Tuxes

So the day has finally come.

We are going to pick out the tuxes for our wedding. Tyler has been avoiding this task like the plague. So you know what I did…I called, I made the appointment, and I told him, “We are going to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings (his favorite place..which happens to be next door to the tux shop) Saturday night” He got so excited. Then I said, “Yeah, right after we get tuxes next door at Mr. Tux.”

I’m sneaky.

I know what Tyler wants to get. He wants to wear all black with a white tie. I’m a fan of this look, and frankly, I got to pick out my dress…so he gets to pick out his ensemble.

For the groomsmen, we aren’t sure if they will wear the pink or the burgundy. I made a little mockup from David’s Bridal. The girls are wearing what our girls will wear…but the boys will either be in pink or burgundy. What do you think?

Winter Wonderland

We got soo much snow at Tyler’s house! We got out to play in it yesterday! Today is my shower at his church. They are all worried about the turn out since the weather came and all…but I know whoever comes, we will have a great time! And my mom, grandmas, and cousin came to share this day with me! I can’t wait!

So, the snow…was 6.5 inches deep!
Ty’s Mom Nancy’s horse Dundee wasn’t quite sure what to do with the snow….
I made a snow angel!
Tyler and I were out in the snow…He was having a hard time with the light reflecting off everything…The ice and snow on the trees…

Our snowman!!It was a great day! Can’t wait for my shower today! I’ll share that with you soon!


The snow/the scarf



Well, it has snowed 5.5 inches at Tyler’s house. I am so glad to be here with people, and not alone at my apartment in Fayetteville. I’ll post some snow pictures later once we bundle up and get outside.

On another, more fashionable note, Kelly’s Korner is hosting Show Us Your Life Fashion Tips today. So here is my fashion tip. Scarves. Thick ones, thin ones, knit, jersey, silk. Any type of scarf will work.

I like to buy and wear solid color clothing to dress it up. Sometimes I use fun jewelry or bright accessories, but my favorite is scarves. I like to buy cheap ones at Walmart, Target, Kohls, and TJ Maxx (or sometimes at fun mall stores like Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe) and wear them with anything. They dress anything up. I am a huge fan of those lightweight “summer” scarves and wear them all year round. I am not at home with my computer, so I could only pull some pics off facebook…but this is a sample of my scarf wearing life.

This is the scarf at the drive in. I’m wearing a sweatshirt and no makeup…but the bright pink scarf (from Walmart…$7 I think) dresses it up a bit. Notice my friend Amber is rocking a bright patterned scarf.


This is a red leopard print scarf at a Razorback game. It actually has “Hog Wild” embroidered on the bottom to show my fan spirit, but you can’t see it here. This scarf came from my fave boutique in Fay called Inscriptions on Dickson. It was a scarf splurge at about $15.

This is the zebra scarf at a Christmas party. I wanted to be comfy, so I’m wearing a black fleece shirt from Old Navy with jeans, but you can’t tell because all you see is my fun scarf! This one was $5 at a craft fair at home. Scarves are everywhere.

This is the scarf at my engagement photo session. Proof that its hot summer time (these pictures were taken August 8) and you can still rock the scarf in hot weather as long as its a thin summer scarf. This was a Walmart $5 scarf as well. The shirt also had a tie in the back, showing no matter the shirt, you can dress it up with s scarf.
Lastly, here are dressy scarves. At my first bridal shower, two of my three hostesses (Amber, Karlee, and Alden) are rocking some cute scarves from Old Navy. Amber has on a nice button up and dress pants and Alden has on a dressy turtleneck and dress capris. I got them these scarves for hostess gifts and they loved them. They were about $8 on sale at Old Navy.

Go get you some cheap scarves and dress up some outfits! For help on tying scarves different ways….look here

Happy shopping!


The crater

So I am at Tyler’s. I’m trying to get the less harsh area of this ice/snow storm they are calling for this evening.

Well, at Ty’s house, there is no guest room. So when I come, my chivalrous prince gives me his bed and he sleeps on the couch. And you see, Tyler’s bed is quite comfortable. It’s memory foam and big and warm. But it has a crater.

See..since its memory foam, over the years it has formed a Tyler size whole in the bed. Which is great for Tyler, but when I sleep in it, I fall in. And I roll around a lot…so once in the crater, I have to expound a lot of energy to roll out of it. Then it’s gravitational pull brings me back in over and over again all night long. Last night, I think I pulled something in this fight with the crater. I can hardly raise my left arm over my head because my back muscles are KILLING me.

But, I’m here for several nights. Me and the crater are going to fight. Its going to be ugly and the crater will probably win. But I’m not giving up.
