((To Be)) Follow up

Greg is in a wedding soon and while I can not wait to see these friends get married, I’m also just a little bit over the moon with the fact the wedding is in Nashville! We have never been before, so we’re taking off a day early to hit the town before his groomsman duties begin!

After a little bit of Pinterest/blogging research, I’ve filled up a schedule for us, but I’m still scared we’ll miss something! So if you have been/are there and want to add your favorite places onto our list, I would be incredibly grateful!

I will be sure to post about our experience after we get back!


Do you remember my Starbucks post from a few weeks back? I am happy to announce I have expanded my horizon and tried a few new drinks. My findings:

  • Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino– sadly this was a disappointment. While I love dark chocolate, mint, and coffee…. this just wasn’t the correct mix. I love sweet and even for me this was too sweet. It had the fake mint flavor and not enough coffee. True story, I actually went home and made myself another cup of coffee. While I am not upset that I did try it, I am not going to purchase it again before it leaves for the summer.
  • Coconutmilk Mocha Macchiato– my mom tried this while I was in Florida and I had a sip, it was delightful, I will for sure be ordering it again.

My Best Friend’s Wedding

No, I’m not talking the Julia Roberts Blockbuster (but now that I’m thinking about it, I could definitely watch that). I’m actually talking about one of my actual best friends, and her wedding from this past weekend.

Her and her husband were engaged soon after Greg and me, and planning our weddings together was such a huge blessing. Because her wedding was 5 months after ours everything was happening at very different times. While we started out doing the same things, I continued on full force while she had time to focus on the details. My wedding being in the mid-summer and hers the beginning of winter also meant everything was opposite. Where I went bright, she went pastel. There was no sense of competition; there were no arguments.

The absolute best part for me was both of us being bridesmaids in each other’s wedding.

Seeing the smiles on their faces after being announced Mr. And Mrs., there just aren’t words.

Being on the other side of the wedding was perfect for me. I was able to fully engage and be her support throughout the day but also to think back on the memories of my big day just five months ago.

We laughed. We cried. They are married.

Life is good.
