Some More House Progress


I guess it's about time for a house progress update! Everything related to the wedding has definitely taken precedent over the last few months. However, that also means a lot of new additions in registry gifts! Although a lot of what I'm sharing today are some furniture projects. It has been a lot of work. But also a lot of fun to watch some of these pieces come together! We have a big list of plans to tackle once we have settled down after the wedding. So there will be many more of these posts to come!

Console table
One of my favorite projects so far has been this console table. We found the table at an estate sale for $70. I found the mirror on Facebook Marketplace (for I think about $125), replaced the hardware from the shop in Cobb Antique Mall, and decorated with antiques I had been collecting. I also filled some of the pieces with dried and faux flowers, and I re-potted this faux orchid I found at Tuesday Morning!


Guest room
I still need to hang some things on the wall in here. But I up-cycled the desk, it was left in the basement from the previous homeowner.  I have already shared the process on Instagram. I had the toughest time trying to get the right shade of blue. The first chalk paint I bought ended up many shades lighter I expected. So it took lots of color mixing to get this French blue hue. I also found these curtains for a great deal on Wayfair, and I re-painted this shelving unit that was originally black. Plus the chair is from Pier 1 (but this one is super similar), and the rug is from Overstock.


Kitchen
This has mostly just been filling in registry gifts...and my mom made some custom curtains! We also re-painted and added cushions to the kitchen table chairs that were once in my parent's house. This experience was another paint color adventure, that ended in just selecting another color entirely. I was going for more of a slate blue, but the first color looked purple. So we ended up with a "Coastal Blue" instead. I also shared that whole process on Instagram!

Fitness Friday 30


Between being fully vaccinated and about 2 weeks out from our wedding, I've definitely amped up my workout routine since my last Fitness Friday post. I have tried quite a few more studios, and kept up with some streaming at home. So you could say I've made good friends with my thera-gun in the last few weeks. Which reminds me I should probably go roll out my hamstrings. But I'm also very excited for this weekend. One of my (pre-hip injury) favorites in Charlotte, West Kept Secret is coming to Atlanta for the day! They are also going to Charleston the following week. But anyway, here is more of my pre-wedding workout routine. I don't have much food to report, as I have been eating a lot of the same things. Mostly salads for lunch and chicken and veggies for dinner. Although we did try some great restaurants in Roswell when my parents were in town last weekend. I can't say those meals were healthy...but they sure were delicious!

Streaming:
Through Classpass I have recently tried: The Barre Code, TS Shred, Barre Method, Focus Barre and Yoga, and Motiv Barre. 
Plus my regular favorites: Fit Atelier, Rumble, Jabs, SweatNET, and Blogilates

In studio:
Pink Barre- I've been here a few times and it reminds me a lot of some of my favorite barre classes back in Charlotte. They have a great playlist, and always have some challenging movements!
Fuse- I've always wanted to try a trampoline class, and I enjoyed the one I tried here that combined the trampoline, kettlebells, and a little barre. 
Stellar Bodies- I've become a big fan of this megaformer studio. 
AKT- I tried their Bands class, and I loved it! It is probably the closest I will get to my favorite class in Charlotte, Ballet Fit Theory. It was half choreography that built up through class, and half sculpting. But you are using resistance from bands during the choreography portions. It was definitely unique, and I really enjoyed it! Their class times unfortunately are not the most convenient for me, but I'm sure I'll be back.
Barry's- I went to the Charlotte location quite a few times, so I had to visit the Atlanta location. I wish this one was more convenient for me to go more often, but it was great to stop back in to the Red Room!

I've also been going back to the Barre3 location and I Heart Pilates studios mentioned in my last post as well.

