Something Saturdays (7/5/14)

Did you have a good 4th of July? I actually just got some things done at home but this weekend I'll be celebrating big time! My mom's cousin has a party every year that I'm attending tonight (this is the first time I've gone in 5 years! The last time Michael and I had just started dating-like...a couple days in...and I brought him! He's working so he can't come this time but I'll just talk about him a lot to make up for it :P) and there will be fireworks and then I'll spend the night at my mom's and go to church with her in the morning and then to my grandma's for her 4th of July pool party!

Michael and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary on Wednesday by going mini-golfing and to Outback Steakhouse and then watching The Princess Bride. A pretty good day I'd say. :)

Then Thursday I got to take Michael to go see Occasions (where our reception is being held) and to discuss a few things with our on-site coordinator. Then we ended up having his dad and stepmom and my mom join us for a monthly buffet dinner they hold there (it's a great way to taste some menu items to help up make our selections come wedding time!)-I was so giddy it was ridiculous. I LOVE IT! I couldn't be more thrille to have our day there! (fun fact: earlier that day my dad came over to install our garage door opener and later on we went to Michael's mom's to hang we saw all of our parents in 1 day. We think that may be a first!)

In other news:

Elephants are my favorite. They're just the cutest.

Speaking of romaaance...I might have a few (understatement) engagement pictures to share with you :D All of these pictures are by Joe Tate of JTate Design and I LOVE them (and can't wait to see more!) (My hair and makeup are also courtesy of Beauty Therapy.) Sorry if you don't care about the pictures-just scroll on past 'em to the rest of the round up! (and don't forget to tune in on Monday for #StrawberryWeek!)
