Busy Bride

Lunch the last two days has consisted of running around like a crazy woman getting items for our engagement pictures this weekend. I am *SUPER* excited about the pictures. It somehow makes the wedding feel more real.
I want to use these pics for a postcard style Save the Date. My old friend Erin that I used to work with at the Islander is designing them for me.
I got a sweet beach cruiser that looks vintage for Christmas, and I'm bringing it along for pictures. I ran into a thrift store at lunch {if you live in Columbia, I do my junking at His House on Meeting St. - it's hit or miss, but sometimes I find good stuff to refurbish/repurpose} and found a basket that will be perfect to attach to the bike to put flowers in.

I usually find pretty good flowers in Publix, so I will run in and pick some up Saturday before our pics. If you know me, then you know I love grocery shopping and need my frequent trips to the Pig or Publix.
We are going for a country/rustic theme.

I am so amazed how at nice people are in our little town {Blythewood}. Nick and I say that every time we go to the pharmacy or post office or anywhere in our teeny little town. Complete strangers are letting us come to their plantation house and farm this weekend with our photographer for pics.
I have a mutual friend with the family that is letting us use their farm. I lived downstairs from him in some apartments in Clemson when I went to Tri County Tech, and hadn't seen him in ten years when Nick and I ran into him at a Ducks Unlimited Banquet. {For the record, I'm not a tiger, I transferred to USC from tech.} I am very grateful to have such a great location for our pictures.
Yay for Hump Day! Hopefully I will have some pics to share soon.
