Friday Favorites

Happy Friday everyone!! Tomorrow is Chris's 30th birthday! I have a whole day planned for him and while he is aware that I have plans, he doesn't know what. All I told him was "I'll tell you when to get ready and be in the car". I'm  pretty excited and I hope he has fun! If you are curious as to what I have planned then check out my Instagram tomorrow, I'll be sharing our whole day. : )

What about you? Any fun plans for the weekend?

Okay on to my internet favorite finds of the week:

I absolutely love the exposed beams in this room but the rest of the decor is a little too rustic for me. I'd have more neutral colors with colorful pillows and curtains!

This look is so fun for fall! I love the idea of dressing up a comfy sweater with heels. But I would go for jeans that aren't torn!

I love this bakers cart as a drink station. It such a fun twist on the bar car idea. The styling with the blues and greens is also stunning!

This quote is so inspirational! It reminds me to take chances because your dreams may come true if you try. Love it.

I want a card catalog! I mean seriously, who doesn't?! I just have no idea what I would put in it. : )

 Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday all! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? We don't have too much going on.

Okay here are my favorite internet finds for this week:

I love this guest room! The beachy decor really makes it feel very relaxing. I'd love to be a guest in this room. : )

This quote really reminds me to take a moment and enjoy life. It reminds me that I have to balance my life with living and work. Such a great quote!

This color palette is simple and beautiful. It would be a great palette for a fall or winter wedding!
 {via}

Ah command stations, I love you! The golds accessories and green dresser really help make this station unique and gorgeous!

With the change of season coming, I'm constantly searching for outfit inspiration. I think this look would be perfect for fall! Fun and sophisticated. : )

My DIY Wedding: Design & Style {Part 1}

Hi all! Today I am back with "My DIY Wedding" series. Last week I shared the Venue & Layout so this week I'm going to talk about the Design & Style. As I was writing this post I realized I had a lot to share, so I split it into two parts. Here is part one:

First lets start with the colors: 

We are using soft sage green and champagne with creams and golds thrown in there too. I want it to mostly be the champagne, creams, and golds with pops of the green.






The flowers:

I've decided to do something a little different with the flowers. Instead of buying them, I'm going to make them! They can be really expensive and I have bad allergies so making them just made sense.

I want to try to make peonies and garden roses.

For the colors I going to stick with creams, whites, and greens. I really don't want any blush or pink around. Also I'm going to add my own fake leaves. This will be one aspect of the DIY wedding that I will definitely share a lot more detail about after the wedding!





Lounge area:

On the deck we plan on having a lounge space. My mom and I are looking at flea markets and thrift stores to find a couch, love seat, chairs, and tables.

Near the lounge area I also plan on having two high cocktail tables as an alternative place to hang out.

Scattered around this lounge area on the deck will be lots of lanterns, gold and champagne painted mason jars, and candles. My vision is a romantic and cozy area.

Also we are going to cover the deck somehow, with either a tent or awing. We are doing this for two reasons. The obvious is rain, but if it doesn't rain, we also want to protect our guests from the sun.



Ok, I think that is enough for now. I'm really getting excited about this wedding! Next week I'll be sharing part 2, so be sure to come back. : )

Monthly Recap. {August 2014}


Hi all, I can't believe it is September already! Fall is almost here and I couldn't be happier. Summer is really my least favorite season. I just can't handle the heat and humidity. So I can't wait to welcome the cooler days!

Since it's a new month it's recap time! If you are a new follower or have missed a post or two here is a recap of what I was up to in August:
