My last recap from Georgia! - My cousin's wedding

Posted July 23, 2014 in wedding, bridesmaid, travel and 6 more

This has taken me forever to get up since I've been moving and I haven't had internet at my new place. But I wanted to share one more post about my Georgia trip!

If you remember, I went to Georgia to attend FitBloggin (see my recaps here and here) and to attend my cousin Kristi's wedding! I was lucky enough to be a bridesmaid! She and Avery are such a beautiful couple. It was fun to celebrate with them!

*Just a little side about Kristi and Avery: They are hardcore CrossFitters, and are very healthy, which is why it was super easy to workout and eat healthy when I stayed with them during the first part of the Atlanta leg of my trip (see my Georgia food adventures here). A lot of their CrossFit friends also attended the wedding. I didn't mention that I'm a CrossFit quitter ; )

I don't think most people are close with their cousins, but Kristi and I have always been close. I'm just a year older than her, so growing up we always played together. We both attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln at the same time, so we got into lots of college mischief together. After college, we even took a fun girls trip to New York City. And now, even though we live miles and miles away from one another, we still stay in touch! We have a lot in common and we can gossip about our family! Lol. So I was so happy to be a part of her wedding. She is really a kind hearted and giving person. She's also a go-getter and a super fab interior designer in Atlanta! Such a beautiful person.

Here are some highlights from her and Avery's beautiful wedding...

This is the biggest news I've ever shared on Sweet Success...I'm engaged! I'm sharing all the details from the proposal and our weekend of celebrating.

I snuck this big announcement into my birthday post last week, but I wanted to share more because this is big big news!

If you've been following the Sweet Success blog from the beginning (six years!), then you've gotten to know the BF. Our seven year dating anniversary is in July, and he's always been a big part of the stories that I share here.

Engagement Party Details

Posted September 14, 2017 in Engagement Party, taco bar, margaritas and 4 more


The fiancé and I celebrated our engagement with a party! 

You can read about the proposal here.

Family and friends traveled from all over to help us celebrate, which made it super special. 

My parents hosted the party at their new house. Because they have a huge backyard, we planned to have a party tent, an outdoor bar and yard games. But it ended up raining all morning and the crazy Nebraska wind blew in. So we moved the party indoors. 

In the end, it didn't matter that it didn't go as planned. We had a great time with our friends and family.
