Thursday Love List


This week has had some ups and downs. The major downer is the weather. Ugh! Snow is not something I’m very good at tolerating on the last day of March, and to all of you reading from warmer places, know that I would love to be visiting you right now!

There have been some really great moments of the week though too, so here are a few :)

{If you’ve been following my blog/twitter for a while, you probably know of my full-fledged obsession with Matchbook Magazine. Issue 3 came out yesterday and it is the best yet. You are seriously missing out if you don’t go take a look!}

{Joanna Goddard’s “Handy Guide to Creating the Perfect Cheese Plate” on A Cup of Jo. Anyone want to throw a cheese party with me? :)}

{This adorable Style Me Pretty bride’s style! Love her birdcage veil, sweet gown, fresh makeup, gorgeous bouquet, and her yellow heels that you can see in the feature!}

{A weekend with my bride-to-be BFF! She came to visit me and we went wedding dress shopping along with another bridesmaid. So much fun, and so surreal to see my best friend since 1993 (!!) in wedding gowns!}

{I can’t wait to break up my summer shorts/skirts routine with my first ever maxi dress! It’s the Tribal Maxi Dress from Forever21. Can’t beat $12.40!}

{A grapefruit mimosa recipe found on coco+kelley that is exactly how I want to start my 21st birthday. 16 days to go :)}

What pretty things are making you smile this week?

    MMMM…. I need to try that mimosa recipe!

    I saw the cheese post on Cup of Jo the other day and it made me SO hungry. I think I’ll be having a cheese party soon!

  2. I’m thinking I’ll just have to help you celebrate your 21st birthday by making myself a grapefruit mimosa of my own. :) Ah! Such an exciting time!! Also- that maxi dress is lovely- especially the print. And I’ll help throw a cheese party with you! It’s one of my favorite snacks! xo
