Things I’m loving: wedding edition

4 Aug

Now that the whirlwind of being just engaged has settled a bit, I have quickly realized things I love about weddings and wedding planning. Throughout these next months, I’ll be documenting my wedding planning process, DIY creations and excitement for you (and me).

To give you a little glimpse into favorites of mine on the wedding front right about now:

  • My mom and Chip’s mom – they have jumped on the wedding planning train as fast as I could say “YES!”
  • Any sort of writing on the bottom of shoes, like this:
  • Friends who are dying to throw us an engagement party. I couldn’t be more loved.
  • Pinterest. If you aren’t on it and you are reading this blog, you need to be. It will be your obsession. Feel free to follow my boards.
  • White lights hanging from various places. And candlelight. It’s so magical.
  • Save-the-dates that feature the couple’s dog. Too bad we don’t have a dog to feature in the save-the-date, or we would definitely be doing a photo shoot with one. I mean, everyone loves puppies, right?
  • Save-the-dates in general. You can get so creative with them!

Speaking of save-the-dates, we’re doing an engagement photo shoot with one of my closest friends, Jessica Henry, and brainstorming fun ideas right now. Please feel free to give suggestions as to what we could incorporate. Things Chip and I love or do: cook, pretend to be great photographers, med school, go on fun dates, travel, etc.

Things I’m Loving Right Now

21 Jun

As I transition out of college and into the real world, I have started to appreciate random little things and can’t seem to get enough of them. Here is a list of my latest obsessions for you to indulge in.

1. “Don’t Stop Believin” – While it used to remind me of pyramids in cheerleading competitions, it now reminds me of two totally different and equally awesome things. One is the final song at Chip’s cousin’s wedding when we belted it out after a long night of cutting a rug. The other is Glee – and the version I have recently taken a liking to. Check out that song here…

2. Glee – Speaking of Glee, I have no idea how I went this long in life without watching it. I could only hear so many times “Glee was literally made for you,” until I checked it out for myself. I got it as a graduation present and watched episode after episode until I could officially deem myself a “Gleek.” Well into the second season, I can safely say that everyone should watch it. You won’t regret it.

Check out that color.

3. Nailpolish – I have realized that painting my nails truly puts me in an incredible mood. I never used to have time to do such a random thing, but now I instantly have a smile on my face when there is color on my fingertips. My favorite? Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Sonic Bloom. Pow!

4. Mail – As you may remember here, I hoard collect stationary because I not only love sending notes, but I love receiving them, too. Yesterday, when I thought that the mail had already been brought in, I checked and found not 1, not 2, but 5 things for me. Yes, 5! It was the greatest surprise ever. I got a congratulations letter from my sister for graduation, a wedding invite, a paycheck, a coupon for Bed, Bath & Beyond, and a package of stationary I ordered. (I have to continue the stash somehow.) Great day all in all.

So that concludes the things I’m loving right now. I’ll update you as I discover more!

What about you? Are there any things that you can’t live without right now?
