How much is too much?

So, I like to consider myself "thrify" instead of cheap :) I tend to try to make a lot of things, rather then buy them. However, I am madly, truly, deeply in love with this, from Etsy. I MUST have this. MUST MUST MUST! However, it's $180! My thrify little self is saying NO! But my "this is my wedding damn it" self is saying "MINE!"I have read blog after blog after blog about how to save money. I think I have done a fairly good job. I am making a lot of things. I made our save the dates, I am making my veil, gosh darn it I'll even bake my cupcakes if I have to! BUT I WANT THIS! I just am trying to reason wtih myself that it's ok to spend that money. How much is too much?

Ummm what do they put in those cookies?!

C makes me laugh every day. Sometimes he will say something that has me rolling! Sometimes it's me realizing I am not the sharpest tool in the shed. Often, it's just that we make each other giggle (I hope he agrees with that! hahah).

With that being said, I can't wait for the rest of our lives to spend laughing. I hope when he is pissed off, my doing whatever I usually do, can turn that frown upside down forever. I think that's a lot of what marriage is about. Realizing that you have to have a sense of humor. Nobody is perfect and you can't expect them to be. You need to realize that people are going to do somethings that are dumb. Now, yes, I believe there is a HUGE difference between CHOICES and knowing right from wrong, but something let's say like I don't know, trying to help with the electric work in the house and touching the socket, that's just something you have to laugh off. Or hold your breath for so long while pouring concrete, so "your lungs don't cementify" and then you almost pass out, dumb. But you know what, it made us both laugh and smile and it was SOOOOOOO worth it :)

And apparently the Chinese agree with me (or at least the guy or gal who makes the fortunes does) as you will see above. My thoughts exactly cookie. I will totally eat your words!

State of "un"panic!

So I am becoming slightly concerned. According to, my wedding is 197 days away. Woohoo! However, I don't have that "OMG I am going to pull my hair out of my head" feeling or panic, like I have seen some of my friends have as they were planning their weddings. This is starting to concern me. Am I missing something? If things are going so smoothly now, will they crumble the day of? Ok, maybe I really AM panicked!

Did your wedding planning involve large quanities of wine and crying on your MOH's shoulder? Or was it an easy, breezy process. Should I begin to worry?!
