Friday Favorites

Happy Weekend!!

I'm so ready for the weekend!  We have football, food, date night, a local festival and more on the agenda!  I'm also going to be filming some videos this weekend so if you have any topic suggestions let me know. 

Speaking of videos, have you seen my video on how I decorated our fall table?

Also, have you subscribed to my channel yet?  If not, you can do that here!!  I'm really trying to grow my channel so all support is greatly appreciated :)

I desperately needed some dressy work clothes and found this shirt & dress at the Loft and the black & white blouse at Ann Taylor. Love!

Have you tried Thred Up? It's an online consignment store. They contacted me about trying them out and I found this adorable J.Crew dress that's perfect for work!

Check out all J,Crew items here and use code JCREW50 for 50% off a first time order of J.Crew shoes!

I didn't have any specific lunch plans yesterday so I decided to go for a walk. I was able to get lots of steps in and I felt super refreshed going back to work!

It's Apple Fest weekend. This is us there last year! I love Apple Fest. I can't wait to get pumpkins, mums, a new fall door hanger and a funnel cake :) 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

How to Decorate your Table for Fall [VLOG]

I always start my table with my favorite Hobby Lobby chargers!

Little details added from Hobby Lobby & TJ Maxx!

Love my fall centerpiece!! See my DIY video here!

A Cincinnati Wedding

So I'm finally getting around to recapping Katlin's wedding weekend!!  It was a very fun weekend but it  #oldladystatus 

The weekend was kicked off with a Thursday night rehearsal at their church followed by a rooftop rehearsal dinner & cocktails overlooking downtown Cincinnati.

Bride & Groom

Bridal Party!

9 years of friendship! Love this girl.

Jared stayed behind the first part of the weekend so I was happy to have these lovely ladies to hang out with!

Still obsessed with this dress.  Next time I have a fancy occasion, pretend you haven't seen it before okay? 

Telling stories around the firepit!

Saturday morning started off with me rousting the bride from her bed for our nail appointment.  In college, she had to drag me out of bed for class a lot of days but somehow I've become the early bird :)

Loved our monogrammed chambray shirts!

After nails, we ran some errands & had a yummy lunch!

We also stopped in for an eyebrow wax at this awesome place in downtown Cincy.  Alice rocked our eyebrows!

Love my Rust girls!

Friday night, Katlin's parents hosted a dinner at their house plus they surprised Katlin with a fireworks show!

We love our bride!


Makeup complete & now on to hair :)  I'm not one to put much of a color on my lip but I love the color our makeup lady used!

Ready to go!

Sweet Hannah!

Party bus...check! 
We had a stressful day but these guys kept us laughing!

Our girl is MARRIED!!!

Finally reunited with my family at the reception!!

Missed this guy SO much!

Hard to believe it's been almost 2 years since our wedding!  Doing life with Jared is my favorite thing every day :)

When you take boys to weddings and major sporting events are happening that night....

Daddy's girl for sure :)

I was so happy to be reunited with these 3!!! 

Sunday morning we slept in a little and then Jared took me to the Cheesecake Factory which was my only request after that long weekend!   It was so delicious and helped break up the drive.  The afternoon was full of laundry, football and relaxing on the couch!
