Almost Wedding Time…

Eyo! #3days

….that’s right!! Next time I pop in over here at my little space on the interwebs, I will be The Artist Formerly Known as Sam Bock.

I have been a planning and DIY machine (complete with multiple breakdowns and all….I have to say, it will all be worth it, but SO EXCITED for this planning biz to be DONE).

Last weekend, Coop (can I still call him “Coop?” When I will now be a “Coop”?) and I took a ride with Kelso Brewery (they make a KILLER Imperial IPA that we love) on the Clipper City Tall Ship for a beer tasting.

Coop and Sam Beer Tasting Cruise

It was a perfect-for-us shower gift from my BFF Christine and her mama, and we have really been looking forward to it! It was SO much fun and the perfect way to celebrate the weekend before Wedding Weekend….which officially kicks off tonight after work!

^can almost see our place from here 🙂 Our beloved Jersey City

Winston the Dog

Gorgeous day, and even Winston the Mini Sheltie had a nice little cruise.

Still TONS to be done before Saturday, but it is falling into place, thanks to my family’s home turning into a DIY factory and all of their hard work. So many people coming together to pitch in, and I couldn’t be more thankful!! A wedding (even a pretty modest one) takes a village!!!

Let’s hope the mishmosh of visions in my head don’t turn into a visual hot mess on the Big Day…and if so? Gimme that bottle of champagne and my super-cute husband-to-be and a hot beat…and all is well. Cannot WAIT to celebrate with an insanely amazing group of 170 family and friends, with craft beer, food trucks, and a WHOLE lotta love.

See ya soon! Signing off for the last time as Sam Bock….
