Wedding Dress Blues

      40 Comments on Wedding Dress Blues

My wedding is almost a month away. I can hardly believe it. You know what else is unbelievable?  I found a wedding dress that I love. Also? It cost me less than $50. Seriously. And I bought it online. Now, it’s not a traditional white dress.  That’s not my style.  I’ve watched those Say Yes to the Dress shows and… Read more »

Be back soon: Gone winter crazy

      11 Comments on Be back soon: Gone winter crazy

My first winter in Minnesota and it’s awful. Honestly, do you people know California exists? I now understand why people thought I was nuts for moving here.  Love does make you do crazy things.

I’ve written about photo a day memes on social media here before, but I recently decided to join another one.  Unlike other photo a day things, this one doesn’t have a daily theme…other than myself. The hashtag is #365FeministSelfie. I saw a few people I follow on social media with the tag and read a blog post about it on… Read more »

An evil wedding registry? Honeymoons vs gifts

One thing I’ve realized from reading various wedding websites is that everything outside the norm is controversial.  And if you don’t have your etiquette down to a T, you’re an awful, awful person who probably kicks kittens for fun. Seriously, people need to calm the hell down. We’ve done something that might cause a few of the more traditional folks… Read more »

Non-traditional wedding, bridal stuff

      No Comments on Non-traditional wedding, bridal stuff

If you haven’t heard by now, I am engaged to be married.  Yes, I am a fiancee, a bride to be. The thing is, I hate weddings. I like the idea of being married, but the hub-bub necessary to get to that point freaks me out. Before I even met, Paul, I had decided that if I ever do get… Read more »
