This fall I’ve had a Clemson wedding and a South Carolina wedding.  I LOVE that I live in a state where people are so passionate about their football teams that they schedule weddings on bye weeks and set their wedding colors based on their favorite team.  Awesome!  For those of you that remember Morgan & Eric’s engagement session at USC you won’t be surprised to see this garnet themed wedding at Asbury Park Grove.;-)

I am so blessed to be able to say that all of the amazing couples I work with are super laid back and stress-free.  When the wedding is about celebrating marriage everything else falls into place and it makes for a wonderful, fun day with family and friends.  Morgan and Eric were excited and cool as a cucumber all day – so cool, in fact, that we ran ahead of schedule for almost the entire afternoon.  Miracles do happen people!

Now, let’s get this party started…. Morgan’s dress was just perfect for her – relaxed, comfortable and beautiful.

And just for the record I’d like to point out that the girls were dressed and ready 30 minutes before the guys!  Seriously, it was awesome!  So we took advantage of the situation and grabbed a few shots before the ceremony.  I love that Morgan & Eric spiced things up with their bridal party and had a Man of Honor and a Best Girl.  This was a fun crowd!

HUGE thanks to Hayley for shooting with me on Saturday!  She did an amazing job with the guys.  Apparently this crowd likes to wrestle (but Hayley survived the attack).;-)

A few more shots of the entire bridal party – didn’t I tell you this was a fun crowd!?!  I said, “Would y’all like to do a fun shot?” and one of the groomsmen yelled, “YES!”  After everyone else died laughing he said, “Or, you know, whatever everybody else wants to do.”:-)

I’m so happy for these two I could bust!  Congratulations Morgan & Eric, I know you’re going to have many, many happy years together!

I know I’ve said it before, but the first dance is still one of my most favorite parts of the wedding day.  These two danced to Neal McCoy’s “No Doubt About It” – classic.  And I’m pretty sure Morgan got a serenade.;-)

Definitely one of my most favorite father/daughter dances – so sweet.

And the mother/son dance quickly turned into a bear hug on the dance floor – awesome!

I’m pretty sure I mentioned that this was a fun crowd, right?  Right.  We’ll leave it at that.

I saw an ecard online the other day that said “November…The month where people who have complained on Facebook for the last 11 months become thankful for 30 days.”  I laughed a little, but it’s so true.  We think about certain things at specific times of the year, and thankfulness has become something that’s really in focus during the month of November.  I guess being thankful for one month out of the year isn’t as bad as never being thankful, but it does make you wonder why we can’t be thankful for 12 months.  I’m going to save my “things I’m thankful for” post for a little later this month and put a slightly different spin on things, but for my top 10 list this month I thought I’d stretch it a little further than thankfulness and share a few things I’m really loving right now.  I always love it when I hear about new things (apps, clothes, songs, etc.), so in an effort to spread a little extra happiness I thought I’d share a few with the blogosphere, so, here we go….

10. The Barkleys - Puppy in a car seat.  Need I say more?  These commercials make me want a Subaru and a new puppy all at the same time.  Potentially 2 of each.

9. Dark Sky Weather App – When I read the review on this app I knew I needed it – it’s crazy accurate for weather predictions and someone said that if it had been around in Salem, Mass in 1692 it would’ve been hung for witchcraft.

8. OSX Yosemite – It’s pretty.

7. Threes – This little game is so simple and yet so addicting.  But frankly if I’m going to spend downtime staring at my phone I’d rather be doing something that makes me think instead of looking at FB.

6. Chuck Taylor Slip Ons – ‘Tis the season that I normally wear the soles off of my favorite Chuck Taylors.  And as an added bonus, I happen to know that Ann Curry and I have the same pair in brown.  ;-)

5. SimplyJune.org – Seriously, how did I not know this existed???!!!!!  I can now watch Downton, Sherlock and Mr. Selfridge with the Brits for free!  I love the internet.

4. Long Sleeved T-shirts from Sevenly – The Flowly Long Sleeved Tee is my new favorite thing.  Soft, comfy and the designs rock the house.

3. Jimmy Fallon & Meghan Trainor singing “All About that Bass” with Classroom Instruments – Seriously, I just can’t get enough of this.  It makes me smile, sing, dance say “That booty booty, uh, that booty booty” as loud as possible.

2. She Reads Truth App – This app makes studying the bible very accessible for women, but I’m also in love with their free iphone lock screen wallpapers.  Beautiful designs, fantastic messages.

1. Anything on vinyl – I’ve been obsessed with our record player since we got it, but lately with the colder weather and rainy days I’m totally soaking up some tunes on vinyl.  There’s just nothing like Adele, coffee and a cozy blanket.

This year I continued my annual October tradition of reading all murder mysteries or spooky tales and once again, it didn’t disappoint!  I had a blast reading scary stuff and spent at least 4 sleepless nights worried about either my safety or the safety of book characters.;-) At one point the Hubs said, “Seriously, it’s after midnight, you need to go to bed.” and I replied, “Look honey, Jeffrey is BLEEDING OUT, do you hear me, BLEEDING OUT!  I can’t just leave him at a time like this.”  Oh, the trials and tribulations of being married to a bibliophile. But anywho, I digress, here’s a quick recap of how the spooky shook out in October…

Death Comes to Pemberley by PD James
Blood of my Blood by Barry Lyga (#3 in the Jasper Dent Series)
**The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (#2 in the Cormoran Strike Series)
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
A Faint Cold Fear by Karin Slaughter (#3 in the Grant County Series)
Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves
**Indelible by Karin Slaughter (#4 in the Grant County Series)

I added in Indelible at the last minute and I’m still working on The Silkworm, both awesome!

Picking a favorite for this month is way too hard, but I think I’m going to go with Blood of my Blood by Barry Lyga.  Seriously, the Jasper Dent series kept me on my toes from page 1 of book 1.  AMAZING series, and as I described it to the Hubs he just kept responding with “This is YA?”  Technically, yes, but realistically it’s VERY disturbing and graphic and I’m not sure I could’ve read it until at least college.  I can’t say enough good things about that series.

Honorable mention goes to Death Comes to Pemberley because PD James did an amazing job picking up where Pride and Prejudice left off and I loved every word in this book.  I also enjoyed the mini series on PBS the last 2 weeks, but as usual, the book was better so read it if you’re a Darcy fan.  I’m also really enjoying The Silkworm, so put that one on your list if you love a good detective novel!

Now usually in November I revert back to my regularly scheduled programming of YA Dystopian and time travel, but I’m a little bit addicted to the Grant County Series right now so I’m going to go ahead and finish that up and then lighten things up towards the end of the month.  Here’s where I’m headed for November, and as usual, let me know if you think I need to add anything to this list!

The Heir by Kiera Cass (#4 of the Selection Series)
Time’s Echo by Rysa Walker (A Chronos files novella)
Time’s Edge by Rysa Walker (#2 in the Chronos files)
Faithless by Karin Slaughter (#3 in the Grant County Series)
Beyond Reach by Karin Slaughter (#4 in the Grant County Series)
