Oldie But Goodie - Patriotic Wedding

I thought I'd repost one of my favorite posts from last year, one that kinda got my blog rolling because Abby from Style Me Pretty posted it on her site last year. I'm not being lazy, just thought I'd repost since I had like 3 readers at the time.

In honor of the 4th of July, I put together a red, white and blue wedding inspiration board. I thought it would be great for July weddings, military weddings or just someone who is very patriotic!


Here's to the fourth! We're headed to the beach tomorrow for some fun in the sun. The neighbors are having a fireworks celebration and I'm sure we'll be downing some yummy burgers!


  1. I got married July 5th last year, and we went back and forth about do we do red, white, and blue or something else?

    In the end we went with something else, because I wasn't sure I could pull off the patriotic theme without it looking cheesy.

    This picture proves it can be done beautifully! I've seen some gorgeous red, white, and blue weddings lately.

  2. Super cute! You should check out Maggie's wedding at Eat, Drink, Marry. They had an election themed wedding and it was gorgeous!

  3. Lovely! That invitation with the concentric red, white, and blue circles is darling.

    Ditto checking out Maggie's wedding. Her attention to detail, using this color scheme, was just incredible.

    Funny, I was just mulling over doing a similar post. If I do, I'll link back to yours of course.

  4. I love this post. I was married before my husband joined the military, but the wives host red/white/blue parties year round. Cute ideas for when it's my turn to be hostess. :o) I love the invitations and the decorated tables. But for the cupcakes...I HAVE to go with cupcakes gormets mini americana sets.

  5. Absolutely LOVE this! I'm a R/W/B girl all year round, but I've never seen it as a wedding theme. How clever :)

  6. I love all the pictures! The navy and white polka dot dress is super cute!

  7. Wow. What a nice board. So much action to it.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
