You know, the only thing on my mind lately has been weddings. I even dream about weddings - some very bizarre dreams at that. In one dream I was insisting on wearing a poodle skirt (sans poodle at the very least) with matching shoes and my mom would not hear of it and we were arguing over this horrible wedding ensemble, which I would never wear anyway, but it was the principle of the matter, darn it! It's my wedding and I'm doing what I want and if that means wearing a poodle skirt rather than a dress, so be it. :p
I did, however, only now think about one very important thing. I might die of heat in my dress. I wasn't exactly thinking outside wedding when I was choosing my dress and I have no idea if our venue is air-conditioned or not. One can only hope, otherwise we're going to need to bring fans, I think. I'll only get to dress up like this once, though, so I want to do it up and hopefully with enough clinical strength antipersperent and expensive makeup - I'll hold up. ;)

Hooray, the next set of Penguin Classics is out including Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!  I'm considering purchasing them as a wedding expense and using them as part of the decor... our theme is pretty random as it is. :p

Wedding Fail #1

Well, my first wedding fail is done and over with, so lets hope there aren't too many more. Apparently I'm more scatter-brained than I realized and did a pretty big boo-boo as a result. I was looking over the flight itenerary I booked for our photographer and realized I had booked his flight for the wrong month!! I booked his flight for June rather than July. None of us caught it either. I looked at the thing several times before confirming and apparently I had Daniel & Crystal's wedding dates in mind rather than my own, so I just didn't catch it and nothing looked wrong. So... I now have to call and get it fixed, and the flights available are crap, more expensive, and it'll cost us $150 just to change the tickets. Sigh. I really hope I can manage to not make any more costly mistakes in the next few months.

Oh my.... yay!

Okay, these are simply too fabulous!! Now if only my pocketbook could justify purchasing them at that price....

It was one of those mornings where I was kind of rushing around... flustered somewhat after it took me another 10 mintues to try and put my eyes in my head. I'm amazed I haven't torn or lost them yet, to be honest. Yesterday morning I was attempting to put a contact in when I dropped it and the thing fell on Uzi's back, which actually probably saved the thing and made it super easy to find. Thankfully he stood still and I managed to grab it.

Anyway, I was rushing around this morning and hastily making myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (yes, I'm 6) and Josh was by the sink and he looked over at me and smiled and kind of chuckled, so I asked him, "What?" and he said he had a "Heather moment." Hmm? He said watching me make my sandwich made him imagine us in the future when we have kids. I'll most likely be rushing around still, only with a row of bread lined up. :p It sent me off to work with a smile. I often have those moments where I'll be watching him and imagine our future family (hence the "Heather moment"). Ah, bliss.

On another note - hooray wedding dress! It is here, and currently hiding in our closet in a garbage bag. :p Yeah, yeah, I forgot to buy a garment bag, so one is on the way. Ha ha.

March Already!?

After several years, I have finally decided to give contact lenses a go. It's day 3 and things are still a bit odd - a litte blurry and I feel like I have something in my eye - oh wait, I do have something in my eye! I think I'm progressing - it only took 10 minutes to get the little buggers in this morning. I also found a much better technique when it comes to taking them out than what I was shown. I tried the way everyone told me until I literally couldn't force myself to keep my eyes open and they were bright red, and then I tried this other method, and out they popped! Thank you handy dandy pamphlet! Considering that up until a week ago it would take at least two people to get eye drops into my eye, I'd say this huge progress. I was getting tired of glasses (getting smudged, glares, fogging up in cold weather) and I don't want to wear glasses when we get married, so I'm determined to make the contact lenses work. I'm nearsighted, but without glasses, I could barely read the E at the top of eye chart, so I require aid when driving, and if I just want to be able to see people, which is kind of nice to be able to do. :p So hooray and here's to sticking foreign objects in one's eye!

Other than that this weekend, we did some wedding shopping and picked up some items for the reception. Thank you, Ikea! Aside from a mini panic attack due to getting completely turned around in major crowds, I think it went quite well. I definitely don't like the layout of the store, though. Oh well, it ended up being a good trip, and I'm sure we'll be back. Even though some things are really cheaply made, they do have a lot of what seem to be high quality items as well. Sadly, when we move we will no longer be in close distance to one. Yay roadtrip! Now if we only had a vehicle with more trunk space... :p
