Sample Sale: New York Bride and Groom

Yesterday, while driving down South Blvd., I decided to stop in New York Bride and Groom and I was quite impressed with the customer service and the huge selection of fashionable bridesmaid dresses and bridal gowns. I've been meaning to check out the store, since they had their re-grand opening at the beginning of the year. It's so cute and I love the fitting room area!

Just the Way you Are!

Okay, I had to blog about the new Bruno Mars song "Just the Way you Are". I absolutely LOVE this song! It's so sweet and makes me smile. I'm such a sap at times, as my husband and BFFs (Ashley, Allia and Leslie) can attest to. If either of them were at my desk right now, I would probably be singing this song to them. LOL!

Happy Friday!Hope this song brightens your day!
