Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Bham weekend

Went as well as can be expected.

On the road again:

Went well, Julie and I watched movies and gabbed while our chauffeur (lol) drove the 9 1/2 hours to Alabama.

Dinner with the family was nice then it was off to bed... or so we thought. Julie and I stayed up until 3:30 talking.

BBQ me and you!

The cookout was great. Even thought it was a lot more formal than we thought it was going to be. Jennifer made a drink called blue paradise but Julie and I decided to call it "The Jen"! We were all up later again so we all crashed.

Tea anyone!
It was such a lovely day, with some awkwardness thrown in there.

The day started out busy with Jennifer's dog Maggie eating a huge crater in my pan of brownies for the hostess gifts. So I then had double the baking to do which stressed me out! But thanks to Julie, who helped me get the baskets together, we weren't too late to the tea.

There were so many people there... and not to sound crazy... but all the women started to look alike. White salon styled hair, with a nice pair of slacks on and a floral shirt. So I wasn't so quick to remember names this go round. The awkward part was opening the gifts, from a bunch of women I didn't know and probably would never see again in my life...

We got so many lovely gifts to build our home it was really unbelievable.

After the tea, Julie and I were exhausted from sitting up so straight and had to unscrew our smiles. Being so nervous about something can really take a lot out of you. So we tried to wind down but with all the family there it was hard to do.

Thank you cards, cleaning and moving will all commence this week in prep for the FMIL who is coming Friday for the shower.

I am currently exhausted but am pushing through!


  1. CONGRATS!!!! yay for strange women!

  2. Oh goodness! How awkward!

    It sounds like a lovely weekend, though!