Food
  1. I've had a lot of chicken and veggie varieties on rotation lately. Mostly sweet potatoes, broccoli, asparagus, or zucchini. We got an air fryer at my bridal shower, and it cooks everything so much faster!
  2. I also can't stop buying the nut butter filled Clif bars, specifically the chocolate ones filled with peanut butter.
  3. We have a lot of exciting additions to the kitchen from wedding gifts. We haven't gotten to use very much of it yet. But I'll be reporting back with how we end up putting them to use them later!
It honestly might be awhile before my next installment of this series. At least there won't be a roundup of what I did in June. As I likely won't be doing very much after next week, during wedding week or the following 2 weeks we are taking for the honeymoon. But I promise there will be plenty of wedding content before then!

Wedding Wednesday: 30 Days Out


I'm kind of in total disbelief that we are a month out from our wedding! Well, really 31 days. But then it wouldn't be "Wedding Wednesday"....so this is likely going to be my last wedding post until after the festivities take place. A few things have changed, but now we are working on some finer details like the table numbers TJ and I are making, gifts for the wedding party, etc. So here are some progress updates since the "less than 100 days out" post!

Pre-Wedding Events
My mom's friends threw a beautiful shower for me in my hometown (where the wedding will also be), my bridesmaids and I went to Charleston (which got its own post here) for my bachelorette weekend, and TJ's family had a great couple's shower for us in Charlotte!
 
Invites out with expanded guest list
We are so very excited that all of the restrictions have been lifting just in time! If you missed any of my previous posts, our venue was previously only allowing about half of our guest list, masks would be required, and no dancing would be allowed. By the time our invitations went out, we were allowed to invite our full list. But weren't sure of if we would still have restrictions until something official came out from the state. Then last week's CDC announcement for those fully vaccinated led to North Carolina also lifting their restrictions, which our venue was following. So we will be having dancing without masks! My mom was also amazing in handling all of the invitation details (as she has been with all details!) and keeping up with the response cards.

Honeymoon Changes
We were all set to go to Puerto Rico, but the island unfortunately saw a recent increase in Covid cases. Which resulted in a 10pm curfew (with everything closing at 9pm), mask rules (from what we gathered, even on the beach), capacity limits in restaurants, and some tight Covid testing rules with airlines. The curfew has actually since lifted. But from what I've read, most of the other rules are still in place. Since we are both fully vaccinated, we would rather go somewhere without restrictions. So we have re-booked our trip to the Florida Keys!

Bridal Portraits
I had the most fun taking my bridal portraits back in early April. I cannot wait to share them, and almost wish I didn't have to wait until after the wedding to post them! I also had my hair and makeup trial done for the photos, so I got to see the full look over 2 months in advance.

Marriage License
This worked out a little easier than we were expecting, as we weren't sure if we would need to take a trip from Atlanta just for a marriage license appointment. But my home county (where the wedding is taking place) was conveniently still doing virtual appointments! We had the appointment all over a video call and the documents arrived in the mail within 2 days. Which was quite a relief due to the recent speed of the postal service.

Wedding Bands
We walked into a Zales a few months ago for TJ to figure out his ring size, and we ended up finding my wedding band! We weren't expecting to buy it that day, but I thought the style was somewhat unique and really complements my engagement ring. We got some ideas for TJ's ring that day as well. But didn't end up buying it until a little bit later from a smaller local jeweler.

There's also a full list of things that can't quite be broken down like: we have set our readings and songs for the Mass, completed church paperwork, and bought most of the gifts we will be giving. There's a much longer list of everything my wonderful mom has been handling! Her recent to-do's have been the wedding program and other paper needs like welcome bag tags, favors, and attending meetings to finalize the menu, floral details, and so much more!

Favorite Sarah Flint Styles



You've probably noticed I've become quite the fan of Sarah Flint shoes over the last few months. The classic styles are so beautiful and incredibly versatile. I've really enjoyed being a part of their Brand Ambassador program, and I think their Perfect Pumps will always be my favorite! The wider toe box and extra padding makes them so comfortable. Which is the goal of all of their styles, so I thought I would share a few of my other favorites. I am also of course loving their collaboration with American Ballet Theater for the Sachetto flat and the Odile silk scarf.  You can take $50 off your first pair of shoes with code "SARAHFLINT-BACARAB"!

