We started the year off with a bang getting engaged in January! When I look back over 2o17 I think to myself what didn’t we do this year haha. Check out our full proposal story here.
If getting married in 2017 wasn’t enough excitement (or things to do) we also decided to build our first house together. It was so much fun (and stress) living through the building process but at the end it was well worth it. We have our dream house that we are excited to make memories in for years to come. See some of the building process here, and the finished (but un-decorated) house tour here.
Wedding planning went by quick, see my wedding dress shopping post here. I share which stores I enjoyed visiting, and also the best brands for curvy brides. I did not do a lot of planning posts since we did a destination wedding, but I have been asked by several of yall to do a reflection on choosing to do a destination wedding, and the pros/cons.
It is an understatement when I say yall went crazy over my curvy girls guide to swimwear post! I plan on doing a small version of this in the next month for yall going on some warm trips over the winter, but I will be doing another full try on this summer for all of my favorite swimwear so stay tuned!
We’re Married!! Seriously the most special and memorable day of my life. We got married on May 8th in Jamaica, everything was perfect you can see all of our wedding photos here. As requested I will be doing a destination wedding pros/cons post sometime this spring.
I however did do a review of our resort which we stayed at in Jamaica, so if you are planning a vacation be sure to check it out.
Another popular post for the year was my wide calf boot guide, some of these boots are still in stock!
I was honored to help White House Black Market announce their plus size line in November! It was been unreal to be able to work with brands that want to promote women of all sizes, we are all equally beautiful.
