The wedding is quickly approaching and the one thing I know I
want need is a statement necklace. Not just any statement necklace, I want an emerald statement necklace. Since I can't afford a real emerald necklace, I'm willing to settle for the next best thing! Check out these works of beauty!

As the date draws nearer, this all just seems more and more real. A couple nights ago Andrew and I booked the most exciting aspect of the wedding - the honeymoon! Honestly, we couldn't have been more giddy! We've been tossing around the idea of a honeymoon in the Caribbean. We are both scuba divers and knew we wanted to vacation somewhere in the tropics, but we weren't too sure where.

After extensively googling the Caribbean I stumbled across Jade Mountain. It's an exquisite resort, but completely out of our price range. We could stay there for maybe 3 nights!

So I kept Googling, and that's when I found Ladera - nestle into the same area as Jade Mountain, but completely obtainable for us!

We fell in love with the gorgeous views and the private plunge pools. Ladera is smaller than Jade Mountain and tucked into the landscape more, but we think that adds to its charm. We decided we would rather have incredible views than be next to the beach, so Ladera should work perfectly for us!
Now we just need to decide on the activities we are going to do while in St Lucia. I can't wait to explore the beautiful island, and hopefully I can drag Andrew along for a hike or two!

I have to sleep in total darkness, but Andrew is the opposite; he needs to watch TV to go to sleep. So we compromise. He watches TV and I wear an eye mask! I left my favorite eye mask at my parents while we were visiting over Thanksgiving, so I've been eyeing these new ones as a replacement. Which one is your favorite?

Okay, so I may not know what I want my hair or makeup to look like, but I have a semi-strong feeling about my shoes. I want wedges. Mainly because I know I can walk in them (I will be on grass), and they are comfortable after a few hours (and pumps are not because they suck)!

Since we've had a little extra time on our hands, Andrew and I decided to put some muscle work into our rental house! We painted a couple accent walls in both the den and dining room! Andrew is an incredible handyman, however painting is just not his cup of tea! Luckily I found I love painting, so I did the trim and corners, and Andrew rolled everything else out. What do you think?
The photo doesn't do the color justice. It's a beautiful gray that isn't as purple as this photo shows.
