Little List

1. I spent this weekend visiting Banan in Indianapolis with my parents so I spent all day Monday thinking it was Sunday and forgot to write a post. (I suck, I know)

2. I am thisclose to buying a pair of Blowfish Shoes Garrens. I've been dying to add these to my closet and this week might be the week I do.

3. Finding an egg of Starburst jellybeans in Jus's Easter basket was the best treat. It makes me sort of sad to know that  have a year until I can get more.

4. Last Friday I woke up at 4:30 to catch the Royal Wedding. I know it may sound silly but it was totally worth it. It was so much fun to share such a magical event with my twitter friends and to share my excitement with everyone else that woke up so early to see the wedding. I thought absolutely every single aspect was lovely.

5. Speaking of the Royal Wedding. I loved all of the hats & fascinators worn by the guests. I fully think that Americans should pick up this trend and I plan to wear one to the weddings I'm attending as a guest this year. One of my favorites from the wedding was Princess Beatrice's hat. I know I'm probably one of the only people you know that liked it, but I did, so there. Beatrice rocked it and that's all that matters.

6. I love that spring time is in full effect. Flowering trees make me wish for one for the front of the Behemoth. I'm thinking a dogwood, or perhaps a magnolia, or maybe even a cherry tree. One of the greatest surprises in buying a foreclosed home is discovering what the garden holds. So far, our yard is full of daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, peonies, chives, & a little asparagus. I can't wait to see what pops up next.

7. I'm not trying to downplay the other huge news from this weekend. What the brave men & women do in our army is no joke. At times like this I'm incredibly proud of our army & leaders. However, I could do without the people on twitter & facebook that are negative one way or another.

8. While visiting Banan we visited two of my favorite places. Midland Arts & Antiques Market and Docs Architectural Salvage. I found a shelf, a sconce, a painting, a picture frame & two glass jars.

9. As you may have noticed I've been blogging once a day instead of twice. This month is super busy wedding wise for me and I find that I don't have the time/energy/creativity to think of a second post every day. So some days will have two, others will have one.

10. Last week we got the email that our wedding pictures are done! 6 1/2 months after our wedding I got to feast my eyes on over 1000 photos commemorating the happiest day of my life. I can't wait to share a full recap with you all!

I thought Beatrice's hat looked like something straight out of Dr. Seuss. And yeah, discovering what you have in your gardens after moving in to a new home is fun. Asparagus? Yummy!

ErinMSW said...

Oh, and I can't wait for your recaps!

Abby said...

Ahh! I cannot wait to see your wedding photos. I'm sure they are lovely.
And I like what you said about how people should lose the negativity concerning the major news this week. It only makes both sides look silly.

I liked Beatrice's hat in a very weird way. I just love all crazy hats and I'm totally with you in bringing that trend to the states!

Fun stuff! I'm a little ashamed to admit this, but it was two years before I managed to get our wedding pictures from the photographer (my fault not his, haha) Congrats on yours, they look like they're beautiful!

Amanda said...

So exciting about your pictures!

Oh, My Darling said...

I too have been lusting after those shoes -- hope you decide to go for them!!!

Megan said...

i'm a new follower & absolutely love your blog!!

Lauren @The Little Things We Do.... said...

can't wait to see all your lovely photos! getting photos back is always fun....but even more so when you waited months to see them!

oh...and while i didn't "like" princess beatrice's hat, i did think it was interesting and could appreciate that she took a fashion risk. however....i was watching "fashion police" at the gym (my guilty pleasure) and ever since joan rivers compared the hat to a diaphragm, i just can't look at it the same. haha! but i really do hope you bring back the hat trend - i think it's so fun!

Amanda said...

I love that you loved the wedding--it was one of my favorite things about last weekend.

I have to say I didn't really like Beatrice's hat--too out there for me :)
