Too Many Choices

I’m starting to feel a lot like I did when I was wedding planning. Letterpress? Etsy? DIY? Fondant? Buttercream? Pie? Vintage? Modern? Strapless? Open bar? Beer and Wine? There is such a thing as too many goddamn choices.

I reminisced a little tonight with a Nashvillian about the wedding between me and The Candyman.It was fun to talk to someone about my old town, someone who was familiar with our church and our reception venue.

We talked about vendors and why I absolutely adored my photographer and the bakery who made our scrumptious cakes.

After the lovely trip down memory lane, I started to get that little tingle of anxiety; the anxiety that comes from making the right decision, decisions that seem impossible to make. At some point, you just gotta choose and make it work.

I’m kind of that way with our house right now. There are so many decisions to make and too many choices. Sometimes there aren’t enough choices, but most times there are too many.

Case and point? Mirror frames. I have a bathroom mirror that is 77-7/8” long and 24 “ high. To get it framed as one would a picture would be psychotically expensive. So, I found this website called Mirror Mates. It’s a much cheaper and easier alternative to framing a mirror than actually framing it.

I ordered some samples and when they arrived, I realized they were a local company! I wanted more samples so swung by to pick them up. More samples = more choices. Probably not a good thing at this point.

I did find out that Mirror Mates is having a Black Monday sale – 25% off! So if you need a custom bathroom mirror, then hop to.

Me? I’m still trying to figure out what the hell I’m going to do.

That’s right. NINE different frame options. Seven different shapes and six different color options. The Candyman narrowed it down to two in less than thirty seconds. Me? I’m still trying to figure it out.

Not surprising. I only tried on over 100 wedding dresses.

*Sigh*

P.S. Don't forget that I'm going to have a BLACK FRIDAY sale at my Etsy shop!
