…October. Oosh! That’s bad.
I’ve been away for a while and now I’m back. The holidays came and went and as soon as the new year arrived it was time to square away wedding details.
So here we are almost half way into the year and I spent the first half prepping for my wedding day. Now this half, I hope to focus on my house, my marriage, and all the fun things we want to do before this year ends.
Here’s to a few good posts!
I have to say the October is my favorite month of the year. I love Autumn but mostly I love….
I’m not 100% what we are doing as usual. BUT there have been hints!!
We always talked about how epic 5 Year was going to be but I didn’t anticipate that we would be saving for a wedding as well. Which is fine, of course, because we’re going to have a blast anyways.
1 Year : Skipped class, enjoyed a concert at workplay, Trip to chattanooga, yummy meals out on the town.
2 Year: Melting Pot, trip to Nashville!
3 Year: We were apart so we watched scary movie over skype and made tacos and carved baby pumpkins.
4 Year: Flip Burger, The ZOO, teapots, car shopping, went to the park, dressed up for Halloween ( for once!), 4 Year Chili!!
Since I recently discovered Ben, I haven’t listened to anything else for the past 24 hrs. It’s only fitting that I share his music with you. The whole band is amazing.
* Bonus – they always look like they are having the time of their lives. I love it.
hahahaha he covered Call Me Maybe…too funny!
I need to find someone who makes this. Anyone? Anyone?
I would just love some Papel Picado with cafe lights at la boda!
I asked my dad about it and he just said to Google it! Good grief! Talk about helping me out! I don’t want to have to ship it from Mexico if I don’t have to. So I wonder if there is a company stateside that can do it.
In 2007, my best friends & brother graduated high school. I wanted to offer my congratulations to him and to celebrate such monumental transition out of childhood and the fighting and bickering we used to do. I got us weekend passes to Lollapalooza in Chicago. We had an amazing time during the car ride, catching up with family in Chicago and ( of course ) rocking out at show after show!
This year it’s August 3rd 0 5th and the line up has me so unbelievably excited! We haven’t gone back to Lolla since 2007 but the amazing list of artists for this year has me wanting to make it back up there. Maybe with a wedding a year away, it could be stretch, but I’m going to try my hardest.
Let me share the excitement with you..

Good morning to you! I hope you are getting settled into your routine. Mine usually consists of sorting through mail with a cup of cereal ( duh ) and today in particular, trying to keep warm because here in Alabama it has suddenly reverted back to winter weather for a couple of days. Looking though my inbox I usually delete all the spam right away and save the goodies for last. One of my faves is a daily newsletter I receive from WhoWhatWear.com. BUT today I open their email to find THIS:
I mean, really. How is that even close? How is this DIY even sponsored by whowhatwear? I’ll give them this, it did make me laugh this morning so that’s something. Let’s just take a closer look..
Here is a close up of the Christopher Kane shorts…
…I’m not saying I’m in love with them, but from far away, if you squint your eyes and it’s foggy outside, it looks like a fun pattern. The deal is, if you start telling the common folk it’s okay to bedazzle something, you best watch out. I have horrible flashbacks to when ‘The Bedazzler’ came out. I can just see girls taking matters into their own hands…lucky for us, Etsy has given us a head start into the future of this new micro trend whowhatwear is trying to push…

Moral of the story: Do not bedazzle, it leads to zombies.
