Wedding Florals and a bit more!

Leave a comment

Goooood afternoon!  Ok!  I have another wedding post for ya’ll!  (because wedding posts give me a southern accent ;))  Before I jump into floral discussions, I wanted to share a few details from the beautiful party Scott’s family threw us to celebrate our upcoming (gasp!  cannot wait!) wedding.

That sign, though!  Boy did that make me well up with emotion; the party was simply wonderful and we felt so so loved by so many.  We are so thankful. Scott’s mom, dad, sil and bil planned the evening and it really could not have been more wonderful.  My (stb) sister-in-law was responsible for all of the special details and we couldn’t thank her enough. She is really good and we keep telling her she needs to start a business!

 

My (stb) father-in-law gave a roast/toast 😉 that was so special and actually made both and I start crying.  I got to meet so many lovely people and it was so sweet that everyone came out to celebrate with us.  There was so much love under the tent and we are forever grateful.  xo 😉

OK, now..onto the florals!  So, for the wedding, as I mentioned, we are going for a “garden wedding brunch” feel 🙂  Given that we are getting married in an actual garden, I saw the floral area as a way to cut some costs, ya know?!  Kinda works great 😉  I thought it would be fun to show our vision board that the florist created for us.  We are using Papertini and have been THRILLED thus far.  Tell them I sent ya 😉

Also, some people have asked; and yes I will be changing my name!  My name will be my children’s last name as my new middle name and my new last name will be Scott’s.  I like it.  A lot.  🙂  Now please!  Tell me about your wedding stuff!

A Wedding Post

Leave a comment

Hey there!  So I realize I haven’t really shared a ton about our wedding for a variety of reasons, but I wanted to start sharing some fun details given that today is the two month mark!   <Squeal!!> I. Am. So. Excited. And. Blessed. 


The way he treats me and my boys, ensuring that each of our needs are met and supporting all of us in all aspects. We are all so grateful. 


Ok. Ok. Moving on to the wedding! We will be getting married at the historic Powel House in the Society Hill section of the city which happens to actually be a block from our home! No transportation needed 😉 Some parts will be in the garden and some inside. It is a really really neat place and just perfect for us. 


We are going with a garden brunch that has sort of become the theme (“yea perfect for garden brunch” lol). Anyway, I’ve been actually super laid-back in planning the wedding. We have a super busy life and things have been extra busy lately, so a lot of the wedding details and planning have gone to the wayside a bit. But recently, I was able to wrap up the preparations and I am super excited with what we have. I am super excited to be sharing some of it on the blog and I thought today would be the perfect day to start sharing some wedding posts because it isn’t exactly 2 months from now and the invitations went out today! Stoked.

So, our three boys will be in the wedding. Scott and I are so so excited about this. I will share later what their roles will be, but assume it will be adorable 😉 


Speaking of kiddos and adorable, I got these sweet gifts for our two flower girls…


And this ring bearer shirt for our ring bearer along with a cute puzzle that he can put together; it spells out “will you be our ringbearer?”

Ooook so, for not bringing up the wedding at all, I think I’ve given you a lot of good details for today. I will try to do at least one post per week for the next eight weeks until the big day!  Kinda excited. Tell me about your big day!

10 Amaz”ing” Amazon Dresses

Leave a comment

Hello hello!  Boy has life been (crazy) busy!  I have not checked in for a LONG time and was thinking of calling it quits all together!  But then I was looking through my recent Amazon purchases (trying to track something, but of course) and I thought it would be funny to update you a bit on our lives via my purchases through Amazon; keeping it light.  And THEN I realized that I HAD to share my recent Amazon summer shopping spree with you all because I literally snagged 10 dresses (last two are rompers) for under $200 bucks and completed my summer wardrobe within two days thanks to PRIME! 🙂  I really wanted a few summer dresses, specifically a tank dress and a long flowy short-sleeved one too,so this is what I came up with!  ALL dresses listed are prime (Free 2 day shipping or less!) and I own them all so I am not just touting something I don’t own although it is embarrassing to admit how many packages I received last week…Affliate links included because…have you seen my purchases 🙂  LOL  Also, the first step is admitting you have a problem…

  1.  82 Days Rayon Span Jersey Maxi with elastic waistband- ($19.95) So, I got this baby in black and wore it down to Delaware.  I fell in love IMMEDIATELY when I put it on. It is SO nice to have a sleeve with coverage and the elastic waist is suuuuper flattering.  It washes well and comes in a BUNCH of colors; I got it in red and grey too 🙂

  2. This time it was a floral one (Sibylla Woman’s Short Sleeve Printing Dress($11.99!!) …I LOVE this dress; the print is so feminine and pretty!  I love how it flows and it is perfect dressed down for the beach or up for date night!  They have some other color patterns as well that are super cute.  IMG_3919
  3. No seriously though, if buying your clothing on Amazon is wrong, I don’t want to be right.  This simple black blouson dress was less than $25 and fits amazingly.  I was specifically looking for a short-sleeved black blouson cotton dress per a cute look I saw on my future SIL and wanted one.  This one totally works and can be easily dressed up or down!Screen Shot 2017-06-30 at 3.50.41 PM
  4. Aaaaand….here is THE most perfect tank dress ever...for less than $19!  I LOVE this brand, Molerani that I found randomly on Amazon and the material is soooo soft and the perfect amount of stretchy.  They also wash really well; a test that most cotton-blend dresses seem to fail for me, at least.IMG_3781 Color palette: Screen Shot 2017-06-30 at 3.55.40 PM
  5. OK, so this next one I got specifically for the pool and I LOVE the pockets and the slits.  I ended up sporting this around the city a bit too and it is a perfect “errand running” dress with the pockets!  Also super cheap, coming in at only $23.99 and offers a TON of different colors.

    The one I got pictured here is a charcoal grey

  6. Next up is anther floral one; at first I thought I was going to return this.  The material felt cheap when it came and I was worried it would look as much.  But when I tried it on, the fit was AMAZING.  I LOVE the criss cross chest area and it is actually insanely flattering.
  7. Yup.  Bought it in this print too. ($20.99)  It is coming later today. I want to pair it with my red patent leather peep toes!  Hellooo July 4th!Screen Shot 2017-07-01 at 9.41.30 AM
  8. Iconic Luxe Handkerchief tank dress-($21.99) I found this baby while searching for a plain tank dress and I instantly knew I had to have it. I LOVE handkerchief hemlines, and secret…my wedding dress has that hemline!!!  The colors offered in this one are extensive and awesome as well!Screen Shot 2017-07-01 at 9.47.20 AM
  9. Coutgo Women’s Leaf Print Strapless Jumpsuit overlay Romper- OMGGGGG this is the last delivery I am waiting on (other than #7) and I CANNOT wait.  LOVE the print and the short length.  #runnerlegs AND it is only $16.89!!!!Screen Shot 2017-07-01 at 9.52.51 AM
  10. Jinting Summer Army Green Zip up romper ($18.99)- LOVE this with my tan gladiators and Ray Bans; coming from a completely not fashion-forward chick, I can tell you that this is the closest I get to “styled.”  LOL!  Snag this one!  Tip:  order a size up.  Screen Shot 2017-07-01 at 9.57.21 AM

Okie dokie!  Hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed “cuuuuuuuurating” it lol 🙂 Happy summer/Fourth of July and let me know which of these gems you snag and what you think of them! xo