Wedding Wednesday: My Bachelorette Weekend


My bridesmaids and I went to Charleston last weekend for my bachelorette, and it was the most fun! I wore all of the white dresses, we had perfect weather, and it was great to finally get all (except one) of my bridesmaids together! They had been group chatting each other for months, and some of them had met previously. But it was the best time getting them all in the same place to celebrate! My matron of honor is my best friend from college, and she kept just about everything a secret. So it was a weekend full of surprises!

Friday
My matron of honor flew in to Atlanta the night before, so it technically all started Thursday evening. We actually have not been able to see each other since her wedding over 2 years ago. She hadn't even met TJ yet either! So we had a little reunion, and she got to know him a little bit. Friday morning, we met with my friend also in the Atlanta area, who drove us to Charleston.
We stayed in a condo on King Street, and the first order of business before checking in was to find some food. We went to El Jefe for a late lunch. They had some great tacos, giant frozen margaritas, and even some people riding a mechanical bull at 3pm. My brother lives in Charleston. So we met up with him and his girlfriend, who is one of my bridesmaids, and she joined us from there.

We checked in to the condo, which was all decked out in pink balloons! This was also when I was reunited with the rest of my bridesmaids who came from Charlotte. We then started to get ready for dinner at Stars, where we had the best dinner! We also later spent some time on their rooftop bar. I've been to Charleston several times before, so I've always heard it was a big bachelorette destination. But I was one of very many girls in a white dress, sash, and veil that night!
We stopped in to another bar after the rooftop, but ended up going back to the condo on the earlier side. We were hoping the weather would allow for a beach day on Saturday, so we weren't trying to do it up too big to where we wouldn't make it there in the morning!

Saturday
We woke up a little late on Saturday with mimosas and bloody mary's. The weather ended up being just too cool for a beach day. So we ended up walking around Charleston for most of the day, and the weather was absolutely perfect for that! That is always my favorite thing to do in Charleston anyway.
We grabbed some iced lavender lattes at The Rise coffee bar and lunch at The Watch rooftop, both part of The Restoration Hotel. The rooftop was beautiful and had some great cocktails! We then just explored for awhile and saw all of the classic Charleston spots. Stopping into some shops, seeing Rainbow Row, the Pineapple Fountain, the pier, etc. We also found several Insta-worthy spots along the way. On our way back, we stopped in to Henry's and spent some time on their rooftop.
We had a pajama party in the condo that night, with Mellow Mushroom pizza, lots of games, and of course some more drinks!


Sunday
We woke up on the earlier side on Sunday to get checked out of the condo. You know it was a later twenties bachelorette party when no one got sick! We took one last walk around King St and stopped into a few shops before brunch. I ended up finding a cute dress from the Gretchen Scott Designs store, which had the cutest decor full of bright colors and bamboo furniture! We ended the trip with brunch at Fleet Landing on the way out. I had the best breakfast crabcake, and we just so happened to be at the same place as one of my friends from growing up. Of course we didn't know she was there until we had the sweet surprise of mimosas being sent over for the table! She actually lives in New York but was visiting her boyfriend there. So I even got to see her for a minute before we headed out! Then we went to our separate cars and made our ways back home. I was so sad to see it end, and wish we could do it all again this weekend! Thanks again to my wonderful bridesmaids for the best time!

Fitness Friday 29


Picking up where I left off on some Fitness Friday progress! My new job has the corporate discounted ClassPass, so I have been trying out some studios in the Atlanta area! I have been sticking to barre and pilates classes (avoiding cardio) because I am still wearing a mask to class. I'm unfortunately in a minority on that around here, but I got my fist vaccine earlier this week! So I can hopefully start trying some cardio after I have the second one. So, in between trying out some studios, I have been keeping up with some video workouts as well. Since I skipped last month, I thought I would stray from sharing my weekly workout schedule. I'm instead going to share the video services I have been using and studios I have tried out so far!

