Taking a Timeout

Hi everyone!

So I have some sad news…at least it makes me sad! I’m going to have to take a break from blogging right now. Life and my internship are just crazy busy and I don’t have the extra time to dedicate to blogging.

These past few weeks blogging has become an absolute chore and I’m not enjoying it. I’ve never wanted blogging to feel that way. To me, blogging has always been something fun and something that I love to do. But right now I barely feel like I can relax and have some semblance of a life while completing my internship and two associated projects. I’m overwhelmed as it is and I don’t need blogging to add to that or else I know I will come to hate it. And that is definitely not something I want to happen.

I don’t think I will give up blogging forever, because I honestly believe that I will miss the writing and creative aspect of it….and more importantly I will miss all of you! My hope is to come back to more regular blogging once my internships are done in December…but we’ll see!

Right now my focus needs to be on the life right in front of me and not one that occurs online. I need to dedicate most of my focus to my internship in order to succeed. And I need to dedicate my time outside of that to the people in my life and to things like wedding planning.

I am so sorry to leave all of you right now. I will truly miss my readers and all of the blogs that I read! You all have become such an important part of my life and this entire blogging experience has been wonderful and life changing (in a good way!).

I wish you all the absolute best. Know that I love you! And that I will be thinking of you and catching up with blogs when I can. Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to pop up every now and then and update you with my life. But right now I’m not going to make promises that I may not be able to keep. I hope you understand!

Blogger Meet-up and a New Dress

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve been having a good weekend so far :). And I’m glad you all thought my bridesmaid dress choice was a good one! I’m super excited about it!

Oh and speaking of wedding stuff again…I found a dress yesterday for our engagement pics! I was so excited I tweeted about it hehe.

And several people wanted to see what it looks like so I found a pic to share! The only thing is that I like it better on me than I do on the model haha…but whatevs.

And here’s a shot up close so you can see that there are little polka dots on it!

I’m in love :D. And the good thing is that this dress is totally re-wearable! In fact, I think it will be a perfect dress for our honeymoon!

Okay enough about that. I had another blogger meet-up this past Thursday! Natalie from Southern Fit Foodie was in town for the evening. Over the past few months Natalie and I have become better and better friends. We “met” through Kristen¬†when all of us started an online Bible study sort of thing with Ashley and Brittany. I hadn’t seen her blog before then but after that we began constantly chatting and texting and getting to know one another. We have so much in common and I could tell that we would be good friends!

I was ecstatic when I found out that Natalie was going to be in town. I met her in German Village and we went to a bar called Hey Hey and then went to dinner.

I had SO much fun with Natalie. Seriously it was like we had met before and been friends forever. I absolutely can’t wait to see her in person again. We’re already trying to think of something where I can go meet her in Nashville!

To continue with friend stuff, I have had so much fun hanging out with my bestie here at home! She just moved back home from Cincinnati and it’s great to have her back here. We went for a nice long walk on Friday and last night we had dinner and fro-yo :). YAY for friends, both non-blog and blog ones!

Now it’s time to start getting ready for church! I hope your Sunday is fantastic :).

Bridesmaid Dresses

Hi everyone!!

Now that you know my wedding colors, I thought I would also tell you that we found our bridesmaid dresses on Sunday!! Apparently I’m a really easy bride to shop with because I would easily say no and yes to things and I made a decision rather quickly haha.

There were several things that I wanted to make sure of when shopping for bridesmaid dresses:

  • I didn’t want them to be too expensive. I know that ladies rarely wear their dresses again and I would never want them to waste a bunch of money on something that they wear just once!
  • I wanted a dress that all of my bridesmaids would feel comfortable in.
  • I had it in my head that a chiffon-type dress would go best with my wedding dress.

And I would say that we were successful in all three of those things! The dress was a really good price…I was amazed when I heard what it was! I had three of my bridesmaids go with me, all who have slightly different body types and it looked fabulous on all of them. And it was chiffon :).

So what does it look like??

And yes, it’s in that color! It’s a halter dress, but I love that the neckline is wider and that it’s sweetheart. I had my bridesmaids try on about 6 dresses and this one was by far my favorite. I can’t believe how easy it was to pick it out! Thank goodness :).

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the dress is from Alfred Angelo!

In other news, my new workout plan is going great! The strength workouts that Chris created for me are a definite challenge and it’s so nice to feel like I’ve worked really hard when I’m done….or actually when I’m done with one set haha.

My two favorite moves so far are the close grip push-ups on a bench and the hand walk-outs.

The close grip push-ups target your triceps and wow, they are definitely harder for me than regular push-ups!

Um yea…these are really hard! But I liked doing them. They made me feel kind of bad-ass….no idea why haha. You definitely need to try them!

And my schedule was switched around a bit this week so I have tomorrow off :)…yay for a long weekend! I hope you all have a great day!
