Wedding Planning!

I had so much fun forgetting about school and wedding planning with my mom this weekend! We went to a couple of places getting some ideas, sorted out a budget, and shared all of our wedding ideas.  Such good times...

Just wanted to post a super cute wedding from Southern Living Wedding magazine - I love the bright pink, light pink and orange dresses and the pomanders hanging overhead!

 Love the drinks in the cute cups with orange rims.

 Amazing tent!
 Great umbrellas during cocktail hour.

Time to get ready to start trauma surgery tomorrow morning! So happy to have had a weekend to relax prior to tomorrow!

Wonderful Day

This morning I was laying in bed listening to the Sandhill Cranes flying over our house, heading back to Wisconsin.  They make this loud beautiful noise as they fly in flocks across the sky.  I opened the sliding glass door of my bedroom, so I could hear them better.  Kent and I used to joke that we were like the Sandhill cranes, always flying back and forth from Florida to Wisconsin!

Last night, our friends threw a joint engagement party for five couples, including Kent and myself.  It was so much fun to catch up with friends and talk weddings with four other brides! Some pictures from the party are below.

This afternoon, instead of studying for my shelf on Friday, Kent and I decided to go golfing with John and Megan.  We managed to make it through 11 holes without making too much of a spectacle of ourselves!!! Good thing our fiances are so good at golf!

So for some wedding stuff...This is my favorite!  The tent is fabulous! You can see the more of the wedding at

Ok bed time now! Back to the hospital tomorrow.

My First Post

I should really be studying for my Internal Medicine shelf, but instead I thought it would be fun to create a blog!  My cousin has an amazing blog that she used during her wedding planning and continues to blog now as a newlywed.  After referring my mom and sister to Kelli's blog multiple times, I figured I should start my own blog to have a way to share my wedding ideas with my mom, sister and friends. So here goes the beginning of my blog and most likely the decline in my medical school GPA!

Prior to even being engaged I started thinking up color combinations.  Originally it was teal and green or pink for a beach wedding in Florida, but when Kent and I decided to say our vows on Washington Island in Wisconsin, teal didn't seem right.  I started looking at green weddings and fell in love with navy blue and green.  Here are some inspiration boards I made.  The photos are ones I found from various posted weddings and websites as ideas for my own wedding!

That is all for tonight - have to be at the hospital early for rounds!
