Fresh flowers on my desk.

Shopping at some of the cute boutiques in Fredericksburg.

Hiking the Enchanted Rock with Daniel, I made it to the top! (about 425ft high!)

Admiring nature’s beauty during our hike.

My anniversary gift – a past, present, future necklace.

Daniel asked me to marry him, and I said yes!

I had a whirlwind anniversary weekend the past few days. Daniel came down to Austin and we took a little trip to Fredericksburg to do some hiking at the Enchanted Rock, browsing some of the little boutiques around town, and eating at all of the amazing restaurants (the Fredericksburg Herb Farm for dinner & Sunset Grill for brunch were my faves.)
Then yesterday, before taking him back to the airport he got down on one knee and popped the question! I really don’t remember what he said because I was crying so much. But it was magical and a moment I will never forget for the rest of my life! I promise not to bombard yall with wedding planning details, we’re not going to start planning for a few more months… We have a few things to figure out first – like the 8 hour distance between us!

I’ve been Instagraming it up lately (@robyngrona) and wanted to share some of my pictures with you. Are you on Instagram? Leave me a comment with your user name and I will follow you!

From the top left – I spent last weekend trying to organize my closet by colors and styles. Now I just have to figure out how to organize my shoes. Speaking of shoes, I ordered those lovelies from Zara earlier in the week and got them in the mail last night…they are just as cute on! I also worked on putting my desk together and changing up my room a little. I am loving my new bedding from Pottery Barn. The bottom middle picture is a fun top I got on sale with those Zara shoes. And I am participating the February photo a day challenge…so far I’ve stayed on top of it, but it’s only the 3rd day of February.

Happy Saturday! Isn’t this pile of shoes from Oscar de la Renta dreamy? There’s not a pair in there that I wouldn’t mind owning. Organizing my closet is on my to do list for some point this weekend, it’s starting to look like this shoe pile (just with a lot less Oscar). What are y’all doing this weekend? If catching up on blogs and internet time is on your to do list, then check out some of my favorite reads from the week…and please share yours with me! My favorite reads + outfits from the week:

I hope all of you had a wonderful Holiday weekend, and are looking forward to another year as much as I am. 2011 has been a great year, and I can not wait to see what 2012 is going to bring! I wanted to wish all of my stylish readers a wonderful new years! May you drink champagne, wear lots of glitter, and celebrate with loved ones!

By the way, are yall making new years resolutions? I never really have, but I try to build on things I have been working towards throughout the year. Some of my personal goals for the next year: stress less, enjoy the moment I am in more, continue with the healthy eating habits I picked up in 2011, do more yoga, and grow as a person. What are your goals or resolutions?

I will not be posting until a few days after the new years, I am going to soak up the time I have left with my family & loved ones on my little vacation. I’ll see you all in 2012!

Isn’t there something magical about the Holiday season? My holiday weekend is starting today, and I’ll be spending the weekend with my loved ones eating, visiting, opening presents, and having our annual nerf war with all of my little cousins (yes, as in nerf guns). I hope that whatever you do this weekend, and whatever you celebrate, you enjoy the days with loved ones and have a beautiful & magical time. Happy Holidays to all of you!

Isn’t this Thanksgiving table setting just dreamy? I would like to be here for Thanksgiving, and if it were up to me the weather would be a perfect blend of fall and spring. Cool enough to wear boots and sweaters but not yet cold enough to be uncomfortable to sit outside.

I hope you all have a beautiful Thanksgiving!

I find a lot of really neat and cool things online, and I decided I’m going to start sharing what I spot with you. The other day I was on pinterest (surprise, surprise) and I spotted these mod iPhone cases…it just so happens mine is cracked and I’m in the market for a new case.

These are from Dani Notes, and you can customize them with whatever print, color, initials your pretty little heart desires.

Aren’t they fun? Now if I can just decide what colors and print to go with…
