in which i freak out

Usually I do some “fancy” editing so you can’t see the mess behind me. That sounds like a metaphor for my life right now! HA. But urgh….those boxes are full of things I am getting rid of in June [add it to my A.W. to-dos – after wedding] and those bags contain wedding related things that must be hauled to Fort Worth. Last weekend I was in Dallas helping my sister [and returned to a flood!] and this weekend I will make the 4 hour journey once again – this time for a roller derby tournament [two bouts in one day?! ouch!] and pre-wedding appointments.
Also? My dad saw me the other day and asked, “What happened to your face???” – yikes. Thank you stress and hormones for the beautiful acne that I can’t stop touching. I have to be picking at myself or playing with my hair to deal with anxiety. [It’s funny because my co-workers are well aware of these signs.] But when I don’t have time to do my hair, I pick even more. :-/
And then of course April and May are state benchmark tests…which everyone knows runs the educational system, and therefore causes even more extra stuff and meetings to deal with. /rant
On a positive note?? Daniel booked our honeymoon! We will be staying in Kauai for 6 nights. He has signed us up for 3 fun things [I am working on a 4th]. But mostly I just want to lay around and read and sunbathe. Ahhhh….I definitely deserve it. For the first time in my life, I know that I deserve this break that has been planned out for me. ๐Ÿ™‚
On another positive note: I am working on my FITNESS. For real this time. I plan on blogging my progress towards the end of the week. I joined the Revolt Now uprising and am still on the Advocare train [thanks to my fitness bud over at Your Favorite Girlfriend].
And after almost a month long hiatus [thanks life], I am back at CrossFit and have been running [scary]. ๐Ÿ™‚
Anyway, apologies for my rant. Such is life, right? I hope you are well. Please feel free to offer me:
-skincare advice
-Kauai suggestions/advice
-workout tips
-positive vibes
-sugary foods [ hahaha jk….but not really.. :-P]



  1. Thanks for the link! And I know it's pointless to say this, but stop stressing yourself out! Everything will be great and if you need anything, I'm just down the hall or a phone call away ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I'm getting married two and a half weeks from now… I totally know what you mean about stress and break outs! Hopefully you find a little time to relax. Get your nails done, it's what I'm gonna do ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha

  3. Not that I think tanning is good for you–but I tanned before my wedding to clear up the acne on my shoulders and it worked GREAT. I think I went 7 times total, but my acne was clearing up by the third.

  4. First of all, not gonna lie, I work for Lush so I'm a little biased. But! I absolutely love their acne spot treatment/serum Grease Lightning. I use it all over my face to fade acne scars, but it also helps with breakouts. Tea tree oil + witch hazel + aloe!

  5. don't worry! everything is going to turn out SO beautiful and SO wonderful! you are too awesome and creative for it to be anything but that ๐Ÿ™‚ just keep thinking about that honeymoon!

  6. Ohh your stress will melt away on that honeymoon in Kauai! My right eye twitched non-stop for at least 6 months prior to my wedding! I finally relaxed and it went away once we landed in Hawaii. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And I'm doing Revolt Fitness, too! Or well.. I was. And then I kind of quit. Uhh.. but I'm going to see about getting back on the wagon because it really is a great program!

  7. I'm planning my wedding now too, and even though life is awesome in an objective sense, in my brain everything is crazy, hectic and TOTALLY anxiety inducing. I also feel like I keep hurting people's feelings. Am I bridezilla?

    People keep telling me to savor my engagement but I would rather skip it and get to the married, living with my love part.
