That one time I thought I was a fashion blogger..

I wish I was a fashion blogger.
I wish I was a fashion blogger.
I wish I was a fashion blogger.

Maybe if I say it 3 times it will actually come true.

Well today I thought I share one of my new favorite outfits out of my closet!
It's simple and AFFORDABLE.

As a Wedding/Event Planning Intern, I always try my best to look "cute" so to speak..
Not as if I just whipped on an old t shirt and grungy jean shorts.

This look is comfortable, and really effortless!

I'm obsessed with my skirt.

This outfit goes great with a pair of black or nude high heels, flats, or dress sandals.

Black V Neck: Gap
Pink High-Low Skirt: Forever 21
Beaded Necklace: Forever 21

This past weekend was full of lots of sunshine, crawfish, and not to mention a lot of pale bodies..
BUT besides that, it was my college graduation party!
Honestly, it couldn't have been more perfect.
Family and friends gathered from all over to help celebrate such a huge accomplishment in my life. We all ate an excessive amount of crawfish, played way too many games of cornhole, & hopefully added some color to our pasty skin as we swam in the pool all afternoon.
Here were some of the pictures I got from this shinnnndig.

My favorite picture..

My favorite picture of "me" is really one that includes a very special person.
This particular picture captured one of the most memorable and beautiful moments in my life.
Seth dropped down on one knee, nervous as could be, and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him..

Hey! It's Okay..

Hey! It's Okay..

 .. to love a movie you swore you were gonna hate

 .. to want to see The Great Gatsby a bijillion more times so you can stare at Leo's handsome-ness.

 .. to still rely on your GPS even though you've lived in the same place most your life.

 .. to care more about TV couples than your friends 4th boyfriend this year.

 .. if your chopstick abilities go as far as having the rubber band attached like all the kiddos do.

 .. to buy a new album purely for two songs, which you repeat over and over (and over) again.

 .. to freak out when you finished all the seasons of HIMYM on Netflix & now don't know what do with yourself

Linking up with Neely !

Sloppy Kisses

Day 9 of the Challenge! 
A moment in your day.

 Even though this was a few days ago, I absolutely love this picture of my Ellie Bear.
I had just gotten home from my last final ever, & who better to celebrate with than my two pups! 
Of course, this hot mess sweetheart greeted me with tons of love & puppy kisses. (or should I say, sloppy kisses?)
Either way, it was one of those moments that I was able to capture her perfect personality. For any of you have a boxer, you probably know what I'm talking about when I say "hot mess." But I love her to pieces.

Mwuahh! Sending some love & kisses your way today.

Warn a girl when there's no toilet paper..

Today's "blog everyday in May" challenge is focused on giving advice.
Well you're probably supposed to pick one thing and elaborate.. but there's just too many tips and tidbits to share..

-If you were just in a bathroom stall that doesn't have toilet paper and you see someone walk in after you.. warn a girl.

-Come to realization that when you're looking for that one specific bandeau top to go under your shirt and you have been searching for over an hour.. it's time to give up.

-Always ask for the butter salt at the movie theatre for your popcorn. It's. The. Best.

-Don't watch any of the Paranormal Activity movies if you want to ever sleep again (even with the lights on)

-Laugh at the guy's jokes even when you don't get them (but not that annoying fake laugh where everyone can tell, but that cute little "oh you're just so cute so I'm going to laugh anyway"..kind of laugh

-When nothing goes right.. go left.

-Always bring your own socks when you go bowling.

-(This one is for the youngsters. Take it from me..)
If you try to runaway and want to be successful. Don't leave a note telling your parents what bush you're hiding out in over at the neighbor's yard.

-It's a bad idea to yawn while riding on a motorcycle.

-To the husbands and future husbands.. Never laugh or question your wife's choices. (remember, you were one of them)

What do you do?

I decided to take part in the "Blog Everyday" in May challenge with Jenni! Of course, i'm starting a few days after, but better late than never, right?

