Friday Favorites (24)

Friday, June 7, 2013

Happy weekend to you! I've had a crazy week--work was extra busy, I managed to stop by the venue where we'll be getting married to taste our wedding dinner, and I've reached out to almost all my bridesmaids (who are all over the place, from Charlottesville to New York to South Korea)!

I've been flip-flopping between feeling overwhelmed with all the things I want to get done early and feeling a little embarrassed about booking a photographer only two and a half weeks into our engagement. And also trying to talk about something other than the wedding, which, as you can see, is almost impossible for me right now.

Anyway, here are some links for your weekend! I hope you enjoy:

I mentioned that one of my best friends, Patrick, finally married his fiancĂ© Chad last week. Here are photos from their awesome photographer.

Loved this: The faces behind some Disney villains.

I am so glad that Kelly Ann is back to blogging. Everything she does and says is beautiful.

One of my favorite professors was featured in a Longwood News Release. You're so cool, Dr. McGee!

I almost always have the itch for a new watch, so I'm glad I found Watch Warehouse. I have my eye on this skinny little Michael Kors one.

This blew my mind. Science!

And this broke my heart. I think the BSA will be better off without these kind of people.

I love Danielle's blog and hearing about her awesome adventures with yeast-free eating.

I meant to post this last time, but my amazing friend Amanda started a blog. You can read her first post here.

I loved looking at these maps showing the ways we say different words around the country. So interesting!

Promoted content: The Hunt is a community that helps you find the items you covet but can't find--it's sort of an online shopper's dream come true.


I'm having dinner and drinks at my favorite place with two of my girlfriends tonight, and then I'm looking forward to a relaxing Saturday and a brunch date on Sunday in Charlottesville with two of my bridesmaids! What fun things do you have planned this weekend?


  1. Don't feel bad about getting so head over heels into your wedding preparations - I would do the same, it's so exciting! I'm going to my parents' house for a bit of a break from university and to enjoy the luxury of having a kitchen that's bigger than a closet! :)

  2. You should not feel embarrassed about booking the photographer so quickly--that's one of the most important things to check off the list! Also, in the few weeks after my engagement, I struggled to do anything else at work besides browse wedding magazines and blogs. Congrats and good luck with the planning!

  3. Yesss I love wedding photos. Congrats to Patrick and Chad! And yayy for your own wedding planning!

    Have an awesome weekend Megan!

  4. wait, you didn't tell me you found a place! also, girl, if you find something wedding-related that you like, SNAP IT UP NOW. we booked our venue in late April, three weeks before Jon officially proposed (I know...) and 16 months before our wedding, and it has since gone up 70% in price. SEVENTY PERCENT. Win for us! and I left finding a DJ and hairdresser till the last minute and had a serious scramble. no shame in getting it done early and then relaxing later on!

  5. Those links are so interesting! Especially the map. I don't blame you for only thinking about the wedding...I would, too!

    1. I think the map is so cool! Thanks!

  6. First of all, don't be embarrassed about booking stuff for your wedding! I did the same thing! And second, I loved the linguistic maps you posted...so interesting!

  7. Um, I actually met our photographers (and met with our photographers!) before I was even engaged, so don't even sweat it! In fact, photography is so important to me that our first "official" wedding-related appointment was to book the ladies who will capture our big day. Nothing at all wrong with that!
