Friday Blogging, Featured, & Hunger Games!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Friday afternoons are often a time when we waste the rest of our work day surfing the web, procrastinating on Facebook, and watching the clock tick slowly by waiting for quitting time.

I have been meaning to post about two blogs that have featured our upcoming nuptials. First off is the lovely blog post written by my bridal party hair accessory creator Buttons n' Blossoms, featuring the lovely flower fascinators she made for my bridesmaids and our flower girl.

Also, Oregon Bride Magazine featured our snowy engagement shoot with Jennifer O'Donnell Photography. Kalie Eyman did a beautiful job on this post!

Earlier this month I went antique shopping for a few things we are looking for to help decorate for the wedding. And found this beautiful dresser that I am going to use as a guest book table.

Picked it up at Stars Antique Mall in Portland
Earlier today when I was Pinning Away, I saw this on the Wedding Chicks blog. And I thought, I could definitely do something similar in the small top drawer (what do you call that? lingerie drawer? underwear drawer?) of my dresser.

Not only is it Friday and I'm ready to start my weekend (and Spring Break), but it is also opening day of The Hunger Games! Last week I finished the first book. It took me forever to get up the motivation to pick up the book (actually decided not to buy it—that's hard with my book obsession—but since everyone and their mom owns it, I decided to borrow it) and see what the hype was all about. I can't lie that it did take me a moment to get into the book. I would read a chapter here and there before bed, and then easily go to sleep. But by chapter 18 I was hooked! I couldn't put it down! I stayed up way too late some nights and even took it to my sub job and read it during lunch and prep time—at least it was a good conversation starter with sixth graders! I am waiting to borrow the second book from someone, but until then I can satisfy my hunger for the movie!

Last night I even had a dream that it turned into a Broadway musical and the singing and dancing was violent, yet beautiful! Sometimes I wonder about my highly detailed film rolled dreams. I think I inherit that from my mother. are some great and absolutely dangerous things I found online.

And lastly, since we all know I spend a lot of time on wedding blogs these days, I think this one is necessary and so genius! So if Katniss and Peeta got married in a trendy shabby chic sorta way, I imagine it would look something like this:

The only thing missing is a sweetheart table in a cave, complete with lamb stew and maybe a berry tart (that is not poisonous mind you!).

Now, let the games begin!
