These are our shock faces after realizing how easy it is to get married in Washington.

We’re now in the two week range until the big day! My dress is on the way. (Although I’ve yet to pick shoes.) Most of our thank you gifts are even ready to go! Unfortunately in order to move forward briskly with wedding plans while maintaining good grades, working, exercising and taking just enough time to chill I’ve been much less active here.

Sorry loves!

I thought surely I would be able to edit the yummy Menu photos in my camera, but nay. That was wishful thinking! You know I’m a dreamer.

So let’s call it what it is! Hiatus! I’m taking a break to massacre these finals next week and, the following week, pursue my biggest project to date: Happily ever after!

Don’t be upset, though! When I get back I’ll tell you alllllllll about it! Including sharing some wedding budget tips!


Miss soon-to-be Mrs Sunshine


Done, Done, Dooooooone!

Lord have mercy. It’s taken how long? Don’t answer that. I don’t want to know because I know it took at least twice as long as we projected, but, finally, the bathroom is complete. Finished.

This is that point in the story where I–if I were a drummer–would drop my sticks. Or if I was Samuel L. Jackson yell, “I SAY GODDAMN!” That’s how badass this moment is. Sometime over the summer our landlord had the idea to build us basement dwellers a bathroom of our own. He’s an engineer by day and home improvement guru come weekend. He drew up beautiful plans and got our input on how things should be. He picked gorgeous subway tiles and a toilet that [according to the box] can effectively flush a gallon of golf balls. We learned quite a bit. Apparently, Honeybee can poo more than a gallon of golf balls. And I, without a proper desk, can amass over 85 hours of math homework and study from the discomfort of my own bed. So there’s that.

Here’s this:

And as I mentioned before, the best part about the completion of this project [besides more convenient pee-ability] is that it begins another. I get to build myself a studio and rejuvenate Super Plaid’s practice space! And I’ll have time to do it now that I’ve finished my finals [fingers crossed on grades, that math was an absolute bitch]!! Yay. Score. Victory for the home team. And the crowd goes wild. In the next month, I’ll need to find a proper desk, chair, room divider, lighting and possibly paint! There’s nothing I love more than a project. Whoo hoo!
