Wedding #13: Can I get some Chevron in that?

It had to happen. 
Especially since I finally finished my new blog style
which is obviously rocking the chevron print!
So I had to obviously do a wedding board with a dash of chevron...
Because honestly I can't get enough.
Anyway, I have been totally MIA on my blog lately!
But since my boyfriend will be gone till Thursday, I am taking advantage of this time.
& this will be Daily Wedding Inspiration Blogging Madness Week

Wedding #13: A Touch of Chevron

P.S. I am super excited to finally use these chevron cookies in one of my posts!
My friend Terra sent me an e-mail about them a few months ago...
& I have been dying to use it for something!
So yeah...
By the way, check out her amazing blog, Golightly!
She is one of the coolest people I've ever meant.
Cool but also really weird & quirky, so I basically love her & miss her lots!
We have a pretty cool video of us playing w/stuffed animals in Blockbuster.

Wow... that only took me 2 hours.
Now I know why I haven't been blogging lately!
No time... but anyway, I really like this.
And am definitely going to be making some chevron cookies for my cousin's baby shower!
AND I want to get some of those pinwheels... they'd be cute little decorations!

Anyway, here's a fun pink party dress idea!

Blog Help & Sneak Peak

Changes to blog are slowly occurring...
Got a new signature... check.
Changed most of my post backgrounds to white.
Now I just have to redo the background, touch up the header...
& figure out how to make my signature change on every post???
Anyone know how to do this? 
Anyway, until then...
Here is a sneak peak of the photo shoot from yesterday!!

Wedding #12: Summer Never Ends

I spent today lounging at the pool in a hammock...
& it was honestly too hot to not be in the water.
In October... it baffles my mind! I love it.
The weather now in October is nicer than weather ever is during the summer in the NW.
Anyway, this brought on my inspiration for a destination=Savannah wedding inspiration board!
I chose turquoise & orange as the color combo!
Because what is more summery than those colors?

Wedding Inspiration #12: Summer Never Ends

I personally cannot get enough of orange & different shades of blue!
I just love the combo!! 
Anyway, it's a start of a new week & I could not be more excited...
because my boyfriend comes back this week!!!!! 
Ahhhh... I'm so anxious.
I don't know exactly what day he'll be back, but the sooner the better!

Cutest flower girls...

While working on an inspiration board for Layla Mayville,
I ran across the most adorable Etsy shop I think I have ever seen.
And maybe the cutest little girls I have ever seen.
I'm not even lying.

Gosh, but really... is this not the cutest little girl you've ever seen in your entire life?
She is going to be one little heartbreaker, that's for sure!
But anyway, check out her shop!!!
Her stuff is amazingly adorable...
She has all sorts of accessories for flower girls & just for girls in general!
And her stuff is super affordable!
Now if only the little girl was included with purchase...

Wedding #11: Nautical Night

This theme may seem random, considering it's fall & rainy out...
So let me connect the dots...
Last weekend I missed one of my good friend from college's birthday parties...
Which made me miss my friends...
Which reminded me of one of my favorite nights my senior year...
On A Boat Party

So here it is, my Nautical Night inspiration board!

Wedding Inspiration #11: Nautical Night

On a side note...
{Major reconstruction} on my blog right now.
Ever since I've started my blog I've used GIMP
& made the backgrounds be the same minty green as the background in my blog.
Well I want to change this to white...
So I am going back through all my past inspiration boards & re-doing them.
A pain in the butt, lemme tell you.
But I know it'll be worth it because then I can pin my boards to Pinterest!
So if you are wondering why some stuff looks sloppy right now, that is why!
I hope to have all the edits completed by the end of this week.
I'll also be re-doing the color themes on my blog to navy, orange & light blue.
It's a work in progress but I'm pretty excited about all the changes!

Have a good Tuesday!

Country Music Brings Tears

In memory of Sandy:

She dropped the phone & burst into tears
The doctor just confirmed her fears
Her husband held it in and held her tight
Cancer don't discriminate or care if you're just 38
With three kids who need you in their lives
He said, "I know that you're afraid I am too, but you'll never be alone.
I promise you. 
When you're weak, I'll be strong.
When you let go, I'll hold on.
When you need to cry, I swear that I'll be there to dry your eyes.
When you feel lost and scared to death, like you can't take one more step,
Just take my hand, together we can do it.
I'm gonna love you through it."
She made it through the surgery fine
They said they caught it just in time
But they had to take more than they planned
Now it's forced smiles and baggy shirts
To hide what the cancer took from her
But she just wants to feel like a woman again
She said, "I don't think I can do this anymore."
He took her in his arms and said, "That's what my love is for,
When you're weak, I'll be strong
When you let go, I'll hold on.
When you need to cry, I swear that I'll be there to dry your eyes.
When you feel lost and scared to death, like you can't take one more step,
Just take my hand, together we can do it.
I'm gonna love you through it
And when this road gets too long, I'll be the rock you lean on
Just take my hand, together we can do it.
I'm gonna love you through it.
I'm gonna love you through it.

By Martina McBride

See this is what happens when I watch CMT & listen to country music.
I find really great songs that are really touching.

Winnie & her new friend :)
