Jazz it up

This couple hired one of my favorites to have pictures taken on their honeymoon! What a neat idea... (taking mental note.)

The look of the season

Even though I'm not engaged yet (key word being yet), I can't help but look and swoon over j.crew's fall 2010 wedding lookbook. Here are some of my favs...

P.s. I also think I love her curly, short hair. And the long hair. Basically I'm a sucker for beautiful hair...

Little Notes

Dear boy,
It's almost our anniversary! You might get a card...

Dear Sprite,
It's true, you're quenching my thirst. Thank you.

Dear Friday,
Can you please hurry? I'm ready to be in South Carolina.

Dear sweet tooth craving,
Go away. I don't need you right now.

Dear apartment,
Can you please clean yourself? That'd be great, thanks.

the boy

Meet the devilishly handsome man in my life. He's funny, he treats me like a queen and he loves me more than I ever thought possible.

We love more than ever, we fight more than I'd like to and we have the best time doing so.

He can spend an afternoon with my mom and be perfectly content. He watches me paint with a proud smile on his face. He'll eat chocolate with me all day long. He even tells me my cooking is good.

I've finally found a piece to fit in my life.

Mouth. Watering.

If you know me, you know my sweet tooth is very large. It's a problem. I might be adding this to my list of "problems" to bake. Yummm....

Always a dreamer...

I can't stop dreaming about outdoor dinner parties and having my own garden. Dinner parties with friends while serving food I've grown? How fabulous.

Craft Crafty

Since I'm sick at the moment, I don't have a lot of energy. Even though I like to pretend that I do. Since I'm pretending, I'm dreaming that one day soon I can be crafty. This awesome mason jar chandelier is on my "crafyt-to-do" list. I'm so excited.

Check out the step-by-step tutorial.

Summer Sun

In just a few short months, I will be laying on the beach with some life-long friends. I secretly wish bathing suits like this were still in fashion, though. But you can bet I'll be wearing an awesome hat on the beach!

Never a dull moment

Ellen cracks me up!! This made my day! :)

Such inspiration

I am a HUGE fan of Bethany Dillon. Her music, her words, her spirit. Such an amazing woman to look up to (even though I'm older). :)

A few years ago, Bethany married Shane from Shane & Shane. They are now blissfully pregnant with their first child, a girl – Lucy.

They are so so precious and I really look up to their Godly relationship. They are also the cutest pregnant couple I've seen in a long time.

Plus, I think we could be friends in real life. :)

Running? No thanks.

For years, I have had weight problems. Not ridiculously overweight, but I haven't been healthy either. Throughout these years, people tell me, "Go run!" If you know me, you know running is near the top of my "hate list". Against my lazy judgement, I have purchased the C25K app. Fingers crossed this will get me off my butt and doing some good exercise!

Belly laughing

Our long awaited concert was finally here!

Oh Dave Barnes, how you make my life better. I felt like a sardine in the sauna of a venue, but had such a good time with the boy. Constant laughter filled our day, especially at the people around us. Guys dancing like idiots to impress pretty girls, guys with bad b.o. and of course, people drinking too much. Definitely a night to remember!

We topped off our amazing night at our favorite little french spot. Cafe Intermezzo. A piece of moist chocolate cake followed by Casablanca tea, it doesn't get much better than that.

Hope your weekend was as fun as mine!

P.s. Check out some Dave Barnes funniness.
