lover.ly {wedding inspiration}

8 May
I know I got married almost a year ago {holy cow. I cannot believe it has been almost a year already} but I am still slightly obsessed with wedding things. I cannot help it. Weddings are just so gorgeous and I love all the wonderful personal touches and beauty.
I got an email introducing me to a website called lover.ly. It is amazing. It is like pinterest but completely wedding related. Oh man. When I told Dan about it he was like goodbye to my wife….hahaha.

There are such beautiful pictures right on the homepage. All of the pictures come from wedding blogs and editors. You can search by term or by color. So you can find things that are your wedding colors. You can also search different categories.
You can love a picture by clicking on the heart or you can bundle images, which is basically putting all the pictures for a particular category all together, like a board on pinterest.
I wish I had found this before I got married, along with pinterest. However, it is probably better that they weren’t because I would’ve had even more ideas then I did anyway. Maybe it will help me when we renew our vows at some point because I know we will so I can plan another party.

I saw this video on my friend’s blog, Pretty Things and Potty Mouths, and just had to share it. I had kind of a crappy day at work and this totally just made my day. It is so amazing and this boy is so cute. I wish I could go visit his arcade. Love. 
Please click on the link below to check out the video. You will love it. And a warning…it might make you a little teary.

nothing you love is lost

2 Mar

Nothing you love is lost. Not really. Things, people–they always go away sooner or later. You can’t hold them anymore than you can hold moonlight. But if they’ve touched you, if they’re inside you, then they’re still yours. The only things you ever really have are the ones you hold inside your heart. ~ Bruce Coville

friday five {what i’m loving this week}

13 Jan

So I find so many things I love each week, via Pinterest or other blogs and websites. I thought I would start sharing 5 of my favorite things from each week. Friday seemed like a fitting day to do this post because it ends the week. So, from now on, I will be posting 5 of my favorite things every week on Friday.

My hair is getting a little longer and I have been thinking that I should probably start trying to do different things with it. I tend to just leave it down or throw it up in a ponytail because whenever I do attempt something cute, it doesn’t usually work out. I need to start practicing and I’m sure I can get some things to work. I came across this adorable hair do that I absolutely love {found here}. And I’m pretty sure I could pull it off….I just need to find a super cute head band like this one.

I am not pregnant and we are not planning on getting pregnant for a little while but I came across this pregnancy announcement {found here} on Pinterest and I think it is so cute! The other pictures are really cute too, I just really love the bump ahead sign. So smart.

I also found this next idea on Pinterest. I absolutely cannot wait to try this. It is genius and I wish I had thought of it. Making your own stamps with erasers?? So simple and so cheap. And you could make basically anything at all. I’m buying erasers next time I’m at the store. {found here}

I don’t have a bookshelf I need to makeover right now but I know someday I will. And I think this idea is brilliant. Using foam board in the back of the bookshelf instead of painting the actual bookshelf {found here}. It would make it so much easier to see if you really like it and to change when you feel like it. My mom has bookshelves that she is going to be painting soon and I shared this idea with her. We’ll see if she uses it….

This is a super cute gift idea. Making little hearts and hiding them around for the person to find {found here}. So sweet. And really, you could do any kind of shape depending on the holiday or event that is going on. I might just have to do this for someone….

I have to get crackin’ on all these DIY ideas I want to do. And practicing with my hair. Good thing I have some time coming up.
