I feel like this are happening so fast all of a sudden!

The invites were finished, and we mailed them out on Tuesday. In fact, I got a phone call from my aunt today to say that she'd gotten hers.

I also had my first wedding dress fitting, picked up the bridesmaids dresses, and got Steve's wedding band.

The only thing that isn't getting done is... oh... everything else! I'm eating ridiculous meals- dinner yesterday was pop tarts and milk. Tonight I ate an entire can of clam chowder at 11 pm. (Supposedly my bedtime.) My apartment would be a complete mess, except that my mom was here and cleaned my kitchen and bathroom.

And moving. I haven't done any of that either. There are random things in my car from last weekend because I can't lift them out myself and Steve is gone. There's an iron table base, a used printer from my parents that is better than mine, and a nativity scene that my mom found at a garagee sale.

I'm about to run off home for another weekend of wedding. (This follows a week of wedding, as evidenced in previous post.)

I am throwing a wedding shower today, and then I'll spend the rest of my HOLIDAY weekend making the rest of the invitations. wheeeeeeee. Can't wait. (cough cough)

At least I get my engagement ring back tomorrow. And my brand new, custom made matching wedding band!

It's a sweatshop in my livingroom!

Yuck. I am sick of stamping. The thing is that after I made 100 RSVP postcards, I found out that the ink I used will continue to rub gold off onto everything forever and ever. But after making 100, uh... I was just not going to stop. Tommorow: operation Spray Fixative. Get Steve, get some like.... gas masks... and let the toxic chemicals fly!

Score! I am going to be in a focus group about education and politics.

$85 for two hours, and we get snacks too. I wonder if I can knit during it.....

Stupid stupid stupid!

I sent out 22 beautiful handmade invitations Monday for Carolyn's bachelorette party.

Only problem?

I put the time, 6:00 pm, but no date. UUUUHHhgghghhgfshgjhgfs how did I manage to do this! I even called my mom up to have her listen to me read the invite to check my wording.

Now I'm going to get 22 confused calls or emails. Just what I need to make my week go well.

7 Things

I've never done a meme before. How exciting! I'm popular!

Here are the rules:
Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and need to read your blog. I've been tagged by Kellie. (Except I'm not going to tag anyone. If you feel inspired... write something.)

1. I like to dip my McDonald's french fries in honey.

2. I currently own 37 pairs of shoes, which is a lot if you have huge feet like me. (Size 11 or 12) A bunch of those pairs need to be thrown away due to being semi-broken or really out of style, but I hoard shoes due to my childhood of only being able to wear white leather Keds.

3. When I was 8 I lied at Girl Scout Camp about not having jeans or something to get out of riding a horse.

4. I am horrible at spelling. Sometimes I spell things wrong on the board. I didn't learn how to spell "friend" until 11th grade, and I learned "their" sometime in college. I think I mispelled a word in this but the spell-checker isn't working...

5. In high school, I was scared of pumping gas or paying bills at restaurants wrong somehow. I'd get anxious about it.

6. My first job was babysitting at a neighbor's house at the ripe old age of 10 years old.

7. When I was a kid I always moved my right toes right before we crossed a white line on the road while driving, and my left toes right after we crossed it. I pretended I got some sort of points for doing this. Sometimes I still do it, semi-conciously.

Now... a black diamond. Why would you want a black diamond? I guess I just don't see the need...

Clementine Shawlette, Sarah included for scale.

Wedding invite #1 of uhhh 150. Or something.

May! How did this happen?

1. Invitation prototype is mostly completed. I just need to create RSVP postcards and an info insert on my computer. I am very proud of myself for successfully creating the actual invitation without any disasters or need for bailout.
2. I have a person to alter my dress

Other people's weddings
1. I haven't tried on the bridesmaids dress for Carolyn's wedding in June. Due to some... ahem... incomplete information about my size, the bridesmaid who did the orders got me a size 6, and I needed a size 4. Now I weigh about 5 pounds less, and I knoooow the size 6 is going to be a tad roomy in the bust. And I need it altered probably, but I am too nervous about it not fitting to actually try it on.
2. Damn. I should be planning the wedding shower and bachelorette party, but instead I am reading* and knitting.

1. I started the Clementine shawlette from Interweave. I should like... take a photo and such.
2. There is no number two.

*I am rereading The Time Traveler's Wife, which I read two years ago and really loved. I started it last night and am now on page 259. My parents used to say I ate books, not read them. I'm surprised I've had time to knit obsessively as well.
