This Is It

This is it. This is the beautiful place we began. This is where I said "yes" 5 blissful whirlwind years ago. Friday was the anniversary of our engagement and to celebrate we decided to have a romantic candlelit picnic at the same spot he proposed under the stars. It was perfection. I don't know why this is the first year we thought to go back! We talked and ate, laughed and kissed and reminisced about how young and crazy in love we were that night. A lot has changed in 5 years,  yet that feeling has stayed the same. We've grown a up a lot. Hell, we were pretty much kids when we decided to embark on this journey together. But I've always been more than ecstatic with the decision I made. I love this man more than anything. He's everything to me and more. He's the sole reason for my existence. I feel insanely lucky to have found him so young and I'm thrilled to spend the rest of my life living this adventure of ours!

On The Dock

Photography By Emily Cooper
A couple days ago I finally got the chance to shoot with the adorable and very talented Emily! We've been bloggy friends for a while now - and apparently we live super close - so honestly I don't know why this didn't happen earlier. I also live about 10 minutes from this lake and have never taken photos here despite always wanting to so when she asked if I had a location in mind I jumped on that! We had to brave a TON of spiders on the docks and, you guys, they were HUGE. And EVERYWHERE. But other than that and a group of cat-calling guys on a boat we had a pretty good time and I couldn't be more happy with how they turned out! Isn't she amazing?!
Well, I don't know about you but I am so happy it's Friday!! It also happens to be the anniversary of when my Hubby proposed so we're planning a romantic little picnic tonight (in the same spot the magic happened). I'm pretty excited! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! :)

Bedazzled

Remember when bedazzling was the coolest thing? You know, around the same time unicorns and Lisa Frank were big? I probably had the biggest Lisa Frank sticker collection, ever. Anywho, I'm bringing the bedazzled look back with this bitchin' denim vest. That's right, bitchin'. I may have also bought some Hello Kitty bandaids this week and worn one to work. What can I say, I guess I'm feeling nostalgic! I have to mention that I also got complimented on said bandaid.. twice. ;) I'm kind of obsessed with braids lately too, although I can't really handle much more than a simple one like this. I might have to have my sister give me some lessons over the weekend. What good is a hairstylist for a sister if she doesn't share some of her wisdom? Have an awesome hump day!!

Gold + Leather

 Hey peeps! How was your weekend? I definitely got caught up on sleep, that's for sure! In between snoozing I made it out to see my friend's incredible chalk art along with many other masterpieces at a fun "Chalk the Block" event and visited the state fair with Jody and her Hubby. We munched on some yummy fair food, swooned over a baby calf who drooled all over me and found out both our hubbies are deathly afraid of snakes when we wandered into the reptile exhibit. I swear every time we hang out we discover something else they have in common, they're like the same person!! We had such a fun night even though we never got to ride the ferris wheel because of the huge line. Such a bummer. But it's always good to see my bestie! This outfit is what I wore for a lazy Sunday of coffee and Netflix. No shame. The only reason I got dressed was for the brief visit we made to my in-laws. Leggings + a long tee + lots of gold jewelry = a perfect Sunday look. Sundays are the best. We need more of them, don't you think?

Neutrals

 
I can't believe it's Friday already! I've been a crappy blogger this week.. oops! But I did get the opportunity to do a couple shoots this week and go to a fancy dinner with my girls, so it's been a good week! Hopefully it'll be a fun weekend too. Me and the hubby already got a head start last night watching his favorite band play for the second time this year, he was in heaven! Now I just need a good concert to drag him to ;) I can't remember if I mentioned it but my amazing sister did this balayage on my hair recently and I can't get enough of it!! It's nice to have a fun change for Fall and it turned out soo good! Seriously if you're in the area Kaity is the best at color!! Also I'm still so obsessed with this hat. I found it at the Vans store a couple years ago while waiting for Ethan to try on shoes! Such a random place to find a good hat but I'm glad I happened upon it! I'm still on the hunt for a couple cute new ones this year but no luck finding anything super affordable yet. Any suggestions? Have an awesome weekend! I'll see you all on Monday.

Pink Shift

Hey there! Another Monday. And I'm not even mad about it. I have some fun things planned this week and the fact that I got new hair, pool time and some love from my sister's adorable new puppy this weekend makes it that much better! With my mom gone Sundays just haven't been the same, but yesterday my Aunt had us over for a yummy homemade meal and let us swim in her pool. We finished the night curled up on the couch with ice cream watching Jumanji on netflix. It felt like home. Sometimes theres nothing better than family time! I'm loving this shift dress I snatched off the sale rack at Zara on our Vegas girl's trip! I wish someone would throw a 20's party so I could dress it up with this tassel necklace and a fancy hairpiece...maybe some gloves...haha! It would be perfect for that. I love the loose hang of it. The ruffled sleeves and the pretty gold beading on the shoulders are what made me fall in love with it! Hope your week is off to a good start! My first to-do when I get off work is a nice long nap!
