weekend adventures

last weekend we spent time at Josh's families new place on the river.
wandered into town and ate breakfast at this cute diner.
my mom is a kickass breakfast maker and their home-fries 
were the closest thing I have ever tasted to hers.
and they fried my ham for my egg sandwich.
Blue Bell you are probably my new bff.


On Saturday night we went to a local brewery
it sits on the river and they actually grow hops on the patio.
 the inside looks like a bar and a coffee house had a baby.
I want the vintage sectional they have.
Or this one.

we finally put up the decal I bought from shanna murray.
I am slightly obsessed with her decals now.
It was so easy to put up.
ok not gonna lie, I am like a walking disaster and I 
didn't want to screw up something that will be on our wall forever 
so I watched Josh apply the decal. But it all worked out 
beautifully with no complications.
this is my next purchase I think. 
she does customs as well so I am brainstorming on that!
any cute ideas?

this song from Dierks Bentley's bluegrass album is all over the radio.
I love that its acoustic. and it hasn't gotten old (yet)
watch the video here

Come on girl it's almost dawn
Lets get it 'fore the magic gone
Tall tall grass all around
Come on lay that blanket down
Wild flowers just like you
Lay on me like mornin' dew
Now take my hand walk with me
Sun come up through them trees
Give you all I got to give
That's how we live up on the ridge

his tour poster wants to be framed and hung up in my livingroom

my recent blue and orange thrifted goodies.

my hometown is ten shades of amazing

someday when Josh and I get married
our reception will be here
and it will be FREE.
a local businessman offers this awesome venue
for the community to use for events
for free.
he rocks.

I bought Liberty of London scarves on clearance
and used them to create pure awesomeness in our bathroom.
Josh's reaction: "it looks like Cher's bathroom."

and some art journal pages

Happy Thursday!

today i love... white dresses

even if I am the messiest mess maker in the world
I still love to wear white in the spring/summer.
a zillion layers of cuteness
from J.Crew via Moodboard


and cowboy boots

this photo reminds me of "Jacob, Have I Loved"
my favorite book in 5th grade.
It made me want to have a boy and name him Cal.
