Friday's Letters

I loooooooove Friday's Letters.

And this will be my last Friday's Letters before I am married.

I'm working on a smooshy mooshy "I'm 24 hours away from marrying the love of my life" post.

Shit. I tear up just writing about writing that.

I can't wait to have my brain back. I'm an emotional wreck. I cried at Charming Charlie's yesterday when the girl asked if there was a special occasion that I was buying the hair piece for and I told her I was getting married.

I think everyone is going to miss the emotional me. They have all been excited that Robot Kayleigh is no more.

Trust me. I'm a hot mess. I just don't usually admit show it. But, alas I've ruined my street cred enough. Time to get my swaggah back. Holler.

Anyway... Ashley over at Adventures of Newlyweds isn't doing the link-up this week since she will be off gallivanting in Cali, but I'm gonna give her credit where it is due and do Friday's Letters anyway.

Dear Marizzle, seriously, you have done it again. You are a mother fluffing genius and I am so happy that I have you to make my hair look the bomb.com. It's redic. Lurve it. Can't wait to see how amazing my hair looks on my wedding day. Oh... and also so happy you're my friend too. But I love you even more because you do my hair... hehehehe.

Dear Big A, you're cute.

Dear Mother Nature, seriously? I thought we were friends. Don't make me back hand you.

Dear Last Minute Things that I Need to Do, be done will you. Because, I'm over it. I'm done.

Dear Work, I don't want to do you anymore. But I would still like to be paid. Please and thank you.

Dear Woman at Work Who Has Been Hacking Up a Lung for the Past Week and Looks Like Shit, feel free to work from home. None of us want you here. And if I catch your plague and am sick for my wedding, I will cut you.

Dear Wedding Planning, why do you bring out the want/need for me to cut people? Should I be concerned or just roll with it? Roll with it? OK.

Dear Hair, stop being so pretty. I almost walked into a file cabinet because I was looking at you in the reflection of a window. How the hell am I supposed to explain THAT to people? Just tone down the sexy and I promise I will stroke you later.

Well that just came out dirtier than I intended. (That's what she said?)

Dear Long Weekend, I love you sooooooo much, let's never be apart.

Dear Martha's Vineyard, 16 days and my husband and I will be there. Oh how I have missed you. Try not to be too cold. I heart you and I never want to leave.

That's all we have for this week. I think I should go before I threaten violence on anyone else. The less evidence the better.

Oh... and I KNOW I have talked about those annoying people who stand right near my desk and talk incredibly loudly to each other and it is annoying as fuck? Yeah... they just got yelled at by the President. He told them that 8:15 in the morning is too early to be that annoying and that they were pissing him off. I love that man.

Alright, holler for your dollar Bitches! Have a fab weekend and I'll catch you on the flip side. For WEDDING WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday Randoms

OK people... this is not a drill... we have officially gone into "single digit territory"!

9 mother effing days.

Cue the freaking out now.

I've been doing pretty good keeping chill. I mean, for the most part.

I had a minor freak out last night when I noticed that my daily walks had created a not so awesome tan line. Yeah, no one wants a farmer's tan in their STRAPLESS wedding dress.

Big A of course didn't get it at all. He "couldn't even see it".

Men... sometimes I think I need a friend living with me too. Or at least an effeminate gay male friend.

Either way. Someone who will understand tan lines gone astray. 

I'm pretty sure that I will be tanning after work today. And most days... until the wedding. Which is funny because I just decided yesterday that I didn't need tanning. I have a light glow and next to the white dress I look particularly bronzed.

I swear there is some higher power somewhere that is dedicated to throwing a wrench in the works for me. Seriously, once I think I have my shit together, BAM take that BITCH! How about some messed up tan lines for your special day!

OK... I know I am going  a bit overboard with the tan lines... maybe I'm not doing so well. I HAVE been drinking more wine lately though, that's been helping.

Last night Big A and I had a particularly lovely date night. I grilled burgers, we hung out, even Mr. Fresh got a little play time in there too.

I forced Big A to finally sign the thank you cards that I had JUST finished for the shower (I needed more and since they were designed for me, it took time to make more). So thankfully I will have those out today and a little breather before we have to write more. (And I use "we" loosely, we all know I write them and Big A signs his name. He has a tough life)

I'm looking forward to the weekend. Relaxing. Enjoying myself. It will be nice to have a 3 day weekend, work two days (one of them we have this CRAZY 100 person meeting because apparently it is a good idea to throw that at me the week before I get married) and then have 4 days off.

Big A and I are going back to work the week following the wedding and leaving for our honeymoon part 1 (I say part 1 because we plan on actually FLYING somewhere in the early Spring. We couldn't afford to do so now and are COMPLETELY blessed that we have a place on Martha's Vineyard to go to, but I keep telling him that NOW is the time to take this trip somewhere or else we will never do it. So maybe Florida or something. Who knows!). We wanted as much time as possible and we didn't want to have to rush around the next day. It will suck going back to work, but with a week's vacation as an incentive, it will be OK.

And that's what we have going on for now. The semi calm before the storm. I am getting my hair did by the fabulous Marizzle tonight who is going to make me look wedding day ready. Then it is one more day until the weekend.

Of course, if the 90 degree weather would switch from Friday to preferably Sunday that would be fabulous.


And of course, we can officially stalk the weather for the wedding weekend. Looks good to me. Everyone keep their fingers crossed that it keeps to this. I like this forecast. I would like it a little better if it was 0% rain for Saturday, but I'll take this. Well done Mother Nature. Keep up the good work.


And that's all the random ramblings that I have for you today. Please excuse the lack of actual content for the next week or so. We all know that it is a surprise that I am still capable of dressing myself in the morning these days, so let's take what we can get. Shall we?

Smooches!

So What! Wednesday

It's time for another So What! Wednesday!

Aww... only one more So What! Wednesday before I'm married!

Yes... it will be like this for the next 10 days and YES it IS all about me. Heh.

You know the deal. I'm linking up with my girl Shannon for SWW!

This week I am saying So What! if...

* The Slimfast Shake dealio I'm on right now makes me angrily hungry by the time dinner time comes around. It's for a good reason... my own vanity about my wedding day. They should have a warning on the side: A shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch and a sensible dinner. Warning: may cause you to want to trip small children and steal their Mac & Cheese. Yep... it gets that bad. I haven't tripped anyone though... yet!

