For your visual pleasure (depending on who you are, I suppose), some of my latest wedding inspirations…


I love these bright, popping, simple flowers.
Love these twinkling lights. I’m thinking it might look neat with old fashioned Christmas bulb lights.
I guess if I never find the antique topper there is always the crafty route!
We’ve got dozens of these lying around our house…

I know I haven’t had a good wedding update recently, but everything is moving along just swimmingly. After the initial frenzy to get the church and reception booked, the rest has been falling into place– and I am loving every second of it.

The bridesmaid dresses are bought. The only thing I’ll tell you is that they were cheap ($55 dollars from Macy’s, baby!), and are purple and funky–and my gals all look INCREDIBLY adorable in them.

Ian and I enlisted my dad to take some engagement photos, which turned out fantastic.

Also, my dress has arrived and is currently residing in my former bedroom at my parents house. A lot of people were surprised to hear that I bought it so soon after the engagement–how did I know it was the one? Didn’t I want to look anywhere else? What if I found something that I liked better?

Because, I say, I walked out of the dressing room that night and saw my mom, aunt, sister, and bridesmaid erupt in smiles. I looked at myself in the mirror and just knew–I knew that the dress could not fit me better (both physically AND style-wise!) and that I didn’t want to look any farther. I had found it. Come on–this was my face when I knew it was the one:

Mid laugh.... Not sneezing.


Speaking of weddings and things I love, the fiance should be arriving soon for our weekly Monday night dinner date. On tonight’s menu: pasta with broccoli and a side of mashed sweet potatoes. Yes, he is practically marrying Julia Child.
