Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been wanting to do Valentine themed engagement photos for quite some time, since Valentine's Day is also our anniversary!! I had planned to wear a tutu and layer up some pearls with a giant heart balloon. Unfortunately it rained on the day we had scheduled; but that didn't stop me from wearing my outfit for some photos around our condo this morning!

Tutu is from PeaceLoveTulle on etsy (coming soon!)

We plan to celebrate tonight at home with a little bubbly, chocolate strawberries and a filet mignon. Sounds about perfect to me! Continuing the celebration, we also have reservations next week at our favorite restaurant for a 7 course dinner!

What are your plans?! XOXO

Match My Monogram

I was recently contacted by Match My Monogram, to spread the word about their brand new online marketplace created to solve the problem of what to do with mint condition monogrammed items that for one reason or another are no longer in use!
I can see how Match My Monogram will come in handy for me once my monogram officially changes and I need to get rid of some of my old monogrammed items! They also have lots of clothes for kiddos that have been outgrown.  
How adorable is this little girls dress??!!
Found here

MMM takes the burden off of the consignor by finding that person out there with the same name who loves your personalized style. I hope you all check it out as it is a great resource for all you monogram lovers out there!


Wedding Wednesday- Our Engagement Party

Our engagement party was back in November, but I wanted to share all the lovely pictures with you! We had over 50 guests on a warm evening in CWF's parents backyard!
 We had such a blast and are so thankful for our wonderful friends and family who made this day extra special for us! Now we are looking forward to the wedding!
I felt this party wasn't complete without a Geronimo balloon and matching tassels! CWF took great joy in popping it after the party :)

With my MOH, my cousin Christine.
Part of the dessert table set up.. The color scheme for the party was navy, turquoise and silver!
The dessert table was my favorite! (because I love desserts!) We had Kara's Cupcakes,

tiramisu cups,

 several cheesecakes from the cheesecake factory,

..vanilla macaroons, lemon and almond cake! People were going crazy and thankfully everything was eaten up!
Outside we had a wine tasting area set up. Guests provided a rating on 6 different wines that we will potentially serve at our wedding!

I feel in love with these monogrammed embossed cocktail napkins!

 A few of my friends! That balloon really came in handy!

I wish I had gotten more pictures, but what they say is true, I was constantly talking to everyone and didn't even have a chance to actually sit down and eat anything! But I hear the prime rib & salmon CWF's dad cooked up & the dishes my mom and family brought were delicious!!
For the favor, we had little bags of funfetti popcorn!!
