Giving Back

Sorry I was MIA last week! After the McDougald/Penrod wedding, I treated myself to a manicure/pedicure thanks to Mrs. Belinda (Mother of the Bride) on Monday and relaxed a little bit! Then it was back to the "dirty work" of cleaning up after we did a wedding for 400+!

Yes, being a "wedding planner" also includes washing vases, cleaning flower buckets, windex-ing lots of things, taking inventory, etc. Therefore I don't think I opened my computer but once. But Thursday, I was able to "give back" to an organization that has gotten me so far. Kappa Kappa Gamma. It is my sorority from college and holds a special place in my heart.

Especially when it comes to events. I really believe that being in charge of "Homecoming" and other activities my Junior and Senior year is what finalized my decision to enter the event industry. I was so honored when the girls asked if I would assist on Pref night decor for Rush. I didn't think twice. Plus I loved seeing them all. I'd be lying if I said it didn't make me miss college or rush, or feel old! ha

Here is a sneak peak of the design.
Since I was in Fayetteville, I was able to see a few of my friends too!!! Natalie and I took the road trip up, hung out with friends Thursday night on Dickson St. We stayed with the newlyweds in their new home (which was super cute!!), got to see Ashley's new apartment, and go antique shopping on Friday. We also stopped by the new Riffraff store on the square. I was so happy to finally see it! Sorry, no party pics, I left my camera at home. But I am super excited about the next few weekends and promise many pictures coming your way!
