One Of Those Weeks…

Oh, lovely readers… it’s just been one of those weeks where it feels like nothing is flowing!  Don’t you hate that?!  Sigh…

I’ve compiled some pretty things to cheer me up— wanna see?

Pretty print from 20X200.

I’ve always wanted to make a desk out of a door!

I could shop for honeymoon-wear all day long…

Get the template for these cute invites here.

And some words I really needed to hear this week…

Thanks, KC!

In other good news, today marks the 6-month countdown to our wedding!  PLUS it’s St. Patrick’s Day!  Maybe the rest of this week won’t be so bad after all…

How’s your week going?  Has the time change thrown you off?  Got anything else to vent about?  Or—even better—got some happy news to share?  Tell me in the comments!

Wedding Wednesday POLL: How Long Should An Engagement Last?

Now this is a question I wish I had asked myself before we set a date for our wedding!

{via}

I’m not sure why I had “1 year” in my head, but for years leading up to our engagement, I assumed that we NEEDED at least one full year to plan our wedding.  So, in my mind, our September wedding date would be perfect timing, since Travis proposed last July.

There have definitely been pros to our 14-month engagement.  We have had more time to work on personal details for the big day, and we’ve been able to enjoy our pre-wedded bliss and fantasize about the future before we rush into it.

But if I had to do it all over again, I would probably choose a shorter engagement.  The truth is, it’s been 8 1/2 months and the wedding is pretty much completely planned.  So, sometimes we feel like we’re waiting around to get married, even though we’re ready to be husband and wife RIGHT NOW.  Plus, a longer engagement leaves a lot of time to questions EVERY SINGLE DECISION you make.

If I knew then what I know now, I’d choose a 6-8 month engagement.  But that’s just me… what do you think?!

Let’s Chat About The Bachelor!!

Ah, another season of The Bachelor has come and gone… tell me what you think about last night’s finale!

(Spoiler alert for those of you who haven’t seen it yet!)

As you likely know by now, Brad chose…

Emily!

I feel like from the moment Brad met Emily, he was smitten.  I spent most of the season wondering whether she would pick him, not the other way around!

And sure enough, they still seem to be struggling a bit to get their relationship together.  The after-show was a bit shocking to me— I figured that once they were engaged, everything would fall into place.  I don’t like to hear them call their relationship “volatile”… that seems like a relationship that can’t last.

And poor Chantal seemed so heartbroken!  At least it was great to hear that she found someone once she got home…

I’m not sure The Bachelor will ever really be a show about successful relationships, but boy is it fun to watch!

What did you think of Brad’s choice?  Do you think Brad and Emily will last?  Will you tune in to see Ashley H. be the Bachelorette?  Tell me what you think in the comments!

Headboard Envy…

When we move to San Francisco I want to put a lot of effort into designing and decorating our place.  And lately, I’ve been coming across a bunch of beautiful headboards that I am positively swooning over.  Wanna see?

I seriously can’t wait to purchase (or maybe make) one of these babies!

Are you into headboards like these, or do you prefer a simpler shape?  Do you prefer solid wood or upholstery?  Has anyone tried to make a headboard?!  Share your opinions in the comments!

And hey… have a great weekend!
