Thinking Out Loud

by forloveofcarrots on August 21, 2014

It’s been a while since I jumped on this band wagon, but I got a lot on my mind so I figured it was the best way to get it out there!


1.) I AM GETTING MARRIED IN 10 DAY!!! 10 freakin days, where has time gone?

2.) I am soo tired of people asking me if I am ready, don’t you know me I plan things like a zillion years in advance of course I am ready!

3.) I am even more tired of people asking me if I am nervous? My response is usually a blank stare, followed with a confused should I be? I mean maybe I’m a tad nervous about reading my vows in front of 180+ people but that’s the only thing I am nervous about.

4.) I can’t wait to be lying on the beach in Hawaii with a drink in my hand. I feel like all I did this summer was work and go to wedding/do wedding related things. I need our honeymoon in a bad way.

5.) I am soo over having long hair! I legit will pay someone big money to come cut my hair the day after my wedding so I don’t have to deal with it anymore. Don’t even get me started on my roots, they are horrendous. I need Tuesday stat.

6.) I am super obsessed with Bar Method and am contemplating looking to see if they have classes in Hawaii because the thought of being without it for 10 days makes me super sad!

7.) My favorite restaurant Baro is closing on Saturday! I am soo upset about this, and they only emailed people about it yesterday! It doesn’t give me much time to stock up on ALL the rolls! Maria and I are thinking about ordering a bunch and freezing them, I’m not even joking about this!

8.) I can’t wait to see all my family next week, I wish I could have a week off just to spend time with them.

9.) For my swimmer friends, these will make you LOL!

10.) Happy Thursday!


Marvelous Monday

Marvelous is: I am getting married in two weeks!!!!!! Two weeks, where has the time gone!?

Marvelous is: having the whole weekend off! It was soo nice to have two day off, I can’t remember the last time I had the weekend off and it wasn’t for something wedding related or someone else’s wedding!

Marvelous is: all the pool time I got this weekend. It was soo needed and so relaxing!
Marvelous is: Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. I flew through this book, it was soooo disturbing and soo good at the same time. If you are anything like me and like reading disturbing books you should definitely pick this book up.

Marvelous is: Maleficent, I have been dying to see that movie and we watched it last night. I was definitely not expecting it to go the way that it did. It was so good and even though I am not a huge fan of Angelina Jolie, I thought she was excellent in the movie.

Marvelous is: a casual evening bbqing and catching up with friends. I feel like the summer has flown by so I am trying to soak up every second I have left.

How was your weekend?

Did you read Sharp Objects? What did you think?

Did you see Maleficent? What did you think?

Do you feel like summer has flown by?
