Wedding Planning Update: Busy Weekend Ahead

When People Ask How's Wedding Planning Going

It is Friday afternoon and I am currently tucked away in my office, eating lukewarm pizza leftover from last night’s dinner, and trying to make sure I have my to-do list in order before heading into the weekend.

It is going to be a busy one, packed full with wedding planning chores that HAVE to get done because we are running out of weekends before the wedding.

As of now, we have eight Saturdays left, and four of those already have events planned. So, technically, we only have four free Saturdays left (yay, I can do math!) to finish DIY projects, buy decorations, order whatever needs to be ordered, and make sure everything is organized and ready to go.

OK, bring on the panic attacks.

But really, I have no idea what the “F” I am doing most days. How are you supposed to plan a wedding, work full-time, continue to grow your relationship with your partner, watch Netflix, walk the dogs, eat, drink enough water, and still find time to maintain an acceptable level of personal hygiene?

Is it even possible?

22 Reasons Kacey Musgraves is the Gal Pal We All Need

If you don’t know who Kacey Musgraves is, you really are missing out.

She shook up Nashville and the country music industry in 2013 with the release of  “Merry Go ‘Round,” and her energy and own way of doing things set her apart from other musicians of her time.

I bet Kate Middleton never rips her pants

I bet Kate Middleton never rips her pants

I admire Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She is my idol and the definition of a classy, intelligent, and poised woman. I often find myself studying images of her and taking notes on the natural way she carries herself, how she appears to hold her own, and how her fashion — from blue jeans to ball gowns — showcases her lovely figure without being overly revealing. Her ability to look gorgeous and sophisticated in practically any attire is what I hope to match with my day-to-day clothing. When I shop, I often I ask myself “Would Kate wear this?”

I am not a Royal, however, and while I fancy myself as somewhat stylish, like Her Royal Highness I am no stranger to the occasional wardrobe malfunction. Like today when I managed to pop the stitches on the backside of a brand-new pair of pants and strut around my office for God only knows how long before I noticed that my rear was exposed.

My first thought was “Noooooo, not again!” Yes, that signifies that I have torn my pants in this very unfortunate area more than once — today marks the third time, to be exact.  Continue reading “I bet Kate Middleton never rips her pants”

26 and the Big Easy

26 and the Big Easy

Whoever thought celebrating a birthday and traveling to New Orleans in back-to-back weeks was a good idea clearly was younger than 26. That person was probably in the prime of her 25th year and thinking she could easily keep up with all the parties, plane rides, and navigating a new city. Well, she was wrong. And that she is me.

March has been a wild month for this old girl. If you could see my Lilly Pulitzer agenda right now, you would ask me what in the hell was I thinking. This month is so scribbled over that, at this point, I can’t tell which events belong with which days. I’m not complaining, though. It’s good to be busy. Especially when you have things such as “Birthday,” “Best Friend Visits,” and “Leave for New Orleans” penciled on your calendar.

I guess you could say I brought all this upon myself, but I choose to place some blame on Justin and Emily (my best friend) because they love me enough to plan a party in my honor and then not tell me about said party. In the months leading up my birthday, it is possible that I mentioned on more than one occasion that I wanted a surprise party. I didn’t think anyone was listening to me. Again, I was wrong.
