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!

4July

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 :)

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
