Friday Favorites / Happy Halloween!

meganwelker-pumpkinpatch-135Hey guys!! Happy Friday! How fun is it that Halloween is on a Saturday this year? What do you have planned? We’re heading to our friends for a pumpkin carving fun and later the crazy ones who are into scary things are headed to a haunted house. I (megan) am SO not into that stuff but Adam lives for it! Have a great weekend friends!

The holidays are coming up. A post about how to find cheap airplane tickets may be helpful.

I finally upgraded my phone and am the new owner of a fancy iPhone 6s. Now I need a case, loving these.

Fall book list. I have Big Magic up next on my kindle, but I’ve been listening to her podcast every chance I get.

We actually WON a giveaway and recently got these bad boys! We love them and they’re the perfect desk chairs!

Fall foilage map is everything!

Love these beautiful leaf projects.

Haven’t had time to carve a pumpkin? No worries, try these instead!

Mornings Together

“This morning, with her, having coffee.” – Johnny Cash, when asked for his definition of paradise. Mornings have always been our favorite time together. Our schedules are busy, to say the least, so the mornings before we start school and work is our time to really spend together. We’re early risers which is so nice because it gives us extra time to just hang out and watch the Today Show before we have to get ready for the day. Adam usually makes the coffee….and breakfast. Megan is really good at spreading the avocado on her toast but Adam really makes the best scrambled eggs so why mess with that? We were gifted the aaaaamazing automated chemex from our dear friends for our wedding and it’s basically the best thing that we’ve ever received.

Do you and your significant other have a time of day that’s the most special to you?

Best Dressed at the Emmy Awards

I love awards shows. What I love even more than the award show itself though, is the red carpet. Seeing who’s wearing who and what and how dapper all of the men look, it’s so fun! There were so many great looks last night at the Emmys but these are the ones that stood out to me the most…in a good way.

Oh Piper! I love Taylor Schilling and she pulled off that bright, bright yellow so well. I love the interesting neckline most of all.

The Queen Mother lookin fly. Adam didn’t even recognize Cersei Lanister at first! I loved her rocker look and the burgundy color of her dress was perfect for her skin and hair color. Also, I just miss G.O.T SO MUCH.

Black never, ever is a bad thing. Aubrey Plaza rocks it in this sparkly number. I love that it’s elegant with a little sass. bravwel-bestdressed-3

Damn Kerry Washington, damn. This woman knows how to work it. bravwel-bestdressed-4

Lady Gaga just may have been my favorite look of the evening. She’s known for doing such elaborate looks that this fresh, simple look on her looks just so good. And like I said, black is never wrong. bravwel-bestdressed-5

Sarah Hyland is my tie for favorite look because really, this is perfect. bravwel-bestdressed-6Who was your best dressed last night? Or….worst? I have a few that I was like “huh?”

Friday Favorites

IMG_5842What a great (and busy) week it has been. How is it Friday already? Last weekend we were up in Sonoma County photographing a beautiful wedding and sneaking in some wine tasting. More on that soon!

IMG_5878…and this week while Adam was working so hard at school and work I got to sneak away with my Beijos gals for a little work/play trip to Ojai. I’ll be sharing all of that soon too! So much anticipation! What are your plans for the weekend? This is one of my slower weekends until December so I’m going to soak it allllllll in…

My best friend is a makeup guru and I know just about zero about it all. These makeup hacks are great!

I really should make these for Adam. Donuts are the way to his heart.

Open shelving is obviously a thing right now and I’m super into it. How to style them, now that’s something I need help with.

Two of my favorite ladies just announced their new books. I need this one and this one. now.

Oh hello delicious roasted chicken. I need to cook more.

Of course the new iPhone is coming out and I need the rose gold one.

and then, of course, I’ll need a new case. These design love fest for casetify cases are looking mighty fine.

We’re THISCLOSE to fall which means my favorite season, bootie season!! Love this roundup of fall booties!

One of our favorite things to do is to go to flea markets around LA. Our favorite is the Long Beach flea (naturally) and coincidentally it’s this weekend! Hoping for a cool morning with lots of luck! Find all of the other LA flea’s here.

This basically just changed my life. Raise your hand if you’ve been reheating your pasta all kinds of wrong. (hand raised).

Loving this gorgeous fall wedding!

Happy Weekend friends! Hope you stay cool.

Our Wedding / Featured

We are thrilled to finally be sharing our wedding and all of the beautiful details that went into it! I’m so excited to see our big day grace the pages of my favorite wedding magazine, Utterly Engaged (head over to their site RIGHT NOW and pre order your own copy). I cannot wait to get my hands on that puppy and see our wedding in print. It is also featured on Once Wed today, and while I think it’s very far from a “country wedding” as they’re calling it, it’s still fun to see it on there.

I’ll be sharing tips and details from the planning process and our day very soon and can’t wait to share what we’ve learned in the five months of planning a wedding (spoiler alert, planning a wedding is crazy!) The main thing we learned is that having a coordinator is priceless and Beijos Events saved our sanity and helped make our day the best possible. They’re also featuring our wedding day on their blog and I love how they tell the story of our wedding (and used the novel that I wrote the other blog that they didn’t use). Love you Jac!

So so much more soon. I cannot wait to share my thoughts on guest lists, unexpected expenses (“you mean I have to light the parking lot?” yes, yes I did) and dance parties.

All photos by the insanely talented duo that is Brumley & Wells. You guys, so many heart eyes.
