Accessorizing with Rock My Vintage!

A few months back I was contacted by a fun vintage shop based in the U.K. called Rock My Vintage. Rock My Vintage asked if I would be interested in working together with them on a blog post. I’ve been so excited to share this shop with you all because: They have really unique and fun…

Holiday Shower Baskets…Wedding Wednesday!

This was supposed to be posted last week, but I made a mistake!  So here it is today… My shower was such a fun day!! I felt so lucky to have so many people come out to celebrate our wedding.  Dan was there to eat the yummy lunch and help me unwrap all the generous…

Bridesmaid Dress Shopping!

On this Wedding Wednesday, I am feeling compelled to write a little about bridesmaid dress shopping, as I am currently trying to find the perfect dress for my friend Christian’s wedding!  I am so honored that she has asked me to be in her wedding party and it has been fun to be on the…

Will YOU be MY Bridesmaid?!

One thing I couldn’t wait to do when wedding planning was ask my friends and family to be in my wedding.  I had seen so many fun ideas and decided to a few different types of cards from Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/205144077/funny-will-you-be-my-maid-of-honor-card?ref=shop_home_feat_4 It was so hard to choose because I thought they were all so funny and unique….

Wedding Wednesday…SURPRISE packages for the Bride-to-be!

Another thing that my bridesmaids did for me for the year before my wedding day was surprise boxes.  My sister-in-law Laura organized this fun project.  It made the stressful days so much better and I truly appreciated the thought that went into each box.  Most of the boxes had themes which made them each different…

The best thing I did while wedding planning…

Planning a wedding is a huge task. One of the most important things to remember as a bride is that it will all come together…some way or another. One piece of advice that one of my coworkers–Jonathan gave me while planning, was that even if something doesn’t go as planned–I will be the only one…

Choosing a Bridal Party…Wedding Wednesday!!

I think it is funny when people say every girl dreams about their wedding day because the truth is some don’t.  I, however, was one of the ones that did.  I still remember when my mom dressed me up as a bride for Halloween one year, and I thought it was the best year ever….

Bring it 2016!

Today will mark my first day back at work in the New Year!  It is crazy to me how long weekends sometimes seem shorter than a regular weekend.  All in all though, I have to say this year started off on the very best possible note. Dan and I had so much fun celebrating New…

Feel Good Friday…A New Year That is FULL of HAPPINESS!

It is so crazy to me that 2015 is a thing of the past.  It was such a great year in my life, one in which I gained a really amazing husband and became a first time auntie to two of the cutest and most lovable little nieces.  As much as I loved wedding planning…

Cutting Cost…Wedding Style

As I have expressed in other posts, planning a wedding is very expensive and at times shocking!  When we were planning our wedding, I felt like every place that I called to price out doubled in price as soon as I said the words “for my wedding.”  It was so insane, but people know that…

Tine’s Famous & Delicious Salad

One of my favorite things to eat is salad, but I don’t like boring salads.  My friend Justine, makes this salad, which is one of my favorites…I’m always excited when she says she is bringing it!  I’ve made it myself before and it is simple and most people love it! Here is the recipe: 2…
