Wedding Wednesday: Martha's Vineyard Wedding

This weekend we are off to Martha's Vineyard to celebrate one of college besties wedding! I am so excited to be travelling to the Vineyard for my first time and for my Alpha Phi Sorority Sister {I had to do a little college love shout out!} that is getting married this weekend. Wow, I feel like yesterday the two of us were sitting on the steps of our sorority house talking about crushes on guys and this weekend she is walking down the aisle. Where does time go?

Anyways....while browsing around online I stumbled upon this sweet intimate wedding in the Vineyard that was feature on 100 Layer Cake at the beginning of the year, I had to share!

The cute direction signs with the life savor added is adorable.

What an amazing photo of the newlyweds with the water in the background!

The little details of the wedding for a group of 36 of their favorite people are lovely. Striped straws and pie for their "cake" always make me happy!
The couple had sweatshirts made for guests to wear on the chilly Summer Vineyard evenings.

A lobster bake! That sounds like an amazing reception menu to me. And how cute is the couple with their bibs on.
I can't wait to post pics from my trip and the beautiful bride Emily:)

Boo the Dog ...on TOUR!

Need a little something to brighten you morning? Are you familiar with Boo, the Worlds Cutest Dog, I'm in love. How funny and cute is this little puppy! He has over a million Facebook fans, wow! Boo is so popular that he wrote a book and is now out on tour for, "Boo, The Life of the World's Cutest Dog", good title right! He is well, again, pretty cute!

Last week the famous puppy was in the Big Apple during fashion week and even famous fashion designer Tory Burch took some time out to meet with Boo.

I saw this book last week in DC and contemplated getting one to provide me a smile and a laugh during the day.

Oh my, toooo cute! Check out his adorable interview on Oh Joy last week!

And if you are interested in Boo's average day at the office, check out the video by Chronicle Books . No wonder this little guy is exhausted, he is quite the popular puppy!

I hope Boo makes you smile as much as he makes me laugh! And yes....he is a real dog!

A little Monday Mix!

After a week long birthday celebration I am back to reality and 30! Wow! I had a wonderful weekend but am feeling a bit exhausted and need a little pep in my step added! Maybe a long run tonight after work, a hard workout! Well, that calls for some new tunes on my ipad. Here are some songs I will be listening to along the way, I hope they add a little mix to your Monday as well!

A Nice Note

I have always loved writing and receiving a nice hand written note. We live in the world of emails and tweets and texts, so when you get a hand written note in the mail, it is a treat! As I think I may have shared multiple times in the past, I LOVE nice stationary. Recently I have seen so many beautiful cards that I have to close my computer to stop from pushing the confirm purchase button. When I was in DC this weekend I of course made a stop in the amazing Paper Source but was sad not to make it to the adorable new paper goods store in Old Town Alexandria, VA, Fifteen Eleven. Hopefully next time! It looks lovely!

I have a lot of letter writing and thank you cards to write next week and I would love to send them on all of these adorable notes. Here are some new beautiful cards I have found.

Bow Cards from Simple Song are precious. I think I could make these my personalized stationary with a pink pen.

Say HELLO with Ballet Flat Cards, adorable.

Rifle Paper Co., sigh, I love everything they create! I think this adorable note pad could find a good home next to my desk.

Aren't these black and gold cards so chic and cute!

I feel like these are a perfect card for me to write from Florida from Kate Spade! Maybe it should say, Hello from Sunshine!

Want to be my pen pal? I would love a nice little note:)

10 years ago

I remember where I was on ten years ago this morning, September 11, 2001. I was a Junior at Syracuse University leaving an early 8:30am class. I can remember walking through campus after class and it was eery and quite. As I walked up to my sorority house and saw a few girls looking stressed trying to reach people on their cellphones and then entered the house to see everybody watching the awful news of what happened on tv I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I remember attending a vigil at church the next evening and it was sad. We were only college students but we had never dealt with any major war or incident as what had happened that morning.

I think we all remember where we were that morning. Even though I didn't nobody who passed away that day I remember hearing the stories of people at school, a school that had so many students from the Manhattan area and how they had been affected. I remember going to study abroad the next semester in London and having such a strong feeling of American pride and as well, being a little nervous of showing our American pride. Things really changed that day in the world, it was scary, lots was unknown.

Today I said a little prayer in hope that our world will be more peaceful. That my children won't have to live through something like this ever ever ever. Say a little prayer, take a minute, think of all those who were affected by that quite morning on September 11, 2011.

Happy Weekend!

Hello Weekend!
{photo by Mike Larson Photographers}

Wow, I saw this AMAZING photo shoot on Style Me Pretty this week and was completely in awe. I kind of want to jump through the computer screen and have dinner at this gorgeous table. With my big 30th birthday creeping up on me in less then two weeks I dream of having dinner at a table like this some day for a big birthday soiree! If not this year, well maybe in years to come. A girl can dream! Here's what I have been browsing around this week. Hope you have a little time to sip a glass of vino and enjoy a little blog time this weekend.

I am SO excited that I signed up for the Decor8 Blogging Your Way class! Anybody want to join me?

Did you see Camille's photos from her trip to Napa? sigh. Beau, if you are reading this, can we take a trip there together...some day...prefer sooner rather then later;)

I love this new Making it Fabulous series! I can't wait to see more!

I love shoes. I love candy. Today I am off with a girlfriend to purchase some Happy Birthday to Me fancy shoes! Thank you Emily for the awesome candy and shoes post! Loved the images!

These would be so cute in a room.

Check out this contest on! Show them your pretty face:)

Hey Florida Girls ~ Fashion's Night Out!

Ok, do not be confused, I know the picture above says the event is in NYC, and it is, but it is also in...Florida! yay! Fashion's Night Out is happening for the third year in a row and what started only in Manhattan has spread out across the country. A one night, after hours shopping event where stores host events, have special designs, cocktails, music, special guests, all sorts of fun and the great thing is that most of your shopping has a percentage that is donated to the stores charity. What better way to spend a Thursday evening with girlfriends! Below is a list of a few events happening in the South Florida. I think I might be heading to fancy Bal Harbor, hope to see you there!

Bal Harbor FNO Events - 7pm to 10pm

Worth Avenue - 6pm to 8pm

Aventura Mall - 6:30pm to 9:30pm

Happy Shopping! xoxo~ Becca

Wishing I was HERE

After coming off a long three day weekend of relaxing, going to the movies, laying in the sun, reading is going to be a hard day to get back into the swing of things. I saw this photo on Pinterest from a fabulous post on Grey Likes Weddings and thought, "Oh, can't I be here!". Hoping you had a wonderful weekend and are relaxed and refreshed and full of fun ideas for a week ahead!
{photo from Troy Grover}

Below are a few posts that I read over the weekend and just loved....

A Kate Spade store opened in London! Oh can I please get a job there? Look at the fun party!

Did you see the beautiful secret garden like engagement the Jessica Lorren shot?

I would love this necklace for my birthday, sigh.

OOo I loved reading through the new Martha Weddings this weekends, thanks for the sneak peek.

Am I too old to have an Eloise 30th birthday themed party, because this one is awesome!

I didn't get to make these this weekend, but MUST add homemade pop tarts to must bake soon list!

Beau and I are doing a one week veggie, no cocktails, no dairy, lean mean eating machine diet. We have so many festivities coming up in the next three weeks that we need a little break. I think I may need to make this recipe!

Happy Tuesday! xoxo~Becca
