Wedding Wednesday - 102 days!

So lately, I have only been posting things wedding related. Which, in my defense, has kind of taken over my world recently. So - once again linking up with Kristyn and Mary!

We are only 102 days out - ah!

This week Bevskies and I accomplished the following:
  • Gathered the guest lists for my family shower in September
  • My sister/MOH emailed girls in regards to a Bachelorette on the weekend that works in my schedule.
  • I ORDERED SHOES!!! (and they should arrive today). I had an extra 40 % off code for Piperlime and they are the right height - not too high. Hopefully they will fit when they arrive TODAY! 
  • I scheduled my bridal portraits for the end of August - therefore I am constantly lifting weights to get those wedding arms!
  • We ordered our cocktail napkins - so excited we are down to the small stuff, ah!

Happy Wednesday!


Wedding Wednesday

It seems like the only time I can manage to post these days is on Wednesday - what a coincidence, that Wednesdays happen to be Wedding Wednesdays ;). Linking up with the adorable Mary and Kristyn

This week I have gotten a ton of stuff done wedding wise - its hard to believe we are only 109 days out, ah!

  • I've ordered pretty much everything for my bridesmaid gifts. I still have to get some stuff done on my end, but the materials are on their way to my house! I cannot WAIT to share, I am dying to give them to the girls!!
  • We ordered and received our flower girl dresses and I love them! They are JCrew but with an eBay price - my favorite! We got them in Ivory but the picture of the back only shows the " bright guava". For those interested, it is the Avery dress found here

  • Our invitations came in and I am OBSESSED with them! I knew I wanted something classic with a monogram and I had a horrible time trying to find a pre-designed one I loved. I also didn't have a bunch of time to meet with someone local and we don't have a ton of options anyways. I was able to find a simple design on The American Wedding and I was able to pick out my own font, my own wording, my own paper color, everything. It was so much simpler than using my software to have it printed by a 3rd party, affordable and I LOVE THEM! I can't wait to show y'all!!
  • We finally got the rehearsal dinner nailed down at the restaurant Stuart and I have wanted FOREVER. It was a WEEK and took a ton of patience on my part, but we are all set. And I get to have the people included that I feel like need to be there - ya know, the people in the wedding party and those participating in the ceremony. Which wasn't always going to happen. GAH. But it is done! And I am thrilled!
Happy Wednesday!



Four years ago today, I started dating this guy I was friends with in high school. Who knew all of this would transpire:

And that is just a teeny glimpse of the last 4 years!

Boots - I am so lucky to get to spend the rest of my life with you! Here is to about 90 more anniversaries before we skip into heaven, sound good? I can't believe I have found someone that wants to put up with me for the rest of their life. I am a bit cray, you know... nevermind. So lets stuff ourselves full of Mexican food from Plaza every July 12th from here on out. And remember that awkward double date, holding hands at Corey Smith, and a kiss in the rain a few days later. It was definitely the start of something wonderful. 

Remember: Mexican food on July 12th, presents on November 2nd, water before we go to sleep, I love you's before we get off the phone, pinky promises to seal a deal, rivalry games to spice things up, and always being a part of Team Speth.

Woo, 4!


Honeymoon Help!

Stuart and I kind of mutually decided that since we bought the house this year, our honeymoon wouldn't require air travel. At first, I was bummed because I could just picture the warm sun and a cool Mich Ultra in my hand on the beach, but after thinking about it, I got excited! I knew we'd want to go south (who wants to go where it is COLDER in November? Not me, peeps). Plus, I love a good road trip. Some Diet Coke, a few snacks, good music on the radio and my boy - what's not to like?

When looking at places south of us that would be a reasonable distance to drive to, we talked about Florida at first - but it is a pretty long way from here and we have jaunted down 95 a few times over the years to head there. I wanted to go some place different.

So.. dun duh duh duhhhhh. We will be heading to Charleston, SC! 

I have friends that are obsessed with Charleston and I have been dying to go for several years now! I went to Hilton Head in college and we bopped down to Savannah, GA, for the day but I have never been to Charleston. It seems like the quintessential southern coastal town and I am so excited to go!

After brunch the day after the wedding, we will head to Wilmington, NC for the night. Home of Dawsons Creek - oh holla! You better believe we will be stopping to see some of Dawson, Pacey, Joey and Jen's old stomping grounds!

Then we will head down the coast on route 17 to Charleston.

So y'all - I need suggestions! Great places to eat (duhhh this is the most important). Places to stay? Bed and Breakfasts? Nice hotels? Things to see? Things to visit? I need the Charleston DEETS people!

Happy Tuesday!


A Little Weekend Review

Does anyone else feel like their summer weekends are just a plethura of fun, but busy activities?!?

We kicked our weekend off by going to celebrate my best friend and matron of honor's birthday with her whole familia. You know I got in some Hallie Faith time too :). Love their famjam! Happy 24th Coley :).

Saturday was spent going through stuff from my grandmother's condo. It caught fire two weeks ago. Thank goodness she was safe! We went through a bunch of clothes, pictures, etc. It was actually pretty neat to see all of the stuff she has saved over the years!

Saturday night we headed over to celebrate the engagement of one of my best friends! I grew up in church with Kylee and her fiance Patrick - I've known them both since birth ;). So excited they are finally tying the knot!!  Is her dress not to die for? She is too gorgeous for her own good!

Sunday I went for my long run in the INSANE HUMIDITY. Nas-tay! After grabbing some Subway with my parents, we went to see my grandmother and she gave me our first wedding gift - my Kitchen Aid Mixer!!!! I have been DYING for one of these for YEARS AND YEARS! So excited! And it is red to match our kitchen :).

We stopped in Richmond on our way back to pick up my veil and accessories!!! I was a little upset about how one piece turned out so I decided to medicate that with some Sweet Frog ;). AND THEY HAVE WAFFLE CONES! Anyone who knows me knows that I prefer the waffle cone to the actual ice cream. And mint chocolate chip is my fave. Come to find out, there were waffle cones and mint froyo. I just added my own sprinkles/choc chips and I was a happy camper!

Happy Monday! So excited for a 3 day work week :)
