Bermuda | Part II

We arrived at Bermuda on Sunday afternoon. We didn't get off the boat that day because we were told that most of the shops and attractions were closed. On Monday we got off the boat and headed over to the bus/water taxi lines. We bought our passes and hopped on the water ferry to Hamilton, the main city in Bermuda.

Once in Hamilton, we got on the bus to Saint George's where we first went to the Crystal Caves. We didn't even think we were going to make it to the Crystal Caves... The bus rides are insane!! The roads are so narrow that there are times where the trees actually brushed against the bus windows. Not to mention the crazy moped drivers that weaved in and out between the buses. Yikes.

After the Crystal Caves we walked around then trying to find a spot to jet ski.

We asked the locals where to go to jet ski and we were sent all over the island. In the end we ended up back to where we started, our cruise boat. Right off the boat there was a jet ski place. The jet skiing was my absolute favorite part of the vacation. I went on the back of Jack's. We went out with a tour guide who stopped at different locations to point out some history of Bermuda. At one point we jet skied right though the Bermuda Triangle! 

On Tuesday, our last day in Bermuda we went to Pink Sand Beach. So beautiful. The sand is indescribable. It is powder soft. Not one pebble, rock, or shell. 


Bermuda | Part I

I am sad to say vacation is officially over. This Monday morning is going to require 10 cups of coffee.

Bright and early Friday morning on the bus ride to Boston!

As we were walking on the boat

We didn't do too much that first day. We got on the boat early in the day and we didn't set sail until a little after 4pm.

Jack forgot his bathing suit. So we stop at the shop on the ship and had a little fun.

I didn't take too many pictures on the ship. It was a pain to carry around a camera/phone. The second day on the boat, Saturday, was the wedding reception we went to. We all got dressed up in our bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen outfits. Every night in the "grand atrium" there was professional pictures. We took our picture the night of the wedding. We didn't buy it but I snuck a picture of the picture! Shhhh.

We went to the shows on the ship almost every night. That was my favorite part of being on the ship. They were so good! 

Our room keeper was so nice. Love the towel animals, he didn't leave one every day, I couldn't believe the first night he left a towel animal it was a dog!

My favorite two days were the two days we were docked in Bermuda.

More about our adventures in Bermuda tomorrow!


Rustic Romance Inspiration

Sorry for the sporadic positing these last two weeks (and sorry for missing wedding Wednesday last week!) I have been insanely busy! Oh and we are leaving for the cruise to Bermuda on Friday! So I will not be posting until we get back.

Today I wanted to share some of the ideas I am obsessing over for our wedding. The theme we are going for is "romantic" (is that even a theme?) but I also love the rustic look/feel. Jack isn't a huge "rustic-y" person. But we decided to have a rustic romance wedding. Neatural color pallet + lots of candles + baby's breath + flowing script = my version of rustic romance! 

I am picturing our center pieces to have a wood slab with a crocheted doily draped over it with a mason jar filled with baby's breath and small votives with lit candles danced around the table. Ahhh!

I have had my eye on these table numbers from BetterOffWed for a while now.

I am obsessed with that flow-y font.  It matches the font on the Save the Dates we will be ordering (once our engagement pictures are done!) and the invitations I have in mind.  I also think I want to get the "love" cake topper from BetterOffWed.

Weekend Recap

This weekend was a busy one! But fun to say the least!  We had our friends wedding this weekend, which both Jack and I were in the wedding party.  It was so beautiful and perfect in every way.  

We started the wedding weekend Friday night by going to the reception hall to set up.  There was so much to do and we had limited time to set up, but there were lots people there to help. It was fun and got it done pretty quick.  After the set up, the bride and groom said good bye for the night.  A few of us gals spent the night at the Bride's parents house.  Saturday morning came way to quick! Hair and make up started bright and early.  

I absolutely love how my hair and make up came out!   

We left to head to the church around 1:45pm.  I didn't really have my phone on me at the church so I have no pictures of the happy couple!

We went for pictures immediately following the church. The first picture location was a farm with a huge red barn.  I can not wait to see how all of the pictures came out, I know they are going to be stunning.  It was freezing while taking the pictures! But we didn't let it stop the fun.  Before making our way to the reception hall we stopped at a little lake for the bide and groom to take a few shots together with the beautiful foliage on the water.

I am super excited because we leave for Bermuda on FRIDAY!  How was your weekend!?


Long Weekend Recap

What a good weekend with the most perfect weather! 

Friday night we had a rehearsal dinner for the wedding we are in this coming weekend! Eekkk I can't believe it is this Saturday!! 

Saturday we were up early to drive to my dad's to pick up a part for Jack's car. When we got back he fixed his car and I cleaned up the house. Linley and her family from lifeasanoel was in town to pick up some pumpkins at a local farm, so her and her sweet family stopped by our house and then we went to the Ice Cream Barn for some delicious homemade ice cream. Let me just tell you their sweet baby girl is even more precious in person, if that is even possible!!

Sunday my dad, stepmom, brother and his girlfriend Jess came to our house so Jack could work on my brother's car. He was home from college for the Columbus Day weekend and got an inspection sticker and it failed. Luckily after several hours on Sunday jack got it fixed. Sunday evening jack and I went shopping because he decided he wanted to wear a different shirt for our engagement pictures lol!

His "serious" face

Monday we had to go to my dads because my brother's car failed the inspection sticker AGAIN! For a different reason this time, but still. Long story short by the end of the day yesterday my brother finally had his inspection sticker!

We had our engagement pictures last night. So much fun! Our photographer is amazing. She's so friendly. By the end of the shoot we felt like we had known her for years! Jack and I could not stop talking about it ha. My dogs did not cooperate at all. I was really bummed but I think we did get a few shots with them. Huge thanks to our friend Tess for helping us out with our little demons! 

Most of the shots I wore this outfit! I just love it. and so didn't the photographer. She kept saying "are you sure you want to change I just love that dress!"

Ended the weekend with some doggie snuggles.

How was your weekend?
