Getting Official


Today was pretty special (see below) and here's what I wore…. skirt c/o Ruche, shoes c/o Modcloth and a striped tank top that I've had for years. I looove high waisted skirts this time of year. And, guess what? It's suddenly super HOT in Missouri. weird! Forecast says it's going to be pretty this weekend, though. (fingers crossed!)



Today we went to the court house to get our marriage license. It was pretty exciting. We spent the rest of the day crossing things off our to-do lists. Our guests start to arrive tomorrow and I'm pretty sure that the rest of this week is going to fly by super fast…. XO, elsie
