Wow- it is Friday again ya'll! This week flew by for me for some reason and I am so excited for the weekend! This week I'm linking up with some of my favorites again like Carolina Charm, The Good Life blog and A. Liz Adventures


I was certified last year in Wedding Planning and Bridal Consultation and I had my first full-service wedding last June for a wonderful couple. (I still work full time so it is sort of on the side) With that said, I am so excited to announce that I just booked my second wedding for a couple this June!! Let the planning begin! (just when I think mine is long gone...diving back into wedding bliss yall)


Tonight is homecoming at my High School (yup- still live in the same town) and a bunch of us are getting together from my class to go! A lot I haven't seen in awhile so I'm really looking forward to it! My best friend from high school (and recent bridesmaid) is coming in town and staying with me tonight as well. Can't wait to see the former queen crown the new princess! (wish I had a pic from my princess days but that was before facebook ya know? haha) GO Falcons!

by the way- our 10 year reunion is in 2015....yikes!

throwback to high school of me and sierra (don't mind the nattys) bad kids..  

Another high school gem with my mom in the background! ha!


Also taking place this weekend is Jess & Tiff's 'annual' Halloween craft weekend in Durham, NC - My friend Tiff (and also recent bridesmaid) loves Halloween so much- she even got married on Halloween! Crafts, food and scary movies are on the menu so I'll have some last minute Halloween goodies to feature next week!


It's finally started to get FREEZING around here and that makes for some good snuggling and bourbon drinking (according to honey) This is the recipe he's been wild over this week:

Crisp Apple Cider Bourbon

Makers Mark 
Sparkling apple cider
Bitters (optional)
Cinnamon (optional)
I love to cut a thin apple slice with the star shape in the middle as a garnish!

Fill a Collins or Old-Fashioned glass with ice. Add bourbon and top with apple cider. If desired, add a dash of bitters, cinnamon and/or an apple slice.

Per drink: 152 calories (2 percent from fat), trace total fat (no saturated fat), no cholesterol, 3 grams carbohydrates, trace protein, 1 milligram sodium, trace dietary fiber.

Warms ya right up


Lastly I want to give a shout-out to my fabulous neighbor Miss Tori! She is so stylish, adorable and always can be counted on for good gossip and wine nights! (& being able to walk across the yard is fabulous too!) She recently started a fashion-esq blog and I just had to share! Check it out: 

Tori with Twenty Something!

 Enjoy your weekend!!
