Nancy Grace: The former criminal prosecutor and opinionated legal commentator is expected to keep hosting her show on HLN while she competes on the show.

Ricki Lake: The actress-author-birth advocate is having a great year; she recently announced her engagement and will launch another talk show next year.

Rob Kardashian: Kourtney, Kim and Khloe's younger brother works as a talent manager but occasionally steps into the limelight to appear on his family's shows.

Hope Solo: Filling in the other pro athlete spot is the beautiful, heavily endorsed goalie of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team.

By the time we get back from the beach this, baby will be in full bloom! Sunflowers are my favorite! :) Until next week...PEACE.


Kanye? Or Jay Z? maybe a lil bit of both? :) pretty awesome.
I really love this lavender rose cropped jacket from Newport News!

Purchased this retro pair of earrings from a vintage antique shop in California a few months back! Totally wearing it to my friend Mike's wedding in NY at the end of August.

I was having a lovely quiet Chinese lunch on Tuesday while my car was getting looked at during my work lunch break. Little did I know I was about to pay $170 for a new battery, oil change & fluid check.

Awwwe. Boo always knows when we are leaving him. He followed me around all morning!

Onto the 2nd wedding on our list for August! (as you know this is our 3rd wedding in general as we attended our 1st one in June!) Tomorrow we are off to North Carolina for Kelly Lewis' wedding until late Sunday night! The Lewis family have been our close family neighborhood friends since elementary school! Our parents are the bestest of friends! And us "kids" continue to reunite every so often w/o missing a beat of course! SUPER exciting! The area that we are heading to is Wilmington/Sunset Beach. PUMPED! I can't wait to see everyone, including my family as my parents just retired into their brand new house down there! Steve & I will be checking out their brand new digs (built from the ground up) for the 1st time! While we are in town we will also be checking out downtown Wilmington, soaking up the sun on the sand & bringing out our inner "dorks" (as some would say) by sight seeing OTH's "clothes over bros/karen's cafe" & the rivercourt! I really can't wait for that part! Woo! Hoo!



it's rare that i post an extremely "raw" before photo.... but it's just too funny not to share! LOTS of teasing to get this fabulous beehive hair do! :)

CRAZY!!! :)


Sooooooooo Jacob & Amy's wedding was this weekend! What a BEAUTIFUL day all around! I cant wait to share my photos! Down below is a quick sneak peak! all took place in their backyard. Chandeliers, white Christmas lights, vintage/antique decor, comfy seating areas, an in-ground pool, wild flowers, garden esque everything & more! This song by Colbie Caillat played as us bridesmaids & the stunning bride walked down the aisle! LOVE! Just imagine it...we all walked from the back gate, along side the pool and ahead towards the bird bath on the opposite side of the yard! The sun was peaking through the clouds & all you could hear was the birds chirping!

Snakes...not a fan. Esp in dreams...last night i had a dream that had several snakes in it! If i ever remember a dream I tend to search the meaning of it online to see what i can find. Of course it depends on which link or website you click on as sometimes there are different meanings...this is the one i came across the most...

Snakes come to those who are in the process of transformation. Change, squared. In other words, if you are having snake dreams, get ready for a shake up. And this is GOOD. Change is scary, threatening; it can come upon you like a snake in the grass, biting you when you least expect it. Change can come in many forms and colors, and sometimes requires a huge swallowing of information (like the snake when eating), or a shedding of skin and with that, sense of trust in the divine (like the blind snake when shedding skin).

As a positive symbol, snakes represent healing, transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive change.
