I've been meaning to write...

On Tuesday I put a post-it (LOVE those btw) in my planner that read "had one of those days" little did I know it would turn into one of those weeks. My purpose of leaving myself a little note was to jog my memory...( ya know even though I'm young and all I still have frequent lapses of memory... not quite sure what that's all about I just continue to pretend it's normal)

Anywho, you can now see why I have to leave myself post-its...

I left myself a note so that I would remember to write.

Often during the day, things come up (in my mind that is) and I think, I need to write.

I had one of those days on Tuesday, you know the ones where everything seems real peachy and then the next thing you know you're in a tailspin... well that happened, and little did I know that it would turn into one of those weeks.

The crazy kind.

You see, I've been a tad busy lately trying to pin down wedding details, being a good employee, getting this body into shape; and in doing all that, I've started pondering about what the next few months will hold and how drastically my life could change.

I started thinking about what it is exactly I want out of life...

this is a big questions ya know...

that leads to other big questions

the scary kind.

And to be honest I haven't really put much thought into them. I'm the type of person that just goes with the flow, or at least I think I do, maybe I should ask Mr. R his opinion on that...

I try to be happy with whatever life brings my way... not to say that I'm not a planner and driven

but those big questions kept lingering and I started pondering about what really makes happy, what I love, what I could live with and what I could NOT live without. How (in a perfect world... which I know is not reality but a girl can dream right?!?!?) I would envision our life in 5+ years.

So I'm asking......

Give me your best LIFE advice.

What did you do right?

What do you wish you would have done differently? or better?

How is it being a grown up?

I'd kind of like to be a kid forever and let my parents take care of me....

If you could do it all over again would you change a thing?

Most days...

Most days I long to sleep in...

I dream of snuggling under the covers all day...

And then the alarm goes off

And reality sets in

And I'm thankful I have a job to go to

And a warm bed to sleep in

And a reason to dress up

And then...

I roll over and push snooze for at least 10 more mins

Feathering the nest...

I've been feathering a lot lately...

Not sure if it's the excitement of the wedding
having our own place
or the simple fact that I love to shop


I could not resist this beautiful bedding

It was on sale...

Does that count for something?

I also scored some pretty scchhwweet wedding shoes tonight at T.J's

for a mere $40

They are soooo FUN!!!

I would show you pic but they are peep toes

which means well manicured toe nails

which mine are NOT

actually they could use a good pedi

Maybe tomorrow :)

2010 is going to be a big year here at EmersynLane.

We'll be doing lots of Celebrating...

A wedding
A graduation
Possibly a move
A new job for Mr. R

Lots of things to look forward to.

Speaking of a move...

Apparently Mr. R does NOT necessarily appreciate my love for all things vintage

Recently when he was having a conversation with his Grandma about how I would be decorating our home he replied....

"she likes old sh*t"

Thanks Babe!!

Slightly off topic, my mom and I made a trip to Bloomsbury loft and the antique mall in Powell.

I came home with a gorgeous six pane window

It was even pink and chippy... just perfect!

My last trip there resulted in an antique door with an awesome ceramic knob

I told Mr. R not to worry...

I was building our home one piece at a time :)
