Well hello there lovely people! Hasn’t it been a while since I wrote one of these posts and caught you all up on the goings on in my life? I feel like I haven’t been around these parts too much lately, which makes me sad and stresses me out a little if I’m honest, but life has once again taken over and my blogging duties have fallen by the wayside. I feel as if I’m getting back on track this week though, which is lovely, so let’s get started on this catch up shall we?
The past two weeks I have spent approximately 85 hours at work, and approximately 15 hours getting to and from work. Not too exciting at all really, and while I’m not sure it was completely necessary to have done the maths on that, it kind of made me realise where all my time has been going! I am hanging out majorly for our honeymoon in October, and am not-so-secretly counting down the days I have left at work. On another note, I am cutting back to working part time in September so I can focus some time and energy on my business and wedding planning (because there’s no time like the last minute to try and get EVERYTHING done!), so really can’t wait for that either!
Speaking of wedding planning, these last two weeks have seen Ty and I become total wedding planning pros. It’s crazy to think how much we’ve managed to get done in the past two weeks, which really goes to show that there’s nothing like a little pressure to get me moving on the jobs I tend to put off. Most excitingly, we have organised Ty’s suit and his groomsmen’s suits and they are absolutely perfect! I don’t see Ty in suits that often, but when I do, I’m reminded just how amazing a suit looks on him (it almost makes me want to cry…is that weird???), and this particular suit is really something special. I have lots of other wedding-related things to share, but I’ll probably put all that into one post, maybe a wedding to-do list update type of post!, next week.
As I mentioned in this Five Favourites post in July, Ty and I bought a house a few weeks ago! It’s been such an exciting experience for us and, at times, quite a daunting one as there have been so many new things for us to learn. Mortgages! Solicitors! Paper work! Honestly, I feel so relieved that most of that is behind us now. We spent the majority of the weekend before last getting the house ready for the renters we hope to fill it with. My absolute favourite details of the new house are its wooden floors, detailed cornices, high ceilings and the new kitchen, and I can’t help but feel slightly jealous of whoever gets to moves into it!
To completely change topics here, I went to our local Weekend Markets this past Saturday and it reminded me how I should make going to the markets more of a permanent weekend activity! I love browsing the fresh produce stalls, and the stands selling all sorts of old and new books, and I managed to buy the first three books that caught my eye on Saturday. I’ve heard The Time Traveler’s Wife is a great read and it’s been on my radar for quite a while so I’m really looking forward to starting that soon. Have you read any great books lately?
In other news, the beautiful Sarah (who incidentally is one of my all-time favourite bloggers and feels like a real friend to me even though we’ve never actually met!) and I did a super fun Q&A over the weekend and it’s live on her beautiful blog now, so do pop on over to Daydreams of Summertime to see my answers to her questions, if you like!
Ok, well, it’s quite late here and way past my bed time so I better leave it there! I hope you’ve all been well? How has your week been? Catch me up on all that has been happening with you in the comments! XO
