Do What You Love

It's so simple! And maybe Michaela will stop asking me why I'm so angry all the time.

Run into Flowers :: Blog Love

Ok, so lately, I've been obsessed with this blog called "Run into Flowers." To give you a little background on the subject matter I am about to cover, I remember this one time I came across this blog called "You Love Me & It's Heavenly" and I immediately became addicted to the style and writing of Miss Carlene. If I can recall correctly, I wanted to make the Save the Date nani bird she posted on her blog. She was planning her wedding at the time and since I'm constantly scouring the blogs for everything wedding, poof! I was consumed. So to make a short story even shorter... we finally connected face to face at Patchwork and we've been on Stalkerati Status since then :).

Well... that's how I feel about Raechel.  (Raechel: if you ever read this, I'm harmless, I promise).  I discovered her blog through HI-FI Weddings (another blog obsession, but I just won't go there) and I fell in love with her wedding photos and was super inspired by the invitations and paper goods which were designed by Mayan (her cousin!). Instant connection!

Not only does Raechel have style, but I love her taste in music. If only I can have all the songs on one mix, but girl, I see what you're doing... let's keep it simple and inspire me with a song a day.

I think I already read through her whole blog. This was the funniest sh*$ ever.

I hope I wasn't too much. Here are more pics from her wedding day...

How cute is this slambook? I might have to steal this idea :)

Raechel, you're a girl after my own heart. You love crafting, I love crafting. You love music, I love music. You have a keen fashion sense, I like to think I do. You're a family girl, I am too! I know you already have a best friend and you're super close with your family. I'll take it slow and invite you to my next craft fair and then we can see from there. It might be awkward at first, but I have a feeling we will get passed that after we laugh over this silly blog post. Thank you for your stylish musings and constant inspiration.

See for yourself. She's funny as hell too :)

Happy 1st Birthday Utterly Engaged!

If you're a bride to-be and aren't reading Utterly Engaged, you have to start NOW! I am so in LOVE with the styling and absolute awesomeness of this online magazine. Even though my wedding has gone and passed, I am still looking to UE for infinite inspiration for the brides that I design for now.

I'm so proud of these gals and I can't believe that a year has come and gone. First of all, the celebration took place in Irvine Ranch and it was Hoe-Down style! Everyone that showed up was in their cowboy and cowgirl gear. It was fabulous!

The icing on the cake for me was the BBQ contest. You'll see what I'm talking about once you scroll down and see the pix!
