Lucy Is Nine Weeks Old!

My little love bug is nine weeks old today, and still... she is growing like crazy. I just want to stop time so she stops growing so much!! Every time she falls asleep, I swear she grows by the time she wakes up.

In other news, I really do hope to start blogging more! I feel like I say this a lot, but I really will try this time. I have so many cool things to share (at least i think they are cool) and I really, really want to soon! Everything from the wedding details, our new home, and some fun recipes.

Introducing Lucy!!

We didn't wait long after our wedding before expanding the family. On Friday, September 14, we got an adorable puppy! She is a Black Lab/Golden Retriever mix that we adopted from a rescue at just 7 weeks old! Her name is Lucy, and she is the sweetest puppy in the world... most of the time.

Currently, Lucy is 8 weeks old and growing like a weed! I decided to document her growth through weekly pictures... until she stops growing. If you are unlucky, I will even post them on here for you all to see.

Popcorn Wedding Favors

Although the wedding is over, I still have a lot of details I would like to share with you, starting with the favors. We originally wanted to bring in a popcorn popper so everyone could have fresh popcorn, but our reception site was not going to let that happen. Instead, we settled for microwave popcorn as our favors, but of course, if you know me, you know I had to make them look cute and fit in with our theme. Here is what I came up with:

Adam designed the logo that said "Thanks for popping in!" while I did all the cutting. 

We cut and tied ribbon to make the bows.

Then the gluing began....

When all the gluing was FINALLY finished, we wrapped the paper around each bag of popcorn, and voila!
Popcorn Wedding Favors!!

I love the way they turned out!! We alternated them by seat at the reception, and it turned out great. It added a little color to the tables, and was more unique than the typical chocolates or mints. We had cake and a dessert bar at the reception, so no one really needed any more sweets anyways. And at the end of the night, all the college students were collecting the extras to take back to school with them. 

Did anyone else have a unique wedding favor for their guests? 
I would love to hear about it!

We're Married!

Adam and I got married on August 24!!

It was a beautiful day. The weather was absolutely perfect. We were surrounded by 200 family members and friends to help us celebrate. The food was amazing, and the band put on a good show. The dance floor was full the entire night. We managed to get most of our projects done in time, and our guests thought the room looked beautiful. I loved that I was able to say that I made everything almost everything myself, or with the help of family and friends. I don't know what to do with myself now that the wedding is over and all my DIY projects are finished. 

We are still patiently waiting for our professional photos (the picture above is the only sneak peek we've been given). Here are a few of our favorite pictures from family and friends.

I will post more pictures when we get them from the photographer!
