There has been so much to do lately, it's crazy. I had a whirlwind trip up to Seattle last weekend and then we've got the boy's family in town this weekend and I'm getting pretty antsy to finish these DIY wedding projects. To calm myself I browse through etsy and find lovely, inspiring things to keep me going. Here are some new favorites.

I received my order from happytape just last week and all my packages for etsy orders (not to mention random household items like my flash drive) got a little facelift. I can't wait to use this stuff for Christmas wrapping!

And when I have a bit of money saved up I fully plan on ordering one of these cat beds from likekittysville. I know Ms. B would love something like this!
What do you do when you're really stressed out? Retail therapy seems to be my drug of choice lately, which is unfortunate since I live on unemployment. Well shopping and water aerobics. I attended my first class this week and it was awesome!

New Hair


A tad bit self indulgent, but isn't the inherent nature of a blog self idulgence? Yes. Ponder that! Anyway, this weekend I'm heading up to Seattle for the first of two bridal showers my awesome family and friends are throwing me and my step-mom is going to dye my hair red while I'm up there. I really wanted to change my hair color for the wedding and I've been sporting the black/dark brown thing for a few years now. I'm sort of done for the time being so this is an exciting change. Here's my "inspiration" picture I sent my step-mom and she said it's doable after a bit of color stripping and a brief moment of banana colored hair. Since we got engaged I feel like I've seen a ton of pictures of brides with red hair and I realized that every time I picture myself on my wedding day, my hair is red. I can't wait!
