11 unrelated things

1.  my big fat gypsy wedding.  have you seen it?  you can find me watching it with my mouth wide open.  and my eyes as big as platters. can i just say, i am so glad there are subtitles.  i'm so very confused and intrigued.  please someone give me a tutorial.


2.  storms.  florida storms, they are the best.  last week i was chillin with my mom and we were all YAY!  There's a storm!  Let's grab a snack and watch it on the back porch.  God totally shows off in Florida Storms.  Love the sound, and sight.

3.  my jewelry box got a whole lot cuter this week.  Thanks to Jen HoodenPyle & Oajules

4.  we went to our friend britt & matt's wedding on palm beach this weekend.  And everything was stunning.  But beyond that it never lost the meaning of the day.  It's easy to get lost in details, and while I can say every last detail was perfect - the true meaning behind the day was never lost.  That's tough to do!  You know deep down in your bones when you're witnessing true love - and it is such an honor!  Seeing two people perfect for one another become ONE is profound.

5.  The pastor mentioned words that they'll need to know throughout their marriage - and I was struck that the first he mentioned were these 5 words.  i'm sorry.  I was wrong. how true.

6.  Jess and her husband Dave lent us their house for the weekend.  I love their casa!  We felt right at home... except for the fact that their home is a gazillion times more comfortable and beautiful than mine.  gotta work on that.

7.  i just finished writing a few of my thank you notes.  and this exercise always leaves me feeling good.  it's gotta be good, downright healthy for the body to exercise thankfulness.  speaking of which, i wrote on my other blog about thank you notes.

8.  the beach surely cures whatever may ail me.


9.  I was a garbage picker last night.  i aint ashamed to say.  I spotted some wire rimmed bins and knew I needed them for my office!


10.  I still love Emily Maynard.  Anyone watching the bachelorette?  I look forward to Bridget's updates, in fact on tuesday mornings, it's my first website of the day.

11.  I meet Jenni this week!  i know you're jealous.

    I'm about to sit down and write a bunch of thank you notes, too. It's important to let people know you appreciate their thoughtfulness.

  3. love your pics of palm beach! I miss it already and I was there just 2 weeks ago :) Looks like you guys had a fabulous time!! Lets talk about my big fat gypsy wedding.. I think we share those expressions while watching. My husband can't even tear his eyes away. I really hope it goes on for 10 more seasons.

  6. The Bachelorette- umm yes!!

    And I just have to say, I was trying to explain the severity of the situation on that Gypsy Wedding show to my husband and he was SO confused. I said "they get married on a stage on their front porch and they do poems over loud speakers". He was like whaaaat??

    Hilarious.

  10. I watch My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding all the time, I can't stop myself. It is so different! I constantly have my mouth wide open and eyes wide often watching that show.
    I also LOVE the Bachelorette! I am in love with Emily, she is such a doll :D

  11. My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding?! Appalling right! My best friend is one of the make-up artists for the show and she says it's worse in person! LOL!
    LOVE those 5 words. Very simple and TRUE. ( : And of course I am loving watching sweet Emily every week. She is a living doll! Hope she finds the one.

  12. So jealous you're meeting Jenni! Post photos please!

  13. my big fat gypsy wedding is INCREDIBLE!!! I never miss it. They have an american version of it now too - unbelievable that these people exist in real life. I love the Bachelorette too - she is so darn cute and adorable. Monday's episode finally got me out of the "yawn" stage, especially with that jerk saying her child was a compromise (and I think he said HE was a gypsy!!??) gorgeous pictures for this post as always!

  14. I quoted from 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding' in my Ph.D. thesis.
    True story :-)
    Do you guys have the British version? If so, I'm not surprised you needed subtitles - I think sometimes they would have helped over here as well!

  15. Ugh! I love all the pics from Palm Beach! I miss Running over the bridge from WPB and onto the palm lined roads!

  16. Gorgeous photos! And I absolutely love your post on Thank You notes. I always love a thoughtful, handwritten note.

  17. Ooo, such lovely photos... I adore beach storms as well!

  18. I'm definitely watching the Bachelorette! I live in Charlotte, and we all watch it obsessively to see where they go and what they do here. Emily is sweet but a tiny bit boring, which makes poor TV but gives her an infinitely better chance at finding love.

  19. i want those yellow and white striped umbrellas bad. and your pretty long dress.

    and thanks for the link, friend! you know i love me some bachelorette. probs goes without saying?

  20. I totally watch My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and find it absolutely appalling, but gloriously entertaining at the same time.

    I'm SO jealous of your Florida storms! They're absolutely incredible and we don't get them often enough, in my opinion, where I live.

    The beach looks absolutely stunning. Enjoy it girl!

    As for The Bachelorette, it's definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. I just LOVE Emily and hope this time it works out for her.

    Have fun meeting Jenni! I follow her blog and she looks awesome.

  21. Love your list Sarah! I think I would be scared in a FL storm! And YES, so glad Emily Maynard is the Bachelorette this season. I must admit I'm watching about 70% for fashion, and 30% for the "love".

  23. I love the Bachelorette. I am a sucker for those shows...and I always find my bachelorette/bachelor favorites..and then become disapointed if they don't get a rose. But I've usually been right on who will end up together! :)

    What a fun weekend! :)

  24. Your pictures look gorgeous! It looks like you had a wonderful weekend!

  25. always on the edge of my seat Monday nights watching Emily. I just adore her and the racecar driver together (the skater too!)

    I haven't seen the beach in ages. I'm craving the salty ocean air! xo Jacqlyn

  28. You looked GORGEOUS at the wedding that you and your hubby went to. The pattern on your dress is so pretty.

    And the words that the pastor told them to remember..powerful. It IS true!

    Those umbrellas are so cute.

  31. i don't even know what to say about my big fat gypsy wedding. do you watch the UK one or the american one? it's slightly terrifying and awesome at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my gosh how fun!! I cherish each of the bachelorettes with my besties and have a few left to go:)
    And I never watch bachelor or bachelorette but making an exception for Emily Maynord. Love that girl:D

  33. Sounds like you had such a blast Sarah! I ADORE those steps. Such a cute idea... Hope your week has been a good one so far!

  34. I am OBSESSED with my Big Fat Gypsy Wedding... People like that ACTUALLY live in America? Really? I want to drive by their houses and see their big glittery parties but I don't want them to know I'm a peeping Gorger. (I hope that's how you spell it)
