    Shesaidyes :  Oh yeah! I totally did! Ha, ha!

    I thought I would have to wait until early next year, but my husband said I could go ahead. I started the custom process around the middle to end of September, and I got the ring just before Thanksgiving. Yay! *.*

    I went through an entire wedding fair writing that our date was 6-17-18… because that’s what I wanted to do. But our date was 6-16-18…. sigh.

    I repeated the same sentence twice in my master’s thesis, and I noticed it after it got published. Super embarassing!!

    I had our address wrong in our return address labels! Luckily my mom caught it before doing the invitations (save the dates were post cards and had the address printed), but I had sent a couple of thank you notes with the wrong address labels due to early gift givers. Luckily I was able to create similar labels through Staples for next-day pickup for like $10. And I had paid for the original ones with VistaPrint credit. So it had the potential to be a disaster but ultimately wasn’t too bad.

    For work I have to spell out White Blood Cell Count into a word document letter and fax it somewhere.  Every once in a while I miss the O in Count.  Spell check doesn’t catch it.  It’s like my computer is trying to get me fired.

    Once I sent this mass email at my office after two colleagues traded spaces (and phone extensions):

    “James and Kelly have traded orifices.”

    I sent out baby announcements recently when our baby was a couple weeks old and I was still deep in postpartum fog and sleep deprivation. I listed his length (which I was SO sure of and wrote down from memory, not even bothering to check the hospital records) as 28 inches. That would be a freaking enormous newborn, like 2 1/2 feet long! He was actually 19 inches and change. Durrrrr.
