Monday Just Keeps Coming

I really wish I could post a picture of the wedding dress I picked out.

It is honestly perfectly ME and I cannot wait until it comes in...

Four months from now. Blah.

I can't wait to hunt for the perfect accessories.

The change in dress is however making me rethink my colors. I was dead set on navy, gray and teal... but now I just don't know.

In other news from the weekend...

My fiancé left sweet notes


There was lots of studying

Happy Monday!

Sunday, April 22, 2012


Today, I bought a wedding dress.

I keep hearing I'm "ahead of the game".


Who can wait to plan the most exciting and wonderful day of their life?

So happy, so blessed.

Sometimes and Always

Linking up today with Mackey Madness!

Sometimes: I want to go running or work out to slim down for the wedding.
Always: I don't. Is this insane of me? I hear and see all this info on bridal workouts, but I just don't have it in me. I fell in love at this size, why change it now, right?

Sometimes: I want to call and catch up with my best friends.
Always: I end up texting. It's a horrible habit, but there just aren't enough hours in the day to call everyone!

Sometimes: I get so mad at my dogs for how much they dirty up our house.
Always: I forgive them. They're just too cute :)

Sometimes: I mean to eat healthy.
Always: I end up eating things that consist mainly of carbs and cheese.

On the upside, I have been drinking a glass of water before my coffee in the mornings.

It's a start right?

That's all for now.

TONS of cleaning to do today.

Visiting my old job.

Getting the diamond cleaned.

Taking a walk through the Reading Bridal District. I hear it's amazing.

BB Riverboat House on the river tonight with William and some friends.

Sounds like a great day to me!

Rainy Monday

I hate rain.
Mondays are not much higher up on my list.
This morning, I was graced with both.

Apparently the universe wanted to apologize for the above because my boss called and said I could stay home until 4pm and only work the second half of my shift.

Jackpot in my book.

I am in a weird place right now, so I'm happy to have the morning off to clean, organize, and just think.

I am happy. Happier than I have probably ever been. More than that, I am stable and confident in what I am doing. For someone like me, who's been through the things I have, stability and confidence are king.

However. I never expected to be engaged and settled down at 23. I thought it'd be more like 32.

I am so ecstatic that I have found the love of my life and get to do things like wedding plan and house hunt.

Problem is, I have no idea how to do either. Or many other things that will soon be in store for me as a wife.

Thankfully, my wedding coordinator and Pinterest are helping me through the wedding process. Will also purchased the home we live in now, so we're not both first time buyers. 

But still. It's kind of a lot.

I cannot wait to see what happens in the year or two to come.
And how I manage to pull it off :)

This past weekend was great. Got to spend a night out with some friends Saturday and spend the entire day Sunday just relaxin with my babe.

Happy Monday!


I got a notification today stating Blanky Blankerson is now following your May 11, 2013 board.

Will's ex, who he dated for a couple years a bit before meeting me, is following my wedding Pinterest board.

I have never met this girl and literally do not know her at all.

Creepy? Should I be afraid for my life?

Seriously, who does that?

Fill in the Blank Friday

Linking up today with the little things we do.

Happy Fill in the Blank Friday. And Friday the 13th. Yuck.

Normall I hate this day, and the number 13. I'm pretty superstitious, but I think it's time I change my ways.

A) Will is flying today, so I have to be optimistic. B) I'm getting married in 2013, so it can no longer be bad luck.

1.  Today is a good day because Only 2 more work days until my day off AND my babe comes home from his business trip.

2.   The best thing I did all week was Pay our reception venue deposit and schedule a meeting to meet with a priest for the wedding!

3.  The current weather is perfect  and it makes me feel like a million bucks. The weather seriously dictates my mood most of the time.

4. The best thing about spring is see above answer. I'm always happier in the warmer months. Also, HOLIDAYS. A LOT of my friends and family, including myself and W have spring and summer birthdays, plus there are so many fun summer holidays.

5. A fashion trend that I'm dying to try out for spring is pastel denim. I bought some bright colored denim and I have been wishing I went with softer colors.

6. A person who made me smile this week was my baby sister. I ordered her some clothes and she seemed so happy when she called to tell me she received them. Love making the girls happy.

7.  The most delicious thing I ate all week was Dominos Pizza. I love pizza. Am obsessed. And we always get Dominos. We had some last week and it was a little sub par, so when this week's was on point- it was especially delicious. I know, I have a very sophisticated pallet.

What I'm Loving, How Pinteresting

Linking up with

This week, I am LOVING Pinterest.

With Summer just around the corner, it's time to get my wardrobe in shape.

There are so many great days to celebrate in the summer. Plenty of fun holidays, and Will and I both have Summer birthdays.

Some style's I'm loving

I love all things pink


Navy + Floral = Win

Pinterest is also making wedding planning so much easier.

I am a little insane and have way more done 1 year out than most other soon to be brides I know, but it's so fun I can't stop.

Here are a few pins that sum up what we're going for

Linen on the ceiling

Short centerpieces

Table numbers

Color palet

Need this lighting somewhere

Wedding party attire colors

How people planned weddings before Pinterest, I don't even want to know.

Happy Wednesday!

Tired Tuesday

I need to do laundry.

I need to clean my house.

I need to bathe and spend some QT with my dogs.
Bathe the dogs I mean. I haven't given up on showering.

I need to schedule appointments with churches. 
I knew we'd face challenges since W is Catholic and I am not, but this is more complicated than I anticipated.

I need to catch up with my friends.

I need to spend more than just sleeping hours alone with my Fiancé.

Unfortunatly he is traveling for work. Making it even more difficult for me to do all of the above.

Not to mention there is an unbelievable amount of work hours in my future.

On the plus side?

I need money, so work is a good thing.

I am extremely happy with my wedding budget.

We have a date.

May 11, 2013

I can't wait to start trying on dresses and my Pinterest wedding board is getting better by the day.

Overall, I can't complain.

Escpecially looking forward to Sunday.
Will shall be home. I have the day off. And we can just be.

That's all for now :)

Friday's Letters

Linking up with Adventure's of Newlyweds for Friday's Letters

Dear Engagement Ring, I love you. You are perfect. You are so unique and special and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you.

Dear Weekend, I am so glad you're here! Tons and tons to look forward to this time around and I for one cannot wait. Day off with the girls, first free day alone with my new Fiancé, friends coming to town, and family for Easter on Sunday. Does it get any better?

Dear Paige and Brooke, You are the best sisters ever but boy can you wear a girl down. I have no idea how Mom takes care of you by herself while working a full time job. I love you and I am glad your first solo visit was a success.

Dear Will, Thank you for letting me turn the house into tween central this week. Thank you for making an effort to have a relationship with my sissys and thank you for grilling out yummy dinner for us last night. You are a dream come true :)

Dear Catholic Church, I know you take this wedding stuff seriously. But your marriage request packet is so intimidating. Especially for a non Catholic. Please accept our application so we can get married in the most beautiful church where W has already spent so much of his life!

Dear Blog, You may be getting a lot of wedding action lately. A) I am sure that will be taking over my life for the next year so I won't have much else to write about and B) I want to remember everything about this time.

Dear Ohio Weather, I am FREEZING cold in April yet it was 80 degrees almost the entire month of March. Please get it together, I don't have time to switch back to cold-weather mode. Not to mention I have a great dress I want to wear on easter and this weather isn't going to cut it!

Happy weekend everyone!
