One thing I miss about living in the city are my dinners with Architect Design. Last night he had me over for a wonderful night of catching up and talking about anything and everything including the features of blogger we hate. Here are better photos from the night. Thanks again AD!

Aimee wanted to make an apple pie and I wanted to make apple sauce so we came up with this crazy idea on Saturday night that we would go apple picking at Tarara Winery the next day. We could not have picked a more perfect day, the weather was amazing!!!
A cute little baby one!
Yes the boys did more eating than picking.
The boys found this big guy and were playing chicken with it.
$12 for a "peck"
Of course we couldn't leave a winery without having some WINE!!!!
Our gorgeous apples that will soon be turned into apple sauce and apple butter. YUM

I’m "fall"ing in love with the color yellow. Every time I turn around there it is, bright, bold and in my face. Today I saw this amazing candy table from Amy Atlas on HWTM. Check out the rest of her stuff, truly amazing, I NEED an excuse to throw a party…. Halloween maybe?
While shopping at the new J.Crew in Reston on Monday night I saw this awesome jacket. Love the purse too, but I didnt' see it at the store.
A few photos in my favorites folder on decor pad. There's that yellow again.

This weekend I worked the hardest I have ever worked and had the most fun doing it. Our friends Jason and Grace got married on Saturday in Minneapolis and gave me the opportunity to arrange all the flowers. I have never taken on a task this challenging and I would like to thank all the people that helped me make it happen.
First thank you to the bride for trusting me. Grace you ROCK!
Second to my husband who worked his tail off removing thorns, lugging buckets, cleaning up spilled water, unwrapping callas, driving like a maniac to the church and of course dealing with me.
Thank you to Aimee for stuffing all 50 Calla Lilies with cotton balls. You go girl. To Adam for perfectly putting floral foam in the altar arrangement pots and making a perfect ball out of floral foam for the flower girl. (even if you didn't do it my way)
Thank you Armin DeFiesta for being an awesome guy and photographer and taking photos of my flowers, I can't wait to see them all!!! Here are a few photos from his blog.
Here are a few quick snap shots I took of the flowers. I wish I had taken more but I was so frantically busy I really didn't have time. I will post more when I get the professional ones from Armin.

We are on our way to Minneapolis to go see our friends Jason and Grace get married. I am arranging all the flowers for the wedding and I can't wait to get to the hotel to make sure the flowers all arrived safely from Ecuador. I will try and post photos.

OMG, I'm in love with the new Dupont Hello Cupcake.
Last Friday Chris and I had the perfect date night, we first went to the Brickskeller for beer and overheard some people talking about the new cupcake place, I turned to Chris and said we HAD to go. So after finishing our beers we put our name in at Pizza Paradiso and then headed over to grab some cupcakes, and good thing we did because by 7 30 they only had 2 flavors left. After chowing down on our FAVORITE pizza we dug into our cupcakes, yummmmmm.
Sigh.... Beer, Pizza and cupcakes... it couldn't have been more perfect.
The owner can thank her very talented Architect husband Bill Bonstra for the very hip design. This sketch of the shop was featured in Architecture DC, I'm loving the pink chandelier.
