Wedding Wednesday- I Said YES to the dress!

I did it! I found the perfect dress!

We went shopping, twice, but it was all we needed. My mom, sister, and I went to Nordstrom Bridal suite two weeks ago, and I fell in love with the most gorgeous dress that was waaayyyy out of budget. However, I was going to see if there was anything in a similar style.

The next week, we went out to a dress trying appointment, and met it with a lot of disappointment. My mom noticed another dress shop and suggested that we head in there just because we were in the area. This is where we should have been all along! There were tons of beautiful dresses, and I wasn't intending to try anything on, but decided to. The first one I tried on there was the first one that made me cry, my mom cry, and my sister (who, to quote her, does "not cry for happy things only for sad ones) loved it. Shopping was done. It was the dress. Don't worry it isn't pictured here. I borrowed all of these ;)

I text my fiancé to let him know and to tell him how surreal it was. He agreed. Honestly, to me, it was almost more surreal than setting a date and picking a venue, I got my princess dress!

Wedding, Shopping, Yes to the Dress!

Comparison Will Kill You

Do you ever get hit in the face with advice that totes pertains to you? BAM the above. My sister is constantly reminding me not to compare situations, or people, or things because everyone is there own person, each situation is its own situation, and each thing is its own thing. I am grateful to have a smart sister ;)

It is super easy for me to fall into the habit of comparing myself, or my friends, or situations. No bueno. I think I try to justify or reason why things are the way they are by comparing them to each other, but that is not the way to go about it. Instead, I feel like I should allow for things to just be... again my control freak ways want to take over and put myself in charge of managing everything, but that just ain't the way to go about life y'all!

So here is to not comparing myself, my situations, others, and other's situation. Here is to freeing myself from comparison.

Do you find yourself comparing? What do you do to try and stop?

Life, Comparison, Inspiration,

I made macarons// Hung out with the fiancé// We headed out the Santa Monica last Sunday to check out the HUGE Ultimate Frisbee tournament, Lei Out. We had fun cheering on some friends, walking (FOR MILES AND MILES), and catching the end of the Sea Hawks vs. Packers game.

Macaroons, Fiancé, Santa Monica,

You Are Awesome.

Do you ever have those days where it just feels like you can't do anything right and things just aren't going your way.
Its all good. Its one day, maybe a week, maybe a month, maybe a year.

No matter what life throws at you, remind yourself that you are beautiful and you will do great.
