It’s been a while since we’ve caught up with each other… so grab your coffee. I have mine because I swung through Starbucks on my way to work this morning… for no other reason than it being a Tuesday and Tuesdays aren’t my favorite.
Speaking of Starbucks… have you had the Smores Frappuccino, yet?! Do yourself a favor and DO NOT get it. I “made” Chris get it over the weekend because we had a free drink, and it is probably the best thing I have ever had.
If we were having coffee…. I would probably talk a lot about the wedding. Sorry (not sorry), but it’s pretty much all-consuming at this point. :) I don’t think you’d mind though, because who doesn’t like hearing wedding planning details (or is it just me?). I might explain how I haven’t necessarily felt stressed yet, but I will once it’s closer mainly because I am flying to NYC for work a week and a half before the wedding and flying from NYC to IL so I have to have EVERYTHING packed and ready to go. Which is kind of a headache. But, it is what it is!
You might ask if I am pretty much done with planning, and I’d tell you that I am… pretty much. But every now and then I feel like I am forgetting something or remember something that I need to order. So I may follow it up with “is it ever done?” haha…. but the projects are almost done; but I keep wanting to add more. I need to stop. It’s a problem. This is why people can never stick to budgets. There is so much fun stuff out there.
If we were having coffee…. I’d ask you about the gifts that I am planning for Chris and probably as your opinions. So much pressure! It’s seriously the little things (during wedding planning) that I am having the hardest time making decisions for. All the big things (venue, musicians, flowers, etc) has been easy. Arg!
If we were having coffee…. I’d ask you where you have been shopping lately. I am looking for new fall clothes for the honeymoon (which I have barely given any thought to!)…. supposedly it’s like 60s in Europe in October which is pretty chilly for this AZ girl.
I didn’t take full advantage of the Nordstrom fall sale except for these babies. Love.
If we were having coffee…. I’d tell you that my BABY SISTER is going to college on Saturday. I can’t even believe it. Where the heck did the time go? I am so excited for her. College was insanely fun. I wouldn’t necessarily “go back” (I love life now and making my own money, etc.) but I would re-live a week or two if I could… How about you?
If we were having coffee…. I’d tell you that despite the heat, we have had some pretty good storms here lately. AND I saw a DOUBLE rainbow a couple days ago.
If we were having coffee…. I would tell you that once you send out invitations, the BEST part is waiting to get all the response cards and seeing who is coming. Seriously. Every mail day is so exciting because it’s like “oh, who is coming??” We have only had one person RSVP that they couldn’t come, and we expected that from then. So far, we have about 60-70 people that are coming! Only about 130 more to go. ;)
I would also probably explain the headache that happens when people don’t INITIAL by their entree choice… haha. If two people are going and they choose different options, how am I supposed to know who’s whose?? lol
If we were having coffee…. I MIGHT confess that I have only been washing my hair once or twice a week. #DryShampooForTheWin… Don’t get me wrong, I still shower every day… but washing my hair and doing it is such a hassle. I’d rather just style dirty hair. It holds better anyway. This has been a game changer for getting ready in the morning. Plus, I have mastered a lot of different hair styles. :) I’d tell you to give it a try…
One last thing… if we were having coffee… I would ask your opinion on my “signature” drink for the wedding. I am thinking a blue margarita (for something blue because I don’t want to wear or incorporate anything blue into my wardrobe and my initial plan failed)… but i have never had one. Have you? Are they good?
How about you?
Have a good day, friends!
