Hey y'all and Happy Monday...well as "happy" as Monday can be. 

Today I'm linking up with Biana over at blovedboston to share the highlights from my weekend so make sure to hop over to her blog to link up and enter her giveaway for some gorge Kendra Scott earrings! Now onto my weekend...

I absolutely LOVEEE arranging flowers myself, so much that I'm even doing my own wedding flowers, and I wanted to play around with some seeded eucalyptus since I had never used it. So on Friday my sweet fiance Brian called around to some local florists and found a shop that had some. He came home with seeded eucalyptus, hydrangeas, and baby's breath for me to experiment with. I stopped by Kroger for some pink spray roses and the only ones they had were these "on their last leg" reduced price ones but I got them anyway and here's how my arrangement turned out...

Saturday was our date night where we went to dinner and then went in search of some new luggage for our honeymoon. My mom's best friend was very generous and purchased all the luggage credits on our Honeyfund for my bridal shower gift so we've been itching to find some. We were browsing through Marshalls looking for vases and Brian found the most perfectly "me" suitcase. 

It's Diane von Furstenberg and is absolutely perfect. Before we bought it I quickly looked up some reviews on her luggage and they were great so with it being a steal at right under $100 we got it!

Since Brian is a golf coach at Oxford College of Emory University, he always has opportunities to help out with cool sporting events. On Sunday we were the pace cars for some cycling races. He had worked the race events on Thursday and Friday too and was excited for me to take part on Sunday. I paced two races, my first being for the juniors which were kids 13 years old and under. They were beasts and so inspiring! Here they all are after their finish...

Well I hope you all have a great week and I'll see you in a couple of days for my next installment of Wedding Wednesday...this week's topic is about my bridal party!




  1. That bouquet you created is gorgeous - your so talented! Exciting that you're doing your own wedding arrangements!

    1. Thank you so much Christina! I did the alter and reception flowers for my friend's wedding in April and she had twice as many tables as I'll have so I know I can handle it :)

  2. That flower arrangement is gorgeous!
