A Hooker Wedding

This past weekend was one of my best friends' wedding.  It was seriously so much fun!  From the rehearsal dinner, to getting ready that morning, to dancing the night away.

I promise I do have plans to recap my own wedding on here; I've just been anxiously awaiting our wedding pictures. So until then, this week's Wedding Wednesday...

Making Our House a Home: Mantle Makeover

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #LoveAmericanHome #CollectiveBias






Y'all know my love for Walmart.  I've mentioned it several times before in this little space of mine.  Well, Walmart is the store that has it all, and they're now including a line of American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand to their collection.  You guys, this girl is thrilled



My new husband and I are still moving into our house, as in there are still boxes.  Lots and lots of boxes.  But I am beyond excited to decorate for fall for the first time. The rest of the house may be slowly coming together, but with the help of American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand we'll have a head start making this house feel like a home.

I talked about how our living room is becoming my favorite house in the room earlier this week, and our mantle makes me love it even more.  I mean y'all...I get excited every time I look at our mantle, and our couch is directly in front of it...so that's a lot.  

Now that we've fixed up our mantle, our house is feeling homey-er than ever.  And the best part?  Every time I walk into the room it's filled with the most wonderful (and exceptionally fall-like) smell.  My two favorite fragrances?  Pumpkin Apple Harvest and Banana Walnut Bread.  Y'all...take my word for it these are heavenly.  Actually, don't take my word for it; try it out yourself.  Your house will thank you (well if it could talk of course).




During our engagement I often dreamed about making our first house really feel like home, and filling it with memories that'll last a lifetime.  And while we've already begun to make memories (in our almost 2 months living here), we are just now achieving the "home" feeling.  

It's honestly surreal to be making a home with my dream man.  



Not to mention, nothing makes you feel cozy, and like fall has arrived than lighting some candles and pumpkins.  All the pumpkins.  

Fill your home with fall this season with one of the wide varieties of American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand available at Walmart.

Thanks to American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand, Thomas and I are ready for our first fall in our new home.  How will you be getting ready for fall this year?

Making Our House a Home: sneak peek

Our living room is quickly becoming my favorite room of the house.  It's been the room we've focused on most since we spend the most time there.  And if you ask me, it's been time well spent.

Although we've made a lot of progress, I'm not quite ready to do a whole reveal just yet.  But I did want to share with y'all our gallery wall that I have totally fallen in love with.  It really makes our house feel more like home.  See for your self...

Seriously, it just gives me all the heart eyes.  And I already have some changes in the plans.  I've spray painted the wooden frame (as seen on snapchat), and am trying to find the perfect thing to put on the white shelf.  Not to mention the picture frame that doesn't have a picture in it yet. #fail But I'm waiting until we get our wedding pictures back to make anymore big changes.

So the reason, I still had to spill the beans despite being finished?  The most adorable print from Ashley @ That Southern Mama, who recently opened her own Etsy shop (Mama Designed).  Her print couldn't be more true, and I love displaying it our home.
