I Vow…

FullSizeRender (3)

Guys.  I looked like a crazy person all weekend because of my non-stop happy tears, but I am beyond excited.  Ray and I are engaged!  I was totally surprised, down to the fact that I am wearing hiking boots and my shirt that says, “can’t ban these guns” with arrows pointing to my biceps in all pictures surrounding our engagement.  I know, I know… most people would say “classy” upon first viewing.  But really now…

The full story will be shared, but first, I wanted to make a few vows to you, my loyal readers.  Because you guys rock, and because I love reading your blogs.  (In the spirit of blogging community, I hope you continue to read mine, as well. 🙂 )

My vows to you, my favorite readers:

1) This will not become a crazy wedding-lady blog.  I fully intend to continue talking about workouts, recipes, fashion, and random musings.  And I intend for not all random musings to involve wedding planning.  But…

2) I will share my experiences as Ray and I travel through this journey.  Ray and I have no idea what we’re doing, so it should be hilarious and a whole lotta’ fun.  I promise to share every experience I can, either to help you in planning a big event… or just because I guarantee the majority of them will be incredibly humorous.

3) I will continue to write.  I’ve fallen in love with this blogging “thing” more than I thought I would.  Yes, it’s time consuming.  But, more importantly… it’s FUN!  If you guys promise to keep reading, then I promise to keep writing.

4) I will let you know what cake flavors we select the minute they are selected.  Get excited.

You guys rock my socks off!


What have been your favorite parts of weddings you’ve attended, either as a guest or getting married yourself?  Do you have any tips going into planning this big day?

Create a great life!

        You’ll be fine.. I look back and would do some things differently – that’s life, trends and the wisdom of time 🙂 Don’t get too hung up on it and just roll with it. It’s just one day.. it flies by and will be awesome whatever xx

    Dancing. We danced like crazy as well as our guests. A lot of that depends on the dj and we had a fabulous one who got people out there to stay. Weddings where everyone is awkwardly watching the kids dance saddens me lol. So recommend researching Djs if dancing is important to you.
    And have fun with it. I did ours in 4 months. It’s seriously only as stressful as you make it. I never was stressed or working on it all hours, it was still pretty big and pretty great. Make it fun and do what you want! Congrats!

      Nice! We have 11-12 months, so hopefully we’ll be pretty good there. (Most of Ray’s friends still play hockey, so we have to go with back half of June-anytime in July if he wants any friends there.) Did you have a wedding planner, or was there a book you guys used?

      Thanks! Like I said, I had NO idea it was coming, so I’m still kind of in shock. It should be an experience, to say the very least. 🙂

      Nice! We just narrowed it down to a specific month and a half and the state. Other than that, I guess we’ll see, haha! Got any tips??
