Life Update & What’s Coming! (A GIVEAWAY?!)

HOLY MOLY. Where has the time gone?!?
I feel like I say this with every blog post lately, but WOW i’ve been gone for awhile! I really really REALLY want to change that. Does anyone even miss me in bloglandia?!
Our life has taken huge turns lately and i’m still getting used to them! If you’re interested in hearing about a life update and what’s coming up in the ‘BOMBSHELL WIFE LIFE’ future, stay tuned…!

Well, baby girl started KINDERGARDEN. Excuse me, what?!?!? I seriously can NOT believe it’s already “that time”. Five years old has been a troubling age for me, too. The sass, and the attitude, and the meltdowns that come with five years old makes me want to lose my dang mind! It’s been rough and it’s been an ADJUSTMENT. Anyone else experience this?!? Also with the sass comes the most gentle and caring human being I know. I’ve said this for years about baby girl, but she truly is one of the most caring and compassionate humans I know! It melts my heart! (When i’m not wanting to rip my hair out.)

My best friend just got married and we drove over 16 hours each way for the occasion! It was so beyond amazing and couldn’t have been more perfect or beautiful! We have been friends for over 7 years and being by her side on her big day is something I wouldn’t have missed for the world! You know those super cute barn weddings you see on Pinterest and you think “wow, that is so gorgeous!”?! Yeah, her wedding was one of those! Absolutely stunning and such a fun night!

(If you follow me on instagram you’ve already seen all these big events so I apologize for a repeat)

One BIG THING coming up in my future is the Summit 2015 Conference! I haven’t talked about this yet because honestly i’ve been a little intimidated by it. This is my FIRST blogger conference I will be attending! I was so beyond excited when the people of this great organization reached out to me and asked me to attend.
It’s actually a HUGE honor and I think it’s HUGE for my blog!
It’s located in San Diego! (Oct. 23-24) Can you say VACATION?! This is open to ALL moms looking to raise happy and HEALTHY families! Some of the AWESOME sponsors of this event include Solgar, Veri, SmartFlour, and Dr. Bronners! Want to sign up? DO SO HERE and use the code WOW30 for 30% off!
Where are my Cali friends at?! (Or my Arizona friends who want to carpool?! EH?!?!?) Sound like you?!?! Im giving away a FREE ticket over on my Instagram!

M and I are also in the process of launching a new business! I am so beyond excited for this! Again, if you follow me on instgram, you’ve heard me rant about how he is such an entrepreneur. Well, he’s at it again and i’m so excited because it’s a business i’ve wanted to do for quite some time now! Want all the deets?! Stay tuned!

I’ve been thinking of setting more of a “blogging schedule” for myself. What do you guys think about that? What kind of posts do you like to read? Drop me a quick comment! I’d love to hear from you guys! I miss you all so much and I really will start blogging more! But for now, head over to my instagram and enter to win a free ticket to this awesome conference!

Sometimes we’re really cute

I think my favorite part about “wedding planning” was taking our ‘Save the Date’ pictures! It truly reminded me how much I just LOVE M. We can be silly, and serious, and just be….in love! I kept looking at him and saying “I have no idea what i’m doing” and we would just laugh. I love that about him. I love that I don’t have to pretend to know what i’m doing, or pretend like i’m good at things. 
I was so excited to finally meet our photographer, who happens to be his cousin. Along with excited, I was a tad nervous. When he told me he “knew someone who took pictures” I was expecting someone who just owned a camera and took pictures for fun. Luckily, our photographer is AMAZING! She gave us direction and made us feel comfortable, which I loved and ultimately needed. This photo shoot reassured me that the photos of our wedding will be BEAUTIFUL! 
I am so in love with these pictures! 

(Remember this whole ‘I don’t know what i’m doing’ thing?!)

Sometimes we’re really cute. Wouldn’t you agree?! 😉

Oh ya, I have a wedding to plan!

While i’ve been stalking pinterest religiously planning my wedding, i’ve had so many ideas coming and going through my head! 
The wedding planning process has gone a little something like this…

As soon as I got engaged I went out and bought every wedding magazine in site. Soon after, I bought a strawberry shake from Sonic and proceeded to lounge by my pool and day dream about thousand dollar weddings I cant afford. Hey, a girl can dream! 
Also, I did a very “bride” thing and ran to the nearest bridal show I could find. Who doesn’t love going to look at 509390 different cakes, caterers, floral arrangements, so forth and so on?!

While at this bridal show I came across one venue that I knew my fiancé would LOVE. I myself was set on a different one (from pictures), but I knew he would love this one. I went and looked at the one I loved and although it was beautiful, I felt like the other place might be it. We went and toured the venue I knew M would like and I was right, he loved it. (1 POINT BRIDE) We called the next day to tell the events coordinator we loved it and wanted to book. Soon following, we signed our lives away. 😉 

I’ve spent countless hours on Pinterest trying to find things I love. I’ve even attempted a few DIY projects. Lets just say i’m NOT the crafty one out of the group, but hey, i’m trying! 

We also had our “Save the Date” photos done and I could not have been more happy with the way they turned out! I had so much fun shooting them and it just reassures me that I am truly marrying my best friend! 
Wedding planning has been an adventure for me so far. Its a lot different than just pinning things I like on pinterest. Can you believe this stuff actually costs MONEY?! Okay, kidding, but still. Its been a lot of fun so far! We still have a LOT of things to figure out, but for right now, I feel as if i’m staying on track! 
6 more months until this handsome man gets to be my husband!
