My dad and Ryan were quite the scuba duo today.
Ryan recently purchased new scuba equipment and a spear gun for spear fishing and wanted to try it our in our pool to make sure everything checked out.
The two of them created an underwater target using a phone book and a large piece of plywood. They were quite scrappy!
Ryan got a bullseye on his first attempt!
After all the scuba craziness, Ryan and I cleaned up to head out to St. Pete Beach to meet with a potential wedding DJ.
I love the drive out to the beach. It’s like entering a whole new world filled with salty breezes, care-free attitudes and the sound of crashing waves.
We met with the DJ, Jeff, on an outside porch and enjoyed our time with him immensely. We feel confident that we found our guy! He seemed really fun, jovial, charismatic and definitely seemed like someone who knows how to have a good time.
Tomorrow we have a meeting with a pastor and if we can hammer down our wedding officiate this weekend, all of our vendors will be booked! Phew.
When we arrived back at my parents’ house, my mom had Part II of my birthday seafood feast waiting.
Seafood is my favorite. I wish it wasn’t so expensive because I would eat it a lot more often!
Between my family, me and Ryan, we did some major damage to the shellfish and crab legs.
Sadie wanted in, and managed to snag a few clams to enjoy.
After dinner we had to homemade desserts: cherry pie with crumb topping and strawberry frozen yogurt pie.
My mom and I made the cherry pie together, but we were laughing at the crumb topping because, though tasty, it looked like ground beef!
Dad’s Birthday Gift
During dessert, my dad gave me the birthday gift he (with the crafty help of my mom) made for me.
If you have ever seen Father of the Bride, I think you’ll understand this gift!
My family is obsessed with that movie and he thought the wedding sneakers would be a perfect fit for me.
I’m not 100 percent sure I’ll wear these down the aisle, but it’s definitely a possibility!! Comfy, cute and sentimental… good mix!
What did your wedding shoes look like? If you’re not married, what do you want your wedding kicks to look like?
