I am a firm believer that there is something to celebrate everyday!

Rain. A four letter word that when mentioned in the event space packs a big punch. The truth is when you think of a wedding planner you may not think about rain, but over the past 15 years I have noticed that it has been the one thing that has the ability to cripple any […]

Reasons to hire a wedding planner.

As a designer I love when clients bring ideas and their vision to the table, but allow me develop and expand upon them, to work with different creative teams to bring the big vision to life. That is exactly what happened with Lauren and Chris. On our very first call Lauren said, this might be […]

It’s time for my yearly planner! Yes, you heard me correct. Today is the launch of the 2023-2024 Academic Yearly layout (August 2023 – July 2024) planners from Simplified, a brand by Emily Ley. I have been a Simplified planner girl for years, I’m certain it’s more than a decade. I found Emily the year […]

It’s safe to say we love books around here! My little sister dubbed me a “bookworm” growing up. In fifth grade I was on an independent reading program because I was reading at an eighth grade reading level. Needless to say I hope my children learn a love of books from their mama! One way […]

It’s no secret that when you have a little one learning to drink with a straw every parent on the planets number one request is for the cup not to leak! That is how my Mr. BMF and I found these amazing cups with built in straw. The handle helped our little guy carry around […]

If there’s one story that so many know from childhood it has to be If You Give a Mouse a Cookie! Due to my love for blueberry pancakes when I was pregnant a sweet friend gifted me If You Give a Pig a Pancake, and it’s been a favorite in our home since day one. […]

Today was the day! The big launch! Can I just say I’ve officially had a Simplified Planner by Emily Ley for eight (or is it nine) years now. I found her amazing brand the year after she offered personalized monogrammed, laminated planners out of her home. From day one they have been nothing but amazing […]

How fun is this! It’s Wedding Wednesday and it only seems fitting to curate an Easter “basket” for the newly engaged! How adorable are these ice buckets as the basket! There are so many adorable options it’s hard to choose just one. The celebratory bunny, summer lemons or perfect monogram – you choose your base! […]

I can’t believe the day is here! A day that feels like it has been 12,775 days in the making. I was always raised to believe I could be anything I wanted to be, and I get told often that I sure am a lot of things. 🙂 Now that I own multiple businesses (and […]

My little boy is ONE! How in the world did a single year go so fast, yet so slow all at the same time? To be honest I am not sure I remember the first few months, but have plenty of pictures and videos to help! One thing I knew I wanted was a professional […]

Before I share all of the goodness below, I have to say how truly blessed I am to have amazing women in my life to shower sweet baby Frederick. I mean look at these ladies, each of which I am eternally grateful for. These ladies pulled out all of the stops, starting with these adorable […]

As I sit here ready to write, to fill in the blanks of the past few weeks that I have been MIA, I find myself with writers block. So much has happened, but it’s like I don’t know where to start. I guess you could say I have been on a type on honeymoon. No, […]

On my calendar for today I had to remind you all to continue voting throughout the weekend. My company, Christina Leigh Events, is up for Best Wedding Planner in Oklahoma and Best New Wedding Planner in Texas, but on a day like today taking two seconds to vote seems irrelevant. Let’s face it, there are […]

I don’t know about you but I love that people are getting away from always pairing the stereotypical Christmas colors of red and green together. Don’t get me wrong I love red and green, but I love that the two colors can stand alone. If I were to pick one I would definitely go with […]

Who says the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show can’t inspire a girl to more than just hitting the gym a few extra hours? The Passion segment opened and the bold, beautiful colors were perfect! (See the inspiration video here.) When angel Candice Swanepoel hit the runway in this piece that was hand embroidered in India I fell in […]

With recent news of Ralph Lauren’s Daughter, Dylan, tying the knot of course we were curious about her gown. Designed by her father, who “is said to have consulted his former protegĂ©e and grande dame of bridalwear Vera Wang on the design of the dress,” I quickly fell in love. The August issue of Vogue is not […]
