I haven’t updated in almost a week, but I have been SO SO busy. This weekend I was able to finish up all the wedding DIYs that I had to do, which included making the boutonnieres for the guys, doing little touch ups to the bouquets, and decorating the arch. My older sister helped with a lot of it and I probably wouldn’t have been able to do it without her! I also spent a lot of time shopping all weekend trying to gather all the last minute things that I need. You guys….I get married in like FIVE DAYS! AHHH! There have been so many hiccups with planning this wedding and things not working out for me. I really hope it turns out good. Here are a few pictures of some of the things my sister and I made!
The one with the book page heart is for the groomsmen and the one with the book page flower is for Andy (the groom). I didn’t include pictures of the bouquets, but they are similar. The bridesmaids have little book page hearts in theirs and I have a book page flower in mine to match Andy’s.
This is the arch that my sister and I decorated. We still need to put one more strand of the purple flowers in the back and also trip the fabric at the bottom, but that’s pretty much what it’ll look like when it’s finished. It took us so long to do it. I think we were outside for like four hours yesterday. I really hope it survives the drive to the venue.
The weekend before last I went to a St. Patrick’s Day parade with my my mom, cousin, and her son. It was SOOO hot outside, but pretty fun. Left is a picture of my mom and I. Right is a picture of my cousin’s son and I drinking frozen lemonade, which were amazing.
A couple pictures from actual St. Patrick’s Day. Andy, me, and my sister. And the little had I wore. It was a really fun night. I went out with my mom and then around 10ish Andy and my older sister came out.
I read two Tarryn Fisher books last week. I finished Bad Mommy, which was pretty good but different than what I expected it to be. I gave it 3.5 stars. I absolutely hated (actually LOVED) F*ck Love. It made me so angry, but I could not stop reading it.
I think I will finally read The Song Rising next. I wanted to give it my full attention and I also wasn’t ready for it. I’ve been so busy, so I knew I wouldn’t be reading much. I think I will be starting it next week and I am so stoked. I got some cool Bone Season bookmarks in the mail (I’ll post in my haul post next week) and can’t wait to use them with this book! I am obsessed with this series and Warden.
Here is a current picture of my reading area in my living room! I’ll eventually have a room for all my books and my new chaise, but I have to wait a few months for that to happen. I also need to clean out the other room, because it’s pretty backed with boxes and wedding stuff. It’s good for now though. Once the wedding is over and we catch up on things, I will be getting new bookcases…so that’ll be when I move everything into the other room. For now it’s like a storage room and it’s baaaad! I plan to go on a MAJOR decluttering spree of the house once things get back to normal again.
Random flowers. I am obsessed with the cacti and the color of them. And I am living for the pink roses. I want to go back and buy them all.
Random picture of the lighthouse we bought for the backyard and a ferris wheel when I went to the carnival with my niece, nephew, and older sister.
That’s pretty much it for this post. I wanted to give you guys an update since I haven’t in awhile and I am still here. We have family coming in all week, starting tonight. It’s going to be a crazy busy week for me. Should be fun though! 😀 I’ll have my book haul (it’s a pretty big haul) and wrap up posts next week.
