A little bit of life
This is the catch-all category. Here you’ll find miscellaneous happenings and anecdotes from my everyday life.
This is the catch-all category. Here you’ll find miscellaneous happenings and anecdotes from my everyday life.
Everybody’s doing it. You know, writing a “Here’s-what-I-did-in-2011-and-here’s-what-I’m-going-to-do-in-2012″ blog post. And I’m finally jumping on that bandwagon. I’m only four days late.
I run on my own schedule.
2011 was a fun year! And because I’m sure y’all have already read a bunch of these kinds of lists and I don’t want to bore you, I’ll just rattle off a few quick highlights. I’m sure this is probably more for my benefit/nostalgia/enjoyment than yours anyway.
–2011 saw more snow days for my little Arkansas university than it had seen in 30+ years.
–Said snow days occurred as a result of one heck of a crazy snowstorm everyone dubbed, “The Snowpocalypse.”
–Then came, “The Rainpocalypse.”
–The highlight of the year was definitely completing an internship in Spain!
–I decided to take the LSAT and possibly apply to law school.
–I started my senior year of college.
–I got to TP a basketball court.
–2011 closed out with a (semi)-winter storm and plenty of Christmas and New Year’s parties.
Now… for 2012.
I’m not much for resolutions. It’s not something I’ve ever really done and I’m much more of a go-with-the-flow person as opposed to making a plan and sticking to it tooth and nail.
I jokingly told a friend that I had made a one-day resolution to cheer for the Denver Broncos when they played the Kansas City Chiefs even though I am a huge Chiefs fan. I only did it because I didn’t want the Oakland Raiders to go to the playoffs, which they would have if Kansas City won. A few minutes after the game started though, I figured out that if Oakland lost their game to the San Diego Chargers, it didn’t matter if Denver won or lost; Oakland would be denied a playoff berth. (If you’re unfamiliar with the NFL playoff system, let me tell you, it can get a little crazy!)
So I said heck with the
Donkeys, uhh… Broncos, and cheered all-out for my Chiefs!
And it all ended up working out ok. The Chiefs won and Oakland lost! Yay!
But, I digress.
Back to New Year’s resolutions.
Which I don’t really make.
With the exception of sarcastic one-day resolutions pertaining to football games that I actually make for selfish reasons.
And then break ten minutes into them.
I have problems. I know this.
But for real. A couple days before the new year, I downloaded a year in photos app for my iPhone. Y’all know what I’m talking about. Take one picture a day, every day, for 365 days.
Now, I’m really not a fan of such long-term commitments, mostly because I don’t like planning and being tied down, but also because I’m pretty sure I’ll break them. Nevertheless, I’m attempting this one. And by attempting, I mean keeping up with it as long as I can and not caring too much when I miss a day.
I’ve kept up with it so far though! Four days… impressive, I know.
Here are the first three photos and captions. (I haven’t uploaded the fourth to my computer yet. It and subsequent photos will hopefully follow.)
New Year’s Cookies! This is a family tradition. Every year my aunt makes these delicious German treats. This year I had at least six of them. I lost count after that, so the final tally isn’t exactly known. Oh well, it’s better that way. I’d probably rather not know how many I ate. I tend to overindulge a bit during all the holiday parties.
I have problems. I know this.
Being a cat is rough. Just ask my cat, Turvy, and he’ll tell you all about it. He gets to spend all day inside and stick his head in the bag of cat food and eat whenever he wants. And he’s supposed to be an outside cat. Pshhh. My mother spoils him.
Family Christmas supper at the local restaurant. This was like the twelfth (and final… thank goodness) family Christmas we’ve had this year. I love my family. I really, really do. And I love get-togethers and parties! But we like to eat in my family, so there is always tons of food at our get-togethers and my stomach has finally said enough.
The flip side is that in a week, I know I’ll be back at school dying to have a home-cooked meal again, so I really shouldn’t complain.
And that’s all for now, folks!
I hope y’all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year’s with your friends and families and that you can approach each day in 2012 as it comes, with a smile on your face!
This weekend I decided to have one of my best friends dye my hair blonde.
I’m a fairly impulsive person and I like change. And this was one of those times when I woke up in the morning, decided I needed a change, and did it.
And because I am detail-oriented and extremely logical (not) I only bought one box of dye, not thinking about the fact that I have three times the amount of hair on my head as a normal woman (for real, my hair is thick, thick, thick. And long.) My friend started dyeing my hair around 10 p.m. (after Sally’s was closed) and about five minutes in, I said to her, “Wouldn’t it be terrible if we run out of dye because I have so much hair?”
