a little bit of life with a side of oysters, please.

i personally do not think there is a better moment in life when you are with family, the man you're going to marry and lots of delish food. i had one of those moments last friday and loved it. our church hosted an oyster roast. i'm not even a hug fan of oysters but for some reason, the ones we had were ridiculously good.

probably helped that ryan was the opening up the muddy shells for me - even put on the hot sauce and handed me the shell to eat. i didn't have to deal with the mess. i think i got a good guy, wouldn't you say? don't just me. i had the camera so didn't want to get my hands dirty. *wink*


so my internet has not been my friend for the past two weeks, so forgive me if i end up being a little MIA. hopefully the internet drama doesn't last long. i'll just say that this particular company hasn't been the friendliest with their servie. i'm actually at a barnes and noble at the moment, trying to catch up on emails and pull up addresses for orders. i can live without internet but it defintely makes life a little difficult when you are running an etsy shop, you know what i'm saying?

welp, i'm off to go shopping with mom and sis.
hope you have a ridiculously awesome weekend whatever you're doing, lovely.

what are you doing this weekend?
do share. i'd love to know. even if i won't find out till later.
hopefully it'll be sooner than later.

much love.
[happy friday, friend.]
