seriously...i am way too happy to be home right now. i've got the Travel channel on (something about a UFO sighting over Illinois, why i'm watching this i don't know) and a glass of wine for company, and life.is.good.
so, i realize that everything i've posted on here lately has been wedding-related, and for that i feel guilty, but really, there hasn't been much else going on in my life lately. those of you that are married are probably aware of the consuming nature a wedding can be. and those of you that aren't...well, all i have to say is START PLANNING NOW. i mean it. today. start soon, cause no matter how long your engagement is, i guarantee you will come up to the lastminute on everything and then be that much more stressed out. (okay, maybe don't start today cause that could probably freak some commitment-phobe men out. and then you might have to go to a random country in Europe somewhere and be a nanny for a year).
but this is what i have to say: why are honeymoons so freaking expensive? i mean, we're not made of money, and we're definitely helping to pay for this wedding. so i post on facebook today that i'm looking at all-inclusive resorts in MX (YES, Mexico, and if you don't want to go cause you're afraid of swine flu then fine, but i'm trying to save a dollar, okay) and i get like, 17 people writing me back saying, 'hey, check out _________, we loved it!' or 'we went to ______ on our honeymoon and had the best time!' so i then Expedia these recommended resorts, and they're like, 1500 per person! Lordy, we are not rich and don't have 3000 dollars to throw around....so we're back to looking at the $500/pp resorts, which basically make you sleep on moldy matresses and eat hot dogs for dinner. dang.
