A Not-So-Wedding Wednesday…

Sorry for the super late post today, lovely readers.  I’ve been awfully busy taking my State Board exam for Cosmetology!

I woke up at 4:45 this morning and endured six hours of testing, but I am very happy to announce that I am officially a licensed cosmetologist!!

(this is how good it feels!)

It seems like I was starting school just yesterday— this year has gone by SO quickly!

Another great thing about today: our wedding is one month away!!

I have a Wedding Wednesday post in the works, but it looks like this week may have a wedding Thursday instead.  Thanks for bearing with me!  I’ll be back tomorrow with some advice for a soon-to-be bride.  Stay tuned!


P.S.- You have to check out one of my new favorite blogs.  (I’m especially smitten by this post.)

P.P.S.- Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for this week!
