    I love a good ‘ole classic Southern wedding, don’t you?  And there is so much fun energy in these photos, I just had to share them with you.  Everyone should be this happy on their wedding day!

    Our venue, Patten Chapel at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga, was the perfect place for us to get married. It was very important for us to be married in a church and Patten Chapel was just the most beautiful, intimate venue.

    Almost everything was DIY by us and our family.  We designed our own invites, and my mom hand-drew them (she also drew our guestbook thumbprint tree!)  My mom, grandmother, and two aunts did all of my florals with me.  And my grandmother made all of the bow ties by hand: my groom’s was made from pieces of my dress.  We are just SO blessed to have so much personal involvement by our family.

    I loved every single detail about our wedding. I put a lot of thought in how I wanted our wedding to look and how I wanted to represent myself and Joel.  I love classic, vintage things and I am a very sentimental person, so I loved having my family involved in every detail; that just made everything so much more special.

    Doesn’t this just seem like the happiest day?  I love how much the family helped create this wedding day for Briana and Joel and how much was DIY without seeming like it was DIY: DIY done right and done well!  Aren’t those bow ties fabulous!?  What is your favorite detail?

    •  Quincy and I went to the #redCARpetsafety event today, which raises awareness for baby safety. Saw friends @uppababy @munchkin @ergobaby @babyganics & made some new ones like @thestep2company @showmeyourmumu as well. Quincy was making eyes at all the ladies, but he flirted the biggest with Caila with the good hair (which should totally be her hashtag). And all the new moms and moms-to-be were asking about this sling @mywildbird! Which made me think of a good #momtip: Taking Quincy on the go is so much easier thanks to babywearing and that @loyal_hana jumpsuit -- the hidden zippers make it so easy to nurse Quincy while wearing him in the sling. No one even knows I'm breastfeeding! Makes it so much easier to go places, especially with other little ones. I did a whole post on ohlovelyday.com about breastfeeding while babywearing if you want more tips! #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys #babywearing #normalizebreastfeeding  If I got to take two naps a day I'd be this happy too.  And for all of you who have asked me about this playmat, I blogged all about it today -- link in profile. #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys
       Watching these three interact with each other over breakfast makes me flash forward to seeing them doing the same thing as big boys and teenagers and it makes me smile and shed a little tear at the same time. And then I think about how much cereal and milk I'm gonna have to buy  #thefredrickboys  It's been one of those days (weeks, months, years) where everything is going wrong. Been up since 4:45 since I couldn't get Quincy back to sleep after a feeding. Calvin fell asleep in the stroller on a walk at 10:30 (something he hasn't done since he was like 5 months old!) so his normal nap (my break to eat/shower/work/rest or only have one child to care for for a couple hours) is gone for the day. Quincy pooped all over himself so bad that we were both literally covered in . And he's already woken up from his afternoon nap after only 45 very short minutes. And I'm supposed to have a date with my husband tonight except I'm exhausted and covered in  and have no time to do anything about either one. Oh, and I fell down the stairs (sore but not hurt). Motherhood: somedays you win, somedays you lose. But on all the days you are, to some extent in this season of motherhood, covered in shit.  Here's hoping the weekend is less shitty, in all the ways. #beerme #battlefieldmotherhood
