so as it turns out... THAT happened today.
and of course you would think I walked into my office all bright eyed and bushy tailed, right?
nope. I received a phone call at 7:00am and was then given the news. 
that is correct. fired via phone call. two days before my wedding.
my reaction you say?

bring on the honeymoon bitches.
it has been 1.5 hours and my house is already cleaner than it has been in a month.
you can't hold me down.

how embarrassing lol

it's wedding week! guess how I am celebrating.
with hives of course. all over my face and shoulders. worst luck ever award goes to... ME
if they don't seem to be cleared up by Wednesday I should probably seek professional help.

in other news, our bachelorette/bachelor party was on Saturday.

as you can see it was an amazing night and I have very limited photos..
which I think is how it should be.
thank you to Megan, Breanna, Ryan. Craig, Wesley and Kevin for making it a special day.
I had soooo much fun and I cannot wait until Friday!

a competition update

I deeply apologize for this filler post.
I didn't get a chance to edit photos for what I had planned.
please don't hate me because you are bored.

on June 25th Breanna and I started a weight loss competition
if you don't remember this, you are a horrible friend you can read about it here
or I can just tell you that I started out at 150.8# and Breanna at 185.2#

my photo is actually a little old. this wasn't the post I had planned for today so I didn't take a picture today.
when I weighed in this morning I was at 148.2# which is a total of 2.6# lost rather than only 1.2#
Breanna's photo is also misleading, over the course of the last 72 days she has been up too as much as 187#
meaning she is showing a loss of closer to 3# rather than just the 1# you see in this post.
over all I know you are like who cares lady, you lost 2.6#
but I will tell you something, my guns are huge.
no but seriously, my clothes fit so much better and I feel and look a lot healthier.
SO the scale might not be moving, but the important stuff is changing.
important stuff like a lack of back rolls which was a main goal throughout the course of wedding planning.

mildly inappropriate

holy moly, did I really miss a whole week of talking to you?
where does the time go... it is certainly not being wasted, I can promise you that.
I have been so busy with life [work, school, crossfit] and wedding stuff.
time is really just flying by and I feel like I am accomplishing nothing at all.
Saturday was my and Aaron's.. NOT shower.
according to etiquette you are only supposed to invite wedding invitees to your shower.
our wedding is super small and we wanted to include as many people as possible,
so it was NOT a shower, but rather just a celebration.
it was great and I can't wait to show you some pictures.
I hope you saw my post over on Helene's blog, if you haven't go now!
and now, finally, let's move on to the good stuff!

Ticked Off Tuesday

[pipe the eff down edition]
this IS my real hair
1. people who act like the wedding of a family member/friend is all about them.
if you are not the bride or the groom pipe the fuck down.
2. people who continuously question my decisions. if you are not ME then pipe the fuck down.
3. people who act miserable and try to ruin special moments for whatever selfish reason they come up with.
if you are being a cry baby bitch, pipe the fuck down.
4. people who wait until the last minute regarding important decisions which leave other people hanging.
if you can't handle the responsibility, pass it on and pipe the fuck down.
5. all the people that suck. pipe the fuck down and quit it.
sorry for the language Grandma!!
