Not me, that’s for sure. As soon as we have a few good spring days here in New York, I know the summer weather isn’t far behind. Although I wish we could have a longer spring, it just hasn’t been in the cards the last few years and I doubt it will be this time! As other girls break out the short shorts, you can find me in cropped pants and dresses. Although I don’t typically have a problem with my no shorts rule, there are a few ladies out there who make me second guess myself. Are you a shorts girl or not?
Happy Wednesday! It’s time for my (not so) weekly wedding update. I’ve been making a lot of progress lately, since my brother is feeling better. Just to give you an idea of where we are so far we are getting married June 28, 2014 so we are about 14 months out at this point. We chose our venue and they provide pretty much only a structure for dancing, tables, and chairs. I will need to rent or buy everything else we will need. Our ceremony will be in a pine grove, and reception set up outside of the barn, then the dancing/dessert bar will be inside the barn. I couldn’t be excited about it! You can see more about the location in this post. I have our florist, photographer, DJ, and a dress (EEEE!). I’m speaking to an officiant this week, and I feel like I’m making strides! There’s still a ton to do, especially rental wise, in the next year and a couple of months. Here are some things I’ve been pinning lately to let you know where my head is at. Are any of you planning a wedding or recently engaged? I’d be happy to help with getting organized, my binder and budget organizer are pretty serious!
Most of you know by now that I work for Coach, which means that I get a discount on Coach products, which means that I spend way too much of my paycheck every two weeks on said Coach products. Lately, it’s been the shoes. I may or may not have just ordered these, these, and these. Oops.
I’m very much a “matchy” person and although people say you don’t have to match your bag to your shoes, I always like to. My new mint driving shoes will go great with a mint Mini Tanner. So here it is, my favorite Coach bag/shoe combos. I decided to choose both shoes and bags I don’t have which in hindsight is a terrible idea, because now I want all of them. PS: the shoes are super comfy… seriously!
I can’t even start talking to you guys about all of the invitation options there are in this world. Thank goodness I still have over a year to plan this wedding because I’m pretty sure it’s going to take me at least half of that to find the right invitation. But then what happens when you start thinking about calligraphy. As an OCD bride, how the heck am I going to get calligraphy to match the font of the invite? The second I typed calligraphy into Etsy over the weekend, my mind was blown. So, which one do you like the best? These are from an Etsy shop called Noteworthy & Blue… love!
I guess by now you’ve all noticed I’ve been MIA. I’ve been trying to do a little better with social media lately but I’m just not able to keep up with the blog right now. Life took a crazy turn last Saturday when my brother was severely injured in a car accident. I’ve been at the hospital as much as I can be, but anytime I’m away (especially at work) it’s all I ever think about. My brother will get better, but it will be a long road to recovery. It’s just so crazy to me how things can change in an instant. I just want everything to go back to normal, and for him to be fine. Before I start getting all weird on you guys, I’m just going to cut to the point and say I apologize for what will most likely be very sporadic posting for the next who knows how long. See you soon!
I received these cute magnetic bracelets in the mail last week. Not only are they a super colorful addition to your spring arm parties, but every one sold educates a child for TWO DAYS. Magnoodle is a symbol of community committed to supporting a world with greater educational opportunity for all. Magnoodle, Pencils of Promise, and I believe that it’s every person’s right to have a quality education, don’t you?
