So.... I've been MIA... For awhile... But, don't worry! I haven't died, I didn't get injured, my family is still kicking like there's no tomorrow... So where have I been, you ask? I ask the same thing! I actually have been in blogland religiously... and so inspired by everything I see! but sometimes I feel that everyone else's creative vibe surpasses my own with such a huge, massive gap, I'd rather just soak in everyone else rather that put my 2 cents in...

However, I'm taking back my independence! Here I am! My 2 cents and all! :D

Ok, so wedding update:

My wedding dress came in weeks ago and I am just so excited about it!! Decided to go with a back up Jcrew dress that is so simply me I just took the plunge and ordered it online and it fits just about perfectly! Just have to alter a couple things... and having some straps placed on it. (my boobs have never done strapless well)

As far as accessories, I'm definitely going with the country, shabby sheek look (according to my mom). Even wearing cowboy boots!

I'm currently deciding if I want to wear some kind of cardigan... I don't know... I think some of them are pretty stinking cute. Plus April 17th after the sun goes down might be pretty chili!

I also just made a couple of purchases from Anthropologie and I'm going to see how they look with the dress as soon as I can! I was going to upload the image of the cardigan from the site but it must've already sold out because its no longer there! I really love the vintage look of it. I totally ordered it on a whim, going to see how they go together.

I also got the flower for a hair accessory from antrhopologie. You can't really see it well in my pic so here it is... It may be a little too large but I'm loving it and well...will just have to see...
My guys outfits are coming together so well too! I can hardly believe it! Will have to update later when I have more time!

I Hope...

I hope this year I'll see something like this...

maybe a little this...


or that...


who knows...


rain won't be stopping me...


its' going to be grand....

Sweet Excitement

Its the first Monday of the new year, and my official kick it into gear day of 2010! Although its been hard saying goodbye to 2009 for it was so good to me (my sister's engagement and wedding, my cousin's engagement and wedding... MY ENGAGEMENT!), I'm ready to dust off the remaining old year and jump into the new year, afresh and new!!


There is something about starting a new year that energizes and excites me! Oh what possibilities, what new wonderful happenings are going to happen! What will this New Year bring...

I do know one joyous occasion it will bring: I'm going to marry the love of my life and I can hardly wait...

Lets Start the New Year Right

Last night as I was ringing in the New Year with family and loved ones, I imagined I was Marjorie Reynolds in the 1942 movie Holiday Inn, kissing the old year out, kissing the new year in...


How fabulous would it be to travel to a place like Holiday Inn for the New Years festivities... and all the other holiday celebrations for that matter! As one of the song goes, "If you're burdened down with trouble, if your nerves are wearing thin, park your load down the road and come to Holiday Inn. You would definitely find me in there if there was!

So the Hyatt wasn't quite my Holiday Inn exactly but I still had a lovely time downtown Greenville, eating gourmet wood-fired pizzas, drinking white wine (yes, not a fan of champagne unless mixed with OJ), listening to fireworks overhead, and wishing the crowd a "Happy New Year!" I hope everyone started the new year right last night as well!

Let's start the new year right

Twelve o'clock tonight

When they dim the light

Let's begin

Kissing the old year out

Kissing the new year in

Let's watch the old year die

With a fond good-bye

And our hopes as high

As a kite

How can our love go wrong if

We start the new year right?

~Holiday Inn, Lets Start the New Year Right~
