Barbie Wedding Weekend Re-Cap

This weekend my dear sweet friend got married to the man of her dreams, so I just wanted to share a few pictures with you because I’m so obsessed. Literally.

The wedding was absolutely breathtaking, and Emily, the Barbie bride was stunning–

Now you can understand why I call her a Barbie–150160_2237829501258_490970980_n

Of course, Em couldn’t get married in any other shoes! These describe her perfectly!

I loved them!558946_10100860493087081_538387200_n Beautiful, Beautiful, BEA-ut-IFUL flowers that went along with our grey dresses so nicely!

Once I go through my pictures, I will upload more. I just couldn’t stand not posting some of the ones I had on my phone!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend–

Thankful Thursday

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.
 If you concentrate on what you don'e have, you will never, ever have enough. 
-Oprah

While I was in college, I had a class that I had to blog for. We were told each day to blog about a specific ‘topic’ for the day. We had to write 5 things that we were thankful for. Thursday’s were always ‘Thankful Thursday’ and it was my most favorite day to blog.

One reason being that I actually got to sit down and write out what I was thankful for.

Another reason is I became so much more grateful for the things I was writing about because I actually was forced to think about them. I could focus on how those particular things I’m ‘thankful for’ help me–Not only daily, but weekly, monthly, and yearly. It made a huge difference to me and I’ve always thought that it was such a great idea.

So, here I go with my Thankful Thursday…

  • Conquering the freezing cold to go to the gym.
  • Cleaning out old boxes and giving things to the Thrift Store.
  • J’s love for Jen’s and I.
  • My mom taking me shopping and talking me into things I wouldn’t buy for myself, yet I need.
  • Finding a ‘squirt’ form of Publix Sweet Tea.

What are you THANKFUL for? I’d love to hear!

Love @ First Bark…Maybe?

Ok, for those of you that are new….I have a dog, Jenny (Jen’s) and Lauryn Pumpkin has a dog named Brody (Brod’s).

Secretly, well maybe not the secret part…but we are trying to make Jen’s and Brod’s love each other.

Crazy? Yes, we know.

But, we want a dog wedding.

Yep, I said it. Dog wedding.

We have already told people our families and we plan on sending out invitations. Real Ones.

This is no joke.

However, there is ONE huge problem.

Jen’s is scared of Brody. SCARED. SCARED. SCARED.

He barks and growls at her. Maybe that’s his way of showing affection? I’m not sure…But, Jen thinks he needs to find a new way because she is not having it.

So, I’ve decided since warm weather is coming up (HOPEFULLY), we need to start planning this shindig. Which means….Brod’s is going to have to change his ways. Lauryn Pumpkin has been talking to him about his actions. Maybe they will corporate.

First, we sent a picture to hopefully help…and then you will see what we got in return.

Jen’s : Brody, Woof you be mine?   Yes or No

Brod’s : Jen’s, I’m sorry for barking at you. I get nervous around pretty girls. Of course, I’ll be yours. 

Maybe the next play-date will be better?

I know we are crazy…But, who doesn’t love their dog? And who doesn’t want a precious dog wedding? Ahhh!

Perfect excuse to enjoy some wine, perhaps! I’d say so myself.

MIA St. Patrick’s Day Style

Yes, I know my poor blog needs some TLC. I have been out of town and then I just haven’t gotten a chance to get on and post. Since, as we all know…post take a while. Quite a while.

So, to catch you up…I will add my post (after this) of my absolutely fabulous March BIRCHBOX. It is by far the best one I’ve received thus far!

Now, for those of you who know me know that I love HOLIDAY’s!

All of them.

I love to decorate and celebrate–

With that being said, of course I had to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this past weekend and there is no better place to celebrate than Savannah, GA!

How BEAUTIFUL is this picture from the parade?

My dear sweet lovie came into town and we got to celebrate with friends all weekend long. It was very much needed for both he and I. Of course, who doesn’t need some good celebrating with friends time? I think we all do! Maybe you could add a few, yes, I said FEW bev’s in there..and it will make it even better!

SAV

To make a short story as short as possible….Justin (the lovie) had to move 10 hours away for work. I have been up to visit him, but he has not been here since I have gotten Jen’s…So, this was their first chance to meet. She was very scared at first (and may still be), but she started warming up to him. Possibly because it was forced. He fell in love with her–I mean how could you not?

Do you see them cuddling in the top middle picture? Ahhh…Go ahead. I know you want to say it too. Ahhhh.

JensinSAV

Jen’s also loves Holiday’s. And the clothes that go along with them–

Now that I’ve got you a BIT caught up…I am no longer MIA. I am back!

However, right now I must go take a bath with my dear Vino, and then watch a movie.

ps…I’m already anxious to go back and have Oysters! Lauryn Pumpkin get to packing! newsig

The Bachelor : Finale

Wow…What a season.

I got to look stare at Sean.

Did I say stare?

Whoops. Is that the wine talking?

Wait, not whoops

It’s truthful.

Sean is beautiful. (Yes, Justin, you are MORE Beautiful, but we already know that. Duh.)

But, of course, it didn’t hurt having to watch Sean’s beautiful-self every Monday night with my bifflet.
For those of you who do not watch The Bachelor. Shame on you. 
I will let you know that tonight was the finale. Sean had to choose between two great girls.

Lindsay OR Catherine

I have like Lindsay all season, however she hasn’t always been my favorite. Maybe because I fell in love with Sarah? Who knows. But, I did feel a bit of chemistry between Sean and Lindsay. I’m not completely sure if it was partially due to all of the kissing, or perhaps the romantic dates they shared. I just think they both enjoyed each other. Lindsay fell head-over-heels in love with Sean and he didn’t seem to feel differently until the very last date. (I beg to differ, because I think he knew before then, but that is information we will never know.) Lindsay is young and in love. She wanted to find her prince charming and get married. Who doesn’t want to do that, right? I know she must be completely devastated, but I was so proud of her for what she said back to Sean after he told her she wasn’t the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.

She was more mature than I have seen her the whole entire season.

Quite a few weeks ago, I told Lauryn Pumpkin that I just knew it would be Catherine. Something about she and Sean was unlike he and any of the other girls. You could tell there was a spark. Maybe something weird between them that we didn’t’ all seem to understand? We will never know. But, I do know that they were giddy. They had fun together and it showed. She fell in love with him and I could see in his eyes that the feeling was mutual.

This absolutely sold the deal. 
Catherine is as equally sweet as Sean. This note was the perfect topping to one of the most beautiful proposals.
Personally, I think Catherine and Sean will be a great match. They are in love and it shows in every way possible. 
Sean is the sweetest man and it goes to prove that Catherine is a very, very lucky girl. Not many men would tear up on national television while watching his proposal. How sweet. 
Now, I’m looking forward to watching the wedding–

{We shall take a little time and re-cap this precious couple}
