The other day I was asked if I was keeping a wedding blog and I was like psh... no! I'm too good for that. More like Psh.. no, who would read that shit? I have nothing to say.
But I was sitting here working on some decorative stuff and it dawned on me hmm... I'm not a cutesy kinda gal, but damnit if these things aren't cute as all get out. Good thing I'm having a wedding that way I can get away with making this cute stuff without vomitting on my shoes.
Then it dawned on me... hmm... THAT should be my wedding blog... reasons it is cool to have a wedding. Not reasons why it is cool to get married and oh, I'm so in love with John, eye batting, our history, blah blah blah. But reasons why the wedding itself will be cool. And the planning for it.
So, I've got two reasons to add to that list tonight.
1. I get to make cutesy girly stuff that I'd probably deny myself in other aspects of my life.
2. When else can you drink champagne 3 times a week and call it "research" for finding the right one.

I've come up with this brilliant idea of I'm going to set a ten minute timer before I give up on life for the day. During those ten minutes, I have to clean, clean, clean! No getting sidetracked, no checking e-mail, nor facebook, just putting crap away!
I hope it helps. We're messy mo-fos. Not really, we just work 12 hours a day, then come home and want to crash for a bit until it is time to go to bed. Too bad that "for a bit" turns into "until we go to bed."
and yes, this blog was a perfect example of how my life gets sucked away in the vacuum that is the internet.

I know you guys (all 2 of you who read my blog) are spending your days sitting around thinking about how the wedding crafts are turning out. Well, today is your lucky day!
The freakin' ribbon is falling off of all of the damn candles posted below. I had originally used glue dots, but that is proving to not be the best choice, so... I'm having to go back and re-do the 20 something that I had finished. This time I'm using a high-temp hot glue gun. I've fixed about a dozen of them and I'll wait a while to see how these hold up.
It is certainly a pain in the arse, but at least I found out before i wrapped all 250 of them! Or even worse if I had done them all, then put them away until July when I took them out for the friggin' wedding UGH!
Anyway, that's my update.
Here's a link for those of you who like more than words:
Imagine me here
What's even cooler is that I'm pretty sure the all inclusive aspect comes with an awesome set of abs.

ABC has this show called What Would You Do?
Here's my answer... I'd kill a bitch.
they set up all these social experiments and see how people react to them like a dude putting some sort of drug in his date's drink, cutting in line at the grocery store with 400 items etc.
Then tonight, they put a "baby" in a hot, locked car. They used a doll of course, but people got pretty riled up called the police etc. Then they show what's coming up next... a golden retriever in a car. First of all, that sure doesn't look like a fake golden, so these abc folks had better show me a hidden air conditioner pretty quick. Secondly... DON'T MESS WITH THE PUPPIES. Or the babies.
I'm pretty sure I'll end up on this show at some point in my life. But it might not be really this show. It might just be me beating the crap out of some ignorant person who has pissed me off.
BE NICE PEOPLE! Or I will hurt you.
ps... is that not THE saddest dog picture you've ever seen?

These are what we're going to pass out as favors at the wedding. I'm completely obsessed with these black and ivory patterned papers. So far I've completed about 30 or so candles and I've wrapped 140 in paper and all that's left is adding the ribbon. At this moment, I don't have any two that are the same, we'll see how quickly the creativity and inspiration runs out.
I'm so not ready to go back to school tomorrow. I have thoroughly enjoyed the last 2 weeks of vacation and I am not ready to give it up yet. I wish we at least had a day before the kids came, but nope, we're going back full force starting with all the rug rats.
I've been pretty productive with stuff around the house and wedding planning, but I know that's going to have to stop once I'm gone 10+ hours a day. There's just something about waking up at 5:30 and listening to 5 year olds scream all day all the while trying to teach them how to read (in the five minutes between assessments) that just doesn't make me want to come home and clean house or cook or work on crafty wedding stuff. It just makes me want to come home and sleep!
