Wedding Wednesday: It was supposed to be a simple wedding
Have you seen the Sex and the City movie? If you haven't and you don't want to know anything that happens in it, stop reading. Do you remember how Carrie and Big (dumbest nickname ever, I think) were originally planning to have a simple wedding at City Hall with only their closest friends in attendance? But then all of a sudden Big opens the paper and their engagement announcement is plastered all over Page Six (I think it's an important page which is why it gets capital letters), they've invited like, 300 people, they're having the wedding at the New York City Library (is that what it's called?), and Carrie is going to wear a huge poofy ball gown made by THE Vivienne Westwood herself. Big is like, "....how did this happen???" And Carrie is like, "IDK man but Imma put an entire bird on my head now."
I feel like that's what's happening with our wedding. I was truly planning on having a simple wedding. I was going to wear an inexpensive white bridesmaid dress, I was going to do all the flowers myself (baby's breath and pink roses or something), I was going to make our cutting cake myself and let everyone else eat Costco sheet cake, there would be a maximum of 100 people... it was going to be simple and small.
Then I got the ring and the universe was all...
And like tbh I don't even know how it happened. IT JUST DID. I tried to buy an inexpensive white bridesmaid dress but then I went dress shopping and this other dress LITERALLY jumped off the hanger and onto my body and forced me to buy it. And then my dad and I met with a florist who has done the flowers for my parents' church for like, ever, and she showed me dahlias and I didn't know what dahlias looked like but now that I do I'm like... whoa, BEAUTIFUL. And she showed me "stock" which is a really pretty filler flower that now I love more than baby's breath. And like one minute we were talking about corsages for the grandmas and then she was like "Oh and obviously you'll need to have giant pillars and vases up by the gazebo with you two, otherwise it will be way too blah," and I was just like... "Uh huh yes you're so right."
Our honeymoon was going to be pretty simple too, like we were going to spend 7-10 days in one place probably, and just relax, but THEN Keith started googling. And NOW our honeymoon is turning into possibly being a 2 week long romp to like, Greece, Istanbul, Ephesus, and Stockholm, and there might be a hot air balloon ride thrown in there somewhere because WHY NOT?
And let's not even get started on how I really need to lose three fifteen pounds but I've been doing a LOT of stress eating and I can't get enough ice cream or Cheez Its and it's beginning to be a problem.
Also I've been having trouble sleeping because I've been finding one giant wolf spider a night roaming about my home. Yeah you heard me: a WOLF SPIDER. Don't google that. Just DON'T do it. I warned you.
So that's what I have for you today. We're almost at the 3 month mark and I've started to freak out, and I know that because I have pimples on my forehead, and for me forehead pimples = stress pimples.
My questions for YOU are:
What are some good stress relievers?
Have you ever planned something (a wedding or anything else) that ended up being way bigger/more elaborate than you originally intended?
Where can I buy the wine that is calorie free?
Why do I have a receding hair line?
I bet you think that one ^^^ is a joke but it's not.
