Cherry on Top: Our Engagement Photos at Joey's Diner

As a photographer, style blogger, and all around creative retro gal, I have been looking forward to our engagement photo shoot forEVER. I mean, I was fantasizing about it way before we were even engaged.

Our Lips Are Sealed: The Red Lipstick Showdown of 2018

Let's get ready to ruuuuuummmbbbllllleeeee! A lipstick rumble, that is!

As I continue to make plans for my wedding (AHHH! That STILL feels super weird to say!), one of the first things I decided to do was hunt down the perfect red lipstick for the day of. Back in May, CiCi Marie shared her experiences with red lipstick in anticipation of her wedding and it was her post that gave me the "oh duh!" moment. Would I need to look for a long lasting, kiss proof lipstick for my wedding? You betcha! No cheap drug store brand would work here!

So I started early and am proud to announce that by the time we entered March, I had my wedding lipstick picked out. I only had to try 3 total to find it but I figured it would still be fun to share which ones I tried and my thoughts on each! Cici Marie's post helped me get started so I hope that maybe mine will do the same for someone!

So without further ado, here are the 3 kiss proof, long lasting lipsticks that I put to the test to become my official wedding lipstick (with help from a very special guest you will all probably recognize)!

What's Sara Reading? My Best Friend's Exorcism

This is a fun post to write and share. It's fun because this story has its own story behind it! Before I dive into My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix, I want to share a funny tale around where I heard about the book and who suggested I read it. To do, let's time hop back to November 2017.

I have always wanted to own a dress by The Pretty Dress Company. I mean, doesn't the name say it all? THEY MAKE PRETTY DRESSES!

Heartbreaker (Emily & Fin)

Valentine's Day kind of snuck up on me this year. You wouldn't know it since I've had nothing but love and Valentine's themed treats on this blog since February started, but it truly felt like it did!

I've been so focused on the wedding ever since the holidays wrapped up (currently debating which donut shop I should commit to for our wedding "cake" and it's now between two and it's SO HARD) that I forgot about my second favorite holiday! Oops!

Red Velvet Cake Truffles

Gather 'round, my little peanuts, as I tell the mysterious tale of the Disappearing Truffles! Half of the batch went to Cody's office and the other half went to Sara's office when, suddenly, they began to disappear! Vanishing in front of our very eyes!

According to an email from Cody, it wasn't even 9:30am and his container was emptying out at a rapid pace! He could not control or stop it!
