Me: I just got a little weepy thinking about getting to marry you! Do you get a little weepy when you think about it?
Jordan: Not really.
so, July 11, 2015 we’re getting married at The Trolley Barn in Atlanta!
I agonized over the venue choice. I wanted a place we could bring our own alcohol and had fewer catering restrictions but geez! there are not a lot of places like that. but now that we’ve chosen I feel SO RELIEVED.
and Jordan I only got in two gigantic fights because I was stressed out and I’d told him I would be so cool about this and also he was so smug when he was the one who said all along that we should do the trolley barn and then of course that is where we are doing it and I do not take well to smugness.
and my mom cried on my birthday because I told her not to email anyone else unless I told her to email because she told a caterer that we were having 140 quests and that is 1) not the correct number and 2) not the correct word (though maybe we should have quests instead of guests, that sounds kind of fun) so from now I would like to handle these things, which she did not take well.
but it’s going to get fun, right? I’m going to try on wedding dresses this weekend! and I have a pinterest board full of ideas! and we’re still going to do this thing in a way that is meaningful to us. and at the end we’ll be married. and that is going to be awesome.

i know i am not the first or only person to ever plan a wedding but i am just having the hardest trying to meet my own expectations of what i’d like this to be as well not spend more money than we would to buy a new car and there seems to be no happy medium and i’m pretty bummed out about it.

Wedding planning = not fun. Getting to laugh at this guy forever = the most fun.

I got some shiny new bling and a brand new fiancée.

in may I was forced out my rolls royce of cubes (by the window, on a path no one ever walks by, the holy grail of cubicles).

In june when the interns started we need five cubes together so I moved from my already new cube to the next cube over who belongs to a manager on my team who was on vacation for a month.

said manager is now back from vacation and so I need to move, but our admin keeps telling me to stay but this desk isn’t my desk. it’s full of his stuff. I feel so so awkward. 

file under things I’d never thought would be stressing me out at work.
