life // lately.

lately ..

in 13 days, I will be on an island, just days from saying “I do” to [J]. // not that I’m counting.

there is not enough coffee in the world.

speaking of, I desperately want a new keurig 2.0 brewer. // we currently have two coffee makers [traditional + keurig] on our kitchen counter. I’d love to condense both features into one machine.

work has been pretty stressful lately with my “long vacation” coming up.

my wedding dress fits. // I celebrated by drinking a beer ..

[J] + I are getting our first dose of parenting, with our no longer tiny kitten ..sir rigby.

sir rigby does not understand we are getting married, so I’m covered in kitten scratches. // we’re his toys when he’s knocked all the rest under our appliances.

he runs to the door to greet us when we get home from work. // he has us wrapped around his little paw.

[J] + I pretty much bought out all of whole foods on sunday. // don’t grocery shop when you’re hungry.

I cannot wait to share our wedding details with all of you. // I took pictures of everything this weekend in anticipation.

a snapshot from my first bridal shower. I was so, so, so happy.

wedding // luggage tags.

September 22, 2014 in wedding.

it has been almost one year since we sent out our wedding invitations. and nearly six months since many of our guests booked their travel. we wanted to send a small pre token of appreciation and a “get excited” package to those who’d be joining us in the dominican republic. so [J] + I put our heads together.

we decided on luggage tags. accompanied by a thank you card + travel tips.

I cannot rave enough about my husband-to-be. he custom designed every single bit of our wedding. everything you see, he designed. and there’s so much more were these came from. [cannot wait to share it all soon].

wedding // 6 reasons for bridal showers.

September 15, 2014 in wedding.

I wasn’t sold on the idea of bridal showers. I understood the purpose. but was never much for the games. or sitting in front of the crowd opening gifts for hours. after being a bride + having two thrown for me, I have a completely different perspective.

6 reasons you need to have a bridal shower.

 1] you feel an overwhelming amount of love // both from the people who spent the time + money to plan your shower and those who took the time to be there with you.

2] all of your favorite people are in one place // you just want to take a time-out for a gigantic group hug. but don’t. or do, it’s up to you.

3] it’s a part of the wedding you just get to show up & enjoy // you don’t have to send out the invites, or stress about the planning + execution. you just arrive. it’s amazing!

4] you get to see your new last name up in lights // I don’t know about you, but I tend to get so caught up in the itty bitty details of the wedding, that sometimes I forget after all of this is said + done, I will be mrs. [J]. I love seeing it.

5] scrumptious food + cocktails // no explanation needed.

6] it’s often times the last hoorah before the wedding // as we hugged our friends + family goodbye at our last shower, we said “see you at the wedding”. we knew after that, we were ARE in the homestretch.

did I mention the overwhelming amount of love?
