FRIDAY Rant and Rave

Morning ladies! Let's get the day going :).

Rant: I love working on the invites, but sometimes it feels like it doesn't end. Now I see why there are so many wedding bios where the invites are DIY'ed and then they stop!

Rave: WORLD CUP!!!!! Still looking for a good place to watch tomorrow's USA-England match, but something tells me I'll just watch from my couch while putting together invites.

Rant #2: WHERE THE F**** IS SUMMER? IT'S JUNE FERCHRISSAKES! DON'T YOU KNOW WE HAVE E-PICS TO TAKE? AND SOME OF THESE LADIES ARE GETTING MARRIED? Ahem, excuse me.

Rave #2: Montreal bachelor party (not mine, for a friend of mine) was actually fun! Props to the best man for pleasantly surprising me by planning a few activities that didn't involve a casino or stripclub.

    Rant: I pulled my butt check muscle Embarassedand it freakin hurts! Like nik said "Where the hell is summer" this weather is so depressing. And I have so much to do for the wedding but I dont even know where to start. Oh and I have to remake my programs because it says my dad is walking me down the aisle poo! I am now at the point of every spare moment has to be spent on wedding stuff. I dont have time for the six graduation parties we are invited too this weekend :(

    Rave: It is supposed to be nice this weekend. I think we will get our family/re-do epics today *fingerscrossed* I am getting some more DIY done that I expected to neglect. And we paid off the last vendor yesterday :)

    Jennlin - why can't the furbabies just give him his father's day present a day early? It still counts.

    RANT: Um...so I had a MAJOR meltdown on Wednesday. As in crying in my car, HUGE blow-up fight with FI and yesterday emailed him that at the moment considering how I was feeling, I didn't want to get married anymore. I'm admitting it to y'all because I can't recall ANYONE ever talking about this kind of thing on here, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who has gone through this kind of 24+ hours of anxiety. I think it was just due to combo of actually being swamped at work which is stress I'm unused to, WR anxiety about getting all this sh!t done in less than 17 days (17 days!), and general anxiety about getting married. I feel better now but  poor FI is still a bit shaken.

    RAVE: HAIR TRIAL tonight!!! True, I have to go home so FI and I can strategize about what needs to get finished so I can stop having nightly panic attacks I hope. But I'm still excited AND remembered to bring my crappy camera.

    Rant:  My assistant is an hour late.  I just found out that she's not coming because she's throwing up.  Awesome, thanks for letting us know, and there goes any planning time I may have had today.  Also, we have a school potluck tonight.  I hate school potlucks.

    Rave:  My mom & I are going to Pike Place this weekend to talk to flower growers, and also to buy alcohol for the wedding!  And I think I finally may have figured out what to do for the RD.  And FI entered us in a cribbage tournament tomorrow, which could enable us to win a bunch of money if we do well...

    Haha ... I entered a Rock Band tournament and was hoping to win something there that would help pay for stuff, but we lost to the #1 band in the country. Oh well :(.

    Rant: Besides the weather, I don't think I have anything to rant about today...oh except we have people coming over and FI was no help in cleaning up the house.  Oh well.

    RAVE:  I'm graduating from my masters program today!!!  Then we have a nice dinner planned with family and FI is taking me on a surprise trip tomorrow morning through Tuesday.  I know we're going but I don't find out where until tonight!  Yay!  I'm so happy to be done and now focus on the wedding more and so happy to get away.

    Niq - damned Rock Band peoples! Don't they know you have a wedding to pay for?

    Jennyann - good luck!!

    Jennlin - thanks! I thought I wrote also, but what I meant was I am sharing so that anyone else who has experienced this (or may in the future) knows that they aren't the only one.

    Rant:  Aunt Flo is making me regret getting up from bed this morning.  I want to leave work and crash on my couch and pig out on chocolate and greasy, salty, snack food for the rest of the day. Cry

    Rave:  I'm getting my hair done tomorrow (just the roots touched up) and my lil' puppy got the last of his puppy shots this week, so he can now sniff all the doggie butts he wants this weekend!

    WR Rave:  FMIL emailed me photos of FGMIL and FGFIL's wedding from the late 1940's and her and FFIL's wedding from the late 70's, which I will eventually print and put in cute lil' frames for our guest book table (along side other family wedding photos).  The FIL's photos are HILARIOUS!  Light blue tuxes, big floppy hats, long sleeved ruffled dresses....  I hope our photos don't look like that in 20-30 years!

    Rant AND Rave: FI and I have begun a "summer meltdown" challenege with my personal trainer versus a whole bunch of other people. It's great because I'm motivated and it's not because I have been SO SORE!!!

    No pain, no gain... here's to trying to win some free sessions!

And i get to buy my reception shoes. Some ass kickin slip on converses in Chocolate so they go with our wedding colors, lol! And the coolest part about getting them, I'm only paying 5 bucks! Nordstrom's money notes have been very nice to me!!
