Possible wedding venue!! Eseeola Lodge~Linville Golf Club

Today or tomorrow I will be going up the mountain
to look at a potential venue for the wedding!!

Taylor and I love the mountains and are avid hikers,
so the mountains are a must when it comes to our wedding.

Our first plan was Hawaii, just me and Taylor
beach wedding of our dreams...but then everyone was crushed.
So we decided  a small family wedding in NC
was the way to go.

Here is where we plan to get married at this May!

This is where we hope to say "I DO"

We would use the lodge and the dining room for the dinner and reception.

For those who know Taylor and I this is the perfect location.

Mountains....check...Old rustic looking lodge...check....On a golf course....check
Having the wedding of our dreams...priceless

I'm praying they still have a opening in May...keeping my fingers crossed.

 I will keep everyone updated on what the outcome is!

Happy Monday!!

Cupcake Cakes

I'm so excited to post about this.
Cupcake Cakes!
It's the new hip thing, and I didn't even know about it till last week!

I was looking at Disney's Family Fun Magazine and came across a write up about
Cupcake Cakes...
and let me tell you...
I'm in LOVE!
So cool, their great for birthdays, weddings, showers, and pretty much everything!

Here are a few I'm in love with

How fun are those??
I'm so excited because I have decide to go with one of the two "wedding cakes"
above for my wedding, since It's only going to be a small 25 family wedding
I thought this would be PERFECT for it!

Have a great day!!

A re-draw....and a sinus infection???

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let you all know that I've been really sick this week and last week.
It started out as a sinus infection, the antibiotics were not working so I went back to
the doctor this morning, I just felt really bad and my throat had gotten worse, come to find out the
drainage from my sinuses had a bacteria in it, causing my throat to be irratated, gross I know, but Im
back on two different meds and hopefully this will clear it up and I can get back to blogging!

Now, to the good news, yesterday I drew the winner of the $20 Etsy credit
to The Stitching Chick. Well the winner Ashley, contacted me and said she would like someone
else to win because she is doing a review for Loree. With that being said, I will be
doing a re-draw tomorrow for the $20 credit.
So be sure to check back to see if you won.

Thanks everyone you are awesome!!
