Dear Sous, Bri, & Liv,

2 days until RDR takes Boston <3

Dear H,

Thank you for not hating doing the dishes. It's my least favorite of all the chores and I'm so grateful that you don't mind doing them. Even when you just worked for 12 hours and your lazy wife is tipsy on the couch watching a TV show about high schoolers. You're the best ever and I love you.

Dear wedding photog,

    Dear Body,

    When you're tired and hungry, the correct answer is FOOD and SLEEP. Not bursting into tears at 11 o'clock at night and going on an hour-long crying jag when you have to get up early again the next day. Please pull yourself together.

    Love,
    I swear I am still a toddler in so many ways

    Dear BF,

    Thank you for being snuggly and extra-kind the other night when I was overwhelmed and flipping out. It helped a lot. I will miss you while you're on your business trip! (But maybe that will help me not be so tired all the time, no?)

    Love,
    Your girlfriend who just wants to hibernate sometimes

  • Dear FI,

    Our first session of premarital counseling is tonight. I know you're nervous but this couple is extremely awesome and laid back. You will feel so much better after this evening.

    Love you,
    Your FI

    Dear client,

    Please give my candidates offer letters. They are awesome and I'm tired of searching for your jobs.

  • Dear me,
    Great job bouncing back from Sunday's ER escapade. A run yesterday and boot camp today have you feeling like a million bucks. Even if the scale isn't budging, you're doing awesome!

    Dear DH,
    I'm sorry. I gave it two years to fall in love with my e-ring and it just hasn't happened. I don't know why I feel like I 'need' a solitaire, but I just do. Please understand that apparently diamonds are my new 'thing'...so you spend your money on bikes and stuff, I'll spend mine on jewelry. Love you!

    Love,
    Your loving wife who is apparently very vain and traditional

    ========

    Dear society,
    What the everloving fuck. Why do you make men feel like they have to SURPRISE their future FIs with an engagement ring rather than getting their input and stamp of approval. It's so messed up when it's the woman who has to wear it every day. Get over yourselves and get with the 21st century.

    No love,
    Victim of tradition

    Dear work,
    I love you.

  • Dear crazy brides on the knot,

    Thanks for keeping me entertained during my illness. Please keep it coming. But preferably not on the ney board. I like to keep this one clean.

    -I really wish I could say I wasn't on anti nausea pills right now

    Dear body,

    Fi is sick of you being sick. So you better feel better once you finish the antibiotics tomorrow. This is not okay. Oh and stomach? You are so rumbly!!

    Dear stomach,

    Could we decide one way or the other how we feel? This just-barely-okay-enough-to-go-to-work thing is getting old. Be sick or be well, but I can't keep this up.

    Dear research system,

    If it's not one thing for you, it's another, huh? Again, figure this out.

    Dear @cu97tiger

    I don't think you're vain or wrong for wanting a solitaire. A nice set looks great and I can see wanting it. I love my e-ring so much, but I almost never wear it because I've had stones fall out and it makes me nervous. Sometimes I also wish I had a solitaire that sits flush with my wedding band. 

    Love, 
    Sympathetic ear 

    Dear Shoulder, 

    Seriously, enough with the hurting. Are you out of the socket a little bit? I have no idea how to fix you. 

    Love, 
    Bring it! 

    Dear Weather, 

    I wore rain boots today. Can we actually get the predicted rain?

    Dear Linds,

    I really hate fighting with you, and I don't want to do it anymore. I'm sorry I flipped out last night when you asked me for the 4th time if I was going to brush Smokey, I just have had it with the entitled princess routine you've adopted lately and leaving all of the chores/work to me. But I realize you brushed the more pain in the ass cat last night, it's only fair I brush the other fucking cat - I'll get to it. Plz to have no awkwardness at mom's later?

    Love, Sousa 1

    Dear Mr Mousey,

    I'm sorry everyone is out for blood right now. After finding your delightful presents in our drawers, people became alarmed. Maybe I shouldn't have told them about you falling out of my overhead cabinet like some kind of fuzzy rain of fury and then squeezing your fat little gray ass into a hole in my desk, but I had to explain why I went "Whattttttt the fuck son," in the middle of a crowded office. Now all I can picture is you hunkered somewhere in the bowels of my office furniture singing "Somewhere Out There" to your little mousey sister in Russia. I'M SORRY FIEVEL!!!

    Love, Inexplicable Animal Guilt Girl

  • @livleighton happy birthday!!!!!! Hope it's a great one with lots of icing!

    Danish Man,

    Fucking thank you for understanding what it means to let me go to Kona, Hawaii to participate in the 18 mile outrigger race on Labor Day Weekend,  I know I'll get to be in paradise while your home with the puppies.  It means a lot to me that you understand and support me.

    Love,
    A very lucky wife.


  • @LivLeighton happy birthday beautiful!!

    Dear mom,

    Thank you for telling me ahead of time when D is visiting. I promised i would take her to Disney, but that requires some saving... So thanks for not making me be a bad sister!!

    Love,
    Big sister that is ecstatic to take her little sister on her first trip to Disney!!

