Well, well, well. What have we been doing these past few weeks?
This might be the longest hiatus the blog has yet seen, and I assure you we have no good excuses. Jamey might, since he’s been on the road quite a bit the past couple weeks, which is why I’m getting this post in now before he gets home and is an evening distraction once more. (See you soon, honeybunch!) Still, we’ve had some notable developments that are worth noting in the wedding planning and life planning arena, in general:
1. My dress came in! I made a whirlwind trip home this past weekend, which resulted in a 6 a.m. flight out to Atlanta Saturday morning and a 9 a.m. flight back into Charleston on Sunday. However, the 27-hour trip was fruitful; my mom and I scooted off to the alterations lady, giving her ample time to have the dress altered and ready by the Monday before the big day (keeping my fingers crossed that all goes to plan).
2. Jamey and I became godparents! We mentioned this activity over Labor Day weekend, I still think it was pretty special. I’ve never been an aunt before, so the fact that Jamey and I are now beholden to a little baby niece until she is a grown-up is pretty cool. We even got a fun photo of the Monaclan:
The whole enchilada. Props to my dad for taking this pic!
Say hi to Jamey and Jamey doll!
We got in to the Lake Oconee area late Saturday night and have been having a grand old time with our families. Jamey and I even became Godparents!
We return to Charleston tomorrow, and then my bachelorette festivities start Saturday night. 48 days, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Hope y’all are having a lovely Labor Day weekend!
After the hurricane throwdown Friday night, Jamey and I packed up the car Saturday morning to hit the road for the Highlands for Mary and Cameron’s wedding.
It all started off well. The car was packed, we got on road at a good time, and we had enough newly Pandora playlists for a bad singalong. Of course, all came crashing briefly to a halt when this happened:

You guys, we have something very important to announce (no, I have not yet bought The Dress or designed the invitations or any of the important stuff like that, but…): we booked the honeymoon!
Coco Plum Island, Belize - the view when we arrive!
As predicted, we did spend our weekend lounging and basking in the sunkissed sand of Pawleys. What a glorious weekend it was.

It might be a little difficult for us today to get back in the groove, but work and the week calls. Lucky you who have the day off!
Still, it was a relaxing and much needed escape to the beach house, and I can’t wait to go again.

It’s been a long week for us, so we’re doing what any sane couple living in Charleston is probably going to do this weekend: we’re escaping to the beach and relishing in the springtime weather.
This is probably how we will spend the majority of our weekend.
This weekend is our continuation of our Valentine’s Day holiday, but we’ll be sure to update you on our glorious adventures and meals out – when we’re not lying on the beach getting tan, reading and napping.
This weekend, we made a quick trip back to Madison to sort out details surrounding our impending nuptials. Hopefully, we’ll be able to soon announce our official wedding plans, but in the meantime we’re keeping it under wraps until things are official official. (This doesn’t mean that we won’t answer questions surrounding said details; we – or at least I – will gab quite willingly if you are so curious.)
Along with those errands, we also took a little time today to check out Jamey’s sister’s (gorgeous) new house and to play with his nephews.

It was a gorgeous weekend for family, wedding ideas, and in its bittersweet moments, missing Georgia.
The 70-degree temperatures were also a pretty big plus.
