Updates On Everything and As Promised, A Giveaway!!

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope that everyone's week has been amazing so far. I thought I would give you guys a few updates on things that have been going on. A week or so ago I posted about how horrible of a time we are having with finding a place to live. Well, that has not changed. We still do not have a place to live and it is really starting to stress me out. We have been looking at all kinds of places. And yes, I realize that I shouldn't be so picky right now, but I am not going to live somewhere where I don't feel safe and where myself or Aran have to worry about our cars getting broken into or possibly being harmed walking to and from our door. I understand that this can happen at any place, but there are places that are more prone to things like this happening here in this city and I refuse to live there. I don't think that is being picky. That is just being smart/safe if you ask me.

The whole pet deposit thing is still an issue as well. I'm still not sure why people are asking so much money for two cats. But any who, right now the plan is to move in with family or friends for a few weeks if we haven't found anything yet. There may be something in the works right now for a place, but I am trying to not get my hopes up so I am not going to say anything else about it right now.

In other news, we are still moving full steam ahead on the wedding plans. Here within the next month we are going to be meeting with our florist and the people who are doing our cake. I think Aran and I have almost come to a decision on what the cake should look like. At first he said he didn't care about what it looked like, he only cared about how it tasted. Well then I told him how I wanted them to decorate it and he told me no, so we were back to square one. But, I think we are pretty close on reaching a compromise. I don't really want a white cake with decorations. That is just to plain for me. I want it to be colorful and catch everyone's eye. I don't want it to just blend in to the background. So I was thinking of doing a pink cake with brown and teal accents and that idea was nixed. So we are thinking about doing a brown cake with the pink and teal accents which I like just as much.

As far as flowers go, I am pretty set on what I want those to look like, it will just be a matter of how much they are and if they can get them in January. I have also decided that I want a Wishing Tree at the wedding, so I am currently getting ideas for that. Laura over at Saying I Do had a really cute one and that is where I got the idea. If you are looking for some great ideas, you should head on over to her blog.

And now for the biggest news, this post marks my 99th post which means that my next post is my 100th!! Yay!!! So my next post will hold all of the details of my giveaway so please keep an eye out for that! I will say that I have a few prizes for the winner and they may just include a pair of their very own glitter flats made by me and possibly some sweet treats. So please be on the lookout within the next few days for all of the details.

Well, that is all of the updates that I have for you today. I hope that everyone is having an awesome week and I can't wait to see how many of you enter the giveaway. Happy Hump Day!


  1. Aw, that sucks that you are having such a tough time finding the right place, but if you have a backup plan then I say, don't settle. You will be living there for awhile, it's best not to hate it before you even move in.
    Good luck finding a place!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
