Hola! My name is Rebecca. I am obsessed with: ♥ Scary Movies ♥ The Tudors ♥ Marie Antoinette ♥ Coach Bags ♥ Blogging ♥ Facebook. The list can go on. I’m a very crafty and creative person, however, I seem to never have the time to do any of that and I wish I did. I have a full time job working as a digital cartographer/graphic artist. I ♥ spending my free time being out at the beach, playing the piano, designing, baking, researching info on my favorite historical characters, shopping, tanning, dancing, painting, singing, watching movies, playing around with makeup. Just being all around girly! I currently live in Florida though I have lived all over the place. Thanks to my mom & dad being in the Army. I have gotten to see places where otherwise I would have only seen in my dreams.

Hi! I'm Vicki - a born & raised New Yorker who is addicted to iced-coffee, tv, scarves, nailpolish and all things pink. I'm dating the greatest guy in the world (and have been for over six years). I've been known to choose blogging over cleaning way more then I should :) I believe that every day is a chance to start over and that sometimes things go wrong and I just need to learn to laugh, especially at myself ... My blog is as random as it comes as my life is filled with many different thoughts, experiences and lessons learned.

I am Amber, I like to dress up everyday, take an unhealthy amount of photos on a daily basis, and I am a Mama to Ethan and Peyton. I never meant to become a blogger, it started as something to do when I was bored. Before I knew it though people were reading and loving my blog. I love that this whole world kinda fell into my lap. I hope you will come over to Sneakers Over Stilettos and see a little more of what kind of adventures we have.

My name is Laura Hernandez. I am a passionate lifestyle photographer based out of Monterey, California where I’m born and raised. I’m married to the most amazing man in the world and we have two beautiful daughters.

In my mind, I am ALWAYS thinking about photography. It never ends. My brain takes snapshots everywhere I go.

I am, regrettably, a bit addicted to social media. I have a constant connection Facebook and Twitter wherever I am. I love Starbucks, the colors pink and yellow, mountain biking, foot massages, listening to the piano and everything vintage. My new addition seems to be blogging.

My photographic passion is people. Couples, families, and children. Nothing brings me more joy than capturing those unforgettable moments that will be treasured for a lifetime.

It’s my hope you’ll grab some coffee, soak in some inspiration, and a glimpse of my life.
I thank God everyday for blessing me with this incredible life.

If blogging doesn't save me NOTHING will... I'm going to be honest about motherhood, parenting, and life.
I'm also going to be sarcastic, sometimes funny and hopefully genuine.
My motto is: I wasn't built for motherhood, it built me. It's a work in progress!
So join me on my journey of rediscovering that woman formerly known as Megan, who now is exclusively Mommy.

I'm Shary and I blog at Shary Loves You. I'm just a 20-something mom trying to enjoy life. I cook, I craft, and I blog. I'm pretty average and my blog documents my adventures. I'm a full-time mom, part-time (yet on-going) student, and somewhat of a Jill of all trades. I currently stay at home with my daughter, Gaia, and keep the peace through crafts and cooking and mini adventures close to home. Big changes lie ahead for us as a pair, and the internet is merely an outlet for me to document it in all of its glory. My blog includes photo updates, do-it-yourself posts with tutorials and/or links and my creations, experiences in education, funny things I find online, recipes and kitchen fun, adventures on my outings, and ideas and posts about my life in general. I am also using it to network and find an audience for my miscellaneous craft shop which will be featured there soon. I do occasionally host giveaways and promote other blogs, but I try to keep everything as genuinely "me" as possible. I participate in blog hops and link ups. I love finding bloggers with similar interests and lifestyles!

WIW: Wedding Edition



Hello lovelies!

I saw that today is my friend Megan's 7th anniversary (Happy Anniversary Megan!!) and she is hosting a What I Wore: Wedding link up in honor of her anniversary. Now, I have to tell you I have never met a woman who doesn't love to show pictures and share the details of her wedding day so of course I am linking up for this fun event!!




I've already shared some details about our love story previously here and here and probably a few other places lol...

Hubby and I got engaged on Halloween when I was visiting him in Mt Vernon (Iowa). Shortly after we got engaged he asked if we could get married on Leap Day (4 months away at that time) and I said ok. We started planning not only our wedding but also moving him from Mt Vernon to Phoenix. It was a crazy time!

I tried on 5 dresses and I knew THE dress was #2.

Dress Number 1

I loved this dress...until I turned around and saw what the huge bow on the backside did for my backside...NO THANK YOU!

Dress Number 2

I wasn't crazy about the neckline on this dress at first, but loved everything else about it.

Dress Number 3

I really wanted a strapless gown and this was the first of the strapless gowns I tried on. Really pretty!

Dress Number 4

I loved this dress, it had major sparkle and I loved it but it wasn't comfortable at all.

Number 5

I loved this gown but for some reason I kept going back to the 2nd gown. Looking at this gown now, I can't honestly remember what I didn't like about it and I love love love this gown now! haha I wanna get married again so I can wear this one!

Ultimately I picked gown 2 and I loved it and still love it.


Thanks Megan for hosting such a fun link up!!

Dirty Secret Saturday



Mom2MemphisandRuby

Welcome to another edition of Dirty Secret Saturday. This is a linky party just for you. To get all those secrets off your chest. It can be funny, it can be heatbreaking, it can be real. It just has to be all yours. We want all the dirt. All that we ask in return is you give us some bloggy love, and share this button on your post. Then let all your friends via Twitter and Facebook know, we are partying it up over here!

Your hosts are:

Megan from Absolute Mommy

Lena from Mom 2 Memphis and Ruby

and Me,A Lil Dash Of Diva

Let's get down to business shall we...


Ok, here it is...I have learned that I can't stay on top of my house, laundry and working out and blog on the same days. Seriously, I have been a terrible blogger the last couple of weeks and it's because I have been staying on top of all my chores and laundry and working out. Plus just spending time with my family instead of being online. Which leaves me no time for blogging. So I'm trying to get a system in place that will make it better to manage all these things! haha

I can't believe I am admitting this, but I haven't put makeup on in days. Not a bit of makeup at all in days. Normally I don't leave the house with at least gloss, blush and mascara but I haven't felt like putting even that on when I go somewhere. It's been super hot already and I don't feel like having anything more on me than I absolutely have to! haha

We knew this one was coming...I'm ready for my long hair again. The short hair is driving me crazy. So yep, time to grow it back out. lol My daughter wants her long hair back too so I guess we are both growing it back out now. ;)

I don't know if I've 'confessed' this before or not, but I wear my crocs out of the house sometimes. GASP! I know! Turn me in to Stacy and Clinton...no, really! Please?! lol I have plantar fasciitis in one of my feet and literally the only pair of shoes I own that helps it to not be super painful to walk is my crocs. So if I'm having a particularly bad flare up I will wear nothing but my crocs...everywhere.

Come link up with us and spill your Dirty Little Secrets!
