Miss Dalmatian nominated Mrs. Magic’s inspirational post on ways to incorporate buttons into your wedding decor!
There are some aspects of wedding planning I am not that into. Like, the hard parts. I don’t really feel like picking out a florist and the honeymoon, while fun to think about, seems really daunting (and freakin’ expensive!) to plan, so I’d rather just ignore that right now.
Instead, I am using my tried and true method of making myself feel productive even when I am not getting anything meaningful accomplished. Like, you know, on days when you have to do laundry, and clean out your really extraordinarily messy car, and go exercise, and weed the garden, but you don’t really feel motivated at all, so you put things like Take a Shower and Starbucks on your to do list, just so you can feel like you completed a task or two?
Wait, you don’t do that? And your car’s not extraordinarily messy??? It’s just me? Oh.
Well, anyways, from my last post you may have predicted that my latest obsession is buttons. They are really freakin’ easy to make, plus I have a ton of fabric to continue making them. I already made buttons for the napkin rings, so I needed to find other projects that involved buttons. Here is a sampling for your viewing pleasure!
This kinda kills two birds with one stone, now doesn’t it? If I make button bouts, that eliminates the need for boutonniÃ¨res from the florist, thereby decreasing the florist bill, which is the reason I am avoiding the florist in the first place! I am sooooooooooo smart.
What: The Melting Pot has a “Girl’s Night Out” Special, where ladies can get cheese fondue, salad, and chocolate fondue for $19! Guys are welcome to come too—you just might have to pay more for your fondue goodness.
Being married is awesome. But post wedding emotions are so confusing!
Like Mrs. Panther wrote about recently, I am having a lot of post-wedding feelings. Like, a LOT. And they are all jumbled up and are making me feel really confused and emotional and disorganized and stressed and happy.
First off, I think, like many of you who posted on Mrs. Panther’s posts, I just feel a bit of a void where wedding planning was. … read more
The big day is here! I slept in my wedding earrings so I wouldn’t forget them. I’ve got my Spanx on under my sweats and am about to head to the store—Miss Leave it ‘Til the Last Minute needs to get a few more things!
Tomorrow, that’s MRS. Leave it ‘Til the Last Minute to you!
And now for the highly overly dramatic lessons learned. Spoiler Alert: References to Season 2 of The Walking Dead are ahead. If you are behind and don’t want to continue reading, just know I’m getting married today and love you all!
Dude, we lost our cat, Monster, on Wednesday. … read more
I did it anyway. And now I have less than zero confidence in weather forecasters (no offense, meteorological bees!), and a whole heap of anxiety about the weather.
October 21st Weather Prediction / Screen shot from Weather.com
When I first started writing this post (on 10-21-2011) this was the forecast from Weather.com, whom I thought was the #1 weather authority. They themselves changed their mind about my wedding day weather no less than 5 times on October 21st, going from mostly cloudy to partly cloudy to scattered showers (the horror!) to mostly cloudy. Yes, I checked it, like, twenty seven times. What, is that a lot or something?
You might be thinking “Why are you freaking out, Magic? You are always so stressed! Take a chill pill, yo, that weather forecast looks fine!”
I’m not talking about gifts from guests…obviously those are necessary (just kidding!…not really…). I’m talking about the bride and groom giving gifts to each other. I mean, of course it’s not necessary…but it’s fun!
I’m not sure Mr. Magic is getting me a gift or not. If he does, I hope he gets me something like this, but maybe a tad smaller. And less expensive. And, you know… fake.
