I have wanted us to have a blog for a while now, but just haven’t taken time time to create one! I just started my Master’s in Technology and as an assignment we had the choice to create a blog….so I thought….what a great opportunity? I started this blog to talk about mine and Dave’s life. It’s hard to remember all the memories and moments that happen day to day so I thought this would help.
As most of you know, Dave proposed on December 26th at the Corey Smith concert. It was the best day of my life knowing that I would spend the rest of my life with the man of my dreams!! Since December so much has happened. We have been wedding planning like crazy for our big day…July 11th!!
As soon as we became engaged I immediately called my old church in Greer. Well, after much drama and tears with that church we are now getting married at Berea First Baptist in Greenville, SC. I am so excited to be getting married in a church that loves Dave and I unconditionally and is absolutely beautiful 🙂
Once we booked the church we booked our reception site (the sawmill) and the photographer (john gillespie). We found John on the Internet and drove to the mountains one night to meet him and absolutely loved his work…check out his website…he is wonderful~!! Then, on to my favorite part-my dress!! I spent one day driving around Greenville with the best friend in the world, Jenni. She patiently watched me try on dress after dress. I finally found my dress at Dimitra’s and all in the same day I ordered my dress, shoes, and veil. I really did not want a veil but my Mom and Jenni convinced me this is the only day I will ever wear a veil again. So, I gave in. I’m just not a big fan of the way they look, but oh well. I’m wearing one! Surprisingly, in the same day I also picked out my bridesmaid dresses with the help of Jenni and Liz. They are simple and very cute. I decided to use a granny smith apple green color. I chose this color because I thought it would look good with pink, green, and white flowers. I hope my girls like them although I’m sure they will never wear them again….sorry girls!
Then onto on the hardest decision yet….do we buy a new house, do we sell Dave’s, do we get my dad to build us a house, do we buy a used house, on and on and on…..Well after months of looking at houses and land to build a house on we have decided to stay in Dave’s home. It’s a really cute two br. one bath house in Greenville near Furman. He bought the house two years ago and it is precious! We are now in the process of painting the entire inside of the house (which has not been a good experience…..the color i picked for our bedroom turned out teal green!). I loved the color on the swatch but hate it on the walls…go figure! Dave said I was just trying to act like a Diva? What does that mean?? hah! Next month we are going to start remodeling the bathroom and then the kitchen. Thank goodness for a dad that works in the construction business b/c I know nothing about construction projects!! Most of all I want our house to feel like a home. I have lots of ideas I want to incorporate into our house. Most of all I want it to be a place Dave and I can come home to and feel relaxed and at ease! Just what we need.
As of now, were trying to decide on paint colors, someone to bake our wedding cake, and scheduling shower dates with friends! OH yea and my bachelorette party which is coming up in May…..the girls are headed to Charlotte….watch out NC!! Most of all….Charleston watch out….the boys from TR are coming to you…..I would leave 😉
