haute halloween

{Rosanna Inc.}

I love this website! They have such beautiful and fun items. I am still in love with this that I have blogged about, and maybe one day I will get it! I am excited about the black ceramic items, I already have the small cake plate and the black teapot. I would love the medium size black cake plate to do a little mix and matching with my martha cake stands. I have the round set and the square set. I love cake stands!

So how cute would these cake stands be with some cupcakes decorated with candy corn or halloween candies? So fun!

I am still mourning not being able to wear my lovelies on my wedding day, so I got them out to play! I am thinking about dying them....but I don't know. They are so pretty...and if you recall, they have baby blue soles. so pretty.

thank you!

I have been moving at a snail's pace to get the thank you notes finished. Finally, the last one has been written and then are stamped and ready to mail. I waited to mail them all together...not sure if that is what you are supposed to do, but that is the way I did it.

I love our note cards. Slice of Lime Design created them. I chose three different colored envelopes for fun! a yellow, chartreuse, and tiffany blue.

Ahhh.....something to cross off the list!


Want some?
So I just posted about writing blog posts and deleting....then I noticed this "draft".

Inspiration...I need some of that. life is great being a newlywed, but to be perfectly honest. It is weird.
Not weird with Chris, just weird in general. No one tells you how you will feel after the wedding. You are on such a high that it seems nothing can get you down. Then after the night is over...something changes.

There should be a support group for newlywed wives. Is it because Chris and I lived together and already made a home together that this funk exists? Would it be different if I did not have oodles of time on my hands? I am not sure, but I am sure this is part of it.

I have tried immersing myself in projects to keep me occupied, but nothing has been completed for various reasons. Frankly I am tired of feeling this way. Maybe I should be thankful for going back to work on fact, I think that is just what I need. Back-breaking activity...Monday and Tuesday are sure to supply this.

Ironic "back breaking" activity is definitely what I got...good news, just started physical therapy!

long weekend

Thank goodness this is a long weekend. I have felt so uninspired as of late and rather "ho-hum" about the every day routine. I have written a few posts then deleted before publishing as a way to get it out without airing all my dirty laundry.

So this long weekend is going to be a turning point. Overwhelmed with the miles of tasks I need to complete, and the ones I simply want to complete piling up, the time has come to take some action. "Inches not miles" has become my mantra and a way to occupy sleepless nights {which is a whole other related/unrelated issue}.

Why is it so difficult to balance the "have to do's" and the "want to do's"?

What do you do when you have truly bitten off more than you can chew? The plate is too full?

I am not a list maker, I typically do not get excited about crossing off a task...usually I make a list and then am still working on it. yeah still working on that ole list...until I eventually throw it away and start another one.

So this weekend, I am making a list...I plan to throw it away on Monday evening and abandon what is left and not feel guilty...Happy holiday weekend to me!
