Flat As Bru

I should have taken a better look at the surf report before renting a surfboard for this week. But two weeks at mom’s beach house has surfing written all over it. The house is even in the town of Surfside Beach. I was so excited to get out in the waves I didn’t hesistate for a second.

Even those of you who don’t surf can appreciate the zero star rating given to the not-so-aptly named Surfside Beach on this week’s surf report. Can 1/2 ft. waves even be called waves?

Just for kicks lets take a look at the report for Raglan, New Zealand. Really? 4 stars? Really? Overhead? Well, enjoy the surf Nelson.


I wouldn’t say that I’m a crazy bride-to-be, but I would say that I’m enthusiastic (read: potentially crazy) about the wedding. I’m now a member of The Wedding Bee website with my own bio and I actively see out pictures of eco, farm, rustic weddings as often as possible. Go ahead and send me a link of any you come across.

I feel a little bad though, thinking about wedding stuff and sharing ideas with everyone except Nelson. We talk 2-3 times a week, but there is so much to talk about besides wedding stuff and honestly, I don’t want to overwhelm him. Did I mention that the first thing Nelson said after he proposed was “Don’t turn all crazy please”? But, really what did he expect? Proposing to a girl right before she leaves for three months. So much time to think about flowers and dresses and food and… well, you get the idea.

So anyway, while I have lots of ideas, I don’t have many set decisions yet for the big day. But, one thing I am pretty much sold on are the colors. I haven’t consulted with the man yet, and I know the decision is half his, but here is what I am thinking right now: saffron/goldenrod yellow, chocolate, and gray. Summery, earthy, love it.

Now that I’m thinking those colors I see them everywhere. Check out this vintage sheet my sister had in her fabric collection (and the rediculously cute babies tucked into it).

And how about these potential bridesmaids dresses from Anthropologie?

And how about this gray and brown colored addition to the decor?
