Heart & Soul

With the change of the season official, and the thought that come next season I'll become a married lady, I've been spending a lot of time reflecting, contemplating, wondering, worrying, and planning out what the next few months will hold. I've always, always been a worrier, so trust me, that's nothing new, but reflecting on my life so far and picturing what our life as a married couple will be like come four months, six months, a year, two years, and on is definitely a new feeling. While I don't feel like much will change within my day-to-day to, just the fact that I'll be a soon be a Mrs. blows my mine - Mrs. Chelsea Goodson. What? My heart and soul are screaming that all is right, and for that I couldn't be more grateful.

Other than contemplating life, working on wedding plans, doing the daily work grind, and sipping on hot coffee (oh, its felt glorious the past few mornings and evenings - finally!), I've been watching a lot of movies and becoming re-obsessed with Pitch Picture. I even bought the PP movie soundtrack so I could sing along, non-acapella, on my way to work. The past few nights Scott and I have watched nothing but Pitch Perfect, but last night we switched it up and pulled out a favorite - Silver Linings Playbook. Scott and I both appreciate the movie's off sense of humor, and the over arching realness that many blockbusters miss. I've heard the book is even better than the movie, so it's on my must-read list, along with a handful of other books that I've yet to finish - I'm known for starting and stopping a book like nobody's business, but hopefully this fall I can kick my butt into gear and finish up those books I've been neglecting that are now in a pile next to my bed.

Scott printed a test run of our save the dates yesterday and I'm in love with them. All we need is envelopes and stamps and we should be good to go! We have two sets of sweet friends who are getting married (or having their reception) within the next two months, and I'm super excited to be able to witness their special days and celebrate their everlasting love together.

This weekend I'm hoping to stop by our first pumpkin patch of the year! We have a few favorites that we also make a point to stop at, but I'm hoping to check out a few new places this season. If you're local, I would love any and all suggestions you may have. I'm also on the hut for apple cider donuts! Anyone know where I can find these and/or request for them to be made (if you're reading this, Jessica from The Coffee Shop, hook a lady up!).

Outfit details:
Hat: Target
Sweater: Old Navy
Top: c/o Lulus
Ginnifer booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes

I have a feeling today is going to be a pretty busy day, but I have the Pitch Perfect soundtrack playing in my ears and an iced coffee on my desk - I'm set for the day! 

What movies have you been into lately? Do you have any favorite fall treats (bonus if they're local and I can get my hands on them!).

  1. Great post, Chelsea! As a worrier myself, I can completely understand where you're coming from - even the happiest future events can cause a little anxiety. I wholeheartedly recommend the book version of Silver Linings Playbook & have been dying to watch Pitch Perfect (can't believe I haven't seen it yet).
