Hi there! Happy Monday to you! This is a super short work week for me as I’m sure it is for most of you as well. I have work today and then on Tuesday and Wednesday, we have off. Then I work Thursday and Friday. It will be nice to have a 2 day break in the middle of the week. Although, I think I would have rather had Thursday off as opposed to Tuesday but I don’t want to be greedy. I’m just thankful that they gave us 2 days off altogether. That was nice of them.
So how was your weekend? Did you melt? It was/is SO incredibly hot! I don’t know how much I can take this excessive heat. It makes it extremely hard to breathe outside. I hate running the air conditioning so much too because it’s expensive and when driving it wastes a lot of gas which is also expensive. It’s supposed to be hot the rest of the week and then I hope it cools down. I’m hating how hot it is.
So I’ll recap my weekend for you. On Friday, Mike and I rushed around like crazy people to get our wedding invitations out. It was the fault of the calligrapher why we were sending them out so late. I wanted people to start getting them on Saturday. I think only a small group of people got them and I’m thinking the rest will arrive today. I worked so incredibly hard on them with our graphic designer and the rest of the invitation was diy. So I’m hoping people appreciate it and will say how they feel about it. I think it would hurt my feelings a lot if no one had anything to say. I really worked hard and I am so proud of them. They turned out exactly how I am imagined. I hope people can see how hard that I worked on them and appreciate them. It hurts more when you don’t say anything at all especially if we are close with you.
When that was over with, we just ate the rest of the rotisserie chicken for dinner and spent the rest of the night catching up on some dvr shows. On Saturday, Mike woke up early to go to the gym and in turn, I couldn’t sleep the rest of the morning. I woke up after he left and did some wedding related things in our house. I got a decent amount of stuff done. We then we out and ran some errands that we needed to get done. We had to get some signs printed for our wedding and purchase frames for them. They turned out amazing! We will be returning to Kinko’s soon but at least we got some things out of the way. The employee was super helpful there!
We came home and relaxed before deciding to go to Bertucci’s for dinner. We had part of a gift card left and a coupon. We figured, why not? We both ordered the Grilled Chicken Marsala which is excellent! I absolutely love it from there.
After dinner, we watched Friends With Benefits that we found On-Demand. I actually think that Justin Timberlake is a pretty good actor. The movie was funny and it was a lot better than the other movie that was similar with Anne Hathaway in it. I hated that movie and we couldn’t even finish watching it, it was so bad. I actually liked Friends with Benefits though. I am not a huge Mila Kunis fan but I do like Justin Timberlake. What is the last movie you watched?
On Sunday, Mike and I spent 4 hours sitting at the computer figuring out music for our reception. You would think after sitting there for 4 hours we would be done? Not so much! We still need to pick about 47 songs that we want played during various parts of the reception. We made great progress on choosing songs the bridal party are walking into, cutting the cake, bouquet toss, garter associated songs, our first dance, the parent dances, etc. I am really proud of us! We are accomplishing one thing after another and it’s taking a load of stress off of me.
Although, we are still super stressed. Weddings are supposed to be filled with happiness and joy. It’s supposed to be celebrated and be the happiest time of our life. Sadly, things have been happening one after another that have made it really difficult to feel that way. I think that it’s a wonderful thing that Mike and I found each other and have spent the last almost 7 years happy together. I care for him so deeply and love him so incredibly much. He is my best friend and my soul mate. I couldn’t picture a life without him. I am so happy to walk down that aisle to him and finally call him my husband and make our relationship legal. I don’t know why there is negativity that comes with weddings. If people are happy then you should be happy. There is no need to argue or cause problems. It’s a happy moment that should be celebrated and I am a firm believer in that.
I don’t take marriage lightly as divorce is in my family. So once I am married, that is how I want to stay. It’s not about how many people show up to your wedding. It’s about the people who are there celebrating two people madly in love making their relationship legal. That is what I believe.
Sorry for running on a tangent there but I feel the need to vent. This is my blog after all.
Oh, before I go, I’ll leave you with a picture of my dinner from last night. My belly didn’t appreciate it but it did taste yummy.
Have a great Monday!
