Playing dress-up.

Lately I've been crazy, crazy, crazy busy.

With only four more weeks of school, I'm waking up every morning and giving myself a pep talk on how to get through the day in order to effectively balance my wedding planning with my school work with my research and my fun times too! (Phew.) But, for the most part, I've been having a blast with it all.

The wedding dress hunt has been really interesting. I guess I'm not the person who tries on "the one" and just knows it's right, because I always think about how much I'm spending, and if I'm matching my theme well enough, etc. However, it's still really nice to feel pretty and elegant.

Plus, it never hurts to take time out and dress up. I was Katniss for The Hunger Games midnight premiere last night. (I'm still paying for that decision today.)

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Tomorrow night, it's on!

I'd say that photo up there about sums it up.

Harbor and I have tickets to one of the midnight screenings of The Hunger Games in Tallahassee tomorrow night. Like many of you, it's hard to believe that the wait is nearly over and the movie is only one more sleep away. Though I had contemplated dressing up like Katniss, I don't have anything ready to go for tomorrow, so we'll see if I end up getting snazzy and dressing up for the premiere. We'll see. 

Goodnight to all the HG fans out there. Good luck finding good seats at the screening. And may the odds be ever in your favor.

This time, last year.

Happy first day of Spring!

There's something so refreshing about the idea of rebirth for me right now. I've felt rather weighed down with details lately, so tonight I'm practicing stillness and being thankful for things in my life. So, I decided that tonight would be the best night to debut my latest blog feature.

It's called, "This time, last year." The goal is simple, really. I love the iPhoto feature of hopping back exactly a year ago to see what you were doing during that time. Sometimes after I upload my latest photos, I'll take a quick walk down memory lane and see what I was up to this time last year. After I uploaded my photos this afternoon, I looked back a year ago and was amazed at how much time had already passed.

So, without further ado...

This time last year I was printing photos from my dear friend's wedding, heading home from SXSW, and, enjoying some time with family.

Oh yeah, and I still had red hair! I almost forgot. 

I was also eating a lot of frozen yogurt with friends all over the United States.

Cocoa, FL

March was a super busy month for me last year. I guess it's not any slower this year with school and wedding planning, but it's certainly less glamorous and travel-savvy. 

What about you? Take a look back and let me know what you were doing this time last year.
