Brain Dump

On the wedding front...things are moving right along! We will be getting married in Wilmington, NC on May 30, 2014!

As much as I enjoy looking at can be a bit overwhelming.  It is equally amusing as I've come across some really strange wedding ideas. (Camo wedding bands, hunting save the dates "the hunt is over!", and plenty of lame "He stole my heart, so I stole his last name!" type stuff).

I'm in the process of working on a wedding website and finishing up our registries. So those things will be checked off soon.  I've been really surprised to find that there's not that much to do early on besides picking a date and venue.  I keep feeling like I need to be doing more but there's so much that you can't do until closer to the date.

I've been loving I love Southern Weddings Magazine.  Can't get enough.

I'm heading down to NC this weekend to go wedding dress shopping.  I can't wait to spend a few days with my family.  The following weekend we will be heading up to TG's lake house with friends to celebrate Memorial Day.  It will be so nice to finally get some sun. My skin is so very pale at this point. Fortunately, Chicago is supposed to really warm up (hopefully for good) tomorrow!  If I've learned anything about this city it's that you've got to take advantage of every single day during the summer. Winter is no joke up here.

As with any trip down to NC, there will be eastern NC barbeque...Anne's donuts...and a trip to Furbish.


  1. ahh Anne's Doughnuts, you can't go wrong there. And I adore I Love Southern Weddings mag!

  2. If you need a photographer check out Jenn Hopkins Photography. I also think you would love Bella bridesmaid. Not sure if you have one near you.

  3. North Carolina will be happy to have you back for a little while :) So glad to hear everything is going well! And yay for Wilmington being your wedding site!

  4. I love Wilmington! We were thinking of it too but we are thinking of a fall wedding and hurrican season makes me nervous.
