Wedding Thursday & What I will miss most about Maine:

Hey y'all!
Well I fly out to SC on Monday which is a rather exciting thing, Curtis is really excited to see me. I know I am so excited! I have already made dinner plans and all when I get back to the south. I am just nervous as always when it comes to flying. But don't we all? I think it is rather normal. I just gotta not think so much. Which I do and tends to get me into trouble. I just gotta make sure I pack some good books and magazines. Also charge my iPad and iPod. Or I will get really bored because I can't sleep on the plane. To many beeps and noise going on in the cabin. But I am planning on doing a travel by plane post this weekend. I am wanting to explain tips on packing and what to pack in your carry on and so on.

-Ok so part of this post is on what I will miss most about Maine and maybe a few I won't miss... like snow :P
 There are a lot of things I am going to miss about this lovely little town of Caribou. Lots of things you can't get or see back at home.
 The very first thing I know I am going to miss is my Mom. She is my best friend and I don't get to see her again in till this summer. We have spent the last 6 months together. I know I can be a bitch and I am very hard to live with. But we still love each other and she will always be my Mom.
This photo was taken while it was snowing. We were goofing off. it was a blast!

-2nd thing will have to be little Florence! I am so going to miss her. I won't be able to get back in till this summer when Curtis and I come back up to pick up my wedding dress. Florence is one crazy kitty. She love to run and find things. Oh and she attacks my loufa you know the thing you bathe with in the tub. Yes she torn it up and now she carries it around with her.

This is her favorite spot to sleep when I am on the laptop or reading. 

 -3rd thing will be my Little Brother, he might not be the social type but he is still my little brother. He is one smart kid and he is going to be something big one day.
-4th I am going to miss my new friends that I have made up here. We have done a lot this past short 6 months I have been here. And I can't wait till this summer to see them all again :) And I think I will always remember our crazy talks in Bangor, we are just a bunch of crazy girls!
Sherri, barb, Lisa, me
Lisa, Me, Barb, Sherri

-5th I am going to miss Reno's. Reno's is an awesome little restaurant here in Caribou. They serve the most amazing Haddock Sandwich and homemade pizza. They even have pretty good country fried stake too. Which I am thinking of going vegetarian btw. I also decided if my food looks like "strawberry icecream" before it get to me. It is not going into my body. But thats another post...
There are many other things I am going to miss about Caribou like Tim Horton's yummm They have amazing coffee. But I don't want to bore you all with every single one of those things. But if you are every in Caribou Reno's you must visit it :)

The thing I am not going to miss is the snow!!!! Yes, I am not going to miss it.

So are you ready for Wedding Thursday Post? 

Well I don't think I have told y'all yet but I have found and order my wedding gown! It is so so very exciting. It is the perfect dress and I can't wait till Sept to put it on and walk down the aisle in. Curtis is going to love or so I hope so. The gown is very romantic and it somewhat reminds me of Belle's yellow dress in Beauty in the Beast. I am not going to post a  photo of the dress because Curtis might see it. But I will tell you who makes it. Maggie Sottero.

Also I am trying to figure out what to do for a bridesmaid dress. I am loving the Alfred Angelo Disney Maids gowns. They are too beautiful.
 This is my favorite, I just wished it was longer, so my challenge is to find this dress but long. So what do y'all think of it? Aint it romantic?

Well I am going to go. I have wrote a pretty long post for today and I don't want to bore anyone. :P I hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Spring & Summer Decor Ideas

Hey y'all!
So you all know that in a few days (5) I be heading back home to the good ole south. So with that said I am wanting to vamp up the house a bit, get it ready for Spring and Summer. I know it has to be looking rather manly with me being gone 6 months now. Curtis is not the let's make the house pretty and smell good kind of guy. So I know I am going to be doing some major Spring cleaning. I am wanting to add color to my Living Room and add some throw pillows to the sofa to start off with and add some pretty spring things to the mantel. SO I got on Pinterest and started to look for some ideas... here are some:

 I have been wanting some different types of Cactus in my house because for one they are almost impossible to kill. And they are a very lovely pop of color.
 I am hoping to paint the wall that connects the living room with the dinning room this color and I love the black chevron pillow too with that color. My sofa is about that color too.

 I love the saying.

 I am going to have to find some wall space to do this with, I love this idea!

 Very vintage :)
 So true!
 This I am going to do for my kitchen, so easy and too cute

 Be very lovely on my red door. 
all images can be found here: via
Oh here is a FREE Printable Spring Cleaning Check List here:

So you can see I have many ideas. Now Just trying to figure out which ones I can do first and not break the bank. LOL I am all about some DIYs :)

My 1st "Sunday Social"

Hey y'all! 
Today this Sunday I decided to do join in on the fun with the whole "Sunday Social"that I keep seeing on a lot of blogs. Which this week's post seem like a good set of questions so I am like why not!
Sunday Social

1. What is one movie you are terrified to watch? 2012: that is one movie I refuse to watch again. Something about it that is just freaked me out way to much. And I won't watch any movie that is somewhat like it either. 

2. What is one TV show you have always wanted to get into but haven’t yet? The Vampire Diaries: Everyone I seem to know is in love with this show. I used to watch the Secret Circle and this show was always on before so I would catch the last few mins of it. Which I never seem to get into it. Netflix has it on so I might give it a try. Since it is Curtis' new favorite show. 
 3. What is one daring activity on your bucket list?  I really don't have a list, but I have always wanted to Bungee Jump and I want to travel to Ireland.Oh and a road trip across country!

4. Would you ever travel alone? yes, I have already travel more than once on my own. I have flown couple of times by myself too. I don't mind it. 

5. What activities do you like to do alone? Driving, because I can just blast my music as loud as I want, and don't have to worry about that awkward moment of silence. Also cleaning house; my house. Crafting and doing things around the house. Also jogging because again no awkward moment of silence or pressure of having to talk to jogging buddy.

My Spring Tobi's Faves!

I am so ready for spring! I have been doing some online shopping these past couple of days and well I found this awesome clothing website; Tobi. They have some awesome things and it is not very pricey either. Here are some of my faves:

1) Ombrella Shift Dress in Coral  2) Spike Along Bracelet in Gold  3) Dolce Vita Archer Strappy Sandals in White & Gold.Made of leather. 4) Lila Drape Top in white comes in 3 other colors.

1) Lets just say I am in love with this dress! It is so spring! I love the ombre effect and I think it is perfect for Easter dinner with the family. So to go with it I picked out 2 & 3 to go with it. Also since it is the 1st time ordering with them I save 50% off each item expect the shoes since its a brand.  This is also nice for a shopping trip, flea market days, yard saling, day drives, days at the coffee shop, and picnics, etc.

2) Picked this bracelet bc for one its gold, and it is a statement piece for any outfit.

3) I am in love with these sandals and for one who can find leather shoes these days that are UNDER $100 bucks? They are clean and simple which I think they are great for any outfit and perfect for this Spring and Summer. ($69) 

4) This top is so beautiful yet simple. I love that it is backless and is another great spring pick for anyone's closet. 

Coming Soon to Tobi's website.... Lacey Cut off Shorts 
I am so ordering these once they are release. They are so hippie like and be super cute for this summer.
So there you have it. My favorite items that all can be found at So look out for some awesome what I wore posts in the future! 

Ps I am heading back home in few days, so excited to see my Curtis! Just wish me a safe flight back to SC.
