Wedding Bells

Well, the wedding is less than two months away (eeek)!  Most everything is taken care of
with the exception of a few small DIY projects.  I can't tell you how excited I am to marry
my best friend and the love of my life!  He is everything (and more) that any girl could ever
want in a friend, confidant and husband.  So, without further ado here are a few pictures
of some of the wedding items I've been working on and a sneak peek at a few things...

Wedding invitations (that went out this past weekend!) from
And here they are with the lovely (and non-traditional) stamps...

And take a look at this sweet koozie my wonderful friend Miranda got me!  I love it!

Below is the wedding insert I made - monogram was made on Wedding Chicks.

As far as the bridesmaids dresses go, I told my sweet girls they could pick whichever dress they
wanted in the J. Crew Silk Taffeta Collection in the color I requested - and they all ended
up picking the same dress!  Can you guess which one?  Which color do you think I went with?

I can't wait for this weekend - we have a wonderful group of friends that are throwing
us a wedding shower in the fiancĂ©'s hometown.  I am so excited to see everyone!
What are your weekend plans?

I have become fascinated with instagram.  And because of said fascination, I have
chosen to bore you with some of the pictures I have taken on instagram.  You're welcome.

Enjoying some starbucks iced coffee.  It's my weakness. Don't judge me.

My sweet baby Maddie.  I have an obscene amount of pictures of her.

This is Maddie's baby.  She carries it around the house just about wherever she goes.
Loofa dog has seen better days to say the least.

I made two pillow last Saturday out of store bought dish clothes.
The house is slowly becoming a home :)

Enjoying this little nook in my living room. Ampersand pillow tutorial can be found here :)

This is the view from my bedroom of the sunset a few nights ago.  Simply gorgeous!
I can tell Instagram and I will be close friends for some time.  Do you use Instagram?

Ready for fall

I feel as though we are on day 2,847 of summer.  It's hot.  humid.  miserable.
Needless to say I think we are all ready for fall.  Especially me since I live in 100+ degree
weather right now with full humidity - Oh, and did I mention my AC in my car went out?


Since I am longing for cooler temps I thought I would share a few looks I'm longing for :)
All courtesy of J. Crew...

Ok, I'm just going to sit here and drool for a little.  Don't mind me.

Thank goodness I have football season to pass the time.
