I.F.H. Mondays

This blog title is brought to you by the following skit by one of my favorite comedians – Nick Swardson.

(Oh yeah – unless you have headphones, it’s NSFW.)

So anyway – not much to report from the weekend. We went to see The Orphanage Friday night – VERY VERY good. Pretty scary. Saturday, uh….I sent back my plethora of dresses to VS and Bluefly, and then went grocery shopping. Hung out and tried to ignore the drumming and loud music being played by the husband and his friends (they were actually quite courteous and I actually got to sleep around midnight). Yesterday, we didn’t do much either, although we DID get the Christmas tree taken down, finally. NOW my house feels normal. I’ll start taking new photos of the inside soon. I know you’re all (all three of you) are dying to see what it looks like.

So, yeah. Uneventful weekend, but that’s good. I have a lot of packing in front of me this week. We leave on Sunday! Woo hoo!!

And the winner is…

This was the winner. The light pink one didn’t fit me very well. Husband seemed to like this one the best and since I STILL have yet to install any sort of full length mirror, I have to take his word for it. :) Now – the daunting task of sending back the other ones.

I have a little visit to the, eh – wax technician this afternoon in preparation for Costa Rica. And I forgot to bring my ibuprofen buffer to take beforehand. This will be fun.

Other than having hot wax placed dangerously close to my genitals, this weekend seems to have little or nothing to do – which is fine by me. I can get some packing and more preparation done for the trip. Luckily I got all my work done last night, so I won’t need to work over the weekend – but I might bring the pc laptop home so I can practice some Spanish via the Rosetta Stone CD L burned for me.

Aside from apparently forgetting to set the alarm clock last night…

Oh my god, it’s 7:30!

Husband: WHAT?

Me: It’s 7:30! Wait, what day is it? Friday? Friday, right? Crap! What the hell!

Husband: What?

Me:I swear I turned on the alarm! Get in the shower! Crap! What the hell!?

…it’s been an uneventful day, to say the least. Alright, I have to get some work done before I board the bikini wax bus.

Add two more.

Thanks Martini. :) Now I have more on my credit card.

I just ordered these two from bluefly. The pink one is BCBG and the purple one is Design Theory.

And I forgot to post about the dresses!

So, the dresses came in. Victoria’s secret is on crack.

Three of the four dresses I ordered in a size small. They all fit me totally different.

The purpley one with a print was kind of cute – but it was one of those bubble hem lines that I can’t figure looks flattering on anyone. Thank god – that was the most expensive one.

The green one is cute, but super casual. I might keep it anyway for the summer and for a day dress – it’s not wedding-y enough.

The pink one is actually terry cloth, and requires bosoms such as the lady in the picture to keep it up. I’ll be sending that back for sure.

And the black one is the one my husband told me to keep. It fits pretty well, but he made a good point – black on the beach is kind of weird. (And I only slightly agree. Black is good for any occasion – even if it is on the beach.) It’s an eyelet fabric…and since I don’t have a full length mirror in my house I have no clue what looks like on me. I’ll have to wait until I buy a mirror for my final decision. And I still have a dress coming in from Zumiez to try on (the white & black print).

The dress options….

Please remember this is a beach wedding. :)

Obviously some are more casual than others, but I might just keep a couple as cover ups/cute tropical vacation clothes. :)

Feedback people, I need feedback. My Victoria’s Secret dresses will be arriving today, the other one probably Monday. Granted, some might not fit, so if the overwhelming response is one of the ill-fitting ones, I might be hard pressed to get the right fitting size here in time. Pressure!
