It's My Blog and I'll Do What I Want To

...and what I want to do is post a weekend recap on Tuesday.

See, I had my Monday post planned out, but I just never made it over here to Cats, Cuddling, & Carrot Cake yesterday. Or Friday, but I actually have an excuse for that one. My boyfriend was sworn in Friday morning and is officially a police officer!

He's been in police academy for the last six months, but now he's a REAL cop with a gun and everything. I pretty much just spend all day peeing my pants and biting my nails, obviously. But I am extremely proud and excited for him, not to mention how good he looks in that uniform ;) His parents took lots of pictures, but I took none. Sorry :/

He looks good in civilian clothes, too

After the ceremony I had one teeny responsibility, and then we went to The Wine Loft to celebrate. I've mentioned this place before, and as usual it did not disappoint. If you live in Charlotte and haven't been yet, then why?! I had the italian moscato this time and omgsogood. Seriously the best wine I have ever had. Sam and I also shared a steak sandwich meal that was delicious, and it's not often that we like the same foods. I'm also dying to go back and try their pumpkin ravioli.

Saturday I spent all day hunting for a perfect pair of brown boots. Spoiler alert: I didn't find them. I want a cute, simple, kind of slouchy pair of brown (not cognac) boots that won't break the bank. I found a pair that I loved, but they didn't fit. For some dumb reason they came in SML sizes instead of numbers, and that just wasn't working for my seven and a halfs.

Isn't it beautiful?

And on Sunday, I fell in love. But not with boots. Let's back track to Jeff & Paige's wedding. All night I just kept thinking about how great their photographers were. They were so friendly and easy to work with, they remembered my name all night and I wasn't even in the wedding, and most importantly they were snapping lots and lots of pictures. My favorite thing about them, though, was that they were dancing and chatting- it felt like they were guests at the wedding, not people at work. Their presence was just phenomenal. I thought to myself at the wedding "if their photos are as good as their presence then they must be the best photographers on the planet." Well, Jeff & Paige got their pictures back this weekend and guess what? They're even better. I spent way too long on their website Sunday, and they do some of the best work I have ever seen. Don't believe me? Look for yourself. And, if you live near Charlotte and need a photographer, I would absolutely reccomend Love Shutter.
