Last Sunday whirled Elizabeth and I to the bridal show at the Convention Center in N Portland.  I had incredible company, the free cake was delicious, but the vendors?  Predatory like a T Rex.  And the vendor that scared me the most?  The ladies who asked me if I had considered a little color before my big day.

Hard to take the question seriously from somebody resembling an Oompa Loompa.

I declined politely.

And oh, the week that followed. 20 hours at the Lab.  19 hours at my internship and getting assigned my first two families.  6 hours of classes.  Reading.  Writing.  Research.

Trying to find time to set up a meeting with potential wedding photographers.

Getting my business in order so I can fully spend time with the moms next weekend to look for a wedding dress.  Their first meeting, and I could not be more excited for them to get to know each other this far in advance of the wedding.  It's one of my biggest hopes that the two (or in our blended case, four) families truly feel like family the day of.

I don't know where I'm finding time to pin things to Pinterest, but would you like to take a miniature sneak peek at what I'm thinking for our big day?  (Or is that, a very expensive little party?) ...



Vintage Wedding Inspirations

All these delicious little ideas and details that get to be tucked away with joy.  Good thing I don't have to worry about how to translate theory into practice until next summer ... I'd have absolutely no idea what to do with myself!  For now, Shoes chuckles gently and says, "All right, love.  If you want to think about it now, that's fine.  Just don't stress yourself out."

This wedding?  The least of my worries.  I have the partner.  We have a venue and the food.  Everything else is just gravy.

I'll save my real worry for my paper on non directive play therapy that's due soon ....

    I too somehow find time to pin things to Pinterest. Funny how that works! What you shared looks lovely so far. Good luck with the balancing act of school, research, life, and wedding planning. Feel free to vent to me any time. :)

    I think I was most impressed with how rehearsed you were with the question do you travel...and then follow up with explanation. Good job!! Oh how I wish we could have at least taken pictures of Randy with our cell phones...but at least we can say we were in the same building as him!! Haha.

    The Oompa Loompas just made my whole night! :) And I'm loving those ideas for your wedding!

    Also, you are wonder woman. For reals.

    @BreAnna ...and I definitely will! ;) What is it about Pinterest that I can't stay away from ....??

    @Elizabeth ... I have a feeling, from the program, so really it's a fact and not a feeling, that we missed Randy by a mere 20 minutes. Stinking school. I have a meeting with my step-sister's sister in law to talk about photographing the wedding. What! Yep, our family's that complicated. Yay for a maybe photographer!

    @Katelyn ... uh ... why aren't YOU on Pinterest?? Or, maybe you are and I just didn't look for you. Another excuse to get on? Be right back ... (Wonder Woman wore a bustier. I don't have the body type for that. I'm more like ... the flying nun. Kidding!)
