Outfit of the days: Beach day & BBQ

Wednesday I got to go to the beach with little miss southern love. <3  We had a great time with our friend visiting from Tennessee. Girls beach days are always the best!! It was a little hot, but what can you do it's Florida.

Today I went to a BBQ at MK's house to celebrate a family birthday. I love having a break from school, MK and I have had time to relax while hanging out with friends and family. I hope it slows down a little bit.

Wedding Wednesday

I know I have been MIA for the past week. I have been so busy with finals and projects. Thanks to everyone who commented on the last Wedding Wednesday post! MK & I are pretty positive we will be going with PINK and NAVY! (:
mKw and I are super excited that we have booked our wedding photographer. She photographed our friend's wedding last summer and every picture is absolutely stunning! Since mKw and I have a break from school at the moment, we want to figure out the details regarding our engagement photo shoot.  Recently I have been brainstorming ideas for outfits we can wear.  So far I have come up with one of our two outfits. Coincidentally we want to wear pink and navy!

White Ralph Lauren polo with navy Dockers

This will be our second outfit of two. We are still picking out our first outfit, but it will probably be a little more casual. What do you think?

Wedding Wednesday

I always thought I knew exactly what I wanted for my wedding, but since MK proposed I have become so indecisive. I remember envisioning my wedding with lots of pink. Which would be an obvious guess by any of my family or friends. After looking at numerous color pallets I just can seem to decide & surprisingly not all of them include pink!

Possible Color Choices 
Option 1- Pink & Green 
With pink being my favorite color and green making it very Lilly like... I just love this option.
Option 2- Navy & Yellow
Some were surprised I am considering colors schemes that don't have pink. I just can't seem to rule it our just yet. The way the yellow pops on the navy just makes me smile. 
Option 3- Pink & Navy
I starting thinking of this combination when the navy really started growing on me. I also get to use pink which would be such a typical color choice for me. MK also loves navy!
Option 4- Turquoise & Yellow
Very out of the ordinary for me. Again I like how the yellow really pops out. It just looks so great with the turquoise. Then the guys could wear a light grey suit which is MK's second choice. 

Help any suggestions?

Busy Bee

Recently, I have been totally occupied by school work. It has just been one project after another, all thrown together with exams and other school work. Ahhh... at least finals are coming up and I couldn't be more excited. Excited for finals??! I am just ready to get them over with, because after I finish the semester my future hubby and I are going on a road trip to South Carolina! We cannot wait to get up there. Last time I went to visit I toured an animal preserve with my mom and brother. I am really hoping mKw and I will have time to take the tour, since last time we only got to take a picture with a monkey. It was an amazing experience. I'll let some pics speak for themselves!

My mom brother and I with the Liger... 
yes they are real thanks Napoleon Dynamite. lol
What a great family picture.

I loved this little girl Maya! Isn't she sweet?

I was super excited to meet the elephant Bubbles, because 
elephants are my FAVORITE animal! (:

If we don't have time for the tour I hope we can
visit the picture station again!

The Start of Something New

Some say, "Happy wife happy life." In my mKw's (my fiancé) case it is Preppy Wife Preppy Life! mKw and I have been together for over 6 years. After we got engaged this past November, naturally we started talking about what married life will be like. It came down to us realizing that a preppy wife means a preppy life. Embracing our already preppy lifestyles we are excited to get married and begin this new chapter in our lives. Read along as I transition to a preppy wife, plan my wedding, and finish my senior year of nursing school!
