Save the Date Treat

I have seen so many save the dates it's not even funny. Postcards, magnets, photos, calendars, key chains, candles, you name it. You can bet how excited I was when I saw these cookies because it was a first for me!! The S.T.D cookies are such a fun and yummy way to tell your guests about your upcoming nuptials. Let's just hope they write it down before they eat it : )

Blog Heaven

If you are a follower of my blog then you either #1 know me #2 are getting married or #3 are a blog addict like me. I am so addicted to blogs I'm pretty sure Kinsey is about to send me to rehab. The amount of inspiration that is out there is insane and so motivating.

Here are a few of my favorites....
***please be aware that I can not be held responsible for any addictions that may occur.

Weddings: No big surprise that wedding blogs are where I spend most of my time. There are so many incredible inspirational blogs out there. I decided to only list one because if I were to list all of my favorites you might think I'm crazy and not want to follow me anymore. So my one and only for this category is the mother of all wedding blogs Style Me Pretty.

Interior Design: I love my house so much and wish I had buckets of money to do everything I want to do but until then I love finding DIY projects on these 2 amazing blogs.

This blog is done by a husband and wife who take on projects around their house. Showing before and after photos, how to instructions, and where to buy information. I am always inspired to take on a project after visiting this site. AND I kinda want to be friends with them in real life haha

The next blog is a newbie! I just found it last week. Cape 27 is very similiar to YHL and whats great is they are from Cincinnati! Gotta support Ohio love.

I have 4 more months until my little peanut is born which gives me plenty of time to continue to obsess over some of these baby blogs. My favorite for nursery inspiration is Chic & Cheap Nursery. If I were ever to change professions this would be a fun one!

Speaking of these sites it's time for me to go get my fill for the day. Enjoy!!

Shoes Day Tuesday

The royal wedding is over and so are our r.w. post so enjoy the last with this edition of Shoes Day Tuesday. I have to say I am very disappointed that a photo of Kate's shoes have not been released. We do however know that they were a custom pair of Alexander McQueen laced satin pumps. 
If you want your piece of a real Cinderella heel, you in luck, knock offs have been released including these $995 McQueens.
Weeks prior to the wedding there was huge speculation that Kate's shoes would be made by Aruna Seth.
Although the honor went to McQueen, the spotlight has still made Aruna Seth designs a hot commodity. The butterfly heel is the most popular but I prefer these sparklers.

Our Royal Wedding Party

Most people think I am crazy for getting up at 3:15 a.m to watch a wedding of two people I don't even know but let me tell you it was soooooo worth it and I had all my wedding industry twitter friends who are as crazy as me! Since I wasn't alive for Princess Diana's famous wedding this is my first big royal wedding and it did not disappoint.

The evening started with a sleepover at my aunts and just a few hours later the royal themed party began!

The food was delightful (do I sound British?) we had 
egg salad sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, parfait, 
cupcakes, scones, and mimosas.

The happy couple!

 The amount of butterflies I had at this moment was insane!
She truly looked like a Princess

Another favorite of the day is when he first saw her he said "you look beautiful"

The least favorite I have to say was the kiss. It was just a little blah,
although I felt a little better since there was two kisses but still...
maybe 3rd time would have been the charm

Okay seriously could the two of them be any more gorgeous?!

We were all watching people arrive in their fancy hats while wearing our own.
I wish we would wear more hats in the states, they are fabulous.
This one made me laugh out loud, when she turned sideways she looked like she had a blue rhino horn.

Harry needs to get on the ball. I'm already anxiously awaiting another R.W.

Happy May!!

I am so happy that May is finally here. We all know the saying April showers brings May flowers and since we have had a ridiculous amount of rain we should have an abundant amount of flowers. My favorite May flowers are lilacs. They are a Mother's Day tradition for my family and mean a lot to me, I planted a lilac bush last year and am thrilled to have my first bloom on my very first Mothers day (Kinsey said I get to celebrate even though my bun is still in the oven and I'm not going to argue). I feel like my first bloom is a little gift from my mawmaw.
May is also big in this household because it's also birthday-palooza. Everyone in this house has a birthday; starting with Kinsey turning the big 30 now I know that 30 isn't that old but I like to tease and say that he's going to be a grandpa before actually being a dad, then 2 days later my fur baby Mr. Brody is turning 5, and ending the month with my 27th. If that wasn't enough I have 3 family birthdays in May as well. There will be a lot of cake eating for this mama for sure!

I continued to be reminded of the blessings God has given me and I am looking forward to May : )
