Not quite what I had in mind...

Bags packed, up at 6am, and we were rarin' to go this morning. Verner was off to Vancouver for a long Bachelor Weekend and I (because the thought of being home all weekend, alone in our little studio, while he was off having the time of his life with his closest man friends didn't really appeal to me, if I'm being honest here) was headed to San Diego to see my mum one last time before the wedding.

So now you know that.

My flight left at 9am, his didn't leave until 1pm. 

I was in Terminal 3, he was in Terminal 1.

But because my soon-to-be-husband loves me oh-so-dearly, he took one look at my pleading eyes and went through the security line in Terminal 3 just to have a little breakfast with me and send me on my way with the 100th hug and kiss goodbye that morning (I guess you could say we haven't spent much time apart as of late?). He then sauntered back out of Terminal 3 and went through yet another security line in Terminal 1 to then wait patiently for his flight 4 hours later.

I mean... can you see why I'm marrying the guy? He's a gem.

Anyhoozle, last night he told me that Vancouver would be rainy and 50 degrees all weekend long and I had to feel a little sad for him because here I was, off to Sunny San Diego to work on my pre-Bachelorette weekend tan! 

Except then the weather gods decided to laugh and present me THIS situation upon arrival:

And yes, I'm sure I could have checked the weather prior to packing my bikini, shorts, and flip-flops, but eh, what's the fun in that?

Anyway, looks like my pool-filled weekend plans are a bust.

Oh, and side note.... 

My brother is off on Verner's Bach Getaway this weekend as well, so I thought it'd be nice to spend the day and night with my sister-in-law and their two kiddos (10 months and 2 years). 

So maybe, oh, 30 minutes after arriving? Both kids are projectile vomiting...and have been about every hour on the hour. Doc says: Stomach Virus! 

So here I am, elbow deep in kiddie vomit. It's been pretty relaxing, to say the least. 


Oh, but look! Looks like little Marcus might be feeling better! #fornow #dontjinxit

Here's to a Wiiiilllld and crazy weekend, folks!

Want to see my wedding dress?

There you go. Isn't that so pretty? ;)

My mom came up to San Francisco the other weekend and we went to my very first fitting. This would be the first time she saw the dress in person, too, so it was kind of exciting. I say kind of because I had gained a solid 4 pounds since I first bought the dress back in January and I was a tad stressed wondering if the already snug dress would be even snugger and then feared that the little old Asian seamstress would yell at me to lose 5 pounds.

Good news though! She said, "Continue eating and drinking like normal, because if you DON'T lose or gain ANY weight, then we won't have to alter a thing, which will save you at least $300."

Well, alright then.

So eat and drink I did. Gotta keep up the weight, yo. :P

We're in the 3 month countdown, folks. Shiz is getting real. And surprisingly, the stress and anxiousness has been dissipating too. Maybe as it gets closer it's just more of a "Welp, there's nothing I can do about it now" feeling? Or perhaps a bit of "Holy cow, we're going to be in KAUAI for 8 days and everyone we love will also be there to see US getting MARRIED because they LOVE us too and then we can party the night away together!!!"

Or something like that.

Anyway, there's my April post for you ("You" as mom? My soon to be sister-in-law? Yup, you two.). You're welcome.

As much as I do love writing, I have found that my Instagram has become my outlet for "posting". It's just so much easier, quicker, and concise-er, you know? You know. So you should probably check there. :P
