The Royal Fashion

To be honest with you I did not plan on paying much attention to the Royal Wedding. Yes, I had my DVR set to record it but I did not get up at 4am to follow along. Well, I flipped it on while getting ready for work and of course found myself glued to the TV. I was fascinated by the fashion, music and the traditions.

She looked beautiful in Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton

The hats and fashion did not disappoint either...

These were a bit interesting!

Check out her heels!

I am looking forward to watching the wedding from the beginning and seeing more photos of the day come out. 


Have a fabulous weekend!

Rain Rain Go Away

We have had some crazy and unfortunately sever weather the past few weeks in Georgia and last nights storms really topped it off. I am over the constant rain but do wish I had any of these fun  umbrellas or one of the many colors of Hunter Wellies...

Bite Size

For those of you that know me you are aware of my fascination with all things mini. Whether it's mini food, plates, bowls or utensils I love it all! My husband reminds me sometimes that we do not live in a small house! I want to try some of these mini food ideas at upcoming parties...










I love the idea of everyone having their own bite size portion instead of having a community serving dish. Looks like it's time to have another party!

I want a gelato...

Love this photo on the home page of Anthropologie! It caught my eye while I was stopping by to see what was new with Anthro. I am such a fan of green and shades of coral.

It totally has me wanting a new dress for Spring and some gelato!

I Got an Award!


My sister-in-law from Spruce Hill gave me the Versatile Blogger Award a few weeks back.


Here are the rules:
- Thank the person who gave you the award.
- Pass the award on to 10 other versatile bloggers and let them know you did.
- And tell seven fun facts about yourself.
She has been blogging since 2008 and has a lot of friends out there in the blogged world so I was excited to see I was 1 of her chosen 10. You must check out her blog which started as a support system through her battle with breast cancer and a way to share her family life. She beat it once but unfortunately the cancer came back and she is currently in the process of kicking its butt again. Her strength and positive attitude inspire me and I think of her on a daily basis! Thank you for passing along the award and for being you!

Here are a few fun facts about me...
1. I grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania until I was 7 and then moved to Michigan.

2. I met my husband 7 years ago on a Carribbean cruise and I moved from Chicago to Atlanta 3 months later to be with him. We have been married for 2 years!

3 of my nieces pictured here-they have beautiful photography skills and are so creative!
3. I have 8 nieces and 1 nephew and they all played a part in my wedding!


4. I am a reality show junkie and will give just about any show a chance!

 
 5. I can easlily get lost in a pile of magazines rather than a book-I buy way too many!

 
6. My husband and I love to travel and hope to make Spain our next destination in 2012!

7. I love my pup Ryder...best little guy ever!

 I would like to pass the award on too...

Ice Cream Parlor Reception...yes please!

I love this idea that popped up on 100 Layer Cake yesterday. Especially for a Summer wedding to cool down your guests from the heat or craziness on the dance floor.
I love the unique toppings they chose...spiced chocolate w/ bacon!
Wish I was a guest at that wedding!

Would you do this instead of the traditional wedding cake?

Mindless Monday...Hole-in-One

I am not much a sports fan but each year I get a little more sucked in to The Masters. I love that it is played here in Georgia so there is always so much buzz around Atlanta during Masters week. This year's final day did not disappoint, it was a very exciting final round.







I promise you won't see any more sports related posts but I will say going to see The Masters at Augusta National is definitely on my bucket list.

What is on your bucket list?
