Queen B

I got chills through the performance. By the end of it…I was in tears. She’s so talented. And so beautiful…

The long bob

If you haven’t watched the Netflix series House of Cards…GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW. LIKE RIGHT NOW.

I’ve seen Kate Mara in various small parts before, but I didn’t REALLY take notice of her until House of Cards. Awesome actress.

And I’ve recently become obsessed with her blonde bob. Love love love love love love loooooooooove. She can probably pull off any hairstyle, but so far…this is one of my faves.

Follow the calmness

“You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride.” – Buddha

Floral frenzy

Still riding a small wedding wave…I know it’s already been about a month since our day. :) I’ve been replaying moments, relishing in the efforts and talents of our vendors…

I absolutely have to rave about Marisol from Flourishing Flowers. The website does not do her marvelous work justice. I am eternally grateful to Abby for introducing me to this wonderfully talented floral vendor. I will definitely be using her for any upcoming special events and occasions!

So I sent Marisol an inspiration photo that I found on the BHLDN website…I asked her to base the bridal/bridesmaid bouquets off of this (shown below):

Altar inspirationI was working on a limited budget for the bouquets/ boutonnieres…so I wasn’t really expecting anything crazy. She said that it could definitely be done. I even asked if she could throw something together for the altar under $300 last minute (left: inspiration photo), and she was super enthusiastic about the idea, saying that it was not a problem. She made me feel totally at ease during the process…

Florals weren’t a huge thing to me. During the wedding planning /coordinating process, I kept pushing it off. …Continue Reading →

10474957_271708273020399_319654386_nHad a busy busy busy busy weekend!!!

Jordan’s cousin, Brian, got married to Vanessa Nguyen over the weekend at Newland Barn in Huntington Beach on Saturday! They are an adorable couple, and it was such a beautiful wedding. Their vows were so sweet and extra heart-wearming. They also had a 9-course dinner for reception which was flippin sweeeeeeeeeeeet!!!! Loved every moment of it. So much love. So much heart. ♥

On Sunday, we celebrated my cousin Michelle’s bridal shower at Lounge 22 in Redlands. About 23 girls got together to watch her cross over into the dark side! Ate Sharon hosted the event and it was a beautiful success.

After the bridal shower, scooped Jordan up from the gym (his first game with LLFC league this year), and headed over to Manngo’s apartment to have a divine loco moco dinner with her & Jemma. We ended up in deep conversation about relationships, marriage, and past memories of our roomie days and FTC. 7:00pm turned into 10:45pm. Time flew with them crazy chickas.

Speaking of past memories…just an extended clip of our first USTREAM video with FTC. Before the plus in Charity + Jordan. Oh, how I love archiving :)

Relationship status: Married

We did it!!! I am a married woman!!! Is it strange that it really truly hasn’t hit me yet?! I mean…aside from the wedding and a several hundred photos…mentally, I feel like Jordan and I are still just dating. I still catch myself referring to him as my boyfriend?! That must be a good thing :)

Cherry Luna. Teeheeeeee.
Sounds like a stripper name, right?! :D

Love Sonnet

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”

~ Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
