You're The Inspiration

One of my favorite wedding blogs is Snippet & Ink. I have been a follower of this blog for quite a while now. Long before I heard any wedding bells. I adore the inspiration boards the author puts together.
So much beauty in a little square makes me happy, squared.

I'm Getting MARRIED!!!!!

I am so excited! My fiance is amazing and I can't wait to spend eternity with him. His only down-fall is that he thinks I spend too much time on blogs. Silly boy:) I tell him that blogs keep me happy and my design side satisfied. Otherwise I'd have to find a new hobby like real shopping instead of just online window shopping.  So in honor of my upcoming festivities I will be doing a few more posts about weddings. I'll try to keep it light but have you seen the beautiful wedding blogs out there?! Too many and too little time!
Here are some of my favorite inspirations....

Blue Starlet
I'm so in love with this dress! It's a little bit too low-cut for me but the lace on top is divine.
Can't wait to plan the wedding of my dreams.
If you have any favorite wedding blogs, please send them my way.

This scene makes me want to watch a Jane Austen flick.
 I picture myself lying on the lap of a dapper gentleman, reading poetry aloud, and eating biscuits.

I love the oriental rugs and the abundance of pillows.
So comfy!

Happy weekending!

Slip Slidin' Away

There is a toy store in Salt Lake City we used to visit. It was in the basement of the shopping center and to get inside you could either use the boring ol' stairs or the awesome, super fast slide. We always opted for the slide. Too bad my house is only one level.
yes i want a slide in my house! reminds me of this post

I will have one of these in my future house. It will go great with my future ball pit in my house.

Perfect Rooms

Just when I thought I'd seen all the prettiest rooms, I'm proven wrong. Rooms like these are brought to my
attention and I'm blown away by their beauty all over again. And happily.
My love of a gawdy chandelier over a rustic table continues. And deepens.
And aren't those Barcelona Chairs yummy? It's a dream of mine to have one. Some day.....

Happy Valentine's Day!

This morning I woke up to a hand-written card from my honey with 3 sweet chocolates in the shape of a smiley face. It was the best Valentine's gift I've received in a long time.
Cute card found on this beautiful new-to-me blog

I hope you all have a wonderful, love-filled Valentine's Day!
Hugs & Kisses!!!

My Favorite LOVE Movies

With Valentine's Day just around the heart-shaped corner, I like to load up on mushy, gushy, lovey, dovey films. Here are my top 5...
(In no particular order)
or watch the more recent version...
Still good, but the original has better dresses.
I have no idea how many times I've seen this movie. I quit counting a long time ago.
Love the tag line! It is beyond amazing.
This will always be my favorite version. But I like to interchange the characters from this version and the newer one, with Keira Knightley, when I'm reading the book.
Colin Firth will always be the perfect Mr. Darcy!
We just watched this the other night. I think I love this movie because of the house. I really want to live there.

So there is my love list. What is in your top 5?

Some Valentine Ideas For Clueless Men

Jewelry for Valentine's Day is never a bad choice. Flowers die, chocolate goes straight to the hips, and a card gets thrown away.
But jewelry gets worn and loved.
