Confession: crazy working hours have cut into my exercise routine.

And I know I reference The Office too much, but this episode started playing on TBS and it made me realize that maybe I need to drag my fitness orb on the train into work instead of the uncomfortable office chair I currently sit in:

Confession: we didn’t finish the CD on Sunday…but today we have a solid first draft.

So we didn’t finish the tracklist like I wanted Sunday…but we did register!  But that’s another post.

Instead, last night, I pinned the reluctant groom down and we hemmed, hawed, imported, split, and integrated tracks to create what we have as our perfect first go-round:

Confession: I feel like time is slipping, slipping, slipping…into the future.

April is rapidly coming to a close, and while I’ve made strides, I’m likely not doing nearly enough ahead of time.  So…despite it being a gorgeous day here in New Haven, I’m hankering down and as God as my witness, I’m going to finalize our CD-favor playlist and subsequently finish creating our CD cover.

Confession: the stationery store experience was completely overwhelming.

And I didn’t even make the first go-round of selections!

My oh-so-gracious mom took a good hour out of her busy schedule to flip through some wedding books at The Little House Shop in Wayne, PA (and no, no relation to a certain Little House on the Prairie or Big Woods for that matter).  I knew her tastes would skew to the traditional, and she ended up picking up some interesting papers and layouts from the Crane and William Arthur books after an hour of parsing through them.  Armed with her notes, page numbers, and a free afternoon  during the holiday rush, she and I then headed to Papyrus at the King of Prussia Mall.  Ugh, that was a lot of links for a paragraph.

I love the King of Prussia Mall.

Confession: this reluctant bride is a total Jane Austen nerd.

Add to that the Bronte sisters and L.M. Montgomery…any novel (or series) that makes mention of the lovely tradition of shopping for and assembling the trousseau.  With the recently-concluded Jane Austen marathon on PBS, this has been especially in my mind as I figure out what I want to bring on our Italian honeymoon…particularly for the evenings…

Confession: I am a bit of a liar, I guess.

More posts to follow…ugh…I loathe having to work on Sundays…

I do have many, many things to speak of, though!  Love you all…

Confession: this reluctant bride must take a very short break.

A busy few days are in store for me (both personally and professionally–gotta love weekend work…or not), which means my internet presence will be diminished.  At least today and tomorrow.

But here are some posts to look forward to in the near future:

  • Trousseau shopping in New York
  • Preliminary hair/makeup ideas
  • Tales of bridesmaid dress shopping
  • Dream registry–the crazy things I’d love to get, but feel weird about asking for them
  • Updates on DIY projects
  • My list of “Most Inappropriate Songs to Play at a Wedding”
  • …and much more!

Look for new posts come Sunday evening.