* I have been having muffed up dreams lately that have no effected my waking life. Last night (half asleep) I told Big A that I had come up with some great idea and was thankful that we had a lawyer friend to help us out if we got into a bind. And then realized that this "lawyer friend" was Alec Baldwin who is neither a lawyer or my friend... and I was obviously coming out of a dream. (He was a lawyer in a movie I watched the other day... that's the only explanation that I can come up with.)
Sidenote: we were friends in my dream over our love for Border Collies. Which was ALSO from the movie. Ug.

* I asked some guy at work why he was a "manager" if he didn't manage any people? And then asked him if it was because they didn't trust him to manage any people. I thought I was being funny... but apparently from his lack of response... he didn't. Why can't people have a sense of humor?

* My body is SO out of shape from lack of working out that my 2 mile WALK on Monday and Tuesday has left me hobbling like a bow-legged elderly woman. In my defense, I think I'm actually having trouble with my hip, but it could just be because of my sloth lifestyle the past month.

* I get seriously annoyed when co-workers tell other people (i.e. strangers to me) about MY wedding and then expect me to stop everything that I am doing to talk about it. A) it's MY thing, if I don't want to talk about it with someone then I won't. Please don't make ME be the asshole because I blow them off. B) It's MY THING! I don't feel the need to share parts of my life with people I don't know. If I don't mention something, then don't bring it up. C) I'm blogging working. I'm busy.

* It is literally taking every fiber of my being NOT to look at what Big A had engraved on my ring. I have both rings, which probably isn't the best idea, but I would rather ME be tempted to look than him forgetting them. I suck at surprises. I haven't looked though and it has been 12 whole hours. Let's forget that 10 of those I was either sleeping or not home...

* I am stalking the weather for this weekend and next. For obvious reasons. I am seriously going to be one irate son of a bitch if it rains. Or is cold. Seriously Mother Nature, I will hunt you down like the beast that you are and will choke you. That's right. I ain't afraid to choke a bitch over bad weather. Figure it out.

* I felt like a whole new woman after a long hot shower and a glass of wine last night. I am slightly concerned that my mood was somewhat reliant on the alcohol, but I figure as long as it isn't crystal meth then it can always be worse. Right?

* I e-mailed aforementioned co-worker and asked him why he didn't think I was funny. And it turns out he just didn't see the e-mail. All is right in the world. I am STILL hysterical.

Alright lovies, it's time for me to hit the 'ole dusty trail. Seeing as how I spent the first half an hour I was at work talking with my boss, then the rest of the time belittling co-workers and blogging... I should probably actually PRETEND that I'm working on something important.

We're half-way through the week (hump day hi-yo) and it's almost the long weekend. I've got some fun posts coming up, including an entire week of some ridiculously fabulous guest bloggers while I am away on my honeymoon. I can hardly contain my excitement!

Bachelorette Weekend Recap

Oh hey!

Look who finally learned how to upload pictures and get her act together?

That would be moi.

I would love to say that I postponed writing this post because I wanted to build the suspense for some GREAT stories.

But alas, I have nothing. Other than the fact that we drank FAR too much and may or may not have name people's special body parts and then considered them part of our group for the rest of the weekend.

Yeah... here are some pictures:

First day arriving on the scene. Checking out the decor. One of my bridesmaids made those coozies. They said, "I survived Kayleigh's Bachelorette!" and had a skull and the info on them. They were perfect. Loved them. Coupled with my coozie that said, "My name is: The Bride Bitches!!!" it was perfect. Also notice the pin the ding-a-ling on the cowboy (that we never played) and my new friend the sea gull.
On Day 1, I showed up with some fabulous ladies around 11:30 AM. J$ and N had been there since the night before to set up. We immediately got our drink on and headed to the beach. It was awesome, until I was instructed that I should get out of the water and get something to eat. Totally not my fault that the life guards didn't care about our obvious public drinking.

We woke up on Saturday morning and it was cold and rainy. The forecast said it would happen, but no one wanted to believe it. And since it showed NO sign of letting up, we decided to head out to lunch. And continue drinking.
And made the 12 year old waiter take our picture...We had such a great time and chatted away. It was apparent that they stuck us (10) girls in the back room on purpose. The joke was on them when they got too busy and had to put people back there with us. I'm pretty sure some guy wanted to start the slow clap when we were leaving. They were NOT fans of us. Can't imagine why?

After that we went to a vineyard and did a little wine tasting. It was so much fun. I'm pretty sure that people hated us. Almost as much as they hated us at the restaurant.

Jackums and I had to go and do our own photoshoot for a minute! And point to our free wine glasses, SCORE!

After that, we went back to the house and hung out for awhile. AKA... continued drinking. Good plan. Then we all got gussied up and headed out to dinner.
Seriously, dinner was fabulous. I got this cheesy lobster casserole thing. It was to die for. I thought I might call the wedding off and marry my dinner. No big deal.

Of course, by this point all of my drinking had caught up with me and I was exhausted, my head was pounding, and I had about as much patience as a two year old. So we decided that since we were all a bit tired too, and it couldn't hurt to save some cash, we headed back to the house instead of going out.

Lame. I know. I regret it a little bit. I wish that we had gone out to a club somewhere and had this wild time, but I know I wouldn't have been able to handle it. I hit migraine status fast and that was my night.

I'm getting old.

Sunday we woke up. Cleaned up. Packed the car and headed out to lunch before we drove back home. It was seriously a fabulous weekend and I wouldn't change anything for the world. (Well... maybe the rain and the migraine...)

Special thanks to J$ and N who headed to the house early to set everything up and prepare all of the food. You guys are awesome!!! Also, thanks to N's dad for giving us his house for the weekend (we made sure to leave it extra clean when we left). And thanks to my fabulous bridesmaids and friends for coming. It was an absolute blast.

Honestly, with 10 girls in 1 house, I thought that there would be SOME sort of drama. But honestly, there was NONE. Everyone got along and those who weren't really close in the beginning were friends by the end. It also helped that we had 3 bathrooms and adequate sleeping space!

So my friends, THAT was my Bachelorette. I might post the pictures from our fashion photo shoot that we took before we went out. Some are a bit ris-kay so I'm going to need to sort through them first. We got a bit... silly.

Smooches lovers! I'll be back tomorrow for So What! Wednesday!!! (Joanne can you hardly contain your excitement? I know you LOVE SWW! haha)

Weekend Recap and Wedding WOAH!

This weekend was a good one. I spent it watching the football game, relaxing by the pool, and hanging out with my favorite guy. Oh and Big A was there too.

Hahaha I am sooooo funny.

Anyway, it was a nice weekend. I got a couple errands done and out of the way and then was able to spend the rest of the weekend hanging out.

Most everything is done on my to-do list. Just a couple more things to go.

