2012 has definitely been the year of the bridesmaid for me. Four of my best friends made their way down the aisle and into the arms of four very lucky guys, and I was primped, polished and watching each and every step with a big smile and eyes full of tears.
With the last wedding of the summer coming to a close this past weekend, a part of me is excited to get back to weekends of nothingness—not to mention my fingernails are dying for a break from manicures and itching to go back to their old paint-covered ways—but the biggest part of me is so thankful for the past seven months that I’ve had to spend time with old friends who live entirely too far away.
Not to mention, from the second the boyfriend and I met, he has been hauled to all corners of the state for wedding parties, wedding showers, rehearsal dinners and weddings. Good thing he can appreciate a good wedding band. What a trooper.
Three loves in life: built-ins, bay windows, shabby chic decor. Holy moly. Does this apartment makeover fit the bill or what?! It’s amazing how this Design Sponge room was completely transformed with just a few pieces of wood and a killer eye for thrifty furnishings.
My pal, Meredith, and I had such a fun time working on her very first DIY project for my most recent post for At Home in Arkansas magazine. After all, what could be more fun than a killer DIY with a good friend and a yummy glass of pinot noir? Not only did we have an absolute blast, but Mere did a fabulous job and has one heck of a floor mirror to show for it! Pro DIY-er in the making? I think yes…
We are flipping our lids over this great mirror makeover from do-it-yourselfer Cara Wilkerson. But for those of you who think you don’t have the DIY skills to pull something like this off, Cara has asked her Never-Before-DIY friend, Meredith to try her hand – proving that it doesn’t take any sort of DIY know-how to create something great!…click here for the full scoop!
