Last Things

So the wedding is next week. Ahhh :) Here is a little update on the "last" things I have experienced (or will) this week.

1. Last shift at JCPenney....rejoice
2. Last shuttle ride
3. Last week at Shabby Apple
4. Last time parking at the airport
5. Last Sunday in a single's branch

Okay so that's not very many. When I started writing this I thought for sure I'd have this clever list of things...too tired. Anyways, wedding planning is going well. My wonderful mother is doing mostly everything so I don't have a mental breakdown with everything going on. I'm very looking forward to next week when I can just chill with Mathew (when he's not doing finals) and put the final touches on things. Yay!

Oh my goodness. The wedding is two weeks from tomorrow. I can't believe it. The first two months of our engagement was torture. The second two months have flown! I only have one more week at Shabby Apple and I'm kind of sad about it. I'm going to continue working for them (hopefully) from Rexburg so I'm happy about that. I'm going to miss all of the people, not necessarily the weekly commute, but the people: yes.

Speaking of Shabby Apple...they are launching a line of skirts next week and they are SO cute! I tried them all on today for fit purposes and oh my, I want all of them. And maybe I will actually be able to afford them. :)

That's all I have to say for today. Bye!

Dark Circles

Here's another help me post. I have terrible dark circles under my eyes. Kinda like these:

Only worse if you can believe it. I have no idea how to make them go away. I'm sure sleep could do the trick but seeing as that's not really an option for there anything else? I'd even take just a good product to cover them up. I know nothing about makeup. Help!

Sucked In

I just got sucked into a craft blog for over an hour. I contacted her the very first week of my internship but didn't really take time to look through her posts. Holy freak, I wish I had her creativity. I am officially inspired. If only I had time to make her wonderful creations. If you go to her blog...beware. It's addicting.

So I've been wanting to blog for a few days but just haven't known what to write about. I feel like my life is not very blog worthy...especially after reading so many awesome blogs on a daily basis. One of my biggest concerns as of late is what two dresses I'm going to pick at the end of my internship. I know sooo important right? Maybe my readers (if you care) can help? I'm totally loving this dress...

Champs Elysees
Like loving it. I'm fairly positive it's going to be one that I pick. Maybe it's partly because it's from the Paris line? :)

Also love this one...

But I don't know if it's really me?

Next is this...

HUGE fan of this dress but the medium is too big on top but the small is too small on bottom. Ugh.

I like this dress...

North Shore
But I don't know if it's fancy enough, ya know? I want to get the biggest bang for my buck...well obviously not buck but hopefully you'll know what I mean.

Obviously I love the French line...
Pont Neuf
Too much?

Last but not least...

Sierra Nevada
Loved this dress when I first started, it was the first Shabby dress I tried on and I fell in love. We sold out of my size for a while but some have been returned. 

Seriously...opinions? I'm dying. I get to pick two. If you have any suggestions from the site, please let me know. And let's be honest, I'll be really sad if I come back and there have been zero comments. :(

Wow, so when did the countdown get to month? Thank goodness time is starting to fly. Well, thank goodness for me and Mathew, maybe not so much for my mom. Did you all enjoy Mathew's little post below? We were extremely bored so I told him to write something, just like he mentioned.

Anyways, I just wanted to stop by and say how psyched I am and give a big thank you to all of you who are so excited for us :) It's nice to have some loving support. That's all for today.

Oh and p.s. some of you may have seen my post titled "Disappointed" and some may have noticed that now it's gone. I realized I was having kind of a bad day. I hope I didn't offend anyone...just pretend none of it was ever said if you read it. :)

Almost One Month

Helloooo. I'm back to talk about my life some more.

It's been a busy week...but also an amazing week. I had the week OFF from Shabby Apple! Now I don't mean for that to sound like I dislike working there, I actually am loving it now that I'm in a groove. My excitement comes from my week off of going to Utah. Hallelujah. It was a very very very very very much needed break. My intern coordinator went to Hawaii (jealous) so she had me do my work from home. It was glorious...did I already mention that? So while at home, I had to stay super motivated to do all of my blogging. I was really good Monday-Wednesday and did all my usual hours and it was actually really fun! I was worried I was going to die trying to do so many hours of straight blogging but being able to do it in the comfort of my home and taking breaks whenever I wanted was so awesome! I was so much more productive than usual and it was just great.

So coming home for a week and a half meant I also got to bring my car home. Pay for 7+ days in expensive airport parking? No thank you. It's been great to have my little Stella back home with me. I miss her when she's left all alone in the big city. This also meant that I didn't have to ride the shuttle! Yay! On that note, I don't have to ride the shuttle again until March 23! Shout. for. joy. I actually only have to ride the shuttle three more times. Oh my goodness, I don't know if anyone can understand how absolutely incredible that feels. I thought this crazy schedule would never end but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. (Also, if you look at the calendar on your phone...well at least mine and Mathew's can see April 9 on it...just a little fyi)

My Utah family is throwing me my first bridal shower on March 17. I am soooo excited! I'm so psyched to play with family and friends. Then my Idaho family is throwing me one on March 26. Crazy! It's still pretty surreal to me that this is all happening.

Oh so here is the wedding planning part of the post. Excited? Hopefully. Okay actually there really is nothing to get excited about. We bought a lamp for the guest book table. Yaaaaaay. That's the only planning update. I kind of avoided planning this week because I just wanted a break!

I just know there was something else I was going to post about. Daaaaaangit. Oh soon as I remember I'll just write yet another post!

In case you are wondering, here is a little wedding countdown for you. There are four more trips to Utah, four more Sundays, eight more shifts at JCPenney (most likely), two more holidays, and three, yes *three* more shuttle rides until the wedding. Which equals....34 days....or 33 days if you're like Mathew and just round down once 9 p.m. hits. :)

And no I do not think about all those things I listed everyday...really I just did that for fun for today's post. I only think about the actual days left...and sometimes trips to Utah...but that's really it. Okay I'm done talking. Goodnight.

If you'd like an announcement, please Facebook, email me, comment, or text me your address :) They're gonna be cute and you're not gonna want to miss crepes :)

Cyr Photography

Okay, I just have to take a post and brag about my photographer for a second. She is the absolute best! She was willing to endure below freezing weather to take our engagement pictures. On top of that, she got some incredible shots. She is so creative and does beautiful editing. She also designed the most rockin announcement EVER. We loooove them! She also helped get us an amazing deal to print them. We were having such a hard time knowing what to do because printing announcements is expensive and it's risky to go through other companies because you don't know their quality at all. So basically, Cyr Photography is the best and I am so happy we booked them. One of our best decisions with the wedding planning. I can't wait to see what she does with my bridals (March 15) and the wedding! Ahh, one month and one week. I'm dying. :)
