April was a bit of a blur with work, wedding planning, and tornados. Some of these things are much more fun than others...trust me on this.
On the wedding front, I got a few more things ordered, had a dress fitting (yeah, 6 months out, I'm a planner...), finally confirmed our reception location at the resort, decided on menus, and a few other items that I can't even remember now. Don't worry, it's all saved in my handy-dandy spreadsheet. I kid (and sometimes bitch) about the crazy that is wedding planning, but I'm so looking forward to our wedding day, and our marriage.
On the work front, I worked. I got paid. I'm still employed. Moving on...
Tornados. Holy CRAP y'all. Dallas/Fort Worth had 17 of them one afternoon. Yes, I said 17!!! If you missed that story, just click here for the video. We were lucky - only had 20 minutes of hiding in the stairwell in DT Dallas while they passed. Our home was fine too. That was one scary ass afternoon, and I'd prefer not to repeat it, ever.
In the randomness category, I read a fabulous book that you should all go out and buy:
And you should read her blog too. It'll make you feel 100% normal. Promise.
I also read this book which all the good housewives (and us working slobs too!) are salivating over:
It's hot, it's steamy, it's sexy, it's pornographic. So if you like that stuff, check it out.
My friend Nicole was also gracious enough to allow me to guest post at Big Day for 10k, sharing some truths and myths about planning a destination wedding. Run over there and check it out! Say hi while you're at it.
We ran down to Houston for the weekend to attend the awesome wedding of one of my best friends and his new lovely wife.
And now it's May. We're currently watching the Knicks and the Mavs get the crap kicked out of them in the NBA playoffs, and watching the Texas Rangers kick booty and take names. Go Rangers!!
We are still adjusting to our new schedule of working/commuting together (did I tell you that we now work in the same office?!), so I haven't really been experimenting in the kitchen. I have a really small rotation of meals, and we pick up dinner on the later nights. Boring, right?? I need to find my cooking mojo. And my crafty mojo. If y'all see either of them, will you let me know?
And that about covers it.
Enjoy your new day!!!
