Random rambling

The blog has been kinda silent lately, hasn't it? Sorry about that, dear readers. It seems I'm having a bit of writers block. I've been reading the "Bees Life" series over on Weddingbee, and it makes me want to be a better blogger. I really don't know if I'll apply to be a Bee, but it's nice reading the stories of these women who I admire so much. I'm learning a lot from them.

My job, while incredibly boring and mundane, keeps me busy most of the day. Plus, it involves zero typing, so writing there always makes me nervous. When I get home, I want to spend time with BRG and feel guilty writing blogs or browsing WB. I know he would encourage my writing, and we don't necessarily have deep conversations...ever, but I still feel bad ignoring him. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it) my temp job ends at the end of September. This should give me some more free time to focus on the wedding and blogging (until my next job starts...whenever that might be.)

I have a lot of posts swimming around in my head. There is one in particular about my dad that I'm working up the nerve to write. Just gotta sit down and do it. It will be a doozey. Ugh.

I think the fact is I'm not really doing anything wedding-related right now. I don't really know what to do, I guess. We're just under 9 months out, we have the *big* stuff (photographer/dj/venue/dress/etc), and we're sort of in a lull. BRG brought up the other day that he's kind of having a mini internal freakout. He wants to see a list so he can check things off and know that we're on schedule. I'll get him one from The Knot or so he can calm down a bit. I think he's having a hard time seeing that we still have a lot of time to get things done.

Oh! Our 2nd engagement session is next week!! This time it's with our amaaaazing wedding photographers, Linczak Photography. I am SO excited, but kind of nervous. I really want these to turn out better than the last time we did this. I'm still figuring out what I'm going to wear. Actually, I have to figure out what BRG is going to wear, too. Better get on that.

Well, this was all over the place, wasn't it? What do you write about when you're in a lull? I'm not nervous about revealing relationship stuff...maybe I should write about us more? Hmm...


  1. Writer's block sucks, hang in there, it will pass!

  2. Hi! I found your blog through a link on the weddingbee boards...just wanted to say that I too am enjoying the "Bee's Life" series and it really does make me want to be a better blogger also. Hang in there--as you get back into planning, the words will come much easier. I just went through the same thing myself!
