April/ May favorite things!

1.    Peonies… any explanation needed there?
2.    L’Oreal Sublime Bronzer. Guys, this stuff is awesome!! It doesn't leave streaks because you don’t need to rub it in! Just spray! I also like it because it doesn't smell like other lotions and it’s not orange.
3.    5 Love Languages by Gary Chapmen. I have read this before but I decided to read it again as a wife! Even though a lot of the information seems to be common sense it is crazy how much I took from it even the second time. I wish every couple had to read it.
4.    Jean jackets! Seriously I think I have had my GAP jean jacket since middle school but they are totally “in” again (wait, were they ever out??) and it has been my go to these months.
5.    My Canon 5D Mark ii. One of my most favorite possessions and it has been by my side these past couple of weeks now that wedding season has begun. I recently switched from Nikon to Canon but I’m never looking back… I am finally starting to get a feel for it and I’m obsessed.
6.    Chobani Flip. MMMmmm… I was a Fage girl up until I tried the key lime pie Flip. It’s like dessert.
7.    Imagine Dragons. This has been on repeat since I downloaded it… It’s the perfect running music. 

This week I am working 4 days at Children and Youth and I have 3 weddings back to back Friday, Saturday and Sunday (ah!) Luckily, I have off Monday to recuperate.

Weston and I are also celebrating 10 months of marriage today WHAT THE HECK??!! I seriously can’t believe it’s been 10 months already. I know celebrating months together is a very newlywed thing to do, but we will take any excuse to go out to eat haha and between our busy schedules date night has been something we have been really intentional with.

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Xoxo Mrs. Parrett

Bridal Shower #1

This weekend was my bestie, Alyssa's {surprise} bridal shower at The Vineyard at Grandview!!!

It has been a long time coming and I am so happy we pulled off the surprise! She had wanted me to take their engagement pictures and so we planned to take them yesterday which is how we got her to the vineyard. I had a white dress for her to change into and all the appropriate undergarments haha. 
With music playing a lot of yummy food AND wine, of course it was a goooood time. We also planned some fun games and watched her open her entire kitchen and bathroom haha. 

Alyssa is one of the sweetest girls you'll ever meet and I'm so happy we were able to shower her as she gets ready to take the next step in her life! Nick (Alyssa's fiance) is Weston (my husband's) best friend... cool huh?? Anyway last year Weston and I got married and this year it's Alyssa and Nicks turn! This time is our lives is so freaking fun and I love that we can share it with these two! 

Here a a few details of the evening!! 

Now it's my sister's turn to be showered! Luckily, it's not a surprise shower so I don't need to worry about keeping it a secret (and I have until July to recuperate from this one haha)! I honestly love planning these things and love that I have these two to celebrate this summer. 

I hope everyone else had a great weekend.
