Believe Memphis

Hello out there. Long time no see. I have been busy busy busy the past few weeks and it has been a lot of fun! Ill be catching you up on some of those things soon but for now I thought I would share with you a bit of excitement that has come about in the future Holcomb's world. Three words... The Memphis Grizzlies.

Z and I love our grizz. We have been big fans for years but this year it was taken to a new level. Two of our great friends, The Zumwalts, are season ticket holders and when they would go out of town they would be so amazing and would let us sit in their seats. Many many other times Z and I would buy tickets off of stub hub and went to many games that way as well. When I started thinking about what I was going to give to my love on our wedding day I thought of many things but the best thought was grizz tickets.

When you think about buying grizz tickets you can buy individual tickets, game packages, or season tickets. I wasn't sure which I was going to do. I knew I would either buy a game package or season tickets. That decision was made for me when Z and I found ourselves without tickets to round 1 game 6 against the LA Clippers. The cheapest tickets I could find were a whopping $200 for waayyyyyyyyy up there. SO my sweet Zachary in a joking way said if we wanted to go ahead and buy season tickets we would have playoff priority. I did not know this. Z did NOT know of my wedding gift plan. I called the season ticket office and this was true. I put 20% down and BOOM Z and I had 2 tickets to the next 5 games for the playoffs and money down for next year. Now that may not make a ton of sense so I will break it down for you. Instead of paying $200 on ONE game I paid way less than that for 5 playoff games and the 20% toward our season ticket package. GREAT GREAT GREAT deal!! Season tickets are TOTALLY doable on even a small budget. If you have more questions feel free to ask me, visit the website here or call and find out.

SOOO.... The HOLCOMBS will have one GRIZZ of a first year of marriage. And yall... Game 6 against the Clippers was 1000% worth all of this... the two home games for OKC made me lose my mind. So so so fun!!! The loss yesterday not so fun but we will rise! BELIEVE MEMPHIS!

Here are a few moments over the past few games.

Round 1 Game 6 LA Clippers

This game was also our two months till the wedding celebration. 

Round 2 Game 3 OKC

 Round 2 Game 4 OKC

If you cant tell Zachary is very very please with his wedding gift and so am I. :) 

My dearest Zachary, I love you more than words can say. I cannot wait to be your bride. 40 more days and  you will be stuck with me forever. I love you always. 
sincerely, your allyse

wedding invitations

Who knew invitations for a wedding took this long?... I did duhh not me. Addressing invitations, finding addresses, putting together invitations in a cute way, there is a lot. So thankful for all of the INCREDIBLE people in my life who are and have been helping me. Every little bit helps a girl out. 

Some of the ways our friends have shown us love:: Helping us find a local print shop, knowing where to order paper and envelops, addressing invitations, assembling invitations and rsvp cards, tying twine, and many many others

Here is one bit of advice I was given from a few brides and I am giving you now, when someone offers to help you with something, let them. I have always felt like I was a burden on others when I asked for help but people do love you and want to help. Thank you again to all of those people to Z and me. 

I cant wait for all of you to see the finished project. They make me so so so happy!
