wedding wall bliss

I was SO beyond excited to give Christina and Christian their wedding gift (I practically made them open it on the spot)! Obviously my loved ones all get a fabulous Melanie Linder wedding banners to commemorate their big day, but this time I changed it up and picked the peacock wedding poster. Oh. My. God. it is beyond fabulous. I went with an over-sized Ribba frame from IKEA to really pack some punch with the print and I could not be happier with the way it turned out.

Neither could Christina and Christian, as you can see above. It's already hanging up in their bedroom! Most certainly a perfect match!

(I apologize for the quality and color of the pictures above, but you can get clear on the colors here)

c + c

Heading up the the Green Mountain state to celebrate the nuptials of these two beautiful people (and they are  beautiful on the inside too, AND they are my family - i know you're jealous). You can enjoy all of the road trip/wedding action as it happens over on instagram at mskelleytoyou (or, you'll just have to wait with bated breath until my return). All you need is love.

pretty pickin'

To say the weather lately has been unbearable would be an understatement. Who wants to go stand outside in soupy humidity and pick blueberries, FOR FUN? Exactly; no one. (But yes, let's def run lots of miles, that sounds more reasonable.) Needless to say, our Double Dutch blueberry pickin' date has been cancelled and rearranged quite a few times. And then last night the storm came, the clouds broke and Melanie and I had a good hour, just the two of us, picking the last of the blue crops while enjoying the cool breeze and beautiful sunset (or maybe the just have REALLY great weather in Shoemakersville and we should move there?). Now...what to make with our harvest?

Life's a s'meach!

So, the s'meaches turned out even more spectacular than we ever imagined. The combination of the sweet and spicy was literally to die for and they couldn't have been any easier to make (and messier to eat)! Since there is currently a burn ban around here since it's been so dang hot and dry, we improvised and used the grill which turned out to be the best improv ever because we just made one large batch and baked them over the flames. Thank you Linder's for an incredibly lovely evening relaxing by the pond, stuffing our faces with s'meaches and listening to endless Jerry. xx!

Double Dutch is celebrating Friday with s'meaches this evening! We are so excited about this summer take on your typical s'mores (and ADORE the instructional video). We'll be back with results of the taste test on Monday!

Extra Eye Candy

What I Wore | Ice Age: Continental Drift Screening

Dressing for New York, on any occasion, always sends me into a tailspin (and I'm a seasoned packer). It's this impossible combination of trying to look absolutely fabulous while not actually looking like you tried, in the least. Luckily for me my bff, the ever aamazing Amanda, was born with serious styling capabilities and has a sweet job at the sparkly Sorrelli. I must admit I think this was her best work yet - I was comfortable, glamorous and confident; all things New York.

Tune In Tuesday

Today I head to NYC for the glam premiere of Ice Age: Continental Drift. I am so beyond excited for a big night out in the city with my best Glen and so freaking proud of him and the work he does at Blue Sky Studios - I'm not sure either of us ever though we'd get the opportunity to do this! So basically this song will be on repeat on my mental soundtrack. Check back tomorrow to see how Amanda styled me up for the special occasion (lots of Sorrelli and sophistication I tell you)!

Just a song before you go.

A different kind of fuel for your Friday, since Tuesday was like a bonus Friday this week, and now it's the real Friday, so somehow that all just cancelled each other out. A little one on one time with my Avett Brother boyfriends. Le sigh.
