Weekend Update

So this weekend feels like it flew by super fast!! 

Friday night, I went to watch Blaze and his team play. It was the longest baseball game ever... I ended up leaving early because the dang mosquitoes were SUPER bad!! They ended up winning though which was great!!

Saturday, I ended up leaving for DFW (instead of leaving Sunday like planned). I had to pack up really quick and leave. It only took me about 7 hours instead of 8 like normal!! I only stopped twice since I didnt have Blaze with me haha (he loves to stop alot on roadtrips)

Sunday (yesterday) I met up with my high school gals!! It was really nice to see them! It has been forever since Ive seen them but its nice because whenever we do get together, it's like nothing has changed!! We went and got lunch and sat out on the patio since the weather was amazing!! 

This week is going to be a crazy busy one!! I am SUPER excited to see all of my lovely ladies while Im here though!! Im so glad they only work today and tomorrow so I can see them the rest of the week! (in between working and doing wedding stuff)

I get to do cake tasting later this week and let me say how excited I am!! WOOHOO!  I am going to see the venue again I think on Wednesday to just walk around and talk decorations!! I also have to do a trial run with hair/makeup one day and also do a fitting with my wedding dress!!

Ill definitely take pictures for the wedding wednesday link up for next week!! 

Have a great week!!! :)

Summer Beauty Favorites

Im SO ready for summer and the pool and our secret honeymoon destination!! Here are some of my summer beauty favorites!!summer beauty favorites

Summer Beauty Favorites

1. Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes-LOVE these wipes. They contain no perfumes and are great for sensitive skin! They take off all of your makeup including waterproof mascara!! They are super cheap and come in a 25-count pack!! 

2.Essie Boom Boom Boom Nail Polish- I can't go without nail polish in the summer! It always has to be a shade of pink! I LOVE Boom Boom Boom's color!! So fun and summer-y! (And everyone loves Essie!!)

3. Not Your Mothers Beach Babe- This stuff is amazing! Just spray, let it dry a little and go!! Gives you that great beach hair look!! It has salt in it so it helps give the beachy, curly look for me!!

4. L'Oreal Paris Sublime Self Tanning Lotion- I absolutely love this stuff!! It gradually tans you (faster than most) and gives you a great glow!! Super affordable and makes your skin feel super soft!!

5.L'Oreal Quick Dry Sunscreen- I just really like L'Oreal's products!! They make a great sunscreen that I would recommend!! Doesn't feel gross after you spray it on at all!

6. Waterproof Mascara- Everyone needs a good waterproof mascara for the summertime! I really like sephora's waterproof mascara. Makes my lashes look great and stays on all day!

7. Makeup Setting Spray- This stuff is awesome for after you apply your makeup. It gets super hot down here in the south, so we tend to sweat off our makeup sometimes! This just helps keep everything settled!

Ive been thinking alot about the rehearsal dinner lately!! Im getting excited to think that we have about 3 months to go. I really need to find outfits for all of these occasions coming up, especially for the rehearsal dinner! We are having ours at a restaurant in Burleson! It will be a casual/dressy attire, so the girls can wear cute dresses and the guys can wear whatever. Blaze is wearing starched jeans and a button down with his new fancy boots! I think it would be fun to wear a pretty white dress of some sort--white dresses are NOT easy to find that are cute though. Here are some of my favorites I have found!

Blaze's mom is hosting the rehearsal dinner but I came across some of these ideas on Pinterest (of course). Super cute/fun!!

1) A cute way to have the menu set out so everyone can see it!!

2) These are spiked lemonades in mason jars!! Can we say YUM??

3) Corn Hole (DIY) with the bride and groom's initials!! So cute!

4) Have everyone at rehearsal dinner sign a bottle of wine or champagne and open it on your first anniversary

5) Have everyone write down a memory of the bride or groom and then you read them on your honeymoon!!

New Orleans Adventure

We FINALLY went to New Orleans after church this past Sunday!! Yes, I know, we have lived here since August and we are just now going to see what New Orleans is all about!! It was so pretty outside on Sunday so it was a great day to be outside! We didn’t mean to end up down in the French quarter but after church we were going to go out to eat. I found this place that seemed to have a good brunch menu so we were looking for it but then as we got closer, we were driving around the French quarter! After what felt like forever trying to find a place to park, we ended up walking around and were just looking for a place to eat! We ended up going to Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville. It was definitely good! (Ive been to two now, I went to his margaritaville in Hawaii and now New Orleans!) After we were done eating, we were across the street from the French market (I think it’s called). We walked around and got a drink, since you can walk around while drinking there! The weather was amazing!! It was fun just walking around and seeing what all was going on down there!! We had fun for sure!

Five on Friday


1. I keep thinking about the bachelorette party coming up in July!! I know it's still 3 months away but I'm super super excited!! Here is the cute little house we are staying at for the Bachelorette Party :)

2. This is one of our 'guest books' for the wedding reception!! :) 

3. Saw this picture the other day and it gave me a good laugh!! :) #Blondemoment
Blond moment!

4. Im thinking about buying this for another 'guest book.' Then have Blaze stain it & hang it up on our wall!! :)

5. Working & living in southern Louisiana, I have come to realize that they hate Texans very much (almost as much as I hate living here). I think they are bitter, they have to pay for their kids to go to private school for a half-decent education, while we have AMAZING public schools, everything here is overpriced, while you can get a beautiful home w/land for the price of an okay home here, the people cant talk right or drive and there are NO jobs... want me to keep going?? haha #MISSINGTEXAS 
I love Texas even though I was a transplant.  It just gets into your blood! I miss Texas now!!!

Weekend Update

Blaze left town Tuesday and didn’t get back until yesterday afternoon! It was boring around our house for the week for sure.

Friday I got off work at 3, ran some errands and then spent the night watching Easy A (for the second time that day) and drank wine while doing homework that was due that night!! 

Saturday I spent the day cleaning, doing laundry and started putting together our wedding invitations! I watched the baseball game on the laptop. Since there is never anything EVER on tv on Saturdays, I saw that they were having the game of thrones marathon getting ready for the season premiere Sunday night so I decided to give it a try. The first couple episodes I wasn't feeling it but I continued to watch. I'm on episode 15 now... some episodes are weird but it is an interesting show for sure. 

Sunday I went to the gym again and just cleaned and waited for Blaze to get home! We just hung out and watched the ACMs last night... so funny. I love Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan… great host’s haha

Back to work… it is rainy and cool outside… makes me want to do absolutely nothing but sleep and watch movies on the couch!!  Is it Friday yet??
