Wedding Flowers.

So, I ran into our florist (Bloomin' Buckets) right after Christmas while we were in the STL and it totally made my day (well, that and the fact that Zach and I were enjoying a day in St. Louis together :).  She is one of those people from the wedding who we simply "clicked" with all around.  From the time my mom and I entered the door at our first appointment, it was clear we were in good hands.  Her little studio consisted of a wonderful white couch and inviting, bright ribbons hanging everywhere. Here were some of the inspirations we gave her for the wedding. 

They started like this...

Barb was so easy to work with and to be honest, I don't really remember worrying about how the flowers would turn out because she had such a similar aesthetic.  Everything was just as fresh looking as I had hoped it would be and she even found peonies, which I never thought we would have!  Lastly, she and her daughter knew exactly where to find that blue French ribbon in the photo above, which was one of my favorite details of all.  Although there were some changes (lily of the valley happens to be very expensive...bummer), here were the end results...

HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

This. Girl. - I love her.
Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.   This little person becoming their own human being, little by little.  Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.   Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey. In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.
He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.
