wedding planning, living room pics etc...

I really need to get better at blogging. I have officially starting the wedding planning. We of course already have the venue, but I have finally started looking at all the details that a wedding requires, including a budget. Weddings are ridiculously expensive!! the colors are going to be black and white with touches of Tiffany blue and fuchsia. (Meg I was looking at your weddings pics on facebook the other day for ideas and realized that my bridesmaid dresses are going to be similar to yours but the colors are swapped!)I have all these wonderful ideas but do not have a checkbook big enough to carry them out, such is life :) I'm thinking of going with a vintage/old hollywood/breakfast at Tiffany's theme. Another question that has been bouncing around my head is, "why are photographers so expensive?, apparently that is where the money is, I need to go back to school and become a photographer!

This past weekend was the first weekend since I moved up here that Scott and I didn't really do much. I think the farthest we drove all weekend was 15 miles. We finally went to the beach this weekend, and Scott even went in the water! The weather has been rather strange for Southern California, we've had rain a few times, including today and June gloom seems to be more gloomy than past years as well.



I think scott might be wondering what he got himself into when he said "I do"...

Since I am currently job free (doesn't that sound so much better than jobless, or unemployed?) I have been doing a LOT of reading. I think the best book I have read since moving up here is Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout. I have the pleasure of meeting her the day after she won the Pulitzer prize for the book. It can be best described as a book of short stories but they all intertwine so the book is wonderfully amazing. If anyone has any recommendations, please send them my way!

I am finally starting to post some pics of our place, below is the living room. I absolutely LOVE the couch, it is so comfy! Stay tuned, next up will be the dining room and kitchen!

Weddings are SO expensive, but you can do it on a tight budget. One thing that saved us tons of money is doing our own flowers! I got bunches of roses from Sam's club and tulips from the grocery store! It was perfect!! Cute apartment and I also love the theme for the wedding! :)
