Friday Pretties!


You’ll find all of today’s Pretties in the guest post I did for Claire (@realnutritioncg)! She is kind enough to fill in for me one of the days I’ll be on vacation so I was more than happy to sub for her.  Go check it out!! They’re my favorite Pretties ever, I think.  Here’s a sneak peek:

But it’s more than just dresses. Seriously, go look!

Now.  As some of you may know Monday is my 2nd wedding anniversary. 🙂 Yay! Great! But I need some present help, please. 

The modern wedding gift for two years is china….Um, we didn’t even register for any china so we definitely don’t need/want any now.  The traditional gift is cotton…. so roll with that and give me some ideas.

Now for the twist – we celebrate “Alphabet Anniversaries”; each year is themed by the corresponding letter of the alphabet.  For example, last year was “A” – we went to dinner in Annapolis at a restaurant called AquaTerra.  Therefore this year is “B”.  So I need a B/Cotton gift! See? It’s a little difficult.

Or maybe we can just stick with cotton? After all, next Sunday we leave out of Baltimore on a Boat headed for the Beaches of the Bahamas….. overkill on the “B”?! Either way, give me some ideas!!!! Thank you.

Have a fantastic looooong Labor Day Weekend! xoxo

    I would get him a super-soft, ultra-luxurious cotton button-down or polo shirt. One that is so soft & comfy you want to steal it from him & wear it around the house!!
