I am so beyond excited that today is Friday. You really have no idea. This week has been so long and I am just ready for a break!

In other news, I've had a lot of questions come in via email or via the comments section the last month or so and I haven't addressed them yet because they were sporadic. I think I finally have enough questions to turn this into an actual blog post. I mean I didn't want to bore you with a post here and a post there when there were only 1 here and 1 there. Who would really read that anyway??

  1. My bridal shower dress came from Nordstrom Rack. I knew I wanted to have a cute, white, modest dress because grandparent's would be there and they needed to match my white w/ pink polkadot shoes! :)
  2. We got married at the beautiful Hotel Cozumel & Resort. They were beyond amazing and I have never regretted our choice! The cruise was our mode of transportation to get there, we didn't actually go through Carnival to get married.
  3. The red pitcher came from a little shop from the downtown area of my town. The store sells a bunch of country/vintage items and I tend to go wild when I walk through the door.
  4. This wasn't really a question, but someone mentioned my chairs. They are from Cost Plus and were on sale recently. If you are looking for new chairs you should really check that store out. Soooo comfy!
I realized when rereading my post that I didn't take a photo of the front side of my sofa *shakes head and blushes because that was a total blonde moment*. I will have that added tomorrow after work because I want to show it off, in all of its linen glory, in the daylight. So... if you want to see the front of my super comfy, very cute sofa, go check it out again! :)

The last thing I want to address came via email from someone commenting on where my clothes come from. I guess it is "offensive" that I put the stores I buy my clothes from because they are on the more expensive side. To that I say I'm sorry I offended you, but that is where I shop and so therefor that's where my clothes tend to be from. I use a layout a fellow blogger created because I loved the fact that it shared where the items were from. I loved it for the simple fact that it made it easy if I wanted to run out to buy it. I love clothes and I love just is who I am and I won't apologize for that.

Anyway! The hubs and I have a crazy busy weekend ahead of us. We have dinner with friends tonight and the remainder of our spring cleaning on Sunday. Tomorrow, however, is going to be a blast because we are throwing a Cinco de Derby party. It's a good thing I work well under pressure because I still need to prep for it! I found a dozen or so ideas from Pinterest that I can't wait to use! I mean how did I ever plan a party before that wonderful site?!?


  1. I'm so jealous you had a destination wedding - if I could do it over, we would definitely get married in Mexico!

  2. We got married at El Cozumeleno! Too fun!

  3. Cinco de Derby.. that's the cutest thing I've ever heard! Have so much fun and be sure to take lots of pictures! :)

  4. you and your little family is so cute.
