March 2014: Recap & Wrap-Up!

Ummm, did March even happen? No, really. I think this flew by even quicker than February which I don’t know how that’s possible!

March was busy but with lots of good things and I sort of ended up staying at a fairly consistent pace as far as reading goes! My birthday was on the 11th and like usual, my besties TOTALLY spoiled me! Amy got me a May book for all of my wedding details and these awesome copies of The Lunar Chronicles in Spanish! Alyssa got me a pre-order of Dreams of Gods and Monsters (OMG!!!) and a lovely ring holder and the Catching Fire DVD! YAYYY!!

Wedding planning updates! We officially have a DJ and are meeting with a photography company next week, both recommendations from my sister (thank GOD for her and her wedding knowledge)! Things are coming along slowly but surely and I feel like I’m constantly getting overwhelmed but that’s because I’ve become such a hermit and spend all my time reading so I rarely want to make plans or do anything haha! I spend so much time at work and then running errands and cleaning and now wedding planning — those precious moments of down time are not to be wasted! It is really fun seeing it start to come together, though, and I’m planning on doing a lot of DIY things which really DOES take more effort and time, but I like being able to do things myself not only to save money but because I like to do it myself as well as not having to arrange things with other people. I think it adds an extra touch of “personal” and I really take pride in being able to make some of my own decorations and Save the Dates and things like that. It will take time, but should be fun and rewarding to see my hard work come to life!

    I am so impressed with anyone who manages to plan & pull a wedding off, so go you! One of my roommates is wedding planning long-distance(she’s here’s in Texas because she goes to school here, while her fiance is in California where they’re from. Their wedding is going to be in California too, but then they’re moving to Texas soon after).

    I’m really excited to see the results of your review survey!

    Aww, yay for wedding planning turning out great! I’m excited for you (it’s going to be beautiful) and your DIY projects sound mysterious and intriguing. Here’s to hoping it’s a happy April for us both!

    The photographer was one of the first things I booked, haha! Don’t stress wedding stuff – it somehow all comes together in the end 🙂
