Hello dolls and happy (belated) Thanksgiving! I hope y'all enjoyed a big fat meal with your families like we did- first Thanksgiving officially as husband and wife! ♥♥. My family didn't have any kind of dinner this year because my mom and my mawmaw cooked everything we ate at the wedding, so they were too tired to make a dinner for Thanksgiving too. So Josh's mom held a dinner and had us a big ole' fried turkey with lots of amazing homemade goodies!

Is it just me or does my dress scream *turkey feathers*!? As soon as I saw this dress in Ross, I said, "hmm, this would be a perfect Thanksgiving dress!" ;D Also, my scarf actually has sequins on it, but it was almost impossible to photograph them! I got it from Claires in Savannah- basically my favorite accessories store ever (even though the only girls I see in there are like.. 12..haha)!

I took these photos right when the wind started gusting at 20 mph and the temperature had dropped to 30 degrees!! My eyes were watering, my nose was running, and I was freezing! I took these in between our house and our wood fence, so basically it was like a breezeway of freezing cold wind. I ended up taking around 200 photos just trying to adjust myself between each shot. That's what the photo is above- me throwing my coat back on while the wind was going nuts! But I actually liked that photo;). Oh the things I do for this blog.. haha! XOXO

These photos are from our honeymoon in Ellijay along the road/river that led to our cabin. The scenery was so gorgeous that Josh offered to stop and take outfit photos for me.. (definitely married the right guy)! My outfits were more comfortable than cute because I was bloated. I got this dress from Ross many months ago, but I've worn it only a handful of times because it's a bit too short. It's the softest/stretchiest lace I've ever felt and I love it. Now that cold weather has come again, I'm finally able to throw on some leggings with it and go. It's such a pretty go-to dress these days.

Just as we were leaving this spot, we spotted some deer casually grazing in front of a home. We rolled the windows down and snapped a few photos of them, but this one was my favorite. I think it's so cute how deer are obviously curious about everything.

We're Married!

leaning to kissfirst kiss hubby and wife!
Just wanted to give you guys a super short update to say we are married!! The day was so magical. The weather was absolutely gorgeous- not one single cloud in the sky and the temperature was just right. It's the wedding I've always dreamt of, and I can't believe I can actually say that my day was one of the best days of my life. I was so.. calm. Extremely calm. I had no nerves leading to the day of, and I even slept really well the night before! The morning of the wedding I woke up at 8am, fixed my makeup perfectly (that NEVER happens) and just soaked everything in. I met up with my MOH at my aunt's salon, where she rolled my hair in hot rollers for the very first time. When she took them out and teased my hair, it literally looked like hair you would see on a fairytale princess! Everything went so smoothly the day of. I just couldn't belive it. God gave me such incredible peace and made everything fall together just the way it was meant to happen. My wedding day was the first peaceful day I've ever had in my entire life. I was able to fully soak in the day instead of worrying about anything. I remember walking down the aisle with my brother and just smiling and giggling. And when I looked at Josh.. ahhh!! I smiled sooo big (I'm smiling right now lol!) and giggled. I didn't even shed a single tear! The only thing that went wrong at the wedding was I had a boob malfunction with my dress (haha!). I'd unexpectedly lost weight around my chest and that ended up making boob part of my dress too big! Sonya (our photographer) grabbed pins and ties from everywhere she could find to try to help keep the top up haha. Luckily we haggled it into staying in place until the reception, where I tied on a cardigan and wore it the rest of the night. Speaking of our photographer- I'll have the professional photos back in 4-6 weeks and I can hardly stand myself haha! So here's just three photos that were caught on our day by a few family members with their cellphones. The first two is our first kiss as husband and wife (eep!) and the second was my brother walking me down the aisle. I also have one more posted on my Instagram, and it's of our first dance! If you're wondering, we danced to "I Could Not Ask For More" by Edwin Mccain. Total 90s buffs haha. Wish I could give you a better look at us, but you'll have to wait (like me!) for the pro photos!!
