Splurging when I should be saving...

My head is spinning. I can't concentrate. I come into work, and I try to focus on designing this casino and finishing the drawings and the specifications, seeing as construction has already begun and they are already pouring the first floors. I need to get my head in the game and just focus.

But I can't. I just can't. How can any girl focus on anything when she has access to the Internet, which means that she can discover an absolute plethora of wedding blogs, style blogs, idea blogs, cooking blogs...and did I mention wedding blogs? I swore to myself that I wouldn't get sucked in, I wouldn't become that girl that becomes a bridezilla and sweats every little detail about her wedding. And seeing that I've only been engaged for a couple of weeks, you're probably asking yourself (well, probably not, since you don't know me, but just indulge me here), "How can you possibly be stressed already? You haven't even started planning a wedding." And that's exactly why I can't focus. There are so many decisions to be made, expectations to be met, things to be arranged. When we announced our engagement to his parents over the weekend, his mother excitedly asked for my mother's phone number so she could phone and introduce herself - and this, folks, made my head spin and just added to my stress level. "What? Our families meeting? I...never thought of that." I guess I just didn't realize all of the coordination involved when both families live in different states, and the newly engaged couple lives in another state. Argh.

Anyway. So, to alleviate my stress, I bought myself two things on Etsy. I figure that I need to start saving money right away (oh, and I need to move out of my apartment ASAP, which is also a huge stressor for me, seeing as I need to pack, and bring the cat, and we all know how easy it is to introduce a new kitty to a home that already has two dogs...), so I let myself splurge today. The pretty earrings are from JuneDesigns, and my awesome (and custom!) hat is from aknitimi.

Deep breaths, lots of bubble baths, and chocolate at regular intervals! Congrats on your engagement, and very nice choices - they'd look great worn together!
