Weekend-ing on a Tuesday

This weekend was a blur and I spent yesterday getting my sleep and running errands after such a busy weekend so you're getting a weekend recap on a Tuesday. And I don't even feel bad about it ;) 


We were up bright and early touring venues for the wedding!! We saw two places and I fell in love with the second one. Neither of us really liked it when we pulled up because it's not in the best location of Charlotte, but as soon as we came through the gates and started walking around, I loved it. We were there a little over an hour and I never once thought about what it looked like outside the gates. I just kept picturing marrying Christian there. 

After the tour, we took a nap. And by "we", I mean Zuko and Christian napped while I watched cheesy chick flicks and obsessed over the locations and decor. 

Friday night, we got pumpkins and Chipotle with our friends Sam and Jeremy. After dinner, we came back to our apartment to have a few pumpkin beers and carve our pumpkins. After seeing Erin's pumpkin, I desperately wanted a minion pumpkin... our didn't turn out as perfectly as hers did, but hey, we love him!


In order to tour venues on Sunday, I had to split my Sunday shift and I left work an hour and a hlaf early Thursday to get some extra sleep before venues, so I worked 10a - 5p. As much as I did not like being at work on my normal day off, it was a pretty decent work day. 

Once I got home, Christian had plans to be lazy and we carried those out perfectly. This is how much of the evening looked: 

I love my boys. 

Our tour wasn't until 12:30p so we tried to sleep in a little. I'm so used to being up and at work on Sunday that I couldn't sleep so I watched Say Yes to the Dress for a couple hours before we headed out. 

The venue was in a great location and we really liked it. Christian loved it and all I could see when thinking about it was all the extra work and money that would be necessary there versus the first place we loved -- which sent my stress level through the roof. I spent the rest of my day (including the 5 ours at work) stressing about what to pick because he loves it so much. 


After not really sleeping in all weekend, I slept in Monday morning and it was glorioussssss. Once I got up, I considered blogging but I was too stressed about picking a venue so that didn't happen. I then ran a ton of errands and managed to fit in a nail appointment. My nails were so rough I didn't even want people looking at my ring, so of course I had to fix that ;)
