Vents and Happies

I have been feeling very on edge lately and every single little thing is getting on my nerves. So I thought I would give us a place to vent....the only catch is for everything you vent about you have to say something positive (like something that is going well with your wedding planning or something you're looking forward to)

I'm currently annoyed that one of my single friends who we did not give a plus one to, rsvp'd with a plus one. On top of that she said, oh by the way, he's vegan so make sure he has something to eat. WTF?? Is it just me or is that a little ridiculous? I have a food allergy but it's not like when I rsvp to things I tell people about it. I ask when I get there and if I can't eat something then that's just too bad for me. It's not like I know this person or knew they were coming. We invited people who we knew were vegetarians so obviously we planned our menu to accommodate them, but not necessarily vegans. Ugh.

So my happy is that my dress alterations are finished and I have it in my possession! I was just thinking how smoothly my whole dress buying and alterations process has been, and for that I'm thankful. Also, I can't wait to be a plane to Spain the day after our wedding :)

    I'll give this a try :)

    Vent: Today is my RSVP due date and I still have 35 guests unaccounted for. WTF people?!
    Happy: Today is the one month mark for me!!

    Vent: All along, FI's parents were going to pay for our flowers so I didn't factor that cost into my budget. Today I found out they probably won't be covering all of it and that we will have to cover the difference, which is tbd.
    Happy: I went outlet shopping during my lunch break and got 3 tops, 1 pair of shorts, and 1 skirt for the honeymoon!

    Bonus Happy: My boss is out of the office today so I've been working through my to-do list.

    VENT: My RSVP date is Saturday. I am still waiting on almost 100 people to RSVP. Some of them my closet friends. I just cant believe how rude people can be. Now granted, I do understand people get busy have lives whatever. But still! Send back the damn RSVP. It's literally driving me mad!

    Happy: My FI made me smile today and posted this on my Facebook wall "I just wanted you to know I love you so much. I'm ready to be your husband. " I loved that!

    VENT: I have pretty much taken over planning my bachelorette party. Even tho my bridesmaid came up with the idea and I agreed to do it, I have done ALL the planning for it! I have let it go though because she just lost her job and the last thing she needs to worry about is planning my bach party. We are camping and floating :) I dont care if its 'against the rules' for me to be planning it. She started planning it and I gotta finish it. But its a PAIN IN THE A** to get people to get on the same damn page.

    Happy: I'm eating chedder bites and drinking a Cherry Coke from Sonic right now ;)

    Vent: I have not heard from two of our vendors- RD place and our ceremony musicians. I am hoping it's because it's school vacation week and they both just happen to be taking this busy time off. Just annoying.

    Happy- 24 days to go! And final fitting tonight. Last week I vented about feeling like crap in my dress. Today I feel a little better. So, hopefully it will go well.

    MelisMC- spill the beans! Where'd you go? I need to go shopping soon too.

    Vent: RSVP is tomorrow and missing about 20 who I have no idea if they are coming Happy: I'm just so happy and excited and feeling relaxed about things for the moment.

    VENT: my MOH has been so needy lately I've been avoiding talking to her. She's also one of the few people who haven't RSVP'd yet and our deadline is tomorrow.

    HAPPY: I haven't been home for a weekend in almost two months so I'm really looking forward to chilling at home this weekend! I'm also going outlet shopping with a friend Sunday and hopefully I'll find some cute honeymoon clothes!

    VENT: Invane has a Sonic drink and I'm jealous...

    Happy: There's an awesome ice cream place near our apartment that opened today and FI doesn't know it yet but we're going when he gets home from work :)

    Vent: 
    - Our RSVP date is May 1st and we stil have 65 people who haven't answered, and this is even after FI hunted down about 15 of his friends/family and got them to RSVP online. WHY IS IT SO HARD TO MAIL THE LITTLE PIECE OF PAPER IN?!? Come on people. And if you haven't made plans to attend by now, you probably won't be able to!
    - I am getting way too much unsolicited feedback about me switching back and forth between wanting to do/not do assigned tables. Seating charts aren't that easy people! 
    - To add to the assigned tables crap, I'm getting really concerned about escort cards because my FMIL is being a brat about giving me people's formal first names. Example: she told me just to address invitations to the names on the list she gave me. I asked her for official first names and she sent me the same list she had originally sent me saying those were right. Well obviously they weren't and I was mortified when I got an RSVP from someone I addressed as "Jay" saying "Jason". These people I've never met will think I have no etiquette. 

