Soooo guess who has a whole month off for the holidays?? THIS GIRL!! I seriously can’t contain how excited I am to have an entire month to relax (and do some major wedding planning)!! Ryan seriously couldn’t have planned this proposal better. And let me tell you, this week has been pretty crazy- it has been tough to juggle being newly engaged and studying for a super important test that was at 7:30 am this morning (yes… that early) but at least it’s all behind me and now I get to catch up with my classmates! Here are my Friday five for the week:
One // Engaged!
This week has been an extra happy one! We have gotten so much love from family, friends, and of course all you bloggers out there. Thank you for your sweet words and comments, it means so much to both of us. If you missed our engagement story, be sure to check out Part 1 & Part 2! When we got back from Asheville on Saturday, we met our besties at 5Church and they were sweet enough to get us a bottle of Prosecco, my favorite bubbly. We followed that with some Moscow mules at Cowbell in honor of my hometown.
Two // Christmas Cards…
Are on their way! This was our first year making a photo Christmas card and I am in love with them! Who doesn’t like a personalized touch? I used Tiny Prints and am very pleased with how they turned out and their customer service was excellent- they even sent me a handwritten thank you card after placing my order. Can’t wait to share them with y’all but for now, here’s a little sneak peek!
Three // We Have a Tree!
I’m very happy to announce that I finally got my very first real Christmas tree!!! That’s right people, I grew up with a nice but fake tree every year so I never got the experience of picking out “the perfect one” or the fresh Christmas-y scent filling the house. Ryan has always had a little baby tree in his condo, but I finally convinced him that we need to do it right this year.
Four // Swoozies
On Wednesday, I went to the new Swoozie’s in Charlotte for a girls night out. I got to meet up with a few bloggers and stocked up on some gifts for the holidays. The best part may have been the swag bag- how freakin’ cute is this wine glass?! It would make the perfect gift for your favorite North Carolinian! I can’t wait to go back and raid the wedding section… this could get dangerous.
Five // First Engagement Gift
Not only did my best friends decorate our door, but they also got us our very first engagement gift! It’s the cutest little ring dish to place by the kitchen sink… because no one should be washing grimy dishes with their ring on! I also want to give a shout out to Ryan’s parents for the sweet card- I can’t believe I’m going to be a daughter-in-law!
I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday… only 19 days until Christmas is here!!!
