This Sippable Chocolate Mix from the Videri Chocolate Factory that I tried last weekend. I havn't stopped thinking about it since!

I have been on a studs kick recently! These Lauren Conrad Silver Tone Simulated Crystal Camera Button Stud Earrings from her Kohl's accessories collection are so cute!

Wedding Wednesday: Pinterest & WeddingFOMO

Happy Wedding Wednesday! I meant to publish this post earlier this morning, but I decided to stay in bed for an extra 10 minutes instead. It was cold! Okay, today I want to discuss something new that I have started to expiereence since we started planning our wedding - it's called FOMO. 

FOMO stands for "fear of missing out". It's the fear that you feel that you will miss out on something huge if you don't do something or participate in an event. I heard a few of my friends use this term a few times back in college. 

Personally, I had never really had this feeling until I started to experience WeddingFOMO - fear of missing out on seeing something that could be totally awesome for our wedding! 

What do I have to thank for this feeling? Pinterest!

Once I get started looking at wedding themed boards on Pinterest, I can lose hours in the blink of an eye! I keep opening in new tabs, endlessly "liking" pins, and bookmarking pages to look through later on.

I guess I will have WeddingFOMO until we say our I do's (hopefully it will stop once we get married...what if it never ends?!) Here are a few of my favorite wedding pins.

Anniversary/Superbowl Weekend!

Whew! What a weekend! Friday night we were planning on going downtown for First Friday, but it was really cold and all of out friends who we usually meet-up with were staying in, so we made a trip to Fresh Market where I spotted this Ravens Cookie Cake, then came home to cuddle on the couch with Skiwsgaar and watch Lincoln (it was amazing!)
Saturday was our anniversary! We went to the Museum of Natural Sciences where we saw Walter Wally/Mr. Wobbles after his 6 more weeks of winter prediction before we made our way upstairs to the Titanic exhibit. I had seen this same exhibit before in Florida, but I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to go again with Aaron. I have always been fascinated by Titanic and I won't even go into how much I love the movie! 
After we left the Museum we drove over to The Depot and stopped into Tasty Beverage Co.  to pick up beers for Sunday's festivities and Videri Chocolate Factory because they have tastings on Saturdays! The sippable chocolate tasted amazing! Side note - Aaron could not get out of there fast enough (he is NOT a fan of chocolate).

After our play date downtown, we retreated back to North Raleigh for a short nap and to get changed for our anniversary dinner at the Angus Barn! You can read my full review on the Angus Barn on Yelp.

Sunday morning Aaron slept in and I made a Dunkin' Donuts run (Brownie batter donut!) We spent most of the day doing chores, running errands and video chatting with the family. I made a pan of hot pink salsa and then we packed everything up and went to our friend Summer's (she lives in an apartment that is connected to an empty sorority house on the NC State campus) to watch the Superbowl! We had an appetizers and beer pot luck!
Sunday night enjoying some Natty Boh with friends watching the Ravens kill it! There was indoor corn hole, a mattress pile-on, SO MUCH delicious food, and a Beyonce dance breakdown. Go Baltimore!

Hope you had a good weekend!

THISSSSSSS!!! Even though a ton of awesome things happened this week this was THE MOST AMAZING. I'm sorry if #1: you don't watch New Girl and this doesn't mean anything to you and #2: if you do watch New Girl and this is a spoiler, DEAL WITH IT! So. Many. Feelings. LOVE!

These stunning enamel Chevron Studs from Baublebar. Studs are my daily go-to and these bring together a perfectly trendy graphic chevron design, a shimmering stripe of rhinestones and two of my favorite color combinations. I have been eying a few Baublebar items for awhile and keeping a list of my favorites. I might have to make my very first purchase now!
LUSH has released their 2013 Valentine's Day collection. If I have time this weekend to stop by Crabtree Mall I would love to test out the new products. Their Valentine's Day page is really fun too.

I bought this black Women's Ponte Colored Boyfriend Blazer from Walmart on Tuesday night before Aaron and I met our wedding photographer in Clayton (more to come on that soon!) I usually don't find tailored blazers that look good on my body, but this one magically has a perfect cut, easily fits into my wardrobe and I feel fierce when I wear it! FIERCE! It's on sale right now if you're interested in picking one up.

Hope you have a good weekend! Go Ravens!
