We are back now from an amazing honeymoon after an amazing wedding. I’m still pinching myself on how perfect this all has been!

There will be a lot of photos to share over the coming days and weeks, so bare with me through this parade of happiness… :)

The first to come in is from my friend, the extremely talented Ali McLaughlin. Her and her husband drove through the night to be with us! Her pictures are extraordinary and I have hijacked a couple of them here, but you can see the rest here!

HUGS TO ALL for all the good wishes!!

Last post as Miss Amber McDonald!

Everyone has begun to arrive here in Nashville! Everything for the wedding is done and we are happy and relaxed – no stress at all! :)

It’s been so much fun planning for the past year and a half, it will be great to see it all come together.

Picked up our marriage license at the courthouse this morning, so we are all set! On our way to the airport shortly to greet some family and friends…

Thanks for all your nice comments and feedback on my wedding projects! I appreciate it more than you know!

See y’all later! :)

12 days!! & A Recap

Category: Uncategorized

12 days! Yay. I’m trying to be more excited but I’m having a hard time just pushing through the last few days because of a self-diagnosed SINUS INFECTION. Eck. I feel like junk. My face/sinus just HURTS like h-e-double-hockey sticks.

Hitting up the DR. for some antibiotics if I’m not feeling better tomorrow. Have to get good and healthy! :D

Finishing up things and feeling good and "in control" if you could say that. Little by little things have gotten done and I’m so happy with the finished product!

It has FINALLY decided to rain in Nashville and things are turning green again, yay! Hard to believe summer is pretty much over. We enjoyed it thoroughly mostly on the lake this year – went by so fast!

Here’s a couple photos from Labor Day Weekend…we went camping with a big ole group at Center Hill Lake. Pitched a tent on a deserted beach…pesky ants and mosquito bites aside (oh! and I came upon a water snake eating his lunch while on a hike to a waterfall) – it was very fun!

Our campsite. The morning after a whole lot of sangria, et al.

Lb4
Pretty view to wake up to, no?

Lb3

Brandon & Matt taking advantage of the flat morning water. And yes, they blasted "Party Like A Rockstar" at 9am while they did this.

Lb5
Matt  & Joyce – we love them and their boat! ;) We’re even going to Puerto Rico with them for Thanksgiving, very excited!!

Lbd1
Really not all Center Hill Lake water is like this – much more blue. This was at the inlet where we trudged through mud and PAST SNAKES to get to the waterfall.

And this past weekend….we took in the Vanderbilt vs. Alabama game! I tried to tell myself I wasn’t sick, but ugh, I wasn’t missing my first SEC game!

Game3
This was so cool…the band and a HUGE crowd was there to cheer the Vandy players down the tunnel.

Game2
The game was sold out. But we didn’t make it into the game until the third quarter (the vendor tailgate we got the tickets from was too much fun to leave!), so when we finally sat down a huge storm rolled in and a ton of people left (as in the photo above).

Game1
We lasted about 10 minutes in the rain, then left! After all, we’re Tennessee Vols fans now! :)

Off to get some rest! Ciao!
