T G I Favorites


Hello! And Happy Friday! Another week in the books!  Although it was a short week, it was still jammed packed with things to do.  I swear I never seem to be able to catch up. . . on anything.  I am looking forward to this weekend.  We are supposed to have some rain, so that may keep me inside and able to get some things done. (fingers crossed) Regardless, I have lots of posts to prepare for and fun things ahead, so rain or shine, I will be enjoying it either way.  

As I work to get back to blogging regularly and build up my network, I am constantly thinking of new things to talk about, different ideas for posts and just what I might want to read from someones point of view.  I am always pinning, bookmarking and dogearing articles or pieces that I want to come back to or that are important or resonate with me.  

And in doing so, I thought, I may not be the only one who might find these things useful, entertaining, covet worthy or necessary.  So with that came the idea of a weekly blog post to round up, if you will, all those fun little pieces I come across and want to revisit/share.  

Below are some of my tags from this week.  Anything you guys came across that I missed and should check out? 

Have a wonderful weekend! 

**Love my slow cooker - these are great ideas for weekly meals.  There is minimal prep and you come home to a cooked meal! E-A-S-Y!

**Want to pick up a new hobby this year? Why not try knitting? You can make a scarf to use during these cold months! There is just something so satisfying about making your own clothes!

**Easy Yoga moves to do when you need to power through the work day.  

**With all the warm weather we are having, I'm starting to look for spring/summer pieces to add to my wardrobe.  I picked up this swimsuit yesterday. LOVE the color and fit and the price is great! I also grabbed this style too and its under $60!

**Is getting organized on your list of goals for 2017?  Here's a great article to help get you started.

Happy Wednesday, Lovelies!  I hope this week has been a good one so far!  I had Monday off from my 'real' job, so I spent the day working on a few updates to the rental property I manage and working on a few things for SbF.  There are some fun things ahead and a new look on the way as well!  I can't wait for it all to come together!  I decided to do one more Wedding post because I loved our video so much and wanted to be able to share it with those who were there and those who weren't.  Joanna and her husband did a phenomenal job.  If you are in Northwest Florida and need a videographer, Sixpence Productions is the BEST!  They were so good, I didn't realize they were there!  That's when you know they are pro's, when you can enjoy your day and not feel like you're being recorded or followed.  I just cannot say enough good things about them!  

Below is the link to the teaser I had on Facebook a few weeks ago, the feature film of our whole day, and the entire ceremony film.  We could not be happier with how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it too! 

Have a fabulous day and I'll see you Friday for a fun new post! xx

{our wedding photos}

Happy Hump Day!  We're halfway to the weekend, yay!  I hate to say it, since most everyone else in the country is freezing, but this week, so far, has been really nice.  We had a cold start to the week, but today and the rest of the week/weekend are going to be in the 70's and sunny! Looking forward to getting out this weekend and enjoying it more!

Since I was a bad blogger and NEVER covered my wedding (sorry, we moved and work got nuts and we were traveling like crazy) like I said I would, I thought I would do a recap of our day here.  So you won't get to see the build up, but you can at least see the finished product.  I can not say enough about the vendors we worked with, our wedding planner and our families.  It was the weekend of a lifetime and I am so excited that we now live just 20 minutes away from where we said I do.  We can take a drive over as often as we want to relive that day.  Our photographer was AMAZING and sent us over 800 photos from the day!!! I won't inundate you with all of them, but below are some of my favorites.  I tried to also tell the story of our day, if that makes sense.  I've listed all our vendors below the photos in case someone you know is looking to get married down here.  I literally have nothing bad to say about any of them.  They were all a dream to work with while going through the process.  I hope you enjoy this little peek into our wedding day. xx
