Wedding Planning Made Easy…ish.

August 20th, 2017 I married my best friend… and then August 21st I went back to classes. But before I could even begin to think about classes I was focused on planning a wedding for 120 people! Anyone who has ever started planning a wedding can testify to the fact that the beginning is so much fun! But when I say the beginning, I ONLY mean the beginning.

Yes, of course picking the colors are fun, but you should be aware that after picking the colors of your special day will only be the beginning to a lot of more choices you’ll have to make. Don’t freak out though because it will get better as you keep going.

But remember….

Just. Keep. Going.

These are just some tips from my own wedding planning:

  2. Do not make every detail into the end of the world
  3. Go to your food tasting (BOTH of you)
  4. Pick a venue that suits your style
  5. Get your bridesmaids (groomsmen) cute little gifts!
  6. Meet your photographer before your wedding and come with ideas!
  7. Don’t be afraid to break tradition!
  8. If you’re looking for cheap and classy, floating candles are IN!
  9. Be SPECIFIC with your DJ with what songs you want played
  12. Rent a venue that also has decorations you can use!
  13. If you don’t want to buy or make your own decorations, rent em!

Of course, this list is not perfect! Everyone has their own to plan a wedding.

Like I said,

Just. Keep. Going.


Funniest videos online right now

Right now in our time there are so many different videos that float around the internet. My favorite genre of videos online are funny ones. It’s bad but I will sit and watch funny videos until I fall asleep (not that’s a good way to fall asleep)

I enjoy Facebook because it will just play next video right after the next video. But when I find a funny video I can’t help but save it and hope that there’s another like it.

This list is to help you get through your rainy days (everyone has them). Try these videos and you will see why I can’t stop laughing.

1. People vs chairs (or really vs anything)

These videos are for people who like to watch other people get hurt. Of course they’re not really getting hurt, but they are people who have just failed at doing whatever it is they’re trying to do, whether it’s sit in a chair, or dance on a table.

2. Pet videos

People post their pets doing funny things all the time, who knew animals could be so funny. Animals don’t really think like humans so they just kind of go with the flow, when cats hit dogs it’s really funny because the dogs have no idea what to do! They just wonder what it is they did wrong and walk away.


3. Baby videos

Babies are HILARIOUS, little babes trying foods for the first time are sure to make you laugh or make you want to have a baby. Babies who talk to each other are funny, babies who fart and the other starts crying because he got scared are funny. There are many different types.


4. People getting scared

Everyone loves a good scare (of course not too extreme for everyone) but everyone can say they’ve laughed at someone (whether they knew them or not) who got scared and they were there to witness it. If it’s not being done to us then we think it’s funny.


5. “Try not to laugh” Videos


I laugh at everything, therefore if I’m participating in watching a video that I’m not supposed to laugh at please note that I probably will be in tears by the end of it. There’s a specific video called Dad Jokes, these are jokes that have been prepared to sound like someone’s dad is telling them. These videos will literally have you rolling on the floor.

Everyone likes a good laugh, give some of these a try and I promise you won’t be sorry! Of course this will not be perfect but it’s something to keep you rolling!




Don’t forget to sleep

Sleep is very Essential for survival in the life of a college students. So many times I hear “I pulled 3 all-nighters this week” and I’m like….
Lemon head
THIS WEEK?! How are you living right now?! People don’t understand but when you don’t get any sleep you are a walking ZOMBIE!

Go ahead and grab your doppio espresso and try to tell yourself that you’re fine and that you’re awake and able to function properly! Your body literally NEEDS sleep to live.

A lot of people think I’m crazy when I say that I love sleep, but this isn’t a game. This isn’t just me talking about something I love like I love ice cream. No, this is about something that helps me live and continue on living.

Many people try to push themselves every week, but if you’re a student like me taking 18 credit hours + working 30hrs or more on top of that… it’s really hard to push through and to say that you can keep doing it.

While living this crazy life we might as take care of our bodies. So what’s right for them but of course don’t neglect your actual work. But personal days are allowed, even the hardest working people in the world can agree to that



You can always grab a doppio con panna and continue to push on, but don’t forget while you’re doing it you can always take a rest.

As this 4th week of classes begins this is just something that has been on my mind and I thought it would be best to share it with everyone!

Top 5 Starbucks Drinks (Coffee)

Working at Starbucks you see different people come into the store all of the time and ask for all kinds of drinks. This goes from a tall light/medium/dark coffee to a Venti Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato, most people want to come in a customize their own drink but don’t realize that most of the time they just don’t taste THAT great.

People come in to customize a tall iced coffee, they’ll add 15 pumps of vanilla and 2 pumps of hazelnut and extra cream and wonder why they can’t taste the coffee… Please realize that you did not order a single drop of coffee. BUT people like what they like, and they pay for it! So… it’s fine! But I want to make sure we have one thing clear before the end of this..

The more customization’s… the more sugar… the more $$$

But if you’re not a coffee drinker don’t worry about it, these 5 drinks should get you started:

  1. Pumpkin Spice Latte (yeah it’s that time again)
  2. Iced Caramel Macchiato
  3. Vanilla Iced Coffee with cream
  4. Caramel frappuccino (yes it does include coffee)
  5. Java chip frappuccino (for all you chocolate lovers out there)

These 5 drinks are the most ordered drinks I’ve ever seen. Feel free to customize them all, but just remember all that sugar!

If after this you STILL don’t like coffee, try absolutely all of the teas. The only one that’s iced without caffeine is the passion tea. These teas come sweet and unsweetened, but they are absolutely delicious either way!
