My Obsession...
 For those who know me/read my blog you know that my wedding theme
 is rustic-chic/tree theme.
So I had to share with yall my favorite pictures of a tree that I took last week.

Their is something about trees that just amaze me,
 I think its the fact that a tree has
so much history and has seen so much. 
Some trees have been around for hundreds of
years and has seen so many different things.
Call me weird but I love to think like that

Am I the only one with a tree obsession??

Have a great weekend everyone!

What I {Wanted} To Wear...Fit for a Princess??

 I was slack this week with the"What I Wore Wednesday." I
had a place (ie mole or whatever) cut off my side on Tuesday
so I really haven't been in the mood to dress up,
plus my side hurts to wear anything but sweat pants.
I promise next week I will have great outfit to make up for it.

Here are a few things what I would of *wanted* to wear.

Kate Middleton
I love everything about her style..even those amazing hats she pulls off,
gods knows they would look hideous on me.

Who said the Royals couldn't be kinky? Kate ushers in a new era for the monarchy as she makes her way to work. (

just a little bit of leather for the Princess-to-be Kate Middleton on this trip to Scotland. (

I love Kate's style and I think she is GORGEOUS! 
Am I the only one excited about the
Royal Wedding??


This is what I would love to wear to my 2nd bridal shower on Sunday.

I love this look. It would make a great shower outfit for sure!

Now there you have it, you now know that I want to be like Princess Kate,
and that I love the Anthro- look..

The question is.....

DIY Birch Wood Centerpieces

I'm so thrilled to be able to show yall one of my many wedding crafts that I tackled
Everyone remembers that I'm doing a rustic lodge theme right? Well if not, you can take a
 look at it HERE.
This week I had a craft night at my friends Kecia's house, so much fun, loved being able to use my
wood burning tool!
Take a look at what we made.

My Inspiration

My Birch Wood Centerpieces

Here is how I made them

First I heated up my wood burner.

Then I cut out a heart shaped template & traced a heart outline onto the wood.

Take your knife and carve over what you just outlined.

This makes the wood burning step so much easier to do.
I highly recommend you carving a outline.

{what it looks like carved}

Next- take your wood burner and gently glide over your carved area.

Pretty neat huh? These were so quick & simple to make.
I thought they turned out perfect!

Stay tuned for more of my DIY wedding crafts!

How to Celebrate Earth Day?

1. Plant a Tree- Planting trees helps to reduce greenhouse gas, cleans pollution,
secures soil and helps with erosion, and provides home for animals.


2. Reduce-Reuse-Recycle: Do this all day long! Recycle your plastic bags, take cloth bags with you to the grocery store. Take drink containers with you-reuse plastic water
bottles.  Donate your old toys, clothes to others. Just don't throw
them away. 

3. Pick up Litter- Get a group together and pick of trash along the side of the road or 
around your neighborhood. Many company's donate gloves and bags for 
clean-up groups. 


4. Wear Green or Brown- Think nature or trees.
I want this t-shirt for earth day.
