Things I Love Thursday | Baby Fever

I got a FEVER! And the only prescription…is little squish.

Yep, I have the baby fever. I am that creep making kissy faces at your bebeh in public places, making little squeals of glee when it smiles back at me.

Things I Love Thursday - Baby Fever

Papa Bear and I have been working on the whole baby thing for a couple of months, but I just recently got insurance (yay!), and headed off to the doc for some blood work. Unfortunately, I’m a little short on certain antibodies, so I need to get a couple of vaccinations, which mean we’re going to have to wait three months before we get back to it.

Boo for that. But at the same time, for every month I’m not pregnant, it’s another month closer to Papa Bear being done with school and us being back to two incomes. That’s not the worst thing in the world. And hey, we were planning on taking next month off anyway, because I have married two Christmas babies, and if I can avoid another poor kid hearing the “Christmas and birthday present” line, that’s just fine with me.

But still, I am absolutely gooshing out over all things kid and baby lately. With that in mind, let’s get to this week’s Things I Love Thursday!

15 of the Best Wedding Blogs on the Internet

Wedding blogs, man. There are just so damn many of them! Wedding planning is complicated enough without wading through the sea of chiffon to find the resources and more importantly style you’re craving.

Well worry not, because I did it for you. Culled from the 100+ wedding blogs (I’m talking just wedding-dedicated blogs here) in my Bloglovin’ feed, I give you the details behind 15 of the best wedding blogs on the internet.

I’m not saying there aren’t scores of other great wedding blogs out there, but if they are out there, chances are I know of them – these the blogs made this list because they know who they are and what they do inside and out, and they do it incredibly well. I hope you love them as much as I do.

Modern Micro Moon-Drenched Wedding

Holy hell there are only four months left before our wedding. When time gets down to the wire like this and more and more elements of the wedding are finalized, it can be incredibly helpful to lay all of said elements out in one place.

Some parts of the wedding, like the beautiful crystal ocean pendant and the Lily Pool ceremony venue were easy to decide on. Other parts, like what we are all going to wear, left us scratching our heads.

Full Moon Wedding Wellers Wedding

I finally got my dress figured out thanks to an industrious and risk-taking bridal consultant at David’s Bridal, but unfortunately, we have not had the same luck for the dude half of this couple.

Let’s wade through some wedding planning muck and see if we can get a wedding to come together. Don’t worry, it’s pretty muck, and there will be a full moon and mind-blowing food.

On Bridesmaid Diets – WTF?

There are such things in this world as movies called 27 Dresses.

There are women, and we all know some, that seem to be standing up in weddings every other week.

I, on the other hand, have never purchased a bridesmaid’s dress.

Bridesmaids Movie

Bridesmaids movie. Fucking love.

This is because I have never been a bridesmaid.

But this summer, I get to jump into the bridesmaid fray as the green in my little sister’s rainbow wedding. When Ms. purple sarcastically called the bride a bridezilla (because she so freaking low-key about wedding planning), she squeakily defended herself by saying she knows of a bride that gave her girls “bridesmaid diets.”

WTF?
