Quote Of The Week {That's a Wrap}

My 32nd year in 2014 has been nothing short of amazing.   
From saying “YES” to the man of my dreams and then finally saying “I DO” on August 2nd.  
 From putting my “Bachelorette Pad” townhome that I called home for almost 6 years on the market, to closing on our first home together and what I am fairly certain will be our “forever home”. 
 From having a big brother that I wasn’t so sure would ever settle down, to finally popping 
the question to his one true love…is it September 5th yet?!  
 I have gained family, friends, and love this year.   
 I thank God for all the blessings of 2014 and I can hardly stand the wait for all that is to 
come in 2015!

Christmas Movie Round Up

Ok, so the first movie on the list is not a Christmas movie however, I have been wanting to spread the greatness of this movie for sometime now so...here goes! 

Blended, staring one of our favorite match-ups (need I remind you 50 First Dates) Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler is brillant and of course hilarious!  I seriously would go from laughing out loud to bawling my eyes out from happy tears!  The hubs and I picked this unexpected new fave up from the redbox the night before we moved into our new home and curled up to watch on a pallet we had made on the floor. #makingmemories
I don't want to give away details so just pour some hot tea or live on the edge and sip a hot toddy and curl up with those you love to watch this Christmas Holiday!! 

Ok, now onto the Christmas Round Up!
All of these movies, are favorites of mine and Scott's and a must every Christmas Season.

So what's your must watch movie during the holidays?? 
Any good ones I am missing??

Fashion Fix Friday {Capes}

So whoever said Superman and Wonder Woman were the only chosen ones to don the ever powerful cape??  Last year I scooped up a navy cape that I obsessed over when I purchased and then something possessed me to tuck it away deep in my closet?!  Just last weekend I remembered this darlin’ gem and decided to break it out and get my superpower on and now, I am officially obsessed!  What could possibly be better than a stylish ensemble that makes you feel like you’re rockin’ your pj’s and bonus, your strut becomes a little more swaggerish because 

So how do you feel about transforming into a superhero?!

Quote of the Week

We are officially in our new home (yippee) and after a week and 3 days, most everything is out of a box and in its place (Go us...and our loving family who helped so much) We even managed to deck the halls for the Christmas Season with one tree up and one more to go!  I've been snapping a few before pics and can't wait to share all the afters.  Some people may say this time of year is absolutely bananas to move into a new home but, I think it's even more exciting to move in and celebrate right away with those you love most!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and have started to feel the Christmas spirit too!

Happy December my loves!

For the Love of Cooking: {Pumpkin Gnocchi}

If Gnocchi is on the menu, chances are it’s going to be my entrée of choice.  
There is something about those little dough dumplings that hits the spot for me.  Could it be my addiction to carbs?!  Quite possibly; and you see that is reason enough for me to lust over these perfect fall recipes.  I would love nothing more than to cover my entire kitchen in flour and give my best attempt of making my gnocchi from scratch (as my brother’s Italian fiancée Christina does) BUT, I make no promises that while the majority of my home is being boxed up in preparation for our move, that my little dough balls won’t be store bought- shame on me…I know! Maybe next year I can follow these recipes a little more closely! 

I decided to share two variations of this recipe because we all like options right?!  
First up, and my top pick comes from a featured post on Camille Styles blog (If you aren’t familiar with Camille put it on the to do list!) by Mimi Thorisson of Manager (item #2 on your to do list).  The Saint-Nectarie cheese sauce is what caught my eye and really pulled me to this pumpkin gnocchi.

 Get the Recipe

Next up, is a Brown Butter & Sage Pumpkin Gnocchi.  Now, this recipe I know I will LOVE as it incorporates potatoes as many gnocchi recipes do and a dash of cinnamon…YES!!

Get the Recipe

Are you a fan of gnocchi??  Have you tired these variations?? Details!!
Bon Appetite!

Magnolia {Farmhouse Chic}

One of my and Scott's favorite shows to watch is Fixer Upper on HGTV.  If you aren’t familiar with the show, stop what you are doing and set your DVR to record!! You will absolutely fall in love with Joanna and Chip Gaines, the muscle and beauty behind each gorgeous reno!  Not only are these two ridiculously talented, but, they are one of the most loving and compassionate couples on TV.  It’s an extremely nice break from a lot of garbage {to put it nicely}  that fills our airwaves today.

Joanna has a few signature pieces she is known for and I’ll be sharing more next week but, today I wanted to share one of “Jo Jo’s” (as Chip calls her) go to fixer upper farmhouse meets glam pieces…The sliding barn door!  My very best friend Rebecca and her husband Greg are in the process of building their forever home on a huge plot of family land that will be oozing in old farmhouse beauty and this is one statement piece I’m dying to see her incorporate!  I can hardly stand the wait to see this gem!!

Below is few of my favorites I’ve rounded up on Pinterest for you all to gush over!  After your drool sesh, you must stop by Magnolia Farm were Jo Jo and Chip call home and indulge just a little bit more!

Sophisticated In White {Fall Decor}

One of my favorite seasons to decorate for is Fall.  
 There is something about the cooler season and deep rich tones that just gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling of comfort.  As I updated you a couple post back, Scott and I are currently selling our home and guess what…as of  last Friday night, we have accepted an offer!!! Yippee!! Unfortunately, having the house on the market means I had to dial back my fun and festive fall décor but, I couldn’t help but gush over these clean white round with perfection style options.  I still say you must toss in a few deeper hues here and there but, you can never go wrong with clean and ever so elegant white.  Next, year in our new home (fingers crossed) white with pops of orange and deep red is what you will find at the Gaither “estate”! 

How do you decorate for the fall months?
Do yo stick with the classics or mix it up a bit?

Love It or Hate It {Ombre Accent Wall}

Hey Hey Hey...Remember Me?!  
I'm back and with a new last name!!! Allow me to reintroduce myself as the forever blushing bride Tiffany Gaither to one handsome man and total gentleman, Scott Gaither!! 
That's right...August 2nd at 6pm, my fella and I tied the knot and marital bliss has completely ensued!
I have a full post coming your way soon with all the details but, for now here is just a tiny sneak peek! 
Alexis of Red Stone Photography is nothing short of amazing!!!

Scott and I currently have our home on the market and we are hunting a new place we can call home so you can imagine how I am filling my spare times these days!! Pinterest and my forever favorite glossy mags are all I can seem to gush over at the moment!  I stumbled across this beautiful ombre accent wall and started thinking...would this be fun in an office or sitting room??  Maybe a guest room or nursery (hold your horses, we are still enjoying being newlyweds at the moment but, a girl has to think of the future...duh).  

So what are your thoughts??  Are you diggin' the transition of color onto an accent wall or do you feel this trend is best left for your luscious locks and cakes and such?!

So what's it gonna be?? 
Love it or Hate it??!
