Music Monday – Jamiroquai

The month of August has me more exhausted than I have been in a long time, but I’m having so much fun that it’s hard to even care. I’ve spent the last two weekends at some impressive bachelorette parties in Nashville and New Orleans, and I can honestly say that I didn’t know my body still had it in me to party that much for consecutive days and consecutive weekends. And although I’m typing this post with eyes half closed, I can’t wait for the weddings that are just around the corner so I can get down with these ladies all over again and celebrate my friends’ special days :)

So in the spirit of gearing up for rounds three and four, I thought I would dedicate this Music Monday to one my favorite get down tunes by one of my favorite get down bands. I don’t about anyone else, but it’s impossible for my limbs to sit still while listening to Jamiroquai.

I hope this inspires you to throw on some dance tunes this week and boogie your Monday blues away!

Also, who else thinks of Center Stage when they listen to this song? God, I love that movie, and I don’t care who knows it.



Music Monday: The Long Haul

I’m pretty sure I’ve posted this song on our blog before, however today it is due for a second post. Today is Tyler and I’s two year anniversary and this was the song we danced to on our wedding day (performed by Steppin In It themselves)! I cannot believe all that has happened in two years. It’s gone by so fast, with many joys, changes and challenges along the way…. but I’m sure in it for the long haul <3 This song takes me back to the shores of lake superior dancing in the grass with my new hubby… for all you Michigander’s out there I hope that this song can bring you somewhere just as happy as it brings me. Happy Monday.



My first try at the crop

First off, man does it feel good to be posting again. I have a laundry list of excuses… one of which being I haven’t had one free weekend in July… but I finally made myself find the time to sneak off at one of my best friend’s (Alekzandria – check out her blog here)  rehearsal dinners back home on Sugar Island near Sault Ste. Marie Michigan. I had purchased this crop top to wear with a mini skirt for her bachelorette party and when I saw it hanging in the closet next to my favorite skirt I knew they were meant to be worn together. I love how the pleated long maxi skirt elevates the crop top and makes the fun bold pattern and style more sophisticated. It was fun to mix up the a-line silhouette dress I usually wear to rehearsal dinners.

You can see the tent for the reception in the background of this last photo – for pictures of the actual wedding you MUST check out her photographer’s website here. The wedding was so beautiful and phenominal… and these pictures definitely do it justice.

Have a great weekend. Cheers to August!
