Friday Best - 8 Days!


e i g h t  days until we get hitched! Can you believe that? We knew our engagement would zoom by as it was only a 8 month period of time & it sure did. We are so glad we did a short engagement though. We accomplished so much in the past 8 months - wedding wise & generally. We are in the home stretch and couldn't be more excited!

This weekend I'm going to hit a 90-min Orange Theory class (wish me luck), we are celebrating one last date night as fiances and then we are having family up on Sunday to have a little wedding work day + bbq. Packing up all the decor, talking game plans, and grilling burgers. Life is full of many blessings right now.

A few extra bests for the week, keeping it short & sweet --

Friday Best - First in August

It's here. August. Wedding month!!!
Currently feeling all the emotions - excitement, joy, eager, and nervous, easily overwhelmed, stressed - all of them. As our day nears and everything is starting to come together, I am more excited than anything else. It's definitely a rollercoaster of emotions though - no doubt about that.

It's been a hot minute since I've made time to write a Friday Best post, but I have been missing this space and will be back more regularly post-wedding. Blog re-brand and lots of good content that I've been wanting to share. I did a quick catch up the other day, but since it's the first of the month, let's start with the best plans of the month and some quick peeks at my week. I have a dress fitting tomorrow, we have a family friend's wedding to attend, Sunday I am having a little spa day - facial + massage, and later on me and family are heading to our church picnic.

best August plans
GET MARRIED [8.18.18] / Honeymoon in Jamaica / attend a family friend's wedding / attend our church picnic with family / have a spa day / two days off to prep for the wedding / lots and lots and lots of celebrating

Quick Catch Up

Hi. Hey. Hello.
I do still exist!
I have soo missed being able to find the time to write in this space. There is so much going on that I want to be logging here in my little piece of the web. But we have so many top priorities right now that I just haven't made the time to sit down and blog. But I will soon!
A few things I've been up to---
- learning at my new job
- adapting back to country living
- attending orange theory
- attending my last bridal shower (full post to come- love is brewing)
- dress fittings
- being in my cousin's wedding
- making lots of wedding decisions/calls, running errands, scheduling appointments + meetings
- designing wedding bands
- wedding diys (beef spice rubs + furniture)
- attending my bachelorette party (full post to come - bride's herd)
- celebrating being one month out from our wedding date
- attending the county fair (with another one to attend this week)

lots of running, but doing lots of fun things amongst all the errands and decisions and to-do's. lots of time with friends, family and my cattleman. it's been a blur of a Summer but we have squeezed in so much goodness and are 25 days out from our wedding!!!! I told the Cattleman that this is my motto for the remainder of wedding planning ---  s i m p l e --

So, I'll be back with some better posts soon, but wanted to pop in and give a brief rambling update on things. Life is so busy, but so good in this season. Cheers, folks!

Friday Best

Hi guys! It's Friday - for me it's a touch sad because it means my week off in between gigs is up. It's been a good one - I've felt productive and also overwhelmed with all my to-do's. Lots of good hedgeway this week overall and I feel well rested and ready to start a new career path. I can't wait for my close commute and to be able to come home on lunch breaks.

Today is my Mom's birthday and also my future Father-in-Law's birthday - same age, same day, same hospital. Both of our Grandma's shared the same room when they had them - wild, yes? This weekend the Cattleman has his bachelor party on Saturday and I have my final wedding shower on Sunday. This one is thrown by my Bridesmaids and Family - looking forward to it! I'll be sure to take my good camera along and snag ample pictures.

Goodbye Beacon Hill

Goodbyes are never easy and this one is especially hard. This week I say goodbye to my team at Beacon Hill and my role as a Recruiter. I've been with the company for nearly 5 years & have grown so much professionally & personally over this span of years. They have seen me through so many life changes & most of my team feels more like family than co-workers. My boss, the company, the culture - literally so great!

Wedding Update v.3

My Knot app tells me we have 67 days until our big day!! 9 weeks. Wow!

I shared my last  wedding update in April & since then we've had a few updates - but truthfully, not a ton. Our wedding has been on the poor back-burner with more pressing deadlines with my home sale + move. But alas, we are ready to punch the gas and put a plan in place to finish up all the pending to-dos. It's not a ton, but just enough to cause a touch of anxiety.
