Trip to the zoo

Last week, I headed over to John Ball Zoo with my friend, Tifani of Tifani Lyn Photography. We took a stroll through the zoo, spent a little girl time together, snapped some photos, and hung out with the animals. I love going to the zoo! I need to be sure to go back again next summer and spend more time there. It's just five minutes from downtown, and it's so much fun. I could honestly sit and laugh at the silly chimpanzees all day. They are awesome! 

I was excited to team up with BucketFeet on this post to style their giraffe-print shoes. Bucketfeet is such a fun company. It started when two strangers met traveling through Argentina and became good friends. One was a backpacker, and the other was traveling to share the work of street artists to bigger audiences. Before saying goodbye, the artist drew a design on a blank pair of shoes for the other, and it sparked so much interest, they decided to start a company based on the idea! Now they work with over 20,000 artists from 100 countries to collaborate on designs together. Be sure to check them out!

Did you guys have a good weekend? I had one of the best weekends. My good friend, Sharisa, got married and it was so amazing. Every minute of it was super fun. Friday, we had the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner downtown. Saturday was the full day at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. If you caught a few of my Instagram snapshots, you'll see just how pretty every detail was. The flowers, the dresses, the venue... all perfect! Now they are off to Maui and I couldn't be more happy for them. I'm hoping she'll let me share all of the photos on my blog when she gets them back. She honestly did such a great job with everything!

Other than that, not much else is new. I feel like I'm finally starting to get caught up from a whirlwind week. The apartment is semi-organized, wedding tasks are being checked off the list, and I'm trying to just get rid of stuff. I'm hoping to have a closet shop soon now that summer is dwindling down. I'll keep you guys posted. Otherwise, this week looks pretty laid back, which I'm looking forward to! Then, we're off to the upper peninsula for a long weekend. Woo!
