Happy Saturday

We have finally had a break in bad weather so my brother and SIL were able to get out with the baby. I just love Carsyn Time! She is so precious....I can't wait to spoil her rotten! Unfortunately, I forgot my camera today so I don't have any pictures. She was so cute in her UK attire.

I also want to wish my MIL & FIL a very Happy 40th Anniversary.

Their marriage is such a wonderful example of how two people should enjoy one another. I hope to someday celebrate 40 happy years with my husband and still be able to call him my best friend.

I absolutely LOVE weddings. At one time, I actually thought about becoming a wedding planner. Unfortunately, in Eastern Kentucky, healthcare is more lucrative than the wedding planning business.....and after watching a few episodes of Bridezillas, I am not sure I could handle the job anyway. Right now, I am reading Vision in White by Nora Roberts (The Bride Quartet-Book 1).

The books are about a group of life long friends who start a wedding planning business. I just love this book and can't wait to start on the next three.

I am completely obsessed with the wedding details for Kate Middleton and Prince William. I am dying to see what type of dress she chooses.

My favorite part of Sundays is watching My Fair Wedding with David Tutera. I love this show! He is so amazingly creative.....I cry every time he reveals the reception site to the couple. He really gives each bride a fairytale day. I also love watching Say Yes to the Dress. I am actually watching it right now while I am snowed in...AGAIN! The dress is always what I look forward to seeing most at weddings. I also love seeing beautiful, fresh flowers. While bundled up on the couch today, I have been looking at gorgeous dresses at . I have posted a few of my favorite pics below...all photos can be found at

I could go on for days about the beauty of Jim Hjelm gowns. They are so classy and
sophisticated, yet simple and elegant.

St. Pucchi
I love the drama of St. Pucchi gowns. A bride will never go unnoticed while wearing St. Pucchi.

Stephen Yearick
The ultimate fairytale gown!

I have also posted some pics of my favorite flower combinations. Words cannot express how much I love fresh flowers. There is nothing more beautiful and romantic than a bride surrounded by fresh blooms. These pictures can all be found at 

I have just loved looking at new wedding trends. It makes me miss my own wedding of the happiest days of my life.

Strange Addictions


I classify my obsession with the Jersey Shore as a very strange addiction. I am actually embarassed to tell the people at work how much I truly love the show. I just can't help myself!

If you ask my husband what he hates the most about me, he will always tell you how my obsession with the snooze button irritates the life out of him. My alarm clock is very loud because nothing less than a train horn can wake me from my sleep. I set the alarm for at least 1 hour before I have to get up, then proceed to repeatedly hit the snooze button until I actually HAVE to get up. Every morning, Robby screams, "If you hit the snooze one more time, then I am going to throw your alarm clock against the wall. Get out of the ----- bed!" That's how we start everyday!

Grateful for Monday

Today, I am most grateful for.....LAUGHTER.

I always dread Mondays at work, but I am so grateful for my crazy co-workers. I have laughed so hard today. I just love the people I work with. I really don't know how I would get through Mondays without them. Do you ever notice people who never smile or laugh? How do they survive this world?

Is anyone watching The Bachelor? After week 2, my favorites are Emily, Jackie, and Britt. Do you have a favorite?

Sunday....Please Don't End!

Today has been a long, lazy day...but I wish it could last forever as I know what comes tomorrow.......MONDAY. I am very grateful to have a job and work with people I truly love, but I always dread starting the week. I often wonder if SAHMs realize their tremendous good fortune. You are the only women in the world I envy.
