a lifestyle, motherhood, & running blog



There was one heck of an awesome weekend with these girls:
& then it was back to reality on Monday. I hit the ground running and haven't stopped except to sleep. Every day has been a solid mix of:
Work at my 8-5 job
Work on the house for a couple of hours
Scarf down dinner
Work on wedding related things for a couple of hours
I knew that things were going to get a little crazy once we got past our bachelor/bachelorette weekends this past weekend but y'all, it's all of the things all of the time! Hence the silence around here this week.
Things are starting to come together though and we're getting things checked off our never ending wedding to do list & house to do list {like getting our invitations in the mail this week!}
I had a major case of #adulting last night when I got a phone call from Lowes that our custom order blinds had come in two weeks early. There was some running around, jumping up and down, and cheering to celebrate the good news. Who knew I would ever get so excited about blinds?! Not pre-home owner Chesson, that's for sure.
Some good family friends of ours are throwing us our final wedding shower tonight {an I Do BBQ couples shower} and I am SO excited for it! I can't wait to celebrate with our friends and family and to be honest, I'm kind of excited to see my fiancé outside of our construction zone of a house and in normal clothes rather than old painting clothes. I'm sure he'll be happy to see me wearing a little bit of make up rather than the paint that I've had splattered all over me for the past month.
So that's life in a nutshell right now.
Crazy. Hectic. Perfect.
It's kind of impossible to complain about having to go to work at a good job, or planning a wedding with my fantastic fiancé, or working on our completely awesome house.
Happy Friday, y'all!
