wedding wishfulness...

My sister in law is getting married this April so as a family we have been busy planning, dress shopping, and brainstorming like crazy.  Now I don't want to spoil anything for you but thought I would share with you our inspiration for this beautiful occasion!  I am obsessed with those black champagne flutes against a white wedding dress!  We are going with high glamour and anything that makes a statement.  Because if you know our sweet Emily then you know it will not dissapoint!

 In high school my mom and I would watch this on repeat.
  I am beyond ready for fall!  Happy Monday everyone!

crazy tired...

I've been missing and I hate that so much.  But it has been so incredibly crazy around here lately.  Ever since we returned home from Michigan I have hosted a party at my house every weekend.  Then there was the garage sale, which took all of my extra energy away from me.  Sounds silly but they can be exhausting! 
 So after the garage sale I took a week off from working out and anything that had to do with thinking, or so I thought. 

I did catch up on laundry and All My Children and then my beautiful sister in law Emily got engaged!! We couldn't be more excited for her!  And now we have a major wedding to plan for this spring!!  (So if I have a lot of wedding on my mind in the near future you know why.)

Then yesterday happened.  My other sister in law and I were headed over to Springfield for an evening of wandering around Target and Hobby Lobby, until we got a phone call from the husbands about a field fire surrounding her house!  Yikes!  We drove back home so fast our children were squealing with excitement and thought they were on a "rollercoaster".  I was not the driver by the way ;) 
The fire was pretty scary but everyone was safe and sound and after 4 fire departments arrived and fought it, the blaze was quickly under control and put out.  I did wake up with a horrific headache from all of the smoke however... So now I am home with a baby boy that has a viral infection and very red throat and he is refusing his bottles.  So I think I will take any of those beautiful beds in the photos above and go to sleep now.  Goodnight all and thanks for listening to my crazy week!

The big brown monster

I'm giving up the fight on the leather couch.  Our leather is in the room with our fireplace.  A set that was purchased before marriage by Adam.  Yes, I said a set.  A set of three brown leather pieces of furniture.   Our oh so comfy deep velvet couch is in the room that the kiddos are in the most and I am afraid that it would look better cozied up to our fireplace.  That means the leather couch will be out in the open next to the dining table and kitchen.  I'm going to try it today to see how I feel about it.  If I could achieve the look in the photo above it wouldn't be so terrible.  I'm a little nervous!  I'll let you know how it works out!
