Wedding rant.

We are getting so tight on our guest list for chair/plate numbers.

Today one of Willy’s coworkers RSVP’d for himself and his girlfriend…and their three kids. We weren’t planning him to bring their kids…we can’t really say they can’t either because there will be kids there…

Now ANOTHER one of his coworkers RSVP’d for himself and his wife…then TWO FRIENDS they apparently decided was cool to bring as well. No. That is NOT okay. We do not know them and they will know plenty of other coworkers there anyway, so not like they’re gonna be alone. Willy needs to talk to them and tell him we can’t accommodate their friends as well.

Most of Willy’s coworkers (which equals about 80ish with their plus one) are the last bunch we haven’t really heard from so we’re only guessing who would go…not including any kids they feel they deserve to bring, let alone a couple of friends. I’m freaking out that if they all feel this way, we need to bump up our plate/chair numbers.

We’re already pinching pennies for paying 250 plates.

The guest list has actually grown to 300 now…but about 60 have declined (or we’re 90% sure wouldn’t come anyway). BUT these numbers aren’t including all the dumb kids (no offense to any parents), or extra friends we have no idea who they are (unless he/she is your date).

I want this crap over. It’s starting to suck all the fun out of this.

It is 1:40am

And I’m awake.

Wedding stress keeps me from sleep, yet another night.

This is getting ridiculous. I feel like once a week now I stay up almost all night as my brain goes 1,000 mph over one or two situations and I’m freaking out about how, and if it’s gonna work out.

I’m the kind of person who stresses very, very easy. This is why all my wedding planning was like a month ahead. I need to have a plan and I need to know the worst case scenario so I can have a plan B and a plan C…even if it’s months in advance. I need to know things yesterday.

I’m really glad I have a lot of stuff already done though, and even more glad I’m currently unemployed. This stress and lack of sleep would legit kill me by the wedding.

Anyone awake? I can only look at the same posts and statuses for so long tonight!

After my traumatizing event in the closet this morning with the roach in my shoe…Willy had to pull out my clothes for me and these shoes were the only pair that weren’t in the closet (because that roach ruined all my shoes in the closet for the next few days)…except the pair that were homing the roach. 

Guess I’m walking with attitude today. 

Boy, am I glad Willy was off today. Not gonna lie….I was wearing nothing but my undies when I ran out of the closet for my life, screaming and flying for the bed. I probably would’ve stayed in just my undies the rest of the day because I refuse to step foot in my closet any time soon. Luckily, Willy was brave for me and got me clothes for the day!

Good morning to you too.

I showered this morning. Then go to my closet to put clothes on…I slip on a pair of flats cause I hate being barefoot cause my feet feel dirty…I feel something in my shoe so I take it off…and a roach runs out. I HATE ROACHES.

Time to burn down our closet.

What a way to start Friday.

Quinoa Pizza Crust

epicureanbodybuilder:

My new pizza crust is made from nothing more than quinoa, water, and salt. The quinoa makes the crust slightly nutty and also gives it a good crunch. 

 *Note* You’ll have to soak the grains for at least 8 hours before baking

Yay! Fastest mile! But that’s mainly cause I didn’t start timing till after my warm up walk. Soooo not sure how much “faster” it was today than usual. 

But still….yay! Now I know I can do (at least) one mile in under 10 minutes! 

Time to cool off and I think I’ll get a quick round of yoga in!

20 Mind-Boggling Shower Thoughts [showerthoughts/distractify]

Previously: Name Improvements for Everyday Stuff

These broke me.

Totally digging my hair lately. It’s getting long and flowy. 

I really wish I could afford to color my hair once more before the wedding. It’s supposed to be my natural color…but the dye to cover up my previous red hair has faded to this. And I’m terrified to attempt the at-home color-from-a-box dye. NO THANK YOU. 

Maybe I’ll find some money on the street and can afford to color it again :D

This is why we can’t have nice things!!

Not really but still….

Before I run with my pups, I always make sure their water bowl is full of water. BUT This is what this dog does after I take her to run. She comes back, takes three sips of water, then splashes it ALL OVER. 

She needs her own pool just for her post runs. 


Finally got my butt outta bed this morning to run 3 miles (yay!). It had been maybe two weeks since I last ran. I’m debating about doing some yoga now…buuuut I wanna shower…

So I’ll promise myself, AND YOU GUYS, I will do some yoga later today :)

Personal vent

Willy and I argue more than all my previous relationships combined.

I’ve never had so many fights with one person.

But I look back and realize most of my previous boyfriends weren’t as stubborn or, lack of a better word, loud.

I used to worry about our kids seeing us fight. But we don’t argue like we used to. And second, we manage to get over our arguments fairly quick (most of the time). I hope our children learn that from us. That it’s okay to fight every now and then…but what’s important is mommy and daddy love each other and always will.

We’ve had so many arguments about wedding stuff. Mainly coming from the stress of it all. I keep reminding him that we need to remember we’re on the same team, and will be for the rest of our lives. We can’t be fighting against each other because were stronger as one union.

We’re in a…situation right now. But seriously…I’ve been asking him to get the addresses of two people to mail the invites for 6 months now…and he still hasn’t given the last one to me. SERIOUSLY. One of the few full responsibilities I’ve asked of him and he can’t do it. The RSVP date is only one week away. Almost pointless to send it but the guest knows of the wedding and that he’s invited…but I didn’t hand make ONE HUNDRED FIFTY invitations just if you FEEL like getting the damn address. This guest is someone that has been important to Willy’s career and I personally would love him at our wedding too.

I love him but sometimes I wanna kick him in the head.

In other news, my wedding dress is home!!
