life via instagram

I feel like I have definitely lived a jet set life lately and am glad to finally be home and able to be back on a routine (well at least for 3 weeks!!).  If you follow me on Instagram (@malloryshawdesign) you know it has been a month packed with travel...some planned, some last minute...but all fun!

First was Denver and Colorado Springs, CO with my mom and sister.  This was my first time to CO and I could not get over how pretty it was....Now I want to go back to visit Vail and Aspen!

While there we visited the Air Force Academy...the chapels architecture is insane!

We also toured the Olympic training facilities...the US Sailing team working out...no biggie!

Then back and only 3 days to complete my One Room Challenge, style and photograph...not much sleeping!  If you missed the reveal or process check it out here!

Next.. off to SC we went for my 10 year high school reunion...talk about something to make you feel old!  This pose is what we always did in elementary school (the 4 of us have been friends since 1st grade..crazy!)...don't worry we don't go around popping knees now!

While on our road trip back to Nashville Richard and I started talking about a small getaway...what first started as lets go to GA for the weekend ended up with us booking flights a few days later to Vegas!  This was my first time to Vegas and I liked it so much more than I thought I would.  It was so much cleaner than I expected?!  And the shopping!!  We stayed at the Encore which took Hotel shopping to a new level and I want to move into the rooms...all of the black white and gold...ahh!  I did have a little bit of beginners luck playing black jack (although I need to work on my speed for adding basic math :/ )...so I splurged on my first pair of Loubs!

We saw Absinthe and Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil...both were AMAZING and must see!

From Vegas it was home for 24 hours to unpack and repack...next stop Miami!  I was in one of my best friends weddings...it was an Indian wedding...it was amazing!  Lots of attention to details.  I can't wait until she gets her photos back to show you lots more!

This is just being set up...not even the finished product!

Bridesmaids!  First time wearing a Sari!

The groom arrived on a horse behind.. a dance party.. with steel drums!  Need I say more?!

Don't they look like a real life prince and princess?!  (Aladdin and Jasmine!?)

From Miami we were off to Greenville, SC for Thanksgiving and some recharge time with my fam.  Then down to Columbia for the South Carolina (our alma mater) vs Clemson game..Darius Rucker sang the national anthem (he is a Gamecock too!)...we won the 5 in a row vs Clemson...high FIVE!

Then a road trip back on one of the busiest travel days of the year...what was normally a 7 hr drive became 10... blah!  It was all so fun.. especially getting to see family and friends.  So now its back to reality...which I am actually super excited about!  No suit cases for a while!


  1. Wow. I'm exhausted just reading that! Glad you're back in Nashville for a bit. So glad we got to catch up during one of your breaks. That wedding looked amazing!! :)

  2. Whoa! What a fun past few weeks (and great ways to rack up those frequent flier miles!). Congrats on the black jack luck & Loubs, I think that's the perfect way to treat yourself in Vegas!
