Momma, Keep On Praying, Cause I Aint Changing, I'm Complicated

I am both melty and unmelty today.

I'll start with the melty so I can end on a positive note:

I stubbed my toe really hard last night. Hard enough that it hurts to wear shoes today. I'm not even wearing difficult shoes - I'm wearing sneakers. Hopefully it feels better soon so I can wear my gorgeous wedding shoes and not sneakers with my wedding dress.

Yesterday was the pub's event coordinator's last day. I have yet to hear from the woman who is replacing her. This does not reassure me.

I booked massages for me and Shawn on Sunday afternoon. Getting the appointment was frustrating and stressful (which irks me because I'm booking the massage so I'll feel less stressed, right?) I just got a call from the spa confirming my appointment for an eyebrow wax tomorrow morning. Ridiculous. Also? The woman who called didn't believe that it wasn't my eyebrow waxing appointment (I guess she thought I was trying to cancel the appointment despite their 24-hour cancellation rule) so she was pretty bitchy. I'm debating canceling the massage appointment now because so far I've dealt with two of their employees and both have pissed me off. I have a gift certificate though so that complicates my righteous indignation.

I am feeling both melty and unmelty about:

Joining Twitter. The possibilities for wasting time are blowing my mind. Come follow me! My name is Hillarywith2Ls.

I am going to experience my very first bloggy-life/real-life crossover on Monday. Angella is doing the photography for the wedding and I'm kind of scared to meet her. (If you're reading this Angella, sorry for being such a nerd.) There's a good chance that I'm taking some wedding jitters/fears/stress and projecting it onto the whole meeting a Real Life Blogging Rockstar. I don't know. My 3 major fears for the wedding are:
1: I will trip while walking down the aisle (brick patio + high heels + clumsy (and possibly tipsy) Hillary = potential disaster)
2: I will flub the speaking part
3: I will offend / annoy / disappoint Angella
I do realize that I'm bring crazy but at this point I don't care.

I am unmelty because:

First thing this morning I got a phone call from friends in Scotland, wishing me good luck this weekend. Definitely a nice way to start the day.

My friends from England put together a lovely video for me and Shawn that makes me cry and laugh simultaneously every time I watch it. They wanted it played at the wedding but there have been some formatting issues so they posted it on facebook. It's a good thing too - if I'd been surprised with it at the wedding I would have sobbed my wedding makeup off. If my head stops melting long enough to figure out how, I will put it up here.

In two hours I get to go home and then I don't have to work again until August 11th.

I have lined up 2 guest posters for next week, when I will be off doing fabulous married things. They are both hilarious and awesome so it blows my mind that they're willing to post here.


  1. Blogging Rockstar?


    Dude. I'm just a "nerd" who posts her life on the Internet.

    I cannot WAIT to meet you/shoot your wedding. But not shoot YOU. I'd like you to live for a while longer ;)

  2. I = also a nerd. No need to be shell shocked. I am so far from a blogging celebrity, or any kind of celebrity, it's not even funny.

  3. Nah. Angella is a blogging rockstar, don't let her fool you.

    I am so envious she is shooting your wedding. She is AMAZING at what she does. Plus, she is the nicest person on the planet.

    You are going to adore her.

    Good luck, and congratulations!

  4. Angella's just about the nicest person you'll ever meet and will put you at ease instantly.

    Have fun!

  5. That's terrible, about the spa. I hate it when people have a bad experience, it ruins it for the rest of us.

    I hope the massage is fabulous!

  6. I've not met Angella in person but have interacted with her online and via email enough that I feel like I have met her, and she is nothing but nice! Our mutual friend Brenda met her and said Angella was so easy to hang out with, it was like they'd been hanging out for years. :-) Congrats on your wedding, I hope it's fun!

  7. Go have a really fabulous wedding. Don't sweat the small stuff. And enjoy your first week being married. We'll be here eagerly awaiting your recap upon your return!

  8. I am so happy to be in the company of Ben--who totally doesn't seem like a nerd at all but rather, seems freaking awesome. As another self-professed nerd, I hope we don't turn your blog into a nerd-dom.

    Have tons of fun meeting Angella! You're going to have a blast--and that wedding thing? It's going to be pretty dang wonderful, too!

  9. Good luck and Happy Wedding Day!

  10. I am so happy for you! I hope you have an amazing weekend and wedding day! Enjoy your time away from work with you new husband. :)

  11. When is the wedding again?

  12. i added you to my twitter list. i hate twitter, but there i am anyway, twittering away.

    add me... :)

    happy wedding!

  13. Good luck and congratulations!

  14. Congratulations! (And belated good luck!)

  15. Yay! I'm so excited for you!

    I cannot wait to see pictures. HUrry up and come back! Or well, enjoy your lovely wedding things and then come back!
