High 5 for Friday!

Hey friends! Once again, a month has gone by without me posting anything here. I'm the worst! Things have been CRAZY busy between school, work, and wedding prep!

Today I am linking up with Lauren and doing High Five for Friday! Here's a look at what I have been up to this week…

1. CY IS ON HIS WAY HOME LITERALLY RIGHT NOW!!!!! He will arrive in Dallas sometime tomorrow afternoon. Since June, we have spent a total of 2 weeks together, and I am BEYOND ready to have him home again. Being apart this long has been really hard, I am so thankful we are done with distance!

2. Our sweet friends Wesley and Emilee got married on Sunday! Wesley plays for the Brewers with Cy, and Emilee and I connected via Twitter right after the draft. It was so great to go through this first season of pro ball with friends who were also engaged! Having each other as a support system was a HUGE blessing and answer to prayer. Their wedding day was absolutely lovely! Shoutout to my sister for being my date since Cy was still at work ;)

3. I saw these adorable skeleton flamingoes the other day. I have no idea why I love them so much, but I think they're the funniest things I have ever seen. I plan to order/make some for next year for sure! 
Found a place to purchase, here

4. It's Rush Week for DBU Greek Life! Although I'm now alumni status, I still got so excited this week as my sisters went through the process of selecting new members for our sorority. Being a part of a sorority for the last 3 years taught me so much and led to some amazing friendships and memories! Since I know how hectic this week can be (I was the VP and then president, the stress is REAL) I made meals for some of the girls. It was a great was to not only ensure they actually had food (ha!) but also to get me back into the swing of cooking for more than one person.

Wednesday's dinner - balsamic grilled chicken with rice and asparagus
5. And last but certainly not least….. TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY CY AND I WILL SAY "I DO"!!!! I can hardly believe we are already SO close. I took my dress for final alterations this week and suddenly it felt so real! The past 5 months have absolutely flown by. I am absolutely 100% totally and completely thrilled and ready for the big day!

How has your week been? Leave a comment, and head over to Lauren's blog to check out other people sharing about their week!

Until next time,

  1. Two weeks?! AHH! Get ready to have so much fun being married! It is better than being engaged by approximately 10000%! So excited for y'all. Blessings!
