Friday’s Fab Finds: More Ideas for Your Crib

HAPPY FRIIIIIDAY!!! Wahoo! I won’t let this impending natural disaster kill my excitement! (And, don’t worry, I’m fully stocked on enough wine, food and gossip mags to keep me sane for at least 3 days!)

I had a few ideas for what to post for today’s finds, but of course, Pinterest got in the way and I found a whole new slew of gorgeous somethin’ somethin’s to delight your eyeballs with. And, even  better, they all have to do with creating your perfect nest. Like many brides, I moved right after the wedding, so creating a dream newlywed home has been top of mind for me. Even though I’ve been married for 5 months, I’m still trying to create the perfect home for me and my new hubby. Well, I’m pretty sure these fabulous finds and inspiration ideas will get me there (once I have enough money to buy them, of course. Anyone want to sponsor me?)







and the world’s most perfect little set up:


Have a safe and happy weekend! For more of my musings, check out my Five Things Friday!

Fridays Fab Finds: Peppermint Pretty

Penny Candy

Like what you see? Well you’ll just have to read to find out more!

IT’S FRIDAY, WAHOOO!!! Even though my week wasn’t exceptionally stressful or irritating, I’m still beyond happy it’s Friday. For one, we are escaping the hustle and bustle of the city  for a weekend at the Shenandoah Valley. Not only will the weather be gorgeous [60’s and sunny, yes please!] but the scenery will also be remarkable. I need some fresh mountainous air and lots of bright fall foliage. I also need to spend 2 full days exercising, especially with the wedding countdown ticking away! Luckily, I also booked us a pet friendly room in the hotel on the top of one of the mountains [hello gorgeous sunrise!] which means the pups can get out for some much-needed exercise. Although, I suspect, Oscar will be in my arms the whole time. Let’s just say he’s not a “rough and outdoorsy” kind a boy.

Enough about me though, it’s time for some fab finds. I know that’s why ya’ll stick around 🙂 Honestly, as much as I’ve tried to shy away, I just can’t overcome my blatant, wallet busting OBSESSION with Etsy. I’ve tried to not shop there, but I just can’t stay away. And Peppermint Pretty’s, a vintage wedding dress line based out of Kansas City, page is partly to blame. Erin Coleman, the owner and designer, has seriously blown me away with her stunning, one of a kind vintage wedding dresses. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are incredibly affordable! With no dress costing more than $1,500, they are priced to fit into almost any budget! I could ramble about these stunning gowns forever, but I know ya’ll just want to see them. Get ready for some seriously amazing dresses. And don’t say I didn’t warn you about getting hooked!

Fabulous Foodie Friday: Edible Favors

This could be due to the fact that I’m starving or just the plain fact that I love food, but today’s post is all about edible stuff.  And not just random stuff, edible party favors for all the lucky guests attending your wedding! There’s no better way to say thank you than to leave your guests with some yummy treats as they head home, back to the hotel or wherever the night takes them. A full guest is a happy one!
