Who Knew?

A good chunk of side effects related to "the pill"
are ridiculously similar to those of pregnancy.
Who knew?

For the past three days
I have been super sensitive to smell,
sleepier than normal.
and certain *parts* are ridiculously sore.

Oh, the irony.

I suppose birth control not only prevents the babies,
but gives you a glimpse of the heck you'll go through 
if you abandon contraception.

45 more days folks!

Teacher's Lounge

Meet my nemesis.
One row alone would knock out an entire week's worth of WW points.

Lead me not into temptation and deliver me from carbs and excess sugar. Amen.

I didn't forget!

Hey ladies, remember THIS post?

Well- I'm still working on the handmade goodies. 
Sorry for the SUPER long wait. 
Hopefully it will be worth it!

1st shower was a success.

I have so many amazing women in my life. 
(whose thank you cards are ALREADY in the mail. Booya!)

p.s. Mom's camera + dark lighting = not the best pictures.

Problem Solved

Dream dress has been purchased.
AND it only needed to be altered a TINY bit,
so they will have it done before 
my bridals at the beginning of May.

:) Seriously. It's perfect.
The feeling I've been waiting for has finally hit me.
Holy cow, guys-
I'm getting married.

Someone pinch me,

Call me crazy

Well, it's official.
My wedding dress is listed on Craigslist.
(edit: I also listed it on Wedding Bee, Once Wed,
100 Layer Cake,  and preownedweddingdresses.com)
Two months until the big day and I'm getting a new dress.
Yes, I'm well aware that I'm crazy.
But having put it on several times over the past 5 months,
I just know that I was silly to purchase it as early as I did.
(Which was TWO WEEKS before I even got engaged. I know- I'm an idiot.)

That being said,
say a little prayer,
cross your fingers,
in hopes that I 
1. can sell my dress and get at least a little money back
and 2. can find "the" dress. The real one. 
One that actually makes me want to walk down the aisle 
and not cry in the corner of the brides room. 

Crazy, but completely okay with it,

Got a great Saturday morning brewing?

Dear Wednesday

Dear Wednesday,

You were ridiculously long. My heart, as well as my body, was worn out by 11am. Thank you for the lessons learned, but could I have a break next week? I'm not sure I can handle more than 1 day like this a month.

However, I did appreciate your peace offering this evening. Coffee and conversation with my bestie? Golly gee- I guess you realized just how cruel you had been. Consider yourself forgiven.

Exhausted, but content,

What the?

I think there's something wrong with me.
I was having a great night.
Dinner with mom,
the Rangers AND the Thunder won.
Like I said, great night.

And then BAM.
1. Came home to find my wedding hair piece destroyed. Thanks, Sawyer. See if I blog about you ever again. (Who am I kidding? I'll forgive him tomorrow morning when he comes in for his pre-work snuggles)
2. The hair piece destruction made me remember how uneasy I felt after my wedding hair trial run. I just don't like her ideas. She didn't get my vision. Homegirl wanted me to get a weave. No thanks.
3. After dwelling on that for a bit, I sat down and decided to test out my own hair abilities. Fail.
4. Crazy girl hormones took over and convinced me that I will look okay on my wedding day. Just okay. Bah- I want to be breathtaking. I'm not that girl usually. I don't cause a scene or turn heads. But for one day, just one freakin day, I want to be. Is that too much to ask?

*now look- I know that come June 11th, it'll all fall into place and that Tim will think I'm beautiful regardless of my hair, dress, acne, whatever. But right now- with the guy I love 4 hours away and my hair seemingly hopeless- it's hard to believe that.

Is it normal to just get tired of the details? The planning? I'm just ready to be married. The whole wedding/honeymoon is really getting me down for NO apparent reason. The tiniest thing causes tears. Honestly- what the heck is wrong with me?

Thanks, blogosphere, for being a place I can rant.

puppy love

Regardless of how rough or long my day has been,
coming home to this makes it all better.

My 1st Saturday Morning Scene

Crawled out of bed for just a minute
and came back to find this. 
My precious 7 year old nephew,
watching old school episodes of Transformers on my DVR.

Anything going on this beautiful, Saturday morning?
