Manhattan Compass Marriage Proposal

marriage proposal - you are my compass Showk and Diane were traveling to New York City for New Years Eve (because what is better than NYE in NYC!) and Showk decided to make this trip a little extra special! On January 1st they woke up and “randomly” decided to go for a horse and carriage ride through Central Park. But about half way through their ride the carriage stopped at a beautiful gazebo with personalized decor just waiting for their arrival :) In his questionnaire, Showk talked about how much Diane means to him, that he loves her strong moral compass, and how she truly leads him to be a better person through her thoughtfulness, integrity, etc. So we created a custom metal compass with blue notes that illustrated that beautiful sentiment (blue is her favorite color)! You can see the rest of the details below (like her favorite flower, custom coffee mugs – since they had their first date at a coffee shop, and a monogramed blanket to commemorate the date)!

Spending time together on Superbowl Sunday

Are you ready for the biggest game of the year? Whether you’re in it for the players, the plays, or the award winning commercials, couples all across America are preparing for the hours that will be spent in front of the tv in order to witness Superbowl Sunday. Ladies, not as interested in the game as your significant other? No problem. Here are few ideas to make the big game a little more fun for you.

 

Snacks:

How about taking the typical beer and pizza a few steps further? There are tons of ways to keep you out of the tv room and in the kitchen focusing on an array of snacks. Some of the more popular game day snacks include beer-candied bacon, jalapeno popper bombs, and crescent pizza rolls such as these:

pepperoni crescent rolls

Décor:

If your husband is having the gang over, they may not care what the room looks like, but you will. There are tons of ways to make even a football watching party easy on the eyes, so its time to bring out the goal posts, chalk boards, and streamers. Everyone will have something to smile about whether their team wins or loses.

Games:

What better way to pass time than by playing a game while watching the game? The good news is, they can only be played during commercials so no one has to be distracted. When commercials begin, mute the tv and make up your own commentary for the characters. Take bets on what songs will be performed during the half time show. Play commercial bingo for a prize.

Bryant Park Ice Skating Marriage Proposal

ice skating wedding proposal We have all seen it before, when a couple does a “private skate” at a public ice rink and proposes during a very cheesy and mushy song. Well when Stephen wanted to propose to his leading lady, Lisa-Marie, he wanted to do something similar but yet worlds more romantic! So we rented out the Bryant Park Ice Rink in New York City for the actual proposal, but then we also rented the restaurant next to the ice rink for a personalized surprise after the big moment! Stephen and Lisa-Marie were on vacation from Australia in Manhattan with her brother and sister-in-law. So when they arrived at the ice rink, Lisa-Marie was super bummed since the minute they got on the ice there was announcement that everyone must exit for the hourly ice cleaning. Just then Stephen “dropped his glove” and they were awkwardly the last people to begin their exit… but instead of getting off the ice their couple song, Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley, began to play and they had a solo skate around the ice! After she said yes (to the tune of thousands of strangers clapping and cheering) the two couples went inside to “warm up and call home”. Only then did Lisa-Marie realize the whole place was covered in photos of the two of them and her favorite flowers! (My personal favorite picture is when she is crying on the phone to her mom… so so sweet!)

The Yes Girls Double Baby Shower

The Yes Girls Baby Shower 1

Last week I shared the fabulous baby shower my family threw, but this week I get to share one from our very own Yes Girls, Lindsay and Becca. One of my best friends since Kindergarden and I have the same due date so what did our amazing friends and hostesses do? They threw us a double baby shower!

It was pure perfection! The pinwheel backdrop inspired by the yellow, gray and white color scheme, the delicious bagel bar, the childhood photos, and the “Father of the Bride” quotes made us feel incredibly blessed! One of my favorite parts was the “Who is more likely?” shoe game. Many have seen the game played at a wedding (read game details here) but they catered it to two friends and baby related questions (i.e.: who is more likely to get an epidural first, who is more likely to deliver first, who is more likely to shower most when the baby comes, etc.) It was quite entertaining!
