my kitchen just got a little happier...

Well, guess what came in the mail today...

Yay!! A kitchenaid mixer! In pistachio! For the past few years I've been without a kitchenaid, or more like I wasn't living at home anymore so I couldn't borrow my mom's. I definitely need this to further my quest in becoming a domestic goddess. A big THANK YOU  to the people that gave us gift certificates to Bed, Bath and Beyond!

I need to bake. Or at least mix.

10 things

10 things list, inspired by this post by cottage girl. You know how much I love a list...

1. We're back and I'm officially living in Big Brown. I love living with Ray and I love our house. #realwordlbigbrown

2. Last night I met a tiny week old babe named Abe. Well, actually named Abram. He was so sweet and made silly faces. I've reached the age when friends have started having babies... it's kind of weird, but really sweet.

3. I found a vintage catherine holm green lotus tea kettle for $1 (yes, $1!!) Monday at a thrift store. It's my first catherine holm find. Hopefully not my last.

4. Tuesday evening wasn't great... but then Ray and I decided to look over guest book photos from our wedding and it made everything better. The mixture of sweet and hilarious photos were wonderful. I will be sharing some here soon. Our good friends Jonny and Leanne took charge of our digital guestbook and did such an amazing job!

5. While on our honeymoon, Ray and I stopped in the teeny town of Milton, Fl at an antique store called the Copper 'Possum. We found a vintage chalkboard (which I've wanted for about a year) for super cheap. It now lives in our kitchen.

6. I need to figure out a new way to store and display my jewels. I have a LOT of jewelry. Anyone have a good DIY solution? Not a jewelry tree.

7. In the next few months I will be getting my first tattoo! I'm not sure if I want to get it in the summer because I will have to stay out of the river and springs for 6 weeks... and that will make me really sad. And hot. It's going to be super cute and fun though. I can't wait to show you!

8. Ray and I will be DIYing our Thank You cards. We have some pretty cute ideas so far.

9. I miss New Orleans food. And drinks.

10. I'm glad I've started blogging again.

This past Saturday I got married. MARRIED. To my best friend and favorite person in the world. I don't even know how to begin to describe last weekend. Or the last week. Or really the last 6 months. I absolutely can't wait to share our wedding photos on here!! I've only seen 8... and they're the best wedding pictures I've ever seen. Seriously.

Ray and I are currently honeymooning in New Orleans, but when I get home I'm going to start blogging about the entire process. Things are much calmer now, so regular blogging will commence.

Being married is so magical.

photography and Adele

Ray and I didn't spend a ton of time trying to find a wedding photographer. We knew the style and quality we were going for and knew that our friend Kelly would be the perfect choice! She's wonderfully creative and takes incredible photos. Go look at her blog and swoon over the amazing photos and then watch this video of her singing Someone Like You by Adele. Kelly is such a multi-talented lady and I'm so excited she's going to be part of our wedding!

sweetest wedding video I've ever seen

As you're probably all aware, I have wedding fever. My sweet friend Kathryn recently tied the knot. I can't get enough of her wedding video. It's perfect in so many ways.
