Woke up at 5:30 this morning having some kind of a weird nightmare. I don't want to be up at 5:30 on a Sunday.
There was suburbia, small children playing, birds singing. But we were at war (who knows who with) so we had secret stashes of ammo. But there was marshmallows stuck to the ammo so we had to get it off before we could use it and the enemy was in the neighbors house killing all her chickens.
The neighbor was a lovely Mexican lady who had saved a girl from an orphanage 6 years ago when she was 7 only we all thought she was 26. I know I know don't ask it doesn't make any sense.... none of it but there are so many stupid details.
We were finally getting the marshmallows off but we still couldn't use the ammo so we were chucking the marshmallows at the enemy.
Then the war ended - Yay! But we realized we didn't know what happened to the neighbor's dog. We knew the neighbor was dead. I could see the dog lying on the kitchen counter through the window and called her name (Mia - coincidence a friend's dog?) and she kind of wagged her tail. So I screamed that she was alive and we ran over to help her. And when I opened the door I could see the enemy had sawed off all of her paws. It was HORRIBLE
AND THIS IS THE IMAGE STUCK IN MY HEAD. Up until that point in the dream there was no blood or anything just this bizarre marshmallow chucking and panic. But that poor puppy lying there all sad and helpless but so happy to see me with it's feet gone is really really really bugging me. ANd when I try and fall back asleep it comes back.
SO yah. Now I have shared with all of you and you can have my nightmare too. Or maybe someone can tell me what this means - besides the fact that I should be seeing a psychiatrist.
Soooo until I can fall asleep without poor Mia in my head I'm going to sit at my computer and do bridey things with Minou in my lap.....

Today we did Groomy things. Looked at suit options for The Dictator. Well. We tried too. We want him to wear a vest and pants, no jacket. But there are surprisingly few vest options out there that don't involve buying a wool 3 piece suit. Wool + tropical beach climate = too much sweat.
The only option we found was doing a made to measure suit at the Bay - they are having sale next week, 25% off. But that is quite a bit more then we wanted to spend. But nice and it takes us back to a wool because we didn't like the colors of the linen. But it would fit the guy. He is very skinny and can't seem to wear anything off the racks.
J.Crew was always a thought but now we have less then a week to find out if it fits because of this one day sale next week. So I go online to see if they have express shipping to Canada (many of their men's suits aren't available in stores even if I did drive to Seattle) They do have shipping. ok. Try to order grey linen suit. OH no small pant sizes. ACK ACK ACK. Try to order grey cotton suit, sold out until AUGUST. Ack ack ack. Ok order same suit in different color, and same vest in different color, express them here, try them on, also order at same time vest and pants in right size and color so when they are in stock we don't miss out on them, hope the 'fit samples' get here before June 3rd - the made to measure sale. SO if we find out the J.Crew just doesn't fit him we still have the sale price on the made to measure suit.
I thought we had tonnes of time for this thing. The wedding is officially a year away tomorrow. But if you are trying to save $1000 on a suit you have to move fast. (J.Crew = $300.00, Made to Measure = $1300.00, unless we can get them to NOT make the jacket) It is hard to move fast when nothing is in stock though. Weeeeeeeee....
I think I found jewelry tonight. I keep changing my mind on things - have been looking at pictures since October. But things seem to be narrowing down now. There is less variety in what I am looking at..... But once again, if I don't buy this jewellry now a year from now it will be unavailable. BLAHHHHHHHHHH.....
Did I mention we did book the Villa? ANd our wedding planner???? YIPPEEEE!!!!

I'm having fun being bridey... hee hee.... You should all be glad I have a secret bridey blog so I don't drive you all nuts.... Soon I'll be back at work though and no more time for being bridey.
Not sure how to spell "Bridey"
Angie used the term before we went dress shopping. Said I had to make sure my hair was "bridey" and we've been doing bridey things ever since.
Pronounced Bride-EE....
heh heh....

mom is coming mom is coming mom is coming! Yay!!!
Trying to clean the house before her arrival. I do not like cleaning house and it is filthy. Been at it all day and already did a bunch last week. Still lots to do. Yuck.
Oh well. Wearing my new white spring dress so I feel pretty while I'm in the grim.
Tomorrow I try on pouffy white lacy beaded ruffled numbers for the first time. HA HA HAAAA!! Should be a laugh riot. Mom and 3 friends will be joining (Tdawg, A, and C) I'm sure they will make ample fun of me. I look forward to it. I'm sure I will cry and fall in love with one but I will not buy it. I will not. I'll let you all be surprised when the time comes...

Yay. Fun wedding silly times with friends.

Happy Mother's Day Mpm!!!!
This message makes us giggle everytime we hear it. One of us can be in a super bad mood and it will automatically make us smile... Little bit of mom whenever we need it at the press of a button....
Thanks Mom! Happy Mother's Day. I hope M took you out for supper with that $500.00 I sent him - heaven forbid it gets lost in the mail......
If he didn't I'll take you out when you get here.

Out with my friend C today and her 4 year old A and her 2 yr old Z.
We were all enjoying our starbucks in the mall. We were trying to chit chat but A and Z very much wanted to be a part of any conversation.
Z, dressed awesomely in cowboy boots, a Canucks jersey and sunglasses (wish I'd taken a picture) came up to me at one point and said - quite loudly,
"I pooped"
Her mother's head whipped around, looked partially shocked/worried/embarrassed all at once and said, "Right now?"
Z giggling, but not really knowing what is funny about it replies, "No."

You probably had to be there but it was HIGHlarious.
heh heh heh....

Had a good day yesterday with a bit of extra goodness on top....
hee hee..
First the dictator picked up our taxes after work. Let's just say I don't know why people don't like accountants. I LOVE accountants. We are getting enough $$ back to pay for our ENTIRE wedding (I mentioned it was going to be cheap right???) I was hoping to get enough for deposits but we have more then enough. I can relax. I am definitely getting married next year. If only I could get the villa, restaurant and planner to email me back - what are they busy with cinco de mayo or something silly?? Don't they know who I am????
Then as if that wasn't enough to put me on cloud nine - my garment has made it through the first round of judging!!!!!! I started panicing last night that it wouldn't make it and just as I had told the dictator my concerns about why that might happen my email beeped and there was the confirmation.
I've spent the morning printing out dressing instructions and what not. Next I need to get dressed and go out and get a box. But the puppies are getting a special treat this afternoon too - a bath and a trip to the vet so we will have to fit that all in somehow! WOO HOO!!! (They aren't sick just the annual thing)

So yah. Good things. Time to start figuring out what I will wear to the wedding and more importantly SHOES!
