Back in the Swing of Things

Thanks so much for all the positive feedback and suggestions about my less than stellar last week.  I love all the comments and messages I receive, so keep ‘em coming!

With all my planning and thinking about what went wrong this week, I felt ready to go this morning.  I took Daisy on a walk around the neighborhood but we kept it short because it’s pretty chilly and windy out here today.  I started with my workout for the day from Carrie which had me hopping from exercise to exercise.  Once I completed that workout and was sufficiently sweaty, I decided to give Courtney’s Stability Ball Circuit Workout a shot.  I’ve seen it before from her blog and another blogger that I follow, Julie from A Better Life with Burgers, used it today so I thought I’d give it a try. 

After three rounds, I was sweaty and my arms were feeling it!  I hopped on the treadmill for a light three mile jog and that was the end of my killer workout of a morning.

Since I appreciated the feedback that I got yesterday, I thought I would put a call out to you guys and see what you think of these headpieces for our wedding!  I’ve been looking on Etsy for ideas and here are a few of the top contenders so far.  Let me know what you think!

Feather Fascinator, Bridal Fascinator, Wedding Hair Flower, Bridal Headpiece - DANIELLE

Since I am on the fence about wearing a veil, I like this one because it has a little bit of netting that mimics a veil.

I really like how soft and simple this one is and I think that right now it’s at the top of my list!

The idea of multiple flowers hadn’t crossed my mind but when I saw these ones, I started to like the idea. 

We still have plenty of time but since my mom and I have been stepping up the planning and I picked up MY DRESS last Saturday (that was my exciting errand last weekend), I have been thinking more about the little details.  I just want something simple, pretty, and something that I won’t cringe at in a few years. 


Do you ever try workouts from blogs or Pinterest?  Feel free to share any great ones!

What are your thoughts on veils/headpieces? 

Any votes for the flowers above???


  1. I definitely vote for the first one. It’s so classy and beautiful!

  2. I agree – the first one is gorgeous!

  3. Yes, I have done some workouts that I’ve found on Pinterest… mostly the ones that have to do with TV shows/Movies. Like the Harry Potter one where you do certain exercises each time something happens in the movie.

    I definitely vote for #1! I am in the very beginning stages of my wedding planning, and I keep thinking about something like that rather than a traditional veil.

  4. Way to kick ass on your work out today! Love flower number one classy and modern. Don’t mind number two but its very young and plain looking. Really dislike number three. It’s s bad look unless your under the age of five. But no matter what you do u will look awesome because I rock and your beautiful so it a win win what ever you choose.

  5. Are you going to wear your hair up or down? Either way I really like #1, just has a lot more texture, but if you are going to have a complex updo, #2 would be a nice simple accent.

    • I’m leaning towards a messy low bun with maybe a braid thrown in there somewhere lol. Nothing too complex but this mane can’t be tamed so I can’t trust it to be down.

      • PS, after careful reconsideration (aka I actually clicked the link), #1 actually is a little sticky-outey. That might have something to do with the fact that the model has it just stuck to the side of her skull, I guess a normal person would probably tuck it in a little more?

  6. Hi! I’m a big fan of #2 as well… I think it would look great with your dress. BUT… I also like #3 and considering the amount of hair you have (not a bad thing at all), it could definitely work to have multiple flowers.
    I love these elements of wedding planning… it’s the fun stuff! Enjoy! and miss you!
