Favorite Shopping Sites

Happy Happy Friday! 

Lately I have been doing a little internet shopping. This is nothing new, and is something I blame (or we co-blame each other) my sister in law, Kortny on. When I first moved to Oklahoma, I lived with her and my brother. If you ask Matt, all I spent my money on was Old Navy and Taco Bell. Old Navy is true, but a girl goes to Taco Bell once and he hasn’t forgotten it! There were some really fun (and funny) memories I have from living in that house with them, but one of them is definitely of me and Kortny sitting side by side online shopping together. 

Matt, Kortny, Bryson and me at my wedding.

I have moved on from ON and are now concentrated on my new home! I might also add, that I am a tad wiser with money than I was 7 years ago. Each month, we have chosen a little project for something I want to add to our d├ęcor. This month is window treatments for our living room (which I’ll post about later!).
As much online shopping as I do, I thought I would share some of my favorites with you! Now, keep in mind that we are newly married and are not exactly rolling in the dough. So, these are my favorite sites that offer cheaper alternatives. One day I might be able to shop at the pricier places for some staples, (Horchow & Restoration Hardware, I’m talking to you!) but that time is not now!

Let me know if you have any gems worth sharing as well!

Have a wonderful weekend!

MIA No More

OK, I get that I’ve been MIA, and I’m sorry…kind of. Now that life has come to a slight slowdown, I’ll be able to share more of myself with you! Guys, I seriously can’t wait to share with you every single detail of our wedding, our marriage and our home!! So let’s start…
First off I’m now officially a Stewart! Hence the blog name change. I will miss being a McGuire, and let’s get real, it’s not like that is something that is mistaken by anyone who is familiar with the McGuire clan…I’m still loud and obnoxious and cuss occasionally. But I full on embrace my new name. I’m in love with being married… (Did you know when you get married you get to see that person every day? Not just a few times a week? Um, hello! Why hadn’t anyone informed us of this first?)
Jake and I have been busy settling into our new home, and our new life. It has been so much fun! We’ve started new shows…SCANDAL (OMG!) We’ve fought over dishes, bank accounts, my decorating choices, thermostats and sleeping habits (apparently I move…a lot) and we have recently relived our favorite day ever! Yes, we got our wedding pictures back! Lots of giggling, laughing, crying and finger pointing went on and we just had the best time.
Our photographer is Caroline Rentzel of Caroline Rentzel Photography. She did such a wonderful job capturing our perfect day and putting on paper what we had dreamed of.
I’ll share more about Caroline, our other fabulous vendors and about our DIY’s in the future!

I’ll leave you with this picture, just a little glimpse of the complete and utter joy we felt that day!
