Eat Drink & Be Mary: F I V E on F R I D A Y


F I V E on F R I D A Y

Today my parents and I are moving almost all of my stuff into our new house.  Well new to us.  I cannot believe that today begins my move to SC.  I'm excited and nervous all at the same time.  Let the painting and furniture makeovers begin!

Now for some randomness as regularly scheduled... 

ONE || 1,095 days.
Tomorrow Thomas and I will have been dating for 1,095 days.  wow!  Three years with my sweet man that is soon to be my husband.  And to celebrate, we're having our couples shower thrown by his family and friends.  Mix that with getting to spend the next 5 days with him and I couldn't be more thrilled.

TWO || A Letter to girls in a LDR.
I may or may not have teared up a little writing this post.  It's amazing how far Thomas and I have come since the beginning of our long distance relationship.

THREE || "Something Old"
My mom and I worked on a DIY project this week, to make my something old useable for my wedding.  I'm pretty thrilled with how it turned out, and it was SUPER easy.  Check that one of the "to-do" list.  eek!

The fourth of July will be here before you know it.  Why not make these cute grill inspired cupcakes.  Trust me they're easy and you don't need any fancy equipment to make them.

FIVE || Monogram Ring.
A little bit ago I talked about wanting a open monogrammed ring.  I found this one on Etsy, thanks to my college roommate.  Not only is it an amazing price, but I am thrilled with how it turned out.  If you are wanting a monogrammed ring I highly suggest looking into this one.

And that's it folks.  I hope your looking forward to your weekend as much as I am.  
Keep up with my weekend plans on Insta & Twitter.

Oh Hey, Friday!  5 on FridayThat Friday Blog HopFriday Favorites,  Five things Friday


  1. Have fun moving! It sounds so exciting for you and your hubby-to-be! I am definitely going to check into that ring. I've been wanting one forever! :)
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Ooo how exciting to be moving into your home! Love that pic of you two, so cute! Happy Friday!

  3. How have I never figured out that your fiancé is a firefighter!?!? So is my husband!! Congrats on your big move this weekend! I'm sure it will be so nice to be settled into your new home :)

  4. you two are the cutest <3 i hope you have little tiny ginger babies eventually.

  5. Your excitement makes me feel all giddy and happy! I remember those days well and it gives me butterflies just thinking about it. Enjoy it all, girlfriend! :)

  6. I'm so excited to read about everything! The move, the wedding, your new life. Congrats! Has it been hard planning a wedding with your fiance long distance?

  7. That ring is cute! I wonder if it comes in gold?

  8. Good luck with your move! And those cupcakes look delicious! Xo, Stephanie

  9. I love the ring, I got it in silver. I'm pretty sure it comes in gold though.

  10. Thanks, practically everything has been moved down there. After we get back from the honeymoon the unpacking will begin..I don't look forward to that one bit.

  11. Luckily the wedding planning hasn't been complicated at all because my fiance is very easy going. I'm where the wedding is taking place so that definitely helps. Have you started planning yet?

  12. Thanks love! I'm pretty excited about all that is happening in my life right now too. It's been pretty easy because Thomas is super easy going. Also, wedding planning has helped the long distance time go by faster! :)

  13. I'm pretty much giddy all the time. Now that we're getting down to the last days, I'm starting to get a little nervous about getting everything done. But as long as everyone shows up that's all that will really matter. I'm definitely soaking it in and enjoying it while it lasts.

  14. Thanks Stephanie. Thomas swears that if the male is red headed you are more likely to have red headed I suppose we'll see if he's right in a couple years. ;)

  15. Me too Somer. It's a great price, and I finally ordered mine and LOVE it.!

  16. He surely is. :) I didn't know yours was either, haha. Everything is moved in, but the unpacking won't begin until after the honeymoon. I'm not going to lie I'm dreading having to unpack and find places for everything. But with my husband by my side, I'm sure it won't be too bad. ;)


It makes me so happy each time you leave a comment. I love connecting with my readers! Happy blogging friends.