With 12 more days, we are getting down to the wire.

Yes, I said 12...eek!

1.Finalize the guest count. Call all outstanding RSVP's.
2.Do the Seating Chart.

3.Find & print seating cards. Need to alphabetized by last name.
4.Decide if there will be place card holders or not. There will not.
5.Find pictures for table names. Get materials. Make signs.
6.Buy the stones for the centerpieces.

7.Buy materials for the programs, print, & put together.

8.Decide on whether or not we want to bother with menus. I had them all designed and then decided I didn't feel like doing it! Haha!
9.Make cake appointment.
10.Pick out cake. Decide on design. Bring topper to meeting.  Done. Just need to drop off the cake topper this week.
11.Decide on song list. (Ceremony, Entrance, First Dance, etc.) Working on selecting ceremony music. Finalized Mother/Son song, just need the name from Big A. And e-mail the DJ.
12.Pick out parent presents. Figured out what I want to do.
13.Get marriage license.
14.Decide on old, new, borrowed, and blue. Still...no clue. I suck.
15.Break in wedding shoes. Forgot... again... I suck.

16.Buy batteries for centerpieces. Planning on going on Wednesday.
17.Make LOVE sign (which would be easier if I could actually remember what the hell it was or where I found it) Forget it!
18.Buy baskets for bathrooms and supplies. Put together.
19.Put together Bridesmaids gifts. All put together. Bought boxes. Just need to wrap.

20.Wrap Groomsmen gifts. Need to go to the Christmas Tree Shop and get bags or something.
21.Come up with "day of" timeline. E-mail to Wedding Party. Slacking...
22.Send out invitations for rehearsal dinner. Can't wait to show you what they look like! Post coming soon!
23.Finish writing "thank you " notes from the shower. Wrote all the ones I could. Need to get more (should have done it when I was at Target yesterday...dummy!) We keep getting gifts though so, I now have MORE to write than I thought. Totally OK with that though. Seriously, people are SO generous!

24.Finalize the rooms for the night before and night of the wedding. Done the night before. Night of is set, just need to get them a credit card number.
25.Get final payments together. Done. Just need to drop of payment to florist on Friday and the JP on the 7th.

26.Have final meetings with vendors (florist, photographer, DJ, etc.) 

27.Buy Photobooth favors. Put together.
28.Figure out picture cards. I forgot that our photographer has a new option that she is trying out and we get it for FREE. She will have cards made from our Engagement pictures that will tell people where to go and they can upload all of the pictures they take. Yay!

29.Pick up Dress.

30.Go away for Bachelorette weekend!

31.Make sign for Memory Table.

32.E-mail picture to DJ.

33. Bring Big A's watch to get fixed. Brought it in. It needs a new band. Big A needs to go in this week to pick it out.  
34. Pick picture for picture cards.
35. Pick up rings from being engraved. Big A's is ready. Mine still needs to come back. I'm DYING to find out what he wrote. We aren't supposed to look until after the ceremony. Haha!

That's about it. We are doing pretty damn good. I need to make a list of what to pack for the wedding so I don't forget anything. I need to make sure I make it soon so that I can check it 37,000 times. I'm nervous about forgetting the rings and the marriage license.

Then again... we live 20 minute away, so it really wouldn't be THAT big of a deal if we realized in enough time. It will be fine... I'm sure. I'm just a control freak. Shocking.

I must say that the nerves are definitely starting to set in. It's a lot of people. And a lot of working pieces that could go wrong. The nightmares are almost nightly. And I've been late to work every day since forever because of sleeping issues. Also, my stomach officially hates me. I don't know if people know that people who have stomach issues initially... have it worse when they are stressed. Fun. I've been doubling up on my meds and watching what I eat/drink (minus the 3/4 lb of mozzarella that I shoved in my face yesterday).

Other than that... it is just time for the waiting game. We have a bunch of fun stuff going on this week/weekend so it should be good. I want to go tanning a couple times, I have a hair appointment on Thursday (can't wait to color it, seriously these roots are redic!), and then some awesome Labor Day weekend plans.

Then, it's a 3 day weekend, I work Tuesday and Wednesday and then I'm off until the Wedding.

Holy shit.

That's all for now lovers. I finally uploaded the pics from the Bachelorette party. Look for that post tomorrow. Promise!

Smooches!

Oh, and if you want to hear more wedding stuff, head on over to Becky's blog over at From Mrs to Mama. She is hosting a tell-all link-up and this week is all about weddings. I'm DYING to do it, but I think I will wait until AFTER the wedding. Such a bummer, but I would rather do it with the actual pictures.

Oooor, I might cave and do it later. Who knows. Depends on how busy the day is.

Friday's Letters

Friday's Letters. I missed you last week. I promise, we will never be apart again.

Well, that's just a bold faced lie, but whatever.

Anyway...

Dear Boss Man, please don't think that my recent behavior is an indication of my work ethic. Writing "shit" in a report was one thing, but I SWEAR that I actually sent it in this week (without swears) and it must have just disappeared into the abyss of the Internet.

Dear N's Cat, I don't know what the hell was into you last night, but we are pretty sure that you saw a mouse. Do us all a favor and find that mouse and put it humanely outside before I come over there again. Seriously, I don't do mice. Fix it.

Dear Mr. Fresh, sometimes I think that you ACTUALLY get what is going on and understand everything that we say. Barking at Big A last night when he said you like to eat poop is one thing (for the record, Mr. Fresh doesn't eat poop, wouldn't want him to get offended reading this), but then you totally snubbed me when I said that you were picky. Really? Why so sensitive?

Dear Google Searchers, while I normally enjoy seeing all of the weird shit that people google, this time it seems to have gone too far. Please take a moment and check out the search keywords that get people to my blog:
Yeah... you see the 4th one down. WTF?! Out of pure curiosity I searched it. It is disgusting and disturbing. Don't do it. And obviously, my blog didn't come up. I don't even want to know what post made them find it.

Dear Readers, want a sneak peak from the Bachelorette weekend?
1. My dress for dinner. 2. Personal coozie. The only way to drink.
3. My special glass. The only OTHER way to drink. and
4. The jug of wine that my brother's girlfriend brought with her on Friday and it was gone
by the time we went out to dinner Saturday night. Oh how I love her.

Dear Week, please be over soon. Working 5 days is for the birds. Which is also a lie because I had a half day on Wednesday. I just don't want to work. Shocking.

Dear Weekend, please be so much fun. And don't make Kevin Lemanowicz a liar. I better not see any rain. (Sidenote: when googling how to spell his name, I came across a website asking whether or not he was a cyborg, of course I HAD to check on it. Turns out it was just some guy talking about how many hours he works and how attractive he is. In a "non-gay" way of course. As he puts it.)

