Rants and Raves

Rave: As I mentioned in my last post, I got to spend some time this weekend with my parents. Tonight, I sent them the link to this blog. I hope they read it and I hope they like it! Cross your fingers!

Rant: I want to buy all of the pottery barn holiday decorations.


However, my money needs to be saved for a certain event next September and perhaps buying a house. Annnd my lease is up in May and there is no way that I want to have to move one more trinket into another apartment or house.

Rave: This weekend we decided to go forward with the black, white, and plum color scheme. Yay! Our first decision! I have officially named it: "A Black & White Soiree"

Rant: I have a giant SpongeBob box sitting in my living room and I lack the effort to move it into the storage closet outside. Perhaps I'm becoming a little attached to the yellow guy!

Rave: I love spreadsheets. I love creating them, using them, formatting them...I would almost say I love Bill Gates for creating Microsoft Office. Perhaps my love for spreadsheets explains why I'm an accountant. Anyways, I am quite proud of myself for thus far having fully-functioning spreadsheets in the works for our guest list, church, hotel for guests, and wedding websites. Works of art I tell you.

Rant: It's only supposed to get up to a high of 40 degrees tomorrow...what happened to fall!?

Rave: I love the curly branches that are coming out of this centerpiece. And, if you can see them, the white (iridescent) stars hanging off the branches are such a cute detail!

Yeah, I'm totally lovin' the look. And, I was at Pottery Barn today, completing our registry and I had to hold myself back from going crazy with the holiday decorations. They are all so cute!!!
