On He Also Recommends Using a Kitchen Timer

When I used to do the online dating thing, one guy wanted me to meet him at a coffee shop. He was definitely reading that book when I showed up.

On Amusingly Horrible Things I Have Said: The Bracket

Don't see how 5 made it so far (should have been 1 in that round)...but 13 is definitely the worst of the two.

On How to Know If You're Having the Same Wedding as Everyone Else on Pinterest

Ugh. Sorry. I literally just this morning posted something on facebook (I know) about how much I hate this wedding trend. I see shabby chic, rustic, vintage everywhere on Pinterest and I am so NOT a fan. Give me classic, traditional with lots of roses and calla lillies, please! No mason jars, no cowboy boots, no old furniture and no chalkboards. NO. Also semi-related, there will be no rhyming signs (example "Love tastes sweet when hearts like ours meet" for the cake table = VOMIT), or pictures of ANYONE'S feet.

All that stuff is cool for other people. Just not for me. At all. Okay, done ranting.

On Quiz: Are You Being Insane About Choosing Your Bridesmaids' Dresses?

I sent my MOH two dress options, and she sent back four. She went more into it than I did! I plan on giving my girls (three) a few options from the same designer, they just all have to be Navy blue and ordered at the same time (because apparently, even if you order from the same designer, you can get dresses from different "dye lots" if you order at different times so you'll get different shades of the same color - never knew about this fact until I talked to a married).

On Quirks: Is Their Ignorance Our Bliss?

I call my dog "Booger" (his real name is Toby) and talk to him in this screechy high pitched voice when I want to get him excited, I use this same voice when I'm imitating my students to friends. Fiance has this habit of fake smiling in pictures, that looks very much like the grimace little kids do in school pictures when they forget how to smile, but know they have to show their teeth. His dad does the same thing. My mom always sneezes in triples, and then says "Shit" after.
And then Dad looks over his glasses when talking to me.

On How to Deal With Microphone Feedback

Fiance and I thought it was from his TV, so he put the audio through the stereo instead of the TV speakers. I still heard the noise, but he didn't...so I just pretended not to. ANNOYING.