Dear Wedding, 15 days? Really? Slow the eff down my friend.  

Dear Future Guest Posters, THANK YOU SO MUCH for agreeing to guest post while I am away with my brand new hubby celebrating our newlywed status. You girls are the best!!!

Dear Patriots, do me a favor and don't play how you played on Monday. It was a tad embarrassing. You all know that you are better than that. And let's go ahead and get rid of those "Superbowl Hangover" rumors as well. I'm STILL getting over the hurt of losing, but I'm willing to let it go if you don't suck this season. OK? Thanks!

Alright lovers. That's all she wrote.

Smooches!

Inspire Me: Healthy Link-up

I'm linking up with Raven over at Don't Quote the Raven for her Inspire Me: Healthy link-up.

She's been doing this for weeks, but I'm jumping on the bandwagon today.

Because...

1) It makes it so I don't have to think of anything original to write about.

and...

2) I miss the gym. There. I said it.

With everything being so incredibly crazy go nuts, I haven't even had time to think about the gym. It has been nuts. I am still trying to watch what I eat for the most part, but having a nightly Coors or two has come back into the picture.

Seriously, you plan a wedding and NOT drink. I'd like to see that.

Anywho...

Since we had our final meeting with the venue last night, I now find myself with free time. And while I filled my free time with Mexican food and margaritas last night, I plan to actually get my big behind back to the gym.

Because, while I feel pretty good about the rest of my body... Baby still had some back that she needs to get rid of. I mean, 21 pounds is a lot, but it isn't all I need to lose. I still have about 10ish to go. And while I am still slowly, but steadily losing weight (and not putting it back on, holler) I need to get back on track.

So, I'm jumping on the Raven train (track, train? You guys keeping up with these metaphors? Analogies? Where am I?) and hoping that this will hold me accountable. Since apparently having my own link-up was a big fat fail. I mean, c'mon... who else was sick of hearing "No Foxy Friday today because I sat on my fat ass all week...I promise next week will be better".

Yeah, next week never came.

So... with 16 days left until the wedding, I need to get my ass back in gear. I want to tone up a bit more so that the pictures don't show my arms flapping in the wind. No one likes a flappy Bride.

So, while I may not make it to the gym tonight (it is honestly between going to the gym or cleaning my ridiculous house - which still burns calories) it is on my mind and I WILL be back there.

Also... I actually left something out to defrost for dinner! To make a healthy meal that doesn't involve a restaurant and copious amounts of alcohol.

That's right. The BITCH is BACK!

There will be two more of these link-ups before the wedding and I PROMISE that I will have some sort of update or else I will buy everyone a pony! (OMG! Just joking! No one hold me to that! I can't even afford a toy pony!)

So What! Wednesday

I would like to start this So What! Wednesday off with a little letter to my beloved dog.

Dear Mr. Fresh, I'm not sure what the hell got into you this morning, but 4:00 AM is NOT an acceptable time to ask to go out. And then waking me up at 5:00 and then 6:00 is totally not cool. I understand that technically I am supposed to be up by 6:00, but we all know I'm not. If you pull that shit again, your dog bed is getting moved to the living room and I will be shutting the bedroom door at night from now on. Smooches!

OK. I feel better now.

Let's get this show on the road.

I'm linking up with Shannon from over at Life After I Dew.

This week I am saying So What! if...

* I was up until almost midnight last night finishing up what I needed to for our final venue meeting today. I went to pick something up from my parents' house and got talking with my dad for hours. I would rather be rushing and a Last Minute Larry than miss out on that time with him.

* I wanted to punch Big A in the face ask Big A if he actually listens to me when I talk or just pretends. I don't know how many times I have told him that EVERYTHING is due at this meeting today. Everything. So when I asked for help and he said we would do it after our meeting, I wanted to scream. And no...he didn't help. Jerk face.

* I'm still waiting for something in the mail that I need like ASAP. And I WANT to call them up and curse them out, but I really need it. So, I can't risk getting my order cancelled out of spite. Oooooh I can't wait to write an angry letter once I get it. Bastards.

* I am a little bit grumpy today due to lack of sleep, stress, general hatred towards my job, etc. Maybe I should put a sign up telling people not to talk to me today.

* The fact that I have to work a half day, meet Big A to copy pictures, drive half an hour to have my final fitting, and then drive back into town for our final venue meeting that we were told to "bring a snack" to because it goes so long, makes me want to hit the sauce right..... meow.

* I have all this food that I bought to cook dinners and make lunches and I think I have cooked twice. And maybe brought lunch once. Way to go me!

* I do not want to go to my staff meeting today. I'm hoping that I can get out of it since I am only working a half day and I need to get stuff done on this end. But then again... when do I ever want to go to my staff meeting.

* I still haven't uploaded pictures from my Bachelorette Party. I just haven't had time to even think about it until I start writing a post and I'm like, "Shit! Forgot again!". Some day. But then again, I have New Year's posts that I never ended up posting... so this might be an empty promise.

Alright lovers. I'm out of here. Head on over to Shannon's blog and link up.

Also, still looking for a couple more people to Guest Post for the week of September 17th - 21st! Let me know if you are interested. I don't have a bagillion followers but you can totally drop the F bomb and talk about whatever you want!

Adios!

Slaving Away on the To Do List

So, I spent most of my night last night finishing up some projects. We have our final appointment with our venue tomorrow and everything is due then. So I am trying to get everything together.

Hopefully I will have time tonight to throw together a Bachelorette Weekend post. We will see.

I know... I know... you guys are like "This Bitch never comes through".

Anyway... since we ARE so close to having everything due, let's take a looksie at my to do list shall we.

I feel a billion times better after getting a bunch of stuff last night.

I also have a bunch of posts that I can't wait to show you, but obviously I need to wait until AFTER the wedding!

1.Finalize the guest count. Call all outstanding RSVP's.


2.Do the Seating Chart. Planning to start that this week.

3.Find & print seating cards. Need to alphabetized by last name. 

4.Decide if there will be place card holders or not. There will not.

5.Find pictures for table names. Get materials. Make signs. Have everything. Just need to put together tonight.
6.Buy the stones for the centerpieces.
7.Buy materials for the programs, print, & put together.
8.Decide on whether or not we want to bother with menus. I had them all designed and then decided I didn't feel like doing it! Haha!

9.Make cake appointment.
10.Pick out cake. Decide on design. Bring topper to meeting. Had meeting. Everything is all set. Forgot topper. Just need to drop it off at some point.