Workouts
Video:
Rumble TV- I did a week free trail and really enjoyed how they mix boxing and strength training.
Fit Atelier- My most frequented studio in Charlotte with my forever favorite class (taught by one of my bridesmaids), Ballet Fit Theory!
Blogilates- I love Cassey's shorter options (around 15-20 minutes) that still provide a good burn! You can find them on her website, YouTube, or her app, Body by Blogilates.
SweatNET- I've definitely been missing their popup workouts all over Charlotte, but I can still get some of the experience with streaming from their partner studios.
ClassPass Streaming- I have been enjoying seeing all of the options available to stream like Barry's, several barre 3 and Barre Code locations, as well as solidcore. Which I have been wanting to try in Atlanta, but isn't the most convenient location for me. There are even ballet classes you can stream from New York City!

In Studio:
Club Pilates- I had been meaning to try Club Pilates at one of the several locations in Charlotte, but thanks to my hip injury and COVID, it took until I moved to try one in Atlanta. It is a reformer studio and I tried the Balance class. The class was a little more stretching than I've seen on a reformer before, and some barre work. I haven't made it back yet, but I'm sure I will soon!
barre 3- I have tried one of their locations in Charlotte before, so I was excited to see there were a few to choose from in the Atlanta suburbs. I really like how they are a little different from other barre methods in that the movements are a little more based in yoga, and very grounded.
I Heart Pilates-  I tried an independent reformer studio in Roswell and really liked how they used the full variety of traditional pilates equipment. I have done more megaformer before, so it was nice to learn more of the traditional side of pilates.
SculptHouse- A megaformer pilates studio (and activewear boutique), and I have tried their Charlotte location before. So I had to try the original in Buckhead. I was so sore the next day, I will definitely be making my way back!

Food
  1. A recent dinner favorite has been this sweet potato ground turkey skillet. It is pretty simple to make and a little different from having chicken all the time.
  2. Also with sweet potatoes, another great option I've made several times lately is a simpler version of this 1 pan chicken, sweet potato, and broccoli dinner.
  3. On the snack front, I keep on buying Luna Bar protein bars. I used to always have a stash of their classic bars while I was in college and I'm currently loving these chocolate-y protein filled versions.

Wedding Wednesday: Less than 100 Days


I can't believe we are now less than 100 days out from our wedding! Oh and Happy St. Patrick's Day, I just had to post the green dress from our engagement photos for this post. I had mentioned in my last Wedding Wednesday post I would do a 6 month update, but was a little busy trying to get everything worked out to get to Atlanta at the time. So, here I am 3 months later...with 3 months left to go! Quite a few large aspects of planning have been very touch-and-go with Covid restrictions. 
We are currently at 30% capacity at our reception venue, which cut our guest list in half. We are basically at just family and wedding party. We are hopeful it will open up a bit to invite some more friends. But the venue also is not allowing cocktail hour or dancing beyond TJ and I's first dance, and the parent dances.  Additionally, we had to change rehearsal dinner venues as our original one lowered their capacity to just 16 people through the remainder of 2021. At this point, we are just thankful that North Carolina recently lifted their ban on alcohol sales after 9pm. 
However, I think things are really looking up as far as vaccines go. Both of our grandparents, our priest, my parents, some more family members on both sides, and a few friends have gotten at least the first shot already. So we are optimistic that at the very least, the older crowd will be all set by June. If we've learned anything over the last year, a lot can change in a few months time!

Let's pick up where we left off with what was "in progress" in the last post:
Wedding Website
This is now all set, we did end up using Zola and I really like their options.

Save the Dates and Invitations
We are working with a local shop and hoping not un-invite anyone. So we waited until we had an update from our reception venue in January to send out Save the Dates to our smaller list. We will hopefully have a longer list by the time invites are going out.

Honeymoon Planning
We are very excited to be heading to Puerto Rico for 10 days after the wedding!

