The Last Single Weekend

Can y'all believe it?
It's WEDDING WEEK. This time next week, I will be on my way to complete relaxation with my husband with this excellent view:

I'm not even sure that I believe it just yet. I still have no idea where April, May, June, and most of this month have gone {if you find those missing months, please return them back to me!} but I am so ready to get married on Saturday. I cannot wait to see all of our family and friends as they begin arriving to town on Thursday and I am PUMPED that we'll be on our way to the Dominican this time next week.
So how did I spend my last "single" weekend? It looked a little something like this:

A long, 4+ mile walk around my parents' neighborhood on Saturday morning with my mom.

A trip to Soda City Market.

A lot of work on our new farmhouse table.

A stop by Crouch Distilling for a tour and tasting {more on this later this week}.

And maybe an even quicker stop by Conquest Brewing {it was right next door to Crouch and technically it was a wedding errand!}

A little celebrating for my parent's 40th anniversary.

& by celebrating, I mean they came over to our house and helped work on my closet and organize the kitchen.

A finished closet!

Granted, that's only about a 1/3 of my clothes. It's a good thing that I get to take over the closet in our guest bedroom because going from a walk in closet to a 4" wide closet is pretty challenging.

And y'all, here we are. Wedding Week.

I've got a couple of posts scheduled for this week but I'll be taking alllllll of next week off {yay, honeymoon!} and will be back full time after the first week of August. Back to recipes, football fun, running, and probably still quite a bit of house things.

Oh, and I can imagine that there might be a post or two with wedding pictures ;)
On that note, happy Monday! Hope you're following along with all the wedding week shenanigans on instagram {@chessop} and snapchat {also @chessop}
