Wedding Wednesday!

Oh geeeeee, I love talking about my wedding. I try really hard not to talk about it with people I know because I don't want to be that person. And I know I'm only getting started and the then stuff will just fall out of my mouth without even thinking about it.

Sometimes I'm so excited to plan a wedding and watch my beautiful marriage bloom, and others I'm just so worried about the actual planning part.

As much as I love Blake, he really doesn't help. I've gotten him to be serious about this about once. And we completely disagreed on what we should do.

It was all over the venue. He thought I was insane for wanting the venue I love but I feel it's very reasonable. Once I got him to go look at it and talk to the management he felt it was a good place too. However, he isn't 100 percent sold on it.

There are only two things I don't want to settle on. Our venue and our pictures. They are very high on my list of important things.

I'm sure we'll get it worked out though.

In happy exciting wedding stuff, I asked my sister to be one of the bridesmaids! Of course she said yes.

I've also gotten my dress and veil! I feel like some of the hardest stuff is over. I hear people say that shopping for their dress was the so stressful! I'm glad to not have to worry about it. I'm sad that I didn't get the experience with some of the people I wanted but my momma and Teagan were there. I love my dress. I want to wear it all the time. I haven't seen another dress that I like better than it!

I'm getting started on a guest list. I didn't realize we liked or knew so many people. I'm sure it will have to be cut because we don't want a huge wedding. I want a very intimate feeling. How did you decide who would be invited and who wouldn't? Any major rules I need to know about?

Only 367 days to go!

Less Irritation

** I got this razor free to test and review, but all opinions are my own.**

Let me let you in on a little secret, I hate to shave. I know, you're thinking that's not a secret, all women hate to shave. But no, I hate it more than most others. I can promise you that.

Want proof? Well, I'm not going to show you because I don't want to scare you away. But you can ask the lovely fiance, or any family member honestly.

I remember being a young (cough I'm still young cough) girl and just wanting to shave my legs so bad. I begged and begged my mom. She finally said yes. So I grabbed the big girl items, a razor and some shaving cream, sat down on the side of our bath tub, put my legs up and lathered the cream on, then went to town. I thought to myself "Shaving isn't that bad! Why do ladies always grump about this? I love it!!! I'm an adult yay!!!" And then I proceeded to shave in some wiggly form of a line, missing spots and not even caring.

 Until I looked up and saw there was blood on my leg. BLOOD!!! Ahhhh. I'm squeamish when it comes to blood so a little freaking out ensued. I searched high and low for where I cut myself. And then I found it. I had managed to cut my thumb. The top of my thumb at that. How in the hell did that happen? I'll never know. I sure as hell wasn't shaving my fingers! Ever since that day, shaving has been a form of cruel and unusual punishment.

I can't tell you how long it's even been since my legs were shaved last. What's even worse is how Blake feels about it. That poor poor man. He loves a freshly shaved leg. He thinks the silkiness is so nice. And I, the woman he decided he wants to marry - to be with forever - hasn't shaved since the beginning of the year at least. He begs and sometimes I oblige. Or I'll tell him sure babe, I'll shave, and never get around to it. But he never says a word, just goes on living a life of hairy legs rubbing up against him.

Side note, my legs don't look that bad. For some reason my hair doesn't get dark. It's just a bunch of long blonde soft hairs. When I do shave, I have a razor that I love. I like the Bic Soleils. I don't have a reason why, other than I just do. I've used a couple Venus razors here and there, but I haven't found one I love.

I have really sensitive skin and I ALWAYS get razor burn on my legs. It may not be razor burn exactly but there are always little red bumbs. So when Influnester contacted me about the new Venus Embrace Sensitive I was a little hesitant. But hey, if I can find something to make my man happy and that makes me want to shave more often, then why the hell wouldn't I take that opportunity?

I like it. I really do. My legs aren't all red and bumpy like they normally are after I shave.There are strips of aloe above and below the blades to ease irritation. It's a really nice razor. I feel I get a closer shave with my Soleil does but not having razor burn is a big freaking deal! And it feels nice to have shaved legs. I don't know if having this razor will make me shave more, but at least I know if I do shave my razor burn won't be so bad.

Do you get razor burn? What do you do to stop razor burn from happening?


Do I get the award for most sporadic blog posting? I feel like I should.

I just seem to be actually living my life lately. I think about being here, but the moments have been more important than the internet. I'm really trying to find myself in terms of this blog. I don't know where I want it to go. I've been interested in a different kind of blog than I'd normally find myself reading.

I guess as I grow and develop I want this blog to grow and develop too. I feel like I need to find out who I am and what I should write about. I'll always be a lifestyle blog, but now it feels like the lifestyle I'm used to writing about is changing into a different kind. I don't feel that any of this is bad, I just don't know what to write.

Changes are always scary for me. I like everything to be the same as it was the day, week, month before it was. And sometimes it gets boring and monotonous, but then it isn't. When I do make a change with something I worry about if it's the right choice.

The topics that once seemed important to me, now aren't that much of a care. But the topics I feel are important just seem to personal to share. I never know how much is too much when it comes to telling the interwebs.

Life, it's a crazy thing.

Have you ever felt that your moments were moments that shouldn't be shared?

Fall TV

Well, I showed up for class twice this week. SURPRISE!! I've had a couple of thing I wanted to talk about but it's Friday and they aren't for Fridays. So, you get my favorite fall tv shows. This could be long because I love me some tv.

I'm linking up with Melissa for her October Blogging Challenge.

Making Melissa

The New Kids


I wasn't sure how this show was going to be. I like Batman and all but I didn't really think it was about Batman. Just about Gotham. Well, it's awesome as hell. I watched the first episode last night and I really enjoyed it. Plus there's some eye candy in it as well. You might remember him from the O.C. Seriously though, it's hard not to think of him as Ryan. Somethings you never grow out of. A little fun fact for you, one of my most favorite things about any Batman movie, is Alfred. I love Alfred. I don't know why, I just do. And he's in Gotham too. =) 

Bad Judge

Ok, so the first episode wasn't on until last night, but I still loved it. We all wish that as adults we could act like hot messes and still get our job done. We can't. But Judge Rebecca still manages to get it to work for her. Critics are saying this show sucks and it won't be on much longer. We'll see. Until then, I'll enjoy living vicariously through her.

The Tried and True

Sons of Anarchy

We're in the last season of this motorcycle club drama. And Jax is gonna find out who killed his wife. Even if he has to kill the whole town of Charming. Sorry for the spoiler. I forget that not everybody is watching live. The first three episodes of the season we're slow, but this weeks lit the whole season on fire. Mr. Sutter, the show's writer, finally brought back some of the humor too. I'll probably go jump off a bridge when the show is over. I won't know what to do without my trusty MC every week. Then there's Gemma. I'm not gonna lie, I was always Team Gemma. I couldn't stand Tara. But now the woman has lost her ever loving mind and is really hard to like. 


Again, another show in it's last season. Which makes me sad. I love shows about families. And this one makes me cry every week. What's not to love? The family problems seem like actual problems people would have. If you need a good cry, and then something to make you feel better, this is the show for you.

That's all I got today. What are your favorite fall shows? Anything you think I should be watching?
