Blush and Bashful...

Ok, so our colors won't be pink and pink, but who doesn't love that movie? I actually love the color pink {you have to when you have a little girl}, but I can't do that to my sweet husband. He did rock a pink dress shirt for my baby shower {all of our friends wore pink} and I think that's asking enough for one lifetime. He looked so cute, btw.

Anyway, with pink, peach and purple and pretty much everything else out of the picture for various reasons, we found navy, lime/apple green and white. It only took like two years to pick this. This color palette is very us for many reasons though, so I'm happy in the end. I get to use two of my favorite flowers, green hydrangeas and bells of Ireland. Very excited to have green flowers. They make me happy!

And just to prove we have very good taste by picking this combo, here are two inspiration boards from one of my favorite blogs ever. If Kathryn does it, you know it must be cool.

What do you think?

Mark my words...

I will have this arrangement at the rewedding. I love how the bells of Ireland are all wild and twisty.

A clue to our venue...

Here is a small clue about our venue. This photo was shot there and the arch is by the florist I hope to use.

Oh Vera...

Just when I had made up my mind...

Long White Dress...

Our trip was wonderful. The weather and water were both perfect and the only problem was that we had to come home! Living with extended family for a week is always interesting, but I made it out alive. Only one minor freak out and I kept it behind closed doors. Apparently I have a beach baby on my hands. She LOVES the ocean and water in general. We all stayed burn free too! A miracle, I tell you. We must have used 5 things of sunscreen though.

Other big news! We made a big decision while we were there...We're now 100% sure on the date and the venue for the rewedding. Yay! We haven't signed a contact yet, so I'll share more details after we do. Though it's not really hard to guess where. :) Let's just say that this dress would be perfect...

5 from the Files #5...





{check out the whole wedding weekend here. Amazing.}

My dream job...

Style Me Pretty is looking for a creative intern. I would LOVE to do that job and would be very good at it, I think. Why oh why do I live in Alabama though? Even though it's a blog, Abby is looking for somebody in the Boston area to fill the position. I guess I understand why, but I would travel. I can jump on a plane to Boston anytime. Would it be wrong of me to hope that nobody in Boston wants it{yeah right!}? I've already offered to work cheap, free or pay her. Sounds like a good deal to me, but some people are picky! :)

Oh well, I should probably give up, but if anybody wants to send her this post and beg on my behalf, I'll send you a treat. Or I guess somebody apply for the job that can actually get it. It sounds so great!

The white dress...

I know I went on and on about this dress, but I can't help but think about this dress. It's so me. Easy to wear and it actually looks comfy! I have always adored Lela Rose, as you know if you read this blog, so it's not shocking that this is from her latest collection. I can't help butthink...what's a vow renewal without a beautiful white dress?

Have a great 4th...

I know I said I'd be back in July, but what's a couple of more days? Thanks to some sweet talking by yours truly, I'm headed here with my favorite two people for a looong weekend. Hope you have as much fun as we're going to! Happy 4th of July! If I wasn't going away, I would have made these...
