For Context:

Kittens, I’m still reading everyone’s blogs, but since I don’t post OR comment on-the-job and the next few weeks are BUSY with post-work wedding planning meetings, travel, etc.  I’m desperately trying to keep up with everyone AND everything.

What do I have to show for my planning efforts?

Well, let me tell you.  Last week a two-hour meeting with the invitations-guy resulted in a wording-proof announcing the wedding of Katherine X X (I have two middle names) and Christopher Scott.


Last weekend I was Expecting and apparently,  now I have a new fiance.

All I want to know is WHO is this Christopher guy?  And, is he a hottie?

For Context: We walked into the appointment with an invitation we LOVED (both the paper AND the font) from this printer, specifically.  We had wording prepared.  We were ready to provide quantities and deposit monies.

Once again, I feel like The Social Contract has been broken.

Marcus and I solemnly swear to be the most decisive, zen-like, low-maintenance engaged couple that the world has ever seen.  In exchange, I feel like The Universe and our karmic balance owe us perfection.

Or at least not outright failure.

Naturally such debaucles require a re-dedication to Leisurely Pursuits.

Last night I went to a sorority sister-fueled wine tasting and ended up eating my body weight in Kelly’s Peanut Butter Popcorn Crunch.  I didn’t even know such a thing existed.

It was like seeing The Unicorn of Snack Food.

Tonight, Marcus and I are spending date night at Toast, which is a Wine Bar in the Warehouse District of Minneapolis.  In keeping with the theme of the weekend, I fully intend to eat my body weight in crostini.  Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

Maybe there will be snaps.  Or maybe there won’t.  I’m a fan of pretty food, but I’m also a fan of places with horrible lighting.  You can’t win every battle.

What are your weekend plans?

Do you believe in karma?

  1. The Unicorn of Snack Food… I love it. Keep being zen, my friend. Unbrides unite!

  2. I definitely believe in karma! Everything happens for a reason! Like the massive storm that gave us 6 straight days to paint 🙂

  3. I’m a believer! I completely believe you receive what you put out into this world. And even if it isn’t real, it makes me a better person to live this way!

  4. Girl, I feel you. Our wording proofs came back that we were to be wed in Mayland. I’m still wondering where that state is!

  5. Would love to see previews of your wedding invitation design! What are your colors?

    Definitely believe in karma…it always comes back to you 🙂

    Hope you’re having a great weekend (with that peanut butter crunch popcorn situation, I’m not sure it could be anything but great!)

  6. Well your family and friends must be getting quite confused, with all of the surprises you’re throwing at them! Hope your invites get all figured out.
    I sort of believe in karma, but I’ve seen instances where things just are just uneven in the karma world. I try to promote the good karma still!

  7. Oooh, a wine bar sounds fun! Have a good time, and enjoy that crostini 🙂

  8. Oh no, that seems so stressful! Great job staying positive! I definitely believe in Karma and that everything happens for a reason….

    Hope you had a good weekend and the wine bar was fun!

  9. My fiance is making all of our invites so it’s easy to squash ideas;) haha…he’s actually amazing at them so it’s made things a lot easier!
    Stay positive as best as you can-it WILL all work out!

  10. I totally believe in karma. But maybe more so for the big stuff in life, not so much invitations? LOL

    Have fun tonight. 🙂

  11. I absolutely believe in karma, however I dont think it shows up on little things either. Karma shows up in the picture and I think its more about the way you live your life.

  12. Hey, this Christopher guy sounds like a catch, maybe you should consider keeping him.

  13. Definite believer in karma–for the big things. In an Everything Comes Back Around kind of way.

    Peanut Butter Popcorn *and* crostini?! I am a fan of your leisurely pursuits.

  14. Try to worry too much…it will out come out in the end (or if not you’ll have some confused guests!) I believe in karma, but like many of the other commenters think it applies overall, not to the small components. Repeat the following: “My wedding will rock!”

  15. No matter how easy-going you are, something will come up that is so absurd, you go totally Bridezilla. It sounds like you kept your cool.

    I was never the “I dreamt of my wedding since a little girl” chick. I didn’t worry about color schemes (black and white) or dresses (my friends chose their own), or anything other than the food and the booze.

    And I still cried about 150 times between my bridal shower and the big day. It’s just high-stress times, no matter how zen you try to be. These people get PAID to make you freak out on a daily basis.

  16. speaking of wine, dude, i have a wine tasting event coming up in 2 weeks: over 2,00 are up for tasting. yeah seriously. i think i better learn how to spit before then.

    hope you’re having a great weekend! 🙂

  17. I do believe in Karma, most definitely. In fact, its slapped me in the face a time or two
