just lovely.

One of my wonderful friends, Erin, is getting married this September. She chose me as one of her Bridesmaids! This is what I think I'm going to wear.I don't normally do strapless, but I LOVE this dress and really think it might work. After the wedding I can wear it with a cardigan and flats, in typical Martha style.

shiny and new!

Ah, the end of the semester is almost here! I have such a hard time managing my time. When I'm not doing schoolwork all I want to do is nothing. But I thought I would show you what Ben and I have been up to, besides the ever growing list of wedding plans!
This is the bike Ben got me for my birthday! A 1961 Schwinn! He wanted to get me one for my previous birthday, but couldn't find one until now. Ain't she a beauty?
Me thanking Ben for said bike. He looks confused.
A break from riding along Lake Michigan. Beautiful Day!

cats vs. unicorns

I have to apologize for my erratic blogging. We got back from Lawrence a week ago, and I've been so swamped with school that I just haven't had time to blog. =( So, please forgive me! I promise I will have a lot to blog about very soon!!
We had a lot of fun in Lawrence. It was one of the best trips we've had, minus the yucky weather! We really got a lot accomplished in the ways of wedding planning. We changed our minds completely about where to get married! We will now be gettin' hitched at the Alton Ballroom at Pachamama's in Downtown Lawrence. We couldn't be happier about this! It's absolutely gorgeous!Here Mallory, Fally and I are at the Star Bar, also at Pachamama's. It has a really nice ambiance... and good cocktails!
We got pretty silly, or rather, Ben and Joe did. Here is Ben with one of his Groomsmen.We got crazy with tattoos. Yep, we're hardcore! Cats and Unicorns all the way!
