I’m so considerate of other people’s time and being places when I say I’ll be there and other people just aren’t and ugh
HELP SOMEONE JUST WISHED ME A HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!!!! I’m so horrified?!?!? god knows I don’t look a day over 12 soooo am I like obese, does be think I’m pregnant?? Gee whiz, you can’t just walk around telling innocent 23 year olds happy Mother’s Day where did my youth go jfc
also, me and this other guy were walking on the sidewalk at the same (pretty fast) pace and it was super awk so I stupidly sped up instead of slowing down and now I’m like run-walking home and that’s my life
who are these people who put a . or a - when they reblog posts just so their url shows up trying to kid come on now
ugh my cinco did not go at all as planned since i caught whatever disease kenny picked up from his kids at school and i am m i s e r a b l e. he’s still getting over it himself. so we cancelled our brunch at crios in dupont which i’ve been dyinggg to try. but! i did enjoy a marg so i guess the day is not all lost. hope you guys’ cinco de mayos for more pleasant than mine :)
(And I’m going to cry through the entire thing the day of, I just know it.) For the longest time, I’ve been kind of relaxed about wedding planning since it’s still pretty far off but it’s definitely creeping closer and I’m starting to really get the itch to get going! We’re going dress shopping for the first time the second weekend of June and I can’ttt wait.
Anyway, these were the last few songs I was considering:
- The Luckiest - Ben Folds
- Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You - Lauryn Hill
- Smile - Uncle Kracker
The Luckiest was almost it because Kenny and I love that song - it’s the only song that has meaning to us that is wedding song material. But I just had a nagging feeling the verse about the old couple in particular, although sweet, isn’t the vibe I want for the first dance. And the other two songs I loooove and they were nice for wedding but I just wasn’t sold for some reason. Also, I feel like everyone does Smile.
But then today I was just listening to music at work like I always do and Can’t Help Falling in Love by Ingrid Michaelson (originally Elvis of course) came on. Not gonna lie, I first heard her version on Pretty Little Liars. If you watch, you might remember the scene at the end of last season between Aria and Ezra in the car when she breaks down. I immediately loved the song and downloaded it then but I never really thought of it in the context of a wedding. But today at work when it came on for some reason I did and I just started crying… while sitting there at my desk. And that’s how I knew it was the one! It’s so, so beautiful - especially her version. And I can’t wait to dance to it with Kenny next June! :)
So I was just having kitchen chatter with this guy in my office about how I’m glad the week’s moving by pretty quickly, and said something like yeah it feels like it should be Tuesday. And he was like… It is Tuesday. And I felt like such a dumbass and laughed about how out of it I am and then I come back to my computer and remember, nope it IS Wednesday. (Come on, Cinco is in four days, clearly I’m gonna be on top of my calendar game.) Fail, sir.
