Life Lately: Vol. 1

So I decided to start this weekly Friday “life recap” for a few reasons. First, I love reading other people’s recaps, as it gives you a glimpse into their life, shopping links, activities, etc. while not getting too detailed or overstepping boundaries. Second, it’s a great way to stay afloat when trying to maintain balance. I often struggle trying to balance my very demanding day job (that includes a 2-3 hour commute daily), this blog (which is WAY more work than it looks- props to bloggers out there), planning a wedding (aka full time job #2), doing my interior design projects on the side (currently only 2), working out daily & trying to maintain friendships and keep in touch with family (hi mom!), all while living across country from 99% of my people. Whew! Busy. Is. Right.

Wedding: I’ve been trying to knock out a lot of the small details now (music details, cake topper, welcome bag items, parent/bridesmaid gifts, etc) since I know a million new things will come up as we approach the big day. Any tips for staying organized?

Clothes: Speaking of wedding, I’m ferociously searching the internet daily for cute, white dresses! I need approximately 2 shower dresses, 1 bachelorette one, and 3 for wedding events. Help! I’ve locked down 2 but still need the *perfect* one for our casual, yet festive BBQ rehearsal dinner. Am I crazy to wear white and eat BBQ?!

Listening to: S Town. My mom turned me onto it and I can’t wait to start listening. Podcasts keep me sane during my long commute and considering I was obsessed Serial & Undisclosed, I think I’ll like this one too. Anyone heard it?

Cooking: All of the Easter food! You saw my post yesterday on the Easter table so today I’m heading to Homegoods (need a few cute decor pieces) and to Whole Foods, as I’ll be making chilled asparagus, spring salad & key lime pie.

Design: I have a friend who recently spilled the beans that she’s got a little bun in the oven so naturally, we’ve already been talking nursery design! In fact, I think she’s already ordered this chandelier – it will go well in any little girl’s nursery/room. (Bonus it’s 20% off today!)

Lastly, good luck to all of you running the Boston Marathon on Monday! I’ll be out watching with some friends and cheering you on. What an accomplishment!
