weekend recap: bridal shower

My bridal shower was this weekend and it was fabulous! 

My best friend & maid of honor hosted and organized the shower. 
The Bestie! 

She went above and beyond anything I expected. 

Her decor was super cute and fancy. 

She had the shower at a local inn and they catered. 

I loved celebrating with my friends and family 
and getting to introduce D to a few people that he had not met yet. 

My Bridesmaids! 

Future Mother-in-Law & Sister-in-Law 

Hope y'all had a great weekend as well!

february aka the month from hell

What's New With You

Y'all, so much stuff happened in February and most of it was horrible. 
I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer, 
but I was so glad when it was March 1st. 

I will not go into too much detail, but in short: 
One of D's first cousins passed away unexpectedly (he was only 28). 
We all caught a bad stomach virus from someone at the funeral and D had to go to the ER. 
Somebody pulled out in front of me and totaled my brand new car (only made 4 payments on it). 
Sidenote: insurance companies are the WORST! 
D's grandmother has been in and out of the hospital/nursing home. 
And last weekend D's sister was bitten by the family dog and had to get stitches. 

Every week was something new to deal with. 
But, bright side, D and I got through it together. 
This was probably the most difficult month we have had together and we made it. 
At least now we know how the other reacts during difficult/stressful times. 
Good info to have going into a marriage. 

Even with all the bad, there was some really good stuff too.
Daisy from my Valentine! 
 D and I had two wedding showers. 
One with his family and one with his Dad's hunting club. 
Those were really fun days celebrating with family and friends. 
And we both really appreciated everyone's generosity and well wishes. 

Spending weekends playing with puppies. 
Even better, we have given away all but two of the puppies. 
They are cute, but expensive little things. 

Overall, I am glad February 2016 is over. 
Here's to a (hopefully) much better March and countdown to the Wedding.  
Only 57 days to go!!!
