Bridesmaid Gift Giving

Many of you know I got married in November of last year (seems like it was just yesterday). What you maybe don't know is that I had 11 bridesmaids...enter "shocked" face here. Yes, 11! I have been blessed in my life to acquire the best of friends over every stage of my life, and three wonderful sister in laws, and I couldn't imagine not having any of them standing next to me on my big day!

DIY: Spring Wreath

I surprised my grandma on Sunday with supplies to make this spring wreath. My Aunt had told me she was looking to change her wreath, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with my wonderful grandma, and show you guys a little DIY.

My Wedding Table Design

I thought it only fitting that my first real post on my new blog be about my wedding. Not only is it the biggest event that just happened in my life, it is something I worked hard at for 9 months, but realistically planned my whole life! Over the next few months, I thought I would feature different key elements of the wedding and wedding process. Today, I thought I would focus on one element, the reception table design. In planning my wedding, I definitely knew there were areas I wanted to splurge on and others that I knew we could do at a reasonable price, and the tables were no exception. Below is a listing of all the main items that made up the beautiful tables (pictured above) at our wedding.

I started a blog!...Finally!

First off, if you are reading this, that means you actually visited my blog site! Thank you! I wanted to have my first blog post tell you why I decided to start a blog. First off, let me start by telling you what I do for a living; I am an Accountant. While most wouldn't describe my job to be artistic or even remotely exciting, it has provided a stable and good living for me thus far. And as much as I hate to admit it, I actually really love numbers! However, with that being said, I also love to shop, create, and pretty much do anything design related. Since my job doesn't offer the other side of things I love doing, I thought I would create a blog that combines both of my passions. While most people wouldn't say that accounting and all those other things go together, I would beg to differ.
