midweek musings

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Happy Hump Day! Is it just me, or is this week literally dragging by at a snail's pace? I felt like it was Wednesday on Monday...

Stopping into blogland to share some of my current favorites right now!

// Grapefruit La Croix sparkling water - on ice...so delish! Feeling frisky? Just add vodka ;)

// My new Dottie Couture maxi skirt - only $26 and on it's way to me as we speak! Excited to pair this with a white cami or tank and some killer wedges!

// Magnolia Farms sign - saw this on an episode of Fixer Upper, and fell in love. Then they advertised a flash sale coupon code one night and I just had to buy it. Can't wait to hang it in my house! ...once I figure out HOW to hang it in my house...it weighs a ton! 

// Amazing dance portraits by Alexander Yakovlev - just stunning! 

// This protein shake (mixed with various fruit and plain Greek yogurt) has been making up all of my recent breakfasts and lunches - #notbikinireadyjustyet ;)

the best anniversary yet

Friday, June 5, 2015

Taking a break from the typical Friday posts to share some special news...

Many of you may have seen on my Instagram already, but Aaron proposed on our anniversary this Wednesday! It was a complete surprise and so romantic and perfect!

Our 4 year anniversary was Wednesday, June 3rd and I thought Aaron was going to be home super late because he was out of state traveling for work...so I took off Thursday so we could celebrate our anniversary then. I had work and school, like always, but when I pulled up to the house at 9:30 after getting home from class, I saw hundred of candles lining our front porch...

As I walked into the house, there were candles and white roses everywhere...and Aaron on bended knee :) I'll keep his speech to myself, but let's just say we were both in tears (and it had me close to sobbing haha!)

My heart is bursting with happiness and I am so beyond excited to marry my best friend! 

He customized the ring himself and it is just perfect...

Needless to say, this has been the best anniversary yet...and one of the best days of my life! Planning won't start for a while because I need to finish school...doing both on top of working would just be too much - so we are just enjoying being engaged now! I'm excited to share the planning with all of you once it begins though! xx