11.Decide on song list. (Ceremony, Entrance, First Dance, etc.) Working on selecting ceremony music and need Mother/Son Dance song. Thankfully our DJ is patient with me!
12.Pick out parent presents. Figured out what I want to do.

13.Get marriage license

14.Decide on old, new, borrowed, and blue.  Still...no clue. I suck.

15.Break in wedding shoes. Will work on this weekend when I am at my parents' house.
16.Buy batteries for centerpieces. I asked Big A to do this over the weekend and then forgot to tell him anything else about it. Whoops. Maybe we can go tomorrow.

17.Make LOVE sign (which would be easier if I could actually remember what the hell it was or where I found it) Forget it!

18.Buy baskets for bathrooms and supplies. Put together.

19.Put together Bridesmaids gifts. All put together. Need to find boxes and  then I am done!

20.Wrap Groomsmen gifts. Need to go to the Christmas Tree Shop and get bags or something.

21.Come up with "day of" timeline. E-mail to Wedding Party. Slacking...

22.Send out invitations for rehearsal dinner. Big A is mailing them out today. Seriously, Kristen did a freaking amazing job. I can't wait to show all of you!!!
23.Finish writing "thank you " notes from the shower. Wrote all the ones I could. Need to get more (should have done it when I was at Target yesterday...dummy!) We keep getting gifts though so, I now have MORE to write than I thought. Totally OK with that though. Seriously, people are SO generous!
24.Finalize the rooms for the night before and night of the wedding. Done the night before. Night of is set, just need to get them a credit card number.

25.Get final payments together. This makes me want to crawl under my desk and cry, but we got it. Need to go get the final check for the Venue today. (Insert dry heaving here)

26.Have final meetings with vendors (florist, photographer, DJ, etc.) Florist is all set. DJ done on 8/8. Photographer was 8/15, and Venue is 8/22. (Need to get pic ideas together for Photographer)

27.Buy Photobooth favors. Put together. My freaking ridiculously awesome MOH came over last night and help me put them all together! Seriously, she is amazing.
28.Figure out picture cards.  I forgot that our photographer has a new option that she is trying out and we get it for FREE. She will have cards made from our Engagement pictures that will tell people where to go and they can upload all of the pictures they take. Yay!

29.Pick up Dress. Appointment Aug. 22nd. Tomorrow!!! EEEK!!!

30.Go away for Bachelorette weekend!
31.Make sign for Memory Table. 

32.E-mail picture to DJ.

33. Bring Big A's watch to get fixed. Brought it in. It needs a new band. Big A is going in on Wednesday to pick it out.

34. Pick picture for picture cards.

35. Pick up rings from being engraved. Big A's is ready. Mine still needs to come back. I'm DYING to find out what he wrote. We aren't supposed to look until after the ceremony. Haha!

Not too shabby. Not everything on the list is due tomorrow. Just most of it. Haha. I also want to make a list of everything that I am dropping off at the venue so if they lose something then I can be like "I gave it to you, so saw it". Is that a little crazy OCD? Or does anyone else think that I am super smart.
 
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
 
Alright, I am out. Getting ready for all the big wig Executives to come visit.
 
Ya know, the ones that never come to Massachusetts, but coincidentally had a meeting booked and then I had to go write SHIT in a report. Awesome.
 
Can't wait to hear about that one.
 
Alright... Outie 5,000.

I'm Baaaaaack...kinda...

Hey There Friends!

Guess who is back?!

I had an absolutely FABULOUS weekend! Seriously... I have THE best group of friends EVER.

And while I don't think I will be drinking for awhile (i.e. the next 8 hours) it was the best time!

I can't wait to share it with all of you.

Unfortunately, being out a day from work means that you get to play catch-up when you come back.

So, I will be spending my day doing 8 million things and continuing to profusely apologize for writing the word "shit" in a report that goes directly to the CEO and all of the high-up executives in the company. (Yep, totally happened, but in my defense I was doing a bunch of things at once, was totally over-worked, trying to get ready to go away for the weekend...and...hellooo... my wedding is in like 3 minutes... I'm stressed!)

Lucky for you, I did a guest post over at Life After I Dew yesterday, so you still have something fun and exciting to read about.

More drunken adventures for you!

I will be back tomorrow. Hopefully I will have my shit together more.

Probably not.

Smooches!

He's "The One"

The one thing that I have always been sure about when it comes to this wedding is Big A.

I have never had any doubts that he was the one for me.

Not even when he told me he "might as well just put a ring on my finger right now because he will never meet another girl like me" the night we met...and then waited four years to actually do it.

Not even at 11 o'clock at night when he is making the dog growl by "giving him hugs" (aka Bear Hugging him)...OK maybe sometimes when that happens...

But... every so often something happens that makes me just be that much MORE sure, that I found the one.

Last night, Big A came home for date night and we caught each other up on our days. Starting with the fact that I essentially got a bucket of water dumped on me as I walked to my car that morning in the torrential downpour.

We compared notes about how the day busted our balls and I went into detail about how my head was just swimming with bullshit. Work stuff. Wedding stuff. Friend stuff. Home stuff. That I had so much to do and not enough time to do it and I left the meeting with the photographer completely full of information. Seriously, if I was a computer, I am pretty sure that I would have crashed with a "memory full" error of some sort.

We got on the subject of a house that we had been lusting over and then talked about dinner. The conversation went like this:

Big A: "What do you want to do for dinner?"
Me: "You said you wanted enchiladas. I forgot to defrost the chicken like an idiot so I am trying to defrost it in hot water in the bathroom sink, since there are dishes in the kitchen one. Obviously. But I just did it, because I just got home and I have been running around doing a million things.
Big A: "Get your stuff. Let's go drive by and take a look at that house and then I'm taking you out to dinner. You need to get out of the house and just chill for awhile."

And that we did. We drove by the house. Fell even more in love. And just talked. We went to restaurant that we haven't been to in forever and just had a good time. It was great. I felt like a million bucks. Recharged.

And of course, I had to finish the place cards when we got home which kept me busy until 11:00 PM, but I wasn't stressing over it. And they are done!

That's what I love about Big A. He knows that when there is too much going on and I am spinning out of  control that I need him to physically stop me because I can't do it on my own.

I've been that way since I was little. My mom used to say that when I was overtired I used to just spin around in circles in the living room. All my babysitters would just assume that I wasn't tired. She told them to just stop me. Physically stop me. Hold me for 30 seconds and I would be out.

My dad used it as a trick to show his friends.

