Wanna See My Serious Face?

I don't know about you but I grew up around picnic tables. I need one in my life again. I had planned on getting one for our back patio, but after seeing Southern Living's new 2012 idea house, I'm considering it on my front porch. Our porch is pretty much just like this one. Huge, open with no railing, wraps around on both sides. We spend all sorts of time out there and I love the idea of it just being a casual and inviting meet up spot. What do you think of a picnic table on the front porch? Josh isn't feeling it. I think it's kinda quirky and great and I wanna just climb up there for some pie and spiked cider.

I'm sure many of you saw that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married earlier this week. What's unique about it for me is that they got married at Boone Hall, which is not only a few miles from my house but more importantly is where Josh and I were married nearly 6 years ago. Beautiful place, in case any of you are looking for a wedding spot.


It took 2 centuries for those rows of moss draped oak branches to meet overhead. Just saying.

One of my most favorite of favorite bloggy friends, Cassie over at Hi Sugarplum, has put together a great article focused on shopping at Forever 21 when you're not... 21. She asked me for my 21 cents (bahaha) and I was happy to share my thoughts. Oh, and this below is my concentration face. You've probably never seen this before. Sorry if it startles you. Head over to get the skinny.