Fast forward almost an hour. I have three sections of hair left and we have no more dye.
Not dyed. (There’s a difference.)
My hair was dyed. (Well, part of it was.)
And because my friend is awesome at dyeing hair, she figured out a way to take some of the hair dye from my underneath layers and apply it to the sections at the top of my head.
After washing and drying my newly colored hair, I realized that evidently it’s not that easy to make a brunette a blonde using a seven dollar box of hair dye from Sally’s.
My hair was lighter than before. But not blonde.
Because my hair had been dyed red perviously and faded to a lighter golden color, it took some of the blonde dye and that was fine. But my dark brown roots which had grown out did not take any blonde at all.
Now, let me make a disclaimer here and say that I do not keep up with pop culture at all. I didn’t even know what ombré hair was until a couple days ago, but evidently it’s popular with celebrities. (Thank you, Google, for enlightening me.)
So now I’m super trendy with my not-blonde hair and my dark brown roots.
Maybe this is a sign that I shouldn’t go blonde.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’ve neglected this blog. I’m sorry.
I know y’all wait with bated breath (pet peeve cliché right there) to read about the super exciting details of my life and y’all’s worlds cave in when I don’t post an update every day…
Okay, maybe not.
I’m pretty sure I only have three readers anyway, so sorry to you three. Let’s move on.
Life recently has consisted of…
–Thanksgiving. My favorite holiday of all time. It’s ten times better than Christmas in my opinion. No gifts. (I’m so not a gifts person.) Just quality time with friends and family, (I’m all about the quality time) and lots and lots of food. I’m all about the food too. I love to fill my plate with everything: turkey, mashed taters, sweet taters, green bean casserole, stuffing, and then cover my entire plate in gravy. Yes please, amen, thank you Jesus. Gravy is all that is right and holy in this world.
–Basketball. I’m still totally into football (even though my Chiefs are quickly playing their way to a last place standing in the AFC West) but basketball is my favorite sport and the college basketball season is gearing up. Several weeks ago my little Arkansas college made national headlines after our first home game of the season.
That is the Yahoo homepage. We’re famous for earning basketball’s best technical foul. And it’s a doozy. If you dont’ know what I’m talking about, you should do a Google search for, “JBU TP game.” It’ll change your life.
ESPN even aired footage of the game and gave commentary on our crazy tradition during its show, “Around the Horn.” We were on national television! It was a pretty big deal for our little bitty school.
And for one last bit of importnat life info, (that is probably not all that important to most people, but I’ll tell y’all anyway because that’s the kind of person I am…)
–I am turning into an old person. I just had a birthday earlier this week and now I go to bed at like 11:00 every night. Considering that I am a night owl and I am also a college student, this early bedtime business is kind of ridiculous. But I’m also not complaining. Sleeping is wonderful. I just haven’t done a whole lot of it the past three years of my life. It’s like I’m rediscovering my affections for an old friend.
That wording was weird. It’s past 11:30. I’m not thinking clearly. It’s past my bedtime. I’m going to bed.
There is nothing about rain in this post. Sorry.
But it is about Spain!
It already feels like it’s been a lifetime since I was there. But every once in a while I get a happy little reminder about my summer in Spain.
The other day was one of those days.
Let me preface this by explaining that websites in Spain were all in Spanish. (Makes sense, right?) Luckily, my computer would automatically translate the website into English after a few seconds and the next time I visited that site, it would remember the language I last viewed the page in and it would pull the site up in that language without the translation delay.
I read Google News a lot while I was in Spain and for some reason I guess I haven’t read it that much since I got back to the States.
I didn’t realize how long it had been since I visited the site until I pulled it up the other day and this is what I saw.
After a few seconds it switched over to English, but it was a sweet memory of a wonderful place.
Today I’m missing Spain.
It is finished.
It’s been finished for a while. Nine days to be exact.
(I’m talking about the LSAT, in case you didn’t know.)
I’m just waiting for October 26 when I get my score back. I’m trying not to over-analyze how I did; I know I didn’t bomb it, but I don’t think I knocked it out of the park either. I’m leaving it at that and just trying to not think about it.
My life post LSAT has been just as busy. I spent 13 hours in a darkroom over the course of two days last week trying to stumble my way through developing film and prints for an assignment that was due today. I had no idea what I was doing but my photos still turned out well (praise the Lord) and I even had fun (a little bit).
