I am trying to refrain from blogging about wedding planning, but to be honest, it is really hard. Especially since it is all I think about.
Next on my to do list: book the reception venue and photographer and find my dress. I think I have them all nailed down, well except the dress. I know what dress I want, I just need to try it on to make sure it is really the one. I just haven’t had the time to do that, plus Mom really wants to go with (which I want her there too), but she has been out of town.
I must say we are obviously WAY ahead of schedule on getting things taken care of. I pretty much know what kind of flowers I would like to use, what our stationary would look like and have an idea of what I want the cake to look like. I am not going to spend too much time fretting over it now, seeing has we still have a year and a half. I am sure I will jump the gun and get it taken care of early or at least inquire now about different vendors.
On another note, I really have been racking my brain for something thoughtful to blog about and I have nothing. So for your readers, you’re probably going to be getting wedding blogs for now.
So I thought I knew a lot about food, and I mean a lot. Most people know that I am secretly an aspiring chef, so for me to come across something I have never heard of in the food world is strange.
So, I’m watching “Throwdown with Bobby Flay” on the Food Network and the challenge was Moules Frites (Mussels and fries). I don’t know, but that just sounds like the strangest of combinations. Mussels and fries? Really? Burger and fries, yes. But, mussels and fries?
It is apparently a Belgian specialty (what about waffles?).
Anyway, so I am watching the episode and these people are just thoroughly enjoying “moules frites”. Enjoying them in the same way people enjoy chicken wings and beer.
Just food for thought.
Been busy planning a wedding and forgot all about ranting on here!
Work has been so crazy; almost as if I don’t have time to think or do anything else really. I eat, sleep and breathe it, which isn’t good. But, hey, I have a job, so no complaining.
I keep reminding myself that my wedding (which has no date yet) is still a year and a half away and I do not need to plan everything right now. I guess I’m just too excited.
Well, nothing eventful has honestly happened lately that is worth talking about or ranting/raving. I’m sure I’ll think of something soon…
It is amazing the things that can happen in one weekend. In just a measely 3 days, lifes are changed, friendships start, relationships break, cars are damaged, someone wins an award, you see people you haven’t seen in ages.
In one weekend, I have realized who matters, who doesn’t, what makes life special, who my best friends are, who I miss, who I am and who I am not.
I love movies like “He’s Just Not That Into You.” It puts things into perspective. Or CDs like The Fray’s new one. Maybe I am a sap, who knows, but what I know is that I want to be happy and I want the people I love to be happy. When they aren’t happy, my heart breaks, who ever they are.
It is hard to embrace change, but it can be so refreshing, and a reminder of who you were or who you are becoming. Welcome it and remind yourself that to grow, you must change.
