Bachelor Monday Favorites!

Happy Bachelor Monday! We are officially two weeks from what is sure to be the MOST DRAMATIC BACHELOR FINALE EVER! (And maybe after four times, Nick can finally get off the Bachelor merry go round  he's been on.)

As always, I am planning a finale party and wanted to share some of my favorite Bachelor paraphernalia from around the web.

What do you have planned for the finale? Who are you rooting for? Personally, I'm team Raven because I just love her, but I also don't want her to end up with mubbles-a-lot Nick, so I guess I'm not rooting for her?

Rose's 90th

This past weekend I had the pleasure of helping Sam's aunt throw a 90th birthday party for her sweet mother, Miss Rose. Rose is everything I want to be when I'm 90. She's this tiny little redhead who almost always his a drink in her hand (sounds a lot like me already, haha). I was so honored to be asked to help throw such a monumental event, I couldn't say no!

I immediately got my wedding florist (and friend) LeeLina Martin on board. I adore LeeLina. Working with her is always a dream and I love that she has a unique style all her own.
(She did the flowers for our wedding and Danica's baby shower.) She created some of the most stunning arrangements and helped adorn the centerpieces that were all photos of Miss Rose.

My absolute favorite element of the day though, was the welcome sign. 
I picked up the chalkboard at Hobby Lobby, and using my Cricut Explore Air 2, I turned a boring chalkboard into a custom welcome sign! And then LeeLina added her florals and OMG... ALL the heart eyed emojis!!
I made a few other fun decor elements using my Cricut, like this custom cake topper.
As always, I didn't take nearly as many photos of the final product as I should have but the party was a great success and I think Rose really enjoyed it.

Hands Down

This past weekend I saw my favorite band Dashboard Confessional. I make it a point to see them every time they come to town. Once I even went to Montreal to see them!

Luckily Saturday was local, at the Wiltern. They offer an awesome VIP package that was totally worth the money. 
We ended up right in the front! 
It's safe to say I swooned for a good two hours straight.

We had such a great time at the show on Saturday, that Sunday morning we looked to see if there were any tickets left to the show at the Observatory and there were! So we bought them and went again on Monday!
Chris Carabba will always hold a special place in my heart. His music has been the pulse of so many of my most favorite memories. If you've never seen him, go buy tickets... like now.
