16 Thoughts You Have As A Bridesmaid

"I feel stressed and I'm not even the one getting married."

16 Thoughts You Have As A Bridesmaid

This past weekend, I was a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding. It was so much fun to be part of her special day and everything that goes into a wedding. So many moments of stress, laughter, excitement and anticipation occur on the day of. Everything from hoping I don't accidentally trip walking down the aisle (you'll be happy to know that I didn't) to relaxing as someone did my hair and makeup, to really hoping my bridesmaid dress still fit after having not tried it on for a couple weeks (probably not the best idea on my part, but I was able to zip myself in).

1. I sure hope I don't trip and make a scene walking down the aisle.

2. Wow, these heels are so uncomfortable. Why did I think wearing these was a good idea?

3. OMG, did you see the groom's face when he saw her walking down the aisle? If my husband doesn't have a good reaction I'm turning around.

4. Ugh, I need to remember this. I totally am stealing this idea for my wedding.

5. What's that? Open bar? HECK YEAH, I'm not going to be able to feel how sore my feet are in no time.

6. When is dinner because I am ravenous.

7. Oooo, they're cutting the cake! I wonder if he'll shove a piece in her face or just feed her a little piece. It'd be so funny if he did shove it in her face... but if he gets it on her dress he is SO dead.

8. I haven't tried this dress on in weeks I sure hope it still fits.

9. I feel stressed and I'm not even the one getting married.

10. I hope they have a basket of comfy sandals for dancing because there is no way I can keep these heels on a second longer.

11. Boys are so lucky. They get to wear pants and a shirt and here we are in tight dresses, painful heels and a super uncomfortable bra.

12. This is great. I wish someone would come and do my hair and makeup for me every morning.

13. I really need to find another occasion to wear this dress at, because I look...

14. I can't wait to take so many cute pictures with everyone (and of course some bathroom mirror selfies)

15. I hope no one here is judgmental because. . .

16. What's that? More drinks? Yes, please.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
