I’ve Moved!

6 Jun

I’ve switched blogging platforms, mostly because Blogger gives me more freedom design wise, plus it’s a lot easier! Plus it’s free! So please visit this site, http://peachypeonies.blogspot.com/ from now on to continue reading my blog. You can actually follow me if you have a Google account!

Just Say Yes

You probably know Snow Patrol from the 2007 hit ‘Chasing Cars’. I love them and this song, so you should probably listen and then try not to fall in love.

Go-To Outfit

23 May

There are many times when time is of the essence and I have to be somewhere, well 5 minutes ago. A go-to outfit for these times is crucial for running home and running out the door. Above are a few pieces from Gap, that when pulled together make for the best anywhere outfit. I love how the yellow belt adds a pop of color to an originally neutral outfit.

Life Update

18 May

Oh hey lovies. I’m back, for real this time, I promise! The past two weeks have been absolute madness, but I have loved every bit of it. Between home renovations, my sister’s college graduation, and family visitors I have hardly had any time to devote to anything other than family. Which I’m sure you totally understand! So here’s the skinny on my life for the past couple weeks:

For Mother’s Day I decided to help my mom and dad re-do their bedroom. Before the renovations my mom had installed a burgundy wallpaper, that was pretty, but made the room seem incredibly small. After weeks of searching for new color themes, I brought her out of her comfort level and painted the walls a pretty salmon color.  Our next project is the master bathroom, which I will do a much better job of taking before and after shots! I also promise to show an after picture as soon as I take one. (I know I’m a Slacking Sally)

After completing the renovations my aunt and uncle arrived from Florida for my sister’s college graduation. With them, they brought Sami & Suzie (Jack Russell/chihuahua mix). The house full of dogs made for an interesting couple of days, but always fun.  Last Friday my sister graduated with a B.A. in Business Management… so proud! It was a bittersweet moment that made me realize I am getting old and I don’t really like it. Hey life, you can slow down anytime now. I also, got to hang with some old friends, which always makes life better.

And as a graduation gift to herself, Amy brought home Macy! She is a beautiful 5 month old German Shepherd/Border Collie mix, who is extremely playful and smart. I have enjoyed the past couple days just playing with her and rubbing her belly, which she loves immensely. She also likes to run circles around the house, chewing on bricks, chasing bumble bees, and running in red mud. You know, typical puppy tomfoolery!

And last but not least a birthday shout out is due for one of the best friends ever, Mal!! We will be celebrating the big 2-4 this weekend, and hopefully I will have some tasteful pics to share with you next week. And if they aren’t tasteful, then you will have to know that we had a fabulous time!

Busy, Busy Bee + Mustaches Are Fun

11 May

I’m so incredibly sorry for not posting great reads for the past week and a half. My life is comparable to a whirlwind right now, and when I think I may have time to sit down and post something significant pops up and prevents me from doing so. Or maybe there should be more hours in the day, because I would undoubtedly have time for blogging then! Please don’t hold it against me? Here’s a funny picture of Malorie and I from this past weekend, which consisted of a late Cinco de Mayo/birthday celebration.

Renovations

9 May

Sorry for my lack of posting last week, but I was helping my parents give their room a face lift. I will post pictures later on this afternoon, lovies.

Royal Fashion

29 Apr

I know this is such a predictable post, but the gowns were too beautiful to not talk about! So let’s discuss, shall we? Kate Middleton chose an Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton gown for her wedding dress. It was a gorgeous sweetheart neckline with lace overlay that continued into the long sleeves. The skirt was full with an 8.8 ft train. The Queen let her borrow a Cartier tiara, in which her parents gave her matching Cartier earrings. So fabulous!

Kate’s reception dress was just as beautiful as the first chosen gown. The satin gown with beaded detail was also a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen design which she complemented with a white fur cropped cardigan.

Kate’s sister, and maid of honor, Pippa’s dress was almost as lovely as Kate’s wedding dress. Also, an Alexander McQueen design, the dress had cleaned lines and slightly fish-taled out at the bottom. With lace detail on the sleeves and neckline, and buttons down the back this dress will definitely set a trend for future brides.

The guests did not disappoint with their fancy and sometimes outrageous hats.
