He booked the honeymoon!

Kev and I will be spending 6 amazing nights in St. Lucia!!




At the Sandals Resort La Toc
with our own personal Butler for the ENTIRE week.
Seriously, I DIE!





Oprah Winfrey’s 5th Anniversary “Oprah Magazine” placed St. Lucia’s Pitons (the gorgeous mountains in the first photo) at #1 in the top 5 places in the world to visit in one’s lifetime.

Can I just say paradise!!
I may never come back to Kentucky after this trip.

Girls Night Out and Girls Day In

Sometimes you just need some time spent with gal pals.
Not just any gal pals...long lost college girlfriends who spent 4 of the best years of your life right beside you.

KR was outta town for a work trip one weekend and I decided to have some of my college besties up for some fun. Miss Sara and my little Anne came to spend the night and keep me company. What good company it was.

We sipped on some drinks and made our way downtown for wine and pizza at Grey Goose. They have one of my favorite patio's in Lexington. Of course this did not happen without me breaking out my tripod first. Standard.



We split an appetizer, demolished a pizza and caught up over some vino.
What was supposed to be quiet night on the town, turned into us channeling our inner 21 year old attitude and we decided we could handle hitting up the bar scene. Not our smartest idea considering there was a loss of not one, but two debit carsd. We also left a cell phone in the cab. It was the necessary call to order cheese sticks on the way home that we can blame that one on.  OOPSIE! Now don't worry, all personal belongings were returned to their rightful owner the next day. Thank goodness!!

The next day was probably my favorite part. We had originally planned on going to Keeneland since the Spring meet was still running strong. However, the weather did not cooperate that day and we felt the need to stay indoors and soak each other up.
We literally all three piled up into my king size bed, ordered Chinese food and watched season one of Sex and The City. We may or may not have even ate the Chinese food in bed. It was a perfect lazy Saturday!

Anner brought her scrapbooks from college up for a trip down memory lane.
What a trip it was.




And can we just talk about how many fraternity functions we attended that had a theme with the word "ho" involved. I think we might have been some serious skanks for about 5 seconds. hahaha, but I know we sure had a good time while doing it. Sorry Mom!


It had been way too long since the three of use had hung out together.
I think it was safe to say we made up for lost time.

Sara and Anner - i love you two to pieces and every time I think about that weekend I get the biggest smile on my face. I can't believe I am just now blogging about it. You can blame it on my wedding crazed mind.
Can we do this again soon??? 


Ahhh...what a good weekend!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the best man I know.
I will always, always be a daddy's girl.

Thank you dad for being
the provider in our family
the discipliner when I needed it
the one who always believed in me
the man who is not afraid to show his feelings
the one who sacrifices for his wife and children
so loving
strong
and
the one who always calls me your princess








Charlie and I hit the jackpot in the parents department.
Our lives are better daily because of you.

Love you daddy!

It's my Birthday!


hey y'all!

I know it's been well over a week since my last post, but sissy here has been a busy gal.
I will be back next week.

You see today is my BIRTHDAY!!!!


The big 28 and I have been celebrating with my family since yesterday.
Mama, Baby Bro, Daddy and my granny traveled to Lex to spend a few days with me and Kevin Rex.
I could not be more at peace.
Ain't nothing better than family in this gal's book.
Kev has also coordinated a birthday dinner/festivites for me late Saturday night with my besties and I am ecstatic.
I am such a lucky gal.



Happy Weekend and Happy Birthday to me!!!

a lil post on life...

The past two weeks have been rough.
Not necessarily for me, but those around me.
I lost a patient to cancer last week  that had been like family to me and it just made me think.....
that the most important things in life aren't things at all.

It's so true.

I find myself as I get older trying to stop and soak up reality every day.
I am trying to be present in every moment and always be conscientious of my many blessings.
You just never know what other people go through in life.
You never know when people could be taken away from you.
Life is so fragile and I strive to not take a single day for granted.

I love my life and I am so beyond blessed that I wake up to these three every single day
:-)









Have you counted your blessings today?

Wedding Wednesday: Our Website

We finally took the time to make our wedding website.
Kev helped me out so much typing in all the little details. I have to give the man credit, he has been plugged in and engaged every step of the way. He is such a keeper.

We created our lil wedding cyber space through TheKnot.com. I have been using The Knot website like crazy. It has had so many good tools and ideas that I have put to good use.

Our website is in the early stages and we will be updating as the big day gets closer.
Go check it out for yourself at


or click here

165 days to go.....eeeeeeeek!!!!

here is also a lil sneak peak of some more engagement photos.
The disc has over 153 images...and I am obsessed with all of them.
Can't wait to share more with y'all.

Bachelorette Party Crazeeeeeys

Last Saturday a bunch of my college gal pals and I celebrated this pretty lady's last fling before the ring.

Meet Ashley.

Oh and what a night it was!

Some of the gal's started the day off early with wine tasting and we all regrouped at our friend Amelia's house for more wine, primping and of course photos.

I was so pumped to hang out with this girl and all the others.


It had been way too long since we had a good night out on the town :-)
Just us girls.





We snapped a group photo before heading downtown for dinner at Bellini's.


We ate some Ahhmazing pasta and sipped more wine before headed out downtown Lex on our very
own party bus compliments of the bride's sister.



Meet our party bus driver.
Bless his heart for putting up with us and all our shenanigans all night long.


And it begins...

did i mention i am obsessed with this gal??!!


At our first stop on the party bus we may or may not have had a lil dance off with another bridal party. Katie brought down the house!

We managed to need a pit stop at a local gas station to get some more beverages and of course Doritos!!
OMG they were so delish! I forgot the last time I had eaten Doritos. I smelt like a big bag of chips for the rest of the night. Oopsie

Clearly the Doritos were flowing on the party bus.



We took a pit stop to our Alma Mater - good ol' Transylvania University for a scavenger hunt put together by the MOH. 
Yep, that's right. We romped through campus in our party bus on a Saturday night just like the good ol' days. It was priceless and hilarious!

While some people scavenger hunted...some of us  may or may not have hung out in the nurse's office with the CPR manikins....



And what is a Bachelorette party without a few of these...bahahaha!

  
One of Ash's scavenger hunt requirements was to take a picture with the campus police.
He was ready to murder us.ha!


We wore out our welcome at Transy pretty fast (that is putting it mildly) and our party bus took us back downtown to finish out the night.


The whole night was so much fun and i think little Ashley had a blast!
I made Kev drive me straight through Taco Bell on the way home...that just goes to show you what kind of night we had.
Love a good gal's night out!
So excited for Ashley's wedding in a couple of weeks....if this was an indicator of what is yet to come...Louisville better watch out!!
