#flashbackfriday


I think I love weekends more than the average human. This picture was my first birthday we celebrated together at one of the first places we ever went out to eat, the Oyster Bar! The first year of our relationship we were long distance. The weekends were really the only time we had to spend together and that's always been really special to me. 

Soooo, happy Friday and happy weekend! I hope you all have the best weekend and spend it with the ones you love :)

Welcome to El Dorado...


I just came across this map the other day and wanted to share this fun wedding project! My mom was determined to have welcome bags in the hotel rooms of all of our out of town guests, filled with food, fun El Dorado giveaways and info.

Silly Bojangles....


My mom sent me this picture over the weekend and I just died! She was about to start working on a puzzle, looks up to see Bo. Silly cat, she just wanted to help! :)

Life Cleanse...

This is my closet... yes, I know. Can you believe it? There is space to move things, it's not all jam packed.. I don't know when this happened to my life.....

And another....


Okay, so I lied... one more wedding post, for now :) I totally forgot about these adorable chalkboard signs I made for the reception. I really wanted to make legitimate signs but every time I tried I messed them up so bad! I couldn't find good chalk, so I tried markers.. I tried paint pens, everything! I finally designed them to look like chalkboards and printed them... I don't know that I tricked anyone... but I tried!

These were so fun! I'm not much of a graphic artist, but I like to try. XOXO

Wedding Favor Obsession

 

You thought I was finished blogging about our wedding, right? Wrong! I know I already mentioned these books in the reception post but they are far too cute and fun to not talk about them again... much less, show you the inside! Eeeeeee......

Garth Brooks!

Last month we went to the Garth Brooks concert here in Little Rock... it was amazing!!! Wendy, Daniel, Lindsey and Brian came to town to join us. We had a fabulous pre-Garth meal at my favorite, the Oyster Bar! I stole this picture of the crew from Lindsey.......

Reception time!


This was one of my favorite moments of the whole day-- After the trolley didn't show... we got to the Granite Club way before everyone else. The doors were open, fall air filled the house, the classical pianist was playing something lovely, we had the whole house to ourselves. We were popping bacon wrapped crackers like it was our job! It was so perfect-- two moments from the whole day that are so clear to me-- the vows and this........

Part V- Reception Details

We borrowed these awesome sugar molds from Kathy Gean (the caterer). They are amazing! I actually started working on the floral design on this one, Lauren and Mom came in behind me and finished it all. So fun!.......

Ceremony Time, Part IV


Ahhh, it's ceremony time! After we took what felt like a million family pictures we went in the church and signed the official register and license (should we have just skipped the ceremony? I mean, weren't we technically married at that point?!)........

Christmas...

I interrupt wedding posts to post about Christmas! We had such a great holiday celebration this year, less traveling this year and lots of family time! I took the whole week of Christmas off, which was so wonderful. We started with Middlekauff Christmas in Conway the weekend before Christmas.....
