Joan Holloway :: Betty Draper :: Betty & Don :: Betty & Don on pretty little sofa :: Dinner

Who isn't mad for it? This show has taken over my life as of late. I blame this on Tad. He got me the first few discs because he knows I love this era. Obviously, he knows me all to well. I swoon over the hair and makeup in every episode.  Don't even get me started on the dresses and suits. I'm talking dressed to the nines every day. If you haven't tuned in yet, you should probably do that soon. It won't disappoint.

My bachelorette party kind of rocked. I wanted something very relaxing and chill because that is my idea of a crazy good time. It was oh so laid back and perfect. Right up my alley. My friends also threw me the sweetest lingerie party a.k.a. lingerie guessing game. They named each piece and I had to guess who it was from. Then the groom gets to pick out what pieces to bring on the honeymoon by the name alone. Ladies, you'll never believe what he chose. We also poked fun of a new, trendy acronym. Watch the video and it won't be hard to figure out.

I'm sure this comes as a huge surprise, but this is my favorite engagement picture. I have the feeling marrying into a family with a little photographer will come in handy time and time again. We are just one month away from being husband and wife. So overwhelming in the most wonderful way. We are finished with pre-marital counseling and are so thankful for what the Lord is doing in our lives. Tad and I had a heart to heart last night about submitting our married life to His plan. I am in such a hurry to get things done in our future and yesterday, reality gave me a much needed smack in the face. Tad always has a way of bringing me back down to earth in our conversations. We also discussed how difficult newlywed life will be. The vows we take next month will not be taken lightly. We have big plans to guard each other's hearts and our marriage fiercely.

As far as the wedding itself (which I am 10 kinds of excited about), we'll be meeting with Sweet Sunday tomorrow to finalize the timeline for the big day.  I know Texas is in a drought, but if everyone could save the rain dance until after the wedding we'd just love that.

Happy Easter weekend!

You can find me these days daydreaming about our honeymoon in Punta Cana. If I wasn't a girl on a wedding budget, I'd snag these items. For now it's just a wish list. A girl can dream, right?

Ain't no party like a Ramsey party. Our couples shower was incredible! The decorations, food and thoughtfulness left me speechless. The Ramsey family never ceases to amaze me. Tad and I just love them all to the moon. We had so many sweet friends who traveled near and far to celebrate with us this weekend. From Dallas to Chicago, they made the trip to good ol' Temple. It meant the world to us. We're so very blessed with the most amazing friends and family.

Please take a moment to note the two creepers in the back of this next picture. Hint: one is me and one is Rusten.

Obvious foreshadowing of how fun the wedding will be? I'd say so.
