bridal shower designed and thrown for my beautiful roommate paigey
her colors were lavender, grey and creme/white as you can see.
the little playhouse in our backyard.

some of the florals

table scape.
luckily we had enough wood tables and vintage chairs to seat everyone.
place settings
bags of lavender as the favor.
my other roommate alex made the lavender sprig name tags
she also took all the photos.
little bow

baby's breath. yesssss.
ribbon bunting. simple and pretty.

good tuesday to you beauties.

i have some news to share. FINALLY picked my shoes. (seriously, i am the worst at making decisions). anyway, the winner is:

yes yes. number 3 is the winner. after taking a trip to nordstrom to see if they were available for trying on, and failing, since they only had the leopard-print i decided to consult the most dependable helper in decision making i know: the mom. after she voted a yes for them, along with my maid of honor, and considering all of the votes it got from you gorgeous ladies, i was unable to deny it any longer: they were meant to be.

they go with my vintage theme and i KNOW i will wear them again. we'll see if they last on my feet the whole night, however. (killer heel, but surprisingly comfortable)

anyway, i seriously cannot thank you all enough for your input.

also, i did a little baking date with some blogger friends of mine who enjoy all things cupcake and i thought i would share it with you. (insert cupcake nirvana here)

coming up: i planned/executed another shower, my beautiful roommate paige's. gotta share some of those photos with you. PLUS- my first "real wedding" to post. :-)

this dress.

i need it. oh gosh. if only i had thought to look up vintage maxi dresses.

in other news: THANK YOU THANK YOU for helping me figure out my shoe decision.
i'm going to make a final decision soon and i'll keep you posted! i really appreciate your help and advice

also: wedding dress fitting THIS SATURDAYYY. maybe i can sneak some photos on here if i make mr. hersh promise not to look until after the wedding.

therefore please enjoy this picture of some treats that i made over christmas:

(my boys-fiance in the middle)
did i ever share with you guys that i LOVE to bake....more specifically i love to decorate baked goodies. i'm hoping i can do it as a career eventually.
i think i'll start cataloging some decorative delights as i go on this crazy wedding journey
just to mix it up a bit.

over the weekend i crafted a leaning tower of pisa cake for my good friend's birthday (obviously a guido brother of mine). i'll have to share it with you all got many stares as i walked the few blocks it took to get from the parking garage to the restaurant in pasadena

i guess it was pretty sweet...more tomorrow

went on a run this morning with this little gem:

she was stoked. i was not. well, sort of.

i've got dress fittings on the brain, coming up in just 2 1/2 weeks
but i've also been reminded that i will be living in SD this summer
getting ready for the wedding with my mama
and got to thinking: "oh ya, i've got to get into a bathing suit soon."
i took for granted all the summers i had there growing up and want to take
advantage of the fact that i will be living 10 minutes from the beach!!!
considering i will be moving to central oregon soon.

anyway...blah blah blah. all that thinking got me to searching for some cute
bikinis and i found these lovelies:

all from here

are you going to be heading to the beach a lot this summer?
any fun trips planned?
events you are excited about?

1st on the agenda: run a bunch with the pup
2nd: buy one of these beauties...i'm thinking maybe the first one (too cute)

baby toes.

came across these little gems today while perusing the etsy world for some vintage shoes of my own:

from (here)

and it made me want to have one of these:

but do not be alarmed. i am certainly not planning on having one anytime soon. i need to get married and hang out with mr. h first, have adventures, be young and married. but seriously...whenever i see adorable baby toys or clothes, i just get so excited for the future. does that ever happen to you??? does a to-die-for baby dress, or cute little bow tie, or baby moccasins get your maternal hopes goin?

and hang out with the mr. like this

Tuesday, April 6, 2010


thinking about investing in one of these

for the photobooth i want to make and employ for the guestbook entries

because although i already have one of these

the film is far less expensive and you still get phenomenal, dreamy photos like this
