Right around the corner

In two days I get to marry this man...

I am so excited to marry my best friend!  We met our freshman year of college at the University
of Alabama.  My sorority and his fraternity were paired up for Greek Week and we immediately
became friends.  Little did I know that seven years later he would be the man I get to call my husband.

He is the most caring person I know and has an amazing ability to make me laugh and remember
that it's the little things in life that make it so memorable.  I am incredibly blessed.

So, here is making a lifetime of memories with my soon-to-be husband.
I can't wait to begin our lives together!

Before + After Dining Table

In the midst of all of the wedding madness I was able to find some time to paint my
dining room table - finally!  So, here are some pictures detailing this sweet little
table's journey from ugly duckling to beautiful swan...Enjoy!

Here is the before...

(Don't mind the fact that I accidentally started taking photos of it after I had already primed the base)

Poor girl needed some help.

So, help her I did and transformed her into this pretty little lady...

So much better, right?  The color is the same as my coffee table - Martha
Stewart's Sharkey Gray.  I know there are several other pieces that I need to
work on, but I won't tackle that until after our honeymoon!
Have you tranformed a piece of furniture recently?

Bad Blogger + Wedding Details

I know, I know...I've been a bad blogger :(
Wedding planning has completely taken over my life, but now that the wedding is less than
two weeks away (eeek!) things are starting to settle down and everything is coming together!

So, here are a few updates on our wedding :)

This is the dress I selected for our sweet bridesmaids...

It is the J. Crew Silk Taffeta Blakely Dress in 'Aged Driftwood'.  Swoon!
All three of my girls picked this little gem out - I absolutely can't wait to see them in it!

We picked out these beauties as our invitations...

We both completely fell in love with these invitations.  We knew we didn't want the same
ol' cookie cutter invitations that we've seen 100 times.  We wanted ones that were different
and incorporated our style.  We added the floral backing to our invitations, too. And the color
was perfect since we are using mint green, coral, greens, ivory and other natural tones.
We knew they were perfect for us!

I've been working on a few wedding projects and post those soon!
Thanks for hanging in there with me while all this craziness has been going on!
Y'all are the best :)
