We went with some friends of ours to the Shrimp Festival today
(my husband calls them Scrimps)
and I ate carnival food and crab cakes
like fat wasn't even a word.
It was fab.
I also saw tons and tons of pictures
that people had blown up and had printed onto canvas
and were selling for OBNOXIOUS prices.
I mean, I know I'm not a pro or anything,
but I have some pictures that I think are pretty darn good.
Maybe I should look into that,
selling some of them.
Which brings me to another point,
of the fact that I can't wait to decorate our next house.
Our furniture was all hand-me-down
and nothing matches
and there's really no theme in the whole place.
When we move again we hope to get new stuff
and hang some of my photography
and make it look more cohesive.
I can't wait.
BE and I are trying to plan a trip for our 1-year anniversary
coming up soon!!!
Sadly, there isn't a single cabin still available in Gatlinburg
or anywhere close.
So who knows where we will go?
We've thought Disney,
but we're on the fence.
Also trying to figure out how much we can afford to spend,
with me paying on wedding stuff.
I may quite possibly have found my dress this week!!!
Taffeta, empire waste, buttons down the back and Swarovski crystals.
I'M OBSESSED WITH POCKETS.
Like, you don't even know.
I almost have to buy this dress on principle.
It's that bad.
I also decided on navy blue bridesmaids dresses,
and silver shoes.
I think I am going to have fun making this stuff DIY :)
It's kind of nice that this is our ceremony,
and not our actual marriage,
because there is so much less stress!!
Who cares if it goes off without a hitch?
That everything looks absolutely perfect?
Because they're coming to show their love for us,
not to see us put on a show.
I can't wait!
I already have a SUPER SPECIAL SURPRISE
that I'm going to do for BE at our reception,
and he has NO IDEA.
So glad I can share it here!!
I play piano, and I am obsessed with a certain song.
So I bought the piano score for it the other day,
and I'm going to practice it when he's not home,
so I can play and sing it to him before our first dance.
I think it's going to be adorable
if I can do it without bawling like a baby.
Hope you like the song :)
