Featured: Brides

Happy Wednesday friends!

Today is a day full of good things! First up, we were incredibly honored to find out that Brides Magazine picked up Kristin & Chad’s Greenwich wedding as one of their featured real weddings. Kristin & Chad had an incredible day filled with centerpieces of peaches, mint & the prettiest flowers you ever did see. They also made sure to give lots of honor to Chad’s Kentucky heritage, so there was sweet tea, biscuits, and drink stirrers with Kentucky Derby references. It’s still one of our all-time favorites! You can see the full feature by going HERE.

Also, like I mentioned last week, I love May because it’s my birthday month and also just because everything really starts to come alive in May. The flowers are blooming, the trees are (finally!) green…and it’s just an awesome time to be alive. And to sit on front porches. And soak in fresh starts. So leading up to my birthday, we thought it would be fun to give one of my favorite things away each week until the big day! This week we’re going to kick it off with a no-brainer: Starbucks of course! You don’t have to have been around the blog long to know my love of the green mermaid! :) But this time it’s for something a little different than my usual grande non-fat latte. You see, Starbucks just came out with these lemon cake pops. And I had one (ok, ok…TWO!) the other day…and they pretty much rocked my world!

So here’s the deal! Just leave us a note in the comment box below & we’re going to pick one lucky winner on Friday to win a $25 gift card to Starbucks….or approximately 12 and a half lemon cake pops! I’m just sayin. And…GO!!

  32. Lelia Marie

    I think I need to start embracing this whole birthday month thing! I never think about my birthday anymore until it is here and then I’m normally working so nothing happens. A month full of cake pops would work for me :-)

  33. Elizabeth Neuffer

    Happy almost birthday. I love Starbucks cake pops and now that I know they have a lemon cake pop, I’m not sure I will be able to resist. I might be stopping by the next Starbucks I find.
