About Me

My photo
I'm a 23 year old Business Systems Analyst planning a DIY-heavy wedding to the love of my life on 9 . 10 . 11. Other then wedding planning, I spend most of my time trying to stay in shape or playing with my 3 dogs...Gabby, Dudley, and Tyson. I hate cleaning and almost never go a day without wearing something purple, and I hope you can keep up with my ADD blogging style!

Seriously - When Did It Become JULY!?!?!?

Ummm, yeah, this morning when I was writing my post about the big change in my life I seemed to completely forget that today is the first freaking day of July!!!!  Yeah, ummm, 2 months left of planning ::cue squeals of excitement mixed with shudders of nervousness::

Seeing as it is a new month, I can't forget to share with you my plans:

Oh yes, July will be a busy one...

On the non-wedding related front my last day at my current job is July 13, and I start my new job on July 18.  Then I have a hair appointment on the 30th.

Now, on the wedding related front:
  • This weekend - finish my damn invitations
  • July 7 - mail said invitations
  • July 9 - Make candy buffet bags/tags
  • July 10 - Turn the DIY string balls into DIY string ball curtains
  • 14th-15th - Since I have two days off before I start my new job I plan on making sure to finish my shoes (so they'll be ready for my second fitting) and probably work on my topiary balls as well as my pearl bouquet
  • July 17 - Bryan will be helping me make columns for our ceremony space
  • July 18 - I'll have my second fitting!  (and I promise to try and get more pictures of my hoarder seamstress' house!)
  • July 24 - finish the topiary ball thingies that will be used as cocktail hour centerpieces
  • July 30 - make bar signage (what's available as well as signature drinks)
  • July 31 - I'm hoping we'll have gotten some RSVPs back and we can start the seating chart!
Definitely going to be a busy month - but it doesn't even compare to what August is going to look like!

Are you going to be having as busy of a July as I am?

And don't forget you can always check out my calendars and timelines on my "Countdown to the Big Day" tab!!!


  1. WOW you are sooo close!! So glad I found your adorable little blog!!! I'm also hosting a giveaway this week for a beautiful pair of pearl earrings, please feel free to stop on by and enter to win. Have a great weekend!!!

  2. Holy crap! I'm just busy with two other weddings this month!

  3. i am dreadinggg... july... ugh my wedding date is a week after you.. whyyy....

  4. You've probably already done this, but MAKE SURE you double and triple check the weight/size of your invites with the post office before you send them out. I had mine checked about a week in advance, when I went to send them they made me pay an additional .20 per envelope because the person who checked them out was wrong. Not what you want to hear when you're standing in line at the post office!

    Good luck with all of your project this month! It's going to go fast :)

  5. I wanna see your bouquet progress!
