Living life in the carpool lane..

Archive for February 2010

I’ve been too lazy to blog lately.. there has been so much going on with wedding planning.. and work.. and life.. that I look at my link to my wordpress blog.. and I just get too lazy to type something..

That’s not saying that I don’t have much to say.. I did..

There were moments of frustration that I want to just rant about.. but I thought twice because I didn’t want to say things that I really didn’t mean in the long run..

There were “words of wisdom” I thought I had about wedding planning.. and upon further thought.. it just made me sound arrogant and all smug about weddings.. so.. I opted against making such postings..

Then.. there were some general postings about what’s going on.. and they just seemed to complicated to type about when taken out of context to previous events.. and that would just make them sound stupid..

I’ll just admit.. I’ve been lazy..

Sorry.. but I can’t say it won’t happen again..

When I have something awesome to say.. I’ll be sure to say it..

I’m watching Little Miss Perfect on WeTV.

I apparently watch A LOT of shows on WeTV.

Little kiddie pageants.  It just never ceases to amaze me what lengths mothers go to in order to create a “Little Miss Perfect.”

I guess I can’t really say anything.. not be a mother or anything..

The glitz and the glamour.. the MONEY!  But these mothers must spend so much more money than they get from their winnings..

These kids.. poor kids..

Some of them look like the genuinely enjoy it.. but others look like they are being forced and their mothers are living vicariously through them..

Are there any pageants like that here in California?

I’ve noticed that those pageants are mainly in the south or midwest.. hmmmm…

And seriously.. does he really have to sing.. really?!?!

Several things have happened between the time I last wrote an entry and now..

For starters, I’m done with my MBA.  I finished the program on February 1st.  With Joe’s help, I managed to get an A for my last class.  It was a hard finance class.  I’m terrible with numbers and Joe’s really good with numbers… so he worked his magic and helped me.. a lot.

We’ve also got a lot of the big planning stuff out of the way for our wedding.

This week I’ll be working on making some Save-The-Date cards for the guests that will need to make major travel arrangements to attend our wedding.

Most people give Save-the-Date cards to all their potential guests, but our tight budget is only allowing us to make enough to cover the people that will be most likely making flight arrangements for our wedding.  That was the condition that the guest needed in order to get a Save-the Date.

That way, we only needed about twenty cards.

I’m going to be working on them with one of my best friends.  I’ll try to post pictures of the finished product as soon as they are ready…

According to my bestie, who purchased all the paper for me today.. should I not use a specific type of paper I asked for.. the entire costs of the Save-the-Dates would be about $20.. so.. about a dollar each.  I guess that’s a good price.. I mean.. there will be no shipping and handling costs from getting them printed from some online place.. and the price isn’t hiked up due to being charged for the labor of the workers doing them.. so I guess I’m getting a good deal making them with my friend.

And.. it’s FUN!!

I hope to get these out before the end of the month..
