Just a little blog about me and mine.

Blogging from the wilderness August 10, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Katie @ 4:06 pm

I’ve been remarkably silent on the blog lately, but not because I haven’t been doing interesting things. Maybe because I’ve been doing so many interesting things I haven’t had time to blog. Anyway, here’s a quick update on some gigantic happenings:

1. New job
2. planning a wedding
3…Um, yeah. That’s it, but man is that time consuming.

Actually that’s not it at all, we ran the Peachtree Road Race, went to our friend’s lovely mountain cabin, I went to Dallas for work (it was hot and everything is big and Dallas BBQ is too sweet), we saw the awesome band Girlyman with a good friend, and we getting ready for our end of the summer weekend mountain trip that we planned so long ago. Our garden is also going strong–giving us some beautiful sunflowers to admire, delicious squash, tomatoes and cucumbers to eat and is beginning to churn out some marvelously strange ornamental squash. Yeah, I really should have taken a picture–now it just looks like it wants to take over the house. We also had 2 bouts with a broken AC, solved both times by my very handy and kind dad who came to our rescue.

I really regret not blogging some of the wedding stuff because it turns out we’re fairly good at planning a swanky and ever more expensive and ever-growing non-legal wedding. We’re also incredibly laid back about the whole thing, so it’s seemed stress-free and easy and there isn’t much to comment on (except for the fact that PL will need someone to go dress shopping with her, I can’t even pick out shampoo with her because it takes too long). Maybe I can pretend like we didn’t pre-screen caterers and florists online and then just met with one company and hired them and then blog about that. The same with bridesmaid dresses (they rock by the way). Also, I need to go cake tasting even though we have a cake already.

In other news, I really might start blogging again soon now that things start to feel a bit more settled and I’m used to my new schedule. One main reason to resume blogging is that something I like to write about is budgeting and personal finance and with my new job comes two things: more money and just one paycheck a month. Getting paid once a month really means I’ll need to watch our expenses more closely since once the money is gone, more isn’t going to come in until the next month (clearly I learned this the hard way this first month-when will the 25th be here?). It’s been really tough to keep up with everything since it seems like there’s lots of money in the account but in reality all of that money has to last the whole month and pay for the mortgage and groceries…and eye cream for the dog (stupid spaniel’s and their pink eye) and other expenses you don’t always plan for…

    Yay! More blogging! And it reminds me I need to show my mom how pretty the bridesmaids dresses are.

    I’ll totes go dress shopping with PL if she wants some company.

    And you still have lots to blog about wedding-wise: invites, picking a shower date, finding shoes, hair & make-up, making sure one of your bridesmaids doesn’t still have purple hair on the big day…

    I was pretty laid back about the whole wedding planning thing, too. Had to be, I was trying to do senior design at the same time! LOL Glad everything is going well. Those dresses are amazing!!
