Lets play Ketchup....

I mean catch-up...

As I'm sure you've figured out... We're Married!
Actually yesterday was our 1 month anniversary. It feels likes yesterday. It was amazing and if you'd like to see more you can visit our AmAzING photographer's blog. We were also featured on Once Wed and our uber talented wedding planner has something else up her sleeve... fingers crossed.

Anywho, to describe my feelings over the last ewww 6 months, I will just say it's been a ride.

Kind of like a fly stuck on the windshield of a car driving 80 miles per hour down the freeway.

So much CHANGE, all for the good though. We're loving life and everything that's being thrown our way. Let's just say there's no end in sight...
well maybe...
in like 2 years.

Mr.R has accepted a GREAT job with an AWESOME company and we will be heading to Vermont next week. We'll be moving every six months for the next 2 years. Which means I will be doing A LOT of styling, every six months to be exact, which excites me.

I hope to document our journey here.

It's very bittersweet to know that we are putting 12 hours between us and our family and friends, but we know that this is the opportunity of a lifetime and we've diving in head first.

Buckle your seat belts... We're about to take-off!

This might get SLOPPY..... Joe

I like nights when I come home from work and dinner is ready in 30
I don't know about you but it seems there is never enough time in the day to get everything done
And boy does the evening FLY by

This ones quick, easy, and YUMMO!

I fried up some hamburger 

And made my own Sloppy Joe mix 
with a little Ketchup, brown sugar, and yellow mustard

I used canned biscuits and pushed them down into a muffin pan

forming a little pocket of dough 

Then I spooned the sloppy joe mixture into the biscuit pockets

Sprinkled some cheddar cheese on top 

And popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 mins


There you have it

Joe's sloppy biscuits

Debunking the MYTHS

Back when I got engaged (August 1, 2009) I thought for a (brief) moment about the amount of work that would be involved. I thought about all the decisions I would be making, the fun I would have making them, and how beautiful it would be in the end. 

But what I didn't think much about was the memories that would be made along the way. After all this is a journey. I never imagined the opportunities I would have through the wedding planning process or the ideas that would pop in to my brain.

As many of you know, who have read this blog, my mom and I are BF's. We've always been close. Yes, we have the occasional mother-daughter spat but for the most part we see eye to eye. However, the thought of planning a wedding with your mother- your best friend, sounded kind of scary. 

Every piece of advice I'd been given and everything I'd heard was the dreaded "Be prepared for the knock down drag out with your mom," a thought that quite honestly made me want to RUN very quickly to Vegas.

I'm here to debunk the myths girls, it can be done. It's possible to plan the wedding of your dreams and avoid severing the mother- daughter relationship. The conflict can be avoided. Yes, we're still roughly 3 months out, but I have to tell you, we've not once had the knock down drag out. I could NOT do this without her. 

 When our vintage rental vendor ditched us and I totally panicked, became BRIDEZILLA, mom and Liz convinced me we could handle it; we'd scout out everything we were planning to rent and we'd buy it. S.I.M.P.L.E. YEAH RIGHT!! It would be ours to KEEP. 

I could never have imagined how much fun mom and I would have junkin'. We've made many trips and found some AMAZING pieces. I can't wait to share pics. 

Thanks mom for all that you've done to make this EXACTLY what I want and more fun than I could ever have imagined.  I appreciate it more than you'll ever know.

We had a nice trip to Charleston this weekend
It was quick.
I think we spent the same amount of time in the car as we did in Charleston.

These are the doors to the beach house we'll be renting the week of the wedding. 
It's Amazing!
We met up with the girls (Liz and Meg) at Starbucks
 early Saturday morning to knock out some final details.

I managed to sneak in enough time to get my hair and make-up done.
A little trial run for the wedding.
I feel really silly in this picture.

I usually don't wear much make-up so I feel very "done up" so to speak.
Not to mention I am in SERIOUS need of a tan!
I'm not 100% positive I'll follow through with this look for the wedding day.

We shall see.

I thought I was going to escape the snow at least for the weekend.
I thought WRONG!
I managed to snap this photo as the sun was coming up on our way into town on Saturday.
I hope you'll had a WonderFul Tuesday. 
It felt like a Monday for me.
 I didn't have to work yesterday.

A L.O.V.E.ly Weekend

Via Snippet&Ink

I have a confession...
I LOVE the color RED

We'll be having a reception at a beautiful B&B in our hometown

A few weeks after our wedding

I'm hoping to sneak in a little PUNCH of color

It's just so darn vibrant and fun!

I hope you all have a L.O.V.E.ly  Valentine's Day

We'll be spending it in Charleston, where apparently we will not be escaping the snow

Wishful thinking ;)