I've never had to ASK Big A to stop me from spinning. He's always just known to do it.

That's why he's perfect for me. And I can't WAIT until he is my husband.

Alright my lovers. That's enough mush and gush for now. I'm off to tackle my ginormous to do list because I am off tomorrow. Spending the weekend at the Cape with my favorite bitches for my Bachelorette Party.

I could not be MORE excited.

Smooches!

So What! Wednesday

Even while on vacation and hanging out at the beach, Shannon makes sure to post So What! Wednesday.

Gotta love that girl.

Anyway... let's get on with it.

This week I am saying So What! if...

* I'm going to seriously cut someone if this weather forecast doesn't change. ASAP.

Seriously. Rain is fine for home. NOT my Bachelorette weekend where my ass is supposed to be on the BEACH for 72 hours. Ug.

* I got annoyed when someone called me this morning and told me that I had to meet a new employee and entertain him until someone else got there. Seriously? What if I had shit to do. Don't call me 20 min before the guy is supposed to get here. Obnoxious. And I don't like new people.

* Today is the only day that I don't need to run errands at lunch time, but I might just to avoid the people in my office. I'm such a people person aren't I?

* I am putting WAY too much thought into whether we need menus for the wedding. I LOVE the way they look and think they are super classy, but on the other hand I really don't feel like doing them. And by doing them I mean printing them and putting them on backing paper. Mainly because I can't find the right backing paper. Thoughts?

* I asked Big A what I get for doing all of  this wedding stuff on my own. He said "me for the rest of your life" I told him to keep thinking. I want a dinner. With a lobster. AT LEAST. I also wouldn't say no to diamond earrings. Just saying.

* My house is a complete disaster. Seriously. There is SHIT everywhere. Well, not literal shit, but wedding shit. I SO want my living room back. It is covered in boxes, paper, glue guns, a printer, rhinestones, etc. I don't even bother cleaning it because there's too much stuff.

* I haven't been to the gym yet this week. And I maybe went once last week. I go home and do wedding stuff from the second I get home around 4:00 PM and work until 10:00 - 10:30. I somehow find time to make dinner sometimes in there, but I am mostly working. When am I supposed to go to the gym? Don't worry I've been starving myself and popping diet pills though... I'm kidding...kind of...

* We lost power the second I walked into work this morning (literally right as I was walking in) and I asked how long it had to be out before I could go home. I have things to do. If I can't work why should I be here? And yes... you would still be paying me.

* Sometimes I wish I was half as much of an asshole as people seem to think I am. It would make my life a million times easier. I would be able to cut out all the bullshit and drama without feeling bad. I've decided that's what I want to be when I grow up... an asshole.

And I'll finish on that note. Happy Hump Day Lovers!

Just a Little Freak Out...

OK... OK.... Seriously... I've had enough.

Last night, (like every night last week) I came home from work at 4:00 and got started on wedding stuff. I finally crawled my tired ass into bed at 10:30. This is getting ridiculous.

To make matters worse, I go to the fridge to find that Big A and his friends drank all of my beers the night before.

You people don't like my beers. You constantly make fun of it. Please explain to me why you drank MY beers.

So, Big A comes home and I kindly ever so gently ask him what happened to the beers. He said he and the guys drank them and he didn't think much of it because sometimes I leave beer in the fridge for weeks and don't touch it (Way to exaggerate Big A, we all know that I don't let alcohol sit untouched for weeks...please)

To which I responded... I'm wedding planning... I drink every.single.night.

It may only be one or two beers, but I drink.

I then kindly asked him to get me a six pack before he left. He did, but not without a scoff. So I tacked on some laundry for him to do before he left too.

Aren't I sweet?

I DID give him the choice of taking over some of the wedding projects and I would do the laundry.

Yeah... laundry didn't seem so bad.

I REALLY started feeling the stress yesterday. I have 8 BILLION things to do and they all need to to be pretty much done by Thursday night because I am gone all weekend. I am holding Monday & Tuesday next week hostage in case I need to finish anything and then everything is due to the venue on Wednesday.

Wednesday people. Wednesday.

Oy! Whose stupid idea was it to plan this meeting right after my Bachelorette Party.

And I'm sure some of you people are saying, "Well, Kayleigh... if you weren't such a control freak, then maybe you could ask for help and this wouldn't be so crazy".

I kid you not. I would welcome help if it was possible. But right now, it is all stuff that I need to do and having someone else around wouldn't make much of a difference. Right now I am just designing the paper products, (programs, menus, etc.) and printing.

That's it. So, unfortunately it won't make any difference.

I did manage to get all of the programs printed last night before the printer ran out of color ink (that I swore up and down that I didn't need to the guy at Staples when I was buying the black in. I'm pretty sure he followed me home and switched out the cartridges while I was gone. It was all too coincidental that I ran out of ALL THREE colors). Now I just have to shell out the 8 billion dollars to get more ink and continue on my printing. Woo hoo.

I started editing photos that I need. I spent most of my afternoon researching photoshop tutorials, which I still consider part of work because I'm supposed to be learning this crap anyway. And this is what I learned:

Not perfect, but pretty good for just learning it!

So, now I need to continue the hunt for pictures and edit about 8 billion of them.

I'm doing OK, just freaking a little more than I am used to! It's all temporary though. After Wednesday I can relax a little until the 31st which is when everything is due to the florist. I'm also waiting for a few things to be shipped, so it would be super sweet if they could just hurry the eff up and send me the shit I ordered a month ago. Thanks!

So, in true fashion of trying to "keep it real" this is where I am.

Freaking the eff out.

Thank GOD for alcohol. And a Fiance who does everything he can to make me laugh at 11 o'clock at night when I am so exhausted that I just want to cry.

Almost done... 25 days... I can do this.

Happy Tuesday Folks! Hope you all are having a fabulous week!

Wedding Planning Update

This weekend I was a slave to wedding planning. Seems like that's the case these days. But then again, when you only have 26 days left (9 until everything is due to the venue) that's pretty much your life. Ya know.

Thank GOD for my mom who is constantly available every second that I need her. If I was her I would want to slap me if someone dragged me through Michaels every.single.weekend.

Good thing she is a nicer person that me.

Got some stuff checked off the to do list. Two items that were HUGE including, putting together the place cards (why do I always come up with these elaborate ideas? Good thing they came out amazing) and getting the seating chart done.

Seriously, I have been dreading that mother effing seating chart since we got engaged. And honestly... it was probably one of the easiest things that we have done. No joke.

