Oh Hey Friday!

When I found out Five on Friday, my favorite linkup, was taking a break, I was pretty bummed. Thank goodness for Karli and Amy's new linkup, Oh Hey Friday! Don't let the farmer thing fool ya- these women are stylin' and profilin'.  Let's do this thing, shall we?!

1. I'm still engaged. What what?! 
In case y'all somehow forgot, John and I are engaged! It's officially been a week now, and I still can't believe it. So weird, in the best way possible. Cannot believe I get to spend my life with this man. 

Ow oww! Hottay! 

2. Our proposal was featured on How He Asked!

If you love proposals like I do, you need visit this site! Like, yesterday. 

I was just a little excited to see our proposal up on How He Asked! It's pretty much the story I told here, but if you're new around here, it could be a good introduction to how John and I met, since that was part of the post! 
Just a couple of HowHeAsked's tweets about us! So glad everyone gets to see John's thoughtful proposal!

3. I died and went to preppy heaven. 
Maybe you noticed one of those tweets from HowHeAsked tagged Lilly Pulitzer... The people at Lilly Pulitzer noticed, too. Yep, that's right! They retweeted that tweet to their followers, and then FOUND ME AND GAVE ME A SHOUT-OUT. 

Then, because my life wasn't already made enough, this happened:

Lilly Pulitzer follows me on Twitter. Excuse me while I squeal forever and always. 

I've been a Lilly lover since I was introduced to the brand, because it is the epitome of everything I love: southern, stylish, sweet, sassy, and colorful. To get well wishes from them was pretty priceless! Lilly Pulitzer times infinity, basically. 

4. An inner dilemma on blogging wedding stuff. 
I'll be honest: if any of the blogs I follow starting posting wedding stuff, I'd love it. For example, Robyn at Living Colorfully is engaged, and I adore her blog all the more now! I've always loved hearing about love, proposals, color schemes, tablescapes... All that good stuff! However, I know not all people are wedding fanatics like I am, and I don't want people to get annoyed with my blog if I post too much about it. I know it's my blog, and I can write whatever the heck I want, but I don't want to seem obnoxious, ya know?!

5.  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Holla! 
It's here, y'all! Yay for the biggest Nordstrom sale of the year! Maybe later I'll post my favorites, but for now, I'm just scrolling through like a mad-woman. Hope y'all have a fab weekend- it's a busy one for this girl!

  5. Congrats on your engagement! I'm sure it's been a full week of bliss. So amazing. I love love! That's so cool that your engagement story was featured on How He Asked! I've never heard of that site, but now I want to take a gander. So awesome that Lilly tweeted you AND followed you! Gosh, it's just been an awesome week for you!

  6. Oh my gosh! So... you're pretty much famous now!! ;) LOL!

  7. congrats on the engagement and LP follow!!

  8. I understand how you feel about blogging about your wedding planning, I had some hesitations with it too at first, but the heck with it - you're only engaged once! Share whatever you like, I know I'll be interested :)

  9. Congrats!!! I loved your engagement post, but how exciting that it is on How He Asked!! I will have to go check it out. I don't even have a boyfriend but I am frequently caught reading that website (#guilty). Congrats on the Lily retweets and follow as well! I realize I am just one reader, but I am putting my vote in for tons of wedding planning posts ;).
