online shopping is bad for my health

This is one of those weeks where I wake up everyday and cannot believe it is not Friday yet. Needless to say, I did call back the dress store yesterday and talked to 2 very nice people and set a fitting appointment for December. Glad to check one more thing off the list.

I have been spending entirely too much time on etsy. Setting up a favorites was extra dangerous. So here are some things I want/corresponding goals:

1.) find fabric!

probably smarter to find fabric at Jo-Anns since I need a lot of one print and etsy mostly has random 1 yard pieces but it doesn't stop me from looking!

2.) find inspiration for bridesmaid gifts! (no hints ladies!)
3.) find inspiration for other related family/helper friends gifts!
**question: how crazy do gifts have to be? Can they be little? I feel like I recall people getting super nice gifts at my cousin's wedding.
4.) find inspiration for wedding bands! (I think I like simple)
5.) find inspiration for headpieces! ( like this!)

While I do not want one, I can, at times like this, see why people hire people to do the whole thing for them.


  1. That head piece is so so pretty. I would shop at Joann's for fabric. Often fabric on etsy is hand printed or limited addition. It is beautiful and worth the money but if you want larger quantities at a lower price you should just go to Joann's.If you sign up to be on their mailing list they send you coupons with sizable discounts. I use mine every time it comes in. Their marketing strategy works!

    p.s. If you ever want a buddy to go fabric shopping with I might know someone who is into that stuff....

  2. ya ya! the longer I go without hanging out with you, the longer my list grows of stuff i want to do together. at this point, you might as well stay at my house for 3 days straight :)
