A Vintage Affair [ A Wedding ]

This bride is one of a kind.  She took every little detail of her October wedding and turned it into a DIY project. The outcome was simply stunning.

One of her DIY projects included brooch bouquets and boutonnieres.  The bride said, “I knew that I wanted to do something a bit different for the smaller details of the wedding, just for a unique touch. Being a creative person, I saw my wedding as the perfect opportunity to create fun, pretty things to add that unique, personal touch. I decided the bouquets and boutonnieres were a good place to start. I decided I didn’t want to go with flowers, as they are delicate and don’t last very long. Instead, I decided to collect antique brooches, pins, and jewelry from various local antique and thrift shops with my bridesmaids and mother. I also collected bright fabrics of all colors and textures, and handmade rosettes that would soften the solid ball of metal and bling. I ended up making nearly 400 rosettes, it was a fun, mindless project I could do in the evenings after work while watching tv, and still feel like I was being productive for the wedding.   I chose antique jewelry and rosettes that I felt represented my bridesmaid’s individuality, so each bouquet has its own personality and theme. For my own, I stuck to a white and metallic palette, no bright colors. They ended up looking great, but were really heavy! My girls ended up getting quite an arm workout!”  

She also made all of the headbands, her own headpiece, and hand picked out all of the gorgeous china from different antique, consignment and thrift shops.DSC00514

My all time favorite DIY was the wedding dress that was created by her aunt.  The dress was made out of beautiful soft fabric and antique lace was perfectly placed amongst it.  The bride took it a step further by added beading to the dress and the final result was nothing short of incredible!

Lean Body Cookbook and Meal Planning Guide by The Get In Shape Girl

Hi Friends!

We are approaching the end of 2014 and I have two questions for you.. Did you accomplish your fitness and health goals for the year? If so, how / If not, why?

As a fitness and health fanatic and since I have a page on facebook geared towards the two, one thing I encounter all the time are questions about nutrition and where to start. It seems like there’s so much information out there telling us conflicting things to help us lose body fat, but what works for the individual? How are you supposed to know what worked for someone else will work for you?

I am here to tell you that nutrition plans are NOT a one size fits all deal.

I want to help you lose fat, build lean muscle and achieve the lean body that you deserve so you can actually reach those goals with EASE in 2015. Check out the Lean Body Cookbook & Meal Plan below!!

Sweet Potato Pancakes [recipe from the Lean Body Cookbook]

Quick question… What did you have for breakfast today?

If you are like me you get tired of eggs and oats day in and day out so I was excited to see this recipe from The Get In Shape Girl.  Check it out…

Sweet Potato Pancakes

“These are very portable and have come with me on several trips out of town for breakfast.  They are also a perfect post-workout snack since they have lots of carbs and protein. I imagine these to be something I would want to bring with me if I were going away for a weekend and was gonna workout on my trip or something to take with me to snack on during a Crossfit competition to keep me fueled.” – The GISG



2 whole eggs

4oz sweet potato, cooked

1/2 cup plain 2% greek yogurt

1/2 tsp liquid stevia

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

Cinnamon to taste


Mix in a food processor or by hand, thoroughly, until even.  You could even mash these together with your hands.  Separate into 2 – 4 pancakes, depending on how many you want, just make sure they are no more than a half inch thick to begin because they will take longer to cook through.

Place on frying pan over medium heat and let sit for 3 – 4 min before carefully flipping onto the other side.    You very well may have to flip for 2 more minutes on each side to ensure they cook all the way through but do not burn on the outsides.


*Makes 1 serving*

Cals – 270

Carbs – 30g

Fat – 7g

Protein – 23g

The Get In Shape Girl’s newest cookbook, the Lean Body Cookbook and Meal Planning Guide is available now. These are 41 recipes for breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner that are completely healthy and unprocessed foods.  Not only that, but she actually teaches you the best foods to eat and when to help you lose fat.

Now… it is time to make these bad boys :)

pumpkin cinnamon and pecan granola

If there is one thing I love almost as much as peanut butter it is granola. I could eat granola all day every day. With milk or without milk. With a spoon or by the handful. It is ridiculous how much I love granola.

Here is a delicious recipe I came up with and it is SO good I want to shout it from the rooftops!



3 c. old fashioned oats

1 1/2 c. chopped pecans

1/3 c. roasted pepitas

1/3 c. roasted sunflower seeds

2/3 c. chopped almonds

1 tbsp. stevia

1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 c. melted coconut oil

1/3 c. pure maple syrup

1/2 c. pure pumpkin


Mix together oats, nuts, seeds, stevia, salt and spices together. Then set aside.

Heat coconut oil, maple syrup and pure pumpkin in a pan over medium heat until warm.

Pour the liquid over dry ingredients and mix well (do it quickly before the liquid cools).

Spread granola over a non stick pan or lay pan with parchment paper and layer it with delicious granola.

Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes then stir granola gently to keep clusters together.

Place back into oven for 10 more minutes or until lightly browned and your kitchen smells like heaven.

Eat with milk, on top of ice cream (my favorite is arctic zero) or by the handful :)