My assignment was to shoot several rolls of film around my little college town’s historic downtown area. I took my dSLR along with me because it’s like my trusty security blanket compared to this newfangled film camera.
You know you grew up in the digital age when you think a film camera is “newfangled.”
But anyway, I found this old abandoned church and I fell. in. love.
I just love abandoned buildings. Remember the old house I explored in Kansas last Thanksgiving? Check out the photos here in case you missed it.
Well, this church had a tree growing out of its walls. It was so interesting. I took the RAW file and played around with it in Photoshop just for fun. I usually don’t use a lot of actions, but I ran one that I thought might give the photo a fun look. After I tweaked it a little bit, I really liked it.
Here it is. Feel free to tell me what you think.
I just wish I could have gone inside and explored more! What a beautiful building.
Until next time,
Let me take y’all back to last Friday.
It was the day before the LSAT and I had been telling myself all week that I was going to take at least one full-length practice test before Saturday. And surprise, surprise, I hadn’t done it yet. I told myself I was going to do it that afternoon. No excuses.
But something came up. An immediate pressing issue. An urgent situation. That I had to give my full attention to.
Some friends invited me to go to a pumpkin patch.
How could I say no? It was a beautiful fall afternoon and y’all know me… I’m all about ditching my responsibilities to have fun.
It’s a problem.
So I went and I had a blast and I didn’t regret not studying for even a second.
The albino one is mine. I loved it right when I saw it. I’d never seen an albino pumpkin before. I figured “albino pumpkin” probably wasn’t the technical term so I Googled it when I got home and I actually couldn’t find a scientific name for it. There are other nicknames out there like ghost pumpkins and snowballs. But no real name. Sad day. You let me down, Google.
I can’t even tell you. That place was good for my soul. It was way out in the boonies of Arkansas at the end of a dirt road. The guy who owned the place had the sweetest southern drawl. The patch covered five acres of wide open land. There was dirt.
Yeah. That’s right. There was dirt.
I think that was the most exciting part for me.
It wasn’t good, rich Kansas dirt, but it was the closest thing to Kansas dirt I’ve seen in over two months.
T minus two… DAYS.
I’m taking the LSAT on Saturday. Holy cow.
I haven’t studied in over a month. I meant to. I just got… busy. And October 1 crept up on me fast.
I don’t even know if I want to go to law school.
I’m trying to tell myself, “This is only a practice test. Just go into it with the attitude that it doesn’t even matter. It might be all for nothing anyway so don’t even worry about it.”
A lot of good that’s doing me.
Five minutes ago I looked up directions to the testing center and just doing that gave me a huge pit in my stomach.
What have I gotten myself into? Is voluntary torture like this even legal? (Update: I totally just re-read this and laughed. I’m asking questions about the legality of the LSAT… haha.)
There’s a saying among law students that in your first year, they scare you to death; in your second year, they work you to death; and in your third year they bore you to death. Well I’m starting to believe it because I’m already scared out of my mind to take the LSAT and that’s only supposedly a small taste of what’s to come.
Did you know that I am only allowed to enter the testing center with a gallon size plastic bag? In it, I can only have my admissions ticket, my ID, my wallet, my keys, No. 2 pencils (I HATE pencils), erasers, tissues (to stop the bleeding when my brain aneurysm ruptures), a 20 oz. beverage in a plastic container and a snack for break time. Anything else and they kick me out.
I’m worried I’m going to mess that up! Which would make it easy, I guess… no LSAT, no law school. Done. Decision made.
Not really. I don’t want to shut any doors just yet.
And now I’ll leave you with a low-quality (sorry) picture I pulled off Google Images.
…my blog. It’s been over a month since my last post. I’m so sorry about that! I’ve missed y’all.
…Spain. I found this picture on Pinterest yesterday. (you can find the original here:)
Holy cow beautiful.
I never knew Spain had such beautiful sunflower fields. I was only six and a half hours away from this place while I was in Málaga this summer. Why didn’t I know about this?
I love sunflowers. They remind me of Kansas.
Minus the whole cliff in the background thing. That’s not like Kansas at all.
In this past month I have…
…started my senior year of college. And come down with a major case of Senioritis, which I’ve actually had for the past three years. I put off my homework and all I want to do is have fun times with fun people. Can I major in that please?
…not studied for the LSAT. And I’m taking it on Saturday. Is there a problem here? My logical reasoning skills say yes.
