Things I love...

I couldn't wait to show what came in the mail today! I ordered these cute little accordian photo books with some of my favorite engagement photo images in them.  I plan to give them as Christmas gifts to my mom, grandmother, Michael's mom, and his two grandmothers.  (I even ordered one to keep for myself!) They are the perfect size to stick in your purse and carry to show to friends.  They even come in a little plastic sleeve so the canvas covers don't get scuffed up.  I'm really happy with how they turned out and I think it will be the perfect little Christmas happy for our moms and grandmothers. 

Soo here is one! They have 6 photos on each side for a total of 12 images!

How fun are they?! 
I ordered them from which is the online photo lab site that my photographer recommended for us to use if we so chose.  The process was super easy, the price was very reasonable, and I got them within 3 days!! Can't beat that!

I have another recent cheap purchase that I have really enjoyed...
Notice my earrings?! They are "M"s! Yes you could say they stand for my soon to be last name but since Michael's name also starts with an M, I like to say that they stand for his full name, first & last :)
It makes me all giddy when I wear them because I almost feel like I'm carrying a little bit of him around with me all day...if anything I'm definitely representing for my man ;)

These are just a few things I'm loving today! Stay tuned for more fun items!


  1. OMG, I am obsessed with the wedding photo books. And I'm sure your and Michael's families will love them as well :) My coworker bought me a "B" initial charm for my upcoming last name. Oh, and I thought of purchasing some vintage hankies with a special note to our immediate family members to have at the wedding. What do you think?

  2. LOVE the idea of the hankies! I'm wanting to get some monogrammed with each bridesmaid's monogram and have it wrapped around their bouquet! Then they have the hankie as a keepsake after the wedding :)
