25th Birthday Weekend!

Hey blog loves...I guess I should fill you all in on my 25th Birthday weekend...I did survive, and have dealt with the fact that I am halfway to 50! Everything started last Monday when my sweetheart sent me a gorgeous bouquet of roses to enjoy all week at my office. 
My good friend Julianne also celebrated 25 early in the week on Tuesday so our best friend Kyndall threw us a surprise birthday party at one of our favorite restaurants and invited other friends, it was such a good time and Kyn really put a lot of thought into everything...our cake was amazing. Julianne and I are going to NYC together in December, so this is what she made had for us!  

 It was perfect!! I got some great goodies from the girls! Friday was my actual Birthday and I woke up to gifts from Mom and Dad, then had to start a busy, busy day! I had to knock out a little community service (court ordered...for speeding...I'm not a real criminal)...then pack up and head north to Fayetteville for my Birthday weekend, and to see Nate weigh in for his fishing tournament. My friend Darrah, and her baby Lynlee went up with me because her b/f and Nate fish together so we decided to make a girls weekend out of it! We did some shopping on the way up, then finally got to our room. We got ready for dinner and met the boys at Outback...not my pick, but what do you do, was only my Birthday!? Lol!! Dinner was good, Nate got me the new Canon camera I'd been wanting, and I was very excited...when I opened it up his friend Tim took it from me and started just taking pictures, I, like I normally do layed my hand on Nate's leg...only to feel something strange in his wasn't wasn't keys...about the time he realized that I had figured out what was about to happen he started scooting down the seat (while I was trying to pull him got down on his knee (yes in the Outback asked me to spend my life with him...
I was sooo very surprised, which is very hard to do! Everything finally sank in yesterday, and I am so, so excited! I honestly can't wait to spend my life with him! I can't wait to start planning a wedding!! I hope y'all are having a great week!! I can't wait to start sharing real wedding planning with you guys!!

Pinteresting Wednesday - Country Chic Wedding Edition

Ok, I do realize I am not engaged...but I am currently obsessed with a "Country Chic" Wedding theme, and Pinterest has fueled this even more! Today I'm linking up with Michelle for...
Simple, but so gorgeous!
I love the lights around the tree

Flowers in Mason Jars! I love it!

I may, or may not have bought a half dozen buckets similar to this at Target yesterday...just in case I needed them for wedding decor...yes, this is a non-existent wedding, due to the lack of a need an intervention!
We will have Pioneer Woman's Sangria in Mason Jars! Keepin' it Classy!
Monograms & Burlap...what's not country about that!? Love it!

I love the wooden hand painted sign! You can't have country without a little barn wood!

I mostly love this because of the cross about them!

Can my non-existent fiance build me my dream barn for my non-existent wedding? Please!
Annnnnnd....this is the reason men hate women! Lol..jk :)  Hope y'all are having a great week so far! It's my Birthday week and Nate started it off great with a gorgeous bouquet of roses.
One of my best friends, Julianne celebrated 25 yesterday, and I celebrate 25 Friday so our poor friend Kyn gets to take us out on a hot date tomorrow night! She told us one of us has to change our birthday, her 2 best friends within 3 days of eachother is a little much! Haha!! Y'all go link up with Michelle today!

Missoni Madness!

Hello, my name is Lacey. I am a label whore, and I have a shopping problem. I should probably change the name of my blog...oh well! I got suckered into the whole Missoni madness today at Target. I had seen a few items online, but really didn't plan on buying much...
Granted, a few of the items I just bought out of excitement, and will either return or re-sell on eBay...I seriously do like several of them, and am having trouble deciding what to keep! I know for sure I love the flats, they were one of the first things I grabbed. I ended up with both tote bags, and love them equally! The makeup bags are all made differently, and they're so functional, I think I'll keep them all...and well...those ladies scarves with be great accessories for!!  Did y'all snag any items today? What are some of your favorites? Any crazy stories from the store?
I hope y'all are having a great week :)

Hey, It's Ok Thursday!

Hey blog loves, I'm sorry I've been MIA this week...I have been insanely busy with work, and our craft website...I promise I'll be back soon to share pics from Labor Day, and some of my recent craft projects! Today I'm linking up with Amber and Neely for It's Ok Thursday!

Hey, it's Ok...

That I have 490,341,134,135 things to get done before Monday, and I honestly have NO CLUE how I am going to get them all done.

That I am thinking about taking on a part time job, on top of my full time job, and our extremely busy craft website.

That I am supposed to be saving money for NYC, and just savings in general...and I'm not...quite the opposite actually...I have been spending like crazy lately and it has to stop!

That I am completely Domestically Disabled, and the likelihood of that changing is slim.

That every Sunday night for the past...oh, probably 10 months...I have started a diet that ended promptly at around 9:30 on Monday.

That I have done NOTHING for the Yard Sale I am having with my girlfriends Saturday..I've been so busy with painting I haven't had the time...granted I've known about it for months...procrastination is a biotch.

To spend more time on Pinterest than any normal human being should...

To be excited that Fall is here so now I can shoot my compound bow...Woo Hoo!

To religiously watch Jersey Shore and Teen Mom, and feel like I've missed something if I miss an episode and have to watch on my DVR

 To have ordered 4 pairs of boots online in the last 2 have to have the perfect pair for Fall, right?

That I'm sitting at work right now blogging...while a huge stack of work to my left is being ignored...guess I better get to it...

Y'all go link up today!
