polka dots + stripes.

I have major bridal obsession going on right now… The other day I was amidst my weekly Target wandering, having no real purpose in a search I delved into the party isles. Boring – next isle. Lame – next isle. OMG. These beaut’s popped right out at me from the clearance rack. Oh, how gorgeous + perfectly matching our shade of green, are you, amazing emerald polka dot napkins… you must come home with me…  my heart stopped short when they only had 5 packages… equaling 100 napkins… A bit short of what we would need for a cocktail hour of 175 guests… boo. double boo. I ran to the register, snarling to protect my loot, determined to find more, I picked up the latest bridal magazine and began the mad dash to every Target in town, to no avail. Maybe we’ll just have to use them for a shower/party instead of the hors d’oeuvres hour…

Saddened, I grabbed an amazing, amazing I tell you – raspberry passion tea lemonade {starbucks}, to lift my spirits + I began flipping through the pages, whilst sipping my tea. And I stumbled upon these uber cool paper straws… And well… I really want, nay, need them! Wouldn’t they be amazing garnishing a Manhattan? Not only are they super chic – they are on esty.com + purchases support indie markets!

The question/poll I pose is…
***Do the stripes + polka dots:

A. Clash
B. Look retro
C. Are uber awesome + Kate needs to get them both?

july’s whirlwind

Wow. How on earth has July passed us by already?! Its seriously the fourth of August? When + how did that happen? It feels like it should still be the beginning of June. But alas, the month of July has strolled on by leaving a whirlwind of debris in its path.My birthday has came + past, I don’t feel any older… As I am sure you all have noticed, I am long overdue on a blog update! So… lets get rolling… shall we?

Alright: July – where do I even start? My sweet fiance became a first time car owner! Take a look at this beauty! The lavish {utes} red 2010 Toyota Corolla S, became property of this dear man… trust me, ladies, I tried to get him to buy a volvo to no avail…

We have placed the deposit down on our wedding venue + have nailed down the key aspects of the Wedding; including – The photographer, The pastor, + The food. Yay! Now if only we could narrow down all of the centerpiece ideas + decide on ONE… 262 days!!!!!! :D

For the 4th 3rd, Sawyer + I joined my parents up in Park City to watch the fireworks. {if you haven’t caught on… Utah is ridiculous about holidays if they land on a Sunday, and will celebrate them on Saturday/and or Monday}. It was so insanely cold up the canyon that we had to buy blankets because with the gusty winds it was in the low 60’s buy 9pm. Here are some shots from the festivities.


The following weekend, we were able to meet up with some fellow photog friends to do a shoot downtown of some urban nightlife. My camera didn’t work with their lighting set up, so aside from being the “gel changer” assistant, I spent a lot of time in front of the camera… We met a man who ran a business off of his bike called “ice-pop cycles” and had the yummiest coconut ice-pop’s! For only a dollar. A must buy if you ever run into him. Here are some shots from that evening.

We went to see Inception too! Three word. Oh My Wow. Mind blown. Insanely good movie. You all NEED to see it as soon as you get a chance! P.S. Leo is sooo not aging gracefully… sorry buddy, you are just not a hollywood hottie anymore… boo.

Over my birthday weekend, yay 23! {And no, I really don’t feel older…} Soy-man, my parents + I hoped in the car + took a mini road trip up to Idaho Falls, for the Blue Angels airshow. It had been far too many years since I have seen one of their shows… exhibits… what-not. Coming from a person who has not burned in years. Years I tell you… I was crispy upon return home… amazing what high elevation + standing on blacktop all day will do to us pale skins. No fun. Sawyer had never been to an airshow before so it was fun to watch his exuberance + excitement of being able to touch a WWII era plane + watching them fly. I have a feeling it will be the beginning of many airshow vacations with my parents in the years to come! Here are some shots from that adventure!

I promise I will try harder to keep ya’ll updated on the adventures of Augustus!
