I don't even care that these would kill my feet.

Swoon. I just plain need this. And the body to rock it.

This would take entirely too much time and patience, but gosh darn it that's cute.

And now, for some funnies:

Brilliant. The gift that keeps on giving.

What? He does!

Merry Christmoose!

Wedding Wednesday: 27 Dresses-Inspired

A Happy Wife in New Orleans

Hey there, dudettes and a few dudes!

I originally had nothing to contribute today for A Happy Wife in New Orleans' link-up. We have yet to set a date and plan to scope out venues in January for our Spring 2014 wedding. I can't wait to set a date! By the time we say "I do" I will probably run down the aisle, cut to the chase, and scream my vows.

Unfortunately, the classy side of me must prevail.

Until then, however, I have to post some nasty bridesmaid dresses just for fun.
27 Dresses is on right now, and I just couldn't help myself.

So here we go: some "gowns" that some poor gals may be asked to purchase and wear. Good thing I love my girls too much to do this to them...but goodness it's presenting very humorous mental pictures!

Le voilĂ !


I'm all for floor-length gowns, but sheesh.  I really don't know which one is worse. 
Heck, at least they're 60% off.


I just...I just can't.


Give me polka dots and I'll give you many ways to wear them in your outfit. 
Give me many polka dots in one outfit? 
I'll point and laugh.
...and quite possibly vomit as you walk down the aisle.


My dear darling friend, won't you please be my bridesmaid? 
Sweet. 'Cuz you're wearin' wings.

And finally...


This would fit my Sesame Street theme PERFECTLY. 
Now if I could only find dresses to match that would represent Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, and Oscar.

Give it time. I'm sure they're out there.

Silence and Support

Sometimes being a blogger means we share our voice. 
Thank you to Helene, Neely, Meg and Michelle for starting this movement. 

On Tuesday, December 18th, there will be a blogger day of silence. We will post the button and that’s it. Please try to not post anything else that day if possible.
We are also raising money that will go to an organization in the memory of this tragedy. The organization is called The Newtown Family Youth and Family Services.
Here is the official description of the support service we are donating to:
“Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. is a licensed, non-profit, mental health clinic
and youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve their
highest potential. NYFS provides programs, services, activities, counseling, support
groups and education throughout the Greater Newtown area.
Please visit THIS PAGE to make your donation.
We can’t imagine how they must be feeling, especially this close to the holidays. We would love for you to spread the word on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Let’s make a difference and use blogging in a positive way.
Thank you in advance for participating.

Friday's Fancies: Serious Sparkle!


Happy Friday! I couldn't wait for the theme this week on Friday's Fancies at long distance loving! Tonight is my work holiday party so I'm absolutely rocking some sparkles!

Here's what I'd wear out on the town (not a work party!) if I could add some more sparkle to my closet:

Well the H&M skirt and beauty products are affordable...but not anything else! Whatever. I love to dream, and when you dream in sparkles you always win!

Be sure to check out the other festive outfits at long distance loving!

Little Bit of Sass Thursday

Good morning, my dears!

Have you heard of Grumpy Cat?


He's quite the sassy cat.

Gets me every time!

We did our own little rendition of Grumpy Cat with Teddy.
He didn't take to the reindeer antlers I bought him too well:

We're thinking of making this a Christmas Card.

 Yeah I know it's been a while and I know you don't want to read my excuses for my lack of posting.

I have nothing planned today but I think it's really cool that it's 12/12/12! 


I'm a loser and took a picture:

There's an awesome concert tonight for Sandy Relief efforts on many channels and it's my friend's birthday. She rented out a Speakeasy to celebrate. I actually styled my hair today for the occasion. 

Are you doing anything to commemorate this awesome, once-in-a-lifetime day??

Wedding Wednesday!


Happy Wednesday!

I'm still not exactly sure what to write about on Wednesdays. 

We haven't set a date yet but are shooting for the spring of 2014. 

Aside from not knowing anything I have a whole bunch of inspiration and ideas! 

Today I'm thinking up color schemes.

Some classic spring, some more fall-like, some just plain whimsical.
Sigh...any ol' colors will do.

Obviously, I must consult with the groom and the parentals, but this is a good start for now.
How did you decide? Any tips? Any favorites from the above schemes?

Little Bit of Class Tuesday

Editor's Note: I wrote this post before Andrew got home and surprised me with this!

Where's that aisle? I'm going to sprint down it!


I'm sitting in my pjs on the couch with Teddy drinking wine as I write this post. Clearly I'm the classiest of the classy this fine evening.

Let's chat class today, shall we?

How about some wine manners?
Different glasses depending on the blend:

Now here's some placement:
