Rain, Rain Go Away...

..Come again when I'm pregnant and getting ready for baby.
Oh, that's not how it goes?

Oh well.

It's one of those mornings where you wake up and think, oh man it's only like, 5 - I get to go back to sleep! and happen to glance at the clock and realize, nope - it's 8:15, time to get up, and its so gross and wet outside...

But it's a half-workday Friday!!

Rehearsal dinner tonight, wedding tomorrow for our close friends (E is best man and is keeping his speech a "secret" - let's just hope that without an editor, all the jokes that he thinks are hilarious, are at least chuckle-worthy...)

All the festivities are over an hour away so we'll be staying with friends tonight, and a hotel after the wedding tomorrow night - which translates into a girl's almost-worst nightmare:
packing TWO NIGHTS worth of formal-wear, hair appliances, makeup tools, razors, heels and undergarments.
A dress for the rehearsal dinner tonight, a dress for the conservative Catholic mass (during which I am performing a reading, so NO SHOULDERS EXPOSED) and a "let-loose-I'm-hot-and-sexy" dress for the reception afterwards.  Don't forget shoes to go with every outfit!  But wait - is it supposed to rain all weekend?? do I need to bring galoshes to wear from car to church to car to hotel to reception?!

I haven't packed yet either, ssshh don't tell E - I'll be mad-dashing to Flight of the Bumblebee, brastraps flying, underwear soaring through the air, heels piling up...

See you all Sunday!

There are FUCKING ASSHATS in the world.
Our joint checking account was hacked (via my debit card) which I discovered this morning when my card stopped working at the gas station and I had to call customer service...
I just went to our online statement and there are THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS spent at Ikea, BedBath and Beyond, Party City, grocery stores - IM SO FUCKING MAD.
Yes, our bank is awesome and we will get all the money back -but to the DOUCHE CANOES who will most likely get away with all their free shit - I REALLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT KARMA'S A BITCH.


  1. A girl's worst nightmare indeed! And then of COURSE you forget the one most important thing you needed (oh shit, I'm going to look like an idiot without mascara!)

    Good times!

  2. KARMA better kick their booty hole! So sorry!!!! P.S. I hope you have a great time at the wedding!!

  3. Hi from ICLW! I hope the weekend went smoothly and there were a few genuine laughs at the speech.

    So glad your bank is awesome!

  4. Hello from ICLW. Wow some folks are just slime to steal. So glad that your bank will fix things for you.

  5. Hi from ICLW, Kate! I may have just found my new favorite read. I totally need an upbeat embrace the rain sort of blog like this in my life! Will be spending some time catching up this week. Bernadette
