What's More Exciting?

What's more exciting than planning a wedding? Planning a life together!

For a year and a half, Mr. N and I have been planning our dream wedding. I have been oohing and ahhing over wedding dresses, venues, photography blogs, wedding blogs, all things nautical, cakes, stationery, diy projects, decor, and everything that goes into planning a wedding. I didn't think anything could be more fun.

Then, about a quarter through our engagement, Mr. N and I started to look for a house. We looked for almost a year before finding our dream home. To be honest it was exhausting and I much prefered planning the wedding, until in fact we found the dream home. Now my mind has shifted from wedding plans to life plans.*
Suddenly the registry is one of my favorite parts of planning!

Did you simultaneously go through two exciting life events at once? A baby, graduating school, a new apartment, new home, etc.???

*Don't worry, there are still plenty of wedding plans and projects to come...it may just be at a slower pace!

We just bought a house last month, but I'm not living there yet. I'll be graduating, moving, and getting married all within a month of each other! Stressful, but so exciting!

Yay! More pictures please!!!
And no, we took everything one step at a time - I don't think I could've done it all at once!

Very exciting! We are house hunting now and it's definitely been stressful. We are putting another offer one one today... hoping it's the one. I have already registered for some things and you're right... it is so much more fun when you can envision the stuff in your new place and using it as husband and wife :)

Congratulations!!! I agree- planning the Life is even more fun than planning the wedding. We got engaged October. Bought a house and moved in together in November. Rob is also finishing his first year of Residency this June. Busy Busy but so much fun! I *loved* setting up our registry too!
