Two Weddings, A Baby Shower & a Lot of House Projects

Confession: I have a problem. I like to do all of the things.

... which is how I found myself taking photographs at a 4pm lakeside wedding, attending a different 5:30pm wedding across town, and hosting a baby shower less than 24 hours later on Sunday.
You could say that it was a busy weekend around here.

I really, really wanted to throw in another trip up to Clemson this week to go to the National Championship parade Saturday morning but you know, logic kicked in and I decided that probably wasn't the best idea. It looks like everyone {all 70,000 of you} who went had fun though!

Back to Friday: we found our motivation and some time to get some painting done around the house last week. We finished painting the trim/doors in our kitchen, were finally able to hang up blinds in the window over our sink, and got some closet shelves cleaned up/painted Friday evening.

We are so close to knocking out a few other things around the house, too. The trim in the smaller guest bedroom is almost ready to be painted. Patrick has picked out a paint color & purchased the paint for the future mancave downstairs. I'm ready to {finally} tackle painting our fireplace this week.

Enough of the house for now - y'all are getting a full house update post later this week {hopefully}. Let's move on to all of the celebrations we photographed, attended, & hosted this weekend!

Wedding # 1: Terry & Katie. Katie was sweet enough to ask me to come photograph their special day. They had a small ceremony on the edge of Lake Murray and it was such a perfect day for the two of them.

Just a little sneak peek for now...

Wedding #2: Amy & Brandon. Amy and I go wayyyy back to our high school youth group days so it was especially fun watching her tie the knot with Brandon.

I have entirely too much fun with these people. There was a lot of {questionable} dancing, a good amount of celebrating, quite a few pictures, and so much fun Saturday night.

& then we wrapped up the weekend with a baby shower for Laura & Baby Boy M.

At the end of the day, it was a really good weekend. But want to know what happens when I try to do all of the things, otherwise known as burning the candle at both ends? I spend all of Monday on the couch at home with some medicine, a box of tissues, and a big cup of water trying to kick some sort of cold/sinus infection. Ugh. Lesson learned. Don't do all of the things.

Happy Tuesday, y'all!

  4. I hear you about trying to do all the things! It looks like such a fun weekend though - feel better!

  5. We had to paint the trim and the doors in our ENTIRE house. We haven't touched the window frames because they're covered by curtains lol. It was a HUGE undertaking so I definitely can relate to the joy and elation of getting that done!

  6. I can totally relate on wanting to do all of the things :) Last year was madness to I decided 2017 will be the year I do less. Love your blog by the way!

  7. Dang girl, you've definitely been busy! Hope you feel better soon! And hope you get some rest in this weekend, sounds like you need it! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