I gave my mom the people for my side of the family and her & my dad's friends. I gave my future MIL her family & friends. And said have at it. I did our friends and work people. It was easy as pie. We met yesterday. Had some wine. Busted out the list. And then still had time to drink more wine, check out possible dresses for my MIL for the wedding (seriously... the purple one is STUNNING... I kind of want it...), and catch up. It was great.

Add that with Big A being a rockstar yesterday helping me with groceries and laundry and it was a pretty good productive day.

I was originally going to post about the place cards, but seeing as how they took a billion hours and probably 10 years off my life... I'm going to have a whole post for them after the wedding. I want SOME surprises.

Anywho... here's where I am on my to do list:

1.Finalize the guest count. Call all outstanding RSVP's. Have every one's response. Just need meal choice for 4 people.


2.Do the Seating Chart. Planning to start that this week.

3.Find & print seating cards. Need to alphabetized by last name. Cards all put together. With names. Just need to put on which table they are at. Need to decide on table names first.
4.Decide if there will be place card holders or not. There will not.

5.Find pictures for table names. Get materials. Make signs. Got the materials. Need pictures. We found about 7 out of 19 this weekend.

6.Buy the stones for the centerpieces. Finally found the right ones. Need to order.

7.Buy materials for the programs, print, & put together. Bought supplies. Had a slight issue*. Back on track. Design is finished. Need to print.

8.Decide on whether or not we want to bother with menus. Undecided still. We will see how much time, energy, money, etc. I have. Doesn't seem like it would take too much work, but we will see.

9.Make cake appointment. Will do this week. Scheduled tentatively for this Thursday the 16th

10.Pick out cake. Decide on design. Bring topper to meting.

11.Decide on song list. (Ceremony, Entrance, First Dance, etc.) Finalized the Reception music, except for the Mother/Son song, but that will be done by Wednesday**. Need to talk to him tomorrow about ceremony music.

12.Pick out parent presents. Figured out what I want to do.

13.Get marriage license. Need to pick that up today.

14.Decide on old, new, borrowed, and blue. Still...No clue.

15.Break in wedding shoes. Crap! They are at my parents' house. I NEVER remember to do this.
16.Buy batteries for centerpieces.

17.Make LOVE sign (which would be easier if I could actually remember what the hell it was or where I found it) Forget it!

18.Buy baskets for bathrooms and supplies. Put together.

19.Put together Bridesmaids gifts.

20.Wrap Groomsmen gifts.

21.Come up with "day of" timeline. E-mail to Wedding Party.

22.Send out invitations for rehearsal dinner. The AMAZING Kristen is working on them! LOVE her!

23.Finish writing "thank you " notes from the shower.Written all that I can. Waiting for more cards. Need to have Big A sign the ones I have and just send them out. - No progress here haha.

24.Finalize the rooms for the night before and night of the wedding. Done the night before. Night of is set, just need to get them a credit card number.

25.Get final payments together. This makes me want to crawl under my desk and cry, but we got it.

26.Have final meetings with vendors (florist, photographer, DJ, etc.) Florist is all set. DJ done on 8/8. Photographer is 8/15, and Venue is 8/22. (Need to get pic ideas together for Photographer)

27.Buy Photobooth favors. Put together.Ordered. Need to put them together when I get them.
28.Figure out picture cards. Don't think I am going to do this anymore.

29.Pick up Dress. Appointment Aug. 22nd

30.Go away for Bachelorette weekend! Aug. 17-19 THIS WEEKEND!!!

31.Make sign for Memory Table. Got the frame. Just need to type & print.

32.E-mail picture to DJ. Crap. Need to do this.

33. Bring Big A's watch to get fixed. Bringing it in today

Not too shabby. Could be worse. Could be better. Some stuff could be done after the 22nd, so I am going to leave that for last in case I get crazy! Haha. I really, really, really, want to do menus but I might not have time. I just think they look SO classy.

Because classy is my middle name, if you didn't know.

Aaaannnd.... you can all stop laughing.

Alright lovers, I'm off for today. I promise that the next weekend recap will be more exciting. Seeing as how it will be from the Bachelorette Party! Although... look for a still partially hung over post on Monday and then some public-approved pictures some time throughout the week when I can finally stomach looking at pictures containing alcohol again.

Mom... are you so proud reading that? Haha

Smooches!

Friday's Letters

Sorry for the late arrival my friends.

I'm sure you were frantically pressing the "refresh" button on your browsers waiting to see my blog post for the day.

I kid. I kid.

But seriously... apparently after the first pre-season Patriots game of the season (and one too many frozen margarita / Coors drinks.. coorsaritas?) I needed to hop right down to business this morning. And the only reason that I have time now is that my boss went to get a haircut. Oy!

No one is supposed to actually work on Fridays. 

Anywho... I'm linking up with Ashley for Friday's Letters. And you should too!

Dear Big A, thank you for getting my tylenol and water last night when I told you that I had too much fun. Also, thank you for making me chicken nuggets at 11:00 PM. You are the best. It is probably the reason that I'm not feeling like a "bag of smashed assholes" as you so eloquently put it.

Dear Wedding, I temporarily forgot that you were my bitch and let you get the best of me. Silly me. Get ready Pumpkin, you're in for a wild ride the next 30 days. You're mine.

Dear Self, why did you just picture yourself as a tough biker and your wedding as a measly little wimp in that last one? I think your imagination is getting out of control. Sidenote: you look hot in biker clothes. Invest immediately. Just remember it isn't your real body that you pictured in your head.

Dear A-Hole Business Manager at Our Venue, our little meeting yesterday was pretty ridiculous. I'm pretty sure that I would not plan a business meeting there if I had to work with you. I am also 100% sure that if you were the one who was in charge of my wedding I would have cancelled by now and flown to Vegas. You're lucky that my wedding coordinator is the bees' knees and I trust her enough not to believe your comments. Also, your professionalism is lacking. Lock it up bitch!

Dear Coordinator, thank you for not being like that hag bag above. I'm happy that YOU are the one that I am working with and not her.

Dear Boss Man, laughing at me when I answer your question of "you know what we need to do?" with "give me a big fat raise because I'm awesome" isn't being a nice friend. And I was kind of serious. Way to kill my dreams. What's next? Santa's not real?

Dear Coorsaritas, thank you for being so delicious. I enjoy drinking you so much. So much that I never want to share you. Which is bad for my manners. But, good for my buzz. Priorities... ya know.

Dear Kristen, your proof of our Rehearsal Dinner invites is ridiculously amazing. Seriously, I couldn't have made it more perfect myself. It is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I knew you GOT me.

