NorCal gorgeousness

Living in the south my entire life, the weather here is taking some getting used to! Most days are gorgeous but some are so foggy you can barely see your hand in front of your face.  Either way, it's fun, it's different... We lucked out a couple weekends ago when we went hiking down in Big Sur, it was warm and clear out. and it's always a plus that this area of California has some of the most breathtaking landscape I have ever seen.  The first time E drove me down Hwy 1 I literally could not stop gasping and saying "wowwww". Seriously, that's all I could say.. after 20 minutes of wow-ing I made a conscious effort to stop, or pick another word but I literally couldn't.. just uncontrollable, non-stop, wow's. There's no word that would do it justice so pictures will have suffice. But even still, pictures can't compare to real life Hwy 1!
don't step back, cutes!
Happy california cows! nom

10 days til my favorite holiday!

well... about 10 days before any holiday, I will tell you it's my favorite.. but... I think that Halloween and thanksgiving are the ultimate grand supreme holidays.  Halloween because I love dressing up and start thinking about my costume at least 6 months in advance.  And thanksgiving is my other ultimate fave on account of I get to spend time with all my cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents etc... and this is when we usually take our Christmas card pic. and christmas card picture day is always a great day, laughing, crying, fussing... not as much crying now that we have grown up but definitely lots of fussing and laughing.

While we were in college we road tripped to see each other at least once a month. I was either driving north to UGA or her south to FSU.  and there was never a dull moment! can't wait to be reunited! eeeeeek! and it will be the Ga/Fl football weekend, we usually met in Jacksonville for that but we will watch it here and hope the gators go down! wooo I freaking lovvve college football!!!

back in the blog...

Hey! Well we have been married for over a month now, honeymooned, drove cross country in a Penske truck, house hunted and are just now getting settled in our place...  I will do separate blogs for all those adventures when I have some more time!

Big Sur
E has Friday and Monday off so we are going down to Big Sur to camp! I'm so excited for our first big Cali adventure...

Oh and BIG exciting news!

My sister and I at the bridal shower she gave me!

Sooo.. I have been a little emotional these past few days... that lovely premenstrual epidemic that makes you burst in to tears.. or a fit of rage or a chocolate binge or just an afternoon nap... (for me at least..) when I was doing the dishes and my sister called me. I was so happy to hear her voice when she started to tell me that her and her BF were trying to come visit for her bday in a couple weeks but her bf couldn't get in touch with me (I just got a new phone/number) and he wanted it to be a surprise for her... Well anyways I heard they were going to come but now they can't because of how much the flight prices went up.

accidental pose-ness

Being my totally unstable and crazy-girl time of month mixed with being family/friendsick and not to mention we have celebrated our birthday's together our entire lives (well my entire life) I became very upset.. right there at the kitchen sink I burst in to tears. lost all control - hysterical.  She tries to calm me down before having to go back to work and it helped a bit.... About an hour later she calls back and says, "I'm flying to San Fran..." me, trying not to get my hopes up remained calm and asked when and then she said "for my birthdayyy!!" so of course I started my hysterics again but this time it was a happy hysterical not a pathetic, sad hysterical.  yayy!! can't wait to see her!!! words can't even express

 how excited I am for my very first guests!


Wednesday before the Wedding!

Morning blog friends! I've been staying with my mom, step-dad and lil bro this week... taking care of last minute wedding things and enjoying all the home cooked meals and family time! 

last night at dinner my brother was "insulting" me and said, "You look like a zebra... and THAT is REALISTIC!!" hahah. what does that mean?? Also, today he begged me to play Mario Kart with him and when I started winning he was so mad
he said: "I'm calling the police on you"
me: "yeah? what are you going to say?"
bro: "That my sister is driving me INSANE!"

me with little bro! at the farm house!
well - can't really put anything off today! Going to the post office, need lots of stamps for all the thank you's i need to be writing from my shower last weekend... got to pack for Hawaii and make sure E packs too! I already made detailed lists for both of us.. mine is three times as long... going to do a trial run hair-do with my veil.... the soon to be in-laws are coming in tonight and possibly E so hopefully we will all have a minute to visit! happy Wednesday everyone!!


one week from today.....

