Ok the big news has arrived! 
CRICKET IS HERE!!! She is Perfect in EVERY WAY, except that she has some major separation anxiety when I leave. Hopefully that will pass and we can be one big happy family. 

Isn't she amazing? Look at those little crickety hind legs. 
She has been so good in the house. She just follows me everywhere and she sleeps next to our bed happily. She is good on a leash just happy to walk next to us. 
Yesterday Dave and I took her to the beach and she trotted along in the water a bit so hopefully she will be a brave little water dog...(cross your fingers)

We are working on commands. So far she has no clue... but we are getting there...
Sit. Stay. Here...Etc. 

Welcome Home Cricket!
(ugh, we both look very groggy, first thing in the morning, but so in love!)

Gotta have it.

Amazing Dress
Red lipstick is the perfect accessory. xox

Cards anyone?

This weekend we spent some time with one of my best friends and she always teaches me some of the best cards games. I really LOVE cards games, but if there is one thing I know about my self... it is that I lack the patience to read directions. 
So I always have to wait for her to learn one, and than teach me.. 
Its a system that works really well, despite the fact that she usually kicks my butt the first time we play together. (I am better at losing than her tho, so I guess its the best, ha) 

So we played Canasta. Have you played that before? 
It was amazingly fun. And terribly hard not to cheat. I highly recommend breaking out a deck and trying it out. And wouldn't it be a bonus if the deck looked like this?

Fancy huh?
I think the next round of indulgence may be elegant card decks. What do you think?


New Dress a Day

Have you all heard of the Blog "New dress a day" its pretty amazing and the girl who does it is adorable. 
She gets a new {out of date} dress every day and re-fashions it so it is hip and trendy and looks hip with the times. She just signed a book deal and I am so happy for her. 
Check out her blog for more of her work, here.

Just a treat

Isn't this cuff from Blackoak Jewelry lovely?


A Southern Wedding.

 As promised, here are the beautiful pictures from the wedding we went to in Charleston this weekend. 
It was filled with Southern Charm. The bride was beautiful and wore creamy poofy gourgeous dress that fit her oh so perfectly... and her veil had pieces of her mothers wedding dress in it, 
Jenny, that was so pretty!

Documented epic game of Croquet...

Oh that checker board dance floor. It was a little quiet on the dance floor so Dave and I went out and stirred it up a little bit... We can never resist a good Dance Party. xox
What a good looking wedding party!

She threw the bouquet after cutting a rug on the balcony... {too cute}...
No, I did not catch it. 

Perfect photo opp. Could not resist. 
Yes, that little spec in the top right corner is the dolphin that came in for a visit. 
What a beautiful addition to the vista. 
The beautiful old trees, covered in spanish moss with swings... 
were an amazing way to top of the evening. 

The bride and groom left the reception by boat and watched fire works that we set off the dock. Then they met everyone over at Salty Mike's Dock Bar for some more late night celebrating!

Congratulations Chris and Jenny, You will be amazing. 
Love from both of us!
