I am a lover of all types of weather, but I am craving me some summer. I want it and I want it NOW. I am really looking forward to going to Oklahoma on Tuesday so I can soak up some sunshine and some 98degree weather. I may be singing a different tune in a week and a half when I am standing outside in the middle of summer in a wedding dress, but I will cross that bridge when I come to it. Hopefully I will be so caught up in love that I wont notice the sweat dripping down my back... right?
But I digress, the point of this post is my summer withdrawals. I found some ahhhhmazing summer inspiration over at Forever21's blog. I just discovered it via This Is Glamorous's blog, and I love it. Check it out:

I love the mixed prints, the colors, the retro big hair, the whole shebang! Another summer obsession of mine are cateye sunglasses, like these from betsey johnson:

or these from tom ford...
and then throw in one of these swimsuits from anthropologie and my summer is ready to go!

all of this summer talk makes me want to listen to the Beach Boys. And I think I will. Nightynight, bisous!

2 weeks to go...

well, the end of my Shotts days are approaching. I am so anxious, nervous, stressed, and happy all at the same time. This time in my life has also made me very nostalgic. My mom asked me to get some photos together for a little slide show we are having at the wedding. So I got out my external hard drive and started sifting through all of my pictures from college and beyond. I have to admit, I got a little teary-eyed at times. After college you lose touch with a lot of people, even though you created such a strong bond in those four years. So, because of my sentimental mood I have decided to share a few of my favorite memories with you...
i really miss crepes! (which is probably why my face looks so round in all of my europe pictures.. hehe. totally worth it.)

so clever. i'm sure i am the only one ever to do that...

one of our very first pictures together. This was taken on the roof of Aspen Coffee Co. (the coffee shop i worked at in downtown Stillwater)

our first thanksgiving together. We used to coordinate outfits.

the pigeons in venice. scary and awesome at the same time. I think this picture was taken literally right after I got off the phone with my mom. I promised her I would stay away from birds. She was afraid of the bird flu.

me, hannah, and kate. We were pretty much inseparable.

giant wood shoe in amsterdam.

random night at Aspen with some of my favorite AspenHeads.

Katelyn, Julie, and Kasey came to visit me in London.

these were some of my bestest friends in college. miss them.

Sometimes I forget that I'm not in college anymore. And then I feel old. College was awesome. I am definitely not one of those people who will forever chase their college life. I mean, I am so glad and thankful for my experiences and I will cherish the memories, but life has only gotten better since then. I am about to marry the man of my dreams, and I wouldn't trade anything for what we have. Oh gosh, I better stop before I get too mushy... So to all of my college friends (if any of you read this) I love you and miss you, and hope life is well for you. And, you should totally all be at my wedding and help me throw the biggest dance party known to man!

my dream honeymoon...

ok, i have found my ideal honeymoon. Finding your honeymoon spot sounds like the most fun thing ever, but it is actually a little stressful. There are so many awesome things to do and see, and it is so hard to pick just one trip! But then I found this hotel, and I am pretty sure we were made for each other. It's outside of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and you have to take a boat and a DONKEY to get the he hotel. AWESOME! It's in the jungle, and it has private beaches, and a spa, and cooking classes by a chef and they only use local and organic ingredients. just awesome. and look at it:

so open and fresh and simple. l-o-v-e. So my dream would be to stay there for 5-7 days, and then head into town, and stay at this loverly home:

and take in all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer...

you can also take a cooking class here, and they take you to a local market to buy all of the ingredients... yummmm....

so we would stay there, at Casa Sin Tiempo, for another couple of days and then head home. Well, as long as I am dreaming, maybe we should stop off in Palm Springs for a couple of nights at the Ace. But then go home. Yep, that sounds just about perfect!

ok, off to bed to have some more dreams! bisous!
