Change is A-Brewin’: Resnarkable

by lizzie & isaiah on March 26, 2012 · 7 comments

I have had a weird time with this blog. It’s been pretty clear. Some of you amazingly, fantastical, intelligent ladies have helped me figure out a direction for the future.

Thank you.

I love writing. I didn’t want to stop blogging. I just wanted to stop blogging about our wedding.

Honestly, if you’re still considering blogging about your personal wedding, really give it some thought. If you don’t want to be a wedding blogger and you just want to write about something … writing about your wedding, your relationship and your friendships is very taxing.

If you’re a serial over-analyzer like me … you will wind up examining your relationship for content fodder and, eventually, something about that dulls the beauty of just enjoying moments together and living in general.

So, that being said – I have been working on a project called Resnarkable for a while. I’m really pumped about it.

I want to write about politics, careers, culture and life. 

If you want to join me, that would be killer.

If not, I completely understand. Sometimes our interests change, you know?

I wanted a fresh start. I didn’t want to move all of our 466 posts with us. I don’t want to forward the domain because you guys have some awesome guest posts up in this piece.

So I will leave this blog intact until the domain expires in November.

If you have guest posts here, feel free to take screenshots, save whatever you would like to!

Also – our Twitter account @luvyourway has been dead for a while. It’s pretty obvious that I can only keep up with one personal account daily (social media is what I do for a living). So if you want to follow along, you can catch up with me @lizonomics.

 

So whadya think? Exciting? Horseshit?

You guys are awesome. Thank you so much for three years of awesome community. This blog got me through some weirdly confusing times that seem to come along with planning a wedding.

Here’s some bloggers you should follow to continue that conversation:

So sorry if I forgot anyone!

Anyway, longest not-goodbye ever.

Quit screwin’ around and head over to Resnarkable.

Lindsay Lohan hosts SNL

You guys.

These SNL skits from Lindsay Lohan’s recent special had me cracking up.

Enjoy.

I’m aware that homegirl got some Rose McGowan-style plastic surgery done. But relax. She’s back on track, trying to figure some shit out … maybe we could just ease up on her lip-job.

Whatya think?

When things get weird, or, What the What?

by lizzie & isaiah on March 4, 2012 · 3 comments

I went to an HR conference last weekend. I know, and I loved it.

That’s weird.

I can’t stay out past midnight without hiding yawns in my elbow and playing it off like I was doing a pit-check.

That’s weird.

Things have been weird lately. I love my job. Isaiah’s busy with school. We’re fighting to find time together. I have a cousin who two last year and just turned 15. I realize those things don’t sound so weird alone, but it kind of feels like our lives have taken a sharp turn to Adultville and I don’t remember the drive.

So things are strange.

But since things have been weird, we have been trying to embrace it and make things, uh, weirder.

New hobbies, new habits, and we’re, like, going out … like normal 20-somethings.

Weird.

Work and Weddings

by lizzie & isaiah on February 28, 2012 · 17 comments

Isaiah and I got engaged when I was a junior in college.

We had a flobbity jillion reasons to put wedding plans on hold immediately and wait for a couple of years: health insurance, waiting for careers, etc.

One of the reasons we tried to pretend was real was time. At the time, in college, I thought I was the busiest I could ever get. It’s ridiculous now that I look back and I realize how much free time I had. The reality? Everything has gotten exponentially complicated.

I can’t seem to get any of the details together in reality. We haven’t sent out Sa-the-Das yet. I haven’t ordered a dress yet. We’re ridiculously behind. I keep planning times to plan and they’re not working out.

I love my job. I think about my job and how I can do it better most nights and weekends. Isaiah and I also do anywhere between 10 and 30 hours of contract work per week and I have to sleep, prepare food, take care of animals, enjoy time with Isaiah, etc.

How in holy hell do you plan a wedding and work and have animals and freelance? What the EFF.

Think for Yourself, You Fucking Hipster

February 13, 2012

I went through this phase once. I wouldn’t listen to bands other people listened to. Any brand name or new clothing I had stuck out that year in my closet. I was a vegetarian. I dreamed day and night of living in Portland. I was undeniably hipster and called out on it for the majority [...]

Instagramination: Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo

February 8, 2012

You guys. We went to a rodeo. We are so not Fort Worthians and going to a rodeo and saying “ya’ll” were the only things separating ourselves from being Texans. Now there’s only “ya’ll” protecting us from full integration. Help. I am going to share some photos from our Instagram account over the next week while I’m [...]

Instagramination: Our First Vacation

February 7, 2012

We took our very first vacation recently. We went to New Braunfels, Texas, which is only about four hours away and sits halfway between San Antonio and Austin. New Braunfels was founded by a German prince, Carl of Solms-Braunfels and has retained a bit of its German charm. Although some of it has been commercialized, [...]

Instagramination: Isaiah and Vinny

February 6, 2012

Vinny has started marking us as his by jumping on our laps when Abby gets too much attention. It’s fucking cute, yo. I am going to share some photos from our Instagram account while I’m cheeks-deep in wedding details, writing projects and cleaning our place. Cool? Cool.

why we probably won’t use the blog community to find vendors for our wedding

February 4, 2012

I have more than 700 blogs I read every day. Some I skim just for headlines before I read – like my advertising or HR/career daily reads. I read every post of about 200 blogs a day because I love them. I have always been a big fan Shared Human Experience’s. I believe in the power [...]
