Mr. and Mrs.


As of yesterday around 1:15 p.m. We had such a great time and I'm so grateful for everyone who celebrated with us. We have some pretty awesome people in our lives and of course I now have a pretty awesome husband in my life.

RIP Chris Cornell

Very sad news this morning. Chris Cornell passed away last night at the age of 52. Growing up in the 90s his music was a huge part of my youth. From Soungarden to Audioslave to even the Casino Royale Bond theme, he was an amazing talent.



On my deathbed I will pray 
To the gods and the angels 
Like a pagan to anyone 
Who will take me to heaven

Making a long day even longer

I'm finally relaxing at home and getting ready for bed after a very long day. I worked late and then had to run some errands before I headed home. When I finally got home I realized I left the place cards for the wedding back at work. I could have gone back in to get them tomorrow or Friday but I wanted to get it over with so I took an Uber back to work and grabbed them. I'll sleep easier with one less task on the to-do list. Oddly enough I'm feeling less stressed than I was last week.

Four days

Tomorrow is my last day of work before the wedding. I took Thursday and Friday off to run errands and spend time with family and friends. We picked up our rings from the jeweler today. I'm really happy with them. I wish I could wear mine now but I'll be good and wait a few days.

Before I head to bed I wanted to share an incredible story I read on the Atlantic today, My Family's Slave. It's a long read but well written and worth the time.

"She lived with us for 56 years. She raised me and my siblings without pay. I was 11, a typical American kid, before I realized who she was."

Bachelorette

I had my bachelorette party last night. It was a lot of fun and I can tell that my friends put a lot of planning into it. We started out at Fiona's with drinks and snacks and lots of temporary tattoos. Then we got on a party bus and headed out to dance and drink around the city. I woke up with a little bit of a hangover but once I ate and took a nap I felt much better. Now I'm just relaxing around the apartment debating if I want to watch Me Before You. I know it will make me cry so I'm debating if I'm in the mood for a sad movie.

Here's a picture on the party bus last night.

One month, tenth days and other lengths of time that are stressing me out.

I haven't abandoned you blog. I've just been stressed/busy with wedding planning, work, Bosco and life in general

Wedding planning - our wedding is one month from today! When did that happen? I'm excited but stressing about everything going smoothly. I'm taking a gamble by ordering my flowers through the internets but every florist I called couldn't do it. Here is my tip for you. Order you bouquet way early. IT WILL ALL BE OK. If you say it in caps it makes it true.

work - still very busy and still understaffed. We have a new assistant starting May 1st and a college student working over the summer helping out. My desk looks like a paper factory exploded.

Bosco - had some teeth pulled a biopsy on a small spot on his leg. He's been in a cone for TEN DAYS. It has felt like a damn lifetime! He was not pleased which means I'm not pleased and it has not been fun for anyone. I tried explaining this to Bosco but he is, after all, a cat. The good new is his stitches were removed today and he doesn't need the cone anymore. *paw five*

I will catch up on blogs soon. I need to check in on my internet peeps.

Change of plans

Too much fun on Friday night = ordering Zaftigs and lounging around in PJs on Saturday night.

I love the Ferris Bueller Dominos commercials with Joe Keery (Steve from Stranger Things). He's a good Ferris and is adorable.

I also love looking at our wedding registries and seeing what's been bought. Exciting! My shower is on the 23rd.
