Make-your-monday-legendaryGood Morning!
Happy June! It’s here already!

How are you doing today? How was your weekend? Did it go by too fast for you too? Friday was wedding stuff most of the day. I got up early to get my hair trimmed, picked up my dress and then ran some errands with my mom – Target + JC Penny for lipstick. We assembled a few things and chatted over the wedding timeline. Then we did a trial run of my make-up. And I put on my dress. And jewelry. And shoes.

hello monday weekendAnd I looked like a bride!
Guys. 5. DAYS. UNTIL. I. GET. MARRIED. what?!!

Saturday, I spent a majority of the day studying. In the past 3 weeks or so, I’ve gotten 2 chapters behind in Precision. And with everything going on, I haven’t really ‘studied’. It’s hard sometimes with a self-paced certification, especially when there is no big exam at the end. So, I made some flashcards, made a plan to make some diagrams and got all my past due quizzes and questions answered. I also cleaned house.

PLUS, I made my mock-ups for the chalkboard signs for the reception. I haven’t done any artsy stuff in so long, and it was such a good stress receptionSomething you probably don’t know about me: I used to be such an art geek? I did ceramics all through high school and won awards. I used to want to be an art therapist. I even sold handmade paper bead jewelry (took me a hot minute to find that site!). I’ve missed being creative!

Last Monday as a single lady! And it’s full of wedding things! Which I am sure will be like the rest of the week. I found subs for my classes too, so I can try and relax!

on when people say ‘Don’t Get Too Muscular’: an open letter  (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. –> So next time you are tempted to “help” a woman by telling her not to deadlift things because you don’t like muscular women, remember that nobody cares about your stupid boner. Especially not the lady deadlifting 200lbs in the gym tank that says “GET SWOLE”.)
