C+D WEDDING

Hi lovelies! Today I wanted to share a special thing with y'all- our wedding pictures! D and I got married back in November before I started this blog, but as I'm sure y'all can understand, I just LOVE scrolling through our pictures over and over again! I'm very lucky to have an extremely talented aunt who is a photographer! She owns Ever After Photography and did all the photography for our wedding. She's the best :) I hope y'all enjoy this fun little glimpse into the happiest day of our lives! 













































They they are living happily ever after! Muah!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

I'm definitely late to the game posting a round up of my favorite sale items from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I debated about whether or not I should because every one already has, but oh well, this is my corner of the internet and if nothing else, it will act as inspiration for myself!

I have to be honest, I'm in Texas and in Texas, you have a REALLY hard time buying fall clothes in July because you know that even cool weather is still about 4 months away. I mean why spend my July money on clothes I can't wear until October at the earliest? But truthfully, the sale prices really do make it worth it. I always look back in the fall at items that were discounted in July and kick myself for not grabbing them during the Anniversary Sale. Also, not only are the sales on clothes awesome but my favorites to buy right now are probably shoes and beauty products! I'm going on and on when really you could look for yourself and understand why this sale is so great, but it is the perfect place to stock up on your basics and invest in more splurge worthy pieces while they have a lower price tag! 

Alright, beauties, I'm off to spend some money! All talkie, no shopie makes me a girl with nothing to wear ;) Hope y'all score some fabulous goodies! Happy Friday!

ALL ME

Today I thought it would be fun to answer an all about me questionnaire to let y'all into a little bit more of my life!

1. Are you named after anyone? The story behind my name according to Marme is that one of her childhood nicknames was Cassie {her name is Cathy}, and she loved that name so she took that and combined it with "Dee" which is my aunt Janet's middle name so she got Cassi-dy. ANDDD my aunt Carol's middle name is Rae so you have Cassidy Rae :) Fun fact: When I was younger I hated my middle name {sorry, Marme} because I thought people would think it was a man's name so I was always embarrassed to tell people- super silly, I know, but as I got a little older I got over that ridiculous mess and now I absolutely love my middle name. Reminds me of rays of sunshine, and it's even more special that I am named after three of  the best women I know- Marme, Aunt Janet, and Aunt Carol! 

Aunt Janet

Aunt Carol

2. When was the last time you cried? Oh gosh... I come from a family of OVERLY emotional people, and yes, I am one of them. I cry at the drop of the hat. I tear up if someone is telling me about how great their day was, I tear up when I see a sweet commercial on tv, and I am embarrassed to admit that two days ago I started crying for absolutely no reason and I could not stop nor figure out what was wrong with me. Needless to say D was scared-very scared. HAHA! Sorry, sweetheart :) 
3. Do you have kids? Not yet, but one day :) 
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Yes! 
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? I believe I could have majored in sarcasm in college so yes. I love it. It is a beautiful form of communication! 
6. Will you ever bungee-jump? YES! Bungee jumping has been on my bucket list for a long time now! I have not yet done it, BUT when D and I were at the beach, we did this bungee jumping ride where we sat in this metal ball and got shot WAYYYY up into the air and bungeed up and down and up and down and so on... it was AWESOME. We cannot wait to do the real thing! 
7. What’s your favorite cereal? Oh goodness, cereal is one of my favorite foods! I could snack on it all day, and I don't think I can pick just one, girl! I love cinnamon toast crunch, french toast crunch, captain crunch (is there a theme developing here?), lucky charms, etc. Gimme cereal all day, and this girl is a happy camper! 
8. What’s the first thing you notice about people? I notice smiles! You're never fully dressed without a smile ;) 
9. What is your eye colour? blue
10. Scary movie or happy endings? Hmm... If I have D to protect me, scary movie! We love watching scary movies at night, but if I am alone, gotta have a happy ending. I'm a chick flick girl for sure! 
11. Favorite smells? Mountain Laurel in the spring! Smells like grape bubblegum. I know spring has started when I start smelling Mountain Laurel! 
12. Summer or winter? Winter. Boot season and sweater weather, anyone?! Can I get an AMEN?!
13. Computer or television? Computer. I can watch all my shows on the computer, but I can't do computer things on the TV. I commandeered my hubby's Mac when we got married because I had a sad old PC that couldn't even stay alive without being plugged in and literally took at least 30 minutes to turn on and set up. 
14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? When I went to London and Paris with my Marme after I graduated HS! But technically I was with Marme so I still felt like I was home! She's literally the best. 
Lattes in London with Marme! That was a lot of hair ago. 

15. Do you have any special talents? Not really?? HA! I have good handwriting and love doing calligraphy. Not sure I could say it is a talent though! 
16. Where were you born? San Antonio, Texas
17. What are your hobbies? Shopping, blogging, hanging out with my family and friends, decorating, day dreaming, arts and crafts, playing dress up and with makeup 
18. Do you have any pets? Nope
19. Favorite movie? No way, I don't think I could ever pick a favorite! There are too many amazing ones! Some of my favoriteS are Baby Mama, The Proposal, and Bridesmaids. 

20. Do you have any siblings? An older sister and three younger brothers

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? Still working on that dream! One piece of it is the best wifey and future mommy that I can possibly be! 
I hope y'all enjoyed this! I'd love to get to know some of y'all better. Leave me a comment!
