here we go!

well without further ado, I wish you a…


it’s been an exciting 2014 and 2015 is shaping up to be even better than the last!  the past year has brought an engagement, a big move from Minnesota to South Dakota, two new jobs, and countless new friends and experiences. twitter and facebook tell me this is the part where I hashtag #blessed – and in all seriousness, looking back, could I possibly be any more blessed?!

actually, yes.  because this year I get to actually marry that fiance of mine surrounded by all our friends and family.  it will be a long road to get there with so much to do (I may be a little bit of a budget-conscious-detail-oriented-perfectionist…) but when I do get overwhelmed I remind myself of all the items we already have checked off the list:

  • dress, done! (weddings 826)
  • photographer, done! (bernadette pollard)
  • videographer, done! (dave puente)
  • ceremony location, done! (st thomas more – summit & lexington)
  • reception venue, done! (harriet island pavilion – st paul)
  • room block, done!

now for caterers, florists, decor, cake, DJs, save the dates, invites, transportation… whew! DIY & budget-friendly tips are always welcome!

now for me to get my homework done for my Farm Beginnings class before tomorrow! I’m absolutely loving the people and the class itself, not to mention the fact I get to go to Rapid City and get my Target Fix in…

keep an eye out for posts on my DIY projects I’ve been doing for the wedding! (hint: I got a new Cricut Explore for Christmas!)

wishing you all the best!! xo


p.s. I challenge you to find another blog post out there with the tags “Cancun, New Years, Wedding, and Cows” like this one! hah!
