So as you guys know, I'm a planner. I say about a million times a day "ooh, i want my future house to look like that!" "ooh, I hope I marry someone like that!" "ooh, I want to have this certain career and drive this certain car..." and it gets a bit ridiculous. So when I thought about writing this post I thought "I can get everything down in one place and have a good laugh at myself in about 5 years." Sounds good to me.
Should I do house or husband first? Or career? Oh, the struggles of a grown up!
This seemed like a good place to start. I am obsessed with wedding planning, like every stereo typical girl, I know. #judge me
I love white. I have an unhealthy obsession with the color because it's so crisp and clean. I also love baby pink and gold, (the shiny royal kind, not the yellow kind). So those will probably be my wedding colors unless I have a brain injury and completely forget who I am and wake up goth. #likely. I love the idea of groomsmen wearing gray suits and baby pink bowties, swoon! I'm also pretty attached to the idea of having my reception under huge oak trees under tents that are all lit up, with a HUGE dance floor. I'm not sure how I'm going to handle the heat or the dirt, but I've got time to work that out.
I am obsessed with a lace dress and since I've pinned this 2.5 billion times, I obviously really like it. I don't know if I'd want lace all over (an exact replica of Duchess Kate's dress would be nice), but again, I've got time for that I guess.
As far as engagement pictures go, this is what they'll look like. That won't change. Even if I suddenly wake up goth, as previously mentioned.
Jk. I don't actually have a type, except to say I don't really like tattoos or long hair, but I do love Harry Styles. #onlyexception
I guess if I had to narrow down the most important thing it in a person it would be a strong relationship with God which would make them humble and kind. Being a kind person is so important to me, because even when they say things they shouldn't say or do things that aren't nice, you know that they didn't do it on purpose, with cruel intentions, and knowing that makes any bad situation better, because everyone makes mistakes. Other than that, they will have to be ambitious, smart, witty, good at communicating, and honest. And it helps if they look good in a suit. (;
I want someone who isn't afraid to be silly and have fun (even if it's a tad embarrassing) and not worry about what everyone else is thinking. I want someone who loves to analyze books and movies and politics like I do, but has hobbies and goals of their own too. I want someone whose family is very important to them and who they hang out with a lot. I want someone who always does what's right and who is just a good person that's strong in who he is. I want someone who is not afraid to question all the things they think they know and is open-minded. I want someone who loves to go on adventures and who loves surprises. My biggest pet peeves are people with no motivation or direction, bad grammar, no manners, and total insecurity.
I absolutely adore the look of this house. I've always wanted a house that's in a neighborhood and that's good for decorating! I want a nice front porch to be able to sit on (I would love a second story porch to hang flags from on 4th of July too), a big backyard, and a circle driveway. For some reason circle driveways make me feel fancy. #dontask
I love New England-y style houses with brick and blue shutters, to be very specific, but I also love Southern Style plantation homes. I would love to have a monogrammed front gate (duh) and if not in a neighborhood tunnel of trees covering the driveway. Think I've thought enough about it?
If I couldn't live in a neighborhood, this would be absolutely perfect. I'm obsessed with the windows all around and the white with blue shutters, and the huge yard, and wrap around porch!
Honestly, I'm not really sure what I want as a career yet. Part of me wants to be (for lack of a better word) a kick-ass lawyer politician. But the other part of me wants to be a really good mom and wife that packs cute lunches and goes to PTA meetings and makes dinner every night. I don't know if I can do both of those things, but I do know that my family makes me the happiest now, and so I know they will always take precedence in my life. When you die no one says "ooh, she was such a great lawyer that always got her work done in time." In my world they say, "ooh, she always had the best holiday decorations and made the best PB&J sandwiches!" I'm not sure if I'll stay in my hometown or move up to the East Coast (which I'd love), or maybe England when I marry Harry Styles? Who knows? Not I.
The one thing I know about my life family wise is that they are gonna be really freakin' stylish. And that's about it. To me, happiness isn't about money, so while I don't know how great I'd be at being poor, I think if I really loved the person I was with (and he was super hot), I could rough it.
What would your dream life look like? Do you have an obsessive plan like I do?
All my love,
