The First Look

I’m back!! Blogging has been really difficult to fit into our crazy schedules between Carson’s work (seriously, he got home from work at 5am the other day and was up at 9am again) and my classes and graduate assistantship but I’m here and I want to share all about our first look today. We chose to do something slightly different for our first look because before I saw Carson I had a first look with my dad. This was something that was really important to me because I feel like I’m equal parts a daddy’s girl and a momma’s girl. I even considered having both of my parents walk me down the aisle but in the end I decided that the aisle would be too squished and that we didn’t walk to take away the importance of the moment from pop.   And it was time for first look round number 2! I’m so glad that we were able to do a first look because it was nice to get that first moment alone together …

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!! I am so excited for this weekend and all of our plans. Not going to lie, on Saturday we’re going to see Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in concert so obviously one of my favorites today has to be Harry Potter related. Linking up with Amanda, April, Karli, Katie, Erika and Monica today. Book: YES. So excited to have Harry Potter back in my life, even if it is in play format. Now I just have to wait for them to bring it to the U.S.! Show: Jane the Virgin. One of my best friends loves this show and has been telling me to watch it for a really long time…so I finally did it and am on Season 2 already. So obsessed and in love. It is hilarious and has lots of plot twists. Recipe: These Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps from the Cheesecake factory. Absolutely delicious!! You can find the recipe here. I’m obsessed. Pretty sure I’ll be eating them every day for at least the next month, sorry hubby. Product: A spa …

The Guys Get Ready

Before I jump into todays post I wanted to share my excitement with you all about the fact that one of my sisters got engaged while on her trip to Thailand!! I am so incredibly happy for her and can’t wait to see what the future holds for their family. I feel like this also means that I now definitely have to go to Cali to visit ASAP, right?! It seems like the second round of wedding season is almost upon us because we have a lot of friends and family getting married in just a few short months which makes me even more excited to share about our wedding day. Since last week I talked about the girls, it’s only fair that this week I talk about the guys! It’s amazing how much more time the guys had than the gals when it came to this whole wedding thing. All they had to do was show up at the venue dressed and ready to go about two hours beforehand. Lucky ducks. Due to the …

The Girls Get Ready

Does anyone else feel like the days just fly by?! Where does the time go? We have almost been married for two entire months and that’s pretty crazy! Today I thought that I would share some of my thoughts about the getting ready process and some photos. The night before my wedding I wasn’t able to go to bed until around 1:30pm which I know is a big no-no, oops. Usually I need a solid 9 hours to not be a savage beast in the morning but I ended up waking up at 7am unable to go back to sleep because of nerves. The nerves were all due to the fact that I’m not very good in front of large crowds (elopment never looked so good…kidding!). Getting up so early had it’s perks – I was able to swing by Starbucks and embarrass myself by asking for a cup that said “Bride” and get to the hair salon to keep track of the hair schedule and send the girls on their way to the venue. …

Friday Favorites

I can’t believe it’s already Friday – this week flew by! I’m linking up with Amanda today since I haven’t done my favorites in what feels like forever! Favorite TV Show: The hubby (eek! still get excited just from saying it) and I recently finished binging Raising Hope which originally I didn’t think I would like. But as with 99% of shows that he suggests, I ended up loving it. Basic plot: the main character has a child with a serial killer before he knows who she is and then when she gets executed he gets stuck with the baby and figuring out how to raise her with the help of his crazy family and friends. It’s hilarious, cute, lighthearted and quirky (plus it has a great ending!!). Favorite Summer Outfit: I’m 100% a fan of casual clothing, especially in the summer and this outfit is a perfect everyday kind of look. Minus the ripped shorts. I don’t know why but I’ve never been able to get behind that trend even though I like how …

The Photobooth

Happy Wedding Wednesday! We have now gotten our wedding photos and our video so we’re only waiting on the albums and raw footage which is super exciting. The first time I saw a photobooth at a wedding was 3 years ago at a friends wedding and I thought it was the cutest idea ever so of course we had to have one! Our photographer designed the photostrips for us which turned out amazing! We also opted to not get a physical copy of the photostrips so there would be more for our guests..and really, it’s much more space efficient to have digital files! Because of all of the craziness, Carson and I only were able to use it once but our guests did really enjoy it which was the entire point! Below you will find some of my favorites from the night.  

First Month as the Wright’s

Our one month anniversary was yesterday! I can’t believe that it has already been an entire month since we got married. I’ve been horrible about blogging the past few months but now that things have settled down considerably I am planning on jumping right back in with recaps of the last days of planning, the wedding and honeymoon coming soon. In the meantime, let’s recap our first month as man and wife! We woke up bright and early the day after the wedding to head to the airport and jet off for our much needed honeymoon. We had a wonderful week in paradise (aka Jamaica) and all too soon had to head home. I have now successfully changed my name now (even though it took two trips to the Social Security Office and two hours at the MVA) and we have combined all of our bank accounts. We still have 5 moving boxes in our living room but that’s a huge improvement because we couldn’t walk in our living room at all when we got …
