I don't know how many more of these posts I can handle! Yes, I'm still alive. No, I don't think anyone is reading.
I've been slaving away on my third semester of grad school, which ended one week ago. I got one grade back so far (A!) and am waiting for my other one. As of this semester, I am officially almost half way through the program. Almost. That gives me some hope for sure, even though the finals period never seems to get any easier, no matter how much older I get.
Now that the semester is over, I can relax! Choose how I want to spend my evenings rather than have them dictated by my class and gym schedule. Free time is a lovely and precious gift, that's for sure. And with my free time, its time to get back in the sewing game. I have lots of things I want to make. To inspire myself, I'm wearing a skirt I made two summers ago, and I have to say, I still really like it. The pattern is crazy easy and it looks so professional, if I do say so myself. No pics, sorry.
I'm also deep into the wedding planning, which often sucks the life out of Mike and I. We just this weekend decided on the wording for our invitations. I think its very sweet. Not too stuffy or formal and very representative of the feel I want the wedding to have: Big Party!! And, yesterday I bought a pair of shoes from Nordstrom's online store that may be the shoes for the big day, depending on how comfortable they are.
This photo makes them look a little silvery but they are supposed to be gold. We'll see what they look like when they show up!
I also had my hair trial. Ok, can I just say, as an aside, that this whole wedding industry sucks? Its all about perfection and spending money to get there. That bugs me. But when you're spending a fortune on a photographer, I guess it makes sense to spend a fortune on primping for those pricey photos! Anyhow, I lovelovelove the gal who is doing my hair and she did a fantastic job with my knotty, curly mess.
Of course, I'm talking in this photo because my sister was there and there's never a silent moment when the two of us are in the same room. And the hair is the general idea. Swept up and back off of my face, and cascading (cascading?!) down in the back in soft curls, and a slight taper at the bottom. I felt so soft and romantic and pretty. Aw.
Ok. Enough. Maybe I'll post again before the next four months fly by!