Today's topic focused on "what your job was or what do you do?"

Hmmm. What I want to be doing.. and what I do now.

Well, what I would love to do is plan and design weddings one day with my fiance!
We would love to work side by side helping create one of the most special and memorable days for any bride and groom.

But right now .. I'm about to start next week as a Wedding/Event Planning intern in the big city of Houston!

But that's not all I "do"

-I'm also planning my own wedding in the midst of all this transitioning from student to "big girl."
- A full time mom to two adorable fur babies
-  brainstorm different ways to decorate our future home
- blogging about my life experiences and sharing with the world to see

What do you do?

Happies & Crappies {Link Up}

Talk about the happies in my week overpowering the crappies.
As I type this post, I'm downing my third cup of coffee. (& I doubt i'll stop there)

Happie: Well first things first. Last night Seth & I went to the midnight premiere of Iron Man 3!! Hello, Robert Downey Jr.  This movie is a MUST see. I'm surprised I stayed awake the entire movie since I'm usually like an old lady now and in bed by 10.. But these Iron man movies never fail to be just as good as the last. (Now, time to take another sip of coffee.)

Crappie: I have ONE more final left in my college career. Okay, maybe in a way that's really a happie? But at this point, i'm burnt out and ready to graduate. Final , Schminal. Who wants to take another test? Not me.

Happie: I'm giving away an anthropologie mug over at Caitlin's blog, Fierce, Fabulous, and Fit !!

Happie: I'm loving Francesca's lately! Seth and I unfortunately haven't planned much or made many decisions for our wedding but we did decide on ONE THING. We want to have a thumbprint tree guest book for our outdoor wedding and a tiny guest book for guests to sign their name. Well, of all people, Seth found these while we were shopping in Francesca's the other day. Perfect wooden pencils for the guests to use when signing! Now all I need is a cute mason jar or wooden box to display them in..

Crappie: Honestly, we haven't done much more planning than that. We've been slackers lately (or maybe I just can't commit to anything because there are so many ideas running through my head!) BUT in one week we will finally be in the same area and can get on the ball!!

Crappie: Earlier this week I went to stay with one of my besties, Chelsea, who lives in Austin,TX. (No, hanging with her was not a crappie, but returning to her home after running a few errands to find someone had broken in was..) Of course she called 9-1-1 and from there we felt like we were living in a movie. Police yelling in the house for people to show them selves, guns, kicking down doors shower curtains.. the whole shabiel. Luckily nothing was taken and they were there to check the house.

Happie: This past week, Seth and I spent our weekend with Chelsea  in Austin, and it was an absolute blast. Just a few places you should eat at if you're ever in the area..

Guero's - it's an amazing Mexican food restaurant that has the best food and wonderful prices. Did I mention it's Matthew McConaughey's favorite restaurant!?
Texas Honey Ham Co.- go for breakfast!! I definitely recommend getting the Pig in the Blanket! They take their delicious honey ham and wrap a huge pancake around it. It's delightful. AND affordable.
The Oasis- this is the view in the picture above. The Oasis is absolutely breathtaking. The restaurant itself is multiple stories that looks over Lake Travis.  The food is a little pricey for the small portions but honestly you go for the view and the experience. Definitely go a little before the sunset only because it can get busy there!

Happie: Tomorrow is my first wedding to help as a "Day Of" coordinator. Eeeeek. Super excited.

Happie: Seth and I signed our lease for our brand new apartment home!! We couldn't be more excited, and now all we can think about is how we want to decorate.

Crappie: Texas, what is the deal with the weather? I'm pretty sure last week it was 80 degrees, and this morning it's 50? Seriously, make up your mind. And by that I mean.. go back to being warm, sun-shiney, and bearable. Preesh.

Happie: Seth, Chelsea, and I went to the weiner dog festival with our dogs this past week!!
