Whomp, Whomp

Whomp, whomp, a Tuesday rainy and dreary day here, typical.  Glad you all enjoyed the few photos from my wedding weekend in Wisconsin.  If anything, the trip solidified my desire to have a destination wedding somewhere fun and tropical.  It was nice having everyone at the wedding staying in the same resort, mine and Darren’s room even connected to some of the other guests.  Less stress, less people, more fun for everyone!

A few things to answer that were addressed in the comments section:

  1. Ya’ll are too kind about my hair, seriously!  Thank you for the compliments, and I too am loving being back to my dark roots.
  2. Yes, the bride did in fact show up to the reception 5 hours later still in her wedding dress.  As far as I know, she had it on all day because Dar didn’t even make it back to our hotel room until 4 pm.
  3. My nude pumps are Colin Stuart, via Victoria’s Secret.  For 4.5 inch heels they were surprisingly comfortable, and I had no problems in them.  I did take them off once I got drunk and wanted to dance though.  They can be found here.
  4. My dress I scored super cheap at the BCBG outlet, and I felt like I belonged on Mad Men in it.  Which you probably guessed, made me very happy.  It was also fun to twirl in.
  5. Someone thinks he needs to buy a house to live in before buying a diamond, so as much fun as a proposal in the near future would be, I’m placing bets on Spring 2012 sometime.  As Dar told the woman helping us Sunday, it took him 6 months to decide to spend $800 on a pressure washer, soooo…
  6. There is no six, but I hate ending on an odd number.

Somehow I made it through my word day yesterday without falling asleep, it was a miracle.  I did not, however, get a workout in.  Those will resume today, hopefully.  My night was not very exciting either.  It involved crawling into my bed at 7 pm and watching a few hours of Mad Men before passing out.  It also involved a lot of text messages to Darren about how much our situation sucks.  The first few days home after a visit are always the worst… whomp, whomp.

Luckily I have another busy weekend ahead of me to keep my mind off of it.  My good friend Michelle is having her bridal shower/bachelorette party this weekend and I am pumped.  I haven’t seen my friends from home since I was there at Easter, so this should be a lot of fun.  Another exhausting weekend of travel, but worth it.

I hope you all have a lovely day.  Bye.


Make a wish!  Haha I’m one of the dorks that always makes a wish if I catch the clock at 11:11, so hopefully today will be full of good luck and wish making.  So thanks to everyone yesterday for their positive and wonderful comments, if not for you guys I probably would have been drinking by noon.  Some of my real life friends were not nearly as supportive, and were actually kind of judgmental and harsh.  So yeah, yesterday was rough, as can be expected when you’re getting yelled and cursed at all day.  Here’s to hoping today is better.

Needless to say, by the time the end of the day rolled around, I was more than ready to head home and hit the bottle.  I managed to talk myself into a run, thinking that would help get rid of some of the negative energy.  It helped, a little.  I still went home after the gym and made a vodka and soda.  Nothing notable about the work out, 3.2 miles, 10 minutes on the stair mill.

Something that is notable, apparently I am completely incapable of tending to a fire without burning the shit out of myself.

Yes, those are three burns, all in a row.  I have no idea, someone keep me away from the fireplace.  Today, I will be sitting at my desk and staring out the window waiting for it to start snowing, and listening to the country music radio station because it is commercial free Tuesday.  And I’m an emotional cutter.

I don’t really have much to say today, still kind of in a crappy mood.  So, instead leave me some suggestions of things I must see and do in Chicago in March.  Already mentally noted is Deep Dish pizza.  Enjoy your Tuesday.
