9 days until the wedding

No real stress yet. Surely I must have forgotten something then, right?

I got them all with :35 left on the clock.

Lacey: It's strange to think that we weren't living tragedies over facebook for things like Columbine and 9/11
Erin: I know, how did we grieve/process if we couldn't share our grieving over social media?
Erin: or post tributes every year and say where we were?!
Erin: "where we were" is crazy to type BTW
Where we were, what we were wearing, were there werewolves?

I got lots of amazing suggestions for polishes. 3 people recommended Bikini So Teeny which I already own and love (pictured above is actually from my tumblr when I posted it in different lights) - it is possibly my favorite polish. However, I don’t think I’ll go with because I’d probably have to buy a new bottle just so it wouldn’t be the weird consistency is it now from being old and overused.

Since one of my weddings colors is a mint green, I’m starting to lean towards that Butter London Fiver or Essence You Belong To Me. Zoya Blu is also gorgeous.

I love all the colors people suggested. I had one person tell me that I shouldn’t go with blue because I’d regret it. I fully expect to regret everything from my wedding in like 10-20 years because that is how weddings work.

Kevin and I started trying to name all the things we will notice in our wedding photos in years to come that will make us cringe. Our list so far includes: my ombre-ish hair, his glasses, his mustache, the skinny ties the guys will wear, my dress, the colors, my makeup, my hair. It is bound to happen. Find a wedding from the 80s that you don’t point out the shoulder pads, teased hair, mullets, huge veils that also look teased, etc.

Anyway, I wanted to thank everything that gave me suggestions - you may have made my decision harder but at least now I can start testing out these colors.

Nail decisions

The most important decision of my life is one month away - what nail color to wear on my wedding day. At first, I thought I was going to go with OPI’s Sweet Heart which I proclaimed on instagram:

However, after I got my bridals back, I realized this was a weak choice for photographs or maybe my hands just look weird (why can’t it be both?):

They don’t look as bad in this photo, but they could just be a bit stronger:

So then I got the idea that maybe I would go with a light blue (not too light though) and it could be my “something blue”. I checked the internet for some options and fell in love with NARS Kutki:

However, I can’t find this for sale anywhere - well except on ebay but I would have to purchase a lot for $90 and I’ve kind of slowed my roll in the polish game so don’t want to drop that many bones on polish.

This is where I plead with you, the internet, for a suggestion of a nail color (dupe of this or totally different color that you know will look great) for that big day when everyone comes to one place to look at my nails and eat cake and dance in honor of my nails. 

Also, before anyone suggests Essie’s Borrowed and Blue, I think that might be a few shades too light and I’d have the same OPI Sweet Heart problem. Borrowed and Blue for reference:

What say ye?

If photo-shopping Olive was a job, I’d be rolling in it…

Tracked my sleep using a free app last night. I definitely woke up at 3am to use the bathroom and didn’t feel like I fully went back to sleep after that and this supports that feeling. However it still thinks my sleep was efficient so I’ll sleep easy tonight knowing that. Puns always intended.

"No problem. We only have one daughter whom we love."
Email response back from my mom when I told her that the wedding count will likely be above what they were anticipating. It makes me wonder if they actually have another daughter but just don’t love her.

Kevin is lucky that I update our shared calendar with important events.
(If you missed the joke, they are just getting together and playing Magic the Gathering for his bachelor party.)

I need more happy hours that involve playing with puppies and drinking.
