“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”

- Herman Melville, Moby-Dick (via randomhouse)

Hey Ladies,

Can you believe it's October already??! I'm basically addicted to Pumpkin Spice Lattes, it's redic. I know what you're thinking: this is our annual group Halloween costume call to arms email, LOL. Wrong! I'm like 99% sure I'll end up doing a couples costume with Tyler. He’s perfect. He’s in advertising so we’ll probably co-host a Mad Men series finale party together. Anyway. We've been on two dates. How long should I wait before bringing up couples costumes?? I feel like it's this unspoken subtext between all our interactions now, and he's probably waiting for me to bring it up anyway, right? Anyway, that's neither here nor there BECAUSE...

STACY IS GETTING MARRIED AND WE SHOULD PLAN HER SHOWER!!!!!!! Technically, her mom and sister are planning her bridal shower, SNOOZE. I'm sure they're not even aware of the latest technology in the mason jar pinterest scene. But I think we should all plan her ~personal shower~ which is muuuuch more fun and all the rage in the 2014 DIY rustic chic wedding culture. LAUREN CONRAD HAD ONE!!!!

Basically, it's just like a bridal shower, but we get her fun gifts that are just for her since wedding planning is sooo stressful! Lingerie, spa days, hair extensions (??), stuff like that! Also, I really think Stacy needs an upper lip wax, but what's a nice, sensitive way to bring that up??! I'll google yahoo answers. I'll be putting together a google doc of what everyone should get for her! YAY I LOVE PLANNING!

~LOGISTICS~

Theme: Autumnal Romance! Something in the key of GOURDS

Food: Morgan, you'll be in charge of cute apps! I read that George and Amal had reallllly cute apps, and I think we should aim for that too!
