Drink Dispensers

I am in desperate need of 3 drink dispensers. I need them to be 2+ gallons each. My mother found some at Dillard's a few weeks back, but they are only 1 gallon each. So, if anyone knows where I can buy them or have some for me to borrow, I would greatly appreciate it!!

Couples Shower

This weekend our wonderful friends hosted a shower for Ben and me. The weather was beautiful, the food was awesome, and the company was even better. Thanks friends!

Olivia is probably one of the best hostess I have ever met. She made the entire evening possible and did a wonderful job. Thanks Liv.

Some of our wonderful friends relaxing.

The yummy food. Shrimp, potatoes, corn, bread, and salad.

George opening oysters. He and Stacy brought up 300 Oysters from New Orleans.

Probably the best picture of the evening. We sure did have alot of fun!
Me with the parents!

Stacy and George were so nice to drive all the way from New Orleans for our party. Thanks y'all

It's Official

Well, I officially feel like a bride. I had my first fitting today. I absolutely love my dress and I can not wait until I can show Ben. I hate keeping things from him, but this one will have to wait until May 2nd. Which by the way, is 43 days away. Everything seems to be coming together. Invitations have been mailed and we have received 4 responses already! Next week is our first shower, in which Ben and I are grateful to have wonderful friends throw it for us. THANK YOU FRIENDS. Oh, and the best part is, we have booked a HONEYMOON. We are traveling to Punta Mita, Mexico (Yes I have read all of the travel warnings). We will be staying at the gorgeous St. Regis. We will actually stay at two resorts while on our honeymoon. The first 4 nights will be at the St. Regis and the last 3 nights at a Palace Resort in Puerto Vallarta. The Palace Resort is an all inclusive, where as the St. Regis is pay as you go. Hope we are not getting in over our head too much by staying at a 5 star hotel. Needless to say we are very excited.

Best Man

I can not believe I forgot to highlight Drew as one of Ben's groomsmen. So, without further ado I present Mr. Drew Zinser. Drew is Ben's Best Friend and Best Man.
Drew and Ben went to high school together and were college roommates. Although Drew is not always around (he works all the damn time) he and Ben would drop anything to help one another out. Drew is married to the beautiful Lindsey who is also our good friend. Thank you Drew for being apart of our wedding day and I know Ben is excited to have you stand up with him.

Mason Jars

I am looking for about 150 mason jars. If anyone knows where I can get a good deal, please let me know. Just imagine a nice cold cocktail or lemonade out of an old fashion mason jar!

52 Days

52 Days and Counting. I can not believe I am already counting down the days. It will be here before I know it.
I had a very successful trip to Mobile this past Friday. Ben and I met with the florist and finalized our floral arrangements. We also met with Father Viscardi, the priest marrying us. He is such a sweet man and I am excited to have him marry me.
My mother and I finished stuffing wedding invitations and they are ready to be sealed, stamped and delivered.
Everything is slowly coming together. Getting excited for May 2nd!
