No school work June!

So far I have held to my "no school work June" rule that I set for myself. Well I have sort of stuck to my rule, with a few exceptions here and there along with constant pinning on Pinterest. 

The second weekend in June, I took a trip to Orange Beach, Alabama for my long-awaited "Bachelorette Retreat!" It was exactly like it sounds... relaxing! My main goals were to get away, get a little sun, and RELAX! That is just what I did. No party scene for me, just a little winding down after a long school year with curriculum changes and wedding planning. Ross and his buddies went to Pensacola Beach, Florida while we were here and I can verify that there were no "Hangover" the movie type ordeals. They all came home on time and safe. lol That's all I wanted. Anyway, here are the pictures of the view from our condo!

I made these mason jars for myself and the rest of my bridal party! They are for sale in my etsy shop if you are interested in one!

So relaxing!!

After Orange Beach, it was back to Operation: Make Time Pass Fast so I can get to this wedding!! 
These are the bags I made for my bridesmaids! The chevron iron on was bought at Hobby Lobby along with the bags! I used my Silhouette Portrait Machine to cut out the letters. I then ironed them on and it 15 minutes, these bags were complete! So very simple!! 

This past Friday, we were apply for our MARRIAGE LICENSE!!!!
Please excuse his face, he can never take a serious picture, but you get the point!! 

This past Saturday we had an AMAZING rehearsal dinner! It was held at one of my bridesmaid's cafe in downtown Houma, La- Coley's Cafe! 

The dinner was absolutely perfect! I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. To have all of our closest friends and family in one place, mingling, and having a great time in celebration of our marriage just left me speechless. I can only imagine how I will feel tomorrow at our WEDDING!

Thanks again Nicole and her staff at Coley's Cafe!

Our gifts for our bridal party and parents!

Ross and some of his groomsman!

Next time I post, I will be Mrs. DeRoche!
Tomorrow, I become a wife!! :-)


  1. Hey, what an interesting post on Holidays fun!! I am so obsessed to read this. This post reminds me of party that I hosted at beautiful Los Angeles wedding venues for my sister. It was planning by professional planner so it turned out to be very interesting and enjoyable as well.
