My new hat and beach bag!! 
I had an awesome bachelorette weekend with my girls. I was completely spoiled by my besties (all pictured on the left). Little Miss Southern Love got me the Marley Lilly hat and kCl & bHj got me a beach bag filled with goodies. So excited my new monogram will be official in less than a month!

Lilly Pulitzer Graduation Caps

As most of y'all know Kyndra (Little Miss Southern Love) and I went to nursing school together. As graduation approached, we started thinking about how we should decorate our graduation caps. We wanted to include some of our favorite things.
We both wanted:
Pink, Lilly Pulitzer, Bows & Future RN, & Monograms
My additions:
Pearls & Tri Delta
Kyndra's Addition:

Our graduation creations came out great! We loved them and got so many complements. I found our caps to be unique from many others. Kyndra and I wrapped the fabric around to show on the underside of the cap, which showed up great in pictures. 
After completing our caps!
Of course we wore Lilly under our gowns!
MK & I before the ceremony. 
I made it on the big screen! (:
Mom and I matched in one of our favorite Lilly prints.
After the ceremony with my soon to be HUBBY! 
I think everyone can tell we are Lilly girls!

Stuff Brides say!

I found a hilarious youtube video. It has been circulating a little bit, but I haven't seen it too much. Hope y'all get a few laughs out of it!

Guilt Free Ranch Dip!

As soon as I saw this idea on Pinterest I had to try it! For me this is the ULTIMATE GUILT FREE DIP!! I love dipping veggie's in ranch, so this will probably be my go to snack from now on. With my wedding only 99 DAYS AWAY... I think this is the perfect snack to munch on.
recipe via undressed skeleton found on Pinterest
I'm not kidding you have to try it! 
TIP: Only add the ranch packet to taste! You just need to have
the right balance. Adding the whole packet is WAY more than you 
will need!

Cookie Exchange

One of my favorite things to do around Christmas is a cookie exchange! There is nothing more fun than having girlfriends over. Not to mention a night filled with yummy treats and delicious drinks. Kyndra @ Little Miss Southern Love and I invited some friends to exchange christmas goodies. Since this was my second year hosting a cookie exchange, I am always keeping new ideas in mind for the following year.

How we do it..
Everyone picks a different holiday treat
anything from traditional to grandma's secret recipe
Don't for get the plate
everyone brings their own plate to collect all the yummies
Set it up
We put all the cookies on a table and stare as we casually cocktail and catch up with each other.
Near the end of the night
We trade by circling around the table with our dish taking some from each tray.

If you have never done a cookie exchange you should definitely keep it in mind for next year! They are always fun and you get to leave with so many wonderful treats. Let me just tell you, I ate cookies for breakfast almost everyday until after Christmas.

Have you ever had or attended a cookie exchange?

Bridal Talk Tuesday- Invitations

Linking up with Elizabeth again for Bridal Talk Tuesday!

Currently my biggest task is picking invites. Right now I pretty much have my mind made up I just need to find the folders. A local printer in the area said he can print the inserts and the main invitation. So I am hunting for navy folders. If you know of any places to check out let me know. Here are some of the stationary ideas that I love!

I really like these layered pocket folder invitations.

I am thinking this is a cute idea for the reply cards.
