For this Halloween, I dressed as a Southern Belle. Pictured below are some of my friends.. we had two Loofah's, two Hippies, one Black Cat, and of course (me) as a Southern Belle.
So... Guess how much I spent on this dress?
... a big whopping $12 from a vintage store in town! What a steal! :)
What costume were you this Halloween? Were you a sweet Halloween or a scary Halloween character? Scary Halloween costumes always freak me out... even now and I'm almost 26 years old!
Have a Preppy Pink Day and a Happy Halloween! XXO
So my dear friends, It's been a very busy October: I went from Tennessee to Tallahassee in just a matter of 2 weeks. Tallahassee was beautiful. Both days were spent with blue skies and crisp 70 degree weather. I couldn't help but walk through the Florida State University campus and around town to take pictures of some of my favorite places...
The Westcott Fountain: I was thrown into this fountain on my freshman year birthday 11/14/2005.
I still remember what I was wearing: A black dress, all dressed up from my birthday... the bouncer carried me all the way from "Floyds" (at the time) from the strip to this fountain. It was extremely cold and I was more concerned about my dress getting ruined than anything! It's a classic spot on campus... and you can see it all the way from downtown Monroe street.
First Baptist Church: My "home" church in downtown Tallahassee. The past two times I have visited (including this trip), Bobby Bowden was a guest speaker... you never know when he will pop in and speak, but when he does, it's extremely inspiring! He is truly an awesome man of God.
I love this church and I was so thankful to have such a great place to feel at home while I attended school.
Tomahawk Sports Bar & Grill: (Used to be "The Loop") When I was in school. Tallahassee has changed so much, and it's awesome to see how much the school has grown since I graduated back in 2009. From New hotels to new restaurants, it's awesome to see such expansion!
Alpha Chi Omega: My other "Home" away from home. This was my sorority house for four years through college. It's the same place where so many women meet, become friends, grow, and blossom into beautiful young ladies. It's a beautiful brick house with such history that holds so dear to my heart. I love seeing the new sidewalk themes...
Alpha Chi Omega Pumpkins from the new member class... How adorable!
The Lyre Door Knock is simply classic!
So many memories, so many friends who became sisters, and a lifelong bond.
"Together let us seek the heights"
The Old City Cemetery I had to spend some time during this autumn season walking through the cemetery just a few days before Halloween. This was my first time walking though and it was absolutely lovely!
Garnet and Gold Leaves perfect for FSU Fall time.
Ta Ta for Now!
October 6, 2012 was spent in Nashville Tennessee for my friend Kara-Lyn's wedding. It was a cool and crisp day that allowed for us celebrate a beautiful couple's new beginning. This weekend I met a new friend who was also a bridesmaid... Jessica. She & I were practically long lost sisters this weekend. We had a blast, especially helping put together the center piece wine bottles which you will see below in this post...
Here's a quick trip through the wedding:
The Venue: Legacy Farms in Tennessee.
The Table Settings. Chapters from "A Walk To Remember" were glued on the painted black wine bottles. What a Great idea!
My Bridesmaid Hair
Royal Purple Dresses and Silver accessories.
Fall rustic with a touch of Bling!
The Bride and 2 of her bridesmaids :)
The Wobble, Of Course...
Downtown Nashville, TN
It was a fabulous Wedding weekend for Mr. and Mrs. Zak Kingrea.
This past Friday was Kara-Lyn & Zak's wedding celebration at Oasis Church in Nashville, TN. This was a fun pre-wedding party that was movie-inspired. I was pretty in love with this cake:
Zak and one of his friends had a sword fight to keep the crowd entertained...
Kara-Lyn and I. Alpha Chi Omega sisters for life!
And then we had some Red Carpet fun...
A night at the movies was a success...it was a "knock out" of an event to start off the wedding weekend!
As you walked into the Savannah Tea House, you were greeted with the smell of delicious fresh teas packed in mason jars. What a stunning southern wall of charm!
We were then seated at our lovely english-inspired tea table. This is a personalized tea room, so much so that we were able to individually pick out the tea set we wanted to use, and each one was a little bit different...
We enjoyed tiered platters of scones, tea sandwiches, and delightful deserts like chocolate covered strawberries and lemon tortes. Everything was absolutely delicious and the perfect setting for a bridesmaids tea party.
Pictured above are the bridesmaids and the bride in the middle: Kara-Lyn. We stood in front of the Savannah Tea House signature tea pot sign. We couldn't resist, what can I say... it was too cute for words!
The Savannah Tea House is Highly recommended by me if you visit Nashville, TN.
