Scrimps and Wedding Surprises :)

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,
 or Charleston,
 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!!!
 It's gorgeous.
 Taffeta, empire waste, buttons down the back and Swarovski crystals.
 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,
 white hydrangeas,
 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!

 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 :)


  1. Im so excited for you, I hope to see more post about your wedding :)

  2. Hahah! My family calls shrimps "Scrimps" too! I 100% agree with you about the less stress of planning a "ceremony" after you are already married! Can't wait to read more!

  3. How sweet! I love that song and I'm sure it will be beautiful!

    Our first set of furniture was all hand-me-downs too. It's been so fun over the years to buy our own pieces and really make our house our own. It's only taken about 10 years, but it's finally to where we feel like it shows our personality.

    Love reading about the wedding stuff - have fun!

  4. Oh gosh, lady! It's going to be such a beautiful day!

  5. Being a DIY bride is so fun!!! It makes it so much more personal and fun!!! Congrats girl!
