Invited Ma Mere over for dinner. It was lovely. For appetizers we had stuffed crab. The main course: Baked oysters, baked potatoes, and steamed asparagus.
Then we started browsing websites for wedding details: Photographers, honeymoons, etc.
The loveliness ended there.
"go to this site, go to that site, click on this, look at cruises ( I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT TO TAKE A CRUISE BY THE WAY) look at these pictures, you browse too fast, make the pictures bigger, make the print bigger, blah, blah, blah"
Aggravating. Then when I wanted to show her things I wanted her to see it was like talking to a small child with ADD.... and do you think she had anything positive to say about my visions?
I show her pictures of rose bouquets...
"Well you know how I feel about roses....."
Doesn't matter mom...they're MY favorite flowers.
Tell her I think I want to accent my bubblegum pink with another shade of pink instead of a minty green (which I think would come across too preppy for my tastes)
"You're never going to find a pink that matches that bubblegum pink"
I don't want it to match mom I want it to accent....do you think green MATCHES pink?
It would be different (at least I keep telling myself it would be) if she was contributing monetarily to the wedding- but she's not...she's just soliciting advice and making it painfully clear that I'm going to have to find (LOTS) of errands to send her to do on our wedding day - or I just might strangle her.
I just might.
I think my biggest problem is my mother and I are just alike.
I am going to bed. MOD this weekend.
I just love spending sunny spring weekends at work - LOVE it.
In my most simple form I am an explosion of endearing quirks and delightfully glamorous tendencies. Some of my most wonderful talents and qualities include but of course are not limited to: cracking an egg with one hand, applying mascara without a mirror, freakishly perfect and neat printing skills, a completely unashamed love for incredibly girly and sometimes questionably un-adult things (if my choice of paper clips happens to be silver or pink- I'm always going to go for the pink) a never-ending devotion to all things stationary (planners, notepads, greeting cards, post-it notes)My love of both The Girls Next Door and John and Kate + Eight and desire to live both lifestyles simultaneously (well, with far fewer children than 8!) an admitted addiction to cosmetics,lotions, and potions, and of course the pretty fingers that type the thoughtful words that bring this blog to you today-XOXO!
