WW#7

Life

Whew, it's been ages since I posted about the wedding at all. Although a BUNCH of things have been done since my last post, which was probably about either A) The wedding convention I attended with my mum or B) The issues with wedding dress shopping. Now, months and months later, and now it is actually the same year as the wedding, I've buckled down and started to get more…

Wedding Convention (WW#6)

Life

I had a post on Monday that was going to be about coffee table books, but then I got home from a weekend of camping, hiking mountains, and having no wifi/cell service, and just didn't have it in me to complete that post, so instead, here we are on Wednesday with a post about a Wedding Convention I attended back in October with my mom! Now, I admit, I probably…

Problems with Wedding Dress Expectations (WW#5)

Life

Since the going is still slow on the wedding front (Although I did put down a deposit on a wedding photographer and signed the contract with them! YAY! ONE BIG THING DONE!!!) I figured that I'd push this back to being a once a month update, because I'm bad at talking about weddings and I'm not an expert in any sense of the word. As the day creeps ever closer,…

Wedding Wednesday #4

Life

Obviously it's been a while since last wedding Wednesday, yet, unsurprisingly, I don't think much has actually happened since those last posts. (oops?) I did do the following though: Went to TWO dress appointments (still didn't find a dress though) Sketched out save the dates more intensely Pestered all involved parties about getting together respective guest lists Fretted over the fact that weddings are so much work and maybe I…

Engagement Photos Show We are Hipsters

Life

Against Alex's wishes, we are indeed, without a doubt, hipsters. There is nothing he can do to deny it any longer. No longer can he recoil and say "I'm not a hipster!" The evidence is damning. And, with that, I'd love to share some of our engagement photos taken by the AMAZING Ron Dillon! It was very easy to just be our incredibly awkward selves around him, and he really…

A Potatoes Birthday! + Wedding Wednesday

Life

Today is my darling Potato's birthday! You may remember Alex from his music posts on the blog a ways back, or his science posts, or perhaps his gaming posts. If not, you've probably seen his face around since I love it so much that I'm constantly taking candid photos of him everywhere we go. Anyways, like I said, today is his birthday! Since it's happening in the middle of a…

Wedding Wednesdays #2

Life

I nearly forgot about these posts, that I said I'd do, oops! I can't help it if the wedding isn't in the forefront of my mind these days, there is so much other stuff going on at work and just in general! Being an adult is time consuming, can I take a break? A vacation maybe? Ah well, it's enjoyable to have a packed schedule, I never feel guilty for…

Yearly Goal Update + Wedding Wednesday

Blogging, Life

I don't actually think I posted any goals earlier in the year...although I did make some! There have been a lot of things that I've meant to get better at/start doing/stop doing etc. You know, basically how all goals work. I don't really consider them to be "New Years Resolutions" or anything like that, I don't make those. These are just goals that I've jotted down, kept in my mind,…

Wedding Misadventures

Life

I don't know if anyone remember, because I haven't really talked much about it, but I got engaged back in May and I haven't done much on the wedding front since.  I mean, a bunch of people I know are currently engaged and I feel like everyone else knows what they are planning on doing, while I'm over here furiously applying for jobs and eating old Thai food leftovers. We…
