If We Were Having Coffee Together . . .

I'm taking a page from The Perpetual Page-Turner and posting what it might be like if we were to have coffee together . . . even though the pictures from my bachelorette party I will litter this post with could make the title: "If we were having Dirty Shirleys Together . . . " ;)

If we were having coffee . . . I would tell you all about how much fun I had this past weekend at my bachelorette party in Las Vegas. When I think about all that went into planning it and all the girls that traveled out there with me to celebrate, I seriously want to cry. I'm not even being dramatic, I am so humbled that my like-a-sister-cousin Jennifer and my sister-in-love Tara threw such an incredible party (the details!!) and that my friend Nicole and future sister-in-loves Allison and Deanna came out with me! Tara's mom even joined us the last day for the most fun-filled girls weekend ever! If we were having coffee I would probably go on and on about the fun for HOURS!

If we were having coffee . . . I would tell you how surreal it is that I'm getting married in THIRTEEN DAYS. I still have a lot to do (even though I am pretty well organized), but the pressure to pull off the day is so stressful I feel frozen in place. I have such a great support system though, that I know it will all be okay. I am not at all worried about getting married, I'm worried about the epic party I'm in charge of! ;) In 2 weeks I will be getting ready to go to Cancun and I think when that time comes I will be especially relieved, happy and excited to start my life as a wife!

If we were having coffee . . . I would tell you how cute my new almost-nephew is! Tyler's sister had a baby last week (the first in their immediate family) and we were lucky enough to drive up to northern California for his birth! I can't wait to see him again at the wedding!! Congratulations to Kim and Ryan on new baby Malcolm! :)

If we were having coffee . . . I would embarrassingly admit that I have not really done hardly any reading in almost TWO MONTHS! I listened to Lauren Graham's audio book Someday, Someday Maybe but other than that, I suck! I can't even believe my Dystopian September is finished - I realized it this morning and was blown away!! I do think I get a free pass planning a wedding, but I don't know that I'll make my reading goals for the year! I've all but given up on the TBR List Challenge. I think it's all fun, stupid, mindless books for me for the rest of the year!

If we were having coffee . . . I would ask you to call all the people invited to my wedding who have not RSVP'd because I'm so annoyed by them (a week after the request date!) I don't even want to do it right now haha!

If we were having coffee . . . I would probably have to cut it short because I have 12 more days to get a TON of stuff DONE!!!! ;)  Until then . . . .


  1. You get a pass for many, many things when planning a wedding. :) And if we were having coffee together, we would definitely be talking about Vegas, one of my favorite places!

  2. hahaha,,
    i looked at your photos on IG and think of how much dose of fun you must had on your bachelorette party. thanks for the coffee :) let's grab some again sometimes soon

  3. Omg you are getting married so soooon! How exciting!!! I got married 2 years ago and OMG that planning time and right before the wedding was quite stressful. EEE. But it will all be fine. Honest. Your bachelorette party looks like a blast!! Mine was kind of lame (shh don't tell my sis that)...2 of my bridesmaids were family and were underage, my one bridesmaid was pregnant, my sister doesn't drink and has kids and so it was just my friend Kelsey and I drinking the night we went out in Philly haha. We did have fun dancing but it was pretty low key!

    And omg I never realized how annoying it was when people don't respond to RSVPs until I planned my own wedding. I wanted to apologize to anybody who ever had to track me down.!

    And yeah...I was so infrequent with reading and blogging when I was planning mine but it's understandable. who needs MORE stress? I came back from the honeymoon so ready to get back to blogging! And oh god..the honeymoon..I read SOOOO much on the beach. It was amazing.

    You are going to be a beautiful bride. Enjoy the day...it goes by SOOO fast. Like I almost wanted to cry because suddenly the night was over!
