have you ever felt so overwhelmed by the amount of things you needed to accomplish that when you’d sit down your brain would say “isn’t there something you should be doing right now?”.

that’s me.

full-time job + part-time weekend job + blogging + wedding planning + life. oh, and trying to get 8 hours of sleep.

thankfully I have an amazing fiancé, while I was on a coffee date with some local midwest bloggers this weekend, he was working on our wedding invitations, calling necessary vendors, and checking our guest list twice. he’s a saint.

busy is a good thing, don’t get me wrong. it’s just when you get too busy, you don’t have time to stop + smell the roses. to actually enjoy your life.

[*editor’s note: I am still smelling the roses. or at least waiting for may to bring them].

happy tuesday.

hello april.

the two best cures.

I want to jump up & down: friday is here.

I recruited [J] to make chocolate chip pancakes tomorrow for breakfast. after I sleep in, make a large cup of coffee, and then spend the majority of my day in pajamas. it just sounds nice.

do you have any fun weekend plans?

maybe a bit more ambitious than mine.

regardless, I hope it is great.

see you on monday!

the week in photos.

it’s the last day of november.

and surprisingly, I’m ready & excited for december. I spent alllll day yesterday organizing my life [budgets, job search material, etc]. so I am anticipating next month to be very productive & rewarding. [with a lot of hard work, of course].

on the same note – someone tell [J]: november is his date month. and it ends at midnight tonight. he’s rapidly running out of time. [yes, yes I was a little late executing my {october date}, but I think the effort I put in blew away the fact it was two days into november. just saying].

now ..

the last week of november in photos.

  1. it’s so hard [for me] to go to a mexican restaurant and not get a margarita. it was lunchtime. one thing to say: it’s 5 o’clock somewhere folks! [and don’t let a clock tell you when it’s acceptable to enjoy a cocktail. a european would NEVER judge an afternoon boozy beverage].
  2. I forced [J] to accompany me on a late night convenient store adventure. this is what we returned home with. [I don’t normally drink soda OR eat bags of chips. AND I was sober ..must’ve been a full moon?].
  3. tell me what is better than hobby lobby during the holidays? we didn’t get the hat, yet.
  4. quite possibly the beginnings of a christmas photo. to be christmas card. and the best holiday props ever. [also from hobby lobby].
  5. the tree is up, lit, and decorated. [I’ll put a finished product shot up next week].
  6. the perfect desk accessory: a chalkboard, rocking your fav/latest inspirational quote.
  7. over-sized sweaters. accompanied by leopard scarves. my winter staple. [outfit post?].
  8. got three new julep nail polishes. currently wearing: dark purple. with white polka dots on my ring fingers.

enjoy the last day of november.

have a grrrrreat weekend.

see ya in december :)
