Have I ever told you the story of how I met my husband? He was in a rock band, and my friend and I were the groupies. We used to follow them around to all of their shows and were even 'merch' girls for a of their stops. They were pretty good too - they opened up for Fall Out Boy before they were super big.

My favorites: my peonies, my poppies and most of all, my 6 hydrengea plants. There's nothing better than walking into th[...]

The past few weddings I've gone to, there have been photobooths and I've watched SO many people have tons of fun in them. With fun props and photos printed on the spot, how could you go wrong? Can't afford to pay for a photobooth? Set up an area at your reception with a fun backdrop + props and have someone on hand to take pictures for the night. And if you want to know my pic for the best photo[...]
Hello there lovlies - are you ready for the weekend?
