weekend recap: mountain vacation in pictures

I spent 4 glorious days in the Georgia mountains this past weekend 
and it was amazing. 
Why do Mondays have to happen?! 

D's family decided to do a quick family vacation to the mountains. 
It was my first family vacation with his entire immediate family. 
It went fabulously. 
I am seriously getting the best in-laws ever! 
I am looking forward to many more family vacations in the future. 

Our Cabin 

Helen, GA 

We hiked up to see Anna Ruby Falls. 

Selfie at the top of the mountain! 
We had fun playing games at the cabin. 
Monopoly lasted forever. ;) 

D's brother won! 
Before we came home on Sunday, 
we stopped by Babyland.

wedding wednesday: shoes & an update

First, I just want to say that I have started 
my advising schedule for the year, 
which sucks my free time. 
So, posting will not happen super often. 
I know ... Surprise, Surprise. ;) 


Y'all, I got my wedding shoes this week. 
I love them! 

Of course, I am wearing Converse with my wedding dress. 
Speaking of the wedding dress. 
I have not even started dress shopping. 
I absolutely dread it! 

I hate shopping. 
I really just want to buy it online. 
But EVERYONE else wants me to try on dresses in a store. 
I will probably compromise 
and do the whole dress trying on thing with my girls, 
but, then, still buy the dress I want online. 

Other than that, planning is going excellently. 
We are getting our engagement pictures done next month. 
So, I have decided that we will combine our Save the Dates with our Christmas cards. 
Gotta save that money! 

We have finally narrowed down our invitations. 
Here is a sneak peak of the style, 
with our wedding monogram: 

Okay y'all! 
Did anyone else out there dread the wedding dress experience? 
Or did you love the dress shopping experience?
