Happy Friday, lovelies!  What a great first week of 2013 we had here – I hope you did as well.  For me, this week was all about getting ready to have a creative 2013 and spending fun quality time with my boys.

{My Week in Instagrams}

we took charlie to travel town to see the choo choos and also to the zoo.  I particularly loved the flamingos and zebras, while Charlie loved the snakes and “talls.”  He also brushed a goat (how cute is that!?)  I also finished getting a new workspace together and celebrated Oh Lovely Day’s 3rd birthday.  Oh, and we rang in the new year, of course!

{Pins of the Week}

Taking last week off of blogging gave me lots of time to catch up on pinning, and boy was there a lot of pretty to pin!  For all of you who got engaged over the holidays, I definitely suggest you start a wedding board (or several for different ideas, themes, seasons, etc. until you get a focus) and follow my pins for lots of ideas.  Here are some of my favorites from this week.

this floral arrangement has me dreaming of spring weddings
the perfect rehearsal dinner dress (or any fun occasion!)
such a festive cake topper idea
love this bride’s retro style
a really stunning portrait idea
if I had a small wedding, this is what it would have looked like
and something to always remember
