Things are looking a little different around here eh? I won a pretty blog template giveaway via a contest held by one of my very favorite blogs, Delightfully Tacky! The fancy new template is made by Sarah of xoSillygrrl on Etsy. I was so excited to win this as she just so happened to have a template with pretty bunting across the top which just so happens to be sort of a reoccurring theme in my wedding. 
So! It's March 23rd. Where are we? Well, it's almost midnight, so, it's almost 42 days to go. Forty-two more days to plan the event of our lives. 
Justin and I finally went shopping for his attire. We found some pants, isn't that exciting?! So far he only has pants and shoes. Ties are on the way. Finding the right vest is proving to be more difficult than one would think. 
I've been doing a bit of wedding crafting on the weekends, slowly plugging away at things. Stamping our little initialed heart onto things, writing place cards and making little paper cones out of old book pages. The old book that has sacrificed itself to the cause is called Run Sheep Run (you can't even google it, google doesn't even know about this book) and is something that I picked up in a thrift store once because it was a pretty teal color. As I've been sitting around ripping out it's pages I've almost wished I'd read it first. The snippets i've read sound kinda good and now I feel bad. Books are sacred!

I've also been harnessing a lot of brain power into planning our Honeymoon. Well, the main part of it is taken care of, thanks to Justin's amazing parents giving us our trip to Disney World. But I've been agonizing (okay maybe not quite agonizing but I did stay up one night until like 1am doing research) over which restaurants to make reservations at, what to do, etc etc etc. We're staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which I'd been flip-flopping over until we watched some youtube videos of people sitting on their balconies watching giraffes and zebras go wandering by. I think my problem is that there is just an overwhelming amount of choices. I want to stay at every hotel, go to every restaurant, ride every get the idea. I keep trying to change my mind about things but thankfully I have Justin to reel me in. I think that I've also been having this same problem with the wedding planning. There is just an overwhelming amount of options, it's difficult to settle with just one choice. Can't I have multiple reception tents set up, each with a different decor theme? Can't I change my shoes 23 times during the day? Making wedding decisions is HARD.

I think my next post I am going to talk about all of the weird wedding-related dreams that I have had over the past several months. I hope this is normal.
