This week I…

+ Had a week filled with printing. Check it. I:
+ Ordered new business cards from Moo. Why didn’t anyone tell me they had this luxe line of paper sooner?? Obsessed.
+ Had our Save the Dates printed (well, got the ball rolling at least. There was a minor snafu with how they cropped it, but those babies will be ready to go out next week, I hope!)
+ Printed a fun little bachelorette invitation for a client. It’s lookin’ fly. I kinda wanna go to this party, honestly.
+ Had two lunches with two good friends (hi Rach and Mere!). It’s always so nice to catch up with people and get out of my head for a while. I find that while I don’t mind being by myself at home all day, it’s definitely made me more of a head case at times.
+ Got our engagement photos back! I told Joe the professionally done hair and makeup worked wonders, because I thought they were the best photographs I’d ever taken (and I HATE being in photographs). He goes, “Naw, I like the way you look everyday more.” I thought he was busting my balls, but he was serious. It sounds dumb, but it was really sweet. It’s funny looking at these photos and picking out the ones that are most us. Ironically, they’re the ones we’re least likely to put on our wedding website. Mostly because they’re all the ones where we’re eating. Stuffing our faces and laughing = most true to real life.

LINK OF THE WEEK: This post from Sarah. Because as much as I remind myself of everything she wrote in that second paragraph, it never seems to sink in. However, her words stayed with me all yesterday and I found myself taking a step outside of my crazed mind and thinking about what she said and having my rational, objective self telling my insane self that I’m doing just fine. It was nice. More on this on Monday!

Happy weekend, everyone!

    Can’t wait to see the photos! Who did your hair and makeup? I’m trying to figure out what to do for the wedding, but I have such a hard time trusting people – I always worry I’ll hate it!
