Anyone else needing a little extra coffee to get through this Monday? I blame The Talking Dead – I ALWAYS have to watch it right after The Walking Dead (especially when Jerry is a guest) and it keeps me up way to late on a work night, making Mondays extra rough. This Monday, in particular, is our last day at the shop before the NASCAR XFINITY Series season begins. We fly down to Daytona on Wednesday and I can’t wait! The best part about working in NASCAR is going to the racetrack, especially one at the beach!
I am packing this cozy pullover from Southern Marsh to wear on the flight. It comes in eight colors and it was so hard to choose between all of them. I am wearing the midnight gray and washed red. FYI – Southern Marsh has unisex sizing, which is great for me because I love a slouchy oversized look. But just keep that in mind when ordering. This is my third sweatshirt I have ordered from them and have been a small in every one (for reference, I am 5’4).
TGIF! I am about to kick off a relaxing weekend, but I wanted to pop in and share one of my favorite looks with y’all! I have had a crazy week and am looking forward to a couple chill days before the NASCAR season begins next week. First of all, we literally just got an email from Royal Caribbean stating that Kusadasi has been removed from our cruise itinerary because of Turkey’s “unpredictability”. How crazy! It’s so hard to believe that such a beautiful place is experiencing such awful things right now.
Also, I went to my first dress fitting a couple days ago and lordy, there were SO many options of how to alter it. I wasn’t expecting to make so many decisions. I have been on the Ideal Protein diet for a couple months and am down a size (yay – I’m going to chat about my experience with it soon here), but the seamstress told me I need to maintain until the wedding now. If I gain or lose weight, the dress won’t fit and there won’t be time to alter it! No pressure or anything. This may be just me, but when I had the dress, heels, veil, etc. it honestly made me feel like I was going to faint. I am such a bundle of nerves about standing in front of everyone. I know it’s silly, especially because I blog, but I hate being the center of attention. Anyone else have this problem?
Is anyone else as excited for spring as I am? I cannot wait for fun colors and warm weather! And with under three months to go until our honeymoon, I have already started purchasing various things for the trip. We have plenty more to plan for the wedding and bachelorette party, so I wanted to have the whole honeymoon squared away weeks before our big day, especially since our flight to Rome departs at 6pm the next day. I am not a fabulous planner, but hopefully I can have it all packed and set aside ahead of time.
For anyone who’s curious, we are going on a Mediterranean cruise. Our ports are Sicily, Mykonos, Kusadasi, Santorini, Athens, and Naples. Just FYI – Not trying to brag, this trip is literally once in a lifetime. Unfortunately, thanks to the NASCAR schedule, our cruise fits in to the time we have available perfectly, but leaves no time left over to explore Rome. So even though we are boarding the boat there, we won’t get to see any of the city. And as dorky as this sounds, I threw a coin in the Trevi Fountain when I was much younger in hopes I would return with my love. I guess that will have to happen in the future!
