Friday Favorites

Hey o! It's time for Friday Favorites!

Nicky Hilton's Wedding Dress
How beautiful is this wedding dress that Nicky Hilton wore to her wedding last weekend?  It is custom-made Valentino gown costing $75,000!  Isn't it just beautiful?  The bride is beautiful too, of course!
Normally I would not be a fan of the sleeved gown with the turtle neck, but this is such a beautiful creation I love it!
I am sure the pictures do not do the gown justice.
Isn't the bride just stunning?
But even when you're a billionaire, your wedding day cannot be perfect.  The driver of this Bentley (!!) drove over part of her veil!  Luckily it did not wind around in the wheel well, but I am just horrified for her!  And this was on her way TO the ceremony, to make matters worse.  
She married a Rothschild and got married at Kensington Palace.

THIS PIZZA
I know, the picture is blurry.  But this pizza was soooo good.  It is from Kaleidoscope pizza in Medford, Oregon.  It has fresh spinach, red pepper, mushrooms, garlic, mozzarella on garlic olive oil.  It is soooo good.  I've put my husband on a mission to try to figure out how to copycat one of these.

MOONSTRUCK CHOCOLATES
Ever heard of them?  They are a local chocolatier in Portland, Oregon and they make the cutest chocolate truffles!  Look at them below! A school of clown fish! From left to right: sea salt toffee, peanut butter, raspberry, and blackberry. So cute and delicious!
The other flavors we tried were: peach (left), vanilla caramel (middle) and lemon (right).  The lemon truffle was to-die-for.  Like how these look? You don't have to go to Portland to get some, you can have some shipped from their online store here. (no I wasn't paid by them to write this, but I'll gladly accept payment in the form of chocolate hint hint)


MOVE COMPLETE!
I just wanted to give everyone an update about my moving: our stuff FINALLY arrived. Only 10 days late.  It arrived the day we headed up to Portland... went to Portland... came back and now we've been busy unpacking like mad!

We moved out into the country on a couple of acres.  It's my parents house but they don't live here.  They are letting us live here in the meantime.... I will tell you what we did with a big announcement in a separate post!  I started a new job this week too.  I was so super stressed out but it has gone well. One problem in the country though is the internet.  We had major major internet problems that just got fixed last night.
wahhhh I need the internet.

  2. That pizza looks so yummy! I think I actually might have been there on our last trip to the Northwest. So good! I'm glad all your boxes got there and hope you're having fun (or at least not too tired) getting settled in! Enjoy your weekend. :)

    1. We are having fun hanging all of the pictures, but organizing the closet and kitchen was not fun! Funny about the pizza place, they have a few other locations I think! Thanks for stopping by!
