It was the Best Day of Our Lives…So Far..

Invitations had already been sent, RSVPs were rolling in, and my vision of our peanut warehouse wedding was set in my mind. THEN BAM, out of nowhere, I get a message that we had to move our wedding venue from the Peanut Warehouse in Conway South Carolina due a structural issue to another location!!!!

 What I didn’t know was that God had a plan for Brian and me to get married somewhere else. 

Like any bride would, I had my freak out moment. Just imagine me, pacing around our house, calling every person I know venting about the situation. After my freak out session for about an hour (or five), I immediately started googling, where in the heck is going to have an opening with only a month in advance?!

Then…out of nowhere ….I find..THE THOMPSON FARM. I picked up the phone right away and somehow they actually had an opening! I was SHOCKED. Something so beautiful could not have an opening on our weekend. I booked the venue right away.  I will say this, If I had known about the Thompson Farm before the peanut warehouse, I would have chosen that spot immediately. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect place to get married to the love of my life.

It was the best day of my life so far and here are the pictures to prove it:

Apple Cinnamon Smoothie Recipe- You’ll love It!

Brian and I have become so into making smoothies lately. Ever since we invested in a decent blender, we have been on this kick. I’m loving it. I enjoy having one on my way to work every morning. Lately i’ve been craving something  with apples in it, so we just threw some different ingredients into the blender and BAM, we created the Apple Cinnamon Smoothie. 

While it may take a little bit of chopping, peeling off skin of different fruits, and measuring a few ingredients, all you really have to do is just throw it all into the blender. We have a Ninja Blender. Which, by the way, karate chops fruit up better than teenage mutant ninja turtle (corny joke, i know).

Happy Love Day!

I’m about to get real cheesy on y’all but what’s a better time to get all gushy than valentines day?! I’m marrying the love of my life and best friend in less than 3 months. Here’s a little montage of our relationship:

 As you can tell:

  1.  We obviously love to sing to Luke Bryan.
  2.  We love summer and being on the water.
  3.  Brian loves his Gamecocks.
  4.  We are goofy as hell.
  5.  I love him.

 Have a happy love day tomorrow! Xoxoxo
