Wedding Errands, Ampersands, and the Oscars!

It's Monday AND it's March!

Does anyone else feel like February was here and gone in the blink of an eye? What a blur of a month it was but I'm happy to welcome March with open arms in the hopes that it will soon bring us some signs of Spring in Pennsylvania! Fingers and toes are crossed, trust me.

This past weekend marked our 6 months to go until wedding! Well, kinda. We got a little jipped since February doesn't have a 30th - so we just made our own. I almost can't believe it!

We spent our weekend doing what Peter calls "wedding errands" and I must add that he is quite the trooper of a groom. No matter what, he never complains about meetings, consultations, etc. What a guy. This weekend we met with our caterer to finalize our menu, hashed out some rental details, and even went to scope out wedding bands - but more on that on Wedding Wednesday! Okay, maybe a little sneak peak ;-)

 In my opinion, the best Saturdays include going to look at bling.

While we're on the topic of love and Peter and mushy stuff, look at this gorg necklace P got me from Jessica N Designs. I'm slightly obsessed with ampersands and now I can wear one around my neck with our initials forever. Love it SO much and love supporting small businesses that focus on custom and handmade designs.

 I just love it, thanks babe!

Last night was the biggest night in Hollywood - the Oscars were on and I was glued to my TV for the red carpet coverage, which is always my favorite part! My second favorite part, Ellen hosting the show! Although I am one of her biggest fans and watch her show every single day, I felt like she started off with a bang and then fizzled out a little towards the end after the epic selfie that temporarily broke Twitter.

That being said - I fizzled out too because that show is just WAY too long. Cut the fluff and just give the people what they want to see!

But the most important parts for me - the fashion! I think I agree with most of what I saw for my best dressed picks. I felt like there were more hits than misses. Also, that the stars were going for more of a simplistic, less is more look - which I was totally loving.

Here are my pics for the best of the night -

Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace
Lupita Nyong'o in Prada
Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
Cate Blanchett in Armani

What do you think of my picks? Do you agree?

Wishing everyone a great start to the week and the month! Send some Spring vibes my way!


  1. Kate Hudson absolutely nailed it! I'm usually not a huge fan of hers (I don't know why) but she looked stunning! Love that bling ;)

  2. February did go by in a blink! Our wedding is 7/19/2014 and I just realized how much we have left to do! It seems like you are so organized it's not even funny! I can't wait to hear more about how your planning is going.
