My Bug

This is Bug.  He hates that I call him that, but I can't help it.  As nervous as I get about moving to a new city, he is my reassuring voice of reason.  He keeps me grounded and makes me laugh.  I love him very much and can't wait to be his wife.  Sorry for the cheesy post, it has been an emotional couple of weeks!


So I ordered this chandelier for the new house yesterday.  Did I mention it is the second one I have owned.  I must really love this chandelier.  We put it in our first house, but it was part of the closing...sad.  Tear.  All is good, because in six weeks I will have it again!  Tomorrow is my last day at Villa Dauphine.  I have been there six years, and have learned so much.  It is going to be bitter sweet to leave.

The House!

So we close on our house next week!  I am so excited.  Although I am nervous about moving to a new town, I am really ready to be settled.  I know I will have a lot to post about the new house.  We love it, and cannot wait to have a fresh start!  Promise pics to come soon!  I will finally get to unpack my camera cord.  Hope y'alls week is going well!

Here is a little sneak peek of some wedding details. Yes, I have already gotten a lot done! I figure do what I can while I am still living in Mobile. Planning a wedding out of town is a hassle! This is the bouquet that I have fallen head over heals for! It is romantic and dreamy, and has peonies. They are my absolute favorite flower, and a must for my bouquet. It also shows the colors I am using throughout the wedding. Soft peachy-pinks and even softer pear greens. I cannot wait!

This is my bridesmaids dress. It is the Ashley, by Vera Wang in Champagne. I want to order one for myself! Love! I can't show you my dress, it is a secret. I can tell you that I love it, and will want to wear it everyday even after the wedding! Happy Thursday!

Exciting News!

So as usual I feel very badly for having not made a post in forever...but I have some exciting news!  Paul(my boyfriend) and  got engaged this past weekend!  It was perfect and I couldn't be happier!  We were at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL.  If you have never been, go immediately!  It is a little piece of heaven on earth.  Here I will show you!

The main building.  Great food, great bar, and an even better piano player!

Beautiful oak trees are all over the grounds.  It is truly amazing.

The beds are like sleeping in a giant marshmallow.  This was the exact room we stayed in...or at least they look identical!
This was our view from our balcony.  Mobile Bay never looked so good.

And last but not least the pool.  Tons of chairs, yummy daiquiris, and super friendly staff.  I would seriously live here if I could.  Enough about The Grand!  I am super busy, more than before!  I have kicked into full gear on the wedding planning, so do not be surprised if a few wedding post creep their way in.  Hope everyone is having a great week!
