TyBEE, TyBEE, Here we come!!!

Ok y'all so one of my best girlfriends is getting married in September! I am so very excited for her and have been planning what I hope will be a fabulous bachelorette weekend!

We're going to Tybee Island, GA! I'm so excited! Although I've been to Savannah before, I've never actually been to Tybee ... So OF COURSE I'm excited to go explore what looks to be the cutest beach town! My friend and fellow planner has been poking fun because of the way I pronounce Tybee... Apparently I put the emphasis on the BEE instead of the TY... Hence the title of this post! :)

Well y'all, after some EXTENSIVE searching for the perfect weekend rental, I found The Mermaid Cottages and FELL IN LOVE. I'm not kidding. I want to stay at each and every one of the houses they have listed. Take a look... You will too. I promise.

Everyday I've been checking these cute beach houses out and getting inspiration for my little guest room (and my den, dining room, and porch). Priorities... priorities... guest room... guest room....





These are just a few of these adorable rooms... There are so many more, but Bryan's calling for dinner! :) More soon!

Back to reality... Well the virtual reality?

So as you all know, I FINALLY became gainfully employeed (after months of job searching) about 4 months ago. Well, as of Monday, I officially have 2.5 days left at my office... I have resigned from my job! I can't believe it... Part of me is really excited to find something that better fits my personality and another part of me is TERRIFIED to be unemployeed ... AGAIN!

Either way it means I am BAAAAAAACK in the blogging world! And man, does it feel good! I am excited to reconnect with my own blog, but SO EXCITED to reconnect with some of the blogs I use to read and follow!

So that's what I've been doing (well, that & procrasinating on laundry) this morning... Catching up on my blogs!

I'm not sure if any of you follow The Lettered Cottage... But Layla has some GREAT ideas and is so fun to read! :)

I just came across a post that is all about updating your house on a SMALL budget... Updates in the house? Small Budget? Sounds PERFECT to me!

Speaking of 'updates' .... I NEED one in our guest bedroom! In fact, I'm in the mood for some thrifting now! Here's to hoping for GREAT finds! :)

Southern Delicacy

So as y'all know by now, I am a Southern girl and very proud of it! I am also a HUGE lover of food... Especially SOUTHERN FOOD!

Now I don't know if any of you have had the pleasure that is a Krispy Kreme doughnut, but if you ever get the chance to try a "hot & now" glazed you may never feel the same about "other" doughnuts after you have had one of these. I have been known to have a "hot & now" for both a breakfast appetizer and dessert. They are also the perfect guilty pleasure treat for those days when nothing else will fix your woes.

Well y'all Krispy Kreme merged with another great Southern product Cheerwine to create a DELICIOUS (and limited time) doughnut...





They only sell these tasty treats in grocery stores in North Carolina and we've been searching for weekends to find Krispy Kremes newest signature doughnut... And this morning we had success!

And I must say... GREAT IDEA Krispy Kreme and Cheerwine! I'm impressed with the tastiness that these two Southern 'delicacies' created together!

Fresh flowers... Fresh smells!

One of my absolute FAVORITE things are fresh flowers!

Yesterday, I told y'all about the baby shower we hosted for my friend Marsha... We decided to use all white flowers and I was the lucky one who brought home the arrangements!

Since it's been several days, I had to rearrange and recut the ends, but they still smell so wonderful and make me smile everytime i walk into the house!! Now... Where to put them?!?

Loving baby shower 'decorations'!

One of my best girlfriends, who I've definitely talked to y'all about before, is having a baby boy in August! And I am quite the excited 'aunt'!!!

This past weekend we threw a baby shower for Marsha and I am absolutely loving the way that we 'decorated'! I for one am not huge on generic decorations so I really tried to think hard about how to create the perfect baby shower setting! We decided to do a semi-vintage light blue, white, and chocolate brown theme.

What do you think?
