Happy Friday! Hey, girl, hey!

This weekend I’m off to my bachelorette party! I’ll be sure to share photos and a special little surprise we are doing in the following weeks!

This week was an exciting one, Paul and I celebrated him finishing his CPA tests and then we both get to go off to our bachelor and bachelorette parties. I’m staying in Dallas for mine and he’s the one going out of town! I’ve taken lots of fun girls trips with my friends and so many of them don’t live here that it’s just special enough having them come to Dallas for the weekend.

My girlfriends did a Beyoncé [Feyoncé] theme for mine and it’s called #OnTheRun to the Altar Tour. I’ll have to show you all the invitations and all the lyrics they intertwined! It was one of the most creative and hilarious things I’ve ever seen.

We did our Bachelor/Bachelorette parties earlier for Paul’s work schedule and just to make sure everyone could make it! We each have 10 bridesmaids/groomsmen so it’s a lot of schedules to keep up with for this #TypeA bride.

My bridesmaids kept asking if I wanted to go out of town or take a trip and I just kept saying, “I want to sit by the pool and have girl talk.” With a month and a half left I’m having the realization that my nights won’t be filled with sleepovers and running around to grab ice cream at 10 p.m. with my best friends. I’ll still see them all the time but I forget a boy will live in this house, too! haha. I actually was talking to my married friends last week about balance and how you divide your weeks up between husband time, girlfriend time and me time. With Paul having studied for his CPA/worked like crazy the past few years I’ve never really seen him on week nights, so I haven’t learned to balance yet. So if you have any tips/lessons you learned I’d love to hear! I’m never home on week nights because I’m always wanting to make dinner plans or grab a movie with girlfriends, so I’m definitely interested to see how my schedule will organically change with marriage. All to say as this season of life comes to an end, I just wanted to spend the weekend with my girls doing what we’ve always done: girl chatting over Diet Cokes and queso.

And another white dress. Nothing new. But I will say I wore this dress 4 times last week [and I shamelessly instagrammed how I was an outfit repeater]. I’m all for repeats, it means you truly love what you are wearing and that’s the best investment you can make. This bag got pulled out too! I got this bag right before I started dating Paul. I legitimately purchased it the day I met him, and was carrying it the night we met. It came with me on all of our first dates and nervous chats so I think it will have to make an appearance this weekend as well! 😉

Enjoy your weekend pretty girls and wear all the clothes you love on repeat!

    We lived together before we got married, so life didn’t change too much for us. I think the biggest difference will be in the first few months, when you’re together constantly. You will need the girl time during the week, so don’t think you won’t see your ladyfriends on weeknights anymore! I find it’s easier to get together with my friends on weeknights, especially during wedding season! Have a great weekend!

  6. My husband and I did not live together before we got married, we both saved ourselves for marriage, and we can see now why God designed it that way (God is GOOD). Anyways, we both work from home and have been married for five years (no kids yet) Here are my tips. 1) When he knows I’m doing a girl thing he then schedules time with a friend he wants to catch up with and visa versa. This way we both get time in without cutting our time out. 2) We always do a mandatory date night each week (if we miss 1 we can tell!) 3) Put each other first no matter what, spending a relaxing evening at home together can do more good than what you may realize. There are times where we can’t make it to functions and say no to family, friends, and even work things. More money will never come before our marriage and every time we put each other first it has always paid off! This doesn’t mean you can’t do those things, it just means the love of your life comes before anything else, it’s a matter of priority. Just always keep in mind what’s priority, and for me that’s God, then hubby, then family and friends, then work… You get what I’m saying and you can’t go wrong that way :). 4) Make sure you read some of those marriage devotions and books even a few years after you are married. Now that you have experienced marriage it clicks in a different way. Jimmy Evans is our favorite!!! I can go on but this is already too long! I hope this may help a little, You have been a blessing to my life and you are going to make an amazing wife!!!
