Waving Flags on Wedding Cakes

How cute!!! Those little waving flags are so festive! Do you think they'd look cute on cupcakes too!? Oh, I'm in love. Maybe I can get my bridesmaids to help me make some for my wedding...what do you think ladies? :)

Antique Bar Cart

I think these bar carts are so cool and retro! It's a good way to add style, elegance, and a bar to your home while taking up very little space. My only concern is dusting all the bottles. (I live in the country and it's harvest season and dust is everywhere right now!) However, I could always have a drink while dusting them! :)

Have A Happy Weekend

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. I am going to visit family, yet again! Three weekends in a row of family but different people every time. :) It's been great and I know this weekend will be too. Also, it's going to be in the 90's this weekend at home and cooler where I'm headed so that's always good. What do you have planned?

I'm very seriously considering getting bangs...and not just the little side bangs I've had before. I mean some serious bangs. Big swoopy ones.
What do you guys think?

Dreaming of the World

I need some travel in my life!!! My cousin is currently in Greece and has been touring Europe for almost a month now. I'm extremely jealous but very happy she is out exploring. I love to travel and every once in a while, home seems unbearable and I need something different and exotic. Good thing I have a honeymoon coming up! In eight months I will be a citizen of the world once again. Until then, I must indulge in only photographs to ease my longings. These pictures are all from a great Tumblr blog called Travel Inspirations. Enjoy!

Lovely Additions

Details. There are about a million details involved when planning a wedding! I didn't even know about half of them before I got engaged but if they can be as pretty and elegant as these accessories than I won't mind planning them into my wedding. :)

I need to pick out some new glasses soon. My vision prescription has changed and the old ones aren't cuttin' it anymore. I like these retro specs. I think my favorites are the top left...what do you think?

Let's Take the Horses!

A friend of mine, John, always called bikes horses and skateboards donkeys. When I saw this I instantly thought of him and all my lovely days living by the beach in San Diego. This one's for you John.

On our way back down the hill, we stopped in Jamestown to walk around and enjoy the sunshine and nice weather. We found some great stuff at the antique shops they have there. We also got some ice cream and Dr. Pepper at the little burger joint right off the highway. If you've never been to the small towns in the Sierra Nevada mountains, I would highly recommend it. It's just lovely up there!

Where Your Heart Is

Here is a sneek peek into the beautiful home of Kathrin from her blog Where Your Heart Is. I love the color palate and all the whimsical florals prints. It's a perfect mix of clean white and pops of color.

Flowers and Florists

Yesterday my mom, Spencer, and I had a meeting with our florist for the wedding to talk about bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages for the wedding party, parents, and grandparents. I had so much fun looking through pages and pages of different flowers and color combinations while surrounded by all the lovely greenery in the shop. One thing that I hadn't thought about much and am now obsessed with is boutonniers. Of course, I always knew the men would be wearing them but I just hadn't thought about what flowers to use! Needless to say, I will now be on a flower hunt for the perfect boutonnieres, sans roses, which I think are played out. Let me know if you have any creative suggetions!!