Bridesmaids Dresses
I mentioned we were buying through Brideside, which became quite the adventure. I originally picked them because they had a Charlotte showroom, and had a home try-on option. So my Charlotte girls got to try on dresses there. Then the ones out of town had a few styles sent through the mail that they were able to try on at home. The dresses were supposed to arrive in December, but Brideside went out of business with no warning just a few weeks before. Luckily, we had ordered styles from a larger bridesmaid's site, so we didn't have to completely start from scratch. Brideside had sent them the orders, but not the money. So my girls all had to file credit card disputes, and we had to re-order all of the dresses. But the new order arrived in January, and as of last week, everyone thankfully got their money back!

Currently in progress:
Welcome Bags
My mom is all over these, and I think having a lot of fun putting them together!

Groomsmen Attire
TJ recently looked at some details and we are looking for a bow-tie outside of the tux rental, so he will be able to keep part of his wedding look.

Pre-Cana and Mass Details
As I have mentioned in some past posts, we are getting married in a Catholic church. So we have completed the virtual version of a Pre-Cana course, but still have some more to do with a priest. We also still need to pick our readings and the music for the Mass.

Reception Details
We have a day-of coordinator helping us out with some of these more fine-tuned details like a welcome sign, escort cards, etc.

Bridal Portraits
I just picked my dress up from being altered, and will be having my hair and makeup trial done when I have my portraits taken in April. I also ended up choosing a different pair of shoes!

Pre-wedding Events
My mom's sweet friends are throwing me a bridal shower in a few weeks, my best friend has planned a bachelorette weekend in Charleston, and TJ's family is having a couple's shower for us closer to the main event!

A Little House Progress


Let me start this post off by saying I'm really trying to get back to least 1 post per week! I've let my posting fall so far behind ever since everything with the move started to ramp up last fall. Most of September-December was spent trying to find a house and a job at the same time. On top of planning a wedding and the regular holiday things. Then I moved in January, started work early February, and am finally starting to feel settled. So I thought it would be fun to share some of the progress on the house! It has been a lot of fun, and has kind of taken my attention entirely away from posting about outfits. So, sorry about that on the content end. I also haven't figured out a photographer in Georgia yet. So for now, I will probably be doing some more posts like this as we get further along with decorating!

Painted the living room
We still need a few major things in this room, so for now here's a corner to show the paint color. The entire house was painted gray before it was sold. This room was previously a dining room. It was painted the same shade of light gray above the moulding and a darker taupe gray below it. So we brightened it up by painting it Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue, and a classic white. We like the gray through the house for the most part though. We plan on maybe painting 2 more rooms in different colors. 

Made pillows for the family room
I had a few weeks in between leaving Charlotte and starting work in Atlanta, which I spent at my parent's house. We got so much wedding stuff done in that time, and my mom showed me how to make pillow covers. I had found this fabric for a great deal at an antique store, and it was a lot of fun to make them together.

Decorating the guest bedroom
The guest room is basically most of what was in my apartment in Charlotte, and it will be my office area. So there isn't a whole lot to do in here. There was a desk left in the basement from the previous homeowners that I'm still in the process of painting blue. I also had a coat rack/shelf unit in my apartment that I'll be painting white. I ordered some toile curtains, just got a full length mirror in, and a Greek key rug as a Christmas present. I really just need to put some things on the walls, and I should be all set with that room! 

Found a kitchen table
The previous homeowners left a very large island size table that I just didn't think fit the space very well. Plus it is counter height, and I would just rather have standard height for a table we are going to use so often. So when TJ and I found this classic round solid wood table at an estate sale, I managed to convince him that we needed it. We weren't planning on buying furniture that day, so it was an adventure getting it in the car. But we got it for just $100, when we've found similar tables from the same manufacturer selling for over $2,000. So I think it was worth it! My parents also gave us their old kitchen table chairs, so my next project is to paint them. I'll wait to share how it all looks in the space until the chairs are done.

Not much else was needed in the kitchen
I would have picked just about everything that the previous homeowners did with the kitchen renovation. So I've just been having some fun decorating it!

Basement
We have a basement that is separated into 2 rooms, one is finished and the other is not. So we are using the finished room as TJ's office and a second TV area, and the unfinished room as a gym area. Within the last week, TJ has had some work done in that area. There was only 1 electrical outlet, so he had a few more installed, and had the HVAC brought over from the main unit into the finished room. Now he's working on furnishing the rest of it.

