Matt and I knew that we wanted to go to an all-inclusive resort for our honeymoon, but we REALLY struggled with picking a location.  We discussed just about every resort south of Florida, but we were starting to get down to the wire on booking something, so I had no choice but to reach out to Facebook.  My friend Lindsay has absolutely raved about her honeymoon at Secrets Maroma Beach ever since she got back about 3 years ago! Not kidding, she talks about it all the time! ;) Lindsay and I have similar tastes, so I really value her opinion on a lot of things.  She gave me the number to her travel agent, and when I called he asked me what Matt and I like to do.  I said "Well, on the honeymoon we really don't want to anything, Just drink and eat." He said "Have you heard of Secrets Maroma Beach?" and I knew we were in good hands! The flight was for 5:00a.m. Sunday morning, and since we planned to party well into the night Saturday, we knew that was not an opti


I don't know where to even begin on this post!  What a CRAZY couple of weeks it has been! I reluctantly returned to work yesterday after being off since the 15th.  Wahhhhh! Although I must say that in a way, I am kind of relieved.  I know this may sound weird, but sometimes I need to go to work to get a break. I digress, back to the topic - Wedding week! Wednesday was "me day" :)  I got my hairrr did, got my nails did, went to Zumba, got a Spray Tan - I was feelin' maself!  Thursday was "décor day," so I took all of the reception décor to the hotel, and spent the evening decorating the church with a lot of help from a lot of people! (Thanks everyone!!) THEN Friday was rehearsal day!  After we sorted everything out for the wedding we were off to Sleepy Hollow for dinner.  Oh, and we arrived in style! Pastor Jeff gave us a ride in his old convertible Bentley.  SO cool!  When we got there a "Priest" was walking around quietly.  Everyone wa

Excitement Overload

You guys...I can barely contain the excitement. I felt I had to blog just to work some of it out of my system. I am currently laying outside with Ozzie trying to soak up some sun in preparation for our honeymoon trip. We will be heading to the Secrets Maroma Beach all-inclusive resort next week, and we could not be more excited! Although, I do have a feeling that that sun in Mexico is going to fry us! Oh well! I cannot believe our wedding is less than a week away. I've spent so many months planning it that part of me can't believe that the day actually exists and is here. Also, since I've had so many months to plan, there's nothing left to do! T hat's kinda awesome, but also kinda driving me crazy! I feel like I should be running around like a hairspray model in a candle shop, but instead I am lounging by the pool and taking naps! I keep asking people to tell me what I'm missing or overlooking because it just doesn't seem right! But I'm not complaining,


We are 17 days away from the wedding, and I don't know if life can possibly get any more chaotic.  I shouldn't have said that... May was both insane and fabulous! The month started with my Cupcakes and Cocktails Bridal Shower at Fireside, and it was absolutely perfect! I told my bridesmaids that I wanted it to be "industrial urban chic," and while none of us REALLY knew what that meant, they somehow managed to knock it out of the park!  Since some of my bridesmaids live out of town (and by "out of town" I mean New York and London) we decided to do a bachelorette night out in Charleston that same evening so that everyone could come.  As with most nights out, there were a few mishaps, but the mishaps are what make the awesome stories. ;) That's all I'm going to say about that... This weekend we took it a step further, and headed to "The Big Apple" for Part II of bachelorette festivities! Tara, Jess, Brittany, Amber, and I all piled in
