It's been a month.

Literally. It has been a whole month since our last post. Kyle has been working 50+ hours for the past four weeks and it's been pretty exhausting for him. We've been spending our evenings watching a lot of HGTV, Kardashians, drinking a lot of Pumpkin Spice, but mainly kicking back and relaxing.

Things are going generally well. We have a lot to do wedding wise in the next couple of months (including taking engagement photos!!!) but we are almost done conquering the guest list. Our invites are all done and ready for printing, most of the DIY projects have been selected and tested to make sure they wouldn't be total fails, a majority of the decoration thrifting is done. All that's left is some arrangement of details. The holidays will likely breeze by, leaving us with 5 months to finish up. I have to say, a longer engagement is actually very beneficial to planning! Despite a few ups and downs, this has been a relatively stress-less process (KNOCK ON WOOD x100000).

Tonight, Mama Allen made dinner and invited us all to a Scrabble battle. I baked some Pumpkin Pie Bars, (via Pinterest) which we paired with Starbucks, of course. The aroma of my new favorite candle made the night feel extra autumn-y.
Talk about an unlucky letter line-up -__- Vies was unimpressed by our skills..

There is no winner as of right now. We put the game on pause so we could all get a good night's sleep. To be continued.....
