This week I…
+ Had the most insane week ever. Work was busy (very good!), but through a twist of events that essentially started back in January (remember this post?), it would appear that we are moving. In, like, three weeks (hmm). For realsies this time though. We sign a lease on a new apartment today. (Aside: just wait until I tell you what has been going on with our apartment the last six months. I’ve kept pretty quiet about it, because reading about our rental dramas doesn’t make for great blog content, but now that it seems like the saga is coming to a close, what a story it is.) So, blogging + client work + wedding planning + organizing a move + upcoming travel = slightly crazed Victoria. Not complaining, because on the whole life is pretty fantastic right now — there’s just a lot on my plate, hence why today’s post is a little late and why I’ve been virtually silent in the blogosphere!
+ saw two of my design projects go live! Before France, I worked with Jessica on a header, social media icons, Twitter page, and Facebook cover photo for her blog The State Street Edit; I also completed a project with Allie, who requested a new header, page menu nav bar, and social media nav bar for her blog Beauty and the Feast. Fun times.
+ Contemplated getting these shoes for the wedding. Kind of obsessed (and how hot would they look later on, with a pair of black skinnies?). My super amazing bridal consultant at Amy Kuschel slash now friend and unofficial stylist Melanie tells me that they won’t be comfortable for a full night on my feet though. Drat. Married ladies — what route did you go for wedding shoes?
+ Had a blowout dinner at A16 last night with Joe. We’re talking wine, pasta, AND pizza, AND dessert. Salad for dinner today? Yes, I think so.
Here in the states, next week it’s Independence Day, which means we have this random day off in the middle of the week (but I’ll take it!). Anyone doing anything fun for the Fourth? We made no plans this year (which given our schedule and this move is probably a very good thing), so we’re planning on going out to lunch and then laying low for the rest of the day. Maybe midweek holidays are actually the way to go!
LINK OF THE WEEK: These DIY fringy festive string lights look so easy and are PERFECT for any outdoor barbecues you might be hosting next week. Come to think of it, they’d also be perfect for Bastille Day, and I bet you could even use them later in the summer for Labor Day too! That Erin is so creative!
Happy weekend, everyone!
