Happy Friday Love Bugs!
Another week has come and gone. It is crazy to me how fast time has been going by recently. Maybe it is because I have so much going on right now and that I feel like I can’t breath (lol). Lets just say I am really looking forward to the wedding being over.
I have loved planning my dream wedding and my oh my, have I loved being engaged…. but ya’ll, I am so ready to be married it is not even funny. I’m just ready to have our life back and not feel so stressed out all of the time. I’ll probably regret saying this the day after our wedding and I’ll most likely be crying my eyes out that it is over lol…but as of today, I am ready.
Yesterday leaves us one month out and I can feel myself getting more and more anxious by the day.
If I had to be honest though, and ya’ll don’t judge me for this, as excited as I am, and as ready as I am, I have been having a really hard time thinking about giving up my last name. Like as I sit here typing this, thinking about the fact that I am only going to be Lauren Smith for one more month brings tears to my eyes. This has nothing and I mean nothing to do with my love for Colton. I mean, I knew I was going to marry him after only a few months of dating him. He is without a doubt the love of my life and I have only ever dreamed about marrying him for the last 5 years, but I have never really thought about what it would be like to give up my name. I mean I know that factor was apart of the package, but I have just never really thought about it? I don’t know how to explain it.
& I know that I could hyphenate my name and what not, but I also know that it means the world to him for me to take his name.
It’s just….. it’s my identity…..
My married and engaged girls out there, did any of you guys feel this way?? Am I crazy?? I have to know lol. Help me find peace with this!
Anways, this weekend I will be having both of my bridal showers – which I am so pumped for!!! The shower on Saturday is being thrown by my bridesmaids (it’s going to be so much fun – think lots of rose´) and the shower on Sunday is a couples shower. Which will also be so fun and be completely different from Saturday because Colton will be there!
This fall floral wrap dress I wore on Friday of NYFW to the Galtiscopio Show and Reward Style HQ. It was by far one of my most favorite (if not my favorite) outfit I wore while in New York. I had originally ordered this dress, but because of the hurricane, my dress didn’t come in time. So right before heading out, I picked up this dress and my goodness did I get lucky! This dress is SO flattering, beautiful and comfortable. I seriously feel like the fashion Gods were looking down on me as I scrambled for an outfit lol.
Have a great weekend!
