So my wedding is this upcoming Saturday! Aghhhhh! I'm stressed!
My luck has been at an all time high, and when I say its been bad, I think that is down playing how bad it has actually been.
For starters, our venue that we had picked and sent out on the invitations did not work out, and we found out two weeks before the wedding! Next venue we picked was going to be perfect and I had come to terms with having an outside wedding after our first choice didn't work out. Then we got a call saying there was going to be "rules": no more than a certain capacity, no drinks allowed, and out by 10 p.m. So that just sent me on a total panic mode!
Thank GOD! For my amazing in laws, because they said they would foot the bill if we found a venue near us, which was a last minute find. Unfortunately there will be a party in the same venue before the wedding, which only gives us two hours to decorate. Yup...that was the only option left. I mean, I insisted that we just run away and elope, but Matt wasn't havin it. Haha.
Now onto my bridal shower, the day before I was informed that the person making the cupcakes was going to be late, I said I would make them! No problem, box cake is simple and I've made them countless times! So the morning of my bridal shower I get the cake mix all done, pop them in the oven, timers up! Open the oven and they are possibly the ugliest cupcakes you can imagine. I brush it off and say, "Oh I can make them look pretty with the frosting..." We will just skip over the story about how much of a disaster that was and move onto me giving up all hope for the cupcakes and deciding to make cookies.
Now I tend to be a little cocky when it comes to my cookie making skills, because everyone always tells me how great they are....
Yup, you are not even suspensful as to what happened. The cookies came out...well I don't even have a word for it. They did not spread, they looked like jaw breakers and probably would break your jaw if you tried hard enough. We ended up buying hot and delicous McDonalds cookies, and I guess this will make for a pretty funny story when I'm old and gray!
Onto the next day, yeah I know you are probably tired but if I don't right this no one will ever believe all the bad juju that has been happening to me lately. Matt said he was craving pizza, so I delightfully popped one into the oven, the smell was so stinkin good and looked amazing! I pull it out set it on top of the stove turn around to grab a towel, and PLOP! The pizza falls face first onto the floor spilling all the pizzas cheesy contents onto my rug!
So in the midst of all this bad luck, you can say my stress levels are so high that I just don't even care anymore. Haha. Oh yeah did I mention I had to drop another two hundred to my photographer since the venue changed and has to travel now?! Also, after the cupcake fiasco I tried to feed one to my dog, who let me tell you, will eat a rotting corpse (its happened) she took one lick and looked at me as if I had covered it in poison.
Say a little prayer that I don't make a fool of myself on my wedding day, but if I do, I think I'll be ok with it. haha. I don't think anything else will bother me after these last two weeks!
