I wrote this on Tumblr a few months back, and I think it is so true I'm gonna post it here as well.

Sunday Evening

I ended up going to a Super Wal-Mart this afternoon for groceries to get a new set of plates. Kill two birds with one stone. Yes, I apparently wanted to torture myself. It was even more crowded than I thought and they were also stocking everything in the store. If I drank it, it would be time for a glass of wine. 

The good thing is that now I'm home and I have food to put in my pretty little kitchen. 

The rest of the apartment is unpacked but need curtains for the windows and pictures hung. I moved the first weekend of November, so I have missed out on NaBloPoMo but I'm excited to see others participating. Next year!

I'm moving next weekend, so you know what that means?! Find every excuse to procrastinate!

Actually, I'm going through things in my office and doing the less-noisy stuff until my fiance wakes up. He works 12 hours shifts, 7pm to 7am so most of my Saturdays have consisted of me being quiet and/or leaving the house. I've already gone to Target. 

I know this is going to be a shock since its the rest of the worlds favorite activity, but I loathe moving. I become a buddist whenever I start packing and kind of want to get rid of everything. I'm not a pack rat, but over 3.5 years you accumulate a lot of random chargers and electrical wires and for some reason I have way too many pens. Those kinds of things. I just want to get a dumpster and go to town. Not gonna happen, but I can fantasize. 

I'm moving from a three bedroom to a one bedroom, so there is downsizing. We didn't really use the third bedroom. Originally we had roommates and then it became the laundry sorting room. Condensing from house to apartment is going to be interesting, I will miss having a garage. 

The only overhead lighting in the apartment is in the kitchen and dining area (which will be where we have our desktops set up) and doesn't leak much into the living space. I bought a floor lamp for the living room, and am thinking of doing string lights in the bedroom (along with 2 table lamps next to bed)

Pinterest Inspiration

Little less than 6 months until the wedding! Things are going well planning wise, have found a photographer and the final step is the florist which I'll deal with after the move. 

's all for now.

I saw Guardians of The Galaxy for the second time today. It is always fun when you actually like something that's a pop-culture phenomenon. I've been spending a lot of time listening to the soundtrack thanks to Kree.  

Music never fails to spin me into poetic musing. The hurdle is getting over myself and worrying that nobody cares what I think. That is true of us all, until we share something and some small percentage of people relate. Simple as that...

I'll let you know when that changes.

So much has been going on in my little life.

My fiance had not one but two Cardiac Ablation's done, one at the end of the June, the other on my birthday (July 24th). Was not so happy about the surgery being rescheduled for my birthday...but what are you gonna do? Sometimes, life takes your plans for a birthday vacation and says NOPE, you won't be doing that.  The good news is that he now has no heart arrhythmia and has a great heart otherwise. That is a good birthday gift.

I turned 29, so there's that....

I'm not freaking out too much, just a little frustrated with myself that I have not accomplished most of the things that I've wanted to do in my 20's. With that said, I've always been a believer that it is never "too late" to do anything and so the yearly reminder that time is passing and passing fast gives me a nudge that I need to stop putting things off. Especially if I'm putting things off because of my weight, which I tend to do.

I went blonde! Finally, after years of talking about it I finally did it. I was blonde up until age 12, so I feel comfortable with the color and if anything I will probably go lighter the next round. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you will have already seen at least 400,000 pictures. ;)

Wedding planning is full steam ahead and now I'm freaking out about saving money for the honeymoon. I'm pretty set on wanting to go to Mexico and stay at an all-inclusive. Now, I just need to! Anyone out there with tips on how to get freelance content writing jobs when you have no experience, please let me know!

quite whimsical

I've been using the name Successfully Underachieving since 2003. I was 18 years old! Back when MySpace was a thing (the thing). It is time to move on.

My internet handles have always been girly and cutesy, a good friend has said they sound like Bath & Body works fragrances. This is a) true and b) hilarious. 

So without further new name will be Quite Whimsical. I will still be for the time being, but I'm working on getting everything to "match".

Oh, so...I got my wedding dress! My experience ended up being pretty great. I tried on about 9 dresses in total and ended up LOVING the one I got. When I walked in the door I was able to "pick a card" and I got $500 off any dress, so I got an amazing deal. I love it when it all comes together like that.

I realized I can't post any pictures of it because this is a public blog and I stupidly want to follow the tradition where Kree doesn't see the dress until the wedding day.

In other news, I got a kitten! His name is Robin, he is about 8 weeks old and is really adorable. He's in that fun stage where he's curious about everything and is also klutzy so it is fun to watch him fall off of various objects in the house.

My cat Ozzy had a rough first 3 days or so, then he decided he would accept it that the cat was not leaving and came out from hiding (under the bed). We have had him a little over a week, and he now tolerates him as an annoying little brother. :) 

That is all for now. I'm too adhd from coffee at the moment to write anything of substance.
