Last Weeks Retail Therapy

I have to laugh at myself because I am so excited about my new Kate Spade purse and wallet. I would refresh the USP tracking page hourly (sometimes even every half hour) to see if my package has been delivered to our front door! I felt so much excitement when I drove up my driveway and saw it there just for me. I don’t think I have ever ripped open a box so quickly when I walked in the house.

A little back story: When I got engaged Kate Spade just came out with the option to monogram their purses and wallets and being newly engaged you want to monogram EVERYTHING with your future initials! I was so close to ordering a monogrammed purse multiple times but I always talked myself out of it so I could be more excited when I was actually married. I waited over a year for my personalized purse and for me to wait that long really says something because I never wait. If I want something bad enough I will find a way to get it one way or another.

So needless to say this was a very exciting purchase for me. I was finally able to get my monogrammed purse and new wallet. It almost felt like a wedding present! And what makes it better is my purse is red and gold, and my wallet is a light grey which were our wedding colors! It couldn’t have been more perfect.

I mentioned in my gratitude post that Kate Spade was having the best sales last week so I had to do a little retail therapy to get me through the week and with my new purse finally being in my hands I wanted to share my excitement!

Gratitude: Week 2

I’m a little late on my weekly gratitude but I figured I would do one really quick. Last week was hectic and crazy so this is probably going to be more of a funny post than inspirational. Especially because I felt like I was losing my mind last week.

1. RedBull

To get me through the days I was ready to fall asleep at my desk. I got a 4 pack on Tuesday and finished it by Friday. I’m going to try not to drink it this week because I don’t want to rely on it!

2. Advil

I sit at a desk all day and I’m happy I don’t have too much of a physical job but last week I had a lot of running around to do around the office. I’m an assistant so my day’s can get pretty hectic. I had a combination of back pain and migraines but thanks to Advil I was able to keep the pain under control.

3. Kate Spade

When I get stressed I usually do one of two things: stress eat or retail therapy. Thankfully last week Kate Spade had a flash sale AND 25% off her already sale items. So needless to say I gave in to some retail therapy and got a new wallet in this beautiful stone grey color that is basically the same color of my bridesmaid dresses and a new purse that is red and I was able to get the tag monogrammed with my new last name! Red and grey were our wedding colors so it was hard to pass up! Plus my best friend has the same wallet so I just had to match haha.

4. Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes

I’ll admit I am way to lazy when it comes to taking my makeup off at the end of the day. My husband and I will usually make dinner, do the dishes, catch up on an episode of something and then head off to bed. I’m very happy for the facial wipes because I don’t have to think too much about removing my makeup from the day and as soon as my head hits the pillow, I am out!

5. Alcohol

Does this one even need an explanation? 🙂


2 Months and Counting

I cannot believe that I have been married for 2 months today! I remember when our day was over and we were watching TV in our hotel room as husband and wife I was going through my friends SnapChats and had the sudden urge to look at my countdown app. It was so weird to see nothing there! The wedding was over and every second was worth it. We had so much fun and everything was beautiful. When I envisioned my wedding at a young age I wanted everything to be classic, beautiful and romantic being surrounded by all my closest friends and family. I am so blessed to be able to say that I was able to have my dream wedding. The best part was my husband shared the same hopes and dreams for his day too. I am so happy I have someone who didn’t “just show up”. He put so much time and effort into planning and making our day special with me. To me that made our day even better because everything that we envisioned came together at the end and it was perfect.

We were pretty laid back with all the planning so there wasn’t much stress involved. I think seeing the total cost of everything and how expensive it is to have a wedding stressed me out more than anything. I feel very fortunate and blessed to be able to have such an extravagant wedding.

I know it has only been 2 months but every second I am married to my husband is a blessing. I truly feel that I have found my soulmate. I couldn’t ask for a better partner for life and I am so happy to finally call him my husband.

Happy 2 months handsome! I love you forever.

Then, I give you life eternal. Everlasting love. The power of the storm. And the beasts of the earth. Walk with me to be my loving wife, forever. – Dracula
