I Can Hear Those Wedding Bells Chime…

So with everything about the house getting done, and school keeping me so busy, wedding planning has really fallen by the wayside. I still have some time, since the date is set for May 2015, but I thought I would post some of my inspirations for the big day!

Most of my wedding planning is done on Pinterest and The Knot. My Pinterest account can be found here…

I love Pinterest. I love, love, love it. I will never be able to express my love for Pinterest enough. I’m sure you understand.

I also love ombre. And I love cake. So let’s talk ombre wedding cakes.  Specifically pink ombre wedding cakes. 🙂

Ombre wedding cakes

The ruffles are so feminine and delicate. So pretty. Yet interesting. With extra ombre interest. So… interest with interest on the side. And pink is one of my wedding colors. A spring wedding without pink? I don’t think so!

Okay. Now check out that one on the left. You see it? The cake with the pink ruffles down the side? Yep. That’s the one. My soul-cake. I stole this pic from this random blog. Now the problem I have with that cake is that it is circular. Boring.

So easy fix. I am going to make it square! The true test will come later… because my mother and I plan on making my cake to save some moolah. So I’m sure closer to the date there will be plenty of fun cake pictures to look at. But for now, I will have to settle with dreaming about my cake and researching tips for baking and pricing out pans and deciding on cake flavors. Right now the fiance and I are leaning towards chocolate on bottom, white/vanilla in the middle, and lemon on top. Ooh-la-la, right? I don’t care as long as I get lemon. I love lemon desserts! Did I mention I say I love things a lot?

Anyways… that is my wedding cake. Well, that is what it looks like in my head. Hopefully I was clear enough with how it will look. I’m so excited for my wedding! Ah!

So my bed is calling to me, and I’m about to sign off. This has been the first official wedding post on bride and a poor chick. Huh. You’d think it would’ve come sooner. Meh.

Kitchen Updates

After a long, long time…. Here is another house update. We have a very livable house now. No, I’m not kidding! And it’s still nowhere near done, but compared to other pictures on my blog… it looks fantastic!

So I have recently been painting my kitchen! We went with a gray beige from Menard’s, and I love it! I told the fiancé I wanted a griege, and he found one! Literally – the name of the color is simply “Greige”. We have all but one wall in the kitchen done, but I am waiting to do the one that stretches into the hallway until we patch up the drywall in the hall.

Below you can see the wall color compared to the white inside the window.

And next is the kitchen! Paint, counters, appliances, cabinets, & all!

Kitchen

Our appliances are Kenmore stainless steel. The countertop is from Lowe’s, and almost everything else construction wise is from Menard’s. We live just down the road from one, so it is hard not to shop there!

The next order of business is to finish painting. After that we need to sand the rest of the upper cabinets, then prime, paint, and install! After that, my open storage shelving will leave and take up residence in the garage to make room for more cabinets!

My living is also in the middle of a facelift! Eventually I want it to be yellow, white, and gray. Until I can finish a slip cover for the couches, it’s hard to move on from the stained wood to white paint. But I’ve been able to bring in my yellow! Here is my Christmas mantle with yellow walls around it!

Okay, well I think that is about all for now! Off to work more on some secret projects! 😉
