things i've learned along the way...

I wrote this yesterday but never had time to post it...

today is one of those days where you just feel like you are sinking. this post is not going to be for those looking for a nice pick me up and happiness hug...but hey it's my blog and i will whine if I want to! I only work this week today, tomorrow and Thursday so if you think I've gone over the deep end, don't worry, I am happy just knowing that i have another 3 day weekend in just a few short days!

Things I've learned: Wedding

  • Do not sign up for more than 2 wedding websites when you are planning your wedding, you WILL get inundated with emails from these people EVERYDAY, and you will not open at least 85% of them, thus they will clog up your crackberry and you gmail account.

  • Do not give yourself 15 months to plan a wedding (even though we got married last April, we are not having our ceremony and party (read very expensive day to celebrate) until this June). Regardless of why you think 15 months will be great, it isn't! If I could do it all over again I would have done the big hoopla last September, only 6 months of planning and I had always wanted to have a late summer, early fall wedding, my favorite time of year. Unless someone tells you they will pay for the entire shabang do not plan around anyone but you and the Mr.

  • When the Mr. says that it is your day and he will do what ever you need do not believe him.

  • Along with not waiting 15 months, try not to have your wedding in the same 5 month period as your sister and your bff, your weekends will be booked solid for those 5 months!

Things i've learned about myself:

  • Taking care of a 5 month old and 3 year old for the weekend and your hubby getting sick makes you really really understand what it is like to have kids. I have no idea how someone could have young kids and work full time. It is Tuesday morning and I am STILL exhausted from watching the boys Saturday-Monday! Luke, I have no idea how you do it and go to school!

  • starbucks is getting a little ridiculous with charging the 50cents extra for soy milk, especially when their latte prices have gone up...remember when a tall flavored latte used to be $3.10, now they are $3.50 and with soy they are $4! Believe me if I didn't need to order they soy, I wouldn't but I don't want to have the horrid stomach aches I used to get after consuming more than a few drops of milk. cheese and yogurt are fine, but milk, BAD NEWS!

  • when you eat fast food for 3 days straight and don't run for 5 you feel like you weigh about 700lbs and you feel like your thighs are the size of an aircraft carrier.

  • grocery shopping drives me nuts. I used to not mind it at all, I don't know what changed but I LOATHE having to go and stock up on food!

  • when my hair is a hot mess i feel like i might as well be wearing a burlap sack!

  • learn how to fill in your eyebrows, and spend the extra cash to get them waxed every so often...when you hair is a hot mess and you feel like you are wearing a burlap sack, if your eyebrows are groomed and spot on you feel a ton better...