…got an iPhone! Actually, I did that this morning. It’s fantastic. And a time waster. But hey, I don’t care all that much about my homework anyway so we’re all good, right?
Which brings me back to… I miss…
…my Kansas phone number. I had to get an Arkansas phone number with my new iPhone and I just realized that for some reason I was really attached to my old Kansas phone number. Is that dumb? Yes? Ok, I’ll get over it.
Thanks for loving me even though I miss trivial things like phone numbers and don’t blog for a month.
Y’all are wonderful. I’ll be back soon. In less than a month, I promise!
Well, I’m a grown up now. I don’t know when this happened, but it happened.
Yesterday I moved into a house with nine fabulous women. A real house. Not a dorm. I am so excited about this.
Tomorrow is my first day of my senior year of college.
I can’t believe I’m in this place in life. One year of undergrad left and potentially three years of law school to go.
I have been studying so much for the LSAT this week. So much that I have not even taken a single photo. I’m sorry.
There is this little gem though.
Amidst my LSAT studying, I had to take a break and do something fun and relaxing. So I skimmed through the random folder of photos on my desktop that I recently pulled off my portable hard drive and brought up this picture I took last fall.
I loved the colors and serenity of the image. Bright and happy. Peaceful and calming. All at once.
Hmmm… sounds like my life.
The possibilites on the horizon are bright and exciting and I can’t wait to see where I’ll be this time next year. And even though so many details in my life are unknown, I still have incredible peace. I have no idea how I got to this point in my life, but that gives me even more peace because I know without a doubt that all of this is the Lord’s doing. And I know His plans are perfect.
Now… bring on senior year!
Well, I’m actually going to do this. I’m preparing to go to law school.
The jury’s still out.
Haha. Let the bad lawyer jokes begin.
But in all seriousness, I’ve begun studying for the LSAT. It took a lot of debating and contemplating the pros and cons of law school (meaning I was basically indecisive and procrastinating) but I finally came to the conclusion that I would regret it if I never at least tried.
I bought an LSAT study book last week, thinking it might be the kick in the butt I needed to get me going. I’m a person who feels horribly guilty if I ever waste my money, so I thought that if I actually bought a book, my conscience wouldn’t let me let the book just sit around and not get put to use.
This is the book I bought.
I liked what I read when I flipped through it in the bookstore. The explanations were fairly easy to follow and it seemed like the book did a good job of teaching different strategies to help work through the problems.
There was just one problem with the book.
I couldn’t stand the cover.
It was boring and not pretty and I told myself I could not stand looking at that woman every time I picked up the book for the next two months.
So I procrastinated from using the book to study just a little bit longer so I could decorate it. I used some stationary I had laying around and a few mismatched stickers and created this new book cover.
It’s no masterpiece, but at least I won’t go crazy looking at it for two months. And I like the smiley face button I taped on it as an afterthought. It’s the little things like that that make me happy and keep me going.
So far, I’ve taken a diagnostic test and read through a couple logic game strategies. And I’m actually enjoying it! In fact, the more I read and study, the more I get an overwhelming desire to conquer this test. It’s a new challenge for me and I always love a good challenge. It brings out the competitive side in me. And believe me, I can get super competitive. Which in this case, I see as a good thing because it motivates me to study more.
And seeing as I only have six weeks until the October LSAT, I need all the motivation I can get.
Wow. Wow, wow, wow. Some days I still can’t believe I’m actually in Spain getting to do and see so many amazing things. That thought hit me again this weekend when I went to Granada to help shoot video footage for a project some people here at the center are working on.
I learned how to record audio, shot some great photos to accompany the video, got to tour lovely Granada and it was all in a day’s work!
I love my internship.
We left Thursday morning and it took us about two hours to travel from Málaga to Granada. Here’s a map for all you visual people (like me).
I absolutely loved seeing the countryside during our drive. There are mountains! Big, tall mountains. The Sierra Nevada Mountains to be exact.
I never would have guessed there would be such diverse terrain in this area. Málaga is right on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, but drive north an hour and you’ve got beautiful hills and olive groves, drive another hour and you’ve got snow-capped peaks.
This Kansas girl is used to flat, dry land as far as the eye can see. New experiences abound everywhere in Spain.
Here are a few shots I took as we walked around the city.
It’s just like Holes!
