My Weekend Lookbook: October 25-26, 2014

 

Breakfast on the porch via Ashley Brooke Designs

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. It’s finally cooling down a bit here in the Sunshine State, and it is AWESOME!!! So naturally, we have started having pretty much every meal on the weekends outdoors, especially breakfast! Honestly, is there anything better than an early morning breakfast on your porch?

Photo 2. We spent Saturday night at my grandmother’s lake house. As always, it was breathtakingly beautiful. I honestly think it looks like something right out of a movie… I could sit on her back porch all day!

Photo 3. We have a big week over here filled with parties, potlucks, and celebrations… I figured I needed to get a head start on this week’s baking situation! I found a recipe for Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies on Pinterest last week that I was dying to try! And true to form… Pinterest never lets me down! These are DELISH!!

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: October 11-12, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. We had one of those “Get It Together” weekends–you know, the ones where you spend most of your Saturday organizing your garage, weeding the flower beds, planting new plants, and of course copious amounts of Home Depot runs! Well, that is EXACTLY what we did, and it was awesome. If you know me you know there is nothing I love more than organizing. And after the whirl-win of a month we had… it was time! But gosh, did everything turn out pretty! Nothing like pretty flowers to make all that hard work seem worth it!

Photo 2. Okay, so it isn’t exactly “cool” here in Florida yet… but you can’t blame me for trying to pretend! On Sunday I may have been wearing a mini skirt on the bottom, but the top half of my outfit was all buttoned up and a little “Fall-esque”.

Photo 3. After really giving our house a good Fall-tastic makeover with new pretty mums and yummy chili, I thought Lucy need a bit of a wardrobe change as well. And be honest. Have you EVER seen anything as cute as Lucy in a gingham bow?! Seriously.

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: October 3-5, 2014

 

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. One of my besties got married this weekend in the most beautiful little tucked-away town in Georgia! We had so much fun celebrating the happy couple and dancing the night away! It was kinda dreamy.

Photo 2. Since we were already in Georgia for the wedding, we decided to make a little mini vacay out of our trip and headed up to our family cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I think it is pretty safe to say that there is nothing quite like mountain air! Even though it was a quick little trip, it was, as always, perfect!

Photo 3. Last week, a little box all wrapped up came in the mail with this special little piece of jewelry. It’s a map necklace of where we got married from my gal Francesca! It is quite possibly one of the sweetest gifts ever, and she even sent my main squeeze a set of matching cufflinks. I have yet to take off this pretty thing since the day I got it! Also, it was really fun wearing it to a wedding as a married couple this weekend! So much mushy-goodness I can’t stand it!

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: September 27-28, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

 

Photo 1. Okay, first off, I love to cook… honestly, I love it! And, ever since we got back from our honeymoon, I’ve gotten all Leave It to Beaver and have been whipping up some pretttttty domestic menus. If we are giving out awards, the whole chicken I roasted this weekend gets the gold metal. Also, I’m not sure there is anything more June Cleaver than this dish!

 

Photo 2. On Saturday I attended little Sadie’s first birthday party! I cannot believe she is one, and I cannot believe B is a mom! It’s crazy!! Seriously, it feels like it was just yesterday when I was in that hospital room cuddling my new best friend! There is nothing quite a sweet as witnessing your besties become moms! Happy Birthday Miss Sadie B! P.S. Sadie’s invites were just the CUTEST! P.P.S. Also, we gave her that little bumble bee scooter, which I thought was the cutest thing ever, but Sadie has mixed feelings… I’m thinking they will become best friends soon, but right now she is playing some major hard to get!

 

Photo 3. Last but not least, I attended and spoke at Blog Fete this weekend! I was so excited to return this year as a speaker alongside Mandy, Sarah, Carmen, and Kori! Not only did we have the best time chatting about what we do best, but we also had so much fun getting to know all of the attendees! And, if that wasn’t enough… I brought a whole table of ABD goodies and my girl Charlotte worked the table like a pro! Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to call this work!

P.S. See more of the conference here–> #BlogFete2014 & #BlogFete ! I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: September 14-21, 2014

Happy Monday, friends! I know this post is a little tardy (with it being 5:00 in the afternoon and all), but I thought, better late than never! Plus I just HAD to share a few photos from our honeymoon!! And, oh! If you didn’t know… I got married last week to this dreamy guy! So, here is just a peek at what I’ve been up to the past week…

Photo 1. Our first stop on our week-long California honeymoon was the Ritz-Carlton in Halfmoon Bay. It was, as you can see, something straight out of a fairytale. And to put icing on the cake, the team at the Ritz sent us over a very special delivery that included a hand written note on the custom stationery I illustrated for them. Pretty sure I died and went to heaven.

Photo 2. Our second stop, was Napa Valley! We stayed at the tiniest bed and breakfast and vineyard hopped! It was the best. The weather was incredible and the people in Napa are just the sweetest! And to put a cherry on top of our Napa trip, my sweet husband surprised me with a beautiful sunset dinner at Auberge du Soleil. Not only was the food amazing and the surprise incredibly thoughtful, but his comment on why he picked this place really made my whole night … “I saw that you pinned it, so I thought you must REALLY want to go there!!” The sweetest.

Photo 3. Our last stop was San Francisco! We had the best time being coffee snobs (hello Four Barrel Coffee… why are you so delicious!!!!???) and sight-seeing until our little feet couldn’t walk any further! Neither of us had ever been to San Fran, so each had a few things that we really wanted to see, and on the tippity top of my list were The Painted Ladies, and oh my gosh are the pretty! I studied The Painted Ladies in Interior Design school, and of course being a child of the nineties, I absolutely NEEDED to see where the opening scene in Full House was filmed. You know, #priorities.

Anyways, I hope your weekend/week was equally as lovely as mine was… and hopefully you enjoyed our #ABDTakeoverWeek as much as we did, but for now I am off to go get dinner in the oven!! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: September 6-7, 2014

 

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1: This weekend I attended one of my best girls’ bachelorette party! We did it up big: from a beach day in matching “Ally + Nick” tank tops, to a very fancy slumber party with homemade ice cream sundaes. Not sure we could have had more fun if we tried!!

P.S. My ABD Ice Ice Baby Tumbler is PERFECT for the beach…it’s the first time I have taken it to the beach, and gosh was it cuuuute.

Photo 2: After all day at the beach, we came home and got all gussied up for a fancy night out on the town, and of course… a round of margaritas!!

P.S. Doesn’t the bride-to-be look adorable in her Space 46 tutu!?!

Photo 3: Let’s be honest, a slumber party would not be complete without fresh donuts from our favorite local bakery! These poor donuts didn’t stand a chance… they were all gone in 3 minutes flat, but then again, who can resist a chocolate glazed with sprinkles!!?

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx
