Eeeek! I’m so excited to be sharing our wedding photos with y’all soon! I ran a poll last week asking how y’all want to see wedding-related stuff on the blog (ie. all at once, or in separate posts so that I could share more photos with y’all), and it was a landslide for the “more posts, more photos” option! So, I’m going to be sharing 1-2 posts a week for the next couple of weeks all about our favorite day in chronological order! If you’ve started following me in the past year, you missed our engagement when I shared it initially, so I wanted to share a little #TBT of the post I wrote when my husband got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever! It’s always more fun to have a little back story before sharing wedding photos! Haha!
I’ve gotten so many emails from y’all since getting engaged/married asking for vendor, wedding dress, venue, honeymoon and just general wedding advice. I quickly realized how insane weddings could be cost-wise, so I wanted to mention that if you’re recently engaged, WeddingWire is giving away $10,000 toward your wedding vendors along with additional monthly prizes including a wedding dress, honeymoon luggage and $2,500 to Blue Nile to a few lucky winners! Get all the details HERE (it just involves sharing a photo of your engagement, which who doesn’t want to anyways?! SO easy!). I’m SO excited for all of you girls who have recently gotten engaged…it truly will be the best day ever. Enjoy it, soak it all up, and don’t stress. I’m sure a million people have told you, but it really does go by so so fast.
And please tag me on Instagram in the comments when you share your engagement photos – I’d love love love to see them! <3

If you would’ve asked ANYONE if I would be marrying this man, they would’ve called you crazy.
Fortunately for us, I’ve always been a little crazy.
Five years ago, I had started my freshman year at college. I joined a sorority at Texas State University, and I quickly fell in love with all of the sorority traditions that came with date parties and formals. If you are unfamiliar with greek life, it is tradition to paint your date a cooler and fill it will all sorts of goodies, beer, liquor, food, etc…basically the guys get spoiled. BIG TIME. I was always so busy with school, sorority meetings, and trying to stay afloat through my first semester of college, so I had to find a way to make money with my less-than-flexible schedule. I decided I would to start an Etsy shop where I could paint and sell my coolers to sorority women all over the US who were artistically challenged or just didn’t have the time to paint one themselves (they took me on average 15 hours to complete not including drying time between every coat – you can see some I have painted on my Facebook). My coolers quickly went viral on
