Brinner, it's what grown ups do!

Tonight's dinner plans consisted of us heading over to Denny's for brinner. I ordered the Lumberjack Slam and sadly, Future Hubs decided to screw brinner altogether and order a burger. But it did have eggs on it so I guess that's kinda brinner-y. 

This group of young kids and what appeared to be a set of parents sat down next to us and I swear I overheard some seriously inappropriate talk going on over there. But hey, whatever. I was there for the brinner, it was late and I was hungry. So for once, I didn't say anything. Usually, I mutter under my breath, even that didn't happen. Maybe I'm finally growing up. 

Doubtful. But then again, it was bound to happen someday.

Life on hiatus...

The future hubs and I have decided to postpone the wedding indefinitely. We are still madly in love and have every intention of getting married at some point. We just have too many things we want to take care of before the big day. We'll get there, it just takes time. 

For now, we're basking in the glow of our engagement (yes, still). I'm still doing nightly searching on weddings sites looking at various things for the future. 

And all is right with the world. I'm in love and that's really all that matters.

Sunday, Sunday

Lovely breakfast with the FH before he heads into work. Today is a football day so pizza delivery tips should be good. Which is fantastic because we could certainly use the money.

I'm heading out shortly to do our grocery shopping. I really don't want to but it's a necessary evil. Maybe I can put it off till tomorrow. I really do hate it. Yeah, I think I'd rather stay in and watch a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy marathon on Netflix. 

I'm so lazy on Sundays and I love it.

What are you up to today?

Changed my mind, again!

I tend to do this a LOT so please, bear with me. I'm going to run several blogs at once. Or at least try. I've decided to move the FATshion blog over to another address and keep this one for wedding rants and every day stuff. So please add me here and at

As for my every day stuff of the day. Let's see. Just realized that Kona coffee is not "all that" as everyone has been raving for years. I'm a coffee snob but fiancee has everyone beat. He really likes a serious cup o' Joe. He gets so upset with 7-Eleven doesn't have his Dark Mountain Roast or Sbux is out of Komodo Dragon. He can't function properly without his special blend of whatever stuff he wants that morning.

I'm so bad, I "ruin" (he words not mine) my coffee by adding Splenda and creamer, sometimes the flavored kind. Did you know Splenda now makes flavored packets? The vanilla ones are awesome and this Diabetic doesn't feel nearly as guilty. So cool. Yep, it's the little things.

As for the rest of my day, it's all about the Melissa and Joey marathon thanks to Netflix and maybe a little SongPop on Facebook in between.

Peace, love and Sugar-Free Kool-aid kids.

OOTD - September 1, 2012

Thanks to some much-needed encouragement from friends and family, I've decided to try a little photo project involving me and fashion. Today's installment is what I wore today.  This idea is to boost my self-confidence and get outside my comfort zone, fashion-wise anyway. I will also be posting where each item of clothing (and accessories) came from.

 Super cute headband, I found for a steal as part of a 6 for $5 sale at Miz, my favorite accessory store.
Today's outfit includes:
Pants: Olive green cargo capris from Fashion Bug;
T-Shirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Ballet flats Torrid
Purse: Sam Moon
Necklace: Pendant from Miz; chain was part of a gift I got from the Christopher Reeve Foundation for donating to the charity
Watch: Sam Moon
Bracelet: eBay

See ya tomorrow! Peace, love and tiny marshmallows.

Cleaning out my closet...

Woke up with this morning with a bug to finally clean our ridiculously messy closet and the areas around it. We have this corner in our bedroom that has my grandmother's rocking chair in it and it has become overrun with clothes, bags, shoes, etc. I was tired of looking at the mess so I decided to do something about it. In the midst of my cleaning, I made an even bigger mess and I'm exhausted. But I did get more accomplished than the room implies. I'll get up again soon and get back to work. For now, I just had to take a break, get in a little writing and maybe waste a little time on a guilty pleasure or two (e.g. Mahjong on Facebook or maybe an episode of Dawson's Creek on Netflix). Either way, time well spent if you ask me.

I also finally managed to get the carpet vacuumed. I have been putting that off far too long. House chores are such a pain but in the end, I'm proud of the work I've done and will continue to do between now and the inevitable return to work on Tuesday. Ick, let's not talk about that. It's the weekend. *joy*

Maybe a Diet Cherry Dr Pepper is in order to go along to my mid-day break. Yes, I think I'll have some.
