scenes from the week: new jersey [part one].

this weekend was crazy. for those of you that don't know, i grew up in new jersey. my family is italian (read: lots of family). this can make our trips a bit overwhelming, trying to find time to see as much family as possible.

but this time, we went with a purpose. my baby sister cousin alexis is engaged!

we love each other a lot. but we didn't mean to match. honest.
so, we threw her a party. well, her mom did. i helped.

this isn't even party decor. it's just their yard. amazing, i know. 

and now, for the cupcakes. the most amazing cupcakes i've ever tasted. and i tried all the flavors, so i can make blanket statements. we can't take credit for these, though. alexis's adorable best friend made them all.

and then, there's this guy.

stay tuned. there's a lot more where these came from.



  1. I love this, and I love you!

  2. Looks so pretty!! Love all the flowers. And your dress! I want it!
