Engagement Photo Props

Linking up with Elizabeth again for Bridal Talk Tuesday!

MK and I REALLY need to get our engagement pictures done. We are still working on our outfits... we have changed our minds like 39874234 times, but I do have a few crafts that I would like to make. I am also hoping that on Friday we can go exploring for some unique spots to take our pictures. Which will hopefully inspire our outfit choices because right now we have about 4-5 each. 
For now here are my prop ideas via Pinterest

What do y'all think!?
If you have any cute ideas feel free to share!

Work it out!

The weather in Florida is starting to cool down a bit. To me that means perfect running weather. 

 I have been going to boot camp once a week and doing cardio, but I cannot wait for it to be cool enough to comfortably run outside. I occasionally run in the heat, but it is hard with my asthma and the Florida humidity. With the wedding in less than 7 months it is time to get in to the best shape of my life!  (: 

Happy Monday!!
xoxo, Beverly

Fall Treats

Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treats

3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
  • Red and Yellow (To make orange) & Green food coloring
  • White frosting
  • Tootsie Rolls
  • We made our treats using the microwave, which worked out to be very convient. My clinical group and I ended up making over 50 pumpkins and the nurses LOVED them!
Here is how we did it! 
  • First we put the butter and marshmallows in a microwave-safe bowl, and placed it in the microwave for 3 minuets on high, stirring after 2 minutes. After the full 3 minuets was done we mixed in the food coloring to make the mixture orange.
  • HINT: Once you add the rice crispys the color 
  • will lighten, so be sure to make it a darker orange. 
Once we had a nice orange color, we added the rice crispy cereal and mixed it until the cereal looked well coated. Then it was time to make the pumpkins! We just pulled some out of the bowl and molded it to be a round ball and placed a tootsie roll in the center.
HINT: Let the mixture cool a little bit 
before you being to mold your pumpkins.

To add the leaves, we used food coloring to make green icing. Then we put the icing into a plastic bag, pushing all the icing to one corner. To make the leaves we cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and pushed the icing out.

If you make any fall treats leave me a comment with your link! I would love to see them!

Bridal Talk Tuesday-

Linking up with Elizabeth again for Bridal Talk Tuesday!

In a previous Bridal Talk Tuesday, I mentioned a few songs that we were considering for our first dance. MK pretty much had his mind made up when we listened to each of them. I cannot wait to call him my HUSBAND and have our first dance to Then by Brad Paisley!! We both like Brad and have always loved the song then, but honestly there was some tough competition out there. 

Thanks for everyone who gave their feedback in the previous post! It really was a hard decision to make!

What do y'all think?

Words to Live By

I saw this on pinterest of course... 
I made it the background of my iPhone for a daily reminder. 

Can you imagine what the world would be like if everyone took this list and applied it to daily life?

Sweet Treats

Next week I will be half way through my LAST semester of nursing school! We will be switching our clinical rotation sites, so our group decided that we should make some treats for the nurses we have been working with.

We picked these super cute pumpkin rice crispy treats
that I had pinned on Pinterest
We wanted something simple that we could make 
a lot of and these look perfect! 

Are you planning on making any fall treats soon?

Have a great Saturday!

My Cousin's Gorgeous Wedding

Linking up with Elizabeth again for Bridal Talk Tuesday!
I know it has been a while since I teased y'all with a wedding picture from my cousin's wedding, but trust me these pictures are worth the wait! My cousin's wedding was amazing... seriously, nearly every guest (all 324) said it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to. MK and I had the best time with friends and family. This was also the first wedding I got to experience as a guest (not an attendant). 

Not only was it one of the most fun times I have ever had, but it was absolutely gorgeous.

My beautiful cuzzie! <3 
Two large mirrors with seating assignments.
Brilliant idea for an outside wedding!  
They asked me to do a reading. (: 
Bridal Party
Stunning... Her dress was absolutely perfect for her!
Beautiful Bride
My cousin jAm and I (before baby T was born!)
Baby T arrived less than a week later!
Entrance- coming around the couches, that were conveniently placed surrounding the dance floor. Perfect for people to feel like they are involved even if they can't dance.
Loved this seating arrangement. 
MK and I (:
Picture with my cousin and his girlfriend, who also loves Lilly Pulitzer!
<3  <3  <3 

My cousin has been great with sharing wedding planning tips with me!
FUN FACT: She is a hair stylist and will be doing my hair for my wedding day! 
I can't wait I am sure she will come up with something perfect!

Happy Bridal Talk Tuesday Everyone!
xoxo, BSA
