About that …

 

 

Holy bananas, people. I know I’ve been straight-dreadful at posting lately. Life not only caught up with me, but completely bowled me over.

So, you know I’ve been blogging for The Broke-Ass Bride as their new Real Weddings contributor. It’s super awesome, I’m learning tons and it’s a lot of work. But in the bestfreakingwaypossible. It’s a great venue for writing for me and also being able to reach out and remember how exciting that post-wedding halo is. Brides get STOKED to have their stuff appear on a blog they love. I would know. That’s how I’ve felt with the Offbeat Bride post, the Broke-Ass Bride post and Kat’s recap on Persimmon Images.

On top of this, and my regularly scheduled real job, I’ve been asked to edit a second book for someone I have already edited a book for.

Also, it snowed. So I finally was able to get out on my snowboard. Aussie and I miraculously had a day off together and he was even more miraculously able to get his hands on his work pass, so we got to spend a whole glorious day cruising the mountain. It was a nice respite from reading words constantly. It was a perfect bluebird day, there were plenty of powder pockets to be destroyed and our playlists couldn’t have been more appropriate.

Also, the tickets for Shannypantses wedding this summer are booked, and I ordered a smokin’ hot dress for it.

I’m seeking out a couple new business possibilities right now as well, so we’ll see what comes to fruition. Keep your fingers crossed!

Finally … I freaking want to go to this concert SOOOO BAD. If only money did, in actuality, grow on trees.

For Serious: Help A Sistah Out.

OK, so, you guys have seen me drop the Broke-Assness here before … she’s the one who led me to Kat and Justin, she’s the one who had the fantastical craft pom idea.

Shit, I even applied for a job with her. And she highly complimented me. She’s one of the first wedding blogs I started reading. And I definitely think she’s the first blog I commented on … and now I’m an addict.

Anyway, Dana needs help. And, like me, she hates asking for it. But she did, so I’m doing what I can.

Dana needs blogland to spread the word. And I know a few of you have your own blogs. So … do it. Please.
Dana needs money. Even one dolla, make you holla.
Dana needs recipes. So … dig out those rolodexes of family comforts and email them to me or her (contact her here for more info).

Please help her out. She’s been a huge inspiration to me in so many ways.

DIY, DIT or DIA?

So, I’ve been thinking about ways I can spruce up the reception site without forking over the arm, leg and half a soul it would cost for the professional decor job you see in movies. And can I just say … for someone like me, those frou-frou, hoity-toity gilded numbers are shit. Not the shit, just shit.

So, we’ve already been over the wonderful, fantabulous, splendiferous need for tons and tons of color … but, well … how? I was stalking my favorite bridal blogs today, and decided to click on over to the Broke-Ass Bride — who herself has a penchant for color — and discovered these two wonderful ideas:

Christmas Ornament Decor

DIY CD craft

craft pom wedding DIY

Yes. Craft poms. Love.

She even mentioned filling a clear cylindrical vase with these bright beauties. Brilliant.
