A day of thrifting and picking

So I finally had a day off from the hall this Wednesday so my friend Jackie, her husband, Kevin and I hit the road for .99 cent day at Goodwill and any other thrift or antique store we could find.

Michigan pride in Tennessee!

Awesome cape I can't wait to buying a cape when it is 95 degrees outside makes you look like a fool

Other than finding a bunch of awesome stuff, the highlight of my day was visiting the new Antique Archeology shop that just opened here in Nashville. For anyone who doesn't know, that is a shop run by the guys from American Pickers on the History Channel. All their items were way out of my price range but they were pretty sweet nonetheless and everything was marked with which season they found it on. These guys pretty much have my dream job so it was pretty sweet to check out the new shop. I unfortunately didn't take any photos there because it was crazy busy and honestly they probably wouldn't have let me. But check out this fun other little thrift shop we found. Some of the things we found have been added but other haven't so stay tuned!

A Unexpected Fairy Tale Wedding

So last weekend a couple of my best friends from college got married, so me and the boys loaded up in cars and planes to get ourselves to Philly. In what was suppose to be the happiest week of their lives and unimaginable family emergency happened just a few short days before the wedding. In leaving TN, we were now feeling as if we were going to the wedding as moral support than what were good at - aka keeping the party going.

But sadness aside, the wedding went off without a hitch. We also learned that our friend came from a historic family from the Philly area, so his wedding took place in his family's old mansion in Bryn Athan, name Cairnwood.

The ceremony took place in the church that his ancestors built and the amazing reception took place in the mansion along the same scenic and gorgeous property.

beautiful church

all my boys!

Isn't he so cute all dressed up?

After the ceremony, I pretty much stashed my camera and did what I was instructed, which was to fully enjoy the open bar and help keep everyone's spirits up. So I listened and there aren't any photos from the reception but check out the beautiful church and all my handsome dates! Oh and the butterflies too...coolest wedding idea ever and mine didn't leave my hand for 10 minutes!
