Random Ramblings

Hi lovers.

My head is all over the place today, so this blog post will be too. Sorry ’bout that.



In no particular order, here’s what’s going on in my world:

// I found a wedding dress! I’m very excited, but mostly relieved. It was stressing me out. I was really starting to think I’d never find anything that worked with our venue, wasn’t strapless, and still looked like a wedding dress. But I did and I love it! 

//That’s why I was MIA yesterday, I was dress shopping. My dad came along. It may seem like a weird thing to bring your father along for, but it was great. I’ve always loved shopping with my dad. (My mom came too, but in general she hates shopping and usually ends up annoyed which ends up annoying me. She’s better suited for other tasks.)

//I kind of want to give my wedding dress a name and talk about her like she’s my friend. I’ve been watching too much Bridezillas on Netflix.

//Joey always comes to the back door when he wants me to let him back inside. This makes absolutely no sense because I always let him out through the front door. He’s a weird one.

//I’m really unhappy with Mother Nature. Summer is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the sunshine and the warm weather, but this year, she’s really failing me. It’s been crazy rainy almost all summer, then we had a fun little cold spell, and now we are back to rain and humidity. Not cool, Mother Nature, not cool.

//Have you seen those fried bananas with honey that are circulating around the Pinterest world? I finally tried them and I love them. I am getting plenty of potassium these days.

//Last night, on my way home from my shopping spree, I rounded the bend to our house and found a thick layer of fog rising our hay field and the most beautiful sunset. I stopped to take a picture, but it doesn’t do it justice. 




So yeah, my brain is just bouncing around today. Mostly about wedding stuff, but not entirely. What’s going on in your world?

    I thought I held up pretty well yesterday, didn’t I? Until you dragged me to a bargain rack…then I knew we were totally off track…

    • Yes, you really did do so well πŸ™‚ I know, it was my own fault. You did SO well in the MK store, I really was pushing it dragging you through the H&M sale rack.

  • Congrats on finding a wedding dress! Finding the right dress can be stressful. I remember being pretty dissappointed after my first time trying on wedding dresses, but luckily I found my dress on my second visit. All the wedding stuff was so much better after I found my dress.

    • Thanks! It didn’t help that the bridal store clerks were all “wow, you are cutting it kinda close” when I told them I was getting married in ten months. {Insert panic here} It already feels like things are running more smoothly, that damn dress is so central to everything! πŸ™‚

  • OMG!!! I love e-card. So freaking funny! Congrats on your wedding dress. Fried bananas are a favorite snack of mine!

    • Thanks! It’s a huge weight off my wedding-planning shoulders πŸ™‚ They are so tasty! Makes me wonder what other fruits I can fry up…

  • Happy Friday! I totally understand about being all over the place- that’s me most of the time.
    Congratulations on finding your dress! Ten months is still a long time before your wedding, though! ( but I guess it’s all relative- I had a super small wedding and had just three months in between getting engaged and getting married, but it’s all stressful no matter what, right?)
    Beautiful foggy sunset photo, I would’ve loved to see that, too!
    Kind of ‘meh’ here today- lots of rain and just enjoying the mellow morning because I have a busy evening and Saturday planned πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! I was shocked when they told me that dresses take 6-8 months to come in, plus you need time for alterations. My first thought was “what about the brides who don’t have year-plus engagements?!” It really is stressful; if you have a short engagement you are stressed to get it all done, but a longer engagement gives you time to over-think and stress about every little detail. There’s no winning.
      Have a great weekend!

  • Yay for finding a wedding dress! What a relief! I am sure it is just right for you πŸ™‚
