The "B" word (the wedding kind)

Happy Wedding Wednesday! It's been forever since I've posted anything wedding planning and wedding-related but I realize I've never written about this:

So you got engaged and you've set a date. What now? The budget is probably the most important wedding planning logistic. 

A recently-engaged friend of mine asked me about how much a wedding costs. This is difficult to answer because everyone's budget and location is different, and location matters a lot (i.e. the average wedding in NYC costs $78,464 versus $19,522 in Arkansas). I advised her to think about vendors, to utilize the Knot's price range tool, and not to be shy to ask for any sort of discounts that might apply to you. Hey, 10% is 10% and it surely adds up when each of your vendors is offering it to you.

The art of "Adulting"

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Some days I'm on my A-game. I make myself breakfast, eat it while reading the news or blogs, shower, and make it out the door on time.

Other days, I eat a boiled egg in the shower and rush around afterwards like a chicken with its head cut off to make it out the door.

Some days I beam at my baby's progress. Other days I cry hysterically because it makes me both happy and sad.

Some days I do all the dishes--other days, I leave all the dishes for my husband to do.

Sometimes I'm compassionate and other times not so much. 

On all of the days, I am trying my best to be my best and do my best.

Basically, there are times I have it together -- like super mom/human together -- and I "adult" really well. I open all my mail. I fold the laundry and put it away. I stay off my cell phone.
