Today officially marks 75 days until my fiancé makes me an honest woman! And while I’m having mini panic attacks 24/7, I can’t wait for the day to be here so I can finally call him my husband.
There are still about 1000 little things on my checklist to get done, but a biggie I’ve yet to conquer is my SOMETHING BLUE! I’m a sucker for cute traditions, so this ranks high on my “THINGS I NEED FOR A PERFECT WEDDING” list.
Lately I’ve been noticing that it’s all about the Bride’s FEET! Weird, right? (But I'm secretly jumping aboard the blue toes train.)
My favorite wedding blogs (StyleMePretty, OnceWed, Green Wedding Shoes) have posted endless photos of brides with a little blue peeping out from under their dresses. Blue shoes are definitely the new "it" bridal item!
Do you like this idea? Did you do it yourself? I want to hear your thoughts!

We had a funny conversation about scrunchies and sex on the air not too long ago. Elvis asked me to show him how fast I can make a messy bun...so I did. Then I received an email from our listener, Donna, asking for a video tutorial on how I did it. I decided to share it with the world! However, I am not a professional and the bun is not as cool as you think...at all. Really. I suck.
Everyone has a different beach style. This was our first day ever on the beach together so we figured we would document our style! Check it out!
This is how I rank the most important things in my life:
2. My Family
3. The 2012 Hit Sitcom on Fox, THE NEW GIRL!
So you can see why I nearly peed my pants when this adorable video of the New Girl cast hit the internet! In my next life I will come back as Zooey Deschanel.
When I put this outfit together I looked in the mirror and said, "wow, good job." I get excited when I piece ordinary items in my closet together to make a cute, fashionable outfit. For example, here I'm wearing Target, Cotton On, and New York & Company! Other than my Ray Bands (my signature piece for the summer) nothing is expensive! Look in your closet, try to find random things, and then put them together! I promise it will look good! Send me your pics!!!
