Wedded Bliss

I LOVE weddings!!

I love the way the Bride sparkles, and the way the Groom Gloats almost like he is saying "she's mine" with his eyes. Everytime I get invited to a wedding, I get so excited!!! It is as if I am being asked to share in just of glitter of what the rest of their lives will look like.

I always envision them in thirty years when I am sitting at the wedding. I envision her being spoiled when she is sick, and her laughing at his jokes for the eight millionth time because she knows he likes it! I always pray as I'm sitting their watching them that the Lord will bless them for years to come, and WHEN {not if ... because it always will} it gets tough, they have the courage and strength to remember the love shared at the very moment they exchange their vows.

Takes me back to my wedding day .... ahhh. ;)

So, we went to our sweet friends wedding last weekend.
Cutest couple those two!

Just love them!
Congratulations Maggie and William!

So of course, I needed the perfect card for them.


and the most wonderful thank you card gift.

SOOOO, I have been a buying machine lately. LOL All in the name of fashion.  ;)

The best news ... I am a BARGAIN shopper!!! I never purchase full price, and always search for the best deals before purchasing. It makes getting that special item all the better when you KNOW you got a great price.

My newest purchases ...


Have you seen the MICHE bag???? Oh my gosh, the greatest invention in the WORLD!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my bag. :)

and my brand new gorgeous TOMS shoes. I love love love that they are fashionable, red, and since I purchased them, the company send a pair to a child in need. SWEET!!!!

I don't get to shop to terribly much these days, so when my Hubs lets me splurge, I enjoy it!!!

What is new with all of you!?!?!

Cowboy Wedding

Daisy and Anthony are the perfect cowboy couple!

So, choosing their wedding theme was easy. Something casual, blue, western themed, and incorporated Daisy's love for butterflies!!

I think these invites create the most PERFECT invitations. Wish I could attend all the festivities!

Congratulations, and Best Wishes
Daisy & Anthony!!!
