The Subtle Nerd

I relish my nerdiness.  I delight in my geekiness.  I also like modern style and fashion and tend toward a more Anthropologie-styled look – very bohemian, soft, and layered.  My home tends to be similar as well, with a strong industrial-modern flair (I like to think our Bexley bar from …

Now I present to you… Mr. and Mrs. Nerdy Geek.

I recently saw a post on Apartment Therapy about a couple’s video gamed themed wedding.  I loved all their little details, and it reminded me of all the little geeky details from our wedding.  As part of our first anniversary celebration, I’d love to share them. My husband gifted the …

Wedding dress up for grabs!

If anyone is in need of (or knows someone who needs!) a wedding dress, I’m selling mine!  My Claire Pettibone Clover was worn but once for just the period of the wedding and is in great condition!  You can check out the sale at Wedding Bee!  And a hilarious picture …

Treasures…

Pardon my unannounced absence on Monday; we’ve had family and friends visiting and I found myself very (and happily!) busy!  Everyone is now at or on their way home, and Nick and are are delighting in the chance to spend some time together and reflect on the wonderful weekend and …

Decorating the Party

Today is Nick’s and my engagement party!  We’re having a few immediate family and members of the wedding party for a fun BBQ out in our local park.  Here’s a few of the decorations I’ve prepped to make it festive!  Most of these will also be appearing at the wedding, …

I’m back!

You missed me SO MUCH, didn’t you?  And I know you’re just DYING to know, what did I do these last two weeks?  Well, here, I’ll show you: First, there was a lot of this (including stats.  I’ve never had to do stats before.  It is painful in the extreme).  …

They’re here!

The wedding shoes have arrived!  These are the Seychelles Women’s Aquamarine Pump (a decidedly unimaginative name for such a charming pair of shoes!), and I have to say, they are fantastic.  Super comfy, just the right height, and just really impressively crafted.  I’m going to be hard pressed to not …

Faux Mercury Glass Experience

I wanted to create some votive candle holders to double as décor and wedding favors, so I gathered my DiY wits about me and went after a beautiful vintage mercury glass look.  There are tons of tutorials out there on how to do this, and I read several, devising a …

This is all I have today.

Today, in addition to the biggest wedding of the century, was my final day of student teaching.  I’m taking a week off to sleep (kind of, because I will still be job-hunting), subbing for a few weeks, and then starting 6 credits of graduate research courses.  Then I’ll be planning …

The FREE Sign-In Book!

Yesterday Nick and I made a trip to Best Buy for a new router (I think we’re developing wireless for our entire zip code), and while waiting for Nick to finalize his purchase, I spied a little offer tag hanging there…  FREE 8×8 PHOTO BOOK.  Well, hell yes, I’ll take …