    Happy:
    - My last formal is this weekend so FI and I are going to have a fun weekend together :)
    - My first fitting is tomorrow! 
    - FI and I are going apartment hunting in our new city next weekend! 

    Great post idea, mookow. Makes the vents a little less bad when you add the happy!

    Vent: OMG I am soooo happy I am not the only person who feels this way!!!!  I feel awful admitting it, but honestly, I can't even handle her anymore!  I know she's going through a rough time right now w/o a S/O and she's got other life drama, but I feel like I am constantly holding her hand and helping her out with stuff when I need to be concentrating on the last minute things with my wedding.  She's always asking me if I'm mad at her, if it's ok if she plans this for my bach party, if it's ok if she comes 3 minutes late to girls night, if she's calling too much, on and on and on.  She's a super insecure person as it is and always has been, but having her as my MOH, I expected to not hold her hand through the entire process, but I feel like I'm doing all the stuff for her since she seeks my approval for EVERY decision she has to make.

    Happy: My Bachelorette party is this weekend and my mom ended up buying me the outfit I wanted since I really didn't have the budget to spend on 1 outfit.  And it's almost 5 o'clock and it's HUMP DAY!

    Vent: My grandma is driving me crazy about wedding stuff, invitations in particular. We sent the invites out three weeks ago and all the sudden she wants to add people to the guest list! I decided whatever let her do it since she is helping out a lot (we are getting married in her backyard). Well last night my ten year old sister calls me and tells me that grandma was complaining to her saying I invited far too many people! Seriously, to my little sister? She's in 4th grade what does she care?! Not to mention 90% of our invites went to my family which is huge so I'm not exactly sure what the issue here is. 

    Happy: My birthday is Friday and FI is driving down tonight (we live 3 hours apart) to spend his day off with me

    Great post!  Love it...

    Vent:  life drama is exhausting.  Not even just our life drama, but all the people we work with.  I realize I am a counselor by even I need a break from other people's drama.  Sometimes it would when I ask co-workers how they are doing I would just love to hear once "great/wonderful/good" any other positive adjective you can think of.  I'm tired of holdings hands today.  I think I need a vacation.

    Happy:  where to start really?  3 weeks to wedding day and Mrs.  Our planning has gone relatively great and FI and I are so looking forward to our wedding.  It puts smiles on our faces whenever we talk about it!  Can't wait!!

    I drove down to Wrentham and had a lot of luck at the J Crew outlet. Tons of summery clothes in bright colors and it's all on sale :) I actually live north so I might try Burlington or NS Mall this weekend for honeymoon shopping round 2!

    Vent:  trying to pull together all the little details is a bit unnerving right now.  The latest moment of crazy has to do with how family will be getting to the venue since some are OOT and are not renting a car, FMIL now wants to have her hair/makeup done that day so she will need the car to drive to her appointment, leaving FFIL, and FMIL's brother/SIL sitting at the hotel with no way of getting to the wedding!   ARRRRRRGH!

    Happy:  Today I was given a bonus at work (although I knew it was coming, was still a great thing to have it in my hand, and cash no less).  I had a coworker tell me how much I have helped her become a better leader and manager and how thankful she is to have me there to support her.  I had a FANTASTIC session with my therapist and left feeling great (as I usually do).  In just over a week, my brothers will be here for the wedding and in just 2 short weeks, I will be MARRIED!!!! :)

    Vent: I am finished with all the stuff I need to do for grad school, but still have 2 weeks where I just need to coast---but I am so done with it that it feels like it is dragging on and I just want to be with FI (who is living in another state). Also...2 days until the due date for the RSVP...and still waiting on half of the people invited to get their groove together.

    Happy: Picking up my wedding dress in exactly one week from alterations! I finished grading all my papers a day early! (for a 7th grade teacher with so many grammar tests--this is a BIG deal)

    Also 1 month away tomorrow!

    Vent: I try to cushion the tension between my family and FI's family, so I end up taking all (or most - FI tries to take some) of the heat.

    Happy: two dozen days and the wedding will be over and I'll be married to FI and our families will have much less contact, resulting in much less heat! hah
