Wedding Fever!!!

So here's the thing.  I now have "Wedding Fever" thanks to my friend Tonya.  She is a party planner in Alabama and she's been asked to plan a family member's wedding.  We've been talking about it and it has officially sent me to that crazy place I go when I get something in my head and can't let go of it.  Biggest problem I see with this?  No one has hired me (yet!) to plan their special day. :-(  Hmmm, how to fix this?  I'm working on it.  In the meantime, I asked the Handy Dandy Hubby if we could get remarried (after assuring him that I meant remarried to each other) he still said no. :-/  Wonder why he would have done that?  Could it be because we only got married 2 years ago?  Not exactly time to renew our vows.  Another reason might be that I tend to go a little crazy when planning weddings (I've planned several for family members).  I absolutely LOVE weddings.  Seriously, do you get that I LOVE them?  Ok, good. 
So here's what I'm thinking.  A lot of you probably don't follow me on Pinterest (shame on you) so I think I'm going to share some ideas that I've found on there with you guys over here on the blog.  How does that sound?  Good?  Great!
The first thing I want to share with you is this beautiful Coral Country Wedding board I have.  I've created it with the idea of mixing coral, mint and a gorgeous antique gold, but there are also lots of country aspects to this board that you could use with almost any color scheme.  Burlap and lace would go beautifully with the country elements as well.
Speaking of burlap and lace.  I am OBSESSED!!!  If my hubby ever decides to let me plan a vow renewal (not that he has much choice) this is what the theme will be.  Can you say gorgeous?!!?  Here is my Burlap and Lace board with some ideas on how you can incorporate these details into your special day.  I had to post a picture of this!  How gorgeous is this bouquet from Gypsy Farm Girl's Etsy shop?!  Be sure you check out her shop, she has some beautiful bouquets!
So, what do you think?  Do you have a wedding theme, color scheme, etc. that you would like to see inspiration for on the blog?  If so, leave me a comment and let me know.  I would LOVE to put together some ideas for you!  Not sure what you want?  Let's talk and I'll help you figure it out.  Hope you enjoyed this little peek into the Wedding Fever moment I'm having. Don't forget to check my Pinterest boards often as I am always updating them.  Have a wonderful weekend!
See ya next time!

New blog series... I think

So, I'm trying out a new blog series.  Not sure if it's going to work out or not as I have a tendency to tire of things quickly, but we're going to give it a try.  Ok?  Ok.
This idea started when I saw the fabulous Miss Party Mom's new series, Five for Friday.  If you've never checked out her blog, you're missing out!  That chick is a riot!  She's blunt and to the point and I think she's awesome.  Go check her out!
Anyways, here's what I'm thinking.  Every week, probably on Saturday, I'm going to post six things that I'm digging right now or that I'm wanting to try out.  I'll have 6 different categories.  For the Home, Party Inspiration (of course), Recipes/Food (yes, this from the girl who doesn't cook, I'm broadening my horizons folks), Just Us Girls (something special just for me) and then, here's where it gets a little crazy.  I am going to have a category for teen girls and my daughter Wylee, is going to give her input.  I am also going to have a category for boys where my son Levi, will give his thoughts.
So, what do you think?  Are you ready to see some epic fails with the Recipe category?  Because, trust me, there will be some.  What do you think I should call this series?  I've been rolling around some names, but nothing makes me jump for joy.  A Few of My Favorite Things, Saturday Super Six, blah and blah.  Help!!!  If you have an awesome idea for a name, leave me a comment below!  Or, if you have a product, recipe, etc. you think I should check out, feel free to email me or comment with the name of it.  I'm planning on starting this series within the next couple of weeks, so let me know what you think!
