What I Gifted My Bridesmaids on My Wedding Day

What I Gifted My Bridesmaids on My Wedding Day

Being a bridesmaid is not cheap! Not only do they have to pay for their dresses (and sometimes hair and makeup), there are also travel expenses involved in most cases! Seven out of my eight bridesmaids were not local to Charleston, so they and their families had to travel and pay for lodging in order to attend! I mentioned before that I really wanted to spoil my gals, so I wanted to make their gifts very special!

3 Tips To Prevent Your Dog From Peeing In The House - Chasing Cinderella

If you've been following along the past couple of years, you know that we now have four dogs. Yes, FOUR! Scooter, our smallest one, will be 10 in October, Tarpon is 8, Mako is 2 and our newest, Tilly, is 6 months old. Yes that's a lot of dogs, and yes we have trouble keeping our house clean. Lately, especially with the new addition of Tilly, our most recent issue is old man Scooter peeing in the house, aka marking everything in sight. I think it's a mix between his old age, and all the smells of the labs that leads to him going indoors. Regardless, we have been trying everything to get this issue under control. There are three main tips I recommend trying at home if you are having the same issue, and I'm also going into detail on the one that has worked best for us!

Wow 2019, what a year! It may be cheesy to say, but really was the best one yet! So many things happened in my personal life, as well as professional! I've learned a lot about myself as a person, and what I truly believe in. I've had new friendships blossom, and had to close the door on a toxic one. I traveled to some new places, and made our house feel more like a home. I don't always get too personal on here, but thought it would be nice to share some 2019 highlights, and what I have planned for the year ahead!