I will be married! I am so looking forward to no more wedding planning.... It has been fun BUT... always a but... I need to be freed of this overwhelming world of wedding decisions.... what flowers, colors, bridesmaid dresses, linens, square or circle cake tiers, regular bouquet, throw bouquet, music, tuxes, bridal party gifts, chairs, registries, food, drinks, venue, invitations, hotels.......... ahhhh. 7 days. closer to 6. Let's pray for good weather. aka. overcast and breezy! rain rain go away... unless you want to come around 3pm and let up around 5... that would be great.  but then not too much sun or humidity. haha. this is North Fla. wishful thinking?  here's my pretty, shady venue... http://goodwoodmuseum.org/

Besides not having wedding plans I am looking forward to 8 days in Hawaii with my favoritest scar head! and more importantly a long and happy life, marriage, lots of (or maybe not a lot of) lil kiddies!
Beautiful Oahu Beach and a map of the Island!  I loveeee maps (and I know I will love the island)!!

E is in New Orleans for his Bach party right now and I just received an illegal phone call. I'm guessing his Bachelor Squad (as they named themselves... not bachelor party or groomsmen thankyou) took his phone away :( ruuuuuude! so he just called me from a BS members phone and we chatted for a sec before another member of BS took the phone away, screamed I love you and hung up! just glad this will all be over with tomorrow!

I had my last bridal shower today given to me by the ladies in my dad's sunday school class... It was soo nice! I got to have a sleepover with my cousin fri night where we watched all the new Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta episodes! We went through the letters we used to write back and forth as kids! soooo funny!! My sister wrote something like: My fish, Gwen, is pregnant. then she drew a picture of a pregnant fish and all these baby fishies whose names included Lurch and Tree (my faves).. how do you draw a pregnant fish?!

I got to see my lil flower girl today... she is in the terrible two's right now and her fave word is "no". No to everything. Hopefully she won't say no when it comes to sprinkling flowers down the aisle... I wouldn't even be mad though... she is the CUTEST! here she is with flowers in her hair! I have another lil cousin who is a bit older who will, hopefully, be a help with this one!

Night night all! Enjoy your Sunday :)


wednesday night and all is well!

Happy Wednesday! Thanks to all you new followers for leaving me sweet comments on my beginning blog!
E and I were so busy today making final plans on the honeymoon... picking the ceremony and reception music.. talking with my photogs who are so great (http://www.smittenphotos.com/blog/).. emailing my WONDERFUL wedding
planner (John Gandy Events) ..when I think he is with another bride it makes me a little jealous.. is that bad??... While E was on base doing necessary out-processing to get us to Cali in a timely manner, I went honeymoon shopping! :) I went to the outlet mall in Destin where they had amazing sales on summer clothes since all their new stuff is for fall! OMG I could have cried over all the beautiful things at Saks... but I practiced remarkable self control and shopped for bathing suits at VS, dresses, tops, and accessories at Banana Republic and a few accessories at Old Navy. Some GREAT finds!

 Suit I got from VS - but in turquoise... It is magically padded... Don't think it's practical for snorkeling or other water activities seeing as how I just might sink to the bottom when the padding fills with water! ha!

I have also been looking for a high-waisted two piece vintage-y suit with no luck... anyone know where to find a super cute one?!

sooo yeah - still homeless... Living in a hotel room for this week, E keeps it SO COLD and with all my winter wardrobe being locked away in a storage unit I had to revert to his flight suit as my only warm apparel...

Ok - night night bloggers! here's to keeping warm on this humid, 84* night in FLA!



Just the beginning!

Hello blog world! This is my very first blog and I am so excited! I have sooo much going on in this hectic month of August! I moved out of my apt. I graduated from Florida State University this past weekend (go noles!) My man arrived home safely on Sunday from Afghanistan (wooooooooohooooooooooooo!!) I have a bridal shower this weekend annnd my wedding the following... Then off to Hawaii for an 8 day honeymoon thennnn packin up a Uhaul and driving cross country to California where he (we) will be stationed!

Onto my title: I didn't really know what to call my blog, I have seen a lot of people use location in theirs but since I am floating between N.Fl and S.Ga until the honeymoon I chose this title temporarily... My man is also homeless, all of his things are in a storage unit so we got a lil hotel right across from the beach for this week! It's like a vacay mixed with thank-you note writing! (trying not to get too far behind).

I have been so emotional since E has been gone and sooo happy since he came home he suggested that I name my blog "cry baby poopy pants" ha! real mature, babe...

Ok... now I'm gonna try to pimp my blog out.............. stay tuned :)
