when I miss national coffee day, you know I’m preoccupied.
I promise in a short amount of time, my blog will go back to “normal”. by normal, I mean regular posts and not all about my wedding.
lately, if I’m not in the office on the clock, I’m in wedding mode. constantly. but I’m not being too hard on my distracted self. this precious time is flying by. and regardless of the never-ending lists + stress, I’m loving it.
we started packing our suitcase[s] on sunday. fingers crossed the airline’s scale is feeling forgiving. our clothes ..not a problem. our wedding “stuff” ..heavier problem.
one week from right now, we will be traveling to or be at our resort in punta cana.
excuse me while I squeal in excitement. for the next 6 days.
during my radio silence last week, I was in omaha, nebraska. for four days of work training.
it just so happened, I arrived in town a mere thirty minutes before the tornado sirens went off. the city took shelter. and I took to the bar. [I get extreme weather anxiety. and I sure as heck was not staying in my high in the sky hotel room]. who else thinks I should be able to expense my sunday night, braving the tornado cocktails? I do. well, that’s how the trip started.
[*editor’s note: a tornado was spotted west of omaha. we just experienced 80 mph winds + thunderstorms].
days were spent in a marriott conference room. and nights were for discovering omaha.
from hotel room wine glass improvising, to the joy of changing out of my work clothes & into jeans, to delicious dinners, and a trip to the zoo. all captured by my phone.
I am happy to be home and back to my so-called routine. just as things are progressively getting crazier around these parts. it seems surreal to say we are in ‘wedding planning crunch time,’ with just over 4 months to go. summer is right around the corner. we have trips + celebrations on the books. I’m just excited
and a little how the heck am I going to get everything done?.
I had my heart set on attending go blog social this year. I also had my heart set on starting a new job. with training, and lack of vacation days
because I’m saving almost all of them for my wedding ..I didn’t know if I could make it work. long story short ..
I will be at
half of go blog social.
I am taking off to kansas city on friday (after work). to meet some of my favorite bloggers. and learn how to make this blog just a wee bit better.
here are a handful items I will absolutely be taking with me ..
1 // fun notebook; a lot of great info will be shared. 2 // colorful pens; just because I can. 3 // business cards; essential for networking with other bloggers.
4 // maxi dress; comfortable + chic for a long day. 5 // large tote; because you only have two hands. 6 // bright nail color; why not?
7 // sandals; you’re going to be on your feet all day. 8 // pocket file; to organize all the business cards you’ll be receiving. 9 // breath mints; no explanation necessary.
if you’re also attending, I want to know! and for those of you who are not, you can count on me to take good notes & photographs.
let this week begin ..
