• The Notebook-Inspired Wedding (has it really been 10 years since we fell in love with Ryan Gosling?)

    10 year anniversary of The Notebook + wedding inspiration | Oh Lovely Day

    Call me a sucker, a sap, or cheesy, but I freaking love The Notebook. Maybe it’s because I met my sweetheart young. Maybe it’s because I love a great love story. Maybe it’s because Ryan Gosling is so hot and Rachel McAdams is such a doll (and let’s be honest, you know you STILL wish they’d get back together in real life too…don’t lie). It’s probably a combination of all of those things, but I do – I just love this movie. And I can’t believe it’s 10 years old already.

    Since I know many of you still love it as much as I do – a good love story is timeless, after all – I thought I’d share 5 steps to having your own wedding inspired by The Notebook.

    5 Steps to have your own Notebook-inspired wedding | Oh Lovely Day

    Step 1: You need a bride in white driving gloves. It’s so Ally.

    Step 2: Ringbearers in newsboy caps, obvs.

    Step 3: Groom and groomsmen in bowties and suspenders, Noah style.

    Step 4: A birdcage veil. Because “if you’re a bird, I’m a bird…”

    Step 5: A canoe getaway. Bonus points for rain and a sea of ducks.

    *major bonus points for nabbing the actual Ryan Gosling as your groom. And kudos to you.

    While I’m sure you can tell I’m mostly kidding, I do think The Notebook can inspire a lovely wedding or engagement session, if you love the movie or maybe your first date was seeing the movie – how cute would that be!?

    Happy 10 Year Anniversary to The Notebook – thanks for all of the lovey dovey inspiration and romantic date nights. “It’s still not over…”

    •  Sunday morning mood. It's how getting tossed in the air by your pops (if you're Calvin) or 8 straight hours of sleep (if you are me) will make ya feel  #calvins3rdyear  7 months old today, but momma won't be taking your 7 month photo today (probably not tomorrow either) because I'm so tired from your sleeping more like a 7 week old than a 7 month old. Did you not get the 3rd baby memo? If you don't give me more sleep soon I'm going to pull a Lindsay Lohan and check myself into a nice facility due to my "exhaustion" (except in my case it really will be exhaustion). Then who will you wake up all night, huh? So can you try and just wake me up once a night? Instead of 3? Deal? DEAL!!!? #seriouslysotired #quincyrhys
       Apparently you wanted to sleep in your own room as well, because last night your brothers bunked up and you got the nursery all to yourself and slept like a champ. 7:30-3:30, quick feeding, then up at 6:30. Which means I got my first real night's sleep in 7 months. Encore encore!!!  #quincyrhys #quincysmilestones  I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale
