Wedding Things

Wow! I had no idea so many of you still visited my internet abode! What a lovely surprise.

Love you, mean it.

Well, we are almost 100 days away from our wedding. I am soooo ready! I can't wait.

I thought I would update all of you lads how the planning is going and questions I have for you.

I had no idea how hard it was to choose a song to walk down the aisle to. You see, Tyler is not a crier. As much as I wished he shed a tear when he sees a newborn child or cried when a dog is killed in a movie, he's just not the type. Which is why I hope he cries when I walk down the aisle. It took me three weeks to find a song and I finally found one. I'm not going to share it just yet. Sorry!

We are using a videographer! It wasn't in the budget, but I figured I could eat rice cakes for a few weeks and save my grocery money to pay for one. It's really killing two birds with one stone, eating rice cakes is 1) healthy and cardboard-ish 2) cheap.

We are using Mabble Media. Check out how great they are! I can't wait.

No, not this one.

I was not going to, but after working at a bridal salon and putting veils on ladies made me rethink it. It's really going to be the only time in my life I can wear a piece of tulle on my head and look normal. I was really anti veil, but I feel like the moment I put it on, I will feel like a true bride.

I am not wearing it a second after the ceremony is done.

Today we are meeting with a florist. I was hoping to get away with not having a florist, but then I realized we need boutonnieres, boquets and some flowers for tables.

Our wedding invites turned out major. I was going to do them on Minted, but opted to go with a local wedding invite store called Paper Moon in Reno. I thought it would be more expensive but it was actually less expensive!

I actually hand wrote all of the RSVP cards AND addressed each one. After, I felt I deserved a gold metal. At least a gold star sticker.

We just booked our honeymoon to England. We are staying in Minchinhampton for 7 days and London for 2. We are excited to travel around England's countryside. Can't wait to try out some really curry and proper tea. 


Any ideas for unique wedding favors?

I need help finding wedding shoes! I am looking for a sandal/wedge that's not too high.

Oh Hi

Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening All.

My blog has slowly moved to the back burner. I do believe it is the result of developing a business, planning a wedding and generally feeling like no one actually cares much about my life. I've stopped reading blogs too. In a way, I have missed it. However, it's also become a time where I no longer compare my life with anyone elses and feel quite good about my own journey.

With that being said, I miss the idea of writing my thoughts and feeling close to people throughout the world, sharing those thoughts. Instagram has become my blog. It has depicted my life as of now quite closely really.

Butter + Salt has been doing very well and we feel so lucky. We have been lucky to cook for amazing people in amazing homes with AMAZING views of Lake Tahoe. Exciting things are happening, but I can't announce it quite yet.

The wedding plans have come to a slow stop as the fun part of planning is already done. I have decided to take on the task of hand writing all of the RSVP cards and addresses for the invitations, which I may need an extra cup of coffee for.

For instance, we also tasted pies for the wedding. After the pie tasting, everything else seems boring.

I for some odd reason have become a shopper and a quite girly girl. I love shoes, getting my hair done and painting my nails. I don't hate this new found love to dip into my femininity more. Tyler doesn't mind it either!

We moved to Reno, Nevada two weeks ago. We originally wanted to buy a house... however, student loans would not allow that to happen. We moved into a nice big apartment in a beautiful area with a lot of sidewalks. We love it. Porter and the cats love it and we live close to everything.


I joined a gym nearby and am currently so excited every time to go. I love being in  a gym environment for the most part. I get so much energy from watching other people workout. It makes me work harder.

I am also loving trying all the restaurants in Reno. They're stepping up their food scene game.

I suppose that's all for a long-ish update.

I am curious if anyone visits this blog anymore. If you do and sort of miss my posts, do tell me. I might rekindle the fire.
