Fall Bucket List

It's officially Fall and I hope everyone has enjoyed the first day as much as I have. I started the day off with a nice little PSL, because how else would you celebrate? Fall is one of my favorite seasons for so many reasons, especially this year. The weather is perfect, the fall fashion is the best, I love fall decorations and I will finally get married. 

Since it's the first day of this highly anticipated season, I wanted to share what my bucket list looks like. Here are a few things I hope I get to do: 

Fall Bucket List
Pumpkin Patch
Drink Hot Cocoa
Drink Apple Cider
Take a Foggy Morning Walk
Toast Marshmallows by the Bonfire
Host Thankgsgiving Dinner
Buy Pumpkins
Carve Pumpkins
Eat Squash Soup
Watch Hocus Pocus
Watch Scary Movies
Jump in a pile of leaves
Tailgate at Football Games
Watch some Football
Bake a pie

That's my Fall Bucket list, or what I can think of for now. There's so much to do during this season, especially outdoors. It's the perfect weather to sit outside and just enjoy nature. I am most excited about.... GETTING MARRIED!!!!! 

What are you looking forward to this Fall?  

Until next time,

Tea With the Bride-To-Be

Being engaged can be one of the most exciting times in a girl's life, it has definitely been an amazing few months for me. Although a part of me never wanted that cliché bridal shower where you open gifts in front of everyone, I ended up doing that exact thing and I wouldn't of had it any other way. Not because of the gifts or the cute little decor, but because I got to spend the morning with some of the most amazing women in my life. Last Saturday was a beautiful day for a "Tea Party" but then again, it's always a beautiful day when you get together the ones you love in one place. 

I knew I wanted to have a Tea Party themed shower the moment the planning talks began. The shower was held at Silver Sycamore right outside of Houston. I feel like this is Pasadena's hidden gem, it's the cutest little place and a one stop shop for wedding or any private event. Their service was great, the food amazing and the Tea Room was the perfect setting for the shower. All we had to do was bring in a few pictures and decor to make the place more personal. 

One of my favorite parts of the decor was my mom's wedding dress. It was so meaningful and special to be able to showcase the dress she wore the day she married my dad. Maybe one day my daughter will do the same with mine.

We played games like the classic toilet paper dress competition, don't say bride/wedding,  how well do you know the bride, kiss the groom, my favorite- the story game, and even my fur baby Sir Theodore was part of our activities. 
Thank you to all of my family and friends who showered me with love at my Bridal Tea Party, it meant so much to have you all there. Thank you to my sister and mom who made my vision come true and put up with all of my crazy requests. I could not have asked for a better bridal shower. 

Until next time,
