Busy season...so I'm IPhoning it in!

Do you get the title of the post? I'm phoning it in...via my iPhone! I'm not going to pull the "I'm so busy" card, because that's frankly so annoying and people totally overuse it. I'll just say I've got plenty to do these days and I'm grateful. Stressed, but grateful :) To make up for a lack of time to prepare a REAL post (although I've got some on the back burner), I thought I'd update you guys as to whats been going on. Topics include things normally found on this blog, so it's not that far fetched:

Weddings
Events
Food
Cute babies
Engagements
Pumpkin

Without further ado...here's a few weeks in review...via iPhone:

I attended Charlotte Fashion Week's Bridal Couture Night as a guest of Say Yes Carolina. I do Social Media work for this wonderful online resource that focuses on all things Charlotte Bridal! 
Check out our seats, we were literally VIPs. It said it on our tickets. 



I saw so many beautiful gowns, worn by many beautiful ladies!



I've got a ridiculously fun wedding later this month that I've been yammering on about for awhile...you might remember it as the "Pink and Gray Chevron" affair. The bride and I had a big status meeting last week and let me just tell you that the status currently stands as:  Extra Fabulous.



There will be no shortage of pink tassel garland from Flair Exchange used at this Pink and Gray Chevron Affair.  Hit up this site immediately for all things flair-tastic...or before my bride buys everything on the site, whichever comes first :)



There's been a bit of chill in the air, which brings me to some of my favorite things for the fall season:

Soup: I made this spinach, white bean and turkey sausage soup that is perfect for a chilly night. 
Recipe coming to this blog near you shortly!


One of my favorite things about colder weather, and a reason why I need a change of seasons, is my boot collection. The first boot wearing experience of the season is always extra special, and here's your peek into mine. I know you are honored to play an important role in this annual occasion:



Up next is Pumpkin Coffee with Pumpkin Creamer. And NO, it's not too much pumpkin because that's not even a thing. You can never have too much pumpkin- just get that in your head and everything will work out just fine.
NOTE: Trader Joe's Pumpkin Coffee smells like a pumpkin patch and tastes like Thanksgiving. 




Speaking of the chilly air, how about the changing colors of the leaves on the beautiful NC trees? My bride Allyson picked her ceremony spot wisely and is getting married under this gorgeous autumn colored tree this weekend. I can't wait to see her rustic and elegant wedding come together! And then I can't wait for us to continue our friendship because frankly, we just click. Right Alley?!




This past weekend as I coordinated the very sweet Trish and Andrew's wedding. I can't wait to see more photos and share them on the blog, but for now, my iPhone shots will have to do! 




Two of my previous wedding couples attended this wedding, and it was so fun to see them! Misty from the fab Misty and Jared wedding was even a bridesmaid this past weekend! Hi Misty!



Trish and Andrew served delicious red velvet cupcakes instead of cake, and I took a few home. One of the perks of the job after working a 12 hour day on your feet is relaxing on the couch with a yummy cupcake (or two):



Speaking of happy couples, my double cousin Lauren, who has been featured prominently on this blog got engaged over the weekend! Check out her mega watt grin below! Have you ever seen a smile that big?! Congratulations to Laur and Patrick, I love you!




I think it's cute baby time ...yup, it's about that time. One of my co-workers Tina brought in her absolutel precious baby Emery and I basically hoarded him the whole time. We're boyfriend and girlfriend, and everyone knows it. He is a snuggly little guy with the prettiest eyelashes I've ever seen! Just look at us, don't we make a darling couple?


                                             



                                            

In other related cute baby news, my niece has actually gotten cuter, as if that's possible. Here's Brooke wearing a Minnie Mouse Halloween shirt to "pwe-school" (as she calls it). Side note the shirt is from Tarjay and it was an excellent purchase - shout out to myself for knowing a solid purchase when I see one. Brooke loves it and I think we can all agree, she looks like a straight-up fashionista with a festive holiday spirit. She's also recently informed me that she likes "Dwesses" more than pants, which pretty much seals the deal that she's' my mini-me and favorite person. 


                                     

In final baby news, I got my own little baby this weekend...a brand new MacBook Pro laptop to replace my "heavy as a freaking brick" PC. Yes, I went to the dark side and am fully immersed in all things Apple. My new laptop (aka BFF) is named Melvin, after the kind gentleman named Melvin who sold me the computer. Clearly he did a damn good job as I'm currently typing this very bog on a laptop named after him. I see many happy memories between Melvin and myself. XOXO Melvin! 


                      

That's all for now from my iPhone! I'll be back later this week with another post, and maybe some additional wedding photos from this past weekend. 

Now on to my next task on the To-Do List...SLEEP!
