the unexpected

It always seems like some of the best moments in life are those that are unexpected. I love those moments and they are always welcome.

Adam and I attended the Crawfish Festival at the Park Tavern this past Sat.
I had purchased the tickets early b/c a friend was playing as one of the opening bands. Originally we were planning to not stay long. Maybe a few hours total to support him. However, I had known all along that Cowboy Mouth was going to be playing but wasn't sure if Adam would be up for hanging out to watch them. I've been a fan since college (thanks Ziff) and have seen them before. They put on a great show and really give the crowd high engery.

We arrived about 1:30pm just an hour or so before Life & Limb was schedule to go on.
It was a beautiful day outside and a bunch of our friends were there. Life & Limb had the best set that I have seen to date, seriously it was really good. More friends showed up and then the beers started to come out.

Needless to say we did stay and had the best time. There must have been a pack of 15 of us. Cowboy mouth played an awesome show, even Adam enjoyed it.
We were both surprised at the amount of fun we had that day. Here are a few pictures

Say "YES" to the dress

What every girls grows up thinking about, the wedding dress. I'm not one of these girls that puts on the first or second dress and knows. I have to try them all before making my decision. I mean, what if there were a better one out there, can't have that. I'm pretty sure that I've tried on almost every dress in Atlanta and some in Toronto.

From the start I was looking for something different. I've seen a lot of the same style and shaped dresses out there. I found it difficult to explain to the consultants what I was looking for. I was open to different neck line, beading, shape, cut, designers and color. I just really wanted something different and that was unforgettable. I stayed open to try lace, silk, satin and taffeta.

When I finally had several number 1,2 and 3 dresses my mom flew in. We spent the weekend running all over Atlanta to try on bridal dresses. We started with the current #1 dress so she knew how to judge all others. That dress quickly became #2. and then #3. Needless to say I ended up picking a completely different dress then the first round trials. I wish I could post a picture and share it with you but.....just like Adam, you'll have to wait until 10.16.10

on to the next task

Thunder sticks

This Friday a few of us went to a Hawks game. This was my first. I'm not really a basketball fan but I figured we should check it out since Adam and I have never been. Much to our surprise it was REALLY fun. The action was high and the good seats made the game really exciting. They played Boston and it was a good game. They had a bunch of entertainment during time outs and between quarters. Adam and I were both shocked at how much fun we had.

I got a great picture of tip off. check it out.

Where have you been...

hi folks, sorry I've been MIA for a while. The engagement and the holidays have gone by so fast. I figured I would give you a little update on what I've been getting planning.

I am very close to having a venue and date. If you know me well then you know I like to do my research. I've been getting my internet time in researching if we should do a destination wedding, elopping or home base style. There are so many options that my head was spinning for a while. At the end of the day the destination road, although would be cheap for us, would cost our guests a lot more and we would inevitable miss out on having ppl attend that we wanted to share the moment with. So Adam and I decided that an Atlanta wedding would be best.

Being in the industry Adam and I know lots of people that will be able to help us out with the process. We want to make the wedding a reflection of our not so traditional life styles. Some traditions must stay,,,like the something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new, I love that one.

So with all these decisions and research you can see what I've been doing. I'll be excited to finally nail down a date and place. after that the rest of the pieces will start to come together and before you know it, it's party time.

Quick shout out, our friends Driver (Christina) and Travis have been kind enough to organize a engagement celebration. We are very excited about it. Thanks guys, we love ya!!!
