  • So cute! Congrats on your puppy My golden Callie is having some allergy issues right now... she's in the cone of shame. (older picture in the same cone... today she looked much grumpier)
  • Last year we were invited to 10 weddings (one ended up getting cancelled) and did not attend two of them. One was a PPD in my coworker's home country (we had only been working together for 6 months at the time) and the other one was in Connecticut a…
  • @nicolemarie1985 if it makes you feel any better, my great aunt sends holiday cards to my aunt and uncle as "Marc and wife." They have been married almost 15 years. 
  • I'm not really new, but I mostly just lurk! 1) What is your favorite type of cheese? I just love cheese (except feta). Top three would be (in no particular order): brie, chevre, and sharp cheddar 2) How do you feel about mayonnaise?  Not a f…
  • I once got a couple of my lab coats back with my name spelled "Behtnay" and now the entire lab calls me by that nickname.
  • That would be the fastest I ever RSVP 'NO' to a wedding...
  • Everything listed above sounds delicious! I actually made it last night, but I'm having a soba noodle dish w/ veggies + edamame and homemade peanut sauce. I finished off the last of my peanut butter last night, so here's a bonus picture of my dog …
  • I would say definitely go for the built-in cups! I had them added to my dress (it's got a keyhole back) and I couldn't be happier to not have to worry about doing the strapless bra dance lol (I'm a 32C for reference). Plus, keep in mind that your dr…
  • These are mine! I can't wait to wear them. 
  • I'm doing okay on wedding motivation. But as excited as I am for the wedding, I am way more pumped for him to finish his PhD and for us to live in the same state again.
  • I'm feeling pretty good about where we are right now. Our invitations are here and I've mostly put them together! Tomorrow I'm having my (hopefully last) dress fitting (with my Spanx for the first time, I'm pumped to see how the dress looks with the…
  • I think you are making a big deal out of nothing.  While you have a right to your own feelings of self-consciousness, you cannot dictate the height of your bridesmaids shoes because of it. I'm a little self-conscious about how beautiful my FSIL is (…
  • You are most certainly not the crazy one- she is being very inconsiderate of you, your budget, and your time. 
  • It is certainly not rude.  Sure, people may not be able to attend due to time/money constraints of travel, but that's a decision for your guests to each make. We're getting married in St. Louis, where I live- my FI lives 3 hours away where he's in s…
  • We're one week after you @novella1186 ! I just picked up our invitations (rented a mailbox @ the UPS store for wedding stuff)- they're from Minted! I scored 25% off vouchers for them on Cyber Monday and I'm really happy with how they turned out.  I …
  • My one tip (my Aunt gave me this) is to ask if the food served at your tasting will be the same size and plating style at the actual event day-of.  If so, make sure to take pictures of how the dishes are presented. A friend of my aunt recently ran i…
  • I think I need to switch back to Carmex and/or regular Burt's Bees...  I had really chapped lips last week so I thought I'd try something new. I bought Aquaphor and Blistex oitment. Sadly one (or both... I've been using them both in the same time …
  • The power was out at work this morning so I got some Christmas shopping done and now I'm watching tv while the pup lays on my lap. Hopefully when I call back at 11 the power will still be out and we'll all get a freebie day off!
  • I really, really want to eat cheese and crackers but I need to wait for my nails to dry first.
  • Sending so many good thoughts and hugs your way. 
  • Leftovers from what I made last night: garlic & parmesean wheat berry salad with roasted broccoli and a spinach salad.  Making Andes mint chip cookies tonight for my work's holiday lunch tomorrow so I'll have a quality control check at least o…
  • I'm not sure these will show up right? (I just attached them) Feel free to tell me the right way to add pictures.  But here's my golden Callie
  • SCREEN NAME: bumbletiger88 RELATIONSHIP STATUS: engaged- getting married 5/9/15 WHERE ARE YOU FROM? Memphis. Currently living in St. Louis WHERE IS YOUR SO FROM?  Austin, TX WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK? I'm a food scientist at an ingredient company…
  • I had my makeup trial and had my hair cut (it was due for it anyway) both that day. We also did 2 outfit types: one on the fancier side (local brewery) and the other more relaxed (plus we were in the park with our dog) Choose things that you feel …
  • Great Lakes Christmas Ale!
  • I've mostly lurked for a while, but hello everyone! Ages of you and Fi: 25/26 How long you've been together: Our 3 year anniversary was back in August Professions: I'm a food applications chemist and he's finished his PhD in engineering Any fu…
  • It's actually leftovers from what I made last night- but a pumpkin soup w/ bacon and Parmesan and a spinach salad w/ artichokes, campari tomatoes, and zucchini! 
  • So my mom's half of the family is Jewish and celebrates Hanukkah and my dad's is Presbyterian and celebrates Christmas... my brother's birthday is November 28th and mine is December 26th so there are a lot of gift giving occasions coming up!  On m…
  • @sugargirl1019 I am in the same boat as you. I've been at this company for about a year and a half and I was pretty shocked when I discovered on my first day at the benefits presentation that birth control isn't covered for any medical reason.  It's…
  • Try using some ice (make sure to wrap it in a paper towel or something first- don't put ice directly on your skin). Icing it should help to reduce swelling/redness. Feel better
