just want to know that everything is in order and that it will be my perfect day. 
So in short, what am I telling you all today...ELOPE, ELOPE, ELOPE...only kidding...well sort of!!

Here are a few sneak peeks of some actual wedding items, and inspirations!
This will be my bouquet, but wrapped in twine. The girls will have the same just a little smaller.
Nate is building me 2 of these from this Shanty2Chic tutorial to put hydrangeas in on our food tables

This is my centerpiece inspiration for my low tables, with purple/green hydrangeas and white peonies

These are our actual favors. Homemade peach and strawberry jam by my Mamaw

Most importantly I have to remember...

 I hope y'all are having a great week. For fun, and because I need more things to have nightmares about...what is something that went bad wrong at your wedding? And what are some things I might be forgetting, that I definitely don't need to forget?

15 Fun Facts

Hey y'all, it's been quite a while since I've done an "About Me" type of here's 15 random facts about ME!

 I'm Lacey, I'm a 25 year old from LA (lower Arkansas that is)
This will be my 7th year at my current job, and I absolutely love it. I love the dental field, and I couldn't work for a better boss!

I love my car more than any human being should!
I have a serious addiction to Reality TV...there are like 14 different timers on my DVR!

I love the idea of a spotless house, but hate to clean. Basically I have ZERO domestic qualities!

I took piano lessons for 3 years..all I remember is the Titanic song..and I regret quitting.

 You probably don't wanna talk to me in the morning before my daily Dr. Pepper!

  I am an only child, and honestly have loved every minute of it :)

Next month I'm marrying my best friend. I love him with my whole heart!

Back when I was a Dental Assistant, I assisted on the Root Canals of a Bear, Gorilla, and a Lion!

 I love to, love, love to shop!

I have a lead foot, and I am speeding 99.9% of the time! Unfortunately along with that I have received NUMEROUS speeding tickets! :/

I've never been to Disney World! Deprived child much?! (We're changing that later this year thank goodness!)

In my next life I will own my own business as a party/events coordinator! I love things over the top, and I love being the boss...this is something I'd really love to do in the future! 

I think babies are precious, and I would be really amazing at dressing one, but that doesn't necessarily mean I want one. And I HATE it when people tell me "You'll change your mind"...why do I have to change my mind? Is it a requirement to have children? Did I miss that in the rule book?

I am one of those people that sincerely values friendship! I can count my BEST friends on one hand, and can thankfully say I know I can count on those people NO MATTER WHAT! I'm a very fortunate girl!

Target Tuesday

Today I'm linking up with Tara for Target Tuesday!
I mentioned a few weeks ago that we're doing some minor things to spruce up our current home, because we will be living there a little longer than we had initially anticipated. I got some new curtains for the living room, and I am really wanting a new rug to add some color. Here are a few that caught my eye at Target this week!

 All of these rugs can be found here

I especially love the first and last one, they both would add a lot of color to our living room!
 Go link up with Tara and show us what you're loving at Target today!

What's been going on?

Nate and I at the Chocolate Fantasy Ball
Wine/Craft Night with HollyJ
The product of wine/craft night!
Sweet little things like this make me certain I'm marrying my soulmate...I found this on our front steps a couple weeks ago. it definitely made my heart smile!
My new pretty! I love leopard :)
I've been crossing things off my wedding to-do list..this was one of them. Out family Bible that will be used during the ceremony, and cherished for many years to come
Almost every detail of our wedding will be somewhat DIY. These are the tags for our wishing tree, mom and I stained them with tea, then hand stamped them.
They will have twine at the top to attach them to the Wishing tree :)

I feel like I haven't sat down and actually written a blog post in the longest time, and to be quite honest I miss it. I wish I had the time to be a more frequent blogger, and after this wedding it is something I will definitely try to make a part of my routine will do. Everyday I catch up on my favorite blogs, and enjoy reading about what you ladies have going on :) 

My 1 year blogging anniversary is just around the corner, and I want to do a little giveaway to celebrate! I will also be crossing a couple things off my 30 before 30 list in the next month, so what better way to celebrate than to give away something fabulous to my readers!
Stay tuned for that!
I hope you're all doing wonderful! Have a great rest of the week :)
