If you are new around here, or just forgot I got married on October 10th! It was the best day of my life. Don’t forget to check out the sneak peak of our wedding!
During the entire wedding process, I was very price conscious about everything. We went with, the idea of not setting a budget.. Crazy Right? Well No- it was perfect for us! Our wedding invitations could not have been more perfect! I was so lucky that I found Jessie, at Howl Creative Co.
She made the entire process so easy on me! I knew I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on our wedding invitations, because they just get thrown away at the end of the day, but I knew I wanted them to go with the them of our wedding. They did exactly that!

The process was so easy! I picked out the them that I wanted. Jessie, at Howl Creative Co.
had so many different designs and they are all amazing, so it was a little tough to decide what I wanted!
Once I picked out my design I was able to make some changes to make it personalized to me and my wedding! It only took one change, in wording & I knew that these were my invites! Once Jessie, at Howl Creative Co.
sent me the PDF, I ordered the prints from Vistaprint and before I knew it my invites were out!
5 Days. I would say the official freak out mode as started! But, while I’m not freaking out, I thought that I would share a little sneak peak of some of our decorations! These pumpkin decals are THE BEST. And of course come from the amazing Jennifer over at For Namesakes. If you recall, that is where I got the our first police family decor. I love this shop, everything that Jennifer has in her shop, is wonderful!
These pumpkins will be the perfect addition to our wedding decor!
The best part about this post, For Namesakes
, has buy one decal get one free! They are only 5 dollars! That is such a wonderful deal!
Five Days A Week.
Five days every single week, the love of my life walks out that door. I tell him I love him & be safe, and pray that nothing happens to him. I pray for all the officers out there risking their lives to protect us.
Five days a week, I wonder what he is doing on patrol. I wonder if he is safe and okay. Five days a week he walks out that door, knowing he could never come back. Five days a week I hold my breath and say a little prayer.
Five days a week, he comes in that door. Takes off his uniform, vest and gun & gives me a kiss. Five days a week I wait for that door to open. The times it opens a minute late, I worry and all these thoughts go in my head. Five days a week I tell the love of my life that I love him, and watch him walk out that door.
I wanted to have him a reminder to be safe at work, even when I am not there to tell him when he goes to work. I want him to know that I am always thinking of him when he puts on his duty gear and walks out into a world where more people are starting to hate police officers. I want him to know that he always needs to be safe.
When I decided to re-do our door, I thought it would be perfect to put this amazing decal on it. Thanks to Imprinted Decals, I was able to find the perfect decal. It was shipped super fast! I was really nervous about putting in on my door, but it was on so easy!
Jennifer from Imprinted Decals, has some amazing things in her shop! You must go check her out, I’m sure you can find a decal you’ll fall in love with!
I received products in exchange for my honest oponion
Everyone has that one place in the house where you keep special things at. Our SPECIAL place is in a little table at the end of our kitchen.
The Dachshund Picture– This is from my Grandparents house. The picture was hanging on their wall since I can remember. When they moved out of the house that my father grew up in I was able to take this picture. I love this picture and it reminds me of all the good times that I had with my grandparents. It just so happens that our puppy Penny looks exactly like that!
The Police Engagement Picture- Marrying a Police Officer is us. Marrying Justin means I am marrying a police officer. Being in the police family is very important to me!
The Knight Pillow- This pillow is the start of something new. Brenda from Green Acre Gifts made this pillow and it is amazing. It was exactly what I wanted! ((My soon to be last name is so much shorter, so its nice being able to display it!)) Brenda from Green Acre Gifts was amazing to work with. Her customer service is wonderful & her other products are awesome!
The Picture Frame- Justin’s dad passed away a couple years ago. I love having pictures of him around our house. I makes us know that he is always here with us. Justin got this frame at his funeral, and I love having it in our house. I know that he is with us every day, this is just a little reminder.
Do you have a special place in your house?
I love our special place.
Check out the Etsy Store Mentioned In The Post
For awhile now I have been looking for Mr. & Mrs. pillows for our master bedroom!
I knew I wanted burlap, but other than that, I was pretty open to anything!
I was on Etsy, and I came across this amazing store!
These pillows are PERFECT!
It is so exciting to be able to have something Mr. & Mrs. in our bedroom! It is hard to believe one day (sooner than later) I will be his Mrs!
These would make perfect gifts if you have a wedding this year! Something so personalized, and something they will treasure forever!
Go check this shop out!!
Justin and I get married 5 months from yesterday!
How crazy, we really have a lot to do and need to go full gear into wedding planning!!
But, before I talk about wedding planning I want to show you an amazing shirt I got, it will be perfect to wear while wedding planning & on the honeymoon!
This wording is thin black glitter and is perfectly done!
This shop is amazing, and everything is designed perfectly!!
has an eye for perfection! Everything she makes look amazing!
Here is another item, that I have a slight obsession with!
The glitter, the skinny water bottle.. can you say AMAZING!
Make sure you are following her on Instagram to keep up with all her amazing designs!
Our wedding is less than 6 months away!
I honestly can’t believe it! I feel like we have so much to do!
But for now, I want to do a recap of our Wedding Party!
For the Bridesmaids:
I have three bridesmaids:
my two sisters & Justin’s sisters!
Everyone is a “bridesmaid” I not having a Maid of Honor. It was too difficult to decide on who would be, so I thought it would just be easier to not give more titles!
For the Groomsmen…
Justin has his three close friends and his brother-in-law.
Once again he is not having a Best Man, for the same reason… It is just easier.. and any time we can make this whole wedding process easier we run with it!
Love one of the products- Check below to see where you can get them!!
How did you choose your wedding party?
Are you following me on Instagram? If not, you should go follow me!
If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen this amazing mug from White Hot Design
This mug could not fit my personality any better! I use it every morning & it still in perfect shape! I was kind of worried about the glitter, it still looks brand new after several uses!
Look at that ring & that mug! That mug makes my Saturday morning coffee so much better!
Look at what else she has in her shop!
received a product for review, all thoughts and opinions are my own
Make sure you go follow her so you can keep up with all her amazing new items!
So, I HARDLY ever take off my engagement ring.
If I am painting, doing yard work, or some crazy project I’ll take off my ring.
But I feel lost without my ring! & I always freak that I will loose my ring! But now thanks to Pearls & Pennies
I know my ring will be safe when it is not on my hand!
This is THE perfect ring dish!
I love having that “go-to” place to put my ring! I never have to worry about it now!
Ring dishes are wonderful and all, but now for something a little fun!!
With this wedding coming up, I should stop drinking and start working out!! Maybe this amazing wine tumbler from Pearls & Pennies
will give me that urge to work out.. or maybe it will give me the urge to drink more!
