I'm baaaaack!

It's true! I made it to the West Coast & back!
Did you miss me? Pssh, how could you have with all fabulous ladies that filled in for me while I was away. I got to sit back & relax while on vacation thanks to some seriously amazing guest posters.
Can we give another round of applause to: Sarah for showing us a new pin-to-real-life success story, Annie for totally bringing it warm & fuzzy style, Rachel for putting together a perfect sight-seeing outfit + a giveaway! (enter here), Jessica for proving how fun a "Canadian tuxedo" can be & Shelby for rocking florals + leopard like a BOSS!
Please go check them out & pop into their blogs to thank them for all their hard work!

I've gotta say, planning on getting back to work from vacation on a Wednesday is both good & bad... 
Bad because my inbox is FULL & everyone else is already at top speed - no Monday to play catch up!
Good because it is almost the freaking weekend again - thank the Lordy for 3 day work weeks!

While I regain some speed & unpack my hot mess of a house, enjoy these iPhone snaps from my Oregon adventures!
(surely you're following me on Instagram... right!?)

Row 1: flying over the desert // admiring the peaks of the Cascades from the plane // pretty prints I brought with me - the 2 on the right are Rent the Runway
Row 2: Portland is brimming with beautiful rose blooms // old school photo booth at the Ace Hotel // crushing hard on all things PDX
Row 3: photo booths every where - dangerous! // the Ace Hotel spoke to my inner hipster wannabe! // my handsome date for the rehearsal dinner
Row 4: putting together wedding florals // my wedding day look // Ty's sister is married (!!!) - what a seriously stunning bride!
Row 5: the getaway car, Ty's grandfather's classic Chevy // exploring Portland // my 1st Jonathan Adler experience... I almost swooned!
Row 6: blading through Bridgetown // Ty treated me to his personal brewery tour // One of Ty's favorite breweries: Deschutes 
Row 7: baby Christmas tree farm // Silver Falls State Park // we got lots of baby Tyler photos for our wedding slideshow while hanging out at his parents house... I die of cute!
