My Kitchen

Is really messy, but instead of cleaning it I am making a Pintrest board of what I wish my kitchen looked like.

Kitchen 1 Kitchen 3 Kitchen 2 Kitchen 4

Now if I could just get someone to come over and help me 1- Get me motivated or 2-Organize everything for me, we’d be in good shape. Any one with OCD who loves a challenge?


Hair Trick

I never have, and will most likely never be a morning person. Growing up, my mom would wake me up by switching on the light and quickly shutting the door.  Even now Andy doesn’t usually speak to me until i’ve shuffled my way to the kitchen and eaten breakfast. Needless to say, my morning routine is pretty no-frills during the week, and more often than not i’ll just pull my hair back or give it a finger tussle and go. I am very thankful for anything that gives me a few more minutes of sleep or helps me get out the door a little faster. Enter great three step tutorial:

This tutorial is twice as awesome for me because I have hopelessly straight fine hair and without product and a hair dryer, it is really difficult to get any volume or texture.

Side note: I got braces today! This is something i’ve wanted for a long time, and I am sure in a couple of days, when the awful tight feeling and jaw pain go away. Yeah, that’ll be nice.

Headpieces, Veils and Updos Oh My!

It’s starting to hit me that my wedding is only a little over three months away.  We’ve gotten so much of the planning done already, but there is still so much more to do.  Little details like menu cards, table assignments and favor boxes still need to be taken care of.  I keep having visions of my batchlorette party consisting of all my friends, me and a stamp set, filling boxes with cinnamon almonds and labeling them.

One of the simplest, yet most frustrating problems I have is I can’t decide on how I want to wear my hair.   It didn’t really bother me until my wedding day stylist, an amazingly talent friend named Lucy, asked me what I was planning to do with my hair. Did I want to have an updo? Was I going to wear my veil? And exactly how long was my hair now?  I had that moment of panic where all I could think was, “I don’t know, I don’t know, I DON’T KNOW!”.   The length issue is simple enough, all I had to do was look in the mirror, but the other answers are not as easy.  Here are some of the looks I’ve been considering.

Since my hair is only a little longer than shoulder length, some adjustments will have to be made, but it seems like the direction is something messy, partially up, with a veil for the ceremony and some quickly pinned flowers for the reception. Of course I have a couple months to change my mind……