And let me tell you, Granada was just about hot enough to feel like the desert in Holes. Málaga has been hot, but not compared to Granada. Málaga usually has a nice breeze blowing in off the Mediterranean which keeps it about 10-15 degrees cooler than inland cities like Granada.
Plants are a big deal. Obviously.
Plants may be big, but doors are not. This was seriously the front door to a house.
I just had to throw in a picture of the tapas we had. The cheese was amazing. And the wine. Not the olives. I don’t like olives. But I like olive oil.
I don’t understand myself sometimes…
This guy is the reason we went to Granada in the first place. He is a graffiti artist with a pretty cool testimony.
And if I knew Spanish, I would tell you about it.
But I don’t, so I won’t. Sorry.
I’ll just show you more photos.
So that was graffiti in Granada.
It took us all day to get our footage and photos. Half of our team went back to Málaga at 10 that night, but myself and another girl stayed behind to go to feria.
Now, I don’t exactly know what a feria is other than it’s some sort of Catholic thing and people dress up in flamenco dresses (well, women dress up, I should say) and go dancing. There’s also food and rides. Kind of like the Kansas State Fair.
Minus the Pronto Pups.
And the giant butter cow sculpture.
If any of y’all have been to the Kansas State Fair, you know what I’m talking about. If not, you need to go. It’ll change your life.
My friend scored some real flamenco dresses for us to wear to the feria and they were super fun!
I might have looked Spanish for the night, but I still felt like a guiri (pronounced similar to the English word giddy). Guiri is the slang word Spaniards use for non-Spaniards.
Forgive me. It was dark and I am totally, completely, 100 percent against using my built-in flash, so the lighting is horrible in the following photos.
But you get the gist.
You must have a flower in your hair for feria.
Real Spaniard women wear their flowers directly on top of their head, dead center.
I opted out of that. I like my flower where it is.
My lovely friend.
Welcome to feria. There are lights everywhere.
This was cool. There were people in giant hamster balls running around on the water. If I hadn’t been in a super tight flamenco dress, I would have tried it out myself.
These are legit flamenco dancers. Notice the flower dead center on the top of their heads.
Now… story time.
We got to feria at 1:00 in the morning. We left at 3:00. We didn’t get back to our hostel until 5:00.
We took the wrong bus.
It was a disaster.
The city runs special buses during feria that are just for feria, so I guess we assumed that as long as we got on one of the feria busses, it would take us back to where we got on.
We ended up way far away from our hostel in some really quiet part of town. We got off the wrong bus and walked for a long time until we found another bus stop. We thought it was the right bus stop.
We walked some more. And some more.
And some more.
And then we saw a bus. We flagged it down, hoping it would be the right bus.
The bus driver told us to wait at a nearby stoplight for the right bus that would be coming by there in just a few minutes.
Red flag anyone?
Why would we wait for a bus at a place that was not a bus stop?
Because the bus driver was wrong.
We waited at that stop light for over half an hour.
That same wrong bus passed by again twice, but still no right bus.
And then finally, finally!, we saw a taxi.
We ran out in the middle of the street and waved our arms and flagged that blessed taxi down.
Surely it would be able to take us to our hostel, right?
Or so the driver said.
He had to go switch out his car. That’s all I got out of the conversation.
And then he drove away.
I almost died.
But then my friends kept walking. They were following the taxi.
What in the world?
Turns out, the taxi driver only had to go a couple of blocks and meet up with another driver who was going to take the car for his shift.
Thank you Jesus, praise the Lord. We had a taxi.
We got back to the hostel we were staying at at 5:00 in the morning.
And the hostel is a whole ‘nother story in itself.
Let me show you.
This is a picture I took of a stairwell in the hostel earlier in the day. The building was 400 years old and in the middle of being renovated.
Now, as cool as it was to be staying in a building older than my home country, I saw a fiasco looking for a place to happen.
And boy did it ever.
Let me set the scene for y’all…
It’s 5:00 in the morning. I am deader than a doornail tired (so tired in fact, I’m mixing idioms) and I haven’t peed for hours.
My bladder is about to burst.
(Sorry, but it’s the truth. I’m not ashamed to tell you that I was about to pee my pants.)
I have to make it up six flights of stairs before I can get to a bathroom.
In a tight dress. That means no running.
So I waddle/skip/potty-dance up the stairs and have to fiddle around with two separate keys to unlock two separate doors.
Finally, I get the doors open and try to quietly find my way to the bathroom.
