Eat Drink & Be Mary: F I V E .

2.20.2015

F I V E .

Dear Friday, you hardly feel like a Friday thanks to the snow canceling school all week.  But I suppose I'll celebrate you anyways.

On the bright side, I am looking forward to some wedding plans I have scheduled for tomorrow, so I guess that's one good reason to be extra happy about it being Friday today.  So I'll spare you my cabin fever babbling, and get on with my five today. 


Linking up with Oh Hey, Friday! and the girls behind 5 on Friday as usual, you should too!


ONE | In the Kitchen.


I made homemade pizza for the first time this week (thank you snow day #3) and it was a total success.  I may or may not have danced around the kitchen with excitement in celebration for a savory success.  

Any suggestions for my next culinary adventure?




TWO | Wedding Party Gifts.

I have been searching all over the inter-webs to find gifts for our bridal party, parents, and everyone who is helping us during this whirlwind towards our wedding day.  I have several ideas/plans for my girls, but would love some suggestions for our parents.  


What do you do for your parents; or do you know any etsy shops I should check out?





THREE | Cup of Joe?

Did you need to take a rain check on our coffee date earlier this week?  Let's catch up this weekend.  I can't wait to dish.



FOUR | Black Onyx.

When we went to pick out our wedding bands, I spotted a black onyx gem and fell in love.  I've been totally obsessed with them ever since.  What is your favorite gem?  diamond doesn't count ;)
these earrings...oh my word!  #obsessed


FIVE | Will there every be a day that I'm not gushing over these engagement pictures?  Probably not.





Happy Weekending, or as I like to say, the way the past week has gone.  #whatdayisit
Keep up with my wedding shenanigans on Insta @maryjean_xo.

  4. I still gush over our engagement photos five years later! I was in a wedding last summer and the bride gave us all cover ups like the ones in the link below. She had them monogrammed so we wore them while we were getting ready. I wore mine for the rest of the summer over a bathing suit!

  6. Ughhhhhh gifts for everyone was hard for me too! I ended up doing a travel bag filled with my "favorite things for my favorite ladies." He did a monogrammed travel bag for his friends (we had a destination wedding). Good luck!!!

  13. I have some pretty good ideas for my bridesmaids and he does for his guys; it's the parents that have been the hardest so far. I want to get them something with a meaningful saying, but also that they'll use. Sounds like you found some awesome gifts!

  14. I was totally impressed with myself, cooking is totally not my thing. But that fiancé of mine can't live off of sweets I suppose. ;) Not to mention it was pretty easy too!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh good to know I won't be the only one. ;) That's such an awesome idea, and those cover ups are really cute. I have some idea from the bridesmaids, it's the parents I'm struggling with.

  16. It was absolutely delicious Julia. I was pretty thrilled with how it came out, since I'm not that skilled at cooking. :)

  17. Oh I can't wait to see y'alls pictures either. Did you ever tell how y'all decided on your date?


    Thanks, for the high five. I was pretty amazed that I accomplished something not bakery related. I'm definitely down to try a two ingredient crust; that's totally right up my alley. I'll check it out now!

  25. Hi Mary! Sorry I'm just getting back to you on the date of our wedding details: The 13th is our dating anniversary (November 13th) and May 13th is exactly 6 months apart from that anniversary as well. Plus, I knew keeping it a 13 would let Wade easily remember our anniversary AND I've always wanted a Spring wedding. It's a win-win. :) We are waiting a couple of years since we are planning our move from being LDR to Texas to live together (finally! after 4+ years of dating!) this Summer. And we want to save money for our wedding date, so there's no hurry!

  26. I had no clue y'all were moving in together this summer..how exciting!! Yayy!!!

  27. Your engagement pics are so cute! Morganite is my favorite gemstone. Hope it will be in my engagement ring one day!

  28. Thanks girl, I'm pretty pleased with how they all turned out. That would be such an unique engagement ring; love that idea!
