So, after nearly six months of being engaged – your girl has finally started to put pen to paper for our special day.
What do I know about wedding planning? Nearly nothing. What do I intend to know about wedding planning once this is over with? About the same.
You see, for me – I just want everyone to have a hell of a lot of fun in the most beautiful place imaginable. So the question is, how can I make that happen as easily as possible? (I say, pouring myself a glass of champagne, muttering “oh shit, here we go” under my breath excitedly..)
It’s the holiday season! How the hell did that happen?
Regardless, we’re covering our house in glitter, garland, and multicolor vintage ornaments – so it’s time to get our plump little behinds into gear and ready for all the parties, awkward family interactions, and hap hazard present wrapping that this time of year brings!
I’m not going to sit here and act like I have all the answers to throwing the Martha Stewart Christmas of dreams, because – duh? But also, after having debatably the best and worst year of my life in equal measures (seriously – more on that later, but all I can say is this.. 2019 DO BETTER), I’ve identified a few of the things that I can let slide to make life a lot more simple and give me the space to be present. That way, I can enjoy the most important part of holiday cheer – our family, friends, and all the coziness!
Internet – I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Moms are really, really easy to please – ESPECIALLY once you’ve left the nest and don’t have as much time for them.
Now, of course – this doesn’t mean show up with a load of laundry and a half hour to spare. But let the less informed keep the overcrowded, pedestrian brunches and I’ll teach you how to make her year for around a hundred bucks and a day of quality time.
As a 26 year old, semi-suburban millennial : few things can and should be rightly assumed. My home decor is mainly all marble and gold, I spend at least 30 minutes a day scrolling through aspirational instagram accounts, and I love the shit out of a good Sunday Target Run ™️.
Add some glitter, Valentine’s Day colored EVERYTHING, endless girl power messages, and prices ranging from $1-$5 and you’ve got the perfect storm for impulse buying en masse. Safe to say – your girl went nuts and has ZERO regrets because, surprise! I’m throwing a big Galentine’s Day party and that’s all the excuse I need.