Dear Mr. Fresh, I've been looking at your baby pictures for a dog-themed guest post I am doing and seriously you were the cutest little puff ball ever. (Anyone want a sneak peak? He's too cute NOT to share ASAP)

Check out that cute little baby puppy face!!!

Dear Friday, I <3 always.="always." as="as" you.="you.">

That's all for today lovers! Have a wonderful weekend filled with too much booze and bad decisions. I kid. I kid. Only too much booze!

Rambles

I'm going to apologize ahead of time and say that I am sorry that my blog will be about 90% wedding for the next month and a half (Umm...gottta do recaps...duh!).

I never wanted it to be all about the wedding, but this blog IS about my life, and right now my life pretty much centers around getting shit done for the wedding.

And trying not to freak out.

The past three nights I feel like I have been a prisoner of my house. Seriously. I go home. Start a project. Work on it until my eyes are crossed. And then call it a night. Sometimes dinner sneaks in there.

Last night we met with our DJ and got a bunch of stuff finalized. We picked songs for all the special moments and then completely blanked when he asked us what our ceremony music was. #Fail.

I have no clue. I told him to just pick something and then he kindly suggested that he could send me some ideas. He has a point. If he picks something ridiculous for when I walk down the aisle then I'm pretty sure that all of our pictures will have be giving him the stank eye as I walk by.

So back to the drawing board I go. This music thing is harder than it looks.

Doing wedding shit doesn't leave much time for anything else. Working out, hanging with friends, spending quality time with Big A (he's really good about hanging with me and chatting while I slave away, but I would much rather be doing something FUN with him), breathing.

I know I can ask for help. And I will if I decide I need it, but I think that right now I have things managed. For the most part, having an extra set of hands wouldn't really free me up all that more. Don't worry friends, when it comes down the the wire and I'm STILL not done, I will be calling and begging for help and trying to bribe you with the prospect of wine (that I will ask you to pick up...and probably pay for since I am shackled to my house and don't have enough common sense to EVER hit the ATM...ever!)

But I really do miss going to the gym. Especially since I start to feel squishy when I don't. Which is ridiculous since I haven't gained any weight and my body doesn't look any different. I think it is just a mental thing (yeah, I'm sure you are all surprised to find out I'm mental. Shock of the century right there) but I FEEL better when I go to the gym. I feel healthier, I feel lighter, skinnier, happier.

Not to mention I am still about 10 lbs away from my goal.

So, I think I am going to try to make a bit more of an effort. If I thought it was even possible I would wake up early and hit the gym BEFORE work. But seeing as how I can't even get there on time this week when all I have to do is dress myself... I'm not thinking that is a great choice.

I did however, get approval from Big A that when we get a house we are going to get a treadmill and an elliptical so I can quit the gym and work out at home. I REALLY want to keep up with this. I don't want to go back to the way that I was. Fat and unhappy.

So I'm going to make more of an effort. Because I know it helps with my stress. I am going to try to walk 2 miles during the day at work and then hit the gym at least 3 times a week.

But that will have to start tomorrow.

Because tonight... tonight is FOOTBALL.

You heard me. MOTHER FUCKING FOOTBALL!!!

And I get to spend my day picking people to go to the Patriots' game tonight (and this season) for the season tickets my company just bought and no... my name is not on the list. Ug. SO unfair.

I even joked that I put my name on every piece of paper in the drawing. STILL... no one offered me tickets.

Hopefully one of these jokers can't make a game last minute and I will Swiper no Swiping them and be gone before anyone knows it. Who need a job anyway?

Alright lovers. I'm over and out. Let's try and make it through today. Because tomorrow is a beautiful day.

Friday. One of my favorite F words!

So What! Wednesday

It's time for another So What! Wednesday up in this hizzy!

Sorry... I won't do that again. I get a 'lil gangsta every so often. Mostly when I'm drinking. But apparently at 7:30  on a Wednesday morning.

And no... I haven't been drinking.

Anyway... I'm linking up with Shannon over at Life After I Dew.

This week I am saying So What! if...

* I haven't been to the gym yet this week. I know. I know. But I have had wedding project after wedding project. And honestly, as much shit as there is to do... I've been enjoying just relaxing on the couch, watching TV, drinking a beer, and painting, cutting, gluing, etc. whatever needs to be done.

* The fact that our wedding is one month from today makes me want to shit my pants. Don't worry, I won't.

* I've said shit in both of these So What!'s so far (now all 3 yay!). Let's pretend it is the magic word on Pee Wee's Playhouse. Say it and crazy things will happen.... I kid. Nothing will happen.

* We are going to get our Marriage License today and woah that makes things feel super real.

* Sometimes I like to pretend like I know what I'm talking about. Like when Big A asked last night how long the meeting with the DJ will be tonight I responded, "Probably about an hour". I have no clue. I don't even know what he wants to ask us. I've never been married before, I don't know what I'm doing!

* I am WAY more excited about the Patriot's first Pre-Season game tomorrow then probably anything else this week. I <3 a="a" coincidentally="coincidentally" do="do" don="don" either.="either." football="football" game.="game." have="have" i="i" its="its" m="m" meeting="meeting" month="month" nothing="nothing" on="on" only="only" season.="season." smaht.="smaht." supah="supah" t="t" that="that" the="the" they="they" this="this" to="to" we="we" wednesday="wednesday">

* The fact that my boss moved his staff meeting to a day that I won't be able to attend makes me so incredibly happy. Almost as happy as I am about football season. Seriously, I HATE staff meetings. My ADD goes crazy during those 6 hours of hell and I end up just playing on my Ipad. And then forgetting to take notes. Sooo... not August Staff Meeting for me. Next time I'm in one... I'll be married. Holler!

* Due to the fact that we have a severe spider problem at our house (you should have seen the one that was outside my bedroom door last night. OMG the thing was like radioactive or some shit like that!) makes me constantly think that I have spiders all over me. Every piece of hair that moves, every time my necklace moves, if I brush my hand over something, etc. I automatically think it is a spider. You would too if you saw some of these creeps. Ick.

* I'm still pissed of at some bullshit that went down at work last week with some of my co-workers. It really made me see them in a whole new light. And while it looks like they have completely forgotten all about it, I'm still hanging on. Which was evident yesterday when one of them asked for my help with something and I responded, "I'll help you when I can, which isn't right now" in a snotty voice.

* I've been late to work every day this week. Ug. I have been having trouble waking up in the morning. No news there. This morning I was super late because on top of jumping out of bed 5 minutes after I should have left the house, I got a bloody nose when I was leaving. Awesome. At least no one was here.

Alright, that's all for today lovers!
