Whoa, guys, we’re in full-on wedding mode.
Things to talk about, for your previewing pleasure and my own accountability:
- Favors! Delicious, yummy, aromatic (in a good way), growing favors. Can you guess what they are by that description? Probably not. Though I may have already told you. Is it wrong to give it away on my blog? Are these things supposed to be surprises? Since when do I do “supposed” to? Interesting things to ponder.
- Invitations. Dude, the amount of work that goes into one piece of paper (oh, wait, wedding invitations are actually like 20 pieces of paper) is ridiculous. That said, I am in love with our invitations. Also in love with the fact that regular stamps will work for them, no fancy stamps for us! Also I am very pleased that friendly helpful people work at the post office and are happy to talk to me about 1. my blog, 2. my wedding, 3. cute places in Arlington, and 4. cats and dogs. What more could you want in a post office (hi Tess!).
Um, I guess that’s it. But we’re doing stuff, like, all the time. Writing vows and maybe at some point thinking about ceremonies. I feel like for the past few months I’ve been wanting to plan our wedding but trying to do so without being that crazy girl who’s planning her wedding way ahead of time. Now it feels like the right time frame to be doing the things we’re doing, and I’m kind of enjoying it.
Also, taking a weekend off of planning is helpful and makes me much happier to plan afterwards. Things we still need to work on:
- Rehearsal dinner. We think we need one, we want one, we have no idea where to have it or how to pay for it. Fun!
- Honeymoon. What? You mean study for organic chemistry right after your wedding, but in a pretty place? Okay. But seriously, we should probably plan our honeymoon.
And for your entertainment, here are some before and after pictures of our apartment, because it is fun; I like the insides of houses and maybe you do, too?
If you come visit, you can stay in here! We’ll replace the big ol’ chair with a futon. When we get rich. Soon, yes? Of course.
Turtle is thinking, “Hmm… I’m not sure about this color.” Don’t worry, Turtle, we’ll fix it!
Hmm I feel like comparing the full to the empty makes it look cluttered. But it’s cozy, not cluttered, I swear.
You so want to come visit, right?
Lastly, I am hella stressed out/anxious/pretty much freaking out all the time with a million different things that are happening in our lives. Oddly, I am in a rather good mood… it just feels like I can’t breath. No biggie. But seriously, I am sort of crazy right now so if things seem disorganized and chaotic, it’s because they are. Enjoy!
