Sunday Savings

This weekend has been crazy for S and I . We officially finished our wedding registry, a long, fun, tedious and, at times, stressful task to say the least. It feels good to be done and ready to move on to the next steps in wedding planning. Sorry for this coming to you so late today, but I hope you enjoy some of our favorite sale items from this week!

Getting Fit in 2014

Everyone knows that after all the sweets and parties over the Holidays, January is the time to get back on track and feel healthy again. For those of you who read our New Year’s Resolutions, you know that W and I are working to get toned this year before we walk down the isle. The first step to that… working out. W and I will be running a half marathon along with 4 of our best friends. So here it goes, our shameless plug: we are raising money for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a philanthropy we all hold close to our hearts. The race is in 2 weeks, so the clock is ticking… We need help raising money for this amazing organization. If you are at all interested in helping out, we’d more than appreciative. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate.

On that note, to making working out more fun, I always like to start with some cute workout clothes. Here are some of my favorites  ON SALE right now. You can look cute and get a great deal too.

We’re coming off a high from finding C’s PERFECT wedding dress last weekend, and it’s got us in full-on wedding mode. Today we’ve got a list of the best wedding ideas that have caught our attention lately. Enjoy!

Shoes for the glam bride and the casual bride. We’ll take both, thanks.

First off, we love the idea of the uniform Pinterest board cover photos from Gem Jackson. And the girl has some majorly awesome wedding pins worth coveting.

Martha Stewart Weddings will always be our favorite source of inspiration. Check out these great favor ideas.

A perfect idea for entertaining the younger crowd at your wedding.

I know I’m officially an adult because I spent Halloween evening at work. Talk about a buzz kill. In my defense, it was storming like crazy outside, but really, what kind of excuse is that?


Oh, what we wouldn’t give to be in college again….#FlashbackFriday

To make up for my lousy Halloween, I’ll be donning a costume for a party tomorrow. Perhaps I’ll use this as a costume guide: Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas for the Modern Woman.
