a little date

bennett and i went out the other night
on what ended up being one of the best dates ever.
we started out at the park and the weather was perfect.
i took pictures for my photo class
and bennett read
and then we talked about our future together
and got butterflies in our stomachs.
then we went to bobby's dairy dip and had the BEST hamburgers
and fried pickles
and fries
and sodas
and dipped ice cream cones
and then we went and played putt putt golf
(bennett won. by a lot.)
and i saw a lady with a baby who was eight days old.
and i almost cried because he was so precious.
we ended the night at the holland house
and we all drank weekender punch and wanted more
(but our wallets wouldn't allow it)


it was quite a good night.

wedding invitations!

as soon as bennett and i started planning our wedding
we knew that we wanted almost everything handmade
as far as paper goods, decorations, etc.
so when it came time to make our invitations
there was no question as to whether i would make them or not.
i spent hours drawing out the invites and we are thrilled with the outcome!
we just feel that they are so personal and so us.
see for yourself!

i never want to leave

tomorrow is our last day in hilton head
and none of us want to leave.

this vacation came at the perfect time for me.
i was at the end of my rope with school
and wedding planning
and everything else.
this week gave me the refueling i need
to go back to nashville
finish my last semester of classes
and do everything i need to do
to make our wedding exactly how we want it to be.
here's to the next 74 days of chaos.

i have an obsession

...with babies.
while most people spend their time
looking up videos of kittens
or puppies
i look up videos of babies
doing just about everything
because i love babies more than just about anything.
now watch this video:

hilton head photos

like i said before,
i'm spending this week in hilton head
aka heaven.
bennett's camping with his groomsmen for his bachelor party
so me, ellen, stephanie, and her boyfriend billy all came here.
the family i nanny for was so generous
and they are letting us stay in their beach house
(which is probably the most gorgeous house i've ever been in besides the biltmore)
and now we never want to leave.

in hilton head.

sick boy

my bennett is sick
and pitiful
and it makes me so very sad
and somehow he's still so cute
despite a fever and bad cough...
