friday fun.

Thank you for all of the sweet words on my last post.  I can't even express in words how very much all of your kindness has meant to me and G.  A huge hug to all of you. 

And now, for a Happy Friday video.  I'm part of a group of girls, called the Wedding Whine Club (more details here).  We've been working really really really hard on this fun industry event and I just had to share the teaser video.  Enjoy.

wedding weekend.

Happy Friday.  We are off to another wedding this weekend...yay!  I've been to so many weddings, you'd think by now I'd have a well thought out plan of what to wear, but last night I got a bit panicked and tried on pretty much my entire closet.  I finally found something, and then couldn't figure out how I would do my hair.  I'm thinking of wearing it up (gasp!).  Nothing too crazy.  A fishtail braid or a messy ponytail both seem like a good fit for me.

holiday weekend.

Happy happy happy holiday weekend!  How are you spending yours?  Mine will be filled with wedding fun.  I will be helping with a wedding, then attending one as a guest the next day.  Eeeek, can hardly wait.  Hope you enjoy your three-day holiday.


my wedding dress.

Every year on our anniversary I wear my wedding dress out to dinner.  It is to be able to wear my dress over and over again.  I'm super happy that I decided to go with a short dress so that I can sport it out without a second glance from anyone.  I wish all of my girlfriends and I could host a garden party so they too could wear their wedding dresses out again one more time.  I swear, it totally takes you back to that moment where you marry your love...and what an amazing moment that was and will always be.  So, here are pics of our anniversary nights throughout the years (and please forgive the phone pics).



Today marks three years of marriage (and 13 years together...wowza)!  I seriously can't believe I ended up with this guy.  It's hard for me to write in words how very much he means to me.  The last three years have brought some rough times our way, but also some of the most incredibly amazing times of our lives.  He is beloved by all, especially my family who is constantly talking about how sweet and wonderful he is (uhhhhhh hello, I used to be the nice one in my family, but apparently that title now lies with my hubby).  G, love you, love your show!

Good morning Monday.  Wow, what a weekend it was.  I seriously can't thank the girls of Enjoy Events enough for having me be a part of their workshop.  I had a blast turning this inspiration board into a table setting.  I loved meeting all of the participants and sharing a few budget friendly diy projects that I made.  So, here are some iPhone pics I snapped of the table.  I'll be back later this week to dive into a few of the diy goodies too.

bridesmaid time.

Taking off a little early this week, as I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding for a dear friend that my hubby and I went to college with.  She and her fiancé met while they were both on vacation in Bali.  How fricking romantic is that?  We can't wait to celebrate with them!  And I'll keep you updated on my hair (remember when I posted this?  I'm definitely leaning towards something with braids).



It's the weekend...woo hoo!  So happy cause my husband has been out of town this past week for work and I finally scooped him up from the airport last night.  And for those of you that follow me on twitter, yes I did go to the correct airport.  ha!  A few months ago, I happily went to pick up G from the SFO airport, problem was, he had flown into the Oakland airport.  Opps, don't think I'm ever going to live that one down.  Oh well, I guess we all have our moments.  Enjoy your weekend! xoxo!

Are you an early riser?  My husband and I wake up at 6am on weekdays and I've grown to love it.  I cherish those early morning hours when I begin to hear the outside world slowly start to awake.  It's so very peaceful.  When I saw this wedding on Green Wedding Shoes, it stole my heart.  A sunrise ceremony beginning at 6am?  Pure magic!

And that feather bolero is seriously calling my name!