Mind you, it’s 5:00 in the morning. People are sleeping. It’s dark. I’m in a strange hostel with furniture placed in places that I don’t know it’s been placed in. I’m bumping into things, knocking things over, the whole shebang.
I really am trying to be quiet, but I gotta go… if you know what I’m saying.
I find the bathroom.
I go in, shut the door and flip the lightswitch.
It doesn’t work.
Yeah. That’s right… the lightswitch doesn’t work.
Sweet Jesus, help me.
I take 0.43 seconds to evaluate my options.
Girl’s gotta pee.
So I feel my way around the bathroom like a blind person until I find the toilet. I make sure the lid is up (gotta cover all my bases, otherwise things could have been bad-news-bears) and I shimmy the zipper down on my dress.
I’ll stop there and save y’all from being scarred for life, but let me just throw one more kink in the wrench (yes, I know that’s another mixed idiom, but it’s what I’ve always said, so it stays) by mentioning the fact that there was no toilet paper.
I’m done now.
I’m done with horrible natural human function stories. (I’m sorry, that was gross too wasn’t it?)
This hostel just kept getting better and better.
After the bathroom disaster, I wanted nothing more than to go to sleep on a rock.
I wanted to go to sleep on a bed.
But the bed might as well have been a rock as hard as it was.
My pillow was covered in stains and hair (not mine).
I had to shove a nightstand in front of the door to keep it closed because it kept swinging open on its own.
There was a vicious cat fight outside my window at 6:00. I’m pretty sure one of the cats died from the sound of things. I was six stories up and I had earplugs in and it still sounded awful.
And that was my hostel experience.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad it happened. I love having crazy adventures like that. Plus, I feel like everybody needs to have one or two bad hostel stories in their lifetime. Now I’ve got mine.
Welcome to the Ritz Carlton.
We have dirtied your pillow and carved your mattress out of cement. Compliments of the house.
Also, we will provide you with gruesome animal noises just as you are about to finally fall asleep in order to provide you with the finest luxury experience.
Thank you for staying with us, we hope to see you again soon.
I may be exaggerating just a little bit, but like I said, it wasn’t that bad all things considered. The view outside my window was even kind of pretty.
But it sure felt good to get back to Málaga the next day.
All in all, I had a great trip to Granada, and I will definitely remember it for the rest of my life.
Now… bring on more adventures!
My life has consisted of the following during the past two weeks:
–attending graduation (not my own. I still have one year left… thank goodness!)
–getting an internship in Spain for this summer!!
–work, work, all week long, punchin’ that clock from dusk till dawn (name that song)
–good laughs with good friends
–traveling to Dallas (I’m not Texas’ biggest fan… just getting that out there now)
–celebrating the wedding of two dear friends
–dancing (aka: making a fool of myself) all night long
I love life. Can I just proclaim that to the whole wide world right now? I am so very blessed beyond my wildest dreams and I love soaking up every minute of this wonderful life.
Ok, mushy moment… check. Moving on.
Going to the wedding this weekend got me thinking about my future wedding. (Which will be way in the future… way, way in the future. I’ve got too much of an independent personality to be settling down anytime soon.)
But still… a girl can dream, can’t she?
I’ve never given much thought to my quote, unquote “dream wedding.”
I have friends who’ve had their colors picked out since the eighth grade, know exactly how many bows and ribbons will line the aisles and have pretty much already bought their wedding dress. And these are friends who aren’t even planning weddings for real.
Whenever I’m asked about what I want my wedding to look like, I always just kind of shrug and reply with a lame, “I don’t really know.” And then I get the incredulous look that says, “Oh my gosh. You are not seriously telling me that you have never thought about your wedding. COME. ON.”
Well, roll your eyes no more, friends. I have a few ideas.
One thing I am sure of… I am getting married in my boots. As much as I like wearing heels, I am a country girl through and through and I love my boots. I’m wearing them no matter what. The end.
Plus… look at how cute this is.
I love the idea of my bridesmaids wearing boots too!
I seriously die every time I look at this picture. This. is. so. me. The end again.
And then there’s the flowers. I love sunflowers. (Kansas is the Sunflower State.) And I think the sunflowers in the picture above are super cute, but I’m thinking more along the line of gazanias.
Yes, no, maybe so? I’ve never been a big flower person. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are absolutely beautiful. But I’ve never been the kind of girl who has a definitive answer whenever someone asks me what my favorite flower is.
The jury’s still out on this one.
But at least I have a few ideas and a whole lot of time before I have to make any real decisions.
