Weekending & Recently Read

Happy Monday friends! This is going to be a bit of a hodgepodge of Weekending post because half my weekend was spent coordinating the last wedding before baby & that didn't leave time for a lot of other things! So let's get to a few non-professional photos from the wedding at one of the most beautiful venues in New England, Wentworth By the Sea!
First look was in this beautiful gazebo
The floral arch was crazy beautiful and then repurposed for the reception. Florals done by Floral Lab

Beautiful mix of high & low centerpieces

We are in the middle of a bit of a heatwave here and doing my best to stay inside, but Sunday early afternoon we had to get out of the house so of course I requested Shake Shack!
Didn't get much while shopping, but this sign spoke to me - especially since what I did buy was makeup related! 
New dress came in right in time for the 4th this week!

If you're planning on lots of pool time this week, these are definitely fun reads!
Lie to Me || What a read! Think Gone Girl with way more twists! Ethan and Sutton seemingly have it all in their perfect house with their perfect life, but of course that's not their reality. Plagued with lies and betrayals, everything comes to the front when Sutton leaves a note saying that she needs time to think and to not look for her! Did she really just leave on her own accord, is Ethan responsible - all their lies start to come out as the investigation into her disappearance moves forward! It's about 300 or so pages and I honestly couldn't wait to keep reading the book - definitely a page turner! 
The Foxe & Hound || Another Kindle Unlimited book - this was fun and lighthearted and just a bit steamy! Adam is new to town and also happens to be one of the only available men in the small town. Madeline is has lived in the small Texas town her entire life and it shows by her tinder profile since she has resorted to expanding her search for a few towns over. Madeline's dog just may be the matchmaker that she needs because Adam is the new vet! Mixed signals and blurred lines - make this the perfect chick lit book! 
The Fortunate Ones || The second R.S. Grey novel that I've read and it was cute, light and fun. Brooke works as a cabana girl at the country club where Austin's most elite crowd hangs out - including James Atwood who happens to take a liking to her. Even though their age difference and their five year plans are extremely different - they still somehow can't stay away from one another! There was an unexpected twist that I really liked and it would be the perfect pool / beach reach! 
Hoping everyone enjoys the week and the 4th of July festivities!

  42. It was crazy hot and humid that weekend, as it was Aviah's birthday party outdoors, so I remember all too well, lol! I'm glad things have been cooling down though. I love hot summer days, but I'll pass on the humidity. I love your cute new dress it looks so good on you and great with the LV bag. The wedding also looked amazing; I love the center pieces and the cake! Thanks for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a great week ahead!
