Needing some motivation...

I should have tons of motivation  considering the post I have below. lol. 

But... it's kind of chilly this morning and for some reason I'm just not feeling in the "cleaning" mood. Especially since my laundry pile is ginormous!!!!!
So, I'm on the search for creative/beautiful pictures to get my creative juices flowing.

Here's what I found-

{Love these fabric covered light switch plates! Now to find a D.I.Y. for them...}

{What a cool idea! I need to find me some cool, vintage embroidery hoops. : )}

{I love cupcakes.... and owls!!!! This look so simple too!}

{I want this room. Period.}

{Such a cool pic...}

{Love this.}

{Cutest shoes... ever!]


85 days....

Until our wedding day!!!

Feels like forever...

I'm feeling...

overwhelmed, loved, unorganized, creative, sleepy, behind, happy, and excited.

and that's just the beginning. 

It was a wonderful day. Adam and I are two very loved people. 

We love you all in return as well.

Wedding Update... #2

The bridesmaid dresses are purchased! 


I can't believe how quickly I (and the girls) fell in love with the dresses. They were just perfect! The girls also look super great in them. Hope and Emily are the only ones who I haven't seen in the dress, but I'm sure they look stunning. : ) 

Another great thing about the dresses was that we were able to get them for only $45!!! The lady at the store was really nice and gave us the online discount at the store. I was so excited about this. 

Oh, we also picked out the shoes. 

They're really high... and sued... and purple. 

: ) 

Stay tuned for pics... 


I'm a W-I-N-N-E-R!!!!!

I entered a giveaway (as always) on one my favorite blogs the other day...

I actually entered like 5...

Anywho, I had seen that she posted the winners to the giveaways a few days ago, but I didn't bother to read through them... I never win, so I wasn't really in the mood to feel depressed about my lack of winning-giveaways-luck...


I totally won. : )

My art journal should be here within a week or so. 

Giveaway Champion,

P.S- Here's the link to the blog with the giveaway... that I WON.. (sorry)... You can check it out and see my WINNING... (I apologize again) comment!

Wedding Update!

So, I totally think I've found the bridesmaid's dresses... EEK!!! They're pretty much perfect. We are going to go try them on @ 1:00pm today. I really hope the girls like them. : )

*Oh, the dress color is called "blackberry"... doesn't that sound so romantic?

**They're on sale for $67 too!

***Emily is going to be able to find the dress down in Florida... yay!

****I'm really excited about this dress!

Freaking out over a purple dress,

P.S- I'm asking Karlee if she will be one of my bridesmaids right before we go try the dresses on... is this totally weird/lame of me? Just wondering...

{Ever read the book Beauty? You would totally understand if you had... }

Hmm... what to wear?

I like this time of year so much, partially because of all the cozy things you get to add to your wardrobe. : )

These are two of my favorite tops that I've found so far this season. {The cute owl is from Delias and the sweater is from American Eagle... }

Love these colors! My new favorite color combo is purple and orange... probably because I chose those colors to be in my wedding.. <3 {Forever 21}

These boots are A-mazing! Too bad buying both of these would cost one of my school

Mmm... these both look super comfy! {Jeans = Madwell.... Skirt = Maurices}

I'm ready to go shopping now! Sadly, I can't... thanks to the a fore mentioned school payment... Thank goodness for window shopping!

Go enjoy fall ya'll,

My Bridesmaids...

Gift Time!!!!
I made these super cute gifts for my bridesmaids this past weekend. I attached a little card to each of the jars that said, "Will you be my bridesmaid?"  (All of the cards had owls on them... of course!) There is going to be four bridesmaids in my wedding, so I was able to ask three of them on Sunday... all I have left is one more! Hope she says yes. : )

The girls are going to be wearing dark purple dresses for the wedding. We haven't found the dresses yet, but I'm hoping that we can check that off our list soon. Mom and I did snag their flowers on Friday night and they are gorgeous ($2 a bouquet too!)! They are so perfect... I just can't believe it! I'll be sure to post pics of them soon. 

My Bridesmaids!

Here is me with one of my bridesmaids and best girls... Shannon. : )

Here's another one of my girls... Hopey! (This pic is soooo old... lol.) Not only is she one of my closest friends, she is my future sister-in-law. : )

Here are Shannon, Hope, and I together. So cute.

Here's my fourth bridesmaid (Adam's sister) Karlee. She is the one I haven't been able to ask yet... I really hope she says yes... considering I've blogged about her and all... : )

This is my maid-of-honor... Emily. We're pretty much more like sisters. I miss her so much right now! She's down in Florida going to school. Thank goodness for e-mail and camera phones.... : )

Well, there are my girls. I'm so excited to have these great girls in my life... and my wedding! Now it's time to go dress shopping. : )

Where to begin?

Well, the wedding plans are coming along quite nicely now. I got my dress (finally!) two weekends ago and I am absolutely in love with it! It's my little girl fantasy in an adult sized dress. What more could I ask for? I can't share pictures of it yet... since my wonderful finacee is a reader of my blog... but just to put you all at ease, I will share LOTS of pictures of me in the dress after the wedding (January 7th, 2011!). It now hangs beside my bed and I sleep peacefully by it every night dreaming of the day that I get to wear it...

It finally feels like fall here in Indiana and I'm loving it... well... mostly. I could do with out the deary skies, but they are a reminder that we are receiving our much needed rain. Cozy sweaters, tall socks, pumpkin spice lattes, and the smell of the changing of the seasons is what I love about this time of year so that is what I'm going to focus on... that, and the huge "To Do-" list that's full of wedding/school/apartment things that needs to be done. Ahh.... to be young and perpetually burning the candle at both ends. : )

Oh, my 21st birthday is coming up too! Mmm... my birthday is right in the middle of the craziness of the holiday season, but I woudln't change it for anything. I think I'm going to ask for a new pair of boots for my birthday... or perhaps a puppy?

So sorry that this dear blog has been forgotten,

P.S- Tonight I'm asking the special girls in my life if they would be bridesmaids in my wedding... <3 I'll let you know how it goes soon!
