wedding wednesday!

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

 another wedding post! finally!
(and yes, thanks to photoshop and my awesome skills, i made my own wedding wednesday pic with my actual ring. go me!)

i met with a wedding coordinator today and she was awesome. (i will reveal her after theres a signed contract!) not only is she a ZTA (!!) but but she got me, what i wanted and knew exactly the direction we are going in for the wedding within 20 mins. it was awesome! she's even helped us in booking the venue already! (i haven't been able to get in touch with them in a LONG time!) as soon as we book the venue, we need to book a photographer, and i'll feel like we finally are really having a wedding! im getting way excited! i know once we have an official date i can finally (officially) ask my bridal party, start looking at dresses (not that i dont already have a file full of them!) flowers, decor, bands.. the list goes on! im trying to not get ahead of myself, but i am so excited!

thats all wedding related news for now! stay tuned!!

a few things i hate about facebook.

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

these are my opinions, and my opinions only. if you have a problem with something i may mention, im sorry, but we are all adults here.
(via google images)
  1. when people link their facebook/twitter/tumblr/whatever social network together. i dont need to see the same damn thing posted everywhere more than once-- especially when it shows up twice back-to-back in my feed. annoying!
  2. and yes, while i am very excited that your expecting, i really can't stand the 'baby's progress' app that you install and when it shows up on my feed, i really am not interested in the fact that your baby is the size of a grapefruit. as long as the baby is healthy, thats all i care about. and yes. i blocked it.
  3. naked photos of your kids on facebook. this is the internet people. think about it.
  4. people who change their status more than once an hour. we don't care what your doing 24/7. facebook is a great tool to keep in touch, not stalk you. and if you depend so much on the internet, shouldn't you be worried about a lack of friends and real relationships? maybe go for a walk?
and a special #5.
this has little to do with facebook except for the fact that this information is relayed to me via the fb.
there is a special place in hell for people who BEG others to donate money to pay your vet bills, when you then turn around and BUY A HOUSE and a fancy SUV. maybe you should get your priorities straight. i don't know about you, but people who are selfish to this extent are absolutely disgusting. i can't even imagine how you sleep at night.

how's that for a tuesday post?

my 1st attempt at event planning.

Sunday, May 22, 2011

this is one of the reasons i've been so busy lately!
i helped a client plan and coordinate her and her husband's 10th anniversary party! it was a surprise for him, so we got to use code in emails, and keep our mouths shut! it was so much fun planning, and they (kevin and susan) had a great time! i coordinated everything-- from the food, to the decor-- the only things i didn't do was book the band (Kelly Willis!) and their ride (a Blackhorn Bus!). All the vendors were so easy to work with and I hope to work with them again! (Thanks Marquee Rents, The Best Wurst, Central Market, and Rock and Roll Rentals!!)

we only hit a few snags.. one underestimating the amount of help (thank you SO much CL. you saved the day! i couldn't have done it without you!) and the other being the rain. it was supposed to be an outdoor party, but mother nature decided moments before the party started to absolutely downpour. CL and I had to rush to get most of the stuff into the clubhouse. What a nightmare! We had just spent the better half of the afternoon meticulously setting everything up, lighting candles, hanging birds.. and it was all wiped out in a moment! boo. luckily we had a photographer there to take pics of everything before we moved it all inside!

here are a few pics i snagged off my phone, i wish i would have had time to take a few more, but when we get them from the photographer i'll post them!

 the uhaul with just the rentals from marquee.. when we were done with everything it was packed!!

 all done and set up.. moments before...

 the downpour :(

YUMMM!! best wurst!!

 everyone inside dancing to the band!

 signs i made.. there was one for the keg too!

everyone watching the slideshow.. it was so cute!

CL and I have spent the rest of the weekend poppin' advil (my back is KILLING me!) and relaxing! he now is totally on board for hiring a wedding planner!!

hope you all had a great weekend!

oh ps. so much for the rapture, huh?

what i've been up to lately.

Friday, May 20, 2011

sorry i have been so MIA lately. i know you are all losing sleep over my lack of posting. (haha)

luckily i've just been super busy and not given up on this blog. i just haven't had a moment to myself where i felt a nap was less superior than posting. i'll try and catch you all up!

the end of april, colbys grandma came to visit.. which sparked the 'lets get both families together to meet dinner'. it was wonderful. it made our engagement seem to much more real to have all the family together. we had a private dinner at hudson's on the bend (YUM)and it really was a lovely evening. we even capped off the weekend with brunch at abel's on the lake.

my mom came up for mother's day and we spent that friday looking at wedding venues. i never realized that all the places i knew i would love, i hated. and it's been a much harder path to find the perfect place. but as it would seem, the second to last place we 'quick ran in to look at' would have been 'the one'.im not saying where, but (if and) when there is a contract and a date, i'll maybe let you know!

(sorry this is all over the place)

my cousins and aunt from florida had a wedding in buda so naturally we had to see them! it was so fun to have them all in austin even if it was only for the evening! we all met up at the dogwood for a few drinks, then headed to shakespeares. it definitely was a great night!

game day was awesome!! if you did not read any of my BvB posts (shame on you!) you missed out! the weather was perfect and duh, BLONDES WON! (there will be a whole post on our win as soon as the pics are posted!) it was such a great experience and i can't wait 'til next year! i jammed my finger, which sucks, but it was totally worth it. Yay blondes!!

ok, i promise to be better about posting from here out! i am not nearly as busy now!

ACL Live Taping- Mumford and Sons

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

i have some pretty cool friends.
Colby and I got hooked up the other week with two tickets to the ACL Live Taping of Mumford and Sons at the new Moody Theater at the W Hotel.
It was amazing.
(thanks Tyler! your the best!!)


this is something CL and I have talked about getting to do since we have been together. it was such a great show and even better experience. seeing the band in such an intimate setting was surreal. we are in the front row, so look for us when it airs!

wedding wednesday!

i got nothing. haha. we still haven't planned much of anything, BUT we are looking at photographers, venues, and attire!

since i have nothing, check out michelle and eddie's same day edit of their wedding video! see if you can find me!