    Dear R,

    You're awesome. Thanks for listening to me bitch about coworkers I want to beat with shoes. Also for sharing my love of hockey, football and good food. Now come college football season we won't speak about it often, because you're a friggin Ohio state fan... I can look past it though.

    Love,

    Dear lyn,

    I'm debating learning to ride a motorcycle. It's been a dream of mine for forever but my exes always had reasons why I couldn't. Well fuck them.

    Suggestions, concerns, tips, advice, etc?

  •  Dear lyn, I'm debating learning to ride a motorcycle. It's been a dream of mine for forever but my exes always had reasons why I couldn't. Well fuck them. Suggestions, concerns, tips, advice, etc? Love, Lady with a motorcycle obsession
    @IrishDreamer,

    Since I was a kid I loved motorcycles.  When I was old enough to buy myself a bike I went for it.  Trust me riding bitch is ok, but I rather be the one in control.  Don't let anyone tell you can't do something.  I understand why people tried to convince me not to ride, for safety reasons.  But I feel if you can stay alert and watch out for preoccupied drivers then you'll have an excellent time. 

    Suggestions: Get your M1 permit, then take the motorcycle safety course which in CA waives the need to test the road test at the DMV.  At the safety class they usually have 250 cc bikes for your to practice on.  Which is a good power level to start off on. 

    Tips: Don't get nervous, breathe and get a feel for the throttle and gear shifter.  ITS OK if you drop the bike, just don't feel intimidated.  ALWAYS wear your gear no matter what.  Just make sure you have the appropriate gear for the weather.  Me, I have a leather riding jacket for cold wear and a perforated textile jacket for summer, boots, gloves and pants as well as a good helmet. 

    Advice: Your first bike buy used.  Go to a bike dealer and sit on bikes, get a feel for them.  Are you comfy on it?  From where you sit and reaching for the bike handles is it too far, is the angle uncomfortable? 

    How tall are you?  I ask cause some bikes sit tall and so you may only reach the ground with one foot.  I"m a little over 5'5 and I was on my tip toes when I was on my Suzuki GSXR 600.  Are you looking for cruiser, sport bike or cafe bike?

    I am more than happy to talk about motorcycles, and my experiences.  So ask away.


  • @motoLyn my ex-BF had a GSXR 600. That's a pretty big bike. I always said if I were going to ride, it would be a Baby Ninja (Kawasaki 250 Ninja). My feet can actually touch the ground.

    @cu97tiger sorry you didn't grow to like your ring. I absolutely agree that picking something without input is a bad idea. I hope you find something you like and share all the pics.

    Crappy Hair-Stylist,

    You screwed up my hair so badly yesterday that the person I went to today to fix it was appalled. What you did isn't even close to what I asked for and I didn't ask you to fix it because you would've just made it worse. It couldn't even be completely  undone because of how much bleach you used in my hair. I will never be coming back and I will be leaving a bad review online - which I have never done before but I'm super pissed.

    please pay yourselves off, like, YESTERDAY, so H and I can start adopting our future babies.

  • @motolyn I am going to start looking into it. I've wanted to do this for forever. I'm 5'3. I like the sport bikes. Riding bitch was ok but I am definitely similar to you in that I want to be in control.

    @CocoBellaF - The guy I went to see today did an excellent job of fixing what could be fixed. I still don't love it but I don't hate it. I was in tears last night because of how horrible it was. And this is totally BSC but if BF is going to propose soon I don't want my hair to look trashy!


  • Dear FI,

    I love that I can call you FI now!  Thank you for putting so much thought into your proposal and my gorgeous ring!  I'm sososo happy and I can't wait to marry you!  I also love that you can't wait to marry me, but I think we may need to stick with our plan for a long engagement so that we can actually afford it without going to the poor house--I sorry we're not rich :(

    Love you to the moon and back,
    FI

  • @bethsmiles - I'm glad that it is fixed!  maybe in a few weeks you can do something else to fix it some more?  I don't ever get my hair done, so I'm not sure how all that works (how soon you can go again).  I'm sure you look great, but I can't blame you for feeling self-conscious! 
  • @belle2188 a three year hiatus? That sounds like a ridiculously long time for no visits from Aunt Flo.  Just enjoy the engagement :)  And yea, the wedding venues that don't reply?  Forget about them.  That's how I weeded down my list of potential wedding venues, haha

    I'm not sure what my options are but my mom has a good friend who is a stylist so I might give her a call to see what she thinks.


  • @cschiano @leia1979 Thanks for the kind words! I do love my e-ring... but not as an everyday ring :(

    @livleighton I am giving myself 20 mins to 'play' at work, so I'm going to start a new thread to AW some styles I'm thinking about

    My BCP made it go away completely, which was scary at first but after reassurance from my doctor it became really convenient.  Really I wouldn't mind if I didn't feel like complete shit, but these cramps are so bad that I'm starting to get the shakes...

    As far as the venues, it's not so much that they aren't getting back to me, it's more that they "can't" tell me how much it's going to cost without me coming in, but I guess you're right, if they're really that annoying about it I probably don't want to work with them anyway!
