Today is brought to you by my scattered brain - that permanently has too many metaphorical tabs open. Enjoy the general lack of flow, pictures and transition that this post has.
This time change? Yeah. Not feelin' it. It's all well and good that it's light out later, but considering I wake my ass up at 6AM, I would rather it be light out then.
I bought tablecloths on Monday - 30 of them. Plus 20 table runners. Why? Because after poking around online I thought I would call to get a quote on rentals. $600. I about shit myself, especially because I was looking online and seeing that I could buy the same amount of tablecloths with great reviews for $200. So, clickity clack clack, I entered my credit card information. And while genuinely I feel it's a crime to force folks to pay for shipping, I was glad to fork over $6.95 considering they claim each of these weighs 3 lbs. So 3 x 30 = 90 lbs of tablecloths coming to our house + table runners. And boy do I hope Mr. Sass is the one who is home when these arrive.
We got a new coffee machine at work. The Keurig is no more. This new machine takes little pods that are in their own little coffee filter type thing and makes "coffee". Except it all seems to suck flavor wise. I'm not exactly a coffee snob - we drink the big can of store brand stuff at home. Anyways, we brought up a concern about having hazelnut coffee since we have a tree nut allergy kid in the office. But, we found out that the hazelnut coffee not only contains no real hazelnuts, but no nuts of any kind - or any kind of natural flavoring. Which like, consider me concerned. WHAT? NO NUTS? How is this stuff flavored then? Disclaimer : No hazelnuts were harmed in the making of this artificially flavored coffee. | edit | - I'm drinking some of this stuff now. It's shockingly nutty. Consider me 2x more concerned than I was previously.
We were supposed to get a wild and crazy blizzard, or snow-pocalypse if you will starting Monday night & continuing through today. No dice. I woke up to reports on Tuesday of zero snow on the ground. After I managed to not set an alarm and slept blissfully and deeply until Mr. Sass came home at 7AM and scared me out of my mind.
We've been taste testing wines that we might buy for the wedding. I took 2 different Cabernet Sauvignon over to the in-laws house for some help polishing them off. I hid the bottles & asked for a rating out of 10 as well as what they would be willing to pay per bottle. Imagine my surprise when the Black Box boxed wine got itself an 8/10 rating and a $18.99 cost per bottle. I was psyched because this stuff is about $25 for 3 liters! So I think we've got ourselves a winner. And I loved seeing the looks on their face when they found out a boxed wine fooled them. :)
Apparently it's tradition to have the groom show up at the end of a bridal shower and bring the bride flowers & then help carry all the gifts? I mean, okay, I'm all for making Mr. Sass carry things to the car, but can he bring me a soft pretzel instead of flowers? I think I'll ask. We've never exactly been the traditional type anyways. I'm having shower #1 on Sunday with mostly Mr. Sass' family - which, I'm nervous about. I've never really been one for gifts, and feel I never give the proper reaction when I open them. Especially because with our registries we can see who bought what, so, I already know.
My dress - as in the dress arrived today. I have my first fitting on Saturday (talk about moving quickly) when my Mom will be in town so she'll get to come. Which I think she's pretty happy about. And I know she'll make sure everything is just how it should be.
My momma is in town this weekend. So we'll be testing out a new bakery, which will hopefully have some delicious macaroons (I'm taking recommendations!), eating Mexican and drinking margaritas, hitting up one of my top 5 favorite restaurants - North Country Brewing - for my favorite deep fried soft pretzels & beer cheese, going to a dress fitting appointment + bridal shower #1. Basically I'll be eating all weekend. I ain't mad.
So yeah, friends, that's what I got today.
Share something random with me.