We have quite a few upcoming projects for other rooms, and some might be done much quicker than others. But I think this will be a fun series to document it along the way!

Valentine's and President's Day Sales


Who's up for some end of season shopping?! This round of sales is always one of my favorites, that I don't think gets enough hype. Maybe it also just gets me excited for spring?

Fitness Friday 28


Well, some time has definitely gotten away from me. I'm picking the Fitness Friday series back up from my last one in September! Whoops, life has just been way too crazy with leaving Charlotte, getting settled in Atlanta, job searching, and wedding planning all at the same time. Between all of the previously mentioned things going on, and studios still being limited, I wasn't working out as much as usual at the end of the year. But I was able to pick it back up in January. I started streaming with my Charlotte favorite Fit Atelier, did some of the Blogilates 21 Day Tone challenge, and some workouts with my mom and her trainer at their country club. Plus, now that I have a full kitchen to cook in, have been trying some great new recipes! 

Workouts
Week of 1/4-1/10
3 days with 2 videos each from the Blogilates 21 Day Tone
Ballet Fit Theory at Fit Atelier (still outdoors, and for the last time)
305 Fitness Zoom (with Janay)

Week of 1/11-1/17
Moving took up about 3 days of this week
Ballet Fit Theory on Fit Atelier streaming
Jabs Choreo x Cardio (they give you a free class to use within 2 weeks of your birthday!)

Week of 1/18-1/24
Toned upper body on Fit Atelier streaming and Blogilates lower body
Trainer workout at parent's country club
Ballet Fit Theory on Fit Atelier streaming

Week of 1/25-1/31
Blogilates arms, abs, glutes
Trainer workout at parent's country club
Toned lower body and Blogilates upper body

Food
  1. I might have found all 3 of these recipes from Tiktok. The first one being the 2 ingredient bagels, made with flour and Greek yogurt. I've made them 3 times in the last few months and I was surprised how easy they are to make. I had been meaning to try dairy free cream cheese, which I would also really liked with these bagels.
  2. I know these turkey meatballs are going to become a staple dinner option. I served them exactly how the video did, and I loved them! My parents and TJ did as well.
  3. I most recently made the feta tomato pasta that is causing grocery stores to sell out of a feta cheese. It is essentially fancy mac and cheese, and I think it lives up to the hype!

Activewear
Sneakers | Light blue crop top | Light blue leggings | Pink top | Gray crop top | Gray biker shorts | Navy star top | Navy star leggings

27


Gal Meets Glam "Jolie" coat (similar here) | Similar sequin dress | Sarah Flint heels c/o (use code "SARAHFLINT-BACARAB for $50 off)

Today, I am 27! That sounds kinda old, but I'm very excited for what this year has in store. My birthday being so close to the new year always lets me group together hopes and goals for the calendar new year and age at the same time. I am moving out of the apartment I have spent all of my time in Charlotte (over 4 years) in next week. I probably mention this every year, but my dad's birthday was yesterday (I arrived at almost 5am following his 29th), so my parents are coming down for one last weekend in Charlotte to celebrate both days. As sad as it is to leave, I'm very excited to get to Atlanta. I think the pandemic restrictions have made it easier to go, since we haven't really been able to enjoy much of what we love about living in Charlotte for almost a year now. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can start exploring Atlanta. Either way, I can't wait to get married in June and create a home with TJ! Even if there isn't much progress and we have to cut the guest list. I have a good feeling about 27, and 2021.

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale 2021 Picks


Start the new year off with a Lilly Pulitzer sale! Apologies I did not get my usual pre-sale post up this round, some house stuff got in the way. But the big bi-annual sale is back today and tomorrow! I actually will not be shopping this time around, as my focus is mostly on the house at the moment. But there's plenty of great deals and I'm linking a few of my favorites below. The items on the bottom row I own in different colors or prints and I highly recommend any of them!


Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
