My hubby and I have been married for three years today. I can't believe how fast the time has gone since we were in my home town of Northfield, Minnesota, welcoming all our family and friends from near and far. Right now we were hoping the rain would hold off, pondering whether we ordered too many cases of beer, and rushing to the mall to pick up Ian's second wedding suit after he left his on the airport bus at LAX (whoopsy daisy). Those moments - the small ones just as much as the big ones - were filled with so much excitement and emotion and we love to relive them each year. It was the best day of our lives, and even then we had no idea just how well we fit together.

Something to Behold

It's something we've all thought about but never dreamed it would really happen. Well, it did. Anthropologie has graced the girly world with a wedding line, and let me just say that we are glad they did. BHLDN (pronounced "beholden") carries everything you love about Anthro - unique, worldly, feminine pieces that allow you to take a whimsical style idea and run with it to a faraway dreamland. I love how nothing feels repetitive or redundant - even the party/bridesmaids dresses each have their very own identity and look like they came from the best Anthro archives. We especially love the accessories - obsession worthy for every bride and non-bride. The glovesundergarments, and hair accessories have all made the wish list. You'll even find some exclusive shoe clips and hair treats!

Lazy Monday: Win a Pair of Plum Pretty Sugar Lounge Pants!

When I was getting married 2 summers ago, part of my massive list of priorities was to find the perfect robe to get ready in. I was thrilled when I came across the most gorgeous turquoise silk number by Plum Pretty Sugar. It was the best non-bridal yet special piece to prance around the house in while I got ready. This past week, the lovely robes were featured on Style Me Pretty, worn by a gaggle of lovely bridesmaids (that whole wedding has me drooling - the color palette, the bride's gown! Gah!).
