  • Wedding: January 2011

We got married in January, and there were several people who did not give gifts. Fine. Not a big deal. But last week I was on the phone with a good friend of mine (who is 39 and should know better). And i told her I was finally done with my thank you notes and I was so relived. She said “Oh, I didn’t give you a present. Do you still want one?” Seriously? What am I supposed to say to that?? My response was “Well, if you send one, I will send you a thank you note.” Oh, and By The Way she was the guest who’s husband couldn’t come at the last minute, so she brought a random girlfriend. OK, fine. Then the two of them proceeded to become by far the drunkest there, and her friend made out with 2 different people at the reception. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but yes, now I want a present. 😉

@dynamic_duo: I’ve gotten about 12 weird looks because I have royal blue wedding shoes. I completely care less because I’m in love with them and wanted colored shoes, but FI’s family looks at me as if I’ve grown three heads.

Who cares anywho? It’s not like they’ll show except for pics.

“Will the wedding be in Indianapolis?  If not, I can’t come.” -from an old family friend (I call her my grandmother because she helped raise my dad after his mom died).  Please note, neither I nor Fiance have ever lived in Indiana (or even anywhere nearby), and he has no ties to the state at all.  The “If not, I can’t come” part was fair, though, because she’s really sick and just can’t travel.

The dog question made me LOL.

  • Wedding: October 2012

after i told my grandma about my engagement she asked to see the ring, then asked my Fiance how much he paid for it.  I love my grandma to pieces, shes one of my best friends, but she is just clueless sometimes.  When i kinda told her that was a little rude, she said she just wanted to make sure i was worthy of it.  haha (which may seem snobby if you don’t know my grandma, but she is one of the least snobbiest people i know, she’s just protective) Anyway, we took her out to lunch that same day and then she asks me “are you going to dye your hair blonde for the wedding?” My sister busted out laughing and i just gave her a “what on earth are you talking about” look.  I have never EVER dyed my hair in my life, it’s brown and curly/frizzy.  I have never taken any interest in dying/perming/straightening my hair. EVER.  I have no idea where that question came from.

@bklynbridetobe: lol, i know its nuts! i got those kind of comments from one person in particular. like my wedding just was a small insignficant party on the beach. i think this person was secretyl happy because she thought her wedding was bigger and better! oh well, we were both happy i guess!



@Ms. Library:  i totally got a similar comment!  MY boss from said to me – upon my third time telling her i am getting married and have already had my vacation time approved – “you’re getting married? my condolences”. !!!!   she said this after i declined taking home leftover pizza because i said i was on my “wedding diet”. so then i was baffled and said “are you giving condolences because i can’t eat the pizza or because i am getting married?”   and she replied because i am getting married and went on a bit about hard marriage is…..by the way, it is well known in our workplace that she had a crappy marriage AND divorce!

@CuppinKeix: I get that young question a lot too…. I have to try hard to remember my religion to keep from slapping someone….

Its like…. No I don’t want to be like you….I don’t need to date more…. I’m not that into seafood so I don’t need to check out the rest of the fish in the sea. I’ve found mine, and I’ll be just fine thank you.


I find that most ppl are jealous. If they had what we all have, they wouldn’t be so quick to question it.
