just in the mood for a “Fun” vent thread. there are rules: we aren’t scrutinized or held responsible for anything we say in THIS thread. No checking back later, reading what someone says here, and using it as ammo against her in one of her later posts!
my apartment is so full of DIY wedding crap, it actually looks like a costume storage building. At first, I thought it was fun, but now I am thoroughly sick of it.
I’ve got one wedding dress for my second wedding, and am supposed to be sewing the dress for the first wedding, but it’s such an insane design, I am not sure I can do it. I bought some wedding gowns on ebay to cut up and use the fabric…and ONE of the patterns hasn’t yet arrived (I am combining three patterns.) So here I sit, anxiously awaiting a dannnnnng pattern, so I can see if my design will work out. I can’t move forward until the thing arrives. IT’s coming from the UK and may take weeks. AAARGH!
Soooo. today I got so fed up with waiting (with huge wedding dresses on dress forms, bouquet making supplies, faux fur, craft foam, ribbon, and fabric EVERYwhere,) that I went on Etsy and found an incredibly beautiful dress for $3k I MIGHT JUST BUY simply so I can cop out of this entire insane muffin-brained scheme.
If I was able to pull it off, it would be amazing. But I love the idea of having a backup…
whew. yeah, that feels better to have a proper vent about it –

I’m so sick of the adjective amazing in “amazing man, an amazing relationship, an amazing wedding, amazing flowers” ETC THERE ARE OTHER ADJECTIVES PEOPLE.

MissClaudiaCaswell : Add “Obsessed” to that list. I got my ____ three months ago and I’m still OBSESSED!”

Ps op life is short, buy the dress!

Instead of venting, I’m going to be petty.
This weekend, I went to a bachelorette party to Miami Beach for a friend who is also a mutual friend of my exH. A lot of these ladies know my exH and I was meeting them for the first time. Obviously, I was chatting with them all weekend and out of nowhere the one girl said to me “I have no idea how you were ever with him. He is so fake and snobby and you are so genuine and down to earth.”
It was a nice little added touch to an already great weekend.

After driving to North Carolina from New York this past weekend I am under the most sincere impression that Virginia has the worst drivers that this entire country has ever or will ever see until the end of time.
Not sure why New Jersey gets such a bad rap. You, Virginia, suck. XD

Calling inanimate objects, such as a ring or a dress, “her”.

The one thing I cant stand is when newly engaged or newly married ppl act like they are on a different level than others; yes, you’re in a new step in your life, but not a different level. 🙂

I hurt my leg and now I’m limping. I try to avoid people so they don’t notice but when they do the all tell me to go see a doctor. I’m a fucking grown up. I didn’t ask and I didn’t complain. I know when I should see a doctor. And yes, I’ve been twice. I don’t need acquitamces telling me medical advice.

I have to organize my summer early because we have multiple events to attend but one couple refuses to give us info because they haven’t sent out the invites yet and don’t want to give away their “surprise” early to us, even though they already know when and where everything is (and yes, we know that we are invited 100%). Just because you’re planning a wedding doesn’t mean other people will put their lives on pauve for you.

- Wedding: August 2019 - City, State
I’m changing my middle name bc I want to reclaim my life. My parents, who are FINALLY out of my life completely, due to truly horrifying and irreparable actions, gave me a typical/boring/overused middle name, and I want to change it to something more “me” – something I choose. As an independence thing.
I settled on “Magnolia”. It sounds wonderful with my eclectic first name, and has the same first letter as my soon-to-be married name. Of course, now everyone and their sister is named that, but the symbolism fits perfectly, and I love floral. femine names.
Call it frivolous, call it immature, but I am so extremely excited to make this happen. Not really a “vent”, but everyone I have mentioned it to seems to think it’s an incredibly stupid idea – except my Fiance and our officiant.

I am going to be catty! We had to buy a gift for a couple’s shower this weekend and the couple we have to buy the gift for registered for just the dumbest stuff. And oddly, like A LOT of honeymoon stuff. Like shirts and cups and luggage tags. One of the item was matching “Mr. & Mrs.” hats and koozies. She registered for them, because “I want to make sure everyone knows its our honeymoon so we get free upgrades and free stuff”. Literally its written on the website. My husband took one look at it and just went “Babe. I would marry you 100 more times. Thank you for being such a normal person”

I’ll bite. A couple of months I got call from a semi-friend/acquaintance that I met during some job training like 2 years ago. She invites me to meet her at her office for coffee and then we dont actually go and get coffee we just sit in her office like in almost awkward silence since we dont have much in common.
It was weird..havent spoken to her since.
Yesterday she calls me out of the blue and wants to know how Im doing? Im semi okay, going through cancer treatment, and she blurts out that she finally finished her associates degree and is graduating next month and that on the 15th she is having a party at her church to celebrate and to come…..uhhh nope.
Im just suspicious of people, Im assuming its a gift grab.
