Help!

Guys…I know everyone says wedding planning is hard, and tiring, and stressful, but I didn’t believe any of those people until now. Before I was like “What? Wedding planning is so fun, I love Pinterest”. Well let me tell you, Pinterest is full of LIES! Have you ever actually clicked on those wonderful wedding pins that are supposed to make wedding planning easy? Well do it one day, they’re also full of lies. They tell you how to have a $2,000 wedding…if you’re a hobo. And then the devil (Pinterest) lets you pin a $10,000 dress. Thanks Pinterest, thanks for the feature that says “Are you sure you want to pin this? It will take up your ENTIRE budget.” Not to mention I’ve never had a harder time making a decision about anything else in my entire life. “Oh, yes I love those centerpieces, that’s exactly what I want” Ten minutes later “Nope, that’s what I want, for sure, that’s it, no kidding”. It’s a neverending cycle. I’m in a trap and I can’t get out.

Someone HELP!!!!!!

Okay, but really, if anyone has any real-life tips they want to share to help me out I’d love to hear anything and everything!

And…Here’s a sneak peak of the sweet Save the Dates coming your way soon (I think you can tell how much Nick LOVES taking pictures)! Enjoy!

Forward Motion, part 2

Well, now Nick and I are an OK State Alumni couple! Time to get those Lifetime Memberships (Christmas/Wedding gift anyone?). We had an amazing weekend with friends and family. We are constantly reminded of how lucky we are to have such a wonderful support group. It’s hard to believe that our lives will no longer be based on semesters, breaks, and classtime, but now on “when Nick is gone” and “when Nick is home”. It’s a bittersweet time in our lives, we’re excited to get started in this new chapter, but also sad to see the college life go (but not the whole “always being broke” part, at least we hope that changes). The countdown to OCS is now at 48 days. We’re looking forward to having some down time before life gets crazy.

Oh, did I mention I’m getting sister? Okay, a sister-in-law, but hey, it’s close right? And did I also mention that she’s replacing me, by name that is. I’m so excited to welcome the NEW Morgan Ray into the family in the near future! Things are going to get prettyyy confusing.

Gotta go, Nick just made the most delicious looking salad. Time to eat! Pictures of graduation coming soon! Until next time…
