Wedding planning and fishing. These two things have definitely been our main focuses these last couple of weeks, and it has been magical! That is just the best way I can describe it. Today, we started out the day with a yummy homemade breakfast and then went to try on suits for the big day! When Greg tried on the first suit I immediately got butterflies! He looked so handsome, and I felt like it was a little fun glimpse into our wedding day on June 1oth. I am so happy that we are only are only 76 days away! We are just so excited, and I feel like everything is coming together so nicely. We also received our invitations on Saturday, and I cannot wait to send them out. They came all packaged up in a big box that I tore into the second I got them in the house. There is just something about seeing what you’ve picked out in real life. I ordered them online so I couldn’t wait to touch them and see them! They fit the theme perfectly and are also the perfect shades of blue and pink- our favorites :).
After picking out the suits we went to Weldon Springs in Clinton, IL to do some fishing. It was a little rainy today so Greg picked this spot that has this covered pier in case it started raining hard. He wanted to make sure we had the perfect place for cover! I also love the piers at Weldon Springs because they look like they’re from Asia which is super cute. Luckily, it only drizzled a little bit, and we had our rain jackets on so we got to be out in the fresh air for awhile. We finished the night with dinner at Outback Steakhouse. We hadn’t been there in forever, and it really hit the spot!
Finally, a little more wedding news, lol. I finished our wedding website this week and wanted to share it with you all! Click the link to check it out. It has the story on how we met and our magical engagement!

I hope you all had the most relaxing weekend! Greg and I sure did. For whatever reason last week felt so so long and somewhat stressful, and this weekend was exactly what we needed. Saturday night we cuddled on the couch, and I totally zonked out at like 7pm and slept like a full 12 hours! It was revitalizing, and I woke up the happiest ever! We also took it super easy this morning. We went and had french toast and omelets at the Times Past Inn , walked around Dick’s Sporting Goods, and then went out to Lake Evergreen for some fishing. It was so nice to just be able to chill and cuddle and relax together. Also, I am not so sure if I am ready for Monday to come yet lol. Can we just relive Sundays forever?! That would be the dream life.
Anyway, these pictures are from last Sunday (we took some today, too, but I felt like these should come first). Last week was just so crazy and got away from me, so here they are! We took a quick little fishing trip before dinner, and I absolutely loved this spot. This was at Lake Evergreen too, but we had to walk down this hill and over some rocks to get to it. It felt super adventurous. Greg and I are both so happy that fishing season is here, and now I am ready for some serious sunshine and dresses and taking the kayaks out!
And finally a few of my favorite things about Sundays….
- All the extra cuddles we have time for!
- Lighting a vanilla candle when we roll out of bed. It just makes our house smell so lovey dovey!
- Getting all dressed up for our Sunday breakfast dates! (Greg gets some extra sleep, and I get all dolled up. I love it!)
- The unlimited hot coffee at Bob Evans or wherever we decide to get breakfast 🙂
- Riding in Greg’s truck, listening to country, while we’re on our way to our weekly adventure.
- Ending the night with a great movie!

This is our trip to North Carolina back in May! Greg and I needed a relaxing vacation right after I graduated, and this one was spontaneous and exactly what we needed. We went to North Carolina with our kayaks on top of our Ford Escape, and it was a twisty ride in those mountains with those on top of our car lol!
It was the first time I had ever seen the Smoky Mountains (or any mountains), and it was so beautiful, green, and different than anything I had ever experienced. We stayed in this nautical themed cabin that was just too cute for words! I honestly wished we could have taken the cabin home with us! We relaxed in the hot tub at night, fished and kayaked all day, took a bike ride, and even got in a round of mini golf (I think we tied ;). Lake Lure was the perfectly hidden vacation spot.
