Wedding Wednesday: Progress Report

Let’s be real, this post is mostly for me.  We’ve made SO MUCH progress planning out big day, (April 7, 2018!) but there are so many details to keep track of!  I like to be able to check the boxes, so it’s interesting to me to take inventory of where we are in the process.  I warn you: I’m the kind of person who likes to get everything done early, so don’t feel like you need to go by my timelines!

Nintendo, Rick Mobile, & Bridal Squad

If you liked yesterday’s post, you’re in luck!  You can watch us shop the Nintendo x Uniqlo collection in real life!  Also, we see the Rick Mobile (from Rick & Morty) and I get my bridal squad together for something exciting…

Uniqlo x Nintendo

I’m having trouble finding the words for how perfect these Nintendo tees for Uniqlo are.  I mean, one of my favorite stores plus my absolute favorite game company… could anything be more made for me?

I have to give the credit to my fiancé for alerting me to this one.  Between the two of us, we could’ve easily bought this whole collection.  Here are my favorites!

Top Row: Pikachu Print (women); Boo print (women); Donkey Kong print (men), Animal Crossing print (kids)

Middle Row: Pikachu (men), Kirby (kids), Donkey Kong (men), Mario & Luigi pipe pocket (men)

Bottom Row: Super Mario Star (men), Pokéballs (kids), Legend of Zelda (men & women), There’s One Left Pikachu (men)

All the best tees are really the kids one, but I can try my luck at fitting in men, women, and kids!  To see them all, check out the Uniqlo site.  To see what we picked out, check out the vlog coming up tomorrow!

Which are your favorites?!

 

South Shore Adventures

I’m so glad I decided to split last weekend up into two vlogs!  This one mostly focuses on Monday– we took the day off to scout the location for our engagement photos and to meet our florist!  The weather was awful, but we’re so happy with what we’ve chosen and the progress we’ve made!  See for yourself:

Hello Kitty Cafe Truck

I’ve decided to break last weekend’s vlog into two– I’m fond of quicker videos these days!  You’ll have to be on the lookout for part two tomorrow!  Today’s video (and post) is all about the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck!

What I Watch – à La Carte

IMG_5449

I’ve recently cut ties with my cable provider.  We switched to a cheaper, faster internet provider and are exploring the world of à la carte TV!  It’s forced me to really take inventory of what channels I watch.  Here’s my list:

BBC America

It’s at the forefront of my mind that Orphan Black’s final season is coming!  I know I can’t live without seeing this show.  Also, is Broadchurch’s new season going to come to America?  I need that too.  Thankfully, BBC America was offered by both Sling Orange ($20/month) and Playstation Vue ($30/month), our two top options.

Bravo

Watching Top Chef live is of utmost importance to me.  There’s not a show out there that I like recapping more than Top Chef!  I feel like it’s imperative that I have access to this show and this channel… for important reality TV reasons…  We’d have had to bump up to Sling Blue ($5 more per month) to get Bravo, but it’s included in Playstation Vue!

Cartoon Network

We are the Crystal Gems!  Steven Universe is my favorite thing currently on TV.  I bought seasons on Amazon just to stay current.  It’s no surprise that we started our Playstation Vue 7-day free trial the day the new episode premiered.  Cartoon Network is also available on Sling Orange.

HBO

Since Girls is over, we are currently living without HBO.  When Game of Thrones comes back, we will not be living without HBO.  Thankfully, HBO Now is a thing so we can probably just do that independently of any package we have.

MTV

This one I had to sacrifice.  I may have a Catfish addiction and I might enjoy a guilty pleasure or two on this channel (ahem Teen Mom OG), but MTV was not available on Playstation Vue.  We could add MTV for an additional $5 to any Sling package, but…

TLC

Ugh, I can’t help it.  I watch so much TLC it’s pathetic.  I love Say Yes to the Dress which is thankfully always on.  I guess this whole channel is my guilty pleasure.  At the end of the day, I couldn’t live without this channel and it was only available on Playstation Vue, not in any Sling package.

So we’re testing out Playstation Vue!  It’s more expensive than the Sling options, but I wasn’t willing to compromise on TLC.  The best part is, we can cancel at any time if we decide to test something else out!  I guess the actual best part is that there’s a Roku app– we can stream it on both the PS4 in the living room and the Roku in the bedroom, so for the first time ever, we have cable in both rooms!

Who else has made the switch to à la carte TV?
