Stay Safe!

Hey y'all! I lost track of time and blogging sort of took a backseat after last weekend's busy schedule. However, Andi loved her new dance class and the wedding I coordinated on Saturday went so well despite the weather change. My sweet Father got me a hotel room that night so I didn't have to drive all the way in the storm to get home after midnight and judging the new 2019 Longwood Cheerleading squad was so much fun on Sunday once I returned home. Sunday night Hubs and I were finally able to celebrate our anniversary and went to a fabulous dinner out. Monday brought around Miss Andi's first (school year) mega fever and we've kept her home from school yesterday and today. She's recovering but its so heartbreaking to see your little one sick and weak. 

Needless to say Mama and I are not prepping for our big beach week since this hurricane has made other plans. With that said, our little town of Farmville is in the territory of heavy winds and potential flooding. I pray that everyone, especially on the coastline and the already evacuated spots, stay as safe as possible! Be careful out there and took extra storm prep precautions. Lets keep our fingers crossed that Florence decides she wants to stay out at sea or at least weakens her force.

Cheers to 5 Years!

Y'all - we hit our first milestone: Cheers to 5 years of marriage! Multiple moves, a sweet as pie baby girl and 3 home renovations later and we're still trucking along! (I mean, that's saying something right?) It may not always be rainbows and staying under budget (Ha - see what I did there?) but we sure do make a great team. Due to work schedules and the fact that I have a wedding to coordinate this weekend, we'll be celebrating Sunday night when we're reunited. Can't wait! Have a great weekend y'all!

WHW: Porch Styling

Hey y'all and happy Wednesday! Today I want to share some of my inspiration for a chic and cozy {Fall-esq} porch. Now keep in mind this is geared more towards our new house because we are installing the black frames for our exterior windows. The current house has a large custom black exterior door so it could still work but the space is much smaller. Anyway, with the white siding and black framed windows, I can't stop swooning over black and white stripes or gingham paired with pops of green like boxwoods. Of course you'll see my signature blue thrown around in the mix and lets not forget that the porch ceiling and floor will also be blue. I mean, that is a must am I right? Anyway, how glam is this color palette for an outdoor scene? Makes ya want to come over and have some processo on my porch!

Fall Wishlist

Oh my heavens y'all the time is finally upon us (although the cooler temperatures are not) FALL! I'm so dang basic when it comes to Fall (and even winter) I live for these months, live for this season of fashion and live for this season of decor as well. Basically, BRING IT ON. I've been adding things left and right to my LIKEtoKNOWit app and I'm loving pretty much every look that's emerging for Fall 2018. Today I want to share the must-haves that are at the tip of my list. I'll make sure to link everything so y'all can check it out. Also, share with me your favorite go-to looks and decor for Fall because I'm over here sipping my first (and only because I like caramel macchiatos better) PSL and loving all things Fall y'all. (ha!) Have a great weekend!

Linking up with Christina for Friday 5 today

WHW: Random

Hey y'all! This week has been crazy busy thus far and the month of September pretty much scares me to death (which sucks because I adore all things Fall) because I do not have a single free weekend. My BIL is getting married this Saturday, (cannot wait to celebrate and see Andi's debut as a flower girl) I'm coordinating a wedding out of town the next weekend, Mama and I head to the beach the next and then I finish out the month with another wedding. Whew! I still have my eye on all things design even in the midst of the craziness. We went and looked at countertops and I'm really thinking about taking the plunge and doing the contrasting island/countertops throughout. Take a look below and let me know your thoughts on the black island.

I finally scored my first fiddle fig tree and I'm literally praying every night that I don't kill him. Hayneedle was running an awesome sale on planters - I'm talking those $200 gorgeous oriental planters were marked down to $78 bucks y'all - so I snagged one immediately. He looks gorgeous and I hope he thrives. Thanks for the tips on IG last week!

Also on my radar are these seasonings from Trader Joes. I feel like everyone in the free world has a Trader Joes but us so luckily I found them on Amazon. There's so many yummy recipes I've seen floating around and I can't wait to add these to the spice drawer.

Speaking of recipes, Home Chef is still going strong in my household (let me know if you want to try it and I'll send you a $30 off code) but its not delivered until this evening so last night we tried the Turkey Lettuce Wrap recipe that Christina shared and it was delish y'all!

Lastly, tomorrow is school picture day for this cutie and she couldn't be more excited! She is absolutely loving school and I am so so proud of my little monkey-doodle. She's making friends, staying on green light and coming home with so many new things to share with me (including all 4 oceans "bacific" is her fav)

Happy Wednesday y'all and thanks for linking up!
