Happy Halloween {Worst Dressed Couple Award Goes To….}
Yeah. I've never been one of those girls who dresses all sexy for Halloween - I'd rather be something horribly and hideously funny instead (last year I was Antoine Dodson). Pat's birthday is today, and we went out in full costume style on Saturday night - I was "It's Pat" from Saturday Night Live and Pat was  a jersey shore guy; we called him the Fitzuation. Needless to say we weren't the most attractive couple around, but we did get some laughs! Anyone else go out this weekend? Any fun...

A Little Sparkle and Glimmer for Your Friday {Glitter Pumpkin Love}
{image by wine me up} Happy Friday! Oh. My. Goodness am I thankful that Friday decided to show up this week. It was a good week, but wow, it felt long, didn't it? This weekend I'm sure we'll partake in Halloween festivities, as Pat's birthday is Halloween after all so it is his favorite holiday! What are you all doing? Have you carved your pumpkins yet? We need to do that this weekend too, but I am really digging the glitter idea that Casa Sugar put together, it's a pretty way to add some...
Advice: Staying True to Your Vision {No Matter What Others May Say}
Scobey Photography This was originally posted on May 10, but due to recent posts I've seen elsewhere, I feel the need to re-post this today in hopes that I can remind us all of this simple fact. Confession: I have about 10 versions of this post saved in drafts. Let's see if today I can get it right. As in all facets of life, trends will come and go, and this is no different in the wedding world. From ruffled, textured dresses to short reception dresses to the anticipated onslaught of...
Lovely Advice: It’s His Day Too {Let Him Wear the Tie He Wants}
{Burberry} Yep, see that tie up there? That's the tie Pat wanted to wear on our wedding day. I don't think I ever realized he really wanted to, because he never made a big deal out of it, but I also think my wedding-obsessed mind didn't quite hear it. And to this day, I feel horrible about it. See ladies, your wedding isn't all about you. And don't get me wrong - I swear, I didn't think it was all about me. But in this instance, I should have listened instead of just chugging along, and...

Love is…

Love is…
Riding bikes side by side in the sunset... I snagged this picture last night of the sweetest unsuspecting couple, riding together across the beach as bestie and I toasted pink solo cups of Domaine Chandon to our last night at the beach. Today we're soaking up all that our last day of vacation has to offer before boarding our flights back to opposite coasts and saying hello to the real world again tomorrow. Anyone do anything exciting this weekend? See you all back here tomorrow...
Mason Jar Sunday: Memento Jars {Memories in a Jar}
{Martha Stewart, no photog credited come on Martha, credit your photogs!!} I think it's safe to say I have about a million masons lying around... so in the spirit of our girls getaway this weekend, don't you think this memento jar idea is sweet? I just love this idea and might have to put it to use. {young house...
Weekend Agenda: Girls Getaway!
{Isabel Alcala} I'm off (actually, I've been off since Wednesday!), on a much needed girls trip for some fun, sun, and sand with my bestie from home. There's nothing in the world that can take the place of your best girlfriends, and even though the miles may separate us, we always make time to see each other and enjoy each other's company. While Pat does dude things up in SF, Christine and I will be knocking the following off of our to-do list (in no particular order): *shell seeking *wine...
Pop Up Taffy Bar: A Fun Surprise for Wedding Guests {LLD Wedding Teaser}
If you follow LLD on Facebook you may have seen this picture already (iPhone pic, sorry!) - it's a little teaser from K&D's wedding last weekend where we surprised guests with a salt water taffy bar! It was such a fun tribute to the bride & groom's favorite summer vacation spot - Cape Cod - and don't you think the large and small circle confetti made it just that much more of a celebration? For those who have been asking, the font I used is called "Lobster" (it seemed like the perfect...
